Young Ninjas bid farewell to three members

The team are already in the process of finalizing replacement pieces.

NIP have announced changes to their Young Ninjas roster, revealing that Kalle "⁠Ro1f⁠" Johansson and Adrian "⁠7EMPORARY⁠" Mehrara will step down and that head coach Fredrik "⁠slap⁠" Junbrant will move on to "a new exciting project."

Ro1f was the team's tied second-longest tenured member alongside head coach slap, with both departing the lineup after just over a year. During that time, Ro1f averaged a 0.95 rating across a number of smaller cups and tournaments, as well as four seasons of the WePlay Academy League.

Ro1f departs the Young Ninjas roster after 13 months

Their best results came early on when Young Ninjas placed second and third, respectively, in the first and second seasons of the league, but they have since failed to achieve the same level of success.

The revamp of their roster in April did little to improve that trajectory as the team continued to struggle, with 15-year-old AWPer 7EMPORARY remaining in the red for all three of the events he played. The other two players who were added at the same time. Max "⁠maxster⁠" Jansson and Adam "⁠adamb⁠" Ångström, had better performances, and will remain on the roster as they look to rebuild in the off-season.

With slap's departure, Young Ninjas will also have to find a new leadership figure to head up their talent project. In a follow-up tweet, the organization stated that they are "in the process of finalizing contracts with the latest younglings to join the squad" and that further details would follow in the near future.

After the change, Young Ninjas will be left with:

Sweden Erik "⁠ztr⁠" Gustafsson
Sweden Adam "⁠adamb⁠" Ångström
Sweden Max "⁠maxster⁠" Jansson

when you got 10k hours and you are still too bad to play in academy, doesnt matter whether you are 15 or 35 years old. 99.9% chance you will never get close to tier 1 because of lacking talent
2022-07-04 01:47
15 replies
not 100% accurate cause having 10k hours as a 15y old means you probably played a lot of them as a 10/12/14y old, thus you probably never really undestood what you are doing. if you are 35 with 10k hours you are doomed though yes.

2022-07-04 08:44
Even if you did grind with a goal in mind, you most likely could not have the life experience to understand the whole matter of training with a goal in mind. Did you adjust your life so that you would have a maximal expectancy of results? Did you at least 5 days a week run a routine where you do aim training and tactical training? Smokes, flashes and the whole 9 miles? I really doubt it. If you did, I am amazed and also a bit disappointed in you, as I do not recognize you as a top tier player. There is a VAST difference in hours put in by someone who actually knows what he is doing or has a coach planning their training compared to someone who most likely is in their prime learning age but have no previous life experience to tell them why something works and why something that does not bring immediate results would benefit in a longer run. No idea how your body needs to be treated to get the maximum out of it in a moment and in the long run etc. There is so much you are not taking in accordance judging by your comment, that I suspect that you are still quite young.

Of course, you can have a objective but the difference with you and someone like for example monesy is that he is not alone correcting his mistakes and bettering his game. He has a organization around him to help him evolve. He has multiple professionals setting him short term and long term goals to achieve to become better at his trade. That and many other factors mean that even tho you can be a aimgod no problem, you can have game experience. But you will be at a comparison a casual scrub running vs. Usain Bolt on his prime in a 200m race. You are most likely well behind. Not saying this is 100% and the only way, I am saying that their tools to evolve are so much greater then yours that they're most likely already steps ahead.
