f0rest will join Dignitas, nawwk to replace him in Ninjas in Pyjamas

Rumors are coming to fruition as legendary Counter-Strike player Patrik “f0rest” Lindberg will be parting ways with his home of the last seven and a half years, Ninjas in Pyjamas, according to a report from 1pv.fr.

The Swedish player was previously tied to a move to Dignitas and now it seems the move is nearly completed. It was also reported that this was f0rest’s decision and that 1pv’s received information that NiP would have met several demands including less travel.

At the current time Adam “friberg” Friberg, Richard “Xizt” Landström, Christopher “GeT_RiGhT” Alesund, and f0rest are all being targeted to join the new squad alongside Håkon “hallzerk” Fjærl. This will be a reunion of the core four of the absolutely dominant NiP team that went on a 87-0 offline map record to open up CS:GO. The team’s dominance in the early days of CS:GO will remain in the history for a long time to come including their ESL One: Cologne 2014 Major win.

Dignitas CEO Michael “Prindi” Prindiville stated in early September that the organization was coming “back into CS:GO” and “building a dynasty.” It seems that the dynasty is an old one looking to be reborn.

NiP have chosen to recruit Tim “nawwk” Jonasson from GamerLegion to replace f0rest. He himself will be replaced by William “draken” Sundin on GL.

Expected NiP CS:GO roster:

Fredrik “REZ” Sterner
Jonas “Lekr0” Olofsson
Nicolas “Plopski” Gonzalez Zamora
Simon “twist” Eliasson
Tim “nawwk ” Jonasson

Expected Dignitas CS:GO roster:

Richard “Xizt” Landström
Adam “friberg” Friberg
Christopher “GeT_RiGhT” Alesund
Patrik “f0rest” Lindberg
Håkon “hallzerk” Fjærl
