It seems like we can't go a day without a pro player taking a break at the moment. In a post on FaZe's Twitter, olofmeister explained how fatigue and a loss of motivation has caused him to be unable to deliver for the team, making him the third player in 7 days to step down from competition. He stressed that this is only temporary, and that, in true Schwarzenegger fashion, he'll be back.

In the meantime FaZe are without a fifth, which got fans wondering if they'd finally get an in-game leader to tell NiKo what to do. According to a report from DeKay FaZe are however looking at 16 year old Lithuanian prodigy Bymas. The youngster might not be the first player you think about if you try to come up with a replacement for olofmeister, but he's certainly been on FaZe's radar before, or at least NiKo's.

NiKo mentioned Bymas as his "HLTV Top 20 bold prediction" for 2020. So either he's THAT good, or NiKo's trying to make sure his prediction comes true. To be fair, Bymas has been a beast in FPL though, winning the circuit in October and generally displaying a wicked aim. A 16 year old winning FPL really makes us feel like we're past our prime here at TLDR...
