Xizt joins FaZe as olofmeister takes leave of absence
FaZe have announced that they have completed the signing of Ninjas in Pyjamas member Richard "Xizt" Landström.
The transfer has been announced by both organisations on Social Media and confirmed to HLTV.org by sources close to the teams.
Richard "Xizt" Landström will be replacing Olof "olofmeister" Kajbjer, who has been forced to take a leave of absence due to personal reasons. As suspicious as it is, due to this being April Fool's Day, the deal had to be announced by the end of the day as FaZe are due to play their next ESL Pro League match on Tuesday and roster changes in this competition "must be requested at least 48 hours before the next scheduled match".
He came close to joining fnatic last month, but the Swedish side decided to keep Maikil "Golden" Selim on the roster in the end after winning IEM Katowice and the WESG World Finals. Cloud9 then opened talks with NiP, but the transfer was hijacked by FaZe at the last minute.
FaZe now have:
Olof "olofmeister" Kajbjer (leave of absence)
