Ya that was extra stupid, now they are even worst. Kicking Lekr0 was dumb, if you were gonna kick someone then it would probably be Twist, maybe get a more stable AWPer. NiP's problems have been around since forever though, skip to like... 2016 NiP, you have a weak unreliable entry, a IGL that usually cant frag, a lackluster AWPer, a fallen star player, and a F0rest. They do a little shake up, and now they have a very skillful entry player and a top AWPer at the time, should be good, just they win one event. I feel like this little team probably had the biggest potential (not counting the NiP at the end of 2020) if Xizt had a good game you would win the games, and the events. They kick Xizt and bring in Dennis so now they should be able to kick even more ass, and idk what the fuck happened but shit hit the fan real quick, Draken said in an interview that he left because Xizt was kicked, and the team quickly collapsed, they bring in lekr0, which was a good addition, but now they had to force F0rest onto the main AWP. More things happen and they kick Dennis, and bring in Plopski, I honestly feel like this was a huge mistake. Plopski is a great player, but they needed an IGL. Dennis wasn't a real IGL, but he was experienced, now they had nobody. Lekr0 kinda fucks his career and becomes the IGL, and he did great for what he had. Just lets be honest, he wasn't that good (compared to other IGLs) Now they have an AWP problem and a IGL problem, this kinda lack-luster NiP finally kicks GeT_RiGhT after 7 years, and brings in Twist to solve the AWP problem, and I honestly think it made it worst. F0rest isnt a star AWPer, but he hits his shots, he almost always hits the easy shots and has a good chance to hit the hard ones. Twist never hits the hard ones and quite often misses the easy shots. This team though did have the most potential since early 2018, you have 3 stars (Lekr0, REZ, Plopski) a veteran who was arguably better then all of them, and a tier 2 AWPer. F0rest leaves for DIG, which kinda fucked NiP lmao. Nawwk comes in and now they have a long term team, maybe in a few years they'll come to the top. Then they kick Lekr0, and they didnt even bring in a better player, they bring in a washed, inexperienced, lack-luster IGL.
