draken to stand in for dennis in NiP

The Swedish organization NiP announced that Dennis "dennis" Edman would "take some time off", and that they would use William "draken" Sundin at upcoming tournaments.

In the official announcement, NiP revealed that dennis has been "experiencing some energy fatigue due to heavy scheduling over the last period of time", and with that in mind, and a busy schedule coming up, they decided to give him some time off.

draken will be wearing the NiP jersey again

dennis will "undergo further medical examination" in the upcoming days, but it is unknown how long NiP plan to keep him on the sidelines. In the meantime, they will be using their former member draken, who will assume the position of the primary AWPer in the team. draken has recently been playing alongside Hampus "hampus" Poser and Adil "ScreaM" Benrlitom in Uruguay, but has announced that he is now leaving the project.

NiP put forward the following statement about the move:

"Our player, Dennis “dennis” Edman, has been experiencing some energy fatigue due to heavy scheduling over the last period of time. In order to prevent this from escalating, we have mutually agreed for Dennis to take some time off to recover before returning to competitive play. The upcoming schedule for the Counter-Strike team is heavy, and we do not want to take any risks with regards to our players’ health. Dennis will undergo further medical examination in the upcoming days, and we are looking forward to seeing him return once he is ready to compete again.

"As Dennis recovers, we will be welcoming a familiar face to the Ninjas in Pyjamas active roster for the upcoming events. We are pleased to announce that we have found a good replacement in William “draken” Sundin, who will be taking on the AWP-role for the Ninjas in Pyjamas. During William’s last tenure with NiP, we saw a resurgence with us ultimately lifting the IEM Oakland trophy. We are looking forward to seeing our boys compete during the upcoming events, and will keep all our fans updated on the progress of Dennis."

NiP are now:

2019-03-11 11:16
he said that he only wishes Rez to have good games because he remained a good friend of him but he didnt want NiP to succeed at the same time because they kicked him

Disco and Twist proved to be absolute garbage, tbh. Draken even in the worst form looks favorable compared to other SWE awpers.
2019-03-11 11:35
Disco had a good run when he trialled in NIP he went off on Nuke. He is probably a bit trash atm, but when he did trial he was pretty decent.

Then your not looking hard enough because hes the only one they are talking about for some reason. Make him out to be the second coming of christ. Kind of how they were talking about dennis before he joined nip, while i was calling him good but overrated.

I kinda understand him if he trashtalked NiP back then. He was kicked during a time when NiP was actually improving and even winning events as the article says. Altough, I doubt he would even take the offer if the guys weren't friends afterwards (and NiP wouldn't consider it either obviously).

2019-03-11 13:14
That is exactly the opposite of what he said. While he was still benched on Fnatic, he trash talked them and said that he doesn't mind re-joining Nip if the opportunity arises but would never join fnatic again. He hates them, while doesn't have any bad blood for the NIp guys

Why would they take smooya over draken? He's just as toxic as draken, plus he doesn't speak Swedish (I know they all speak good English, but that's not the point). They've played with draken, so they don't need to worry too much about chemistry etc. Just cos someone is a better mechanical player, doesn't mean they are a better fit for a team.

They need an Awper and he is already familiar playing with forest, rez and gtr. The problem back then was the stuff about the role that didnt fit draken. Now they have Lekr0 as igl which could solve the problem they had in the past

He was insane in NiP, their best player when he played there
2019-03-11 11:16
He was killing nip , dont talk about kd. They were letting him get all the eco frags to farm some money. And he was missing all the easiest shots with awp(nip needs his awp frags not deagle,rifle frags)

I watched every single map that he played in NiP and he did everything for them. He was entryfragging, clutching, getting impact kills. He more than made up for the shots he missed and never deserved the kick.
2019-03-11 11:19
He looked like the best player but sorry i cant remember any impact stuff he has done , but i hope he will do this time

I watched every single one. You would agree with me if you saw all of them as well. There is no denying that he was carrying NiP.
2019-03-11 15:14
He was often pushing while playing CT, even with the AWP. According to interviews after his kick, it was explained that NIP wanted a Passive 'Hold the line' style awper while draken liked to play aggressive a lot.
2019-03-11 21:04
#506
 | 
Sweden Trkmag 
Yeah but imo CT aggro with AWP is really powerful and a vital part in a good CT side. As long as you don't do it all the time so that you don't become too predicable. So I think NiP would profit from having that aggressive presence.

