friberg to stay in NiP

NiP have just announced the first player of their lineup heading into 2016, Adam "friberg" Friberg will continue to represent the Swedish organization ever since joining in 2012.

NiP have only won a single title in 2015, which was back at the end of January at ASUS ROG Winter, despite getting very close on a few occasions afterwards, including the first major - ESL One Katowice.

Earlier today NiP revealed that they would be announcing their new lineup heading into the new year in the next five days, with one player announced each remaining day until the end of the year.


friberg will continue to represent NiP in 2016 

It was widely expected for NiP to make a bigger change going forward, especially due to the build-up of hype that the Swedish organization has set for the announcements, although so far that doesn't seem to be the case.

The first is a player who has been with the organization ever since its reincarnation in 2012, Adam "friberg" Friberg, who also received a lot of criticism during this past year due to his drop in performance and was generally expected to be the one whom NiP would show the exit door.

Whether there will be any changes besides Aleksi "allu" Jalli, who left earlier this month, is to be revealed in the coming days, as per NiP's announcement.

That's kinda underwhelming. Btw, take my prediction: in the end, the roster will be exactly the same, with the addition of pyth. Anyway, I would like to see them with a dedicated IGL like pronax.

ROFL dead news for nip fans. last hope for nip to win again would be revamping its roster and mixing the legend duo with promising players like rain and jkaem. sucks to see that f0rest's desire of having his bff around prevailed over the team chances.
2015-12-27 18:59
Why people saying GTR is leaving? You guys are very dumb or very bad baiters. If not, source ?
2015-12-27 19:38
Because there was noticeable attention given to his potential move to C9, with him even confirming that he was interested in the offer but didn't want to leave his current teammates out to dry. It's a pretty solid conclusion that he might be interested in trying his luck elsewhere, even if he didn't go through with it initially.
2015-12-27 21:18
He isnt leaving. I said since summer almost that allu will be the one leaving and friberg stay. I said the day that pronax left fnatic that he would join nip. The last step to become true
2015-12-28 00:09
why do you want friberg to stay he's a t3 pro on a t1 team
2015-12-28 10:30
UNEXPECTED, WHY FRIBERG? I really thought it's disband after allu's anounce, like gtr to c9, forest somewhere else, xizt to analyst or caser or whatever, friberg retire, but NIP stay alive and with friberg? I'm arent' think that...this lineup will have future. A lot of players better than friberg, but NIP what the hell... Maybe he will stay in NIP as streamer or youtuber (education videos about cs) like ceh9 in NaVi, but not in gaming line up please... What the hell. Just RIP these 5 announces of line up after 1st. Or maybe they started from friberg cause no more forest and gtr in NIP anymore? WTF. (not replying on your post, just want to my comment be on top).
2015-12-27 21:20
unexcpected from our darude sandstorm hero =( the teams are really going down, if u really look up 2014 it was way more difference than now, the australian team vox eminor (who are now renegades) getting worse, aswell Penta is not even on the top 20 list? they havent won anything and teams like london conspiracy died and LGB because they splitted up aswell dignitas when nico got kicked things are really going worse way, but this is just my option doe but still
2015-12-27 21:50
But you're an idiot
2015-12-28 00:10
You are a complete idiot.. friberg retire? hes not even 25 yet, and you have pros like taz and neo reaching 30 and still playing... have you been living under a rock and haven't found out GeT_RiGhT confirmed that he was not joining c9..
2015-12-28 03:49
GTR said he's not going to C9

2015-12-27 18:11
Let's hope so, I wouldn't like too see him on NiP.
2015-12-27 18:13
its not like he has been streaming like 4h a day for the past days +him playing or not playing right now has nothing to do with him joining or not
2015-12-27 18:16
Yap, pro players don't play 14h a day of CS like some people think. Sometimes, they also like to play other games.

2015-12-27 18:12
Would prefer to see him on the team rather than pyth. Anyway, atm they really need some IGL. Xizt in being wasted on that role, he is an excellent fragger.

Be that as it may, Allu was their AWPer and he gon now = NiP are w/o an AWPer. Twist has been in an open position for a very long time now, and either they are going to sign Delpan or they are going to sign Twist. I am guessing they'll be more likely to sign Twist, because of reasons.
2015-12-27 18:17
I wouldn't mind to see f0rest awping again, but when he plays as a dedicated one, he doesn't seem to be very reliable. Anyway, I think both delpan and twist are overhyped by the community, but I really wouldn't mind see the second one on NiP. He has a fun and energetic playstyle.

