NiP sign REZ; friberg steps down

MIRAA
June 12th, 2017 21:05

Ninjas in Pyjamas have announced the signing of Fredrik “REZ” Sterner from Epsilon.

The 19-year-old will replace Adam "friberg" Friberg, who has stepped down from the active roster, bringing an end to a long association that began in August 2012, when the NiP brand was revived by Emil "HeatoN" Christensen.

Fredrik "REZ" Sterner becomes the second player to join NiP from Epsilon, following in the footsteps of William "draken" Sundin, who signed for the team in March.

The Swedish giants hoped that by bringing in a dedicated AWPer to replace Jacob "pyth" Mourujärvi they would be able to end a run of poor form that had seen them miss the ELEAGUE Major.

REZ will play for NiP

But results continued to worsen even after injecting some new blood as NiP finished 9th-11th at the SL i-League StarSeries Season 3, 5th-6th at cs_summit, 10th in ESL Pro League and 12th-14th in the closed qualifier for the Europe Minor, which meant that, for the second time in a row, they would sit out the biggest event in the world.

REZ is widely regarded as one of the most talented young players hailing from Scandinavia. He holds a LAN Rating of 1.15 and his biggest achievements to date are winning the World Cyber Arena Finals and placing 5th-8th at WESG.

"I am extremely happy to have been given the opportunity to play for NiP,” he told NiP’s website. “This is a dream for every player who is working their way into the top scene.

"Together with the NiP team, I strongly believe we will reach the top. Reuniting with draken is also something that I am really looking forward to as he has been a longtime teammate and a close friend.

"I am stoked to continue my career together with him and the other guys at NiP.”

friberg’s future is unclear at this point, but HLTV.org knows that the 25-year-old remains contracted to NiP and will be offered a position within the organization if he does not continue playing.

friberg remains under a contract with NiP

While representing NiP, friberg won several international titles, including one Major, ESL One Cologne 2014. He also helped the team to finish second at four other Valve-sponsored tournaments, between 2013 and 2015.

"Our change took longer than what a normal esports team would have done, but again, we are not a normal esports team," NiP explained.

"The ties between players, management and staff are extremely tight, we all consider each other as best friends and a true family."

NiP now have:

If allu was their best player then how come f0rest and gtr were placed in better position in top 20 list of 2015? Maikelele was never their best player. The fact that you even consider pyth to be their best player proves that you are just a hater of those core players.he sucked whole year. He was the one who lost them that match vs Navi at esl cologne . Even friberg was better than pyth and friberg had tougher roles(utility player in both pistol rounds and entry fragger).
2017-06-13 06:23
Because their 5th has always had to adapt to whatever role they had left. In the case of pyth, they forced him to pick up the AWP at every opportunity even when he didn't feel like it. And judging his whole time with nip on one game is a joke. You can do that with every single player in the world. Meanwhile, GTR and f0rest always got the roles they wanted the most. Oh and friburger hadn't been a true entry fragger for quite a while, I hope you realise that.

That guy is right . Pyth was terrible. You do know that pyth was awping as CT player , right? f0rest was their main awper in their t-sides which is 10x times harder than awping as ct. GTR gave up his lurker role which he has been doing since 1.6 and did some entryfragging also. Sometimes you have to do what is necessary for the team even though you "dont like it." I dont get it. What do you mean adapt to whatever role that is left? They picked up allu and maikelele to be their main awpers. They knew what they are getting into. I dont even want to talk about pyth. He was their worst player in terms of impact. I can accept that kicking allu was a mistake but kicking pyth and maikelele was required.

