Golden loaned out to NiP for StarLadder Major

NiP have added Maikil "Golden" Selim to their StarLadder Major lineup after agreeing on a temporary loan deal with Cloud9.

NiP had been a man short for the StarLadder Major after benching Dennis "dennis" Edman to make room for Nicolas "Plopski" Gonzalez Zamora, who is ineligible to play with the team at the Berlin event due to having qualified for the Europe Minor with Ancient.

Golden will begin playing with NiP after ESL One Cologne (July 2-7), where the team will use Plopski, who will then make his last stint with his former team at the Major's precursor and the Major itself should Ancient manage to qualify.

Golden is set to play the Major with NiP

NiP announced the news on the day of the roster lock for the Major, June 25, while Cloud9, who failed to qualify for the Americas Minor, have yet to reveal who will replace their former in-game leader.

The StarLadder Major, which will run from August 23-September 8, will see the Swedes begin the tournament in the New Legends Stage with the following lineup:

Sweden Patrik "f0rest" Lindberg
Sweden Christopher "GeT_RiGhT" Alesund
Sweden Jonas "Lekr0" Olofsson
Sweden Fredrik "REZ" Sterner
Sweden Maikil "Golden" Selim (on loan from Cloud9)

Bosnia and Herzegovina Faruk "pita" Pita (coach)

I never claimed he was a god, if you read what i wrote, i said he is really good at the game and a great leader and fragger. So dont claim i said something i didnt say. I think he is far better then most igls. Ofc there are other ones that are better then him. But he is without any doubt a top 10 igl and leader.
2019-06-26 11:49
at the moment does it atleast seem like he cant be a tier 1 player. he never was either
2019-06-26 14:03

flusha | 
Sweden D1SCO8 
Well anyone that plays in a broken team will look like a none tier 1 player. But he has the potential to be that if he gets som good players around him. Will Nip give him that in the future? Well maybe, but that is far away. Atleast he is in a better team now than before.

Maybe it's because Golden didn't qualify to the minor, while Plopski did

2019-06-25 16:21

Italy Fil0Nerd 
because golden was in the c9 roster of the previous major, plopski wasn't in any team at major
2019-06-25 16:22
The thing about golden is similar to lucas1 going to mibr. Both of them already competed in minor with a different team but since both were eliminated, by the rules, they can join another team. Plopski team Ancient have qualified so he became unable to join another team for the event.

If it's really a loan, there's several better players than him to play just one tournament if you didn't need an IGL. This is surely is a some kind of try out to see if he can fit once GTR leaves, but I didn't expect that NiP could let him go so soon.

I disagree cause Lekro is currently leading and he can’t be focus on his aim. I guess golden = lekro when he lead but he got better lead game reading maybe ( 2 brains ) And lekro is obviously > to get right Polpsky > Dennis So they will upgrade their game plan and little bit fire power. Plopski and nawk will be great to

2019-06-25 17:28
stopped reading at spoiler, "thanks" :) he's not worst, but yeah, he definitely isnt as stronk as he used to be some yrs ago. anyways i would be happy if he managed to get back in shape again, even if its unlikely to happen. whatever, time will tell.
2019-06-25 17:32
Get back? Hes played for 1,5 years and his whole time in fnatic he did not post a single +1 rating. Ok 1 time but it was Swedish wesg qualiefier against no org friend teams. So what shape do you mean??
2019-06-25 17:34
oh fuck, didnt read. i posted something like "gtr will surprise at the major and everyone will beg him to stay" somewhere and i thought it was this post... so nvm xD
2019-06-25 17:36
i love gtr! If lekro is not gonna igl anymore he should be the one being replaced not gtr. 99.9% of nip fans feel the same way.
2019-06-25 17:38
yeah, gtr is CSGOD and only needs to find his shape back. Maybe even by having a break for like 2 months to get his head clear and attack again. so sorry for shitpost, just didnt read my own comment you replied to :D

2019-06-25 17:29
It's temporary for now. But everyone knows Golden is on his way out of Cloud 9. Same goes for vice, and possibly RUSH. Only people really cemented in Cloud 9 right now is autimatic and CajunB because of contracts. Vice is on a temporary contract, Golden just got loaned out, and RUSH has very little time left and a low buyout. With Blast LA in 18 days and Golden most likely already back in EU getting ready for the majors with NIP, expect and announcement soon on a temporary or new fifth. And that will most likely be daps. C9's roster will most likely be: Autimatic RUSH CajunB daps TenZ
2019-06-26 03:55
Even if golden is already back in EU he's certainly not playing with nip yet. It wouldn't make sense for nip to play or practice with him until after Cologne "Golden will begin playing with NiP after ESL One Cologne (July 2-7)"

I dont get why people say -gtr. Gtr is one of the smartest cs players in the world and with experience like few others. Yea hes not hitting shots but if a IGL tells him to do this and that GTR is capable doing most of it. He have an understanding of the game that is world class for players around him.

Even the nip org themselves realize this now. Forest still has about a year left but gtr should retire with some dignity. Have you watched any of NiPs matches in the last 12 months?

Fifflaren wasn't exactly a great fragger but he did the job as igl and let the others play, lekr0 is NOT an igl. Hes just a really good player who can frag well while not igling but now that he is igling he is fairly inconsistent and makes some shoddy calls. Put him back into fragging and let someone focus on igl who is better suited. Decent move for me. All NiP need now is a ***** DEDICATED***** AWPer, just like EVERY SINGLE FUCKING TEAM OUT THERE, and maybe JUST MAYBBBBBBBBBBBE they will win some games against t3 opposition.

Golden = eternal average IGL. Nawwk would be a better tryout for now, they do need a proper IGL too but yea -dennis +nawwk would be a smarter try for this major though and after major focus on IGL replacement that takes GTR's spot and lekr0 goes back to fragging mode. Sweden is in a sad state for IGL and awpers right now, might be only flusha that is decent IGL option with good fragging ability as well but that would be a pretty temporary move as he doesn't look that motivated anymore and probably quits in matter of maximum 2-3 years.

So you really think thats because of Zeus? And not just fluke? If not, how come they dont win anything when they now have the best player in CS?

Golden loaned out to deadteam for major

At least Golden can play in major, rather than getting stuck in a shithole that is current c9

Biggest mistake was when Fnatic shipped away Golden and instead got Xizt... But yeah, Sweden got a real AWP and IGL problem. But not only Sweden got this problem. Look at Faze...4 super strong players and shit IGL´s. The move they made when getting rid of Karrigan before actually signing another good IGL was such a retarded move. Karrigan is still 100 times better than NEO and Adren...

What is wrong with all those people saying +Golden is a shit move? He was one of the best, if not the best, Swedish IGLs available, NiP needed an IGL as their firepower is quite strong if Lekr0, REZ and f0rest hit their shots and GTR holds 1.00 rating with his support role. They did it Golden may be weak aim-wise, but NiP needed some structure which they found in Golden Remember that Fnatic won WESG and Katowice18 against FaZe in a bo5 under Golden with worse aimers tham NiP have now and consider the fact that NiP got him for 1 event, at least for now (even tho I think it will be -GTR +Golden after Berlin). If they prepare for it in a right way, everything can happen Imo, a very good desicion from NiP given the circumstances

Judging from the comments here, Golden is VERY underrated
