NiP signs dev1ce on three years contract

- Advertisment -

Swedish esports and gaming powerhouse Ninjas in Pyjamas have announced the signing of Nicolai “dev1ce” Reedtz. The transfer is considered to be high profile and reportedly the biggest in recent times in the CSGO fraternity.

Nicolai’s first appearance in the NIP jersey will be the upcoming Flashpoint 3 RMR tournament. He is among the few players who have won a CSGO major four times. Nicolai was one of the founding members of the roster which eventually followed up to Astralis in 2016.

Nicolai “dev1ce” Reedtz’s statement on joining NiP

Leaving Astralis is tough, to say the least. The boys will always be like family to me, but this covid era has left me thinking a lot; where do I see myself when it all goes back to normal? I’ve lived in Sweden for some time now, speaking the language and I’m really hyped about this young and exciting NIP project. To join one of the most successful organizations, where so many legends have played, inspires me. Just see what LeBron James achieved with the Lakers for instance, and with the Major in Stockholm coming up; to bring that home to Sweden is my number one goal.”

The NIP project has been gaining momentum lately with a piece by piece falling into place. Coming off a solid run through ESL Pro League, NIP is hungry and ready to win trophies. It’s not unlike the early years of dev1ce’s career where Nicolai and his crew of talented Danes kept getting close to the big wins.

They finally started getting all the way after investing heavily in the mental aspect of the game, which is exactly what NIP is doing with a performance team working full time with the team. Reedtz evaluates:

How NIP works with mental health was a huge factor in the decision. Everyone who has followed me through my career knows that I’ve experienced it all; from choking to winning. It’s true that winning the first tournament can light up the spark, and I’m confident that I can bring a lot of winning culture to this talented roster over time.
