Kjaerbye to replace Bymas in FaZe - Report
With his imminent signing to FaZe, Markus "Kjaerbye" Kjærbye will exit free agency after he left his long-time home, North, in July, having decided not to return to the Danish squad following a two-month break from the competition. The 22-year-old joins the Nikola "NiKo" Kovač-led squad in time for the start of the new season, which for FaZe will begin with their campaign at ESL One Cologne Europe, taking place from August 18-30.
The move will see Aurimas "Bymas" Pipiras leave the European roster after a little over a two-month stand-in/trial period since joining the team at the end of May as a replacement for Olof "olofmeister" Kajbjer, who had decided to take time off from the game.
In the short amount of time, the Lithuanian player got to experience plenty of high-level competition as he played four tournaments with FaZe, who managed to compete for top placings with the youngster, securing third places at DreamHack Masters Spring and BLAST Premier Spring Finals.
However, their last appearance before the off-season at cs_summit 6 saw them eliminated early at the penultimate Regional Major Ranking tournament, with BIG dealing FaZe two tough losses to oust the European team in the group stage.
