Dennis “dennis” Edman, who had been benched with GODSENT in November, finally found a home with NiP, where he will take over the role of IGL from one of the original Ninjas, Richard “Xizt” Landström.
News of the change come after a slow finish at the end of 2017 for the Swedes, when despite showing the NiP magic was alive by winning IEM Oakland, the team bombed out of BLAST Pro Series and the ESL Pro League Season 7 Finals. Most recently, the team came in 7-8th place at cs_summit 2 last weekend.
With this change, the team looks as follows:
Patrik “f0rest” Lindberg
Christopher “GeT_RiGhT” Alesund
Fredrik “REZ” Sterner
William “draken” Sundin
Dennis “dennis” Edman
Faruk “pita” Pita (coach)
