FaZe Clan seems to be having a great time with the format that BLAST Pro Series adopts, the star-studded line-up has won two events, Miami and Copenhagen, now leading the points table with a total of 30 points, as they go into the final showdown BLAST Pro Series: Global Final 2019 in December.
But one person who has enjoyed their recent victory a bit more than the rest is Olof "olofmeister" Kajbjer Gustafsson, who currently stands as the player with the most number of CS:GO trophies. The 27-year-old now has a total of 25 trophies under his belt including 2 Major and 23 LAN victories. He shared the number one spot along with Xizt for some time, moving ahead by a margin of one after FaZe won BLAST Pro Series: Copenhagen yesterday.
The bulk of these victories have come in 2014 and 2015, including the two major titles that the Swedish veteran holds, ESL One: Cologne 2015 and ESL One: Katowice 2015. Since then the player has seen a dip in the number of victories and it has been a downward trajectory for him, reaching the milestone yesterday.
Despite it being a great achievement for the player, it doesn’t seem like he would be holding the title for a long time with JW, Flusha, NBK, Friberg, KRIMZ and the whole Astralis core behind him, separated by a difference of just a few trophies. Unless FaZe can stick to their winning ways.
FaZe Clan still needs to win a few tournaments out of the BLAST circuit, till now the only tournament that they have won this year apart from the two mentioned above is ELEAGUE CS:GO Invitational 2019 in January.
It will be interesting to see for how long can Olofmeister retain the title and how hard can others hustle to reach the same.
