The last time FaZe Clan paid for a transfer came in late 2017 when they picked up Ladislav “GuardiaN” Kovács. This is also the first non-Brazilian Counter-Strike roster that coldzera will play on.
The departure of the aforementioned GuardiaN and the benching of former in-game leader Filip “NEO” Kubski left two large holes to fill for FaZe. Picking up a two-time Major champion and former best player in the world is definitely a promising solution. They will also be playing with Helvijs “broky” Saukants who is on a trial period and will be on AWP duty for the squad.
There were already many signs of this move being in the works, such as Astralis’s Lukas “gla1ve” Rossander leaking a seating arrangement with coldzera’s name on it. Nevertheless, the transfer should help to invigorate a recently struggling FaZe Clan. Their first match of ESL One New York begins on September 26th at 2:35 p.m. EST on the ESL Twitch channel.
