WESA to probe into NiP allegations

The World Esports Association (WESA) has announced that it is conducting an independent investigation into the claims put forward by former NiP players and staff members against the organisation and current CEO Hicham Chahine.

The investigation has been launched by Mr. Ian Smith, a sports lawyer and Commissioner of the Esports Integrity Coalition (ESIC), and will be concluded by the end of the month, after which a statement outlining his findings will be issued.

The news follows a series of scathing accusations made by Robin "Fifflaren" Johansson in a lengthy interview with Richard Lewis. The 31-year-old, who was part of the NiP roster that dominated the CS:GO scene during the early days and that would go on to win the ESL One Cologne 2014 Major, claimed that the organisation withheld prize money from the players and included unfair clauses in the contracts, including one that allowed them to release team members at any time.

The investigation follows claims made by Fifflaren last month

His allegations were backed up by former teammates Richard "Xizt" Landström and Adam "friberg" Friberg - with some ex-staff members then chiming in to share some horror stories from their own time in the organisation.

NiP CEO Hicham Chahine issued a statement claiming that "all outstanding financial obligations" towards Fifflaren had been settled on "September 20 2016", adding that the new management - which allegedly took over in June 2016 - had been hard at work to "put lingering issues from the past right".

However, such claims were slammed by Fifflaren, who released messages from 2016 showing that Mr. Chahine had ignored him when he asked for help to pay his taxes. He also leaked internal documents from 2014 and 2015 that seem to contradict Mr. Chahine's version that he had no involvement in the day-to-day operations before June 2016.

More recently, Fifflaren turned his attention to Counter-Strike legend and former NiP CEO Emil "HeatoN" Christensen. In a series of tweets, he accused HeatoN of lying in court, using the team's prize money to pay for his lawyer and hiring his then-girlfriend to work for the organisation and offering her a salary higher than any of the players. Fifflaren also released two emails showing that HeatoN was attempting to get out of paying taxes and considering withholding the players' sticker money.

Last weekend, HeatoN dismissed those claims as "untrue accusations" and promised to release his side of the story soon, with "papers from the Swedish court to back it up".

In a statement issued this morning, NiP revealed that they "have resolved" nine of the ten cases dating back to 2014 of people reaching out to the organisation with claims about being mistreated, and are "working on finalizing the last case we have on hand."

"We will still keep all our channels open, for anyone that feels they have been wronged throughout the history of Ninjas in Pyjamas, to reach out," the Swedish organisation added.

"We welcome your outreach and want to engage in a productive dialogue to resolve any outstanding issues. We want to take this opportunity to sincerely apologize to former players, employees and volunteers who have felt mistreated, and will be developing better internal processes and work methodology going forward for a better NIP.

"When we joined WESA along with our fellow teams, we signed a Code of Conduct and compliance framework that we take very seriously. We welcome WESA’s investigation and will work with them to ensure it is as thorough as possible, including providing access to records, documents and individuals as needed. As per WESA procedures, this investigation will be held independently and the findings will be made public at its conclusion."

Created in May 2016 to regulate the competitive scene, WESA currently has 13 members, with NiP being one of the founding organisations. Mr. Chahine is currently part of the federation's executive board, which was expanded to six representatives in January to allow for an improved representation of the WESA members around the globe.

Mr. Smith asked anyone willing to provide relevant information regarding these allegations against NiP to contact him at ian@esic.gg.

Update: This story has been updated with NiP's statement on the allegations against the organisation and WESA's ongoing investigation.

They for sure signed a non-disclosure agreement and cannot say anything internal about the organization until their contract is over, and maybe even after that. At least that's what most companies around the world do. And when there is some shit going on, they offer you golden parachute so you sign even more restrictive NDA.
2019-08-21 13:26
Slamming the organisation he is contracted under? Surley he will wait untill he leave NIP. Rumors say GTR leaving NIP is forced and not voluntarily. I bet NIP will think twice now since GTR surley have a lot info about what has been going on in the organisation.
2019-08-21 15:31
GTR is way to loyal towards HeatoN even if he made all these things Fifflaren said/claim tbh. Whould suprise me if he actually involves himself in any way

Probably has a non-disparagement clause in its contract, so he doesn't want the org to sue him like FaZe sued TFue
2019-08-21 18:07
In Sweden laws are different. Suing someone does not bring much money. The damage of someone like GTR spilling all he knows would be much more costly than what they would evetually get from suing him for conytact breach.

True, but I guess there is also a moral reason to it, and that is that no matter what the org did in the past, they are still allowing him to put food on the table today, and until they are no longer obligated to do that, he will respect his contract until it ends. That's when there is absolutely nothing holding him back.

