Olof Kajbjer Gustafsson Professional CS:GO player, two-time Major tournament champion. His CS:GO professional journey began at LGB eSports in 2012. In that group, Olofmeister established himself, and in 2014, both he and Krimz were noticed by the Fnatic management. Swedish was already shown his incredible versatility as a player. Olaf and Fnatic quickly became popular and advanced to the 2014 ESL One Cologne finals, in which they were defeated. Fnatic phase began with the Majors in Cologne.

Following falling in the final, players came back even better and claimed the StarSeries X, ESWC 2014, as well as numerous other smaller competitions. Olof conducted the infamous defuse at that moment, immortalized in painting on the Overpass and eternally etched in the annals of CS:GO.

 

Gamer demonstrated what a talent he was developing during the following event, and his stunning kills pleased every single spectator. However, he received the greatest criticism for his “abuse” of the Overpass from the cybersports community at the same competition. 

 

The roster entered the upcoming tournament as winners. Up till the final match, Fnatic didn't drop a single map, and Olof was named the competition's MVP. Under such stress, he might have easily given up, but he pushed his abilities and now was quicker, more precise, and smarter, earning him the title of real leader of the team. Olof earned the illustrious title “tec9meister” following the Katowice tournament, given this nickname for his amazing Tec-9 shooting. Ololfmeister rose to the top spot as a player in 2015.

The first downfall and a second chance

2016 MLG Major Championship in Columbus. Moreover, it is evident that there was a problem. Astralis ultimately eliminated Ololfmeister because they were competing with a wrist injury.  They were rated 5-8, and the athlete took time off from playing to recover from their injuries. This choice appeared quite obvious because his ailment prevented him from training effectively.

 

The squad switching did not help even when the athlete returned to the ESL One: Cologne 2016 competition. Failure follows failure. The PGL Major Kraków 2017 competition served as the breaking point. Gambit triumphed against Fnatic. Following that, news indicating Olof no longer a squad member surfaced on the organization's website. Kajbjer remembered that he required a new opportunity and inspiration. In the guise of FaZe Clan, he received it.

 

Olof was no anymore one of these celebrities in particular; even so, Niko and rain were the major spotlights at the time. He still took his new position as usual. The new squad swiftly moved up, winning ESL One: New York 2017 in one go. NA Major: 2018 Boston They destroyed everyone using Cloud9 because they were impossible to beat.

 

The championship match was fascinating, but due to unluck, the Americans gained the advantage and denied Olaf the chance to become the inaugural individual to achieve the majors while playing for two separate teams.

 

A frustrating pause

Olaf stopped being involved for "personal reasons" several months later. Meister later made a comeback and even took home a few respectable trophies, but they moved from being a solid force to a group with clear issues. But it seems like things have changed this time. On Twitter, NiKo and rain bid him a heartfelt farewell and sent him many “well wishes”. 

 

 

All indications point to him ceasing to contribute to the team or even leaving the online scene entirely. It seems obvious that his performance is fantastic and unquestionably brilliant, even if he decides not to go on. The Swedish player will take another jump since he hasn't finished speaking in CS:GO.
