According to reports from CIS insider Alexey "OverDrive" Buryukov, one of the veterans of CS:GO has also opted for taking an extended leave from his duties. FaZe Clan's Havard "FaZe" Nygaard has been on the scene for a long time and probably decided to distract himself with personal life.
His wife is expecting a baby now, so the father is going to spend the majority of his time with family. Rain has been a part of FaZe Clan since 2016, that's why fans don't suspect the loyalty of the Danish entry fragger.
OverDrive also suggests that rain could be replaced by one of the Russian players, but did not mention who could be the choice of FaZe. FaZe are yet to compete in the upcoming IEM Katowice 2023 and ESL Pro League Season 17 tournaments. Besides, rain himself is yet to announce his departure.
