NIP announce benching of es3tag, k0nfig, and headtr1ck

Another roster shuffle is on its way at Ninjas in Pyjamas after they missed the Copenhagen Major.

Three out of five players from the NIP roster were moved to the bench today, NIP announced in a press statement.

Alongside the benching of Kristian "k0nfig" Wienecke, Patrick "es3tag" Hansen, and Daniil "headtr1ck" Valitov, NIP has also chosen to shake up the coaching staff parting ways with coach Daniel "djL" Narancic and analyst Thomas "haste" Dyrensborg,

To fill the void left by these departures, NIP has promoted Max "maxster" Jansson, Leo "Silence" Ingvarsson, and Maoz "BluePho3nix" Paz from the Young Ninjas project. Additionally, Björn “THREAT” Pers joins as coach on a temporary basis.

In a letter to the fans, NIP looks ahead to a future, where the organization is “well-positioned to capitalize” on the opportunities to come.

- We expect the next few months to present many interesting opportunities and we are well-positioned to capitalize: we have a strong financial position, top-tier infrastructure and a ton more data on what makes a good CS2 player. Most importantly, though, we have an established philosophy of practicing and managing all the things that constitute vibes, and a player mindset that fits that philosophy. A few months from now, a new squad of Ninjas will rise from the ashes, and the whole team is working with a clarity of purpose that infuses us with hope for the future. Whether it all works out, we cannot predict — but we expect our fans to keep holding us to account. That is the purpose of this letter: for you all to be able to follow along as we try our damndest to make it back to the top, where we belong.
