FaZe announce signings of AdreN and YNK

FaZe have announced the signing of free agent Dauren “AdreN” Kystaubayev to complete their roster, while Janko “YNk” Paunović returns to a coaching capacity to complete the FaZe squad.

The 28-year-old veteran will take the place of Finn “karrigan” Andersen, who has been loaned to Team Envy. It is very likely that Nikola “niko” Kovač will be retained as the shot caller.

Interestingly, among the star studded FaZe lineup, their newest entrant will be armoured with a Major, having won PGL Krakow with Gambit, a feat which has eclipsed them having come close on many occasions, most notably losing out closely to Cloud9 in the Boston.

On the other hand, this is yet another big break for YNK, who is set to fill the vacant position left by Robert “RobbaN” Dahlström, who left the team due to the birth of his second child. YNK has previously had a stint with MIBR for 5 months, winning the ZOTAC Cup Masters in the process, but a poor string of results saw him on the end of the firing line.
