"Everything turned out near perfectly". innersh1ne evaluates FaZe's performance with es3tag
FaZe's analyst Viacheslav "innersh1ne" Britvin commented on his Telegram channel on his team's success at BLAST Premier Spring Groups 2023, where they played with Patrick "es3tag" Hansen standing in. In his opinion, the performance of the European team can be evaluated as almost perfect, while the forced replacement ended up being successful.
With rain absent from the roster, the main task was to just make the spring finals, which the team successfully accomplished. es3tag was easy to communicate with, fairly flexible as a player, as well as motivated and in good form. It was nerve-wracking to realize that the guys had only played 3 praccs with Patrick before the match against Complexity, but in the end, everything turned out near perfectly.
innersh1ne also opined that es3tag's removal from NIP was a misstep, and that the Danish esports athlete's strong showing with FaZe will likely see him fielding numerous offers from other teams.
FaZe took first place in Group B at BLAST Premier Spring Groups 2023, having defeated Complexity and twice OG. This result earned the team a spot at BLAST Premier Spring Final 2023, which will be held on July 7-11 in Washington, the capital of the USA.
