As stated in our Plot twist: we recruit an AWP:er - CS:GO Roster Update, we have been looking to add extra manpower to the CS:GO coaching staff to broaden our playbook and make sure we are taking steps towards our goal of once again reaching the top of the world rankings.
We’re glad to finally be able to announce the return of Björn “THREAT” Pers, a familiar face for many of you long-time NiP supporters. When we last saw him he coached the team to a bunch of top tier finishes, before leaving to pursue a degree in the real world. Now that he’s back, starting November 1st, you can expect updates to our strategies and executes that will complement the insane firepower on our roster.
Glad to have you back, Björn!
“I’ve been long looking for another person to join me in the coaching team and therefore it feels great to finally be able to welcome THREAT. I remember facing him for the first time as a player back in 2008. Ever since we’ve been on different sides, until now.
THREAT and his mastermind will have a lot of responsibilities coming into this team. I believe it’s healthy for me and the team to have another person with both coaching and in-game leader experience entering the team. We will work closely together and evaluate as time comes on how to make this work in the best possible way. He will be working with me on distance but occasionally joining us for practices in our facilities in Stockholm.
At first he will be assisting me in structuring and tuning the team even more in situational plays and executes. He will also assist me and the players in preparations for our matches. Lastly, he will have the responsibility of helping our in-game leader to maximize his potential both as a player and in-game leader, something he has a lot of experience in.
A big welcome to one of the nicest guys in the business. Let’s do this!”
