GeT_RiGhT steps down from NiP
The 29-year-old has been offered a position in the company but has yet to make a decision on his future as he hopes to still continue to play at a top level.
The Swedish veteran was named the player of the year in 2013 and 2014 and also made the top 20 list in 2015 (No.11) and 2016 (No.18). But since then he had constantly come under fire, with criticism mounting last year, when he averaged a 1.0 rating on LAN. In an interview with HLTV.org at the end of 2018, GeT_RiGhT admitted that the year had been rough for him and that his age was taking its toll.
In June, NiP announced that they were seeking "a suitable long-term replacement" for GeT_RiGhT, who would transition "to a different role within" the organisation. The StarLadder Major was supposed to be the Swedish veteran's final event, but the delay in finding a replacement saw him attend two more tournaments, BLAST Pro Series Moscow and the V4 Future Sports Festival.
His departure leaves NiP with a four-man roster just days before DreamHack Masters Malmö, which will kick off on October 1. The Swedish organisation are confident that they "have found the right person" to replace GeT_RiGhT, with an announcement due to be made "in the coming days".
NiP currently have:
