NiP release natu

MIRAA
August 28th, 2015 16:58

Ninjas in Pyjamas have announced that they have parted ways with their CS:GO coach Joona "natu" Leppänen with immediate effect.

The 30-year-old had been hired by NiP to coach their CS:GO team in April, filling the position left vacant by Faruk "pita" Pita, who had worked as a strategy adviser to the team.

Despite his long experience, Joona "natu" Leppänen was unable to take the team's game to the next level, with a 5th-8th place finish at ESL One Cologne being the latest of a series of unimpressive results from the 2014 Cologne major winners.


natu leaves NiP 

natu, who will continue involved in the Counter-Strike scene as a caster, is for now the only change to come around in NiP's team, whose players are contracted to the organisation until December 31.

While NiP do not rule out the possibility of further changes taking place, a statement issued by the organisation explains that they are "unlikely before the end of the year."

"All five of them have contracts that end on the same date, the 31st of December 2015, and are to be renegotiated starting 1st of October," NiP state.

"There is nothing that would hinder us starting these renegotiations earlier but the contracts are valid until said date.

"We and our co-owners Diglife see player contracts as the foundation on which we build much of the investments and the future so therefore it's important they only change if ALL parties are in agreement."

It remains unclear whether NiP will name a new coach anytime soon. The team's next event is the ESEA Pro League Invitational, scheduled for September 10-12, in Dubai.

RobbaN incoming
2015-08-28 18:58
This might actually not be far from the truth and provided that RobbaN find back his old form i believe he can take NiP back to greatness again and here is why: RobbaN is no ScreaM, OlofMeister or mad insane fragger that almost everyone seems to think NiP is lacking. He is more like Pronax, a really good motivator and a experienced IGL. He also has that natural ingame sense that makes him a value in both retakes, clutch situations and reading of the game. The last part is however what he is gonna bring to the table. New taccs, motivation and experience. If they hire a Manager/researcher aswell with good ideas they will have that one sorted out. So, who needs to go? You cant swap the entry fragger with a new IGL, unless either Forest, XizT or Get Right steps into that role. But we all know the strenghts of these players are on other aspect of the games, and not entry fragging. Xizt has also proven himself a really good clutch/rifle player when he's not calling the shots. So what about forest and Get Right. Should they stay or should they go? The most important question is how motivated is Forest and Get Right to continue working even harder to reach top 1 again? Do they still have the fighting spirit, which is neccessary in order to lay down all those hours again, changing basicly every strats and practise even harder? Do they believe in the current players enough that it would be enough to change xizt/friberg for Robban in order to get a new IGL? Or does NiP need a huge overhaul that basicly makes Forest and Get Right the only two players left or even change out all the players and build a new team from the scratch, with new talents and hungry players. I dont know the players and i dont know how motivated they are. The one thing i know is something has to be done, more than removing Natu from his role. My personal advice will be to Keep Get Right and Forest and remove the rest. Just to freshen up the squad and bring in new talent, motivation and experience. +Robban Forest Get_Right + Awp'r + Entry/Support +Creative Manager -Xizt -Friberg -Allu PS: Im sure Xizt without a IGL role is still good enough to stay on the team, and maybe even Allu too. Atleast if he starts getting those easy picks he too often misses, and not just the crazy ones. This is just purely based on freshen up the squad to motivated those who are left, the core of NiP.

whats ur problem? he is a friend of mine im just fucking with him
2015-08-29 21:33
Quitting and coming back never helped anyone. It's always worse when you come back, and you'll feel like that, every time you miss an easy kill - "If I hadn't quit, then I'd.."
2015-08-28 20:45
I get your point, and i agree that making a comeback might be a risk. But the thing with RobbaN is that he is not some regulare 1.6 pro that only relies on his skill, but his In game Leadership. That is the core here. He is still today one of the best IGL's ever and that doesnt change with age, his aim does. So, if he gets 4 people that is skilled enough to act out his ideas and tactics, and still being able to do a decent job. His tactics will speak for him, and he might be intelligent enough to create some next level plays that puts Fnatic and Tsm below NiP.
2015-08-28 20:51
The qualities that you list, could also make him a perfect candidate to coach NiP. Bringing him back as a player, is a much bigger risk imo. Not to mention the time it takes before Robban, maybe, returns to full force.
2015-08-28 21:58
I agree in everything u said young man.

