karrigan on olof: "We have to look into our options for the future"

We caught up with FaZe captain Finn "karrigan" Andersen at the ECS Season 5 Finals to discuss Olof "olofmeister" Kajbjer's prolonged leave of absence and asked him if it's feasible for the team to go on using stand ins for the Swedish star.

The European superteam have acquired the help of the 23-year-old Norwegian Jorgen "cromen" Robertsen for the London event, and confirmed on thursday that he is also going to ESL One Belo Horizonte with them.

Before cromen, FaZe had succes with Richard "Xizt" Landström as a substitute until he signed on as the new in-game leader in fnatic.

The question is whether FaZe can keep relying on outside help to stay at the top of the scene, especially with the Major roster lock coming up this summer. We put that questions and several others to karrigan after the team secured a playoff spot at ECS:

What was your preparation like, coming into this event?

Obviously, we have been playing with Xizt for a while, and then olofmeister came back for a few days of practice. But he wasn't ready at that point, so we really didn't know what to do. We only had a few days to find a stand in for this tournament and for Belo Horizonte. So cromen came in, and I think he's doing a pretty good job. It was tough to play the first few matches with him, just getting used to each other, but he proved those people wrong who have been questioning his abilities, especially on Mirage I think.

There obviously aren't many players to chose from when stuff like this happens. How did you end up getting him?

So, there are a lot of things to consider when you have so few days to find a player. There's obviously contracts, you might have to loan a player without knowing for how long, you might have to take him from another team and all that. So we saw cromen was free on the market after having played with Heroic and he impressed us in Dallas, so it was quite easy to pick him since the rosters had locked right before we found out that we had to use a substitute.

I know the stuff with olofmeister is very personal, but there's been some talk about his latest leave of absence having to do with something different that what it initially was. What can you tell me about that?

I can't really say much. It's up to FaZe and olof how they want to communicate it. We just hope he does come back, we have no idea when it's gonna be. Obviously, we have to focus on ECS and Belo Horizonte and then we'll have to see what we're going to do for ESL Cologne and ELEAGUE, and then the player break comes, and then, a lot of things can change within a few days.

As you were saying, you were doing well with Xizt, and cromen seems to be an okay fit so far, but still, the core of the team, how does it feel for them, and you, continually being forced to use a stand in?

I mean, we were doing quite okay with Xizt, we knew that it would be temporary and just over the summer. When olof came back, we were thinking 'now were ready to rock and roll' and were going to come up with stuff for these tournaments, but then suddenly, it didn't happen. So obviously, on the core side, it was kind of a hit to our motivation and slap to the face. But we're here, we're just going to do the best that we can, and I think we're good at incorporating new players into our playstyle. We play pretty simple, and with the role olof has, there's actually not many tactics that he's actually in, so that's the big reason for why we have an easy time implementing new players, we can still run tactics with the old core.

You're calling this a slap to the face. So how do you as the leader try to soothe it, what do you have to do to make the other guys feel better?

We have to reset and remember that this is still only for the time being, at least we know now that we're playing with the same player for the next two tournaments. That's a big help on the motivational side. So, all in all I'm just happy cromen had time and that he was able to play for us, because otherwise we would have had to play with RobbaN.

I know you said that you can't tell us when olofmeister will be back, and that only he knows, but for how long do you think you can keep on implementing stand ins before it will start affecting your form negatively?

It's gonna be hard from right now. Astralis is the best team in the world, and I think nobody can really challenge them. I think we're the only team that can, winning five of the eleven maps they've lost in the latest months. So it's gonna be hard for us to keep implementing people, and I hope that after Belo Horizonte we have a clear idea of how long this is going to take, for how long will we need a stand in, or if we need a permanent replacement, we have no idea yet.

But it's definitely something you have to think about then, replacing olofmeister completely?

Yeah, we have to think about after Belo Horizonte how we want to attack the last two events, and then there's also the Major restriction coming into effect sometime in July, so we have to look into what our options are for the future.

successfull ? they have cant beat australis without olofmeister. thats a fact. and karrigan, rain , guardian and niko is saying the same thing.. :P they are playing vs low t1 teams to go to semis.. they are not going to win this lan without olof. and yes they did win a final 1 month ago with a stand in.. that was just pure luck.. austalis shoked.. that happens.. with olof in faze they are nr 1-2team in the world.. now they are nr 5-6 team.. in the world.. yes olof matter for faze clan
2018-06-10 13:16
they cant beat astralis with them aswell, so it doesnt matter. Olof is probably the weakest member in the team if not Karrigan, and he is easily replaceable.

Every analyst in CSGO thinks FaZe is weaker without olof but "ur mam" on HLTV says otherwise so it must be
2018-06-10 14:13
faze are weak because they are forced to play with a stand in because olof is a crybaby. that's why they need to kick him asap

Olof = crybaby? No I don't think so. Olof is a very professional e-sports player, whom happen to be part of a very professional e-sports organization - Faze. They would never allow him this absence if there wasn't a very legit reason behind it. What if his brother has terminal cancer? And no one knows when he will pass? What if it's his baby sister?(Don't know if he got siblings but). Olof isn't sitting at home crying over a sore thumb. There are tons of very serious possibilities, and seeing as no info is disclosed this is a private issue and we should all respect that.

thanks for that :) been waiting for a guy that is actually saying that olof isnt that bad. Ofc he is not the star player by far, but he is the player that is consistence for most of the time...

