olofmeister on retirement: "I haven't made my mind up yet"

The Swedish veteran does not rule out continuing to compete.

Olof "⁠olofmeister⁠" Kajbjer's career may not be at an end despite his imminent departure from FaZe. In a post-match interview following FaZe's dominant victory over Liquid, the 29-year-old revealed that he has not come to a final decision regarding his career prospects after the change to the international team's roster comes to fruition.

"When I took the break with FaZe, that was my idea to think about what I want to do," olofmeister explained. "I have retirement in my mind, but I haven't decided on anything yet. I see a lot of people writing and I don't want to say anything until it all becomes official, but I haven't made my mind up yet, so I just want to say that."

The two-time Major champion is still pondering his future

The statement from olofmeister comes after Marcelo "⁠coldzera⁠" David stated in recent interviews that the Swedish player was set on retiring. In an interview with HLTV.org published earlier on Friday, the Brazilian said that FaZe will soon announce a new in-game leader, who is understood to be Finn "⁠karrigan⁠" Andersen. The Danish player is currently without a team after being replaced by Christopher "⁠dexter⁠" Nong on MOUZ.

olofmeister, who was named the best player of 2015, has gotten off to a strong start in the BLAST Premier Spring Groups, averaging a 1.36 rating in FaZe's win over Liquid. The team are next slated to take on Natus Vincere in the Group C upper bracket final on Saturday at 16:30 .

that smaller team would become less smaller team. he has still things to give to top tier. but i also understand if he has personal reasons to retire or become coach or work with cs somehow and i hope he does.

2021-02-13 12:23
Why not make a team with flusha & Lekr0 ? Could be really nice if they could get HEAP & f0rest too... But there are some young swedes with good potential like jayzar or bq/isak. Oh and I forgot that twist was also available 😅

I don't know man, he is a legend, no one doubts that, but maybe it's a good time to retire as a legend, not as a player who became really bad. Anyway, whatever he choses next, I wish him GL, he is a legend.

" the salary is too good and I just got a reality check about what work is about while exploring my real life options ... so I'll probably stick to CS as long as some t1-t2 team wants me "

Don't retire! Find your motivation and come back. You can still kick ass, the only reason why you havn't performed the last couple of years is because you weren't motivated. You still have great skill.

Man, I wouldn't retire. They just smashed the 5th best team of the world (according to the HLTV rankings). So that's a promising start for a good run. He probably makes a shitload of money, compared to "regular" jobs. I have no idea what the Faze company culture is, but if it was terrible, he would've left way earlier I guess. I don't think leaving the team has more personal benefits. Also, I have no idea what I'm talking about 😂

He himself knows best when he will finish and let him decide and say it, because as usual there are well-wishers around who want to make decisions for him and spread fake info just to get the word out about them too.
2021-02-13 18:20
karrigan could be a good coach~
2021-02-13 19:50
Just like RpK said: "When you think about retiring, it's usually when you already made up your mind"
