Ninja in Pyjamas made a recent adjustment to their Counter-Strike: Global Offensive roster after a tough beginning to the year 2020. The agreement of hampus got confirmed by the organization, as he will take over the leadership responsibilities from Lekr0.
For the last few years, Lekr0 has always been a cornerstone of the Swedish CSGO circuit, switching back and forth among the team Fnatic and GODSENT. He got switched to Ninjas in Pyjamas once Fnatic started slipping. His time with the squad experienced conflicting results, placing notably among the top eight teams in the 2019 IEM Katowice Major, and underperforming in several other competitions.
Rough Start to the Year 2020 for NiP
NiP is consistently experiencing early knockouts since the start of the year 2020 from major events, including BLAST Premier: Spring 2020, IEM Katowice 2020, and ESL One Pro League Season 11. However, the team posted a decent fifth-place result at the ESL Road to Rio Europe event in recent times. At present, NiP appears set to contest against Team Vitality with their latest roster in DreamHack Masters Spring 2020.
High Expectation from the New Roster
The new addition to the team, Hampus “hampus” Poser, has yet to make an impression on the professional CSGO circuit but has been a well-known name beneath it for quite a while. In 2019, he was on Uruguay3 and reported excellent performance and obtained sponsorship from Squad GamerLegion.
The NiP team has enormous potential, and the fans have high hopes that a leadership change would help return the team to its former glory and even beyond.
