After a brief whirlwind of rumors, Filip “NEO” Kubski has officially been revealed by FaZe Clan.
The former Virtus.pro star was seen playing alongside the squad recently leading to speculation that Dauren “AdreN” Kystaubayev’s run with the team had come to an end.
It has in fact as NEO steps into the role of in-game leader on the team allowing Nikola “NiKo” Kovač to turn his full focus back to his performance.
As stated in a previous article, FaZe has struggled to be the force they were believed to become following their inception and tried the age-old trick of removing Finn “karrigan” Andersen but things haven’t exactly improved.
NEO is experienced in the in-game leader position and certainly has a plethora of experience to draw off of within that capacity. He served as in-game leader of Virtus.pro during some of their higher moments but also during some low points.
If his input can help give this team any semblance of consistency towards their higher form I would consider it a success. We know how good the four other players on the squad can be and NEO during his prime could have competed right alongside them in that department.
Only time will tell, but I’m slightly optimistic.
