Finn "karrigan" Andersen: RobbaN is inconspicuous and a great trainer

HLTV interviewed FaZe Clan captain Finn "karrigan" Andersen ahead of the new BLAST Premier Spring season. BLAST Premier Spring Groups will not feature FaZe due to the absence of both Håvard “rain” Nygaard and Robert “RobbaN” Dahlström.

Originally, Kristian "k0nfig" Wienecke had been supposed to fill in for him, but that didn't end up happening. In an interview with HLTV, Karrigan spoke about recent form and plans for 2023 before the substitution drama began.

As the captain of the team and the best IGL in 2022, he mentioned that this year he plans to try to win the Intel Grand Slam. It will be Karrigan's personal goal to win another title at IEM Katowice and make history once again.

As far as BLAST is concerned, Karrigan still thinks FaZe Clan can put up a good fight despite playing with zam. And finally, Karrigan shared his thoughts about the HLTV Awards. According to HLTV, FaZe players were strongly critical of their coach of the year selection of Andrii "B1Ad3" Horodenskyi.

In their opinion, RobbaN deserve that award, and the portal has faced criticism for choosing the best play of the year, even though they believe RobbaN deserved it.


Taking a look at what Karrigan had to say: "I think I need to write an article about how important RobbaN is to the team so people understand why I took him to FaZe, he's the best coach I've ever had.

Unfortunately, when you have an IGL like me, you're obviously ripped off as a trainer. […] Other trainers do more interviews and explain all the things they do, while RobbaN is always in the background. But when you look at our team and see how many times we've come back and you realize that we don't have a sports psychologist, then you should understand how important he is to help us have that never-give-up mentality.

[…] He also helps me stay on track and works to improve the team. It's also very difficult to coach an international team, I don't think people realize how difficult it is, and that's why he goes under the radar."