If they are tier 2, why are they on a Major, Pro league, blast pro series, ECS season 8, dreamhack Malmo, v4 future sports. 26 trophies. Top 11 is not that bad considering they haven't been playing much and they kept doing roster changes. I promise you they will move up

Fifflaren has said he doesn't really care about the scene as much anymore, even when asked to do gigs as a commentator and what not. I felt his reasoning was strange at the time, that he'd rather give young talent a shot and that he doesn't enjoy it, but in light of what we've learned it makes a lot of sense now. Point is he doesn't have to beg for this shit, he's voluntarily distanced himself for a while and my guess is it's because of bullshit like this. It's fucking important you God damned sperg. This shit ruins the integrity of something we all enjoy, and it's not just about people fucking each other's girlfriends, it's about livelihood. Those fuckers worked for something and got mistreated, how is that even comparable to, say, a player getting cut or coldzera trying to have a tripple bypass at 35? Like, I hope you go through something similar to this later in life. It makes you super fucking bitter. I've been through smaller, yet relatively equal, circumstances and it's just not how a person should be treated and we often aren't at liberty to plead our case. This goes beyond CS. It's applicable to a lot of real life situations.
2019-08-22 16:36
I think a lot of people care, maybe not the kids that shitpost in these forums or you in particular. But older readers or younger players who have interest or ties to the pro semipro scene and the industry people really care about these kind of news, its super important to shed light on unresolved matters like these so that the CSGO scene can rid itself of the unprofessionalism that has plagued us for so many years. Punish and set a precedent ,maybe scare dodgy orgs from handling matters in shady ways in the future. I along with many others find it very interesting, one of the most interesting news in a long time actually.

There's a difference between doing something you need to do even if you don't want to, and doing something you don't need to do, especially if you don't want to. One you need to do, and so you're forced to do it, and one you don't have to do, so you don't have to do it. Reading news you don't care about falls into the "not a need" category.

I didnt know Heaton is so stupid that court papers prove shit. Court knows what they are told, in cases like this where there is little proof ( word to word ) Court knows basically nothing.

Maybe he meant the papers of case where he got community service because of negligence.

I can't draw conclusions from all of their statements... If HeatoN actually can back it up with legal stuffs (which he got community for being negligent with taxes, there is some weird line drawn across all these scandals. Niklas said that there was a financial problem on early 2012-2013 NiP, and he didn't make that much money, so is the players got caught on the same situation as well? That they actually didn't earn that much money and all the prize money went to traveling expenses? He also mentioned even McNiP didn't pay them because it's not official and rather a community voting of burger naming. So -money. Then Niklas left after finishing the accounting, and took a break to Thailand with his family. And the emergency meeting happened, and HeatoN probably said something like, "Hey, Niklas left NiP and went to Thailand." I'm just guessing. Big possibility that this is a money mismanagement.

>NIP didn't earn much >Niklas health wasn't good >Took legit break to Thailand >Heaton saw his chance to empty funds from bank >Heaton used Niklas' break to Thailand as scapegoat >Heaton stole money and then blamed Niklas ?????? >Profit

Plausible, but unproven. I think Robert Heimler(?) also have something to say about this, he was mentioned several times, wanting to buy NiP stakes but unable to due to an agreement that NiP-Gaming will share 50% by any means in 2 years to the players.

I never liked nip in the 1st place i played lol semi pro before i started playing cs go and even then i dissliked the org i just had a bad feeling about them seems the feeling was right they are a scummy scummy org, feel bad for legends gtr and forest but they probably have the benefits unlike other players

F0rest and GTR getting lower paid than Heatons girlfriend? Hardly. Why would two of the best players at the time stay in NIP with that salary? GTR and F0rest must have been payed under the table. Heaton probably have them by the balls. They won't talk.

Because there were no better paying options? By esports standards back then, the players did have a decent salary, had they been given sticker money and prize money. Fifflaren talked about this when he was on RL, in case you have not seen it already.
2019-08-21 15:39
GTR is an owner of NiP with his father. I’m pretty sure he was getting bonuses or dividend as well as a salary

Why would they pay any attention to this? Folks who still see them as a top team seem to just ignore that they have only won like 5 events total since that Major in 2014 (even though they get invited to absolutely everything) and the last of those was almost 2 years ago.

I think it's more like a U.N. situation, but for C.S. The U.S. helped found the U.N., like NiP did with WESA, so it would be like if the U.N. was investigating the U.S. breaching some kind of international contract or something like that.

HeatoN is a fraud and NiP is a scummy organisation that hides behind marketed Swedish innocence. Hope HeatoN goes to jail or at least has to pay back what he stole from players
