Olof "olofmeister" Kajber is a Swedish esport legend and was born on 31.01.1992. His team career was quite significantly marked by two major organizations and Olof was for a long time one of the best players in the world. Given trophies in major tournaments, 25 in number, the Swede is the most successful player in CS:GO history.
In early 2016, Olof suffered a wrist injury and was forced to take a break for about two months because of it. He was unable to really find his way back to his absolute top form. As one of six players in history, the currently 28-year-old (as of Dec. 2020) took part in all CS:GO Major events.
The Swede also became known by his nicknames "boostmeister" and "Tec9meister", which derive from a legendary boost on Overpass as well as his incredible statistics with the Tec-9. At ESL One: Katowice 2015, the Swede recorded more than 24% of a total kills with this pistol.
For the most part, Olof keeps his personal life off of his social channels. However, numerous posts show that the Swede also likes to follow other sports and has, for example, already been a spectator at soccer and basketball events.

olofmeister - Career
Olofmeister started his professional Counter Strike career before 2012 and thus the launch of CS:GO. In 2010-2012, Olof was under contract with RG-Esports and a2g, before he founded the team of the British organization H2k Gaming together with four Swedish players at the end of 2012. However, this project was not crowned with success and was disbanded just 20 days later.
His first longer stay was with LGB eSports, before he moved to Fnatic in mid-2014. Under LGB, the Swede participated in his first major tournament, DreamHack Winter 2013. With a break of about two months, Olof was under contract with fnatic until the end of 2017, before he was signed by FaZe. Due to personal reasons, olofmeister left the active lineup twice for about a month, but always returned to the starting lineup.
The big surprise then was the announcement in mid-2020 that he would retire from the active lineup and from now on only take on the role of stand-in. The experienced rifler made another comeback about five months later when NiKo left FaZe Clan for G2. In early February, the Swede was replaced by Karrigan.
