Rather how much longer will the break take? Is there any info, is he training with the team? If he is fit again will he playing again for NIP? Are they willing to sell device? Are they looking for another AWP player etc... etc...? Like, I can understand that some people are annoyed by the daily device threads. But device has a huge fanbase, including me, so its no wounder it pops up again and again and again. And so far NIP hasn't said anything about it except that he's taking a break. Im pretty sure they could say alot if they want to. They said that it takes - if im not mistaken - round about 3 months? It is now over 8 months without seeing an end. Then you can at least provide clarity for the next few weeks / months. And if he ends his career, alright fine, but the fans deserve also to know.

I think they want to stay away from him and leave him be because it's a mental health issue and they don't want to bother him or put pressure on him

They could still say something like ”hes still away from the team, but as soon as hes ready, he will play for NiP again”. Btw, i think this whole situation is handled utterly poor. I mean, hes been playing cs with danish friends for quite some time now. Why not ready to atleast pracc with the team? If hes not Well enough to travel and compete, he could pracc with them atleast. Or come hang out in the NiP hq or whatever. They could basically inform the fans about literally everything except for his mental state and/or the reason to why he got ill.

But even that statement is uncertain, because Hampus said he wants to continue with the current 5 and you never know how good Device will be after such a long break, Nip is probably similarly clueless as everyone else on what they will do in case Device is ever ready again And why would they pracc with him if they can't use him in officials, makes no sense, they need to practice with the 5 players that will actually play.

Ye youre right about the pracc thing, but even If he just teamed up with someone from the team on faceit would be a hint. But it feels like hes doing his own thing with his danish friends on faceit and NiP players do their own thing. Its like a pro footballer like lets say salah would be away from the team, but still contracted. The team says hes mentally ill. He dissappears for months. Then all of a sudden hes seen Playing football with his friends every day in his homecountry for months. Nah man, this situation is f’ed up big time.

thats fine in recovering one needs to do what he loves as a hobby its one of the ingriedients. ofc its better to do that on low key with freedom and friends. that has more healing benefits. no pressure. he could do it sometime with rez or es3tag etc but you will talk automatically you might put pressure on yourself that you want to get back asap. mental health issues cannot be resolved asap. thats the opposite of the approach that someone needs.

Im pretty sure they dont stay away from him and are at least in talks from time to time. These are still his superiors who should know about his health condition. And to give a statement after almost a year would be normal. Imagine GOATs from other sports would be "gone" for so long without having finished their careers and be still in a club. Every club would get asked about the player's condition on a weekly basis. And as far as I understand device has distanced himself from social media. Not a bad idea with the illness itself, but there is no pressure if NiP would say, "yo sorry guys, but device needs more months" on twitter or some shit. In my eyes, this is already a middle finger in the faces of the fans. Fans have bought the jersey, device itself was marketed big, new advertising etc... I am therefore of the firm opinion that they should have spoken up every few months about the condition. EDIT: Sorry, should be an answer to #45, missclicked.

i mean why should this be the concern of the public? cause someone has him in its fantasy team? or someone bought a jersey with his name on it? why should they tell us any internal informations? dont want to be rude, but its hard enough to be a public figure. and with this circumstances... i think the last thing he thinks about is some cs go fans how want to see him perform on their team.

Because after all dev1ce and NIP is stll public figure that have a lot of fans who will cheer for them and buy jerseys / other clothes therefore spend their money on them. It's not professional at all. Even if not fans then they still have a lot of huge sponsors who also laid the money on that team Also most of them just want to know whats going on with him because it's not like he's been gone for a few weeks. It's been literally more than 9 months now and they are still silent and acting like device doesnt even exist
2022-08-08 12:52
they payed for him 1M, he was the face of NIP and now we can't ask where is he ?????
2022-08-08 12:55
It's the concern of the public because he's employed by the entertainment industry. They do no exist without public viewership. It's the same reason why nearly every athlete that gets injured in any sport has a basic prognosis released publicly. The exact details aren't always given (for example "upper body injury") but the team will say he will be out for however many weeks or months. If that changes, the public is updated with a new prognosis. For mental health it is harder to produce an exact prognosis but it is still assessed regularly by doctors, and a general timeframe will have been established and updated as needed. The org will certainly have received these updates. There is nothing "sacred" about mental health itself that precludes basic details of a prognosis being released publicly.

yeah i understand your point. but i guess all that attention on that topic, doesnt make it any easier for any of the two parties. but i agree its a most unfortunite and bad situation. but i still think, personal issues should be the issues of the person itself. thats why its called that way. i dont like all the shit happening in football or other sports, where players have to comment on every fucking thing in their lifes. and it is also not their fault that that teams/organisations pay so hefty fees for them (in sports and in esports). i guess some people can stand the flashing lights and some cant. but i guess all of them just wanna play you know? but again: i do understand all of your points! :)

I 100% agree, the way that some athletes are treated in the media is pretty disgusting. I'm not saying he has to sit in front of a press conference and cry for everyone like in sports, that's just a money-grabbing spectacle at the expense of the athlete and their family. But just a basic press release with an update and timeframe from the team doctor every couple months would go a long way to keeping fans happy.

I guess NiP or the players didn't expect him to retire out of the blue. device was hired to bring trophies he played for 6 months and now is gone. Probably none can't afford his buyout so he's stuck to NiP
2022-08-08 13:40
Who said the players or the org don't want him?
2022-08-08 13:54
I don't think dev1ce wants to go back to NiP when instead of fielding a 5th, they kept recycling academy players. It wasn't until his "situation" that they finally signed Brollan but even then if he comes back its not like NiP will become a title contending team. Except dev1ce, the rest of NiP play completely clueless against Top teams, eg watch any NiP vs Na`Vi game- they have absolutely no idea wtf to do. I guess its because Na`Vi is simply better in firepower and strats but even BIG have an idea how to play Na`Vi its just they lose in firepower.