BillClinton in NiP >>>>>>pyth or Maikelelelein NiP
2017-06-13 14:46
Yep Maikelele when he came back for that tourney was better than when he first played with them, and was the right style of AWPer to have especially for a short term so people can't adapt to the new team. draken is a great pickup though, thinking longer term he could be a superstar if he's committed enough pyth just turned out to be too inconsistent tho right ? only paid attention to him a few games when he stood out, but you're only as good as your average games, highs and lows mean less

2017-06-13 01:19
Kindof is a waste, nip need a better igl to develop young talents like rez and drakon, also -xist+threat.
2017-06-13 07:06
-xizt is actually good. Maybe right now get_right is a problem?
2017-06-13 12:22
lol there is not a better Team for young talents like Draken and Rez to be in, i mean Forest and xizt and Get_right has so much knowledge to give these kids I think this will be perfect for NiP. Just kick Threat and if Get_right doesn't start playing better kick him to.

you mental? -xizt before that
2017-06-12 21:52
either -Xizt and a new dedicated IGL,cuz if he`s igleading he cant play well for himself ,and he`s a different player when he is not igl
2017-06-12 22:48
No need igl just bring in maikelele and have pronax coach. Friberg to godsent. Win win situation for both teams.
2017-06-13 01:31
But XIZT is more firepower than pronax and has the mind to lead a new team with these 5 players. It's gonna take a good deal of time but it should be worth it. If these 5 players had the tactics and teamplay (years of synergy in a mostly unchanged system) of Astralis there would be no problem. IMO give them time to develop a system around the new young star players and adapt ! the old core don't need to be out duelling the best players of today if they build around the young guns. They'll do fine as support/anchor/clutch etc type players if they work hard enough on it as a new team and new style. Just putting new players in and giving them the roles that were vacated won't change much, long term the flaws in the old structure and mentality will just resurface. If they can't change mentality/decision making eventually just replace them all one day. Either way I like the direction NiP is going, THREAT didn't get a chance to go deep enough into rebuilding the team, now there is a chance they change almost everything and get the most out of their guys
2017-06-14 09:08
Xizt used to be great firepower,especially in 1.6,he lost that when he got the igl role,and that is holding him,he can be a very good player if he`s not igl i think

2017-06-12 21:12
I dont understand why people still care about NIP. Its obvious they dont care about their fans....fans want to see their favorite team win, and NIP doesnt care about winning or else they would have made changes a long time ago. As long as they are making money they are fine with going out in group stages.
2017-06-12 21:13
same said about c9
2017-06-12 21:15
oh i agree 100%, theres alot of teams that are just in it for the money now, but NIP is the worst culprit of them all...
2017-06-12 21:18
Dude real fans dont care about the brand they are playing in we care about the players
2017-06-12 21:28
thats my point...dont u want the players to win? They dont care about winning or they would have made changes a long time ago. All they want is money.
2017-06-13 01:16
I do want them to win but I dont care if they lose i just like the players

That's a big mistake in my opinion. Friberg is a really good player, I know he had some bad monts, but I have to say that he's a really good player and he was playing good recently. I don't know what to say really, good luck NiP and I hope it wasn't a big mistake, but we'll see in the upcoming tournament.

It was time.... hopefully everyone starts pulling their weight now. Rez has been good against lower tier teams, he hasnt really performed surprisingly well against tier 1-2 teams, so will be nice to see if he can evolve to a top level player.
2017-06-12 21:32
omfg why? friberg was not a problem and rez and draken isnt a solution.. hope adam steps in good team, gl

HOLY SHIT FINALLY!!! I'm bringing out the champagne bottle for this. EDIT: On a serious note, Friberg did extremely well on the couch at CS_Summit, he was great on the mic with some decent banter and he had some interesting play-by-play analysis too. I wouldn't mind seeing him doing some casting/analysis in the future. GL Fribbe, I love you but this is the right choice.
2017-06-12 21:42
I'm pretty sure he's gonna end up as a caster. Looking forward to friberg-fiffy casting.

2017-06-12 21:45
Friberg being targeted the same way Fifflaren was. Fifflaren had his weak moments but he was otherwise quite decent on some maps that helped make NiP one of the worlds best team. Was friberg the problem all along? I doubt it, I actually think he was pretty good and had some memorable clutches even though NiP struggled. I think GTR has been the biggest issue since the minor qualifier loss vs Vega and if he doesn't improve now and suddenly start playing better then I dunno whats going to save this team.