delpan is not good enough , he really isn't
2015-08-29 11:14
why would they get rid of allu, hes the best awper they can get right now
2015-08-29 01:13
The reason behind removing Allu has more to do with bringing on 3 new players in order to freshen up the team than his skill per se. Motivation is so important at that level.

(hijacking your commentary for better visibility) Sadly, NiP struggle is part of a natural process of stagnation. They've reached the top by doing what they do so even though I strongly believe they want to change things around and tip the scales in their favor aiming better results and placings the ingame outcome is otherwise frustrating since they don't do anything different. NiP chemistry rely on players doing their roles and for times when we have teams like fnatic TSM and EnVy who are all heavily skill based you can't assume that friberg will have higher success rate entry fragging or that GeT_RiGht will clutch the round every time. NiP situation is pretty similar to when VP and Na'Vi first transitioned to CSGO. They tried to stick with their winning rosters but if they were to win tournaments they had to leave people behind so they did and are nowadays better than NiP. NiP roster was very similar giving the fact that only GTR and f0rest were playing together and the rest all come from different teams and games. Unless NiP part ways with players before expecting them to retire like Fifflaren did NiP will keep struggling. My ideal roster move? -Friberg and Xizt +schneider and dennis
2015-08-28 17:31
dennis is good but I wonder if he can become a good igl :\ schneider is not better than friberg.

it's easy to develop if you play with the best. what was the best team schneider joined since he left fnatic?
2015-08-28 18:23

but xizt did more dmg while gtr was IGLing, while GTR usually bottomfragging last games, while xizt back to IGL role
2015-08-28 18:30
that happened on one map maybe. but looking last matches in general he isn't doing great job as igl... i hate to say it, but if something needs to be change, i believe its xizt. Maybe changing roles might help. we will see

Dude you seriously need to learn more about the roles in CS:GO... '-friberg & xzist +schneider and dennis ' ? Friberg is an entry fragger on t side and pretty much a support player on ct side whereas schneider is a pure rifler who has a great carry capacity and he's also a very capable awper. This sounds a lot like get right and forest. Why would they add a 3rd rifler? And I suppose you know the fact that Xzist is their IGL... who's gonna do that if he's gone? Dennis can't do that and he's pretty much the same type of player that schneider, get right and forest are. So you would basically have a team with 4 riflers and one AWPer with no support or IGL. RIP logic.

dennis would naturally become a IGL. the thing is, NiP is on this situation because they don't leave their comfort zone though it's clear that they want. they need to change if they want to be competitively meaningful again. if kinguin can achieve good results without a dedicated IGL like fnatic what prevents NiP of attemtping to change? don't forget about envy, whose strats rely more on mid round calls than elaborate tactics like Na'Vi.
2015-08-28 18:26

