Top 1 with Device IF NiP players can actually be consistent. NiP has one of the best young talented lineup in the CS atm, they all are full of potential but highly inconsistent. No joke.

i am pretty sure that right now , he is off the cards already and they are just rolling with him until they find a suitable replacement. Not even mentioned under the mine lineup on NiP`s website. He is definitely the most weakest link even before they have played an official yet.

This only shows how little you understand the game. ZTR is the last person NIP would drop from that lineup. Being only 17, and playing against top tier team, while being also the IGL is such a difficult task which ZTR is doing so well. Tell me a player who used to play as good as him when he was 17?

ztr is playing like shit lmfao what are you talking about, and hes igling on i believe 2 maps but hampus can easily take over the reins if ztr is gone. out of the 5 players on NiP he is easily the most expendable and wont be surprised if he gets cut

I asked you to name a 17 year old who does the calling and entered the tier 1 scene, and has the abilities and skills of ZTR? Even in terms of fraging, you can compare him to any current superstar when they were 17. The new NIP team will be built around ztr and device and that is a certain thing. Threat and Device have the highest praise for him and they expressed this on their interviews.

no 17 year old enters the scene and does the calling because its something that shouldnt be done in the first place and its weird why threat is doing this in the first place. his abilities and skills are subpar to shit anyway so your point is counter-productive.

You have to be baiting "Even in terms of fraging" XDDD He is going to be replaced asap and u are wrong af, he is not by any mean the last person NIP would drop, maybe it would be if he was playing good and nip showing good results They would drop ztr in the blink of an eye instead of dropping rez or plopski Btw at the beggining he wasn't igling and was shit just as he is rn

Are u mad?? kkkkk Ztr is not a fragger, otherwise he would have put some numbers, which he hasn't, his stats are not just bad, but horrible, thats undeniable fact. We don't know if he is a good igl, but its clear that he is not top tier, at least not yer. He is the weakest one along hampus, therefore you are totally wrong saying "ZTR is the last person NIP would drop from that lineup"
2021-05-05 03:03
what universe are you in that you think that wasnt just a PR move lmfao
2021-05-05 00:10
Its quite normal for IGLs nowadays to also have good stats. Ztr hasnt and is expendable. Hampus is a lot better.

But its not normal to have a 17 year old who just entered the tier 1 scene to have such stats. Wait a bit more then judge him. Even star players such jks are having problems to adapt to their new team. So give him some time. What i can assure you is that the new NIP will be built around ztr and device

jks isn't the star player in col. And no we can't list 17 year olds who IGL in tier 1 because it's fucking stupid to let an unexperienced kid take the lead in tier 1. His stats are really bad and he should not have to do anything else than learning and fragging. Look at brollan or sergej if you want to see how talented new kids should be integrated into a good team.

i agree with that. It`s kinda blurry whats going on the NiP camp where they got a 17 year old kid , not even mentioned in their main lineup on their website calling on 2-3 maps on his own. Hampus and Threat would need to step up.

rez, plopski and even hampus are tier 1 players, but none of them is consistent , if device will play on the same level or close to it, they are going top around top 3 . + nip was already around top 10, im not sure about ztr tho, i think they will replace him or he is going to play better, the org now want good results

Realitically NiP can be 3rd best in the world with the current state of teams. They're not gonna be better than Gambit or Heroic, but it seems to me like there's no clear 3rd best team in the world, it's a big flux position right now.

Top 3 - top 5. They definitely have the potential considering the young age of the players. For the top 1 postition they would need one more superstar player

yeah, but the thing with NIP is that a lot of them could *become* superstar players. plopski is the most promising one for sure, dude is only 18 and already a t1 machine

Actually this is an unpopular opinion but i would remove hampus. He somehow gets some kills but he is so clueless when he does an entry. He just pushes without any anticipation on where the opponent might be holding. No flash, no smoke nothing just pushing.

he has good impact though, good enough for an entry at least. but you shouldnt be talking about transfers yet when we literally havent seen them play a single time with device :D

Nips only problem to becoming a top 5 team is inconsistency, experience which device can absolutely tirn updide down for the better if he helps them, and a proper tactical structure. Swedish cs has always been very loose and defaulty. Danish cs is very different

In my opinion, it depends on whether Plopski can get super consistent. The problem with the current NiP lineup is that their star riflers are way too inconsistent. In order to compete against the lineups we have at the top right now you need more than just a top-tier AWPer as seen with NaVi and Vitality at the moment. Hell I mean G2 is looking really good right now with just 2 amazing riflers. Gambit is by far the best team because of their good balance of star riflers and a star AWPer.
2021-05-03 22:27
Definitely Finals potential, if the players next to devve perform well, plopski and rez have to do well.
2021-05-03 23:02
If device actually starts playing to his full potential they definitely can be in top 5, even top 3 maybe. It all depends really how they play with device.

2021-05-03 23:13
Probably will struggle to break the top 5 for atleast a year or 2, too many inconsistent players, no actual experienced IGL, dev1ce still a deciding factor it'll all be upto him, if he flops it'll be because there's no support system and he's not as good as people think, if he does well then he deserves his props and isn't just a role player.
2021-05-03 23:20
Without another roster move, probably the bottom of the top 5. With the right next move, possible major winners if the Dev1ce move comes off.
2021-05-03 23:24
End of 2021 top 3: - Gambit - G2 -NiP
2021-05-03 23:25
I think they will do well. I have my eyes on Plopski I have a very strong feeling his form is going to improve tremendously. The guy is a beast its just that we haven't seen his full potential yet. I think device can help give him confidence and we will see GODSKI! :D
2021-05-03 23:28
