Amid exhaustion and losing motivation, Olof “olofmeister” Kajbjer has decided to take a break from competitive Counter-Strike. 28-year-old will step down from active lineup of FaZe Clan with immediate effect. In a Twitter post, FaZe Clan unveiled the grieving move, however, the organization has not hinted about a temporary replacement.
Olof revealed that he felt highly washed out for quite some time. He further said that his motivation levels had dropped and that didn’t do justice to the organization, teammates and perhaps himself. Swede intended to take a break to regain his motivation and then think about his future.
At present, it is unclear whether he will be coming back to the active lineup of FaZe Clan in future or otherwise. However, Olof had taken a similar break in April 2018. The veteran was back on the server in about 100 days with a firm vigour.
Olof joined the North-American organization in August 2017. During his tenure at FaZe Clan, they triumphed at ESL One: New York 2017, ELEAGUE Premier 2017, ECS S4, EPICENTER 2018, BLAST Pro Series: Miami 2019 and BLAST Pro Series: Copenhagen 2019.
Although, his performance at the recently held ESL Pro League S11 (Europe) and ESL One: Road to Rio 2020 has been unsatisfactory.