I agree Xizt would have been better removing
2017-06-12 21:46
Yeah if NiP keep picking maps the way they do and underestimate teams then they really need a new IGL or a coach with authority that can discipline the players. I still think +karrigan when he was available would have been the best for the team. Imagine karrigan re-building the team and getting GTR back to form and improving the teams strats and the way they play. + Xizt can go back to just rifling instead of calling

Even though Friberg has been playing awful the last Year and a Half. Another unproven Tier 3 player? Even though Rez is the same boat as Draken and Draken is a Top player on Nip now. Just because they don't play on a Tier 1 or 2 team doesn't mean they don't have the potential to do well on a Tier 1 or 2 team. Thats why every great player doesn't start on the best possible team.

They should have done this way earlier..
2017-06-13 01:52
thats what i thought, too little too late. everyone was playing shit out of the core 4... what use is removing friberg now when gtr is playing just as bad now
2017-06-13 03:52
Yeah exactly, also REZ had his peak a few months ago, i mean hes still a good player, but not as good as he was like a half year ago.

Would be nice if fhe was able to come into a young swedish team or godsent and help mold some players. this needed to be done a while ago, but it's hard to not feel a little bad when the guy is a legend and a great personality. I honestly think this will turn NIP into a top10 team now. GTR has been playing like poo lately but he seems to always have his ups and downs. everyone saying "-gtr instead of -fri" haven't been paying attention the last 2 years.

2017-06-13 04:05
I think it's too little, too late. Judging by how poorly they're all playing I'd say team morale and cohesion is now in the negatives sadly. :(
2017-06-13 04:06
Finally. But i don't think Nip will be better just with some player changes. They need to rebuild all their system. They should bring at least a new coach to rebuild everything from scratch since they are already fucked by now.

I don't know why, but friberg always caused exciting situations, like this one in katowice 2015 grand final 3rd map (my heart actually stopped) youtu.be/1NN1CjhH7rA It was obvious that something had to change though for NiP and I hope this was the right call. Gl to both parties. Thank Mr. Friberg!
2017-06-13 08:10
As long as they have the 3 legends, the other 2 will learn and become even more powerful. just a matter of time before they start winning
2017-06-13 08:24
I don't know what to say. I stopped following the CS:GO scene around the time NiP started falling off, and only got back into it a couple months ago. I was never really a friberg fanboy, but I've been a NiP fan pretty much since their inception. Best of luck to him, in whatever he may do next =)

2017-06-13 16:03
They need consistent awper that can be an anchor as well, draken is right choice i think. Twist is god, but his snip style is an aggresive one pretty similiar to forest. They don't need two people that can play same role

Finally this bot out. thanks NiP ceo. rez - is a god
2017-06-13 09:42
Well, REZ has impressive mechanical aim, but as a player he's still an MM-like nerd that doesn't know when to rush and when to hide. I'm not sure if xizt and THREAT can actually teach him anything, because NiP suck and they suck due to poor tactical play. But yeah, friberg needed to step down, he hasn't been on point for many months. pyth friberg Maikelele aizy Ex6TenZ - new superteam

next to step down from NiP active roster should be gtr, if he will still perform as bad, as he did for the last 2,5 - 3 years now,
2017-06-13 20:46
Lmfao. In a game based solely on experience they drop someone for less experience. They are trying so hard to make this look like skill is involved...give up this scene is a joke. Csgo is way too inconsistent for pros to exist.

Epsilon in Pyjamas. Look how far "true family" values got you in the last 2-3 years? I'm sorry but CSGO is a game and e-sports is a business. If you lose and continue to lose, which NiP will continue doing, nothing will remain of said "family" as NiP is a joke in every game they have a team in.

2017-06-14 01:00
Yeah, their problem is not only about skills, but team spirit, teamplay. hope now they can fix it... at least 50% until cologne.

2017-06-14 07:25
Who will be next as young players take over ? Makes sense, NiP can acquire and establish young talents and build for the future, new players with eager mentality and not at all set in their ways, keen af to play hard and learn and become a star, and NiP can sign them to long contracts as they become worth it, giving a strong foundation ? Can't stop progress, in every sport a new generation always comes along, the bar always raises as the new generations take over.. nothing to be sad about. Here's to the good old days Mr Friberg, and thanks for the memories !
