NiP announce pyth return

Ninjas in Pyjamas have announced that Jacob "pyth" Mourujärvi will return to their active lineup with immediate effect.

The 23-year-old spent the last three months on the sidelines recovering from an hand injury, with Mikail "Maikelele" Bill, a former member of NiP, coming on in his stead on a temporary basis.

With Maikelele as a stand-in, NiP won the StarLadder i-League StarSeries Season 2 and finished third-fourth at the ESL Pro League Season 4 Finals. 


pyth back on NiP's roster 

Before Saturday's match against G2 Esports in the group stage of ELEAGUE Season 2, Maikelele hinted that it could be his "final match" for the team, who would beat the Frenchmen 2-0 to secure a spot in the playoffs of the $1.4 million competition.

"I got more nervous from watching the matches at home than playing them because you get a different view of the game," Mourujärvi told NiP's website.

"Sometimes when they lost I wish I could do something about it.

"It feels really good to be back again with the boys. Thanks for the support and everyone that believes in me!"

NiP's first event with Jacob "pyth" Mourujärvi back on the roster will be IEM Oakland, from November 16-20, a tournament that will have $300,000 on offer.

The Swedish giants are back to the following lineup:

Sweden Christopher "GeT_RiGhT" Alesund
Sweden Patrik "f0rest" Lindberg
Sweden Richard "Xizt" Landström
Sweden Adam "friberg" Friberg
Sweden Jacob "pyth" Mourujärvi

2016-11-06 20:12
I think lele supported the team moral a lot. His biggest impact wasn't the fragging power, it was that the other players were happy around him. Not sure if pyth is able to fill that spot...

I fully agree with you he was ok with some Highlights but his morale boosting ability's were seen from a Far
2016-11-06 23:07
Dont get me wrong, for me the big problem has allways been xizt. He sucks as a IGL and is forced to IGL for some stupid reason, they improved so much when threat was calling and xizt was just a normal player(wich fits him waaay better). TL:DR : Lack of a good IGL is what dragging nip down according to me.

Its something called the coach rule wich allowe a coach to only speak at halftime and pauses. And xizt is performing.
2016-11-06 20:54
You did not read at all did You? WHEN threat was ingame calling they played way better and ha good strats etc, without threat calling they are not playing as combined with good strats, Xizt has never been a stratcalling mastermind, but he has allways been a good consistent rifler. Fifflaren was amazing with strats but to hard as a igl for gtr and forest, but he still made alot of the strats they used.

agree with you, i feel like they need IGL, Xizt isn't great IGL. I don't think NIP will be successful with pyth.I starting missing Maikelele.
2016-11-06 21:36
I really think pronax would make them a solid team to compete for the no1 spot, they need more brain behind all the firepower they have. :)

Sweden pontus767 
Xizt is good as an ingameleader. With Threat called it was good in the beggining. Mostly because it was a totaly new playstyle. But after that they went out last in ECS and did not even get their legend spot in the major. But when Threat got the more passive role and Xizt could lead the team again they instantly won a tournament. And Xizt is still fragging as igl. Actually better rating now than with threat as igl.
2016-11-06 21:46
They won thanks to maikelele that performed amazing wich made friberg, gtr and forest to really wake up. just like last time he joined them, maikelele is good for gtr wich is good for the entire team.

You do know that lelele has not been like godly topfragging right?. He has been good but actually the majority of times it's xizt and friberg that has been fragging except the match on cobblestone xD so if pyth can play good i think nip has a very good chance at winning Oakland and E-league

I think I have a pretty good understanding of cs thank you. Why are you angry xD I just said what I think and if you don't agree with me fine but no need to be a dick about it.
2016-11-06 23:56
You realize that they won star series with xzist calling and b4 big bO3 matches threat sends analysis and strats. On boot camp threat still give strats. Xzist only has to do very little in terms of being igl. He only reacts based on kills deaths and where to execute. Pyth was 2nd to 1st best player on Nip during his time with them since gtr and forest were mostly out of it. I dont think they will do bad with pyth maybe he become rusty at worst but never a bot friberg
2016-11-07 03:01
And that is why maikelele is good for nip, friberg gtr and f0rest is waking up. Xizt is famous for being easy to predict and nip is famous for allways do the same stuff over and over again, it became a little bit better with threat but would be so much better with a real IGL. The firepower is more than enough in nip but the brains aint there, its dragging everyone down, you just notice it the most on friberg atm(wich has been playing so much better since maikel joined).

Serbia whoa!! 
what? firepower is definitely not enough in nip.f0rest and friberg are inconsistent,xizt sucks and pyth is mediocre af.All other teams have 3 or more players who can deliver game winning performances.In nip its always either f0rest or get-right who will be on top whenever they win.They need someone with high skill ceiling.
2016-11-07 10:51
gtr f0rest and friberg cn deliver, with a better IGL they would deliver even more since they are getting used poorly atm.
2016-11-07 10:54
#420
 | 
Serbia whoa!! 
they cant deliver always and when that happens there is no other player in nip good enough to take over.Even if others under perform f0rest or GT can win matches by themselves but opposite is not possible.well friberg is on par with forest and gtr in temrs of skill(atleast aim-wise) but he never performs :(.They would have been so good with twist instead of pyth.
2016-11-07 10:59
Both pyth and twist are bad players, maikalele is kinda perfect for nip. Plus he wakes up the other payers in the team, pyth is just simply not a tier1 player and will never be. Twist is also super overhyped cause of 1 event where he played decent, ha never played as good after that even like 3 years ago.
2016-11-07 11:02
#422
 | 
Serbia whoa!! 
imo twist has higher potential than both maiklele and pyth.Even if he is a little bit inconsistent it is worth having him cuz there is a less chance that 3 players will have bad game on the same day,too bad it's not gonna happen anymore.Let's just hope pyth can improve his gameplay.

