Since the signing of our new Dota2 roster, the results have not been what we hoped them to be in any of the tournaments we attended and therefore we’re making the changes needed to turn this ship around.
Unfortunately, this means we have to bid farewell to Nico "Gunnar" Lopez, a player who’s been with us since September last year.
It has been great hosting you, Gunnar. Good luck with your next esports adventure.
We will be holding tryouts to find a suitable replacement for Gunnar while relocating the team to Europe to further improve our practice routines.
Peter “ppd” Dager, NiP.DotA 2 Team Captain, says:
"Gunnar signed up for this journey at the beginning of the season and was committed to us improving throughout the year. He was a great teammate and a fun person to be around."
"Moving forward for NiP.Dota2 we will be playing the next qualifier in the European region and will be holding tryouts with potential carry players to replace Gunnar. This might be confusing to our fans but our goals are to improve as a team. Attending minors and placing last is not a recipe for success. By relocating to Europe we will practice consistently against the best teams in EU & CIS and focus on gradual improvement rather than rushing all of our practice in a 1-week boot camp before a qualifier or LAN."
The team has several bootcamps planned to make sure they come into 2020 as prepared as possible. #GONINJAS