Romania Zadro 
And how did you find out which one is their comfort zone? Are you offering counselling to the team or what? Dennis can't be an IGL. He can't 'naturally become an IGL' only because he replaces Xizt or because you want him to. And as I said. He would be another rifler. They need a better entry fragger or a better support. Kinguin do have an IGL (Legija). He's making their tactics as well as the mid-round calls. And NiP do not have the skill capacity that Envy do. They need good strats. NiP were good up until Katowice because of the heavy ct-sided meta. The meta we have right now is extremely favorable for the t's. You have dust and cobble on which the t's are absolutely dominating and a bunch of other maps in which 9-6 or 8-7 are good halftime scores for each side. That's why teams with higher skill potential like TSM, NV and Fnatic are shining. NiP need to try some new strats. If this won't work only then should they think of a roster change.
2015-08-29 15:43
friberg is a bad entry fragger on t side and usually an side anchor on ct and definitely no support player. hes usually tha last one rotating und therefore hes at least a decent clutch player but no top 20 player atm imo and the first one nip should get rid off.
2015-08-28 18:31
Man, its just your pov .. natural process of stagnation? Wtf? If you are good, and we can talk in general, you always have to find a way to success. They found it first of all teams as all we know, long time unbeatable, but they stucked. All they need is find a new way of playing, doing things in game, surprise their enemy in different and new way and with these things can help some person, who is not playing in the team, because he see the problems more clearly and can find them. Nothing as natural process of stagnation is exists, its just excuse for weak people/players/teams.

my point is that everything is cyclical unless you work hard to get back to your better shape again. after having a winning streak, if you are good and there is competition, you will lose some day. bouncing back is a matter of identifying what went wrong asap and change your approach. you can't expect to change outcomes doing the same shit over and over again. that's exactly what nip is (afraid of) doing.

i would say -friberg +dennis/twist xizt isnt that bad :/
2015-08-28 18:52
I think majority of teams in esports scene do lots of dumb stuff. How long was he with the team? Few months? He really had no chance to adapt properly with the team, and he's already taken out. This not about the nip only. Most of teams do that. Logic in e-sports - not found.

he can watch anime in sweden and coach them with the time left.
2015-08-28 17:06
Why would he throw away his studies to make a bit of money coaching? Studying provides a better long-term payoff than CS does.
2015-08-28 17:07
dude i was just joking, seriously you should never put a game over your education, maaaybe if you can play for nip fnatic or other big orgs but even then, your cs time will be over at some point and you could be fucked.
2015-08-28 17:09
You can still study afterwards, it's not like your life is doomed or something. There are loads of people that can still study/go courses at an older age, just look at any uni. But of course, it's a better choice to finish your studies instead.
2015-08-28 17:12
yup no problem to go study if your older, but still, living the "dream" being a pro travelling the world playing games getting money, and then you come back to study and shit, thats gonna fuck you up m8 :D
2015-08-28 17:14
That's a good point, might get used to it too much. Just winning one major could be totally worth it though I think. That would be a memory of a lifetime. :)
2015-08-28 17:18
yeah thats true, i dont know how i would choose if i came to the situation of quitting your job for games etc. i earn good money atm so i probably would decline and go on with my life, but a major win would be great too :D
2015-08-28 17:22
dude, study and CS don fit together.
2015-08-28 17:24

what nips problem is xizt / friberg lol xizt outdated strats friberg not finding any entries. Also he is their anchor but he goes down so easily and fast without getting any frags Allu, f0rest, and xizt has more entries than friberg individually

They gamestyle/tactics havent changed at all since he joined... Those were good times for him, getting paid for doing nothing. Still, best of luck in the future
2015-08-28 17:15
xizt is captain of NIP, so he decides - change his playstyle or not, coach's work is only watching demos and vods, thats all
2015-08-28 18:37
...
2015-08-28 18:48
He was no where close to vuggo in fnatic. Vuggo does everything for fnatic. He watches their demos and the enemy's demos. Decides on the map veto and helps pronax with the calls and the timeouts. He is always hyped and this is also important. Natu didnt do these things tbh.

+1 You can tell that all natu did was change Xizt and Friberg at some bombsites, even then, they still played the same positions... Natu literally did absolutely nothing for NiP. He was merely there picking up a pay packet lol.

tbh Natu did nothing to change NiP anyway. If he was smart, he would've done something new. At least he could've tried it and we could've said his time at NiP was worth it.

He repeatedly was on point regarding what's wrong with NiP in interviews etc. They probably haven't listened to him at all and he wasn't charismatic enough to convince them.

