What do you think Olof will do??
United Kingdom p0mpouS 
I personally think hell leave but im not sure if hell retire, i kinda wish he would just do a pasha and start streaming and i know his fans would enjoy that a lot.

I have a feeling he was told either get kicked or leave on your own terms and what Niko said in his tweet seems to suggest that.

They dont have a choice, the org can terminate your contract at any time and pay you off. Its basically get fired and it looks bad or leave and it looks like your choice, its very commen.

Ik but hes kinda making a fool out of himself to help the org. Why would he be so protective towards the org, its not his duty nor his job.
2020-05-26 08:03
No the org would be being nice to him to allow him to make it look like it was on his terms.

If they find a concistent replacement for him, he will leave. Otherwise he will make a short runtern until everyone realizes hes still not catching his old form. I feel like his days are sadly over.

The other thing is the lurk role Olof does isnt as effective as it was in 2015.

No? It's literally good for him... When you get kicked, there's a negative reason for it and it makes it harder to get a good team later on. It means the team had issues with you. When you "take a break", it suggests that you had simple motivation issue and you'll be better when you come back to the scene.
2020-05-26 13:19
an org terminating a contract is illegal pretty sure unless the person violates the contract
2020-05-27 05:54
i dont think it is if they the rest of the money. If you have 5 months left and im paying 20k a month, they can surely just pay them 100k and then just stop the contract.
2020-05-27 05:55
tbh it seems a kick more than anything else. he was really bad last months with faze and the team needed a change and i think it will be good too for olof myb if he find another clan he will be better as before but his time with faze is really done.

He should take a few months off with no CS at all, then a few more where he trains hard. In 2021 he should reinvent himself as an AWPer on a Swedish team. It would be a shame if he just left the scene at such a low point. That one amazing year in 2015 isn't enough by itself. His performances on FaZe have not only ruled him out of the GOAT discussion, but also the all-time top 5. If he came back strong for a couple of years and had another appearance in the HLTV yearly top 20 (even near the bottom) he could at least sneak back into the all-time top 5.
2020-05-26 08:12
Across his career hes like barely above 1.0 vs top 5 teams, it fucking sucks, i wish he just called in in mid 2018. Thr thing is he awped in late 2019 and he was ok, not great, just ok, i think he just needs to accept his times up.

There is and there isn't... Like I said, playing one game for thousands of hours after a while impedes your ability to play any other game. I remember back in the 1.6 days I sucked at Quake for a while because I was playing so much Counter-Strike it was unbelievable.
2020-05-26 08:41
Whatever he does he will go down in history as one of the most skilled and most successful of his time like Coldzera or GTR/Forest(not device -he's not as skilled compared to these players in their peak not simple/zywoo/niko as they arent that successful) etc who not only were great skillwise but also successful (like neo too in 1.6)...

I think Olofmeister will join a team to play with. Some rumours will say Dignitas but honestly I think Dignitas are better off with lekr0 than they are Olofmeister. Rumours say -Friberg and +Olofmeister, otherwise I think -Xizt and +lekr0 would benefit them more. Olofmeister being a free agent is definitely a good deal for Organisations like GODSENT and other low-tier Swedish teams if Olomeister wants to join any of them.

Awful idea, in my opinion. The rumour is also that they'll remove Friberg in place of Olofmeister, not Hallzerk.. Hallzerk is also Dignitas' highest rated player, so removing him in place of somebody who hasn't had a rating or more than 1.00 in six months is an extremely unintelligent move to make.

Haha - true. f0rest and GTR are proving they can still frag it out amongst the best of them. If Olofmeister does join, it'll definitely be a nostalgia trip.
2020-05-26 08:37
This might sound odd but im starting to wonder if Olof was actually as good as we thought, i think he was clearly a really good player no doubt, but i dont think he was this freakish player people act like he was there were many players pulling Olof like numbers and more around the same time as him in worse teams. I think its just that the fnatic lineup he was the first dominant CSGO lineup in an era where there were many good teams, NIPs dominance fell off before the really good teams came along. CSGO really got going in late 2014 just as that fnatic lineup came to power.

I can understand where you are coming from. In 2015, it was the Krimz/Olof show in pretty much all fnatic games... Krimz was Mr. Consistent that hit all of the shows he was supposed to hit and Olofmeister hit all of the shots that he definitely wasn't supposed to hit. There is no denying Olofmeister was the absolute best of that year but his skills were definitely overrated as a result. Since he suffered an injury, people felt really sorry for him and some users still blame the injury and nothing more for his lack of success (kick_friberg_ffs being one of them). His time in the limelight was cut considerably short, which is a shame as there probably could've been much more we could've seen from Olofmeister. There is also an argument to be contested that those players who never found the number 1 spot are objectively more skilled than those who in the number 1 spot: Device, NiKo and flusha are just a few of them.
2020-05-26 08:49
Yeah i would agree, i look at players like KennyS, GTR, F0rest, Device, s1mple, Niko and Zywoo, and i can see these players have had or have a level of mechanical skill i dont think Olof ever had i think olof was a very smart player in one of if not the best teams there has been. I dont think he was a ever a freak mechanically, hes not like s1mple, s1mple will drag shit teams kicking and screaming to finals, Olof was more a cog in the system but just so happened to be the best cog by a few percent.

I love Olofmeister but it's annoying when users definitely overrate his skills and success. 2015 was one of the most competitive years in CS:GO history and Olof definitely deserved all of the accolades he achieved because he carried fnatic in most games - they were the most well-rounded team akin to Astralis of now.
2020-05-26 08:57
I dont agree with the word carry, he had 3 world class players with him and pronax. I think Olof was 1.15, KRIMZ was 1.12, flusha was 1.08 and JW was 1.07, if you convert that to 2.0 they all get higher.

