In a strategic move, FaZe Clan has successfully secured the talents of former MOUZ star David “frozen” Čerňanský, filling the void left by Russel “Twistzz” Van Dulken in its Counter-Strike roster.
This transfer, facilitated by an agreement between FaZe and MOUZ to release frozen from his contract ahead of schedule, marks a significant change for both players and teams.
Frozen, a prominent Slovakian rifler, played a pivotal role in MOUZ’s success for over four and a half years, contributing to numerous triumphs, including two ESL Pro League victories.
His recent achievement with MOUZ was clinching the EPL Season 18 trophy in October, where he showcased his prowess with five consecutive playoff wins, notably defeating FaZe in the process and securing a decisive 3-0 victory against NAVI in the grand finals.
FaZe Clan, in unveiling their newest addition, briefly teased the return of Olof “olofmeister” Kajbjer Gustafsson, continuing the long-standing banter around benching and starting the Swedish legend.

However, the real announcement featured the acquisition of frozen, solidifying FaZe’s roster with a player who has consistently demonstrated top-tier rifling skills.
Frozen’s transition to FaZe reunites him with two former MOUZ teammates, Finn “karrigan” Andersen and Robin “ropz” Kool.
This trio, reminiscent of the successful MOUZ roster from 2019-2020, aims to build on FaZe’s recent victories, including triumphs at IEM Sydney, Thunderpick World Championship and the CS Asia Championships.
FaZe’s timing for the transfer aligns with the BLAST Premier World Final scheduled for December 13-17, presenting a swift debut opportunity for frozen with his new team.
As FaZe looks to maintain their winning momentum in the Counter-Strike 2 era, frozen’s experience and skill set are expected to play a crucial role in the team’s continued success.
