After the recent move by NiP which discarded Xizt from the active roster, the 26-year-old said it was a “sad day.” The reference was to his long-run with the Swedish organization from the time the NiP CSGO was formed.
Sad day having to step down from @NiPGaming… definately wanna keep playing and looking forward to what happens next. Will post something more detailed another day. Thx for the support ❤️

Six great years
Richard ‘Xizt’ Landstrom has been a part of this active roster since 2012. The time goes back when the teams phased in from CS 1.6 to the new franchise in the year 2012. In the breathtaking run for NiP in the first few years of the game. They 87-0’ed rest of the world, where Xizt had a significant contribution.
If the Virtus.pro was glorified at a global level, Xizt’s contribution to NiP should have no less traction.
