A day after Christopher ‘GeT_RiGhT’ Alesund bid farewell to Ninjas in Pyjamas, the Swedish organization has announced the addition of Simon ‘twist’ Eliasson to its roster.

The 24-year-old AWPer and Rifler had been inactive for a month after being benched by Fnatic, but seems to have found a new home with NiP as part of their ‘new phase’. He will be stepping in to fill a huge void left after the departure of GeT_RiGhT and has a huge responsibility on his shoulders.

Along with the addition of twist, NiP also pointed towards an expansion of its coaching staff, information on which will be made available in the coming weeks.

NiP will be playing the upcoming DreamHack Masters Malmo 2019 with a new roster and a coaching staff. Let’s see if these changes have a positive effect on the Swedish side or if they will walk away empty-handed.

With this transfer, the NiP line-up is as follows,

  • Patrik ‘f0rest’ Lindberg

  • Fredrik ‘REZ’ Sterner

  • Jonas ‘Lekr0’ Olofsson

  • Nicolas ‘Plopski’ Gonzalez Zamora

  • Simon ‘twist’ Eliasson

  • Faruk ‘pita’ Pita [coach]
