FaZe Coach RobbaN retires

The veteran coach will assume a new role with CS2’s launch.

FaZe coach, Robert "⁠RobbaN⁠" Dahlström has announced his retirement from coaching on Twitter. His statement says he is moving on to the next challenge, although RobbaN has not publicly declared his future plans just yet.

The former SK Gaming and NIP player has shared the server with the likes of Christopher "GeT_RiGhT" Alesund, Patrik "f0rest" Lindberg, Marcus "Delpan" Larsson and Johan "face" Klasson. He made a return to the scene in 2016 as FaZe Clan’s coach, imparting his knowledge and expertise to younger players. 

"After many years of coaching, I’ve decided it’s time to move on to the next challenge. This decision hasn’t been easy to make but, in the end, I feel this is the right way to go."

RobbaN Fazing up

While his coaching career was off to a rough start, he has been instrumental in FaZe Clan’s improvement as well as keeping the identity of the team alive. Under his tutelage, he has seen several players come and go, and the most recent iteration of the roster was the most successful one. 2022 saw FaZe Clan win IEM Cologne 2022, ESL Pro League Season 15 as well as IEM Katowice. 

The team also secured the Intel Grand Slam 4 this year with an ESL Pro League Season 17 victory. While they couldn’t win the BLAST Paris Major, the team’s accomplishments are there for all to see.

His announcement hints at a new role for RobbaN with CS2’s release. 

"There is a lot to look forward to with CS2 around the corner and I will be sharing more news soon."

Counter-Strike 2 releases in Summer 2023 and the next valve Major will take place on the new game.
