Aleksib benched as hampus makes his return

For the ninth time in 26 months, Ninjas in Pyjamas has made a roster move.

Ninjas in Pyjamas have ended the speculations about the future of the roster with the announcement of Hampus "hampus" Poser's return to the lineup.

The 24-year-old Swede will take over the reins as the in-game leader for the team replacing Aleksi "Aleksib" Virolainen. The Finn joined the roster in September 2022 but will now be moved to the bench after just nine months on the team.
