The formation of the FaZe Clan superteam featuring Guardian, Karrigan, Rain, NiKo and Olofmeister once looked set to dominate the CS:GO landscape, however despite a few notable wins, it never quite materialised as many had expected.

Esports historian and journalist, Duncan ‘Thorin’ Shields, has worked in conjunction with the team at Dexerto to release a documentary to cover the failings of what many predicted to be the next CS:GO dynasty.

The journey starts with the formation of the multi-million dollar team, featuring five of the best players in the world, in an era where flashy plays and individual performances could trump cold hard tactics.


We follow FaZe’s journey from the initial success to Major disappointment, all the way through to Karrigan’s eventual exit from the squad.

This is the first of a number of planned documentaries scripted and narrated by Thorin, covering a wide range of subjects from CS:GO through to League of Legends and Overwatch.
