Fifflaren: "allu is a great pickup"

Former Ninjas in Pyjamas member Robin "Fifflaren" Johansson believes that adding Aleksi "allu" Jalli was a good decision from the team.

After retiring from gaming in the aftermath of NiP's group stage exit at ESWC, Robin "Fifflaren" Johansson saw his place on the team be given to Mikail "Maikelele" Bill, one of the hottest prospects in Sweden.

However, Maikelele's time in NiP's starting line-up came to an abrupt end after just three months, with the management citing a lack of top-flight experience as the reason to bench the former LGB talent, who will be replaced by Aleksi "allu" Jalli for the time being.

Fifflaren

Fifflaren believes allu is a great fit for NiP 

In an AMA on Reddit, Fifflaren praised the Finnish star, whom he believes is "the most complete player" out of the three that were under consideration (Marcus "Delpan" Larsson was the third) by the team.

"I think that allu is a great pickup for NiP. I am looking forward to Katowice to see how the team plays, but allu is by far one of the most complete players in the European scene at the moment and I am sure he will do an amazing job in NiP," he wrote.

 Allu is probably the one that would fit NiP the most considering how many tournaments they have coming up. I think another person that would be a good fit would be twist.

"Allu is probably the one that would fit NiP the most considering how many tournaments they have coming up. I think another person that would be a good fit would be twist.

"If I  were the ingame leader, I would have picked Maikelele up, the reason for that is because I like to teach people and see the improvements of a player.

"If I wasn't calling, I would pick allu. I feel that, out of the three, he's the most complete player."

Questioned about which professional player is the best right now, Fifflaren picked Titan's Kenny "kennyS" Schrub because of his ability to carry a team even when it is going through a slump in form.

"KennyS, hands down," Johansson stated. "There is not a single player other than KennyS that has that big of an impact whether their team wins or not."

are you serious? he's averaging 7.2 assists as a small forward! furthermore he's actually a pretty good defender and averages 1.6 steals per game. too be honest, his freethrow and 3pt-percentage went down this season, but 72% and 34% is still pretty okay. tell me one player who's more versatile and effective than lebron.

Bill seems like a dick. I still think he's a much better fit for the team because he can win games but I guess they just don't want a dick on their team. Allu Will do nothing and Nip will exit very quick in the next tourny.

Even if Fifflaren is still part of the NiP organization, he's not involved in the team's decisions anymore, he's just giving his personal opinion, even if of course he's NiP biased. He said himself in the statement that if he was IGL he would have picked-up Maikelele instead of allu, do you read the news before commenting?

Maikelele lacks experience... yet you knew his experience before you signed him, then he played better than all the other 4, then you benched him and trapped him behind his contract, unable to gain *experience*, what a joke, just come out straight and tell us why hes benched, or dont, but stop underestimating peoples intelligence.
2015-03-03 11:11
I'm gonna laugh when NiP fails and they did better with the less experienced Maikelele than allu. Gonna be a great day.

I think Allu is a good choice for NiP, because he is consistent, and NiP do not need a JW or KennyS (or Maikelele) type of awper who goes for the crazy entry frags. They need a consistent awper, who can also pick up a rifle. I dont think NiP wanted a player who would win or lose rounds = if Maikelele died while trying to entry frag, they would lose.. If he got the frag, they might win the rounds. That kind of play doesnt work in the long run. KennyS and JW have made it popular to have a crazy awper in a team, but there is not many awpers who can or SHOULD play like that. you can shut down even those two with more standard plays. I disagree with Fiffy, that it would have been better to try and teach Maikelele and go for the long run.
2015-03-03 13:53
+1. Also JW's crazy entry kills with AWP are famous but he's also great rifler. JW's awp is like B plan of fnatic when things aren't going well..
2015-03-03 14:12
#118

Finland coswell 
Hmm, Fnatics main awper is clearly JW.. And he is good with rifles, but he will always pick up the awp, if he sees one on the ground. Fnatics B-plan is to give olofm the awp, if JW isnt hitting. Thats one aspect, which makes them an amazing team. NiP also have this now, in my opinion, with Allu and Forest. Forest does the reaction shots and Allu plays the consistent awper.
2015-03-03 14:59
same goes for olofm and JW. olofm's is like main awper for ct side but in T, JW's agressive style is useful with AWP. like kennyS. f0rest has always been main rifler and secondary awper.
2015-03-03 16:12

JW is their main awper on both sides :) Theres just couple of maps where olofm clearly likes to awp. Also JW isnt on point in every game and all game.
2015-03-03 17:06
So NIP guys were nice enough to not speak bad about Mikelele (damn, even his nick sounds unappealing to me) and some people consider them jerks for that. To hell with Mikelele, if he got cut, I'm sure there was a good reason for it. I'm sure Allu will perform good, good luck in Poland.

I said allu when fifflaren left. :3 Maikelele looked like a player with potential, and that's what i thought they wanted when i saw that they picked him up. But it seems they just want a solid awper. For that allu is a great pick imo.
