It seems as if there is big shuffle season brewing up in Sweden as per reports via 1pv.fr which point towards Patrik “f0rest” Lindberg’s rumoured move to Team Dignitas already being completed.
This has sparked a chain reaction as Ninjas in Pyjamas are now looking to sign Tim “nawwk” Jonasson from Team GamerLegion, who in turn will be signing the 24-year-old Swedish AWPer William “draken” Sundin.
Rumours of Dignitas stepping back into CS:GO has been doing the rounds since late November last year. As per initial speculations, the line-up consisted of Adam “friberg” Friberg, Richard “Xizt” Landstrom, Patrick “f0rest” Lindberg, and Hakon “hallzerk” Fjaerli, with the last slot being taken by Christopher “GeT_RiGhT” Alesund.
While it was a clear path for everyone to join the team, f0rest was the only one tied up to a big organization. With this report of his move to Dignitas being finalised, we will witness the reunion of 80% of the legendary NiP roster that went 87 - 0 from 2012 - 2013.
Nawwk was earlier rumoured to have been scouted by Fnatic, but the deal never took place as he continued to play for GamerLegion. Now once again 22-year-old is under the radar of Ninjas in Pyjamas, and if the reports come out to be true, we might see him play for a new Swedish side.
Meanwhile, Draken who has been out of action for some time now with his last stint coming with Team Ancient has stood-in temporarily for GamerLegion previously. He has the experience of playing in the big leagues and a permanent role in the teams is very much on the cards.
