Olofmeister stepping down from FaZe might come as a surprise to the FaZe fans, as after what seemed to be a long haul for a sable roster, the squad found their footing with Olof, Niko, raiN, coldzera, and broky.
Olofmeister has been on the apex of professional Counter Strike:Global Offensive pro scene for as long as one can remember, having seen things in Overpass which no one will ever see again, it is natural for him to lack the motivation and drive which kept him going for all these years.
FaZe Clan takes on GODSENT for DreamHack Masters Spring’s opening match tomorrow, while it is certain that Olof won’t be one of the five players who will participate in FaZe colours tomorrow, reports suggest FaZe have their prying eyes on 16-year-old Lithuanian prodigy Aurimas “Bymas” Pipiras.
Much like broky, bymas in an unknown quantity to the professional scene, and like many upcoming talents, his reputation precedes from FPL. The 16 year old has a foray with 1337HUANIA under his belt where he helped them secure Baltic Masters Season 3, arguably being their best performer. Last October saw him win the Faceit Pro League and his presumed arrival at FaZe Clan will be his first tournament under a professional organization.
Nikola ‘Niko’ Kovac’s hunches about prodigies have ended on a high note so far. Other ropz, sergej, and huNter mesmerizing the professional scene with their skills, one other thing they have in common was getting handpicked by niko to be labeled as an upcoming star, which the Bosnian did for Bymas last year in an interview with HLTV.
