friberg open to North America move

MIRAA
June 22nd, 2017 15:53

Ninjas in Pyjamas member Adam "friberg" Friberg has admitted that he is receptive to the idea of furthering his career in North America.

The 25-year-old said in an interview with Richard Lewis that he will only agree to move to North America if he receives an offer from a team that he "really believes in" and that can "bring home titles".

Adam "friberg" Friberg is currently considering his options after stepping down from NiP's active roster earlier this month to make way for Fredrik "REZ" Sterner, who joined the team from Epsilon.

friberg does not close the door on a move to North America

He remains contracted to NiP, which means that he would have to be bought out of his contract to be able to join another team. Should he decide to hang up his mouse, NiP are willing to offer him a position within the organisation.

During his time with NiP, friberg won several international tournaments, most notably the ESL One Cologne 2014 Major. His last offline event for NiP was cs_summit, where the team finished 5th-6th.

Honestly, C9 are in better need of an IGL at the moment rather then someone like Friberg. -Shroud, +Daps or +FNS IMO
2017-06-22 15:59
daps is washed up. dont see fns leaving clg for now. friberg might be a good addition, he could help stew to become a better igl. still friberg is an improvment to shroud

fns would leave clg in a minute if c9 offered him a contract

2017-06-23 07:29
A lot of things go into roster moves other than the factors you mentioned. Teammate compatibility, morale in current team, etc. That's why tryouts are held, and especially for a in game leader, personality in the team matters
2017-06-22 16:32
IIRC: FNS was igl with the core lineup in 2014 for a brief period with shroud, n0thing, and ska. He got axed but has since made a career comeback
2017-06-22 17:19
wtF? ROFL no
2017-06-22 17:33
You are correct my bad! I mixed up cloud9 and complexity; I was thinking of valens for some reason
2017-06-22 17:52
exactly, plus finesse feels at home with CLG, he loves ImAPet and seems pretty happy there
2017-06-22 17:35
+1 And i dont think C9 would be able to offer him a salary that is much better than what he gets from CLG, i think Liquid could but they just got stanislaw ^^ -shroud +friberg -ska +FNX stewie could IGL and awp, no worries about that. otherwise keep ska (he doesn't deserve to be in team anymore.)
2017-06-22 18:26
maybe you havent realized but fnx keeps getting kicked
2017-06-22 19:03
FNX doesnt speak english
2017-06-22 19:17
neither did taco or cold but they have learned, fox didn't speak english either. It takes u 1 month and then u can understand the others and 2 month and u can communicate with them decent
2017-06-22 21:47
Err, no. FNX was leaving in the US for a long time and couldnt learn how to speak "understandable" english, just check the "recent" donation videos, its basically random english words mixed with portuguese ones
2017-06-25 04:21
he never tried to learn english lol.. If he wanted he could've
2017-06-25 11:34
Do you really think that he was living in the US and wasnt "trying" to learn the language? Really?
2017-06-26 03:04
That's the problem!
2017-06-22 21:49
At least they don't say "I'm feeling, Thank you." like XANTARES
2017-06-22 23:40
if FNX joins cloud9 then that ruins all the american's dream of having a US team become the champion.
2017-06-23 03:20
nope, c9 will never get anywhere wit this line-up, they have the org but the only dreams NA has is CLG and Liquid :/ If C9 keeps 3, they could still have the NA flag at HLTV at official matches, which is the best the can do ^^

In NA this doesn't seem at all how roster changes work at least not for the big orgs who seem like retards and cheap asses who rather pick up random unknowns then actually buy someone out of their contracts.
2017-06-22 20:50
Not at all lmao
2017-06-23 04:31
It's hard to be washed up when you never arrived.
2017-06-22 19:31
daps is hardly washed up, frags better than shroud and has ore in depth tactics than stewie. anyway adding friberg over shroud makes the team better, even if it isnt the best solution it is steps in the right direction

