Olofmeister Leaves FaZe Clan, Is Retirement Coming?
We’re sad to report this, but as Olofmeister leaves FaZe Clan, Karrigan returns. The team will be in good hands, but we can’t help but wonder if this is the end of the legendary player. FaZe Clan’s goal was to build an unstoppable team for CSGO that could easily claim titles the world over. Sadly, it didn’t quite go as planned, but it’s a team that nonetheless created memories for fans everywhere. Though some players shifted around through the years, Olofmeister stuck around. That is, until May of 2020. There were rumors floating around that Karrigan would replace Olofmeister, and it sounds like it’s true.
We hope this isn’t the end for the Danish player. There is still a lot he could do for the game, so we’ll just have to stay tuned.
What’s Next for Olofmeister?
Unfortunately, Olofmeister won’t be riding out this 2021 season with FaZe Clan. He’s returning home and has confirmed that he’s done with the team. He made a statement after FaZe Clan qualified during the BLAST Premier Spring Groups. The squad did well, but it was the end for one of the team members:
“Not the ending i wanted but we qualified and that was the most important! Time to take a step back and ill update you guys about my future. Was alot of fun playing and the future is looking really bright for the FaZe team, wish them nothing but the best as always! GGs!”
Though Olofmeister leaves FaZe Clan behind, it sounds like there’s nothing but love between him and the squad. He even sent his best to the incoming Karrigan. There’s nothing negative here, nothing but love for a legend in the game. This comes from FaZe also:
“A legend to the game of Counter Strike and a legend in the story of FaZe Clan. For all you’ve done, we thank you @olofmeister. #FaZeUp”
It’s nice to see a wholesome thread for something like this. There was plenty of banter and well wishes between the former teammates as Olofmeister leaves FaZe and looks to horizons new. Could this really be his retirement? We don’t think so, but that’s speculation. There is, as we said, a lot still he can give. Perhaps he’ll be an out-of-game coach or leader for a team that’s in need of some wisdom.
Boy does he ever have it! While that was Olofmeister’s last tournament for FaZe, there’s no telling where he’ll turn up. He’s got a load of knowledge and skill. Perhaps this is it though. We’ll keep our eyes glued to rumors and things that come up. We’d hate to see this be the end. But if it is, what a legend he leaves behind!
