Golden loaned out to NiP for StarLadder Major
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.
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:
Faruk "pita" Pita (coach)
As @PlopskiCSGO is unable to attend the upcoming Berlin Major with us due to Valve rules, Cloud9 has agreed to lend us @goldenmajk as a temporary stand-in to complete the line-up in Berlin.— Ninjas in Pyjamas 🇸🇪 (@NiPGaming) June 25, 2019
Thank you @JackEtienne and @Cloud9 for the help.#GONINJAS #CSGO pic.twitter.com/sFAIGGBw99
