Fata and 33 leave to build their own stack – NiP are down to two players

posted by Brasozial,
Adrian 'Fata' Trinks and Neta '33' Shapira leave Ninjas in Pyjamas. Who will join Peter 'ppd' Dager in their stead? NiP definitely had a good DPC season, being the only team to win two Minors. Even their ranking position was a success: they've finished on eighth place right behind Fnatic and were one of the reasons why Europe was considered the toughest region in the world in 2018/19.

However, The International 2019 was a total disaster for Peter 'ppd' Dager's squad. They started weak into the group stage and weren't able to fight back. NiP didn't win a single series at TI9 and were eliminated as one of two teams in the group stage. A roster swap for the next season was inevitable.

Fata and 33 leave NiP

We already knew that Martin 'Saksa' Sazdov would be taking a break. NiP were down to four players, but more roster changes were still to come:

Adrian 'Fata' Trinks announced his new stack including his former offlane team-mate Neta '33' Shapira yesterday. With their departure NiP have only two players on their roster right now – Peter 'ppd' Dager and Marcus 'Ace' Hoelgaard.

We'll probably find out which three players will complete NiP's line-up in the upcoming week.

Meanwhile, it seems like Fata's team has too many core players: Nikolay 'Nikobaby' Nikolov played position 1 for Mineski at TI9, Fata is a mid laner, 33 played offlane for most of his career and Limmp isa mid player as well. Only Simon 'Handsken' Haag is a dedicated support player who used to switch between position 4 and 5.

If the order of Fata's tweet indicates the position each player is going to assume, Fata will switch to position 5 captaining his new team.
