NIP confirm Brollan signing

A month after it was first reported to be in the works, NIP complete the blockbuster signing of the former fnatic star.

NIP have announced the signing of Ludvig "⁠Brollan⁠" Brolin on a transfer from fnatic, confirming a long-rumored change that was reported to be in the works by HLTV.org in late February after the Swedish organization lined up a hefty bid in the area of €600,000 for the 19-year-old star.

The newest addition joins NIP amidst their campaign in ESL Pro League Season 15, in which the Swedes have advanced to the playoffs from first place in Group A. Brollan is however not expected to be able to join the team in the bracket stage due to the transfer regulations in place for the tournament (teams aren't allowed to change the roster they had submitted outside of emergency situations).

NIP bolster their firepower with a two-time top 20 player

Brollan will then take his place in the active roster in time for NIP's preparations for the upcoming Major cycle, which will begin with the Regional Major Ranking tournaments in Bucharest, Romania, next month. The Swedish-majority side have been placed in the B group on the European side of things, taking place on April 21-24 and offering eight Major spots in the Swiss stage.

The organization hasn't revealed what roster will be used in the Major cycle, but it is expected that one of Nicolas "⁠Plopski⁠" Gonzalez Zamora or Love "⁠phzy⁠" Smidebrant will take a step back.

"We’ve been looking at Brollan for years now — every serious team has," NIP COO Jonas Gundersen said in a statement. "In my mind it hasn’t been a question of whether he would join, but when, and I think he’s chosen a fantastic time."

"I’m excited to take the next step in my career with NIP," Brollan added. "I go way back with some of the players and I really feel like it’s time to lift some trophies together."

The 19-year-old reunites with Hampus "⁠hampus⁠" Poser and Plopski under the new banner after he spent nearly a year playing alongside the former in GODSENT and Red Reserve and briefly with the latter early on in his career in late 2017.

He comes as the third high-profile signing for NIP in a span of the last 12 months, following Nicolai "⁠device⁠" Reedtz's and Patrick "⁠es3tag⁠" Hansen's additions in April and November, respectively. In that time, the team took on various forms and went through several other changes as it utilized members of the Young Ninjas academy team. First it was Erik "⁠ztr⁠" Gustafsson who got the call-up, then Linus "⁠LNZ⁠" Holtäng, and in the past three months phzy has been standing in after device took medical leave due to mental health issues.

With the future roster yet to be cleared up, NIP currently have:

Sweden Fredrik "⁠REZ⁠" Sterner
Sweden Hampus "⁠hampus⁠" Poser
Sweden Nicolas "⁠Plopski⁠" Gonzalez Zamora
Denmark Patrick "⁠es3tag⁠" Hansen
Sweden Love "⁠phzy⁠" Smidebrant
Sweden Ludvig "⁠Brollan⁠" Brolin

Sweden Daniel "⁠djL⁠" Narancic (coach)

Denmark Nicolai "⁠device⁠" Reedtz (medical leave)

different roles tho and Plopski doesn't fit the support role at all as we have seen before es3tag joined. But let's see, maybe they will finally change up their system since hampus and brollan have a massive role overlap as well and they manage to keep Plopski instead of es3tag, who has been very underwhelming so far.

What exactly will be Brollans role? I never supported the argument of “roles”. I mean yeah, start out the round with specific tasks for each player but that immediately changes once the bullets start flying. Roles last all of 30 seconds

