olofmeister joins FaZe, replaces kioShiMa

August 20th, 2017 22:12

After a 3-year-long tenure in fnatic, Olof "olofmeister" Kajbjer has parted ways with the Swedish team and will be joining FaZe. Fabien "kioShiMa" Fiey is the player that will be removed from the active lineup of the international squad to make room for the incoming Swede.

Olof "olofmeister" Kajbjer's CS:GO career kicked off with LGB as the Swede went on to make the playoffs of the first two majors playing alongside the likes of Dennis "dennis" Edman and Freddy "KRIMZ" Johansson. Shortly after, olofmeister and KRIMZ made the swap to fnatic, with olofmeister being a part of the Swedish squad ever since.

After defining an era with Markus "pronax" Wallsten in 2014-2015 and winning six tournaments back-to-back with dennis in 2015-2016, the team hit a rough patch and changes followed, with some of the core members departing to GODSENT. Both teams struggled to achieve much after the swap, which ended up being reversed at the beginning of 2017, reuniting the likes of Jesper "JW" Wecksell, Robin "flusha" Rönnquist with dennis and olofmeister.

olofmeister's fnatic days are now behind him

With six months under their belt and little to show in terms of results, that squad has come to an end as well, as the longest-standing member—olofmeister—makes the switch to FaZe after three years with the Black and Orange.

FaZe have announced that Fabien "kioShiMa" Fiey, who was a part of the squad from April 2016, is now on his way out of the team, making way for HLTV.org's #1 player of 2015.

Patrik "cArn" Sättermon said his farewell to olofmeister in the official statement, which you can read in full here, and announced the addition of Maikil "Golden" Selim and the new team manager Andreas "Samuelsson" Samuelsson:

"I want to use this moment to send my biggest thanks to Olof for everything he has done for us and the team. We all look forward to following your incredible career going forward. Please also join me in giving Golden and Samuelsson a warm welcome. The Golden era starts now."

olofmeister explained his departure from the Swedish squad in the following way:

"After a lot of contemplation, I have decided to step down from Fnatic and take on new challenges with Faze Clan. It has been a very hard decision to leave the organization that I love and the organization that has given me so much in terms of winnings, experience, friends, fans and great times."

"As good as it has been I have during the last months felt a slight lack of motivation, or rather positive nervousness, that I felt when I first joined Fnatic. I want that feeling back and feel that the only remedy is to try something new."

"Ps. And maybe, just maybe, people will remember a Olofmeister flick"

FaZe's coach, Robert "RobbaN" Dahlström, pointed out that they have now finally found a lineup that has the same goals and good chemistry:

"I'm super excited to have olofmeister on the team. It's a guy that have everything that you want. During my time in FaZe there have been alot of roster changes trying to find a lineup that have the same goals and in the same time have good chemistry, we now have that. Now it's all about practice hard and find the best way to use our players. Thank you kioShiMa for many great memories together including one trophy and a big welcome to Olof!"

The first LAN event for olofmeister and his new squad will be DreamHack Masters Malmö 2017, where Ladislav "GuardiaN" Kovács will have his offline debut for FaZe as well.

The international team currently boasts the following squad:

Norway Håvard "rain" Nygaard
Denmark Finn "karrigan" Andersen
Bosnia and Herzegovina Nikola "NiKo" Kovač
Slovakia Ladislav "GuardiaN" Kovács
Sweden Olof "olofmeister" Kajbjer

Sweden Robert "RobbaN" Dahlström (coach)

On the other hand, fnatic have added Golden from fnatic Academy to fill in the spot left by olofmeister's departure:

Sweden Dennis "dennis" Edman
Sweden Robin "flusha" Rönnquist
Sweden Jesper "JW" Wecksell
Sweden Freddy "KRIMZ" Johansson
Sweden Maikil "Golden" Selim

Sweden Jimmy "Jumpy" Berndtsson (coach)

How? They have no one left that throws grenades or backup stars. Karrigan thinks he can do it alone, maybe, but he can't. This will be a repeat of old FaZe with aizy and jkm. A bunch of stars running around, winning 16-2 or losing 2-16, no stability at all.
2017-08-21 21:41
very impressive comment.
2017-08-23 01:44
You fail to mention that the old FaZe did not have a proper IGL in it( Karrigan was not on the Team). The FaZe with Karrigan on it placed top 8 at every tournament even with Aizy and Rain as their star players

True. That is a big difference, but after watching the first FaZe games I see everything I didn't want to see, a lot of confusion and individual play. Sure, they haven't had time to practice and it's just online games, so it's too early to tell and a little unfair of me. My point is, you can be the best IGL in the world and still have problems getting these guys to fit together. Karrigan isn't the best IGL in the world, clearly, as his rep isn't the best in the business. He is good, I think, but good enough to change the rules of the game completely? This is worse than Fnatic who at least had Krimz and flusha to do the dirty work. A proper IGL is important, but is it enough? Maybe for a tournament win or two, but sooner or later one of two things will happen 1) The stars will lose confidence in his leadership and kick Karrigan, just like Astralis did. They will probably replace him with another star (think Pronax -> Dennis) and have great success initially. After the honeymoon, problems will start to show. 2) Karrigan realizes his mistake and kicks Guardian or Olof to make room for a more supportive element. It will probably be Guardian who goes because he's useless without an AWP and NiKo/Karrigan, even Olof, can AWP in spots that fit them instead.
2017-08-25 13:03
I agree. It makes no sense what so ever to replace kio with olof. Once they got Guardian they should stick with that roaster for some time. This just seems hastened.

