The report follows an Aug. 8 report that Fnatic would look to replace olofmeister and Dennis “dennis” Edman, reportedly with Fnatic Academy’s Maikil “Golden” Selim, and Jonas “Lekr0” Olofsson from Godsent as the top targets.
FaZe Clan is widely considered one of the best Counter-Strike teams in the world but lost all its matches at last month’s PGL Krakow Major. The team has since added Ladislav “GuardiaN” Kovács to replace Aleksi “allu” Jalli.
KioShiMa has been part of FaZe Clan since April 2016 and has a career reaching back to Counter-Strike 1.6 with his first professional performance at the age of 17.
Olofmeister was part of the legendary Fnatic CS:GO roster that could never quite regain its form this year. The team shuffled last August, with Freddy “KRiMZ” Johansson, Jesper “JW” Wecksell and Robin “flusha” Ronnquist moving to Godsent. The lineup reformed in January but never won another tournament.
