According to a report by MIRAA, Joakim "jkaem" Myrbostad will be elevated to the starting lineup for No. 4 FaZe Clan at the DreamHack Masters Las Vegas tournament after being benched since November 2016.

This change comes on the heels of another recent announcement that mousesports' Nikola "NiKo" Kovac will replace Philip "aizy" Aistrup on the FaZe Clan roster following aizy’s transfer to No. 6 North after DreamHack Masters Las vegas. This will be NiKo’s last hurrah with mousesports.
