FaZe Clan has announced the addition of Eric “adreN” Hoag and coach Janko “YNk” Paunović following the release of Karrigan. The news came via FaZe Clan’s official Twitter page.
Despite the move only being temporary for adreN, many fans want the move to become permanent as he is one of the top players around right now. AdreN will start competing with the team at the iBUYPOWER Masters in Los Angeles later this month, and presumably the Katowice Major later this year.
YNk will hopefully provide FaZe with more of a direction in 2019. Their performance at the end of last year was far from what is expected of such a highly skilled roster and as a result, YNk was brought in to improve the situation.
YNk recently left MIBR after a debatable time with the team. He stated previously that It does not matter which players you get into the team, you need to make some changes to the way you approach the game, like practice and some aspects of professionalism.
Implying that even though he had improved the position of MIBR, there were some underlying issues preventing their success.
Hopefully, with the addition of a new player and coach, FaZe Clan will regain the control in CS that they had at the start of 2018.
