As we head into the next era of this game that we love, we have re-evaluated how to run our teams at the highest tier. With ever-growing ambitions among players, teams and organizers comes an ever-increasing complexity in managing all aspects of team performance. We are currently fielding three rosters in different parts of the ecosystem -- the demand for a holistic CS performance model covering practice, scouting, mental health and logistics won't be going down. The need for dedicated resources will keep growing.
Therefore, we've chosen the route of appointing a GM -- a general manager, or grandmaster if you prefer -- of the NIP CS division. To NIP history buffs, one name should pop up immediately: THREAT. Björn has been with us in one way or another, in various positions and configurations, since 2016. He's certainly been in the scene for as long as most can remember, and we're thrilled to announce that we're putting him in charge of moving us into CS2.
