Patrik “f0rest” Lindberg and Ninjas In Pyjamas have officially parted ways thus clearing the air which was previously filled with some potential Swedish Shuffle rumours. Sniper Tim “nawwk” Jonasson will be filling in the boots for f0rest as the later and the Swedish organization decided to end their seven and a half year stint.
The 31-year-old veteran now looks forward to reuniting with three of his ex-teammates under the Dignitas banner. Looking at the past f0rest was the last man standing from the unassailable NiP Lineup who did dominate the Counter-Strike Scene with an 87-0 win Streak on Lan. Having won a plethora of events which does include the Major, the Swede has also claimed 9 MVPs during his tenure at NiP with some first-place finishes at memorable events comprising of ESL One Cologne 2014 (Major), Dreamhack Summer 2014, IEM Oakland 2016 and 2017 as well.
NiP did have some roster moves with Robin “Fifflaren” Johansson retiring after the Major, the scene too did see Adam “friberg” Friberg depart the roster alongside Christopher “GeT_RiGhT” Alesund who parted ways with the Swedish side earlier in 2019 hence making way for Nicolas “Plopski” Gonzalez to keep his guns blazing after serving for Team Ancient and x6tence Galaxy. The CSGO scene will now witness Tim “nawwk” Jonasson reuniting with Plopski on the server as the later duo helped x6tence Galaxy to reach the Semi-Finals of DreamHack Open Winter 2018 held in Jönköping, Sweden where ENCE were crowned as Champions.
As mentioned above, f0rest is now rumoured to reunite with his three ex-teammates consisting of Adam “friberg” Friberg, Richard “Xizt” Landstrom, Christopher “GeT_RiGhT” Alesund with Håkon “hallzerk” Fjærl at Dignitas.
With the latest Roster update from NiP, the Swedish Organization now fields:
- Tim “nawwk” Jonasson
- Fredrik “REZ” Sterner
- Simon “twist” Eliasson
- Nicolas “Plopski” Gonzalez Zamora
- Jonas “Lekr0” Olofsson
