EliGE on FaZe’s stand-in issues: Unfortunately FaZe is getting screwed by it

In an interview with us, the Liquid veteran offers his opinion on the entire stand-in case between FaZe and BLAST.

FaZe’s preparation and outset for BLAST Premier Spring Groups has been nowhere ideal for Finn “karrigan” Andersen and company.

Instead of focusing on aspects such as their map pool, their opponents, and other important stuff, FaZe have found themselves in a sticky situation with BLAST regarding the replacement of Håvard “rain” Nygaard. Here they hoped and expected to use the free agent Kristian “k0nfig” Wienecke - but that was declined Thursday morning despite having trained and prepared with the Dane for days.

Before BLAST issued its statement, we spoke to Liquid’s Jonathan "EliGE" Jablonowski to get his take on the entire situation.

- From my understanding, I feel like FaZe got some kind of approval from BLAST that it was supposed to be allowed. But then when FaZe got here then someone realized that they messed up and it wasn’t allowed. I mean that there were mistakes from both sides, where FaZe should have known that they submitted their roster that didn’t have k0nfig on it, EliGE said and continued.

- FaZe then had to scramble to find a solution, so I think it just really sucks on both ends. Whoever made the mistake and said it was okay to use k0nfig in the first place probably made the biggest error, and you know unfortunately FaZe is getting kind of screwed by it.
