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 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.
"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."
"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."
