Faze coach RobbaN steps down due to personal reasons

Faze Clan will face another change for their CS:GO squad as Robert "RobbaN" Dahlström steps down from coaching duties.

The 33-year-old who coached Faze Clan from the beginning of the organization’s CS:GO ventures stated that he stepped down due to personal reasons. RobbaN became a father for a second child back in September. He added that the hectic schedules as part of the team affects his paternal duties.

However, he also said that he is staying as a part of Faze where he will transition to a different role.

I became a dad for the second time back in September and the traveling has been very hard for me. It has been hard to coach and still be the father I want to be. However, I will still work in Faze, I will have a different role that I will announce later in January.

RobbaN started his career in CS 1.6 as a player for teams like Ninjas in Pyjamas and SK Gaming. His coaching stint with Faze resulted to multiple victories at international events such as the ELEAGUE CS:GO Premier 2017, Intel Extreme Masters XIII – Sydney and ESL One: Belo Horizonte 2018. He also helped Faze towards a 2nd place finish at the ELEAGUE Major: Boston 2018.

I want to thank every single player that I have coached and the guys behind Faze that have been nothing but great during these three years.

The announcement results to another hole into Faze Clan’s lineup. Weeks ago, the North American organization opted to bench Finn "karrigan" Andersen who since then was loaned to Team EnvyUs.

Reports involving former Gambit star Dauren "AdreN" Kystaubayev also surfaced as Faze looks to complete their roster. They are just under 2 weeks away from competing to their first LAN for 2019 at the iBUYPOWER Masters, happening on January 19-20.