Totally agree there. Maikelele makes the whole team better. He can get the first frag with the AWP wich gives the others more freedom. I think threat would not allow that, and Pyth cant do it. So #LELESQUAD
2016-11-07 19:41
Maybe Xizt wouldn't be the problem if he was away from being the IGL, considering he makes better performances, although lately, he's been doing better, in an underrated fashion.
2016-11-07 02:27
Yeah, he is not a problem in terms of being a normal player. But his calling is kinda famous to being easy to predict and not so much thoughts behind it.
2016-11-07 10:38
Friberg is an offliner, it would be very stupid to kick him IMO

Yeah but Lele is doing ok. And Friberg is doing very well with Maikel. And Pyth is a little bit above average when he plays for Nip. But with pyth friberg is doing very bad and is around 0,9 ore something.
2016-11-06 20:10
Stats don't mean everything. Also you got to consider that NiP farmed their first 10/60 maps with disco where they literally won like 8/10 matches which inflated their ratings but didn't inflate Maikelele's rating as he wasn't there.

What I'm trying to say is that after the break the first 10 maps in the last 3 months were played with disco, not with Maikelele and NiP won 8/10 of those maps which inflated the other NiP member's stats. Due to this Maikelele has a bit lower stats then the other NiP members when realistically if those 10 maps were not included then Maikelele would probably have the third highest stats in MiP.
2016-11-06 20:19
forgive him, he's a kid.
2016-11-06 21:04
I wonder where he will go, maybe Epsilon considering they need a 5th. Although they do already have an AWPer in Draken. I'm surprised Fnatic didn't wait to pick him up instead of taking Doplan.

I think pyth is better for NiP than lele I like Maikelele and he looks good in NiP, but I think NiP has more potential to improve with Pyth they seem to be stagnating with lele imao also I think pyth is underrated because he is ugly and has no charisma I prefer my pros hot and spicy too, but for a pro gamer performance ingame should be more important than that.

United Kingdom Jonty04l32 
lmao. An apt analysis, at best :P Regardless, I completely agree Pyth should be back in NiP. Maikelele is amazing and all, but in terms of sheer individual skill level, Pyth will win everytime. Maikelele is a better AWP'er, but Pyth is an all-round better rifler, better pistol player, a far better clucher and is insane with the AWP himself. Young talent is what NiP needs right now. All of this rest will make Pyth more dominant than ever. Good day, animere :)

Slightly strange idea: NiP should keep Maikelele on as a streamer and permanent stand-in (sixth player.) Have him join their practice and keep him in the loop in strat-talks. Maybe not what Maikelele had in mind, of course, but I think it could work.
2016-11-06 19:31

2016-11-06 19:33
4 real tho. I thought the same thing when olof was "recovering from an injury" IMO something was being investigated, weather it was throwing, cheating or some other infraction I have enough confidence in that opinion I'd lick pyth's fat sweaty palm if I am mistaken.
2016-11-07 05:29

People are seriously overrating Maikelele, he did good in star ladder then the next 3 lans he was just very average. I'm glad pyth is back, he has a higher skill ceiling and is way more impactful based on what I've seen fromo him. It will be sad to see retards giving pyth a hard time when he makes mistakes and somehow say that maikelele was the problem or some stupid shit.
2016-11-06 19:43
Both pyth and maikelele suck, but as a whole, maikelele is better for this team. Im still stuck with the idea of: -pyth, Friberg +Flusha, JW

Haha, what? Besides Pyth had around 0.15 better rating during the same timespan as Maikel. The rest of the team playing better doesn't directly mean it's due to Maikelele you know? Pyth IS statistically a better player than Maikel this year, that's a fact. They also achieved just as much with pyth eventhough they performed worse individually which points to much better symmetry and teamplay.

NiP continue to disappoint me, they weren't an elite team with Maikelele standing-in, but they were on the right path. Pyth they couldn't even get out of groups at a major with.

Pyth wasnt even the problem that lost them the major spot.

f0rest pretty much played t-side awp all the time with Maikelele. Pyth is also very capable picking it up as a 2nd. Its not an waste.

This makes no sense. Made disco doplan am offer as a main. He declines. They use Maikelele for awhile, who helps them actually start doing good again and win some things. Now pyth is back and Maikelele not signed to Nip
2016-11-07 00:54
dont worry nip have more 3 important tournament this year, if pyth is really the problem next major will be kicked.

I agree completely. Young talent is what NiP needs right now and Pyth is the way to go. Maikelele is a better AWP'er than Pyth, but Pyth is better a rifler, clutcher, pistol-player (most notably - desert eagle), entry-fragger and support-player. Plus, he's not exactly a novice with the AWP himself. Congratulations, Jacob. Salutations and best of luck for your upcoming matches!! :)

Pyth have to prove himself from now to the end of year. IEM ockland,ELeague final,ECS (i doubt NiP in finals coz Eleague major main qualifier just 3 days after ECS,so nip highly throw ESC season 2 ).If NiP do not qualifier for major.Pyth would get kick for sure.

People who complain about NIP not going for Maikelele need to understand that there are something called contracts, pyth is a contracted player and Maikelele was always a short-term standin due to injury. pyth is a very capable player, my only worry is that he won't be on the same level as before the injury when he resume active duty. We've seen that with Olofmeister and Guardian.... both having problems getting to that level they had before their injuries.

Sucks to see Maikelele leave but he was just a stand in after all.

I feel like they should've stuck with lele, the results and most important the chemistry were there. The NIP 5th player conundrum goes on...