2015-12-27 18:31
Please, yoy guys are som braindead it hurts. F0rest is good at AWPing,but now let me ask you a question... Is he amazing rifle and better headshot machine than ScreaM ? The answet is yes. If he would start AWPing, he would just waste his big,big rifler talent

Twist is absolute shit, why do you think nobody has snapped him up? why not even the likes of SK or dignitas? not a single top team wants twist so what does that tell you? Keeping friberg means NiP will do fuck all next year as he was the worst player by a mile.

arguable, but not by much.
2015-12-28 02:18
You call xizt bad. Lolololol xD
2015-12-27 18:10
xizt is terrible dude. a better fragger by far across the year, but that doesnt mean bad. he is by far the worst igl ever in a top team. would argue even flusha in fnatic is better.
2015-12-27 18:41
He is an outdated and bad IGL, yes, but he would do great at support probably. He calls strats, he should know the smokes and flashes they throw and so on.
2015-12-27 18:44
not for this team. he can do it for a different team, but this team needs a complete revamp and he cant end up staying igl. i dont think a new igl would be able to come in, dismiss everything that nip had so far and it wouldnt lead to problems. nah. xizt needs to go. he cant be the IGL, and he cant be in the team when a new IGL comes. they need to break up the whole fucking team. i hope only like forest stays from the old roster and noone else. like uve seen what happened when natu came in and tried to change shit. nothing happened. u think pronax or whoever could do it?
2015-12-27 18:48
Oh yes, you saw the change Olofmeister and KrimZ brought when they joined Fnatic. They brought frag power, which is what Xizt will bring if Pronax takes over the spot as IGL. He's a great fragger, really stepped up. So I don't see why you would not let Xizt be support to make Friberg full-entry instead of half-entry half-support. HE is best as entry ONLY, as we saw in 2014.
2015-12-27 20:26
read the last 2 sentences again that i wrote before. its real easy. a new team needs to be made. the old one cant be fixed.
2015-12-27 21:30
.
2015-12-27 22:10
I answered to that. They can revamp strats, and they gladly will, since Xizt and Friberg aren't comfortable about their roles in the team. Pronax can let them do that. Natu had no effect, he was just behind, saying "remember the strat" or adding something to it. An IGL switch needs to be made, and Pronax will revolutionize NiP as he revolutioninzed Fnatic back in 2013.
2015-12-28 00:07
Xizt is better than Pasha
2015-12-27 20:09
1.i didnt call u a faggot 2. u should search for facts/evidences etc before you urself post something
2015-12-27 20:49
i got evidence. u didnt call me a faggot, but the pic still applies.
2015-12-27 21:29
he is by far the worst igl ever in a top team. show evidence for this pls
2015-12-27 22:11
watch their games. watch it, homeboiiiii. watch everyone saying the team is dead for half a year.
2015-12-27 22:15
so team is dead for half a year is the evidence that xizt is by far the worst igl ever in a top team youtube.com/watch?v=oAKG-kbKeIo
2015-12-27 22:31
alright, stopping the discussion right there. u have never listened to any capable analysts i think so fuck that. if u dont believe me, at least believe the guys that have proven to know what they are talking about. and those guys are saying the same things i do.

2015-12-27 18:24
Pronax has not really been playing before but if you check his steamcommunity profile now he has 50 hours played in the last 2 weeks which means he is most likely going to join NiP and just preparing at the moment and getting back into it. When he left Fnatic he said that you would see more of him soon and considering the only "good" Swedish teams are Fnatic and NiP his second option will obviously be NiP.

