Rain reveals that he was about to leave the FaZe Clan in 2020 to start something in Norway

One of the longest-serving FaZe Clan CS: GO members, Håvard “rain” Nygaard, have been part of their active lineup for almost six years now. The Norwegian rifle joined the organization in January 2016 and has been with it ever since.

Rain is considered to be one of the most effective entry-fraggers in the game, whose name has become synonymous with the North American organization over the years. So when the 27-year-old revealed that he had thought about leaving the team last year in 2020 to establish something of his own in Norway, during an interview with Fragbite, it was something of a revelation to the CS: GO community!

Rain reveals he was about to leave the FaZe Clan last year

The oldest acting member of the FaZe Clan in its current active CS: GO list, rain, recently revealed that he was considering leaving the organization last year.

He did not want to continue with FaZe after Nikola “None” Kovač’s departure to G2 Esports. But the rain changed his mind when he found out there were plans to pick up Finn “karrigan” Andersen as the new IGL (in-game leader) of the team.

If Karrigan had not been on his way to FaZe, the entry-level sniper would have decided to return to Norway and set up his own Norwegian CS: GO team. Rain was very serious about this as he goes on to say that he had already started talks with a couple of Norwegians where he was discussing his plans.

Although the FaZe Clan have not done incredibly well this year, their race at Stockholm Major was quite impressive. It remains to be seen whether the rain will continue or not, as he mentioned that staying with FaZe could have been the right choice at the time “but eventually I will go back to Norway and try to promote the scene there while also nurturing some young players”.

Currently, there are no significant reports that the team is undergoing changes, other than the one about Robin “ropz” Kool joins FaZe.
