Lekr0 takes over as NiP IGL

MIRAA
July 19th, 2018 00:00

Jonas "Lekr0" Olofsson is NiP's newest in-game leader, the Swedish organisation have confirmed.

The 25-year-old will take over the mantle from Dennis "dennis" Edman, who had been the team's IGL since his arrival, in February, when he replaced Richard "Xizt" Landström in the line-up.

The move follows NiP's dismal run at ESL One Cologne, where the team went out after just two matches, picking up a total of 11 rounds from three maps.

Lekr0 will be leading NiP, starting in London

It was only Lekr0's second event with the Ninjas following his move from fnatic, last month; the first one had been the CS:GO Asia Championship, where the Swedes had placed 5th-6th.

In an interview with Dot Esports, dennis noted that Lekr0 "is doing a really good job" and stressed that the team "have been playing pretty well."

Lekr0 will have a baptism of fire in the new role as he will be guiding the team at the Europe Minor, which will kick off on Thursday. The Swedish side will be eyeing a top-two placing in London as they look to attend their first Major in two years.

2018-07-19 10:40
-Rez +Golden Imo They need a proper IGL and both rez and get right have been hier least preforming players. One of them need to go and since forrest and getright are pals get right wont be removed and that only leaves rez

Why? Get_Right plays support now. His role is not to get kills. Do you even know anything? Problem with Faze is, that they have no real support player. Thats why they played better with cromen, because he was doing the support job. All teams need at least one support player. A team with just star players will not work. NiP has enough firepower. They just need to use it better.

What are you talking about? We have pronax, and another player who would be worth gold to NIP
2018-07-19 10:32
pronax doesnt work in the current meta. who knows maybe he would change his style. but imo right now golden would be the best choice by far because he has already proven himself to be a tier 1 igl , barely tho and frepower isnt a problem in nip because all their players are insane (inculding get right , he is always there when nip is winning something)

Pronax’s callin does not work in this CS. If he changes his style then he may be good the only decent swedish IGL is golden and he is standing in for C9. Players like flusha and dennis have done IGLing beefore but dont prefere it.

2018-07-19 00:04
I hope lekr0 knows how to bring back GeT_RiGhT in a topfragger position, he didn't play good under Dennis as an IGL

Not only gtr tho,the whole team was terrible,the calls that dennis made on previous officals were awful
2018-07-19 00:19
Im glad that they managed the 3-1 finish at the closed qualifier. And i feel like this is a now or never for GTR and f0rest, they will probably retire soon :(

IGLing online is surely easier, and don't forget he was usually used as an IGL or rifler/second AWP/Entry, he never had a comfortable role which he could play. I think NiP will now utilize him fully, because he's one of the best players from Sweden.
2018-07-19 00:40
his main role is entry which you just said he was doing probably with rez he is a bad igl and currently a massive onliner
2018-07-19 00:42
#139
 |

In g2 he was a rifler, 2nd AWPer and even support In fnatic he was an IGL, then a second AWP, then entry, like wtf In NiP he was an IGL since he joined, maybe now he will finally establish himself as an entry, because he has a lot of potential.
2018-07-19 00:44
that doesnt change the fact that rez is currently much better than him which was the original point
2018-07-19 00:47
#144

REZ actually had everything set for him to be better than Dennis the IGL and GetRight the lurker I mean if you'd put Dennis in Rez's role and make Rez IGL you'd see how big the difference would be. But RN Dennis is in kind of a small slumo, as he just can't find himself as an IGL. I hope they solved the problem by making lekr0 (and not GetRight) IGL.

That is the NiP method though. Step 1: Find a scapegoat, preferably someone who is "newer" to the core, or more a target of flame from the community (fifflaren, draken, now lekr0) Step 2: Force them into a position where they play solely for the team. They are playing from a position where they will not deliver, but they might make gtr or f0rest look better. Step 3: Get all the heat because they look like the weakest link. Step 4: Remove said player. It was one hell of a ride Lekr0, gl in the future.

This is just super confusing. This is the second IGL change within like 3 months. This sounds like Gambit all over game and it may not end well. On the other hand, Dennis is a good player but average IGL. So free him up may work well but then you may lose a good fragger like Lekro. What is the point of bringing him then?

It's called English and grammar. Maybe you should actually learn something at school instead of having ur head up your was or trying to suck off every guy you see
2018-07-19 17:01
Gla1ve was a fragger on Heroic before he took over IGL duties on Astralis. And maybe ChrisJ? But it took a really long time for him to get good at it. Still, I would agree that generally it almost never works because IGLs need to have leading mindsets from the start.
2018-07-19 12:30
Glaive and chrisj have always been hybrids more then just fraggers. I'm talking about pure fraggers changing to igl.. it destroys them.
2018-07-19 13:57
ChrisJ was an AWPer and Gla1ve, along with Valde, was the star player for Heroic. Your overall point is relatively true but you can't deny these examples.

They dont know what to do xd At the beginning NiP was one of that teams that didnt want to replace anyone. Knock off friberg was 2 years late. then they understand and started this series of "new players that can actually work" and they dont. allu, maikelele, pyth, draken, rez, dennis, lekr0 :S WHO THE FUCK IS THE MAIN AWPER NOW THEN?
2018-07-19 02:03
They don't have a main awper, dennis or REZ can both pick up the AWP, sometimes f0rest too.
2018-07-19 07:09
Just like VP and Gambit all over again just pass around the IGL role ruining firepower while you're at it. They really need to -GTR +Golden asap before Cloud9 might sign Golden if they want to have any hope of saving this roster or buy out Hampus from Red Reserve (dude is killing it in the ratings department while IGL rn)

WORST TIMING FFS for this change.. YOU DONT LEARN FROM YOUR MISTAKES (GTP IGL before major quals),, really you made players like f0rest GTR even XizT seem bad...
2018-07-19 02:43
this is retarded,if you want an igl,why not suck pronax's dick and beg of him to join since he probably is the best igl in csgo ever!? nip obviously needs a good igl plus firepower atm and this lekr0 move isn't adressing none of those issues. Let's see how much it will take for lekr0 to be kicked out,i d give him 6 months max.

So after holding back an entryfragger with igling, they're gonna do it again with lekro. They shouldnt had let xizt go. Or maybe get_right should take the role, since hes not an awesome fragger anymore, but is an extremely smart player. Let lekr0, dennis and rez do their thing, forest and mainly get_right should lead the team.
2018-07-19 08:09

Should've dropped GTR and picked up Golden. With fraggers like Dennis, Lekr0, F0rest and Rez, they could easily carry him. He consistently got Fnatic to playoffs and did just enough fragging wise to not be considered a complete bot. He makes good calls and kept a dysfunctional Fnatic a threat.

if you look at nips new roster pictures they are the only team with their arms open and get right has his hands behind his back. Does this mean everyone is open to new ideas and getright is stuck in his old ways? Dennis and f0rest have the largest arm to waste gaps and smiles (fully open to new ideas?), followed by the smaller arm to waste gaps of lekro and rez without smiles (slightly indecisive?). These slight differences torn with getrights aggressive stance and cold maniacal stare (is he holding an ump behind his back) time will tell i dont know what im talking about but i am a psychologist
