olofmeister returns to FaZe lineup
Russel "Twistzz" Van Dulken revealed that the team plans to use the Swedish veteran "on a more permanent basis".
Olof "olofmeister" Kajbjer has been reinstated as an active player for FaZe, his teammate Twistzz revealed on Monday in an interview with Dot Esports. The 29-year-old will take part in FaZe's games at the BLAST Premier Spring Final, and is expected to keep his spot on the lineup for the foreseeable future.
"I think it's the best situation we could come up with because we have one of the best lurkers in the game still willing to come off the bench," Twistzz said in the interview, revealing that FaZe is "creating new things, and if it wasn’t permanent we wouldn’t be creating new things" with olofmeister, who they "really believe in".
olofmeister lands on the roster in place of Marcelo "coldzera" David, who departed FaZe at the start of June after a disappointing run of form which saw the international roster reach the lowest point in the rankings in their organization's history.
FaZe will be hoping that the return of olofmeister, praised by Twistzz as "without a doubt, he’s the smartest player I've ever played with", will reinvigorate the team ahead of the summer break and see them climb back into the top 30 of the world.