No. People don't realize what Olof does on FaZe rather than just frag. He is the one who mid round calls and in general is a solid player for FaZe. You kids just think as a good player being able to kill everyone, but the roles the Karrigan and Olof have are just as important as the rest and they set them up for success.

With luck Not skill. Astralis played bat that lan. Karrigans words. If they need olof to frag he frags. Olofs joob is not to get frags but informations. Look at olofs pov and see for yourself. How much info olof gets to his team. Inportant info. Olof is a key player. And its only e few pepole that can do the joob as good as him
2018-06-10 18:36
Olof is a legend but he’s washed up. Xizt too. They need someone like krimz or better if they can steal s1mple

krimz is a good entry fragger. but not a information player ;) olof`s joob is not to get frags its to call and give info for the team ;) you realy need to look in to POV of olof to see how mutch he actuly do for the team .. i olof needs to frag he frags.. if olof is topfragging in faze something is wrong in the team.. olof is not the fragger in the team. but he can do that aswell.. when olof had the joob in fnatic he did frag but he also was the nr 1 player to go in to site . but that was his joob. he can to that now altso.. like inferno banan controll. olof are one of the most importent player for faze in inferno ;)
2018-06-12 19:25
but in 2018 krimz is just way more mechanically skilled. olof was very average in faze. not bad, average. and yes, i know some maps like inferno and mirage he's a god on but tbh his job is just to be average.

Ofcourse they will look for replacements. One players problems should not be able to hold team hostage, becouse they are now always playing with standins. At the end of the day Faze was made to obtain throphys.
2018-06-10 11:38

It could be as simple as that, burned out. Best solution for Olof may be restarting on another team, and for Faze to look forward. Someone mentioned that Faze was made for winning trophy, which is well put. I'm sad about Olof, but I don't think he has a future in Faze. I have seen and read a lot of interviews with Karrigan and between lines in this short interview I see a roster change in FaZe after belo..... and i would not be surprised if more than 1 player will be substituted... could be right after cologne. All teams are getting more structured in tactics, so will Faze need to do.... new IGL?

+1 I like karrigan but the stuff he said in this interview was dumb. No point in adding additional pressure on olof or stir things up within the team by saying he wants olof replaced after a few more tournaments without him. He should keep his mouth shut until a final decision has been made.

damn... i created my account to be able to comment on this. i think it is very strange organisation is 100% supporting Olof but the players approach is starting to shift... Karrigan used to say "when Olof comes back" now it's "if he comes back". i think the faze players are getting fed up with the situation - i do not blame them - but they should still consider what is being said during the interviews. Olof has personal issues, he needs to sort those out before he is back - the players and fans should support him - reading stuff like that will not help. GL for the boys in Belo Horizonte :)

Its obvious he doesnt want to play in FaZe. Most likely FaZe will get NBK and olof will replace Golden in fnatic. He just can't play without his brother Krimz.

2018-06-10 12:33

I love Olof as a player and as a personality, and he probably has SOME shit going on, but the lack of willingness to be open about it and teasing everybody with a comeback only to just fuck over his team all over again seriously makes me support just replacing him. Like, I'm sorry, it can be considered a "dick move", but Olof can't keep dicking this team around for so long. CS: GO will fucking die out and be replaced by a new CS by the time this guy finds motivation to go acquire glory playing a fuckin' video game. Just kick him and replace him with somebody like NBK (which would be almost a perfect replacement for his role), and if he really finally gets his shit together and the other teammates really want him back and NBK doesn't work out, just sign him again. Having to constantly scramble for replacements like this fucks with not just the team's tactics, but the team members' patience and the organization's time.

+1 I really wonder whats up with him.. Imo he cant even be mad if they replace him, he has been gone for a while, and especially after announcing he was coming back, resulting in xizt going elsewhere and no longer being available.. Get nbk imo.
2018-06-10 14:12
You don't know for sure though what he's said to his team.. Just because he hasn't come out publicly about whatever is going on with him doesn't mean he hasn't gone into specifics with teammates/management. It's perfectly acceptable to not want to go public with something more intimate/personal in terms of issues. That's ignorant and inconsiderate to speak in a manner in which you're basically saying "he owes it to us to say whats going on". If one of your parents you're super close with had a serious illness and was in immediate danger, would you want to tell a mass of kids? Unlikely.

Yes I would, and I'm fairly sure most big name sports stars from other sports would too. It's not telling people or at least giving them some idea that causes problems as it leads to endless speculation, vicious rumours, constant digging to find the truth etc. None of which are going to help him if he has actual problems. Just be clear and honest ffs. What's there to be ashamed about?

I think NBK would be a great addition on taking the support role. Karrigan can have impact in terms of firepower and if rain, guardian and niko deliver they can beat astralis. Apex is an entry fragger and faze already got rain for that, so it's not really viable having that many aggresive players. s1mple obviously won't be let by org to leave and if they would, he would have a huge buyout