True true, way too inconsistent last time. Here's hoping he's had some time to do some self searching. :o) probably not but oh well, anyone over Dennis in his current form is an upgrade.
2019-03-11 11:20
He is gonna do better then dennis this is for sure, and also other players like gtr or others would get some better roles,its also gonna boost them imo

Xizt was the reason they were bad, not draken
2019-03-11 11:56
you guys are just scoreboard kids,you open scoreboard and say '' oof draken you beast '' actuall draken = gets all the eco frags,sometimes hits the hardest shots,misses all the easy shots. but i still hope he will perform well

never said draken was a beast. Just said xizt was one of the reasons why draken didn't work out in NiP nor fnatic. Draken plays well in all teams except teams with xizt.

He's been vocal about how he feels like shit because he's not playing good, which is (99%) the reason he stepped back. NiP's statement about 'heavy scheduling' is quite bullshit and rather laughable, due to the fact that they have only played one tournament since Blast Pro Lisbanon back in mid-Dec last year.

i'm tired of explaining to newcomers to you why flusha will not join nip. 1. Nip's coach Pita thinks flusha should be banned. he accused flusha of cheating. Obviously flusha will not join while he is their. 2. He said he will not play competitive cs, definitely not in nip. If he can play in nip than he could've stayed in C9.

He's got nice statistics tho, but there really must be reason why no team wants to keep/take him. Anyway he'll prolly bring much needed 'hunger' into this team, and we've seen in past how much of a boost new players give to forest. And ofc they were lacking a dedicated AWPer.

I disagree. I like how they got 0 dedicated AWPers and 4 2ndary AWPers. Draken is dislike because he is inconsistant, toxic and a mood player. I don't think he will stay in NiP for long. I expect them to bring in Nawwk if Dennis doedm't get back

Will they be better with or without Draken?
2019-03-11 12:47
The problem is if one of the top swedish teams comes calling the swedish players will leave instantly, just like what happened with draken. Same for the "frenchies". If G2 or Vitality come calling, Ex6 or ScreaM will leave without question. This team is doomed to fail because they have good enough players that cant get into the top team in their region at the moment but have no organisation willing to put money up, offer them contracts and sponsor them. Unless they get backing by a big org, there's nothing to tie these players down. Its the same with NoChance and frozen. They are all basically waiting around for the offers to come.

If I had an org I think Ex6tenz would be one of the first free agents I would pick. Not because he is good but because he has a vision. ScreaM is one of the best aimers in the game and with some stern leadership he could become tier 1 player again. I was sceptical about adding Hampus as a support player but so far he has looked better than ever. HS is a bit like ScreaM but not as big name. He got the aim, he got the reaction time but not the position in and team play. But that is easy to Train through practice. If x6tance galaxy would pick them up HS would be replaced by Plopski and nawwk would finally have a possibility to carry a team to tier 1

Dude, calm down. That was the same case with Magisk. He was benched from North for that exact reason. Look what it did. He's now one the best players in the world and a back-to-back Major winner and a Major MVP award holder. draken can also change his attitude (which I believe he already has (not to mention I never considered him a twat anyway)).
2019-03-11 12:30
There are differences to be honest but that is one way to think of it. He hasn’t been putting anywhere near the level of work Magisk was though. Right now, Maikelele or nawwk would’ve been better choices for a stand-in on paper by a large amount, so people will be curious.
2019-03-11 12:34
#249

Pakistan d1ckweed 
draken is still more talented than either of those guys. nawwk is inexperienced. Maikelele has tons of experience but I believe draken is a star player, Maikelele is not. nawwk is a newcomer and has tons to learn. I also think that they made the move because they are all familiar with draken and won their last Big Event together with him. So it makes sense to churn out a few online (ECS) matches together with draken and get in tip-top shape for BLAST Pro Series and learn a few things from there. Then they'll definitely have a crack at the StarSeries which is just a week after the BLAST event.
2019-03-11 12:36
draken is less talented than both the mentioned individuals. Maikelele has been the star player in NoChance (Better team than Draken's where he wasn't even top fragging). Nawwk is extremely talented, many are saying it but he could be the next real up and coming Swedish thing. That logic is more reasonable, but regardless short and longterm Maikelele may be better, though I'll concede nawwk may not be good to pick up with their schedule at the moment.

