In an interview with cybersports.ru, FaZe’s Marcelo “Coldzera” David revealed his organization’s future plans with going into the 2021 pro circuit. The 26yo 2x Major winner talked about his teammate Olof “olofmeister” Gustafsson who will be retiring from competitive CSGO.
Olofmeister will be ending his 8-year long illustrious career at Counter-Strike, where during his time at the same, he went on to win two Majors in the same year (2015) with Fnatic. In 2016, he was adjudged as the 6th best player and 19th in 2017 by HLTV.Org. Olof, who was on a hiatus until October 2020, chose to represent FaZe after he was poised to fill in the void left by Nikola “NiKo“ Kovac on the active roster which saw the latter joining the multi-talented french side G2 Esports.
Coldzera added, “In the near future, we planned to make two replacements, the transition of Twistzz has already been announced. The next step will be to replace olofmeister, who will end his career. He doesn’t want to play Counter-Strike anymore. We will announce the name of the fifth player in March or April.”
The European Mixture underwent a plethora of roster changes which saw Aurimas “Bymas” Pipiras taking over the sovereignty after Olof’s decision in May 2020 but was soon replaced by Markus “Kjaerbye” Kjærbye on the starting five.
What’s next for FaZe Clan?
Lately, Finn “Karrigan” Anderson, the In-game leader at Mousesports had been linked to his former team whom he represented from 2016 till 2018 after he was recognized by Coldzera as the best In-game leader from across the globe along with Lukas “gla1ve” Rossander, and Gabriel “FalleN” Toledo.
According to Coldzera, FaZe will announce their fifth player in either March or April. The European side had recently signed Russel “Twistzz” Van Dulken from Team Liquid which saw Kjaerbye moving to the bench.
FaZe Clan will play Team Liquid on Feb 13th at the BLAST Premier Spring series in a bid to qualify for the finals scheduled to be held in June.
