NaToSaphiX: "Ready to relocate to NA; play rifle, AWP or IGL"

Following his exit from Sprout, Niels-Christian "NaToSaphiX" Sillassen put out a TwitLonger stating that he is open to playing in a different region and role if there is a right offer.

Playing as the main AWPer of the team, NaToSaphiX managed to reach the playoffs of the European Minor for the FACEIT Major earn a spot in the top30 of our rankings. The Dane was the best-rated player of the team a good portion of his stay in Sprout, currently boasting a 1.13 rating, but still finds himself teamless as the year comes to an end.

NaToSaphiX is open to making a return to in-game leading

After the roster change was announced, the 22-year-old put out a TwitLonger talking about his future as a professional player, highlighting that he is open to a role change, new regions, and more:

"I am ready to play as an AWPer, as I've done in Sprout, as a rifle player or as an IGL. I am considering offers from every region of the world, and I'm ready to relocate to NA or other regions if the right opportunity presents itself.

"In earlier stages of my career, I've acted as an IGL, rifle player and, most recently, an AWP player. In terms of roles, I'm open to playing whatever it takes to find the right team for me.

"I was always a pretty balanced AWP player, playing rifles often, especially on the T side of many maps. If offered, I would not be afraid to act as an IGL but since I have not played this particular role for over a year now, it would likely be necessary to have a tactical/analytical coach, who would be able to give me feedback for the first few months to ensure a quick and steady improvement.

"I would prefer to keep living in Denmark but I'm not afraid of moving to another country or region. "

-NaToSaphiX via TwitLonger

HLTV.org has learned that NaToSaphiX's contract with Sprout runs out on January 31st, but the German organization is willing to discuss selling the player before that date as well. Any teams interested in signing NaToSaphiX can contact him on Twitter or reach out to his agent Dennis Vang.

I’m Way worse than him. And he has a few aces up his sleve tbh. I think his a bit unterated, not much but he still deserves more credit. I’ve seen the players next in line to be pros on dust2hub, faceit and ESEA. The skill gap is huge mate....huge I tell ya

Oh, you don’t comprehend written English? Him saying I’ll take any role and play anywhere is not aspiration. I want to play for a top 3 team. I want to live and play in Denmark. I want to play as an awper for Mous. Those are aspirations. EDIT - You may want to scroll down and see others calling him out for being desperate, just in case you’re struggling still.
