Since dev1ce doesn't seem to be interested in rejoining, is NiP really considering the current squad? Sure the team is great and performed past the expectations in Major. But if they want to be at the same level as the other powerhouses like FaZe and Na'vi, this team doesn't seem to be making the cut. Bad support. Bad Awper. And from the past few tournaments, i think it is clear enough how big of an impact the two roles make. Brollan is a top 10 Entry fragger Hampus is a top 10 IGL. Rez is can outshine both when he is playing good. The team synergy is awesome. But Plopski and Es3tag are not making the cut. :/ If dev1ce isn't returning, NiP should take actions accordingly.

Don't get me wrong. If he does return, NiP would be a serious contender for everything. But it's been quite long so just considering the possibility of him not returning at all.

I dont think so, device played i think 5 months or 6 in nip and he didnt dind good form, and they didnt achieve anything. Device just need back to the roots, Astralis or other danish team. Danes can build new team around valde, refrezh, device.

On this, I think we need to remember we don't get to 'feel' the team dynamics or the emotions in bootcamp. If device didn't fit then it's probably a good they aren't playing together. Maybe hampus was saying it to keep the rest of the team focused. Device ID a distraction for the team for sure. It's looking incredibly unlikely he'll be returning given he's moved out of Sweden (? I'm pretty sure he has) It would be amazing for cs to have device playing in T1 again and not just playing on face it. Hopefully he'll be back soon. Es3tag seems to fit the team culture and ethos. I worry for him as NiP need an out and put awper to move this roster forward. He is their best support player so I'm sure he won't be dropped if a shuffle is needed.

Which of these examples is the one where the team has changed its language to english and succeeded? Faze? Always been english Ence? Yeah, required to kick all the finnish players out of the team and build international team from ground up. Vitality? Been consistently worse than last year. Big? Being better than last year with kicking foreign players out of the team. Oh wait thats an example against your logic.

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.

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

I mean, there was this thing with Republeague, where NiP should have played but they canceled it because they “need to practice with hampus” (hampus was returning after missing two tournaments). But isn’t it weird? You suddenly need more practice with IGL with who you play for two years. So there’s a chance devve is coming back so that’s the real reason they needed to practice and cancel republeague.

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.
2022-07-02 19:16
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.
