When you go from Major Final to Americas Minor in the span of a year
Envy have announced on social media that former FaZe captain Finn "karrigan" Andersen has joined the team for the Americas Minor in January. This will see sort-of stand-in Matt "Pollo" Wilson exit the team after playing with them for about two months.

We'd also like to thank @PolloCSGO for standing in for us over the past couple months, and wish him the best in future opportunities
karrigan was recently benched from FaZe following the team's performance at BLAST Pro Series Lisbon. His in-game leading duties were also taken by Nikola "NiKo" Kovač multiple events prior. Earlier this morning, he made a tweet stating that he was envious of the players at the Major, subtley hinting at his new team.

Here is Envy's roster for the Americas Minor:
- Taylor "Drone" Johnson
- Stephen "reltuC" Cutler
- Noah "Nifty" Francis
- Josh "jdm64" Marzano
- Finn "karrigan" Andersen
- Zachary "Eley" Stauffer (Coach)
The Americas Minor is set to begin on January 22nd, with three teams having the opportunity to move on to the Major main stage in mid-February.