Talking about Uruguay and NoChance does not make sense at all. It's a fact that draken has attended more top tier events over the course of 2017 and 2018 than Maikelele has. draken was just unlucky because Red Reserve's roster fell apart and hampus left. The team at Uruguay is just a European mix which never really stood a chance anyway. NoChance is at least a team that has been around for longer and has some structure.
2019-03-11 13:14
draken has attended more LANs than Maikelele sure... except he has an average 1.02 rating last year on LAN. Maikelele is a better and more consistent player. NoChance has been around not that much longer than drake has been out of Fnatic, and drake was only better than Maikelele for a short while just after he left Fnatic. NoChance is an EU Mix as well, stop using one thing to give excuses for one team then take away the other players value for the exact same thing it's pretty hypocritical?
2019-03-11 13:24

It’s Ex6TenZ’s first time playing in an English speaking roster. Also, Uruguay is a mix that’s been around for weeks only, and that too without ScreaM, who was out injured. Can’t see how NoChance are not in a better place than Uruguay. draken’s LAN rating might be 1.02, but Maikelele hasn’t even played top tier CS. Why? Because top teams never scouted him. Why, again? Because he’s never been good enough.
2019-03-11 13:47
Stop making excuses for Uruguay, they're a poor team anyways. NoChance are in a better place because they have the better players, a better leader. Just because draken comes from the worse team does not give him the advantage. Maikelele hasn't played Top CS as he hasn't been in a team to prove that, nowadays NoChance are probably going to be the next EU Mix team signed by an organization and he's already closing back in on Top Tier CS. Meanwhile draken? Constant LAN failure and shunned out of his top teams for attitude, play style, and personality issues. Maikelele > Draken on any team nowadays, the only team I'd put draken on over Maikelele is Ancient so he can play under prone and hopefully calm his tits because he isn't a god.
2019-03-11 13:51
"Maikelele hasn't played top CS as he hasn't been in a team to prove that" Well, if he does have the skills required for top tier CS why none of the top tier teams ever considered picking him up?
2019-03-11 15:29
Swedish player who historically had an attitude issue (In the past) and who wanted to stay with lower tier teams. He hasn't been in a team he can perform in for a long time, and now he's pretty dedicated to NoChance unless he gets a good offer.
2019-03-11 15:44
"He hasn't been in a team he can perform in for a long time" So how do you know he would be better than draken in tier 1 teams? By predicting future with voodoo?

Pakistan d1ckweed 
Who the fuck is making excuses for Uruguay? I'm saying that draken's performance there is irrelevant. If Maikelele was good enough, NiP would've chosen him. It's not like he hasn't played as a stand-in before. Despite all that, NiP going with draken is reason enough to believe that draken is better than Maikelele. You don't know any better than the guys running a fucking organization.
2019-03-11 15:41
It's more likely because 3/4 players know draken's play style already, and on such short notice likely with little practice he is safer.

I don't know what this team is doing, it's almost like some sort of disrespect when they announce these former teammates to stand-in, like maikelele and now draken like "yeah we dont want you anymore, but would you like to be our stand-in for a while?" and ofc because these players are in absolute no-mans land of swedish CS they obviously have to take the offer in hopes to either get re-added to the team or marketing themselves towards other teams like fnatic or international teams.

yea good thing for Draken. Back in spotlight and maybe some team notices him
2019-03-11 17:20
True
2019-03-11 19:06

Draken is garbage. RIP my expresses...

I think this is more of a new trial for Draken than about giving some time off to Dennis. Hopefully Draken has become a more calm and mature player and makes it work this time, just by playing at the same level he did before but not missing all those easy shots he will be a massive improvement over Dennis.
2019-03-11 17:31
Noooo! Draken sucks fucking balls!

all people saying dennis is getting kicked, he just got a kid he can almost never spend time with. pretty sure he just wants to spend some time with his family
