FaZe Clan's CS:GO player NiKo has just announced on Twitter that his teammate Olofmeister will be stepping down from their team temporarily, while ex-Ninjas in Pyjamas player Xizt comes in as a replacement.

"Jokes aside, it is true that @olofmeister is stepping down from the team due to personal issues and he will be back in our roster as soon as he feels 100% ready to play again, take care Olle. Until then, welcome @OfficialXizt to our team, exciting months ahead of us ???? #FaZeUp," NiKo writes.

Some people joked that the original announcement was an April Fool's day prank, but NiKo confirmed that this wasn't the case. Do you think Xizt is a good replacement?
