NiP announce hampus signing

NiP have announced that they have secured the services of former GamerLegion member Hampus "⁠hampus⁠" Poser.

The 21-year-old will take over as NiP's new in-game leader, replacing Jonas "⁠Lekr0⁠" Olofsson, who has been moved to the bench and placed on the transfer list.

The players were informed on Tuesday afternoon of the decision, which was made by NiP's Chief Operating Officer (COO), Jonas Gundersen, together with head coach Björn "⁠THREAT⁠" Pers. The move, HLTV.org understands, was deemed necessary for the team to unlock the next stage of their development after some mixed results.

hampus is NiP's new in-game leader

The Swedish roster was unable to break into the top 10 in the world rankings in its four months of existence following the departure of star player Patrik "⁠f0rest⁠" Lindberg, the last remaining member of the iconic 87-0 and Major-winning team.

Lekr0 joined NiP in June 2018 as a replacement for William "⁠draken⁠" Sundin and took over as in-game leader just a month later following the team's dismal run at ESL One Cologne. He led the Ninjas to their first Major in two years and to playoff appearances at a series of international events, including the IEM Katowice Major and ESL One Cologne 2019.

"Success and trophies are a natural part of the Ninjas in Pyjamas legacy and it’s been a top priority of mine to build an esports setup that will allow us to consistently recruit, develop, and retain the highest caliber of talent," the NiP COO said in a statement.

"It’s in our DNA to be a team that contests for the big trophies, and we want to get back there. We have already seen a lot of promise with our new roster and it’s because of that we are now able to look further ahead and benchmark it versus our long term aspirations.

"The philosophy and ideologies I have around the future of esports performance, is something that I am unwilling to compromise on, and something that we constantly have to keep evolving in order to become the best, and that is why we have chosen to do a roster change. Lekr0 has done an excellent job in NiP, but sometimes a team needs to evolve in a different direction, causing a natural shift.

"Hampus is incredibly ambitious and hard-working, and has a firm and jovial attitude that will for sure enhance what we are already doing. He’s proven himself as an incredibly talented player and IGL, and we are confident that he will grab the opportunity to prove himself on the biggest stage under the NiP banner and keep up his progress."

hampus returns to action after spending two months on the sidelines following the disbandment of the GamerLegion squad, in March. He will be accompanied by some familiar faces in this new challenge, having played alongside Fredrik "⁠REZ⁠" Sterner (Epsilon), Simon "⁠twist⁠" Eliasson (GODSENT), and Tim "⁠nawwk⁠" Jonasson (GamerLegion) in the past.

"I am very excited to have been given this opportunity to play for NiP," hampus said. "It really is a dream come true. I'm also looking forward to reuniting with some insanely skilled old teammates and friends and can't wait to start working and do great things together."

This change will come at the cost of 20 percent of the 1200 RMR points that NiP won by finishing in fifth place in ESL One: Road to Rio. The Swedish team had already lost all points amassed during the StarLadder Major after retaining just two of the players who competed in Berlin, Lekr0 and REZ.

hampus will play his first official match for NiP in a week's time as the team will take part in DreamHack Masters Spring, facing Vitality, ENCE and Natus Vincere in the group stage. Before the end of the month, they will also compete in the BLAST Premier Spring Europe Showdown.

With this move, NiP now have:

Sweden Fredrik "⁠REZ⁠" Sterner
Sweden Nicolas "⁠Plopski⁠" Gonzalez Zamora
Sweden Simon "⁠twist⁠" Eliasson
Sweden Tim "⁠nawwk⁠" Jonasson
Sweden Hampus "⁠hampus⁠" Poser

Sweden Björn "⁠THREAT⁠" Pers (coach)

2020-05-19 17:11
Twist was who needed to go. REZ plays that Stewie entry frag role now, Plopski is a fucking aim god when hes feeling it and more often than not he atleast gives some sort of respectable performance, and nawwk is a strong awper and rifler. Lekr0 is really underrated as a supportive player, I'd say hes like a knockoff Xyp because he can clutch to a good degree, just not like Xyp, and can play similar roles well just not maybe to the standard set

Lekr0 is honestly one of the most underrated players in csgo rn, and he was finding his star form again. higher rated in r2r than everyone on NiP other than nawwk. twist was one of the lowest rated players that tournament.

Definitely. Plopski, REZ and nawwk have been solid for months, and I honestly think Lekr0 has been impressive. At least from what I've seen twist was the weakest link. But I assume they would rather swap IGLs than remove their main AWP on most maps.

Sweden wtf_men
I really don't understand it. Like they already have the best awper in Sweden on the team in nawwk, why do they need to keep twist? From what I have seen he is the weakest link as well
2020-05-19 17:58
because they will remove twist once Brollan becomes available in the near future. -twist +Brollan Swedish CS returns to the top of the game.

Why would brollan leave the better team lmao
2020-05-19 18:23
Because NiP is the next generation and fnatic is oldasfk and reaching the end of their run. Brollan is their best player. Hampus, Brollan's boy, just joined NiP. Don't underestimate the power of youth and friendship. Carry a bunch of old guys to compete with NiP or join NiP and be much better than said old guys?

2020-05-20 22:11
some what of a good move as terms of an IGL, but they lost a consistent fragger.
2020-05-19 17:02
Hampus is ok as IGL and he kills too, I think NiP will be better than RtR in few months,
2020-05-19 17:05
NiP performed well im RTR because of threats input during the match Hampus indeed is a better igl, but not a better fragger
2020-05-19 17:09
Yeah, that's the problem, I don't think NiP would get playoffs in RtR if it was LAN
2020-05-19 17:20
true, but it's only been a few months since they brought in nawwk, and before then there was a lot of instability in the roster. They should have given it a couple more months to see how far they could have gotten with the old roster. Also, why Lekr0? Surely -twist would have been a better move, as lekr0 has had better preformances, despite being IGL and twist being main AWP
2020-05-19 17:14
I agree. I think I had to be -twist +hampus and Lekr0 as rifler I think or switching between maps

Godsent should pick him up ye would be a good one -Krystal +Lekr0
2020-05-19 17:09
First person to go form godsent should be maikel imo, if he has a good game its not even that good, he is very inconsistent and mostly is just bad, for main AWP that is unacceptable, in krystals case it can be "overlooked" because he is IGL.
2020-05-19 17:15
Yes Maikelele isnt good either but just look at kRYSTAL stats and him playing... Even if he is IGL he should be kicked just like HUNDEN. Maybe they should let him coach?
2020-05-19 17:18
Well krystal has better maps than maikel which is absolutely not acceptable for AWP to be worse than IGL support/entry like no way, if godsent want to be top 5 both krystal and maikel are not part of the active roster i think but who are you going to get to igl? -krystal + lekr0 okay, but what option do you have for AWPers right now?
2020-05-19 17:20
Maikelele is clearly better than kRYSTAL but he is veeeery inconsistent and not good enough for top10 team. Potential awpers: - oskar, he was one of the best AWPers back in 2018 but he is not that good anymore. He is getting old but I think he could still compete in tier1 a year or two. I think his biggest problem is lack of motivation. He is also friend with STYKO and I think he could fit in this team - smooya, idk if he is joining that Mongolian team but he is potential tier1 AWPer - ottoNd, decent tier2 AWPer atleast. He is finnish and zehN is also. - hallzerk, looking good but still unexperienced Also good options: - Farlig, CRUC1AL, dennyslaw, torzsi, mhL
2020-05-19 17:34
Smooya and oskar are only guys that can t1 AWP i think, and no maikel is not better than krystal considering roles, maybe even but not better
2020-05-19 17:37
I think hallzerk and Farlig are good enough for tier1 team considering how young and unexperienced they are. Also dennyslaw is like the next CeRq or poizon.

+1 Farlig could be a good one
2020-05-19 18:03
Yes but you have to consider that they probably have contracts with orgs
2020-05-19 18:16
Yeah and thats why oskar would be perfect option but what do I know, maybe they dont want him? If they fail at Dreamhack maybe they are going to do changes?
2020-05-19 19:13
If godsent is gonna change its going to be after major qualifiers, they will want to know how many points they have and so on...
2020-05-19 19:17
If they want Lekr0 they should get him now imo. They would only lose 20% of points now right? And you get more points from next RtR events so bring Lekr0 after Dreamhack and it wont affect their major journey. So if they fail at Dreamhack they should get Lekr0 but keep Maikelele and after this major shit you can think about replacing him with better AWPer imo
2020-05-19 19:27
That would be nice
2020-05-19 17:17
apparently krystal is a really big part in keeping the team together so prolly wont happen
2020-05-19 17:17
I think this move + getting good awper to replace Maikelele could make them tier1. Core of STYKO, zehN and Maden is very strong and talented. Would like to see Lekr0 in GODSENT for sure and I think its just matter of time until it happens...
2020-05-19 17:20

2020-05-19 17:03
They will only lose points if they play another RMR qualifier with him no? Edit: my point being if they play another qualifier with lekr0 they wont lose points.

Well seems that they wont play with Lekro anymore?
2020-05-19 17:19
They benched him, and if other team will want to pick him up Nip will want buyout so they might play with him for qualifier to not lose points...

why would lekro wanna play tho
2020-05-19 17:28
How many times did mouz bench chris? Because its another chance to prove yourself, some players actually benefit from timeout, if Lekr0 has right mentality (i dont know him so i dont knwo if he has) he will come back to nip and became core player that will stay with them for long. TLDR because its another chance

but they literally dont want him, its not like chris
2020-05-19 17:31
if they didnt want him they would kick him not bench him
2020-05-19 17:37
“Benched and transfer listed” They want money from the buyout. Use brain. Kick/bench doesn’t matter. Money does.
2020-05-19 20:24
My bad overlooked transfer listed. He is fucked than.
2020-05-19 20:27
But still,look at Golden,he too was kicked now went back to Fnatic and was it bad move? Don't think so.
2020-05-20 00:08
Lekr0 is not that kind of IGL his calls arent bad bit lets be honest tactically i think golden>lekro
2020-05-20 00:52
But they replaced him with IGL already,honestly idk why would they even make this change now. I think that while they were getting better they shouldn't have gone and done change at all but that's my opinion.
2020-05-20 00:55
I agree with that this seems really unwise from nip side
2020-05-20 01:08
Like some people said maybe Faze might buy Lekr0 that's why they did that and i wouldn't blame them tbh. Lekr0 is 26 and might decline after year or so and if they get good money for him then so be it.
2020-05-20 02:47
Trading players like this is plain dumb wtf, i think NiP could easily have six man roster and with the way they are playing they could easily be legends in Major which would make lekr0 far more valueable. This way they just lose points.
2020-05-20 12:14
True,but if the org wants just money then that's their stuff. I hope Lekr0 won't leave like actually,hope he stays as a sixth man cause he was sick last month or so atleast fragging wise.

2020-05-19 17:05
"The players were informed on Tuesday afternoon of the decision, which was made by NiP's Chief Operating Officer (COO), Jonas Gundersen, together with head coach Björn "THREAT" Pers." Fucking backstabbers, he just carried them to 5th place in RTR.

Lekr0 was actually doing well considering that he was also calling for the team. Anyway, I see this team as having the potential of being a stable top 15 team, but not a contender to win anything important.
2020-05-19 17:06
LOL WTF
2020-05-19 17:06
It's about time hampus got a place on a top team although i don't think lekro deserves a kick D:
2020-05-19 17:06
+1 They should kick Twist or Rez instead. No need for Twist in roster when they have Nawwk. Plopski and Lekr0 are better rifler than Rez. Only explanation I see is that Lekr0 is gonna leave for another team.
2020-05-19 17:19
This! Sums it up really well

I uh Not really sure I agree with a roster change right now, especially at IGL considering recent results being a loss against Astralis, a 1-2 against FaZe decided by 2 overtime losses, and winning every T half against Vitality who later held their own against G2 Would rather bench Twist and just keep Lekr0 only not as an IGL a la Amanek if I had to bring on Hampus
2020-05-19 17:07

2020-05-19 17:11
W T F? Haha. Atleast keep Lekr0 as a normal player, he Would be the best in the team by far if not IGL’ing. REZ is the one underperforming a LOT together with twist

A terribly dumb move by NIP .Lekro was playing well as both an in game leader and as a fragger, especially now with the pistol upgrades a player like him is really valuable . U want an in game leader who cant frag, then take XIZT. NIP were doing really well in my opinion and had real potential to be a top 5 team in the coming few months . Retarded managment . RIP NIP indeed

