Olof “olofmeister” Kajbjer has stepped down from the FaZe Clan active roster the player and organization have revealed. The 28-year-old will be taking a break in order to “regain” his motivation.
The Swedish star stated that he has “decided to take a break from Counter-Strike. During the last period I have felt increasingly fatigued and that I have been losing the motivation I needed to do myself, my teammates, and the FaZe brand justice.”
He adds that he still loves the game and will be taking the time to recuperate and think about his future.
Olof has been a member of FaZe since 2017 when he left his three year home in fnatic to join the international lineup. While FaZe had some successes, they never live up to the hype built up by the name recognition of each player on the roster.
It is currently unknown who FaZe will be bringing in as his replacement although some have thrown Alex “ALEX” McMeekin’s name into the ring.
FaZe CS:GO division:
-Håvard “rain” Nygaard
-Nikola “NiKo” Kovač
-Marcelo “coldzera” David
-Helvijs “broky” Saukants
-Janko “YNk” Paunović (coach)
-Olof “olofmeister” Kajbjer (on a break)
