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.
Line-up for Fata's stack
