This retirement stuff is bullshit. Olof got kicked. FaZe just didnt want it to look like they kicked a legend because they respect Olof and dont want to hurt his reputation...
And Olof isnt taking a pause. He is just waiting until his contract is over.
i think its more the fact the FaZe core appreciate him more and Cold being his opponent for so long respected him a lot, Broky prob looked up to him as a young player etc. It was prob because they all knew he had it in him and just wanted it to work out.
probably true. however i think olof knows that he's not performing well enough recently. i always thought he was okay, of course he's no heavy hitter anymore but there's barely any more space between broky coldzera niko and rain to frag if you're honest.
the "faze need IGL" stuff is a meme at this point but i think a player with a little more brain instead of aim would come in handy for them
You don't get kicked from a team like that unless you're the new guy like broky with weak contracts lol
Hes probably under atleast 1 year contract that would cost a fortune to buy out. Given his form I'd say it didn't come as a surprise that he would take a break and think things over.
Is he coming back? Don't think so. Will he join a new team? Uhm I kinda doubt it. Don't think another top team is likely to recruit him tbh given his age and current form.
Maybe we'll see him in Valorant with another NA side.
