karrigan: "I think right now we might go under some people's radar"

FaZe's Finn "karrigan" Andersen believes that his team is currently being underestimated by their opponents, yet he is confident in their ability to exceed expectations at IEM Katowice 2023. The Dane shared these thoughts in a recent interview with the organizers of the prestigious tournament.

I can image FaZe being one of the teams lifting the trophy at IEM Katowice 2023. We're not ranked number one in the world. I think right now we might go under some people's radar. We feel prepared. We didn't have the best preparation but I think we have been a team that even not with the best preparation we can still hit peak performance.

karrigan also assessed the high level of competition in Group A at IEM Katowice 2023, where FaZe compete, and noted the positive attitude in the team after the return of Håvard "rain" Nygaard and Robin "RobbaN" Dahlström from inactivity.

Our group is very very tough. It's going to be a bloodbath and some big names are going to be out early, so hopefully we can remain strong. I think it just comes down to mentality. The mood is so good in our camp right now. We're just happy to have RobbaN and rain back. It creates a little honeymoon and that's good during the winter here in Katowice.

In their first match at IEM Katowice 2023, FaZe defeated Team Spirit. Today, February 5, at 18:00 MSK, the team will face off against G2 in the upper bracket semifinal of Group A.
