f0rest leaves NiP; nawwk joins the roster

NiP and Patrik "f0rest" Lindberg are parting ways after a seven and a half year partnership, making room for the Swedish organization to sign AWPer Tim "nawwk" Jonasson.

f0rest was the last remaining player of the legendary NiP lineup that went 87-0 and dominated the scene in the early days of CS:GO. During his time in NiP, the 31-year-old won 24 events, including the ESL One Cologne 2014 Major, and claimed eight MVP awards.

f0rest leaves NiP after over seven years in the organization

The veteran Swede will close a chapter in NiP history, putting an end to the slow disintegration of the team that won over a dozen trophies in 2012 and 2013, which started in 2014 with Robin "Fifflaren" Johansson’s retirement. The team then rotated their fifth before changing their older players at a rate of a player a year since 2017, when Adam "friberg" Friberg left, with Richard "Xizt" Landström and Christopher "GeT_RiGhT" Alesund following in 2018 and 2019.

Despite not having made a top 20 players of the year list since 2016—his fourth and last in CS:GO—, when he came in seventh place, f0rest is widely considered to be one of the best players still active from his generation and ended 2019 with a 1.09 LAN rating, the highest of any player on NiP. He is now expected to reunite with three of his former teammates under the Dignitas banner.

NiP have secured the services of nawwk to take over f0rest's place on the roster. The 22-year-old AWPer, who will be reunited with former teammate Nicolas "Plopski" Gonzalez Zamora, started to gain some notoriety in late 2018 with the x6tence Galaxy squad that made the DreamHack Open Winter semi-final that year before signing for GamerLegion in 2019, helping the team to a second-place finish at Moche XL and a semi-final run at WePlay! Forge of Masters Season 2 Finals.

"Patrik is a true icon of the game with a long list of accolades and has been instrumental in the legacy and brand of NiP for many years. That is something that we respect immensely and will never forget. After having been with the same team for so long and achieved so much, it’s a natural thing to want a change of scenery. We have of course chosen to honor that request and wish him the very best of luck on his next adventure.

"At the same time, it opens up an incredibly exciting opportunity to rethink the way we approach and execute our competitive structure and make long term decisions. Talent is peaking at a younger and younger age and for us to be able to invest in sustainable infrastructure and support around a lineup is absolutely fantastic. I couldn’t be more excited for 2020 and the years to come."

- Jonas Gundersen, NiP COO

"Joining NiP is an amazing feeling. It has been a dream ever since I started playing CS:GO and to be honest, it still feels quite unreal. I’ll be playing as a hybrid/second AWPer and although that’s a new challenge for me, I’m ready to put in the hard work and show what I’m capable of. With this line-up, I see great things happening in the near future."

- Tim "nawwk" Jonasson

Following f0rest's departure, NiP are now:

Sweden Fredrik "REZ" Sterner
Sweden Jonas "Lekr0" Olofsson
Sweden Simon "twist" Eliasson

starplayer in the context of this argument is a role, not a quality. I agree his impact doesnt justify the resources invested into him by the team but just calling him a baiter doesnt suffice as way of criticism.

Ok, it will be hard to watch nip without f0rest, but I hope he can step up on dignitas
2020-01-21 18:18
would've loved to see f0rest on this lineup instead of twist but sadly he chose the comfort of playing with friends over winning.

Although I'm excited to see what Dignitas can do, if anything, at their ages this still hurts so much. Such an important part of CS and the absolute goat of the game. Salute, Patrik. And thank you for those legendary moments and everlasting commitment to NiP!
2020-01-21 20:43
Good luck god:)

LEGEND! f0rest is literally the sole reason I started playing cs go. I was too little when my big brother played cs 1.6 with his friends, but f0rest was the only pro player I knew. It was crazy to see that he was actually still playing when I randomly tuned in a stream in 2013.
2020-01-21 21:30
Sad to see all the legends retiring these days. Respect to f0rest which carried NIP a bunch of times last year still. Dignitas is just a retirement home where they just remind themselves of the good ol' times anyway. Maybe they can win one DH event here and there with some luck. Dignitas will be a regular participant every DH event for sure, sponsors want them and they know they got no chances of win beyond those tournaments either so.

A very sad point in CS history, arguably the best CS player of all time and the many memories he brought me and countless other in CS 1.6 and CSGO both will never be forgotten. Sad to see, this is literally my childhood fading piece by piece. I'm officially getting old. Best of luck f0rest you legend!
