GeT_RiGhT to lead NiP ingame

Christopher "GeT_RiGhT" Alesund has revealed that he has taken over as Ninjas in Pyjamas' ingame leader.

The decision was made right after the Swedish team's early exit at Gfinity Spring Masters 2, where a 1-2-1 record ranked them fourth in the group.

NiP will be hoping that the move will breathe new life into the roster, just one month after Joona "⁠natu⁠" Leppänen, a former professional player, was hired to coach the team.


GeT_RiGhT replaces Xizt as NiP's IGL 

This is not the first that that Christopher "⁠GeT_RiGhT⁠" Alesund leads the team inside the game, but the player admits that he still finds it hard to call the shots.

"We had a long discussion at Gfinity, where we went through a lot of stuff," Alesund wrote on Facebook.

"We came th the conclusion that I was going to try out to be the caller... In the last few days, that is what I have done.

"It has been sort of a roller coaster for myself as I have to think about what everyone wants to do ingame and such. It has been kind of tough, if you ask me.

"But I have great team-mates that support me to the fullest. I do not feel weird with this new role anymore.

"Sure, we may go back to Richard being the main caller, or someone else, but, for the time being, I will continue in this role. I hope I will get the best support from our fans."

NiP's first offline event with GeT_RiGhT as ingame leader will be DreamHack Summer, which will take place from on June 14-15.

The Swedish team are currently second in CEVO Professional, on a perfect 5-0 record, while in the ESL ESEA Pro League they lie in fourth place, with six victories from 11 matches.

VP is tier 2(VP is tier 1 sometimes, a.k.a Virtus Plow). NiP tier 1. Thats why.
2015-05-26 20:11
it seem's strange but makes sense if you think about it. gtr is the lurker so he won't be the first into sites; therefore he can be the guy seeing each round play out and shouldn't be in too dangerous a situation most of the time where he has to focus on himself and his teammates. he's basically going to be the old happy of nip. if you ask me though i think all this IGL swapping lately is stupid and unnecassary. flusha the igl of fnatic, shox the igl of envy, now gtr igl of nip? why?
2015-05-26 20:12
2 replies
Flusha is not even IGL of fnatic anymore, besides... Happy did IGL calling as a lurker himself as well, and how well they performed... (Yeah, waaay above NiP)
2015-05-26 20:33
1 reply
that was part of my point. since envy changed to shox igl they are terrible (also cos of their time on other games), happy is a better igl and shox needs to play his own game as a great all-rounder.

HLTV should reconsider their news because it's looking very much like they care about every little thing NiP does (Maikelele debut news in NiP for example). Has HLTV done a news when flusha took over pronax the leading? No.

This is not a good sign for NiP. Switching your in game leader usually means that they have run out of options to try to improve their performance. If GeT_RiGhT fails to lead NiP to where they want I can see changes incoming.

I didn't mean the awper, I meant that a top fragger -clutcher to be the in-game leader is the really bad idea. And it took me more than 5 months to transform from the fragger to the caller in 2009-2010, effectively. Just look how NiP vs TSM now :|. It will take much much more time. Why did they choose the hard way of improving ?

2015-05-26 21:16
The only way for NiP to be good again is to switch 2 players with young talents with a great drive to win. It's always the same deal with these old teams they lose motivation and can't be top 1 anymore. They just keep being top 5 because they are incredibly skilled but without great motivation no team can be top 1.

Being IGL in a lurking role is not really that great from a tactical perspective. I wonder what they are trying to achieve by changing Xizt with GTR. Really seems like they are just clutching at straws and hoping for a quick win by changing things...I don't really think that it will have much of an impact on their performance as a team or the way they play. NiP lack tactical innovation and initiative but have always been a fundamentally sound team with players highly capable of turning a game on its side. Their poor performances stem from relying on winning rounds and situations based upon individual performances rather than good tactics and team work. They need to take a different perspective on the game, the overall level of all pro players has raised so much in the last two years and the distance between the greats and the best has shortened drastically.