I've seen plenty of people say they would prefer es3tag to get kicked, instead of Plopski. Here's a few reasons why that's a stupid opinion: 1. NiP have desperately needed a solid support player since dev1ce joined. Before es3tag joined, NiP put this responsibility on academy IGL's and Plopski. It worked horribly. Plopski can't play in supportive roles (as we saw in 2021), and academy IGL's with zero T1 experience are obviously gonna falter. 2. If es3tag were to get kicked, NiP would once again have to put support responsibilities onto Plopski (and/or Brollan), and they would be back in the same mess they had in 2021. 3. People still think es3tag is a liability in comms, however from what we've heard from hampus in ESL Pro League, it seems es3tag has improved his swedish comms massively, to the point where it isn't an issue at all. He's also able to help hampus with calling in various situations (from lurk positions, or coordinating a site), unlike Plopski, or random academy players. (I know ztr supposedly helped calling on Nuke and Overpass for a brief period, which is bizarre) 4. The roles would fit perfectly if Brollan replaced Plopski, whereas if Brollan replaces any other player, NiP have a very tough puzzle to piece together. That would be a shame, since the team finally looks balanced. 5. NiP just spent a whole bunch of money buying es3tag. Imo, it seems like most of the es3tag hate comes from the fact he's danish, and people would rather have a full swedish lineup. I get that, but as long as the comms stay swedish, and there's a majority of swedes on the lineup, I'm relatively content. If they ever go majority danish, or full international, that would be complete blasphemy and I'd resign as a NiP supporter.

1. Not since device joined. ztr was their 1st support player they needed a better one. ever since ztr got removed yes they have been struggling to get that support role filled, plopski couldnt do it, LNZ puzzle mix didnt solve it etc Apart from that you are totally correct. +1

+1 they spent a lot of money on Dev1ce, no way they're getting rid of him yet, es3tag is probably in the same boat. REZ and Hampus are playing well, which leaves Plopski on the chopping block.

But we are not talking about just anyone- we are talking about PLopski and es3tag, if one player is much better then it would be fair to keep the one who is better and just dont care about feelings - but in this case its not like that, and NIP want their players to feel like a family and have a good time cause that makes them more motivated and they will play better.

No it only suggests that the org will kick/bench/remove call it what you want, whoever THEY think is worst out of those two. Dont put words in my mouth pls. FYI, i like plopski and i think hes been stepping up lately. But Hey, the org doesnt give a fuck what you and me think. And not even what Brollan thinks. I mean they kicked both xizt, friberg and gtr. Dont think forest was too happy about that. So who are they gonna keep happy? Device or Brollan?

NiP are building a squad to win championships, not keep plopski and brollans friendship alive. And if I was brollan and had a chance to sign for nip who are still showing a lot of promise with roster instability and arguably the most acclaimed awper over the lifespan of csgo, why would you stay on fnatic that just killed their roster when it was finally getting success, and krimz is looking more and more likely to join old fnatic teammates for their cash grab lineup. So he can stay on a dead team or replace a friend and have a chance to be great. If plopski is a good friend and a professional he will know it's not Brollans fault he gets cut

I mean if he doesn’t come back now I would think NIP are just going to sell him. It’s been 2 months, and dev1ce must realize that they need the reps with the major coming in 2 months and them having a real chance of being a dark horse. They got top 8 (barely tbf) with that old lineup that now is massively upgraded with the addition of Brollan instead of es3tag/LNZ. Ofc medical leave is medical leave, but no one can wait forever.

es3tag > plopski,but plopski is younger,so maybe one more chance for him

I'm not gonna say es3tag>plopski or plopski>es3tag because they play in different roles but if I have to choose I'll give a chance to Plopski for his good shape in the last tournaments.

brollan has rly moved up
2022-03-22 18:20

Wish this would happen. Krimz has some good years left. Don’t let him rot in fnatic. But then again this deal won’t happen. Unless they can get a trade happen maybe? But pricetag is really meh, never understood this signing at all. Nice dude but just not for tier 1.

I see a lot of people talking about how much NIP spending, Es3tag was for free, device was 800k and brollan 600k. Nip is pretty much owned by a major chinese company so they got plenty to spare.

Are they really? Because they did the whole "paint your team logo in ukraine colors"-thingie. Tbf everyone did that so it means nothing.
2022-03-22 23:21
It's not a news, we waited for the announcement and they ddint say who gonna be replaced🤦‍♂️
2022-03-22 21:44
I think this roster change adds little or no effect because of too much firepower.
