true, when he joined faze he had a huge upswing. but imo on top of that weird break, after they lost karrigan he just started falling off more and more. like if you look at it when they got NEO, another actual igl he started going up again. NiKo IGLing was the final nail in the coffin to send olof off sadly
oh yeah NiKo igl killed everyone on that team. rain went to shit because he had to be hard support, cold was worse, olof was just utter shit. At least he got one last run in the faze team and had some amazing matches. I remember him dominating A Long on dust 2 for a match.
even if they only got karrigan i wouldve wanted them to cut kjaerbye before olof because we've seen when olof could do under karrigan with decent roles. and we've seen what Kjaerbye can do under Cold semi calling around him with the best positions (spoiler hes going negative in the best roles and looks terrible doing it)
Olof is completely done I think its clear he should just retire. Kjaer is also shit I agree, but keep him as 6th man or keep Olof as like emergency backup.
maybe karrigan can revive him but very unlikely
he is a servicable 6th imo. keep the players on their toes knowing there is a guy with a lot of talent that may take their place. Nothing to lose and you dont know what may happen to players so a good insurance policy.
sad to see how olof's career went. could have been in the goat conversation if it wasnt for that 2016 injury/faze clownery
"a lot of talent" is a big stretch imo but i also dont agree with 6 men rosters so im against it no matter what. also olof has won the most big trophies (25) plus he just single handedly shit on everyone in the fnatic era
I mean Kjear has a stretch with North and AST where he was one of the best in the world (Top 20 16/17 and Top 10 at some points).
Olof has a higher ceiling no doubt but I think his ace with tec9 eco to save fnatic's ass day's are gone sadly.
kjearbye USED to be a great player, yes. but he isnt anymore. hes somehow managed to get super washed up this young. and people forget that towards the end with North, he had the freedom to do literally whatever he wanted and he was still shit lol
thats why he is 6th man. you have him under contract just keep him on the bench playing and working. Maybe he regains his form and is used to ensure players are working hard to keep their roster spot.
better than nothing imo also in case of emergency you can use him and he is better than NaToShapix (he is a nice guy but hasnt been good enough for T1 since Heoric with friberg)
