Negotiations not always go in the way both sides agree. Alexey "OverDrive" Biryukov neglected previous rumors of FaZe being in successful talks with a Russian CS:GO player, who was supposed to join as a stand-in, while Havard "rain" Nygaard is having an extended leave for personal reasons.

Folks, there is a cancellation regarding FaZe and the Russian player. Turns out everything is messed up there and upside down. You'll go crazy about the consequences already in the next week. For now, the deal is cancelled.

Rain was a part of FaZe CS:GO since 2016. His extended leave is because he will soon become a father and needs to dedicate more time to his family.
