[VOD] Recapping NIP's year, Major performance, and roster changes on HLTV Confirmed with THREAT

The experienced coach will take part in the third show in a week.

In 2021, NIP won their first notable event in four years and signed one of the biggest stars of Counter-Strike, but to many fans and pundits, it seems like the Swedish organization had an underwhelming year.

In order to hear about utilizing academy players, the addition of Nicolai "⁠device⁠" Reedtz, and better understand NIP's performance in Stockholm, we have invited Björn "⁠THREAT⁠" Pers to take part in HLTV Confirmed on Friday, 20:00 .

Were NIP overhyped, or did they underperform at the Major?

The show will also touch on some of the recent news, such as G2 parting ways with their coach, the chatter about NAVI Junior star Ilya "⁠m0NESY⁠" Osipov, and more.

The upcoming BLAST Premier Fall Finals will be another topic of discussion, as THREAT and his team are one of the squads looking to do damage and potentially stand in Natus Vincere's way to yet another title.

Ok, just skip it? You act as if people don’t need to make money. Notice how HLTV don’t ask for donations? I wonder where they get their money from…

HLTV is and never was marketed towards 15 year olds. Of cours are there going to be people under 18 att every site you go to, and they cant check everyone's ID to police it. If you are mad then be mad at the kids channels that are actually getting kids to waste their money.

Prof, ask Threat if it might have been the pressure or the map choice in general that was the main reason their T-side was so lackluster. Because I feel like their T-side is mainly on Hampus making the play and he never got activated on inferno like he usualy does on maps like mirage. Anyway keep up the good work, can't wait for tonights show :)

not really a good year tbh
