NiP have had an incredibly rough VALORANT journey. They initially swapped their Paladins roster over to the game, but due to some players being in different regions of the world and a general lack of success, they decided to start over with the signing of luckeRRR, Emir “rhyme” Muminovic, and three members of HypHypHyp. When this roster also failed to find success, more changes were made, with Sayf and Egor “chiwawa” Stepanyuk being brought in. But with NiP failing to qualify for First Strike, things were again in turmoil, and the team has decided to make another round of swaps to see if they can make something work.
luckeRRR played the Jett/Operator role for the team, while Sayf, in the short while he’s been with them, has taken up a fragging role on Phoenix and Raze. luckeRRR currently boasts 210 ACS and 1.07 KD, while Sayf’s stats look even better at 234 ACS and 1.21 KD.
While the roster is not completed, former HSDIRR player Jady will be joining the organization. HSDIRR have been a surprise story in the region as of late, with good finishes even helping them reach the top 10 of THESPIKE.GG’s European Rankings at one point. Jady has played many different roles for the team – for quite some time, he was their Sova player, but recently has switched to a fragging spot playing Jett and Reyna. He has put up stats of 234 ACS and 1.36 KD over his recorded matches.
Will this finally be the changes that make NiP challenge for the top in Europe? Or are they destined for another round of swaps?