Expected. The team has not shown any kind of improvement or development during his service. Might be a sign that they don't make roster changes, because when you don't want to kick ur players u kick ur coach when it's going bad. * I hope Fiffy comes in as coach :) *

I agree, only GTR and to an extent allu are the real consistent performers on the team.
2015-08-28 17:16
loool u stupid , allu just had a good game against VP. allu misses every single shot against CLG , and sucks balls against TSM , and did stuff like this about 3 months for NiP , he just had a few good games. F0rest and GTR are the best players in NiP , after them Xizt , but Allu and Friberg ... ahhh ...

I think natu would be better as a coach for some team such as Kinguin. He has the most experience and probably is good at calming people down. As for NiP, they need a real tactical mastermind to feed Xizt new strats and info, since their current ones are just not cutting it. Gl natu for future endeavors.

Still more relevant considering he actually played CS:GO on a professional level compared to Robban. Thinking you'd be a good CS:GO coach just because you were good in 1.6 is delusional.

Dude because someone played better doesn't mean he will be a better coach, the required skill set is completely different, if allu retires now and becomes nip coach he is more relevant than natu right? and thinking i posted seriously before is just silly, from what i've seen picking up retired pros for coaching positions is pointless in 95% of time, they might do some work and help, but its barely related to real coaching comparable to football or hockey.

"Leppänen, who will continue involved in the Counter-Strike scene as a caster, is for now the only change to come around in NiP's team, whose players are contracted to the organisation until December 31." So Lurppis' tweet about NiP's contracts running out this week was complete bullshit. Go figure.

Doesn't matter if the correct info leaked now, it's still the wrong and old info.

"Despite his long experience, Joona "natu" Leppänen was unable to take the team's game to the next level, with a 5th-8th place finish at ESL One Cologne being the latest of a series of unimpressive results from the 2014 Cologne major winners".

2015-08-28 17:54
what was he doing there in the first place? NiP takes such strange decisions must say.
2015-08-28 17:56
Well... they did not bring anything innovative to their playstyle in Cologne so I guess he deserved it. Releasing maikelele was the worst decision they made.
2015-08-28 17:57
taking him over dennis/twist was the worst of the worst decision they made.
2015-08-28 19:40
Not really, they wanted a good AWP player. As far as I remember they looked strong as hell with him and I was kind of shocked when they decided to release him. I mean teams without good sniper do not have a chance. Thats why dennis wouldn't be a good fit, he's more olof/GTR kind of a player. I don't really know much about twist, didn't watch him play.
2015-08-28 19:52
Well, good awp player Twist > maikelele for sure, but hear arround he have some bad behavior too... olof and gtr have two different style, so he is more like olof than gtr.

2015-08-29 15:43
time to start taking some risks NIP
2015-08-28 17:58
It's amazing the difference of opinion everyone has on what player(s) should be cut. It's not consistent at all. Finding a new coach who can reestablish the team's focus and start putting together different gameplans may help determine who is also lagging behind on the team if anyone.
2015-08-28 18:01
the players have managed 2 see stuff like that in all times - the question is - why would teams need a coach for that today? seems pointless. it's almost the same thing when people said that Fifflaren was a "supportplayer" and it doesn't matter if he takes his frags or not. cuz that's not his role xD bad comparision tbfh. just feels that ppl complicate stuff way 2much these days
2015-08-28 18:13
When will understand that the problem is not the coach or the awp-allu / maikelele, but the other 4 players who can no longer earn playing together!
2015-08-28 18:01
preach brother. fuck coaches, overrated crap. in this case at least.
2015-08-28 18:14
I think they should pick either steel or DaZeD, since they know so much about the game and how to play it, and they cant play professionaly so... Still I think NiP need some roster changes, it isnt working.... I would like to see something like this: Get_Right f0rest Polly friberg pyth pyth is playing for Mythic, but that line up is pretty shit, since pyth joined and they benched fl0m... I dont know, is there any swede that plays better than pyth and is free-agent atm?
2015-08-28 18:01
I don't think any european team would ever pick 2 u mentioned. Maybe they are best in NA, but they are not even top 10 europe. Threat in my opinion would be absolute best for nip. Changing friberg would be good as well, dennis maybe