2015-12-27 18:27
My opinion is that get_right and f0rest probably have good offers. NiP, due to bad results and for financial reasons, will probably want to get a team less expensive yet still competitive. Friberg isn't olofmeister, but he can still wreck everyone from time to time. I see a team on the lines of Titan, or Flipsid3. Maybe (just maybe): Friberg Xizt Delpan/Twist Pyth Pronax
2015-12-27 18:28
biggest joke of 2015 - NIP
2015-12-27 18:28
The spraying Swede knows how to keep his bullets under control in any circumstance. This recoil master has the ability to hold down a bomb site with unnerving efficiency giving his team the solid security of site control.

pronax in NiP would make totally sense, it's at least worth a try. I don't know why everyone is hating on pyth, he also can be considered as a good candidate, imo. but yeah, in theory there a way more "powerful" additions to the team who can be considered - but ain't realistic though...

why pyth ? overrated as fuck . give twist a try

not really i would say, he is a really good player, better then twist imo, but twist is still really good and deserves a chance just like pyth.

the succes of nip is the popularity of the players, not because they are a major winning machine. Kicking players just because of results can mean the end of a team.

This is nothing but marketing bullshit and taking home the $$ from viewership of news. It's surely just a replacement of Allu, announce it already...
2015-12-27 23:41
Would be amazing if they somehow could make it work with pronax as igl and xizt as fragger. Xizt is really good if he doesnt have to focus on calling.
2015-12-27 23:49
pronax - pyth - pauf. Pick one.
2015-12-27 23:49
Again friberg ? Omg rip top 50 again
2015-12-27 23:50
I think it's good that friberg sticks with NiP. I think he's on a good way to find his old Form...To be honest, i don't think that NiP needs a big Roster change, they still have Players with unreal skill like F0rest, GTR And even Friberg and Xizt. Especially Xizt is a Madfragger..My opinion: Change the IGL and add one more Player. I just think they have to find their new Style..

Hay guys! I'm going to share my opinion about this. My message is 20 letters long (including spaces). To make it more exciting than an ordinary hltv-comment, I will reveal one letter per year, starting today: I

n1 we believe in you!
2015-12-28 00:35
GOD Allu leaves, botberg stays. OK, WP!
2015-12-28 00:39
If they keep the old line-up except allu, their only chance of winning anything in 2016 will be to bring pronax, otherwise it will be a very similar situation to 2015, maybe even worse as allu wasn't too bad.
2015-12-28 01:01
allu was prolly the best player in semi or grandfinals for nip

Lets be honest, It was flip a coin between Friberg and Allu, most of the time it was one of these 2 players bottom fragging. But when Friberg puts in the hours he is one of the best riflers in the world. (The only time he showed that this year tho was vs tsm at cluj and at katowice). Anyway RIP GOD ALLU and LONG LIVE FRIBURGER
2015-12-28 01:20
What have you been watchin..
2015-12-28 11:09
Allu bottom fragging? Max 5 times in total. He was usually top fragging or second.

friberg hasn't been the best or even top 5 in his position for a while, hopefully this will bolster him to practice harder and be better, otherwise it will be a repeat performance of 2015 and with the possibility of getright/forest gone, may have more stress without someone to carry them in certain games

2015-12-28 08:26
+1 Or if friberg goes from 1. fragger to 2. Fragger
2015-12-28 12:13
five days, zero titles next year
2015-12-28 08:50
It was widely expected
2015-12-28 09:11
I think it will be the same but -Allu and +Pronax.
2015-12-28 09:13
I think it should be someone like slap, a rising young star that has future potential.

"was generally expected to be the one whom NiP would show the exit door." I don't agree with this, he's the entry fragger, they're not expected to be 30 bombing every single game, as long as he entry & give proper info he has done his job, but the silvers @HLTV has big difficulties understanding that. What nip really needs is a big, consistent awper like guardian, A consistent aimstar like s1mple & a decent IGL that can reintroduce nip.
2015-12-28 09:48
he did nothing in the past 6 months or something like that, entry frags? really? go back 2013 and then I could agree with you, at that point he was kinda useless. (I like NiP but at that point friberg should step up a bit)

did nothing? you don't even need to get the kills as an entryfragger, as long as you spot where they are & give proper info, you have done your job.
2015-12-28 13:20
the rest of nip players will be the same with the addition of PORNAX!! u heard it first
2015-12-28 09:53
great gamer ! :)
2015-12-28 10:31
Getting owed HUGE SUMS OF MONEY under two(2) different ownerships and still staying. Must have been a huge fucking check they wrote, or these players are fucking retarded.
2015-12-28 10:35
f0rest awp and pr0nax igl thank me later
2015-12-28 10:51
