The two-time Major champion is expected to return to his old team, at least for the upcoming tournament.
Olof “olofmeister” Kajbjer will be FaZe‘s fifth player in the BLAST Premier Fall Series, according to a report by Cybersport.pl. The 28-year-old will link up with his old team again as a replacement for Nikola “NiKo” Kovač, who is edging closer to a move to G2 as reported by HLTV.org on Saturday.
olofmeister has been out of action since May, when he stepped down from FaZe to recover from fatigue. He has been seen practicing with the team on Monday as they prepare for their first match in the BLAST tournament, against BIG on Thursday.
The news all but confirms that NiKo has played his final game for FaZe, whom he joined from mousesports in February 2017. The Bosnian star is expected to take François “AmaNEk” Delaunay‘s spot in G2, who will make their first appearance in the BLAST tournament only next week, against FURIA.
According to the report, FaZe will field the following lineup in the BLAST Premier Fall Series:
