es3tag to replace LNZ on NIP - Report
es3tag is close to finalizing a move to Ninjas in Pyjamas, according to a report by Dexerto. The Dane is reportedly set to replace Linus "LNZ" Holtäng, who had been playing with the team for the past six months after joining the main squad from the academy team, Young Ninjas.
The newest addition will reportedly debut already at the upcoming BLAST Premier Fall Final, taking place on November 24-28 in Copenhagen, for which Ninjas in Pyjamas were apparently allowed to make a last-minute roster change at the expense of playing the tournament as the lowest-seeded team.
The 25-year-old would be joining the Swedish side on a transfer from Complexity, where he has been sitting on the transfer list for the past two weeks after the squad around Benjamin "blameF" Bremer fell apart on the back of a series of disappointing results, including a failure to qualify for PGL Major Stockholm.
The brief stint with the Dallas-based organization marked a continuation of es3tag's misfortunes in the online era, during which he represented three different organizations — Astralis, Cloud9, and Complexity —, in each of which he only lasted a few months.
