Aurimas ‘Bymas’ Pipiras is one of CSGOs most intriguing rookies. At just 16 he was scouted by FaZe Clan to step into the shoes of Counter-Strike legend Olofmeister.

Despite early performances from the Lithuanian prodigy, his stint on the CS Galacticos lasted just under three months after making the switch to Karrigan’s mousesports. The Danish IGL has a reputation for helping young talent flourish on the biggest stage, and this could be the key to unlocking the true potential of Bymas.

The young rifler was plucked from the ranks of FACEIT Pro League by the superstar playmaker Nikola ‘NiKo’ Kovač, who hallmarked the then 16-year-old prodigy for success. He stated, “I believe he has the potential to make it to the top and do some good things.”

But after failing to step into Olofmeister’s shoes during his short stint with FaZe Clan, many argued that his debut with the CS elite was premature. Yet Finn ‘Karrigan’ Andersen recognized the value in this young talent’s flair. Here’s why the Danish Kingpin is key to unlocking Bymas’ potential.