shroud might be in a slump currently but lol he is still better than friberg. friberg failed to adapt and is stuck in 2014.
2017-06-22 16:25
shroud is in a bit of a slump, but Friberg would bring sooooo much experience to the team... not to mention European experience... i think it would be a good move
2017-06-22 16:28
I think you overvalue friberg's experience. friberg's experience comes from winning a lot of tournaments before other teams got good and adapted, which is a couple of years ago now. friberg's experience isn't really that much of a value for c9 worth risking unless he has mad skills - which he does not have I'm afraid.
2017-06-23 04:29
experience meaning time in the pro scene... he's been around for a looooong time and he's been involved with all different types of strategies he will bring so much outside knowledge to a NA team, whether or not he's been performing well recently
2017-06-23 16:35
You need to be more specific. How will friberg's experience benefit C9? In what way? Being involved with all different types of strategies doesn't mean he knows how to deal with all types of strategies, and not necessarily better than the C9 members. So I think you overvalue friberg's experience too much here. I think if you put friberg in a tier 2 NA team, his experience will shine through, but not necessarily in the top 3 teams (NA).
2017-06-23 17:45
why do i need to be more anything? friberg has been in the european CS pro scene for a very long time and was actually involved in some of the core strategies and methodologies that are still in play right now.. his knowledge and experience will help any NA team that he goes and works for (if he decides to go to NA at all) i don't care if his skill level has been lackluster lately, we're talking about a player who has been in the scene since like the beginning...
2017-06-23 17:55
You need to be more specific because you are just speculating. You are saying friberg is soooo valuable for C9 instead of shroud because of his experience, even when his skill has been lackluster. I disagree with that, and my point is that friberg's experience won't be enough to compete with shroud, because friberg's experience contains playing poorly the last 3 years.

I aint saying it was a good move. I just figured Liquid are pretty happy with their team rn, c9 built their team on streamers and vloggers, i dont think friberg has the personality for that. Also dont see him going to some tier 5000 na shithole team. So if he's going to NA its probs OpTic, they need a 5th. Maybe friberg try IGL, maybe they will create a fnatic style loose play team

its most likely... because they already have a european(M1xwell) and they were friendly in fpl so friberg would be less scared to join. also dont they have a team house. which is perfect for an out of country person. I mean how lonely would it be to live alone and play cs. (jk thats me) but I think clg - cutler +friberg might be inc think fns dedicated IGL-- we know friberg performs in a system koosta- everyone loves good guy koosta nahte- young talent rickeh- wildcard friberg- very experienced headstrong player

Well a steady 5th is better than a Hazed sub or Pimp for a few months... because lets be honest... they aren't going to find another S1mple. Friberg will brong back the Hiko playmaker aspect to the team, and it can really work of they give him time
2017-06-22 23:00
you seem pretty out of the loop - Liquid have no individual weakness talent-wise on their team right now (though nitr0 has fallen off big time). Hazed has never been on Liquid... Pimp is back in EU... Hiko has had a .88 rating 2.0 for 2017 on LAN, and was actually NEVER a playmaker. Basically the opposite role as Friberg.

Mixwell will soon leave optic, he deserves much more, Friberg to Optic/C9 to replace either Shroud or Mixwell. Then Shroud would stay as full time streamer / Mixwell would join some european team etc Faze/Mouz, I can't say who he would replace but he deserves much more than Optic has to offer.
2017-06-22 16:03

Let me correct some things for you. Mixwell is not an awper, he doesn't want to awp, he said it in his interview. He just is the best awper in Optic so he has to take the role. ChrisJ has not been the main awper in Mouz after getting benched and coming back. He is fine being the 2nd awper. That leaves Oskar to be the main awper.

Also I've been AWPing a lot more than before. I've embraced the AWP role because we need it, I kinda hate it though. I hate it a lot, but I have to do it for the team.

No Oskar have tweeted out about Dennis being the igl they did not have chrisj before he got banched so how did they have no igl? At that time?? So no Chrisj is not the igl bud

in his bench time, NiKo igl'd the team lol after he left, chrisJ came back into the roster and had to call/igl for the team
2017-06-22 19:15
Agree chrisj is quite bad
2017-06-22 16:25
Considering that hes an awper his rifle got better. But stil mouz dont need a third awper. What they need is an igl. Mouz fucked themselves when they kicked gob
2017-06-22 16:34
Dennis is doing a decent job tbh, that's why I said - crhisj got mix well can awp and rifler better than him. Problem with getting igl mouz will need 1 that will frags like gob b but too late for that rip

It must be sad being "only" 25 and having your career coming to an end. Especially when you look at young players that, although they've been in the scene for a while, are winning major championships.
2017-06-22 15:58
I wonder how friberg would play if he didnt have to constantly go in dry like he did most of the time back when he was on nip.
2017-06-22 15:58

2017-06-22 17:52
Lets believe in his comeback!
2017-06-22 17:57
lol they probably let him go to try and make more money from the cash cow because they know he'll have to be bought out. he's a fucking dead weight on any team, he isn't in a position to be picky about who he goes to, everyone is laughing at his comment about only a team who can bring home titles.
2017-06-22 16:12
Was about to be mad, then i saw your flag i thought "-Oh, deadweight, like any UK player in the history of csgo!" The reason friberg is such a great player is because he can play about any position on any map (not awp positions). I also believe Friberg would be alot better with a new team if he gets motivated. Motivation was obviously a problem in NiP.
2017-06-22 16:54
Yeah they're valid points unlike your UK point.