They should get Fifflaren back to their team. Retards kicked him out because he had a few bad matches.
2015-08-28 18:11
true. it was not the tactics that was wrong, but fifflarens skill in-game. that said, why was he not coach from the beginning? after he went kicked, he must have declined or something.

Yeah, probably.

So they came to the conclusion that they're shit because of Natu, not because of the fact that Xzist has been using the same strats for over a year... Fifflaren himself said that they haven't changed a thing ever since he left. So it was Natu's fault? Natu is probably the best strategic adviser you can have in your team and you're kicking him out just because you can't accept the fact that you need a roster change or at least a strat change?
2015-08-28 18:21
natu has VAC Ban in 1.6 , obv he cant help them ! Natu was good in cs, now he is cancer.

I feel Allu should go as well. I still don't think he is the right fit. He's the awper nip needs but i dont think he's the awper that nip deserves for their playstyle. I'd think he'd fit better in kinguin considering he excels best when he can freely awp anywhere instead of being put at one/few positions and also kinguin mainly revolves around star players who are best their own niches

2015-08-28 22:17
NiP organization is retarded. They are failing about 1,5 year and still not changing anything. The core of 4 players is weak and something needs to be changed. It's not a coach thing, since all of the players in NiP are pretty experienced and their game knowledge is very high. They lack something else, like chemistry etc. They are together for so long, and they need some fresh blood in their team, some new things to happen, to give them some moral boost and motivation. They're letargic right now and they'll always be if they don't cut friberg or Xizt, or both of them.

allu and friberg is the problem kick friberg and allu and nip will improve
2015-08-28 23:27
Please do elaborate. How would kicking their best performing player solve any problems? I'm genuinely curious!
2015-08-29 01:36
Basic flawed NiP fanboy logic, kick allu = NiP top1 again. There are obviously some reasonable arguments to be made for kicking allu but it's not as black and white as these fucktards make it seem :D
2015-08-29 03:14

2015-08-29 13:59
Always the coach, never the players.
2015-08-28 23:28
Honestly, coaching is so damn unnecessary - All major dominating teams in the past did not need a coach Examples: fnatic 2009 Na'vi 2010 SK mid 2011-2012 Nip 2012-2013 I feel like NiP are not blaming Natu or anything (everyone knows natu would make a good igl/coach), they probably just tried out the coaching thing and it probably didnt work to change anything drastically in their game. Maybe they need to figure out what to switch up themselves...maybe its confidence.. if you have a mental block you just wont do well no matter how skilled you are..if they can get that outta the way then there is no need for any line up change .. all players are top tier on Nip

thats because back then most teams didnt have a coach. now that most teams have a coach success without one is harder.

I was hoping to see this. At least they're starting to do SOMETHING. I'd like to see NIP acquiring a coach who can act as an IGL for them - I just can't see them finding a good enough IGL any other way. There are no players like that on the market AFAIK. That brings us to Friberg. I still believe he should be replaced, but again I have no idea who could replace him. What I'm hoping for is a CS:GO scene with like 7-9 absolute top teams that can all beat eachother. It would really make the big tournaments even more interesting and exciting, and it would likely increase the entertainment value and create more exposure thus making the game bigger. That's why I'd like to see a strong NIP come back, and it's also why I want to see teams like C9, LG and Kinguin do well. And let's be honest here, I believe that CS:GO still needs a strong NIP to grow even more, just like it needs a strong fnatic/Envy/VP etc. Also; I certainly don't mean to say that natu has nothing to give to CS:GO, it was just obvious IMO that it wasn't working out at all with NIP. I think he's been doing a fantastic job as a caster/analyst, and I hope we'll see more of him doing that. He still knows a lot about the game, and all that experience is certainly valuable.

