Three of NiP's players reside in Europe, therefore they can still compete together without any issues arising from internet connections or different time zones. Universe on the other hand was not able to join the ongoing ESL One Los Angeles 2020 Online as he lives in the United States. Currently, Milan 'MiLAN' Kozomara takes over his position as stand-in.
Offlaner Rodrigo 'Lelis' Santos faces similar problems as he lives in Brazil. He currently gets subbed by Roman 'RAMZEs' Kushnarev during ESL One. So far, there is no information whether he stays permanently on the team or if he also has to leave.
Which player do you think could join NiP?