What the actual fuck? Lekr0 might not be a great IGL but he's a great fragger. And I doubt that hampus is any better IGL, and for sure worse in the fragging department. I guess maybe it was Lekr0's choice, like when he left Fnatic. Maybe Lekr0 is going back to fnatic? -golden +lekr0? I hope not though, I hope fnatic learned from their mistakes of kicking golden.
2020-05-19 17:16

why are people suprised? from an igl perspective lekr0 is shit in r2r it was literaly threat calling and doing 90% of stuff and people saying lekr0 to faze are even more stupid from an igl perspective it makes no sens from a fragging way of looking at it its ok but faze could easly get a waaaay better fragger than lekr0

even if that was the case, Lekr0 is better individually than someone like twist, so why not kick twist instead?
2020-05-19 17:33

This is so fucking stupid, I loved the line-up with lekr0. Hampus who? You have alot to prove.
2020-05-19 17:22

2020-05-19 17:25
ok now it really looks like the T2 team
2020-05-19 17:25
Took way too long to sign hampus Though i am iffy on dropping lekro
2020-05-19 17:25
Shit my luck. Pick Gla1ve for fantasy team. He goes on sick leave. Replace him with Lekr0.... and this happens.... FML
2020-05-19 17:27
Don't pick anyone else mate. You're scaring teams
2020-05-19 17:39
It's okay, they automatically replaced Lekr0 with that new guy NiP signed!

2020-05-19 17:30
What the actual F? Lekr0 was almost their best player.
2020-05-19 17:30
I understand NiP wanting a change, and there was nobody better to pick up than hampus - but it sucks for Lekr0, who has actually been doing pretty well from what I've seen recently. -Xizt +Lekr0 and -friberg +dennis when?
2020-05-19 17:31
Dafuq is NIP doing
2020-05-19 17:31
Retard choice from nip Lekr0 was almost the top fragger of the team..
2020-05-19 17:31
Benching Lekr0 instead of twist OMEGALUL.
2020-05-19 17:32
but why wtf??? NiP have been doing pretty good lately and so has Lekr0, what are they thinking wtf
2020-05-19 17:32
This is the same bullshit they did with Draken "promise him 3 months" and got kicked as stand-in after 1 event. NIP Management is stupid. They lost close matches what is the issue when you play so close to top teams? Yeah kick a player and get a new one and start again. "makes absolutely" no sense

I actually don't like Rez and find him overrated af but Lekro is not a type of player or a fragger like Rez.I'm not saying Rez is better or Lekro is worse but Lekro had to go like in early 2019 because clearly he wasn't doing any good job.Yes old NIP was washed af but It's unbelievable that a team didn't had a single good map on their map pool.Remember picking nuke and losing 16-3,16-4,16-2? Pick train and lose 16-5,16-3? pick overpass or mirage and get only 5 round on ct side? That was NIP with Lekro.Now with proper IGLing and a freshmind someone will actually add maps to their map pool other than overpass
2020-05-20 10:02
You can’t blame Lekr0 for those results.

2020-05-19 18:28
You do know that Hampus is actually a REAL IGL right? Lekr0 isnt, neither is Allu/SuNny or NiKo.
2020-05-19 18:46
What makes you a "real igl"? I think IGL:ing NIP at big events for years makes you more of an "real igl" than igl:ing gamerlegion in teir 3-4?
2020-05-22 18:45
If we take an example: Hampus Xizt Golden Karrigan Are all real IGL:s and they have all IGL:d for years and years now. NiKo Lekr0 Allu SuNny Are not real IGL:s, they were just randomly put on that position because the IGL in their team either left, got benched or couldnt handle the IGL role.
2020-05-22 18:50
You havnt answered the question. What makes you a real IGL. IF you have IGL:d a top team for years, you are a real IGL. Its not like you get a degree in some kind of IGL colleage.
2020-05-25 12:24
Hampus looks like a different guy after his weight loss WOW.
2020-05-19 18:32
Best sign in 2020 trust me, hampus is one of the most underrated players in world, but clearly they benched the wrong one they should have benched twist hes the most overrated player in the world.
2020-05-19 18:32
lmao what?????? hope lekr0 finds a better team
2020-05-19 18:33
Lekr0 is a bot and not a real IGL. Hampus can frag and is also a REAL IGL. This is a good move from NIP.

