Former Ninjas in Pyjamas member Richard "Xizt" Landström has guaranteed that he intends to keep on playing competitively.
Richard "Xizt" Landström had been part of NiP since the organisation was relaunched, in August 2012, leading the team through most of those years, in which the team most notably won the ESL One Cologne 2014 Major, DreamHack Masters Malmö 2016 and back-to-back IEM Oakland events.
On Twitter, the Swedish veteran reacted to the news about his dismissal, admitting that this was "a sad day", and spoke of his desire to continue playing.
"Sad day having to step down from NiP...", he wrote. "I definitely want to keep playing, and I am looking forward to what will happen next.
"I will post something more detailed some other time. Thanks for the support."
