The starting of FaZe’s 2022 noticed a sequence of event wins with the squad choosing up the primary three top-tier occasions of the 12 months, even successful with a stand-in. History is thought for repeating itself, and whereas Håvard “rain” Nygaard taking go away for the start of his youngster is welcomed information, the necessity for a substitute has appeared as soon as extra. FaZe’s resolution could possibly be steering in direction of Kristian “k0nfig” Wienecke.
According to Dust2, the transfer may ruffle some feathers. Olof “olofmeister” Kajbjer was FaZe’s unique decide in its place, and with two days left earlier than the occasion commences, the potential change in participant is perhaps elevating some eyebrows.
One unnamed workforce reportedly raised considerations with BLAST, as rulebooks disallow such strikes to be made, with others voicing considerations in non-public.
K0nfig not too long ago stood in for Heroic on the BLAST Premier World Final 2022, and held his personal, regardless of Heroic’s placement, and with Finn “karrigan” Andersen’s historical past of performing regardless of the chances, there’s likelihood this workforce may take some scalps.
IEM Katowice 2022 noticed Justin “jks” Savage don a FaZe jersey, with the Australian taking the roles of two members. The finish consequence got here as a shock to most, with FaZe finally successful, regardless of substitutions left, proper, and middle.
The BLAST Spring teams discipline a set of prime groups, all duking it out in an effort to solidify their place within the Spring Final later within the 12 months. The groups that fail to progress by to the ultimate phases will make their means into the Spring Showdown in April. While the stakes aren’t at their highest, the affect a poor efficiency can have is perhaps the distinction in enjoying at future BLAST tournaments all year long.
