Anja Suder sheds tears of joy for ‘her’ Karrigan

Thousands of fans chanting his name.

The emotional upheaval echoing through the halls of the Spodek Arena at IEM Katowice 2022.

It was a sight to behold to see the man wearing a Polish hat during his walk-ons and the production playing games with the fans challenging them to chant his name in weird rhythm.


Special and surreal — two words to perfectly sum up the ambience.

But there was something more special, more emotional and more surreal to witness; Anja Suder’s ‘tears of joy’.

The love of her life, Finn “karrigan” Andersen, walked onto the stage, in the country where she has roots, and shed few tears himself.

Tears of joy nonetheless.

The legendary CS:GO veteran, along with his team, FaZe Clan, made it to the grand finals at IEM Katowice 2022 in a stellar fashion.

The road was full of twists and turns as FaZe is the only team from the play-in to make it to the grand finals, that too with stand-ins all the way through – courtesy COVID!

As the struggle finally nears to fruition, tears are bound to flow.

Faze gets ready to face G2 Esports in the ultimate bout; a battle towards the ultimate glory.

FaZe Up!
