It wasn’t a joke. Kjaerbye is back!

In hindsight, he probably shouldn’t have made the announcement on April 1st, but the behemoth of an interview he has done with Luis Mira from Dexerto should have been a tell.

So what has Kjaerbye been up to? Well, quite a lot it seems.

But before we go any further, we need to get something off our chest.

How the hell is Kjaerbye only 23?!

Anyway, since leaving North and standing in for a dysfunctional FaZe, Kjaerbye has focused on himself. Running 60-70 kilometers per week and spending hours on end in the paddle tennis center, the Dane says that he has become more focused and calm in his game.

And it’s not just the physical side of it. According to the interview he has finally made peace with himself about his move from Astralis to North.

The announcement, thought up by North as a way to make a big splash, was made so he wasn’t allowed to tell his former teammates. And that led to Kjaerbye beating himself up about burning the bridge to his former teammates.

Now he’s back, however, and the youngest Major MVP ever is ready to prove that he’s got what it takes to compete at the highest level again.

And he’s still just 23, how crazy is that?!
