Rumors: rain to take long break while his spot in FaZe might be taken over by Russian

FaZe's Håvard "rain" Nygaard may take a prolonged break due to the birth of a child, as a result of which the team will need a stand-in. This rumor was reported via the Telegram channel of insider Alexey "OverDrive" Birukov, who added that a Russian player might temporarily replace the Norwegian.

The source separately stressed that the information he had shared was not accurate enough.

They say that FaZe's rain will take a long break because he will have a child. They will bring a stand-in. It is very possible that the player is from Russia but it is not at all accurate. It's still up in the air. It is very interesting how it plays out.

For FaZe, the new season in the CS:GO pro scene will begin at the end of January with the yet-to-be-announced BLAST Premier Spring Groups 2022. Subsequently, the European squad will attend two big ESL events: IEM Katowice 2023 (January 31-February 12) and ESL Pro League Season 17 (February 22-March 26).
