There have been plenty of moves in the professional CS:GO scene in the last few days. Here are the details of two big moves.
Olofmeister has decided to take a break from competitive CS:GO after feeling an increase in fatigue. This is the second time Olofmeister has decided to step away from his team after also taking a break in 2018. He stayed away from CS:GO for a period of three months during that period. In his statement, Olofmeister explained he was losing the motivation to do himself, his team-mates and the Faze brand justice.
The Faze roster is temporarily down to four players. However, there are reports suggesting Faze are looking to sign Aurimas “Bymas” Pipiras on a trial contract. Bymas is 16 years old but has been a prodigious talent ever since breaking into the CS:GO scene two years ago. He even impressed Faze’s Niko. “I watched him a couple of times and I think he’s pretty good and a pretty versatile player,” he told HLTV. “I believe he’s going to be a big thing. I believe he has the potential to make it to the top and do some good things.”
Godsent have signed AWPer Asger “Farlig” Jensen from Copenhagen Flames. Farlig will replace Mikail “Maikelele” Bill, who expressed his disappointment at his exclusion.
“I learned about this 00.00 CEST Thursday and apparently it took 3 hours for everything to happen until they told me I was benched and that they have found a replacement,” Maikelele said. “3 hours to take away a team that I created and worked extremely hard for since November 2018. Yes it is true that I have been lacking in individual skill lately but there are reasons why (sic). What I’m most disappointed at is that I’ve backed up players so much, looking away from their flaws to find what’s positive instead of the negative things. But I didn’t get the same in return.”
Farlig comes into this Godsent team on the back of some sterling form for his former team, particularly with the AWP. His move has resulted in Copenhagen Flames still looking for a fifth player to complete their roster. Farlig is the third player to move away from Copenhagen Flames in the matter of three months after the departure of Asger “AcilioN” Larsen to MAD Lions and René “TeSeS” Madsen to Heroic.
