New Ninjas in NiP
There has been lots of changes within NiP the last year. Yet again it is time for changes, will it make the team stronger and deliver the success they have been seeking?
Last time we saw NiP with changes, was in the start of 2007. But the changes didn't make the team perform as they wanted, and out went KF3 and Bullen. The two new ninjas were face and Tentpole who recently parted ways with Begrip. The team played with the lineup for a very long time, and even took the first place at spiXelania along with a qualifier spot for the Swedish WCG Finals. They joined ESWC this summer on a wildcard. They came all the way to the quarterfinals , where a strong playing PGS put an end to their winning streak. They was suppose to attend GameGune a few weeks after ESWC, but they didn't due to unknown reasons.
Since ESWC, the only action we have seen from NiP was the qualifier for the fourth season of NGL-One. But now it is time for changes within NiP. The rumors has had it for a long time, that NiP would undergo changes within short time, and here they are. Out will be going Jonathan "miniw" Wallenberg, he will be taking a break from the serious part of gaming and focus on other things in the real life. Along with miniw leaving the team, the front figure of NiP will be stepping back and be the team coach. Who else can it be than, the one and only, Emil "HeatoN" Christensen. He will be focusing on the development of NiP-Gaming and work close with the team.
The first new ninja joining NiP is Christopher "GeT_RiGhT" Alesund. His last team was Begrip, where he amazed many with this insane aim, and playing IQ. The last new ninja is yet to be announced, but NiP will be playing with a stand-in, for the upcoming Swedish WCG Finals. Helping them will be Max "azl" Höög. His previous team was also Begrip, where he went inactive after a few months back. He will also be helping the team on Thursday, versus NoA in the ClanBase EuroCup match.
The current lineup for NiP looks as follows:
Dennis "walle" Wallenberg
Kristoffer "Tentpole" Nordlund
Johan "face" Klasson
Christopher "GeT_RiGhT" Alesund
Max "azl" Höög (Stand-in)
Emil "HeatoN" Christensen (Coach)