Best in Fnatic is Flusha when they drive - if always clean or not is another story. at least after olofs time, flusha is the most consistent and clever player.

Since 2015? Fnatic started 2016 with 6 straight tournament wins, even if some of them came in 2015. NiP also won 3 huge tournaments during that year. So since 2017 would be a more accurate statement as NiP won their last towards the end of 2016.

that's true i think since both guardian and olof haven't been very good for a while, they will do fine in my opinion the star of this team should 100% still be only niko, more than one "superstar" can cause trouble i hope it works

And now fnatic's hope lies in a totally new, unknown player who has never played in a good team before. Unless Golden is a superstar I can't see how it won't take him months upon months to develop (and thus making fnatic irrelevant for months upon months) and learn how to play and in-game lead against t1 teams. Expecting kick after ~6 months.

If in late 2015/early 2016 someone told me there was gonna be a team with NiKo/Olof/GuardiaN in it, I would say they were delusional beyond saving. But here we are... NiKo is still a monster to this day, Olof & GuardiaN aren't what they once were, but if they can get fired up and come even close to their 2015 form, FaZe will be pretty much unstoppable. Hope Karrigan can make this roster work, it will be hard with so many "star" egos on the team... But I believe. #eZaF

+1, been saying this all the time, it's more a downgrade than upgrade since k1o only had one bad tournament where actually all of the Faze players sucked hard, olofmeister is a shadow of himself since 18 months, dude is not what he was supposed to be.
2017-08-20 23:16
They are crazy. K1o was such a good bombsite anker. He delivered 90% of the time. But its the same case with allu and guardian.. If you can get an awper like guardian you cant refuse. Same for a player like olof. Still think its a stupid change. Only way this will work is if olof is able to become a support
2017-08-21 10:32
Neither was allu. I honestly don't think they should've freaked out just because of one result, at the major, but hey, there might be shit in the team we don't know about. Also, even though I don't particularly agree with changing, it's still gonna be really exciting to see NEW line-ups play, so I'm all for as many shuffles as possible.
2017-08-21 03:09

True. On top of that, not only Faze had a bad result if we look at who was in the grand finals when they should not have been there. Everyone expected SK, Astralis, VP (every1 knows they are beasts in front of home crowd even during a slump), maybe even fnatic to make it deep into the tournament, but none of them delivered.

Don't worry bro CS Go is becoming full pug CS just stack aimers everywhere on your team and wonder why your results are so inconsistent hahaha. SK is going to dominate the scene for a while now, they already went crazy this year winning a shit ton of events it's going to continue, we can hope Astralis is able to take some events from them.
2017-08-21 00:29
SK has had their internal issues so I can only assume they will continue and show up at a later date. Astralis has the teamwork and not the fire power.

The best part is now Olof has a real IGL for the first time since Pronax and some can argue that Karrigan is a better IGL then Pronax is but we will see i think Olof being on this team lets off some pressure where he doesn't have to be the super star and can play his game and i think thats when we see the most dangerous Olof maybe if he can get back to being half the player he was in 2015 Faze is a team to be feared (as long as everyone clicks this team could turn out to be monsters)

2017-08-21 03:15
For some reason i kinda feel like this was GO's equivalence as when f0rest went to SK.

why did f0rest left fnatic
2017-08-21 06:56
If my memory doesn't fail me (it probably does) , i think he didn't get along with face or walle and he wanted to play with GTR but i think some of the other players in fnatic didn't wanna play with GTR.
2017-08-21 07:02
No, they both left fnatic duo to Na`Vi 2010 dominance. They are not used to second places, they wanted only to win. So, new super-team (SK) was created.
2017-08-21 17:35
yeah but GTR wasnt part of the active roster because some of the players didnt want to play with him
2017-08-22 01:02
Are you talking about GTR and Tentpole in early days or WHAT?

Very interesting team. If they fit in well, should be #1 But it won't be easy
2017-08-21 04:28
Kio's part: "Thank you kioShiMa for many great memories together including one trophy and a big welcome to Olof!" Did he deserved this?

So fking predictable! The only question is: who is gonna be a support? I don't see Rain being support, nor Niko... Too many stars won't work unless some of them sacrifice something. Kio was one of the best supportive players last year. I don't think it's a good change to be honest....
2017-08-21 10:57
why can't you see rain being support? his passive playstyle is very suited to support, more so than a star player. he has potential to being one of the best support players in the scene right now

Karriagan tweeted: "Will miss the problem @kiocsgoo <3 Goodluck in the future! Im excited to welcome @olofmeister to our team. A lot of work ahead of us." twitter.com/karriganCSGO/status/89937017.. I know they are still kids, but to speak in such manner about your departing teammate... really lame.

Why do you care so much about nationalism? Yes, we have a scene and we are among the few Asian countries that are able to export few players overseas. Is Faze a real national team? Malaysia has a gaming scene like any other country that you're not aware of. You should go ask Valve how many Malaysians own a steam account. And there's no time for you to wait now.

Karrigan is gonna lose control of this roster and he is gonna get kicked from this roster just like in astralis when they lose faith in his calling. I give it 2-4 months.
2017-08-21 17:04
nice
2017-08-21 18:54

2017-08-22 03:30