2020-05-19 18:38
now nip is absolutely destroyed, what is this? kicking ur best player, and leader at the same time, it’s obviously awful move. i except if it was twist but lekro... omg i have no words, its big downgrade for nip surely
2020-05-19 18:38
Lekr0 has been doing amazingly well and gets kicked? lmao. If FaZe wants to upgrade their roster they should get Lekr0 asap

South Africa @FyreCS
Lekr0 was starting to look really good and the team started performing well. Unexpected move I think, but Hampus was a very good tier 2 IGL and can frag, so maybe it’s that. His familiarity with players could also be that but idk... If any move was made, I was thinking Twist if he can’t perform the secondary awp, but even he looked really good recently. Rez still scares me with how he’s on and off, but I can only hope it gets better for him
2020-05-19 18:38
Hampus was an abysmal T3 igl. Freddieb was litterally brought in because hampus was shit as their igl. Btw twist is main awp.. Also the only player i can stand on nip anymore.
2020-05-19 19:48
#715
 | 
South Africa @FyreCS
They said Twist was main awp, but then they said actually Nawwk has been picking it up more. Hampus stopped igling because he wanted to focus on individual gameplay more than igl. Than they brought in Hampus.
2020-05-23 01:12
Your wrong on both points. If you claim naawk is their main awper then you either do no watch nip games or you are not able to pick up on roles, postitions and guns etc while watching. If you actually watched or watched and took notice then you would se that twist is their t side awper 100% of the time and on ct side thet split it 50-50. Its also easily checked by looking at their weapon stats and if you do then you would se that twist has more then double the amount of awp kills the past month over nawwk, that would be pretty pathetic if he was their main awper wouldnt you say? Nawwk also has more then 3x times as many kills with the ak as he has with the awp, weird stats for an main awper no? As for hampus, the team wanted the change. Because they were unable to close out games and tournaments, they wanted another caller. Said so publicly.

South Africa @FyreCS
It was a literal HLTV interview where they said “actual, Nawkk has been picking up the Awp more”. I’m just saying what they said, not talking about what actually happens in game. It’s pretty obvious that Twist is t side awp XD
2020-05-25 20:29
is it that obvious? To me it is, to you? "I was thinking Twist if he can’t perform the secondary awp", your words. You mean in some interview when lekro said something along the lines of "nawwk has been picking it up more in practice recently"? Its all relative, probably means more compared to not at all. Because he sure as hell didnt mean that he was picking it up more than twist.

Okay, yeah. Whatever.. This statement litterally couldnt matter less.. Then he said In practice they tried nawwk as main awper 4 months ago. How small is your brain for you to think this is even relevant information and why are you bringing this up as somekind of smoking gun? Also you dumb fucking idiot i said "along the lines of", even a halfwit would understand that means i do not remember exactly what he said, and you are still correcting it becasue you are pathetic in trying to steer this away from your bullshit statements. If i cared enough about this irrelevant statement from 4 months ago i could have just linked that shit. But that pathetic action is saved for the boy who is litterally stealing oxygen from this planet. Kill yourself.

2020-05-19 18:40
I understand why they want hampus, but why the hell would you bench lekr0? You have 2 awpers in twist and nawwk with twist being a worse fragger than nawwk and lekr0. It makes no sense to get rid of a good fragger in lekr0 who has been filling in for IGL and keep a secondary awper in twist who is the definition of average.
2020-05-19 18:41
LOOOOL
2020-05-19 18:43
Very good addition. EDIT: Also, people saying Lekr0 did good? ur joking right? Hes been garbage for a while now.
2020-05-19 18:51
Yeah the scene is crawling with igls as skilled as lekro who puts up the kinds of numbers he does.. That was sarcasm btw. Also nip looks tactically good as another +. Their calls is gonna be SOO much better with a guy who only calls defaults and executes with no info, a guy who couldnt even fucking cut it as an igl in t3. They even had to bring in freddieb to call because hampus sucked.
2020-05-19 19:45
0/8. They brought in Freddieb 6 months after Hampus was added, and Freddieb left 2 months ago. So Hampus played and IGL:d for a total of 8 months in GamerLegion. Also in Red Reserve for 6 months and Epsilon Hype for a few months. So about, i would say 1½ years of IGLing. But nice try though.
2020-05-19 20:01
Did i say otherwise you dumb fucking idiot? I said HE WAS BROUGHT IN TO IGL FOR HAMPUS. twitter.com/freddiebcsgo/status/11902659.. This litterally happened because hampus wasnt cutting it.
2020-05-19 20:05
Maybe you should learn how to have a discussion without insulting or typing bad words. Bye

