It looks like OpTic Gaming caster Jack ‘CouRage’ Dunlop is no longer part of FaZe - not that he was actually signed on to the team, to begin with.
CouRage announced his ‘retirement’ in a tweet just three hours after FaZe trolled their fans by ‘revealing’ that the caster was a new addition to their Call of Duty team.
He took shots at FaZe CoD player Dillon ‘Attach’ Price (in good humor, of course), and stated that he would be moving on to competitive Just Dance, instead.
“I have decided to step down from FaZe Call of Duty because Attach already started to annoy me,” he wrote. “I’ll be seeking more offers for professional Just Dance teams.”

FaZe Attach responded to the Tweet in kind, giving a joking ‘goodbye’ message to his faux teammate.
“It was an awesome time teaming with you,” he said. “At least we can say our team never lost a match while we were together. Good luck in the future 🍩❤️”

Many other members of FaZe replied, as well, all with humorous takes on CouRage’s response to their trolling.
Of course, CouRage had already been ‘dropped’ by FaZe after OpTic gaming got in on the joke, reminding them of CouRage’s infamous 0-15 record in a Black Ops 3 wager match.
FaZe's search for a fifth addition to their CoD team continues, as revealed in their retweet of CouRage’s statement. While no players have yet been confirmed, sources have hinted that a former OpTic and FaZe player could be making their way back into the FaZe ranks.
