WTF?! CS:GO fans react to Kjaerbye-to-FaZe reports

FaZe Clan are reportedly in the process of shaking up their roster in time for ESL One Cologne, with the addition of Markus 'Kjaerbye' Kjaerbye in place of Aurimas 'Bymas' Pipiras.

The report surfaced via Cybersport and was later 'confirmed' by HLTV, sparking huge reaction from Counter-Strike fans.

Dane Kjaerbye, 22, announced his departure from North earlier in July.


FaZe Clan are due to end their summer break when their ESL One Cologne schedule gets under way on August 18.

Before the roster change, FaZe were priced at 10.0 to win the European region.

How FaZe's CS:GO roster would look with Kjaerbye

If the move is confirmed, FaZe's roster will look like this:

  • Havard 'rain' Nygaard
  • Nikola 'NiKo' Kovač
  • Marcelo 'coldzera' David
  • Helvijs 'broky' Saukants
  • Markus 'Kjaerbye' Kjaerbye
  • Janko 'YNk' Paunović - coach

Community reaction

Kjaerbye's move to FaZe would be surprising to say the least and members of the CS:GO community were quick to share their views.