Maybe you shouldnt speak of things you know nothing about. Hampus low tier igl resume is filled with 0 accomplishments and 0 tactics. The only time hampus ever looked decent was under anothers leadership. You would know this if you actually watched the players you speak of. Had they brought in hampus as a lurker i would understand it, i defenitely wouldnt like it but i would understand it nontheless. I dont like using hltv phrases but, you are as newfag as could be. Signing up 2020-04 and talking like you've been following a low tier player for years..
2020-05-19 20:30
lol lekr0 was a pretty good player and IGL. expected from an org like NiP. seriously wtf. hampus isn't a bad player, but surely lekr0 is better than him. best of luck to lekr0.

2020-05-19 19:13
They want to bring in an igl who couldnt even call in t3 so they had to bring in freddieb to take over for him.. Honestly im 100% sure this is all about age, like hltv, nip management is horny for young.
2020-05-19 19:41
Such a stupid move, but could create opportunity for lekro to prove himself with international roster. Godsent or faze I guess.
2020-05-19 19:14
Yes and no. Stupid move YES. International roster fuck no. Hate those.. Want lekro in dignitas. Maybe nip could kick plopski too (since their roster moves makes no sense why not?) and make dignitas great.
2020-05-19 19:40
actually not bad lmao, mid 2019 nip but with a dedicated awper (hallzerk) instead of rez
2020-05-19 20:22
Wouldnt lekro,hallzerk,forest,plopski,gtr make you excited? Fk nip.

2020-05-19 19:16
imagine being NIP so retard move ever , let their best roster gone . wait for NIP tier 10 team
2020-05-19 19:17
weird move :O internal issues between players is only one justified reason to kick Lekr0 IMO. NIP's run in RTR was really good. I was hoping to see them in next tournament soon.
2020-05-19 19:18
probably toxic Twist
2020-05-19 19:30
lekro and twist are friends since way back, one reason why twist finally even joined this team.. And lekro is very nice and likable so an internal issue between players is highly doubtful. Nip management only horny for age and i guess lekro is "old" now (HAHA!)
2020-05-19 19:38

2020-05-19 19:28
niko lekro cold and rain deadly dgl team :D
2020-05-19 19:21
this roster move makes no sense... Rez has been terrible for months but kick Lekr0 who has been one of their better players
2020-05-19 19:23
Lekr0 is a very skilled player. Maybe he has an offer or something, otherwise i can't explain this move. They can't really believe they will perform the same with hampus. Not saying they did great with Lekr0 but i don't know how to feel about this....
2020-05-19 19:26
Lekr0 to Dignitas
2020-05-19 19:27
What a terrible fucking shop. Is that get right's body?
2020-05-19 19:29
Are you fucking kidding me?!!1?!!?! Is this a joke?! To think hampus would be better as igl for this team is laughable. Cant stand the majority of this current nip lineup, an 8 year fan says goodbye and fuck you.

2020-05-19 19:46
Shitty for nip but you as a FaZe fan will celebrate when he joins them after the major
2020-05-19 22:14
Well he is mostly likely replace olof, who is the reason I am faze fan in the first place soooo... yeah there goes my celebration
2020-05-20 01:46
Rip NiP ... Thought this line up gonna win something big but nvm hahahahha
2020-05-19 19:46
I dont understand this shit, why Lekr0? such insane player, look at the form he had this past 2 months, if we look at the 'weak spots' Twist is the first 1 in the chopping block, after that is REZ - Lekr0. I feel this is unfair but i hope hampus proves me wrong and goes bananas or atleast brings in more consistent results

not a free agent so will cost wayy more
2020-05-21 00:14
So Lekr0 is a free agent?? Nice brain
2020-05-21 00:22
on transfer list. they want him gone and will be much more open to price offers than a player currently on the active roster (not to mention being one of the most important players)
2020-05-21 00:23
WTF makes no sense, lekr0 doing an amazing job... just remove twist instead what the fuck
2020-05-19 20:27
rip nip. nice way to ruin a new growing roster

