FaZe Clan decided to replace Alexi "allu" Yally with the Slovak sniper Ladislav "GuardiaN" Kovacs, who previously played for the Natus Vincere team and went into inactivity.
"Over the years, the Guardian has played a big role in the Natus Vincere team, and we've achieved many victories, survivals and ups and downs, but now it's time for our roads to disperse." This is a necessity for us and Ladislav. We wish him success in the new organization and believe that someday there will be a chance to meet in the final of the major! " - Evgeny Zolotarev, CEO of Natus Vincere.
"We were undoubtedly glad that GuardiaN will join us.The players are happy to want to work with him.Thanks to Alexi, in recent years.We have passed a lot, you are a talented player, good luck!" - Robert "RobbaN" Dalström, coach of FaZe.
Recall that Ladislav "GuardiaN" Kovacs was in the Na'Vi since December 2013. Together with him, the team twice took second place in the major championships, and also won the DreamHack and ESL series. After an unsuccessful performance on the last major, Kovacs was put on a transfer.
The FaZe GuardiaN will enter at the end of this month, when the European division of the ESL Pro League S6 tournament, scheduled for August 22, will start.
FaZe's composition is as follows:
Finn "karrigan" Andersen
Fabien "kioShiMa" Fie