United Kingdom Jonty04l32 
In BO3 games, he dropped very crucial 30-bombs to secure victories. He was the most well-rounded player in the game of that year, he could just about do everything. Post #40, this is also true. GuardiaN I think at that time was the best AWP'er in the world.
2020-05-26 09:03
Yeah he was the highest rated player in t1 in 2015. The highestbwas xantares with 1.29 in ss, niko was 1.19 in mouz.
2020-05-26 09:05
With hindsight i think KRIMZ was maybe the best player of that lineup, i think the last 3 years have prove that, hes just as good if not better and IMO his still the best swedish player there is.
2020-05-27 05:48
In 2015 guardian, device and kennys had better ratings.
2020-05-26 08:57
I mean has he ever said his injury has caused him issues since the operation.

United Kingdom Jonty04l32 
I have no idea. I know his trainer and physiotherapy coach said it was a very severe one he has only ever seen like five times in his entire life or something similar, so it was no joke. There were threads going around at the time claiming it was fake, same for GuardiaN's injury but what do you expect from those types of HLTV users? Whether or not his game has been impeded by the injury since is entirely speculation. I think even if that was the case, Olofmeister would state otherwise because I doubt he'd want others to assume he wasn't giving it 110% all the time.
2020-05-26 09:09
It makes me think if Olof also was injured in mid 2018. Maybe the same thing has happened again, it would explain the last 3 events because to me he declined slowly from late 2018 to the end of 2019, but the last 3 events, damn.

Richard lewis suggested its was his father was ill and or dying, but someone at faze said something i cant remember what, but it sounded like he was injured, also he was back and then went away again without playing makes me think something flared up again.

I know something was up with his father, that bit was made public when it should've been private as the threads during that time were horrendously disrespectful. It's entirely possible an injury subdued, or it was the same injury he suffered back in 2016 - who knows? What we do know is Olofmeister is no longer in FaZe and the future is in Olof's hands now... I wish him the best of luck in all his future endeavours.
2020-05-26 09:22
No he is still in faze, hes on the bench, bymas is actually a standin as of now.

Ah, so not a free-agent but still on contract so he can be leased or bought as a result of it. That only furthers post #52's point for the coaching role in FaZe.

 |

I thought he would at first but I think the only thing that would inflate Olofmeister's price-tag is that he's a FaZe member; FaZe being the largest gaming organisation would definitely inflate the price. Without it, I honestly don't think Olofmeister would cost that much... His legacies were that of 4 and a half to five years ago.
2020-05-26 09:34
But his contract i think was based on how good he was when he singed.
2020-05-26 09:35

 | 
United Kingdom Jonty04l32 
No but as your numerous topics have slated, Olofmeister stopped being good a while ago... Surely that would've made a dint in his price-tag? If that isn't how contracts work, then I don't think anyone will fork out the money, honestly. I hope they do because I like Olofmeister and would like to see him perform again... it's hard to tell.
2020-05-26 09:39
There will be buyout that was set when he signed the contract i dont know how negotiable that is. I dont know if theyll just terminate his contract, then hes free. I dont know how long is left on his contract.
2020-05-26 09:49
I have a suspicion hes near the end of it, and they are just benching him for the last few months, or maybe hell play the RTR stuff so they dont lose 20%n if thats how it works.

Nice elaboration on the points I made earlier. I think this team could excel but the ginormous asterisk would be over Olofmeister's name and not GTR's, bizarrely. GTR has been performing as of late, Olofmeister has not. The rumour is that Dignitas will drop Friberg in place of Olofmeister but honestly I don't know if it's a good call. Dropping Xizt for lekr0 is one I suggested the moment lekr0 was booted from NiP.

Pretty sure he will come back. FaZe probably wants to replace him, but kinda hard to say how that will turn out since the org probably isn't investing anymore money after the coldzera buyout. Picking up 16 yo talents is great for expanding pro scene but that is obviously a gamble right now with having Bymas on trial. If the Bymas move works out then they probably found a decent successor to him already, if it doesn't then more headache for FaZe. That means Olof needs to be slotted back in to the team and we all know already that there is no money on the team to really invest in a top tier player that would improve the team.
2020-05-26 09:47
If bymas can pull a consistent 1.05 rating and not make silly mistakes its an upgrade.

We both know he wont do that. Hes too inexperienced and will be tested very hard as soon as FaZe faces a worthy team. But like I said, its a gamble and the payoff can be huge for them. Given the fact that they have no money to really go for a top tier player like ropz for example that would be the ideal olof replacement (both play lurk role)
2020-05-26 10:02

Broky had more experience though, but yeah if anyone can do it its FaZe. I guess most people thought broky would be out after his first tournament but hes still here and now hes really good
2020-05-26 10:04
If hes just being told to run in and kill his experience wont mean much on T side, if they use him for aggressive pushes on CT side then again you can mitigate some of the lack if experience. Hard entries just need aim and some supportive utility.
2020-05-26 10:07
I think he'll propably take a break for a few months or maybe until start/mid 2021 and then come back in an other, smaller team, which will propably be his last station until the end of his career

Yeah pretty much +1 to most comments here. I just hope that when he comes back he moves away from FaZe as since he joined he’s just been so quiet socially. I really feel like the move took away a lot of his character, makes me wonder if he ever wanted to leave fnatic in the first place. Who knows though; maybe this will bring about a change in heart and motivation. Whatever team he ends up on I’ll be watching and supporting him nonetheless, I just hope that his performance comes back up to standard alongside a return