Haven't watched all of Nips games, but seemed like Rez was a weaker link lately. Anywayz, gl to him in Nip

Really shocked to see -Lekro. He seemed pretty consistent in terms of fragging.
2020-05-19 21:33
So as Lekr0 has been benched and I bought him to my roster, why is it not possible to fill in any player who havent played so far (and is affordable) and instead be forced to stick with hampus?

2020-05-19 22:14
lekr0 might've been signed by another team or something, otherwise this roster change makes no sense
2020-05-19 22:22
Yeah possibly, weird roster move indeed.
2020-05-20 02:05
Was enjoying watching the team develop, and as the CEO had said he wanted to give the roster time to develop I was looking forward to a top 10 team that would be allowed to progress. Feel that they shouldn't have cut up the roster that has been going toe to toe with some top tier teams recently. Unless there is some internal friction I'm unsure as to why they'd do this
2020-05-19 22:24
imagine benching Lekr0 over bot twist lmaoo seriously though I feel bad for Lekr0, such a promising player in GODSENT and NiP just totally ruined him, also NiP look good and they still change players? good luck to hampus though, he's a good player and IGL
2020-05-19 22:25
Lekr0 didn’t even want to igl, he’s obviously a fragger. Imagine him playing freely. Did Fnatic pay threat to do this? What ze fak?

After the 87-0 era comes to an end NIP finally looked like they may be back in bussines. They looked solid on RTR, i know that they somehow manage to lose a lot of OT, but let's be real, no one expected such a performance for NIP. What NIP CEO though? yeah, sure, let's change our IGL, what could go wrong? and probably NIP gonna be a again a tier 2-3 team for the rest of the year. Do you remember the era when 4 nip cores struggle to find the 5th and they have been unable to do so, pyth, maikelele, allu, etc... let's hope that's not gonna happen again. After all i feel sorry for Lekr0, imagine beeing fired after taking your team to the next level... and the strange part is that he also perfomed better as a player then some of his teammates... Now i finally understand why NIP never find their old form back, hopefully one day NIP gonna be TOP again.
2020-05-19 23:02
I would also have benched twist and put lekro as support. Anyway Hampus will be perfect as IGL here! Love the signing!

2020-05-20 00:49
Pretty sure Lekr0 either requested it or found another team, it doesn’t Seem likely that a player of his quality wouldn’t want a better team
2020-05-20 01:03
Yep, I hope so
2020-05-20 11:06
WTF?! I don't understand. Lekr0 improved a lot as a IGL, finally got on the top level plus he has a huge fragging potential. It was often lekr0 who carried NiP or at least he almost always had positive numbers. I really had faith in this NiP lineup, they could be at least top 10 team for sure, maybe even top 5 by time. So what NiP do? Bench him Fucks this, i don't understand man..
2020-05-20 02:06
Dennis was one of the last team members from NiP that didn't approve Lekr0 calling style. He said many times that NiP needed a "proper IGL"
2020-05-20 03:41
It was calculated
2020-05-20 07:18
But who got kicked first? Im not saying its not true but, Dennis really has fallen off and should never discredit his teammates, thats probably why he got kicked

Wish it didn't happen but I can get why. Lekro was doing great lately but this was when THREAT was basically their igl since the latest valve ruling. Hampus frags well while being a full-time igl. Did well against good teams on lan. Think it was 2018 when people were basically begging NiP to get him for the igl role. Hope he does well. Also, hope whoever takes lekro doesn't make him igl again. He deserves better.

Defiantly lekro should not of been removed as a player just as igl. He is underrated. But oke next move -twist +add the star player from dignitas and swtch nawwk to the awp role. You could also make a case for dennis but I dont blieve in him. Meikelele might even be a better move then dennis but again In think the new nip roster should be swedish young talent.

Threat is a CS genius and if he thinks Hampus is the right choice, then follow and be happy. Lekro so great then you should be happy that he is leaving SHITTY NiP. good day.