one of the sad thing about hltv is that, if there is any news about any player/team that isn't tier 1 at this day and age, people either hate on them, talk shit on them, or just don't give a fuck about them at all... I honestly think friberg is still a legend despite his current situation, just like Richard Lewis said in his videos, and i hope Adam doesnt really hang up his mouse anytime soon, even if it means seeing him play for a tier 2 or tier 3 team i'd support him all the way cuz he still wants to play CS.
2017-06-22 18:02
He's not a legend LOL. He played csgo that's it. NEO, f0rest, GTR are legends. Even most 1.6 fnatic members are more legends then he is.

Not a legend? He was part of a team that got the longest win streak in CS history and was a insane fragger in the beginning of csgo. I would consider him a legend.
2017-06-23 01:54
"The beginning" NiP was the only team that out in hundreds of hours more then anyone else so their beginning success is the most over rated in the history of sport. Its like they basically could have invented the game played together for ages then let everyone else start playing. So if you call someone a legend for doing that??? That's not legend. That's an easy path to success. Not a legendary way to do it lol. And when competition finally caught up and the game got hard he couldn't keep up and was never good enough to compete with the big boys. So if you call this been a legend then you can use it on a fuck load of players that didn't have an easy path to success lol
2017-06-24 00:04
he should earn his own brand streaming, and make some good money of NA orgs... and chill and enjoy life =D he deserves <3 he is a legend!!

I would rather see him in EU team than in NA, or just hang around and stream. If he'd like to join NA team only reasonable choice right now is optic. C9 will be stuck with bots forever and friburger is not solution for them anyway. And fns leaving CLG would be very discutable move (or bad if you will), probably as bad as stan leaving optic. CLG are currently quite good lookin like optic was while ago (before stan left). Look at optic AND liquid now. Both just... NA team ^^

2017-06-22 21:22
Niko talks about his rating. Top players care about rating because when they reach the top then that is something else to play for as their ambitions are different to lower players who strive for other things like their team just making playoffs. Don't comment on something you don't know about and act like a boss about it lol. New kid calling people New kids. What a fkn joke Edit: sign up 2016. Why do i even bother LOL.

2017-06-22 18:28
While the post-major shuffle will probably create openings in North America, a lot of players in Fribergs position should dab their toe into calling. ... the demand far exceeds the supply in Best America. There aren't many teams in NA that are close to winning titles and need a player who fits Fribergs role.
2017-06-22 18:34
People who say shit about friberg, probably didnt saw him in 2k 13, 14 and even 15. So, you dont know shit and you cant say shit. Those who saw him and still say shit, are just retarded. Expexting that someone can be beast all the time, is retarded. As Richard Lewis said, Friberg was so good that the only way was to fall.

WTF. Why you are sayig -shroud you idiots? he is fucking support player. He always go first, tries to kill someone if he doesnt his team mates kilm them, because they know where are they. Support player must be the bottom fragger, he gives flashes for team. Like, watch fucking his demos, look at his crosshair, he is fucking machine, he flicks so fast and accurate, crosshair always on headshot level. One problem about shroud is, he is unlucky, just watch the demos. always caught trought the smoke or timing, or wallbanged that sucks.

2017-06-23 17:11
Honestly I can't comprehend why people suddenly start cheering for him to join one of the better NA teams. He doesn't deserve that, he was good back in the day but is absolute dogshit right now. He would drag Liquid, C9 or Optic down heavy. He's far from an intelligent stratcaller. He's just a mediocre or even below average entryfragger, which isn't somethinng the NA teams need right now. Only reason why teams would maybe wanna pick him up is because he has a large fanbase and brings in views, sponsors and merch sales. He should either join a team like Red Reserve in europe or something like splyce, misfits or complexity if he wants to go to NA. C9, Liquid or Optic are too good for him.

Basically friberg realized he is a bot and hes looking to make some ez dolla in NA just like an eu footballer like messi turns 38 and he becomes useless in the tier1 scene so he goes in qatar to play for an irrelevant team and get 100 million dolla / year doing nothing .

yep,that's the way it goes

thank mr friberg

I would say is better for him to retire and be part of NIP forever in a great position into organization and start working for the company while he do streaming etc.
