dev1ce is coming back trust me
device is sleeping and dont care 🥱
I would keep es3tag as support. I think he does a good job with that + hampus said that hes very smart etc etc. And maybe pick up Jackinho, I think he would do better than es3tag. Or phzy again.
They do seem to be doing OK and the team seems to have good energy. I'd keep the team honestly
Rez top 5 Rifle
Brollan top 10 Rifle
Es3tag is an amazing support player easily top 10
Plopski top 30 Rifle
Hampus top 10 igl.
Bingo! All problems are solved. Es3tag is a great support and would allow dev1ce to shine properly
keep esetag on support he thrives there, replace plopski with an awper
Honestly there is no better AWPer rn avaliable to NiP that will speak Swedish, and they will not go international as Brollan literally joined the team just to get away from international squad in fnatic. There is seriously no better AWPer in Sweden rn and you cannot just assume others can speak the languge, Device could only cause he lived in Sweden for 4+ years. If Device doesn't return (the likely case) I think they should keep their current roster, there is no better replacements rn that suit their needs.
fuck it sign degster he want to go int and no swedish awp makes the cut
+Joel +phzy and you have the best swedish team possible
Edit: can go with Wolfy to
device and krimz is the dream that might happen.
olofmeister and nawwk another kewl option.
es3tag is a good support and a even better entry bait, i dont know why they have him playing as awper
last two event they most flash used team . don't matter they are still top team . former nip legends also didn't accomplish or own era . except 87-0 result. maybe time to bench plopski +chawzyy . if device comeback, he kicked anyway
Brollan best rifler in the world no doubt
So clean spraydowns
he is coming back after break
im gonna go for the very biased take and say -REZ cuz hes been given 5 years to develop as the teams "superstar" and he never reached that level, against low tier teams he life games, but against top team like navi/faze he plays so bad. plopski ofc also needs to go but at least hes playing shit roles compared to REZ whos supposed to be the star player of the team. es3tag on the other hand is basically forced to awp cuz dev1ce is most likely not returning so theres nothing es3tag can do rly. hed probably be good if he switched to his main role or at least do his job well
There’s a chance devve will be back for Cologne, you’re making the thread too early
damn the last game of device was 7month ago now...
What I hate the most about this whole device situation is that the NIP management knows exactly 100% what is going on and they are choosing to be silent. Just give us a tweet that he will be back after the player break or something like that.
If device doesnt come back they should go -plopski and get draken as awper. Put chawzyyy or Joel in the academy and promote him later.
Or maybe just stick to the roster and see how it improves.
Yea I agree, current NiP is good but what will elevate them to a position where they actually contest for tournament wins would be an actual great awper. Device coming back would honestly make them a Top 3 team provided he can be in his usual form and I am still high on copium that he is gonna be back in this squad but it seems to be highly unlikely.
In the event of his non return, I don't think making any changes is feasible. There are no great Swedish speaking awpers anymore, none who could take the team to another level so it would be better to just keep rolling with current squad. They can take a gamble on Joel, or maybe bring back Nawwk but I don't think either are gonna improve them that much.
I don’t see why everyone thinks plopski has to go. The way I see it is that he is actually much better than any possible replacement from the Swedish scene. Also, plopski feels very fundamental to the identity of nip as a team. Losing plopski would mean nip has to start from scratch again and in my opinion that would only do more harm than good. Now that they finally have 5 tier 1 players, they would have to be trolling to bring in someone else instead of plopski.
If device returns all is good but of he doesn't -plopski + phzy . Phzy is the best awp in Sweden. But nip can also look in Denmark if they have too? No awp is not a option if nip wanna win tournaments,i hope the management knows this
as far as i know device will play in cologne but dont know instead of who es3tag or plopski
