Yacine "Yacine" Laghmari (formerly known as yzn) (born May 1, 1996) is a Swedish former Counter-Strike: Global Offensive player and a current VALORANT player and streamer.


Yacine started playing Counter-Strike when he was 12 years old but soon took a break from it and started playing American football. After an injury, Yacine came back to gaming and started streaming Heroes of Newerth on Twitch. When Counter-Strike: Global Offensive was released, Yacine started to play the game. He also wanted to stream the game, but his computer wasn't good enough. On the Swedish forum Fragbite, Yacine saw a thread about a scratching lottery ticket winner. He wrote a reply "If I had won, I would have put money on a new computer so that I could stream, and I would probably save the rest". After this post, Twitch user "n0llad" donated 18,000 SEK (approx. 2180 USD or 1930 EUR) to Yacine which he used to purchase a new computer.

In April 2014, yzn together with KNINE, Rebelz, KarleyG and Blote became a part of a new lineup of Begrip Gaming. The lineup only held together for a month and the roster parted ways with Begrip Gaming in May. In June 2015, yzn joined Ninjas in Pyjamas as a streamer.

In October 2017 yzn and his TEAM5 was put on the map after an unexpected 16-6 win versus Ninjas in Pyjamas in the Closed Qualifier for Europe Minor Championship 2018.

In early 2020 Yacine showed his interest in Riot Games newly announced Project A and on April 7th 2020 he announced his retirement from Counter-Strike: Global Offensive on stream by uninstalling the game. On May 9th 2020 Yacine played as stand-in for Ninjas In Pyjamas Valorant team and debuted as a competitive Valorant player.
