We spoke to FaZe Clan’s Håvard ‘rain’ Nygaard at ESL One: Cologne 2018 about the team’s preparation for the tournament, their biggest rival for the title, and the possibility of Jørgen ‘cromen’ Robertsen becoming a permanent member.

FaZe Clan’s CS:GO team had the perfect start to their ESL One: Cologne campaign, defeating all of their Group Stage opponents to skip the quarter-finals and advance directly to the semi-finals on July 7th.


The international roster is still playing with Cromen as a stand-in for Olof ‘olofmeister’ Kajbjer, who is taking an extended break from activity, but that doesn’t seem to be causing them much concern.

In fact, rain seems confident that they have a chance to win the $300,000 tournament and he’s not ruling out the possibility of Cromen becoming a full time member if that happens.

Speaking to Dexerto on the team’s day off before the semi-finals get underway, the Norwegian star made it clear that Cromen fits in well with the team both in game and out:

“Cromen came into the team and there was like instantly a hit. He’s a really good guy outside of the game, he’s really chilled, he’s really calm, so he fit into the team pretty good […]

We like to hang around each other, and then go out to eat, go and have lunch, whatever it is, so we need to have a guy that’s not socially awkward,”

He goes on to reveal that the team has not been practicing since ECS Season 5. Instead, the players have been concentrating on their individual levels and Finn ‘karrigan’ Andersen is calling on the fly from there!

When asked whether he will ever try to use the FaZe branding to begin a career on Twitch or YouTube, the talented player reveals that YouTube is not for him but he is not ruling out the possibility of a streaming career in the future.

Liazz reportedly joining Gen.G after 100 Thieves CSGO split

The former members of 100 Thieves are some of CS:GO’s hottest free agents right now, and Gen.G might have snagged themselves one. Jay ‘Liazz’ Tregillgas is reportedly set to join the North America team, filling in for one of Damian ‘daps’ Steele and Sam ‘s0m’ Oh.

The brakes were pulled on Gen.G’s CS:GO project after the departure of IGL daps and rising star s0m. The duo moved to Valorant, becoming the first two core members of NRG. However, not all hope is lost for the up-and-coming squad.

With 100 Thieves pulling out of CS:GO, most of the highly sought after Aussie core is up for grabs. Gen.G might have just snapped up one of the best prospects.

Liazz is set to join Gen.G CS:GO as their newest member, according to reports from DBLTAP. The 23-year-old Australian was hitting a purple patch just as 100 Thieves dropped his roster on their way out of the title.

Liazz joined the 100 Thieves core back in September 2018, when it was still known as Renegades. He was known as one of the best riflers in Australia, having led the Order squad to the top of Australian CS:GO before going international.

On 100 Thieves, things weren’t as smooth sailing. While it started off well with a second-place at IEM Beijing 2019, and ended well with another runner-up spot at ESL Pro League Season 12 NA, the middle section was patchy.

The core hasn’t won a title since the Katowice Asia Minor back in January 2019, often placing behind the likes of Furia, Team Liquid, and Evil Geniuses in North America.

Gen.G have shown a lot of promise, although this has waned with the departure of s0m and daps. While the team got off to a blistering start by winning DreamHack Open Anaheim and the ESL One Road to Rio, they’ve fallen off recently.

Liazz was a part of the Renegades-100 Thieves core for two years.

Playing with Danny ‘cxzi’ Strzelczyk as a stand-in, they finished ESL Pro League Season 12 NA in 5-6th. The roster shuffle is going to affect their RMR points too, given daps and s0m were on the team during the first qualifiers.

Gen.G is yet to make a public statement on the reports. Liazz also has yet to publicly comment. We will update you as more information arises.
