FaZe Clan PUBG: Gorilla Core PUBG Line-Up Acquired

The North American esports organization FaZe Clan announced that they have acquired the former Gorilla Core Esports PUBG line-up. The team consists of Max “MeTor” Lion, Anssi “Mxey” Pekkonen, Jere “Jembty” Kauppinen, Adrian “Haxete” Blom, and David „fuzzface” Tillberg Persson.

Statement from the team’s manager and coach Ramon “Zephyr” Perez:

I’ve been following FaZe since CoD Days. As soon as I heard about the organizations reaching out left, right, and center. I immediately said; what about FaZe Clan? Then it happened! I’m beyond thrilled and we’ll all work hard to prove that we are a top tier team. #FaZeUp

Statement from the Gorilla Core CEO, Bruno Santos:

“To the FaZe Clan fans,

I’m honored to be joining the community and can’t wait to get to work. We have been contacted by so many organizations over the last few months, but it’s always been about hardcore business. When FaZe Clan called us; we had an incredible talk and shared some good laughs together. We really connected; they’re great people.
FaZe Clan is probably the only massive organization left that has been able to organically grow without any external funding and that allows them to be true to their fans, be themselves, try and fail, raise up again and move forward. If they can keep this up; it’ll be an incredible story. It’s real and so inspiring!
I’m really proud to become part of this. I have to admit – I’ve been following FaZe Clan for years and to see the boys grow up has been both entertaining and awesome. FaZe Clan has some great plans ahead and I’ll do my best to execute and live up to their expectations. I guess it’s only one thing to say; FaZe Up!!”


Due to private issues, team captain Max “MeTor” Lion won’t be attending the IEM Oakland PUBG Invitational on November 18/19, 2017. To resolve this matter, David “fuzzface” Tillberg Persson recently left the Team Kinguin line-up to join the team for the competition. However, it is unclear if he will remain a part of the team after the invitational.