2015-08-29 03:19
I think it would be worth giving threat a shot at this point. Back when he played 1.6, he was known for being a good strategic igl which is what nip has been lacking for a long time. He has also shown that he can provide something to a team in cs go as well when he played with team acer, a low tier swedish team that gave fnatic a challenge.

No one can fix NiP except HeatoN, he needs to change something and he knows it. You can't keep allu and playing in a different language to make him play more comfortably that is retarded because allu is not even a top 3 awper in the world. If you do it for Guardian or someone with a higher skill level i would understand. Or for someone in another role but that would be worth changing your calling language for: KennyS(on his old form), shox (most versatile player ever), olofmeister (he already is swedish). These are the only people i would consider to change something that is as important as calling language for. You need an ingame leader that is better than xizt, either move xizt to an support role or remove him from the team and move in an IGL. Karrigan is a good example, you could have never imagined TSM without fetish but look at what karrigan brought in to the team they became better. If it were up to me -allu +dennis. BTW: allu is not a bad player at all, but he is not the kind of player that i would switch my language for.
2015-08-29 04:41
Thing is though, the language barrier isn't the problem, it's the fact that they are just not playing in form as individuals. You can easily tell that the proper communication isn't the issue from their games, it's the actual executions on strats/purely getting out-aimed/played by the other teams since they are incredibly easily read. But you problably didn't watch their recent games so not sure why I'm even bothering commentating
2015-08-29 05:08
Either -Xizt +Delpan as IGL -Friberg +Schnider as Rifler and either keep Allu or find some random AWPer, if not then use twist as a third rifler, move GR back to a lurk position. NiP will be top 4 again
2015-08-29 05:30
Friberg switch to m4a1-s. NiP new top 1.
2015-08-29 05:43
Here's the thing, I would easily say that friberg is the only problem with NiP, he is inconsistent as fuck. He also isn't as good as he was in his peak a year or two ago. His style of playing has already been adopted to and adapted to. This is why he isn't able to be as flashy as he was prior to 2015.

2015-08-29 08:20
No coach will ever be of any help to NiP when they got xist as an IGL. He is stuck in his old ways of doing things.. Change the IGL and they might see improvements.
2015-08-29 09:56
I been saying this same thing since last year... Its been around 8 months now he can't adapt to the meta, hes a poor rifler, he cant awp, support? yeah, no. calling, tactics, strats, poor in every aspect, predictable, can't read his opponents, bad movement I can put alot more here but thats enough for you to see why I think Xizt needs to be removed from the team not just IGL hes the reason they can't progress. Inb4 ppl say hes a beast when hes no IGL, compare Xizt individual skil to any top teams tier 1 riflers before making retarded statements they need a new player not Xizt.
2015-08-29 20:31
Just release the whole team
2015-08-29 10:37

I expected something fresh, something new from NiP in ESLONE and we didn't get it, we saw the same strats on every map with very minor changes, they risked nothing and expected their performances to improve. They need more improvisation and superior strategies to get the most from their skills, friberg is still an absolute beast it's just they aren't making the most of their abilities, i think it's almost time an organisation like NiP go beyond a coach but a full bore team focused on statistical and form analysis focusing on their opponents weaknesses in every way possible, individual analysis of every individual in game.

take delpan and keep friberg? U high or what? Delpan sucked when he was tested by NiP. Friberg is in the biggest slump from all of the players.

Sign DW as coach
2015-08-29 14:45
maybe add pyth as entry fragger ? allu can maintain the awp. XIZT should not be all ingamelead, she should put a second IGL with him, GeT_RiGhT lurker. f0rest good with rifling and good with support and a secondary awp. YES the king of banana is no longer the king.
