Aizy Officially Joins No. 6 North from No. 4 FaZe Clan

  • -

Philip "Aizy" Aistrup has officially joined No. 6 North the organization announced today in conjunction with his now former team, WWG CSGO Team Rankings No. 4, FaZe Clan.

Aizy will be taking the place of Ruben "Rubino" Villarroel effective immediately.

The announcement goes on to explain that this decision comes on the back of Rubino's own decision to step down after the teams quarterfinal exit at the ELEAGUE Major.

"Ruben told the team that he would like to take a step down, as he felt he was holding them back. Despite our combined efforts to convince Ruben otherwise, he remained adamant about his decision." 

The Danish player is thrilled to be joining a now all-Danish roster he said in a statement.

“I was super happy when North first approached me. I have missed playing on an all-Danish team, and it means a lot to me that I am coming “home” to players that I know and are comfortable around. I see a great potential in this team and I am looking forward to giving my all to make it a success!”

Rubino also talked of his decision to step down and his future.

“To step down from the North roster was not an easy decision, nor is it a short term one - it is something I have been thinking about for a long time. For me, stepping down in North is a risk, but it is also an opportunity to reconsider what I want to do with my life, because right now I am not sure."
