FaZe Clan announced on Sunda
Olofmeister joined FaZe Clan in August and the move immediately created a Counter-Strike: Global Offensive "superteam" with names like Ladislav “GuardiaN” Kovács
Jokes aside, it is true that @olofmeister is stepping down from the team due to personal issues and he will be back in our roster as soon as he feels 100% ready to play again, take care Olle. Until then, welcome @OfficialXizt to our team, exciting months ahead of us #FaZeUp— NiKo (@fazeniko) April 1, 2018
The announcement did cause a stir on Twitter because of its April Fools Day timing, but NiKo confirmed that the announcement is factual.
Since the acquisition of Olofmeister, FaZe has been able to secure wins at ESL One NY, the ELEAGUE CS:GO Premier and the ECS Season 4 Finals. A long list of second and third place finishes follow in those performances. A notable second-place finish came against Cloud9 at the ELEAGUE Major: Boston.
