Joakim “jkaem” Myrbostad will be replaced in FaZe Clan’s Counter-Strike lineup by recently benched player Fabien “kioShiMa” Fiey, according to sources close to the team.
kioShiMa will step in immediately against mouseports in their ECS Season 2 matchup Thursday, and the team hopes to have him in the United States in time to participate in the iBuyPower Masters tournament this weekend in California.
After losing his starting spot to newly-added member Finn “Karrigan” Andersen, kioShiMa always remained an option for the team if jkaem did not elevate his performance at ELEAGUE Season 2 and the ESL Season 4 Pro League Finals. After providing an underwhelming performance at both events, jkaem will take a step back from the team for the immediate future.
