It wasn't too long ago that Richard 'Xizt' Landström joined FaZe's CS:GO team after Olof 'Olofmeister' Kajbjer Gustafsson announced he'd be taking a break from the team, but now FaZe has announced Olofmeister's return on Twitter, meaning Xizt will return to his old team Fnatic after the ECS Season 5 finals next month.

"First of all I want to give big thanks to my teammates, and for FaZe Clan for their understanding of my personal situation, letting me take a break and giving me the time I needed," Olofmeister wrote in a statement. "That means a lot and is something I won't forget. Thank you FaZe Clan. I also want to thank Xizt for stepping in and performing like a beast."

While announcing Xizt's return, Fnatic also revealed that Jonas 'Lekr0' Olofsson would be becoming a substitute, although the organisation will "further explore his options for the future."

"I'm thrilled joining Fnatic! 2018 has been full of ups-and-down for me personally, starting with moving to a substitute role at NiP and then going on to win IEM Sydney with FaZe. Now, it feels good to finally rejoin Fnatic and I'm going to do my best in making us a consistent contender in the future," Xizt said. "Fnatic was the organisation that helped me become a professional esports player back in 2010 and I'm really happy and proud to return to wearing the Black and Orange. I'd also like to thank FaZe Clan for playing there almost two months and making this transfer as smooth as possible!"

Who has the better player here though: Fnatic with Xizt, or FaZe with Olofmeister?
