FaZe Clan, a prominent name in esports, has made a significant move by adding Scott “Pandxrz” Maynard and Nelson “Xeratricky” Medina to their Apex Legends team. This decision comes as a strategic revamp ahead of ALGS Year 4, following their team’s drop in November 2023.

New Additions to FaZe Clan

  • Former FURIA Players: Both Pandxrz and Xeratricky were previously part of FURIA and have now been brought into the FaZe fold.
  • Joining Veteran Snip3down: They will team up with long-standing FaZe member, Eric “Snip3down” Wrona, who has been with FaZe since October 2022.

  • Background: An esports legend, Snip3down has been with FaZe Clan since December 2021, initially joining their Halo roster.

Pandxrz and Xeratricky’s Journey

  • Rise in ALGS: The duo rose to prominence in the 2022 ALGS Championship with FURIA, known for their unconventional and aggressive playstyle.
  • Post-Championship Scenario: Despite their initial success, the team’s performance dwindled post-2022 Champs, leading to their eventual split and search for new opportunities.

FaZe Clan’s Prospects in ALGS Year 4

  • A Potent Trio: The combination of Snip3down, Pandxrz, and Xeratricky brings a blend of experience and skill, setting FaZe Clan up for potential success.
  • Challenging Region: Competing in North America, one of the toughest regions in ALGS, will test the team’s capabilities.

Team Dynamics and Strategy

  • Controller and MnK Players: Snip3down and Pandxrz are controller players, while Xeratricky uses mouse and keyboard.
  • Current Legend Composition: In recent scrims, the team has been playing with Snip3down on Bloodhound, Pandxrz on Bangalore, and Xeratricky on Conduit, a standard setup that might evolve as the season progresses.

A New Chapter for FaZe Clan in ALGS

With the ALGS Pro League kicking off this weekend, FaZe Clan’s refreshed lineup is poised to make a strong impact. The synergy between Snip3down, Pandxrz, and Xeratricky will be crucial as they strive for success in the highly competitive ALGS Year 4.
