imageDie Gerüchte um einen Wechsel innerhalb des Ninjas in Pyjamas-Lineup haben sich nun bestätigt. Wie die schwedische Organisation auf ihrer Internetpräsenz mitteilte, wird sich William ‚draken‘ Sundin dem aktiven Lineup anschließen und Jacob ‚pyth‘ Mourujärvi ersetzen. Die Entscheidung wurde durch Coach Björn ‚threat‘ Pers auf Grund der vergangenen Ergebnisse getroffen. Mourujärvi wird das Team zum jetzigen Zeitpunkt jedoch (noch) nicht verlassen, sondern die Rolle des Ergänzungsspieler einnehmen.

Statement Björn ‚threat‘ Pers

During the last few months our results have been below our expectations and we have not been able to find good solutions. We have tried swapping roles but we are not able to find a good balance with the current lineup. The key thing we are missing is a dedicated AWPer and that’s why we’re happy to announce the recruitment of William „draken” Sundin. William has been on our radar for quite a while, and with him we believe all the players can play a role they are comfortable with. During 2016, we managed to win three titles and Jacob was a crucial part of those victories winning us many rounds thanks to his explosive playstyle. However, we cannot overlook that fact that his playing style does not fit the AWPing-role but rather roles that other players in the team are currently occupying.

Statement William ‚draken‘ Sundin

Getting picked up by Ninjas in Pyjamas is a dream come true for me. One year ago, I was competing on the FaceIT platform, where I qualified for the minor in Bucharest. I have since then been working hard on improving and believe I can have an in-game impact in NiP. Even though the team has struggled a bit lately, they are still one of the top teams in the world and I am humble to have been given this opportunity. I am looking forward to getting started and prove my spot on the team!
