friberg out of NiP — REZ joins

3
NiP Gaming have dropped a bomb on the scene — "the core four" are down to three as Adam "friberg" Friberg is replaced by Fredrik "REZ" Sterner from Epsilon.
After five years in the team, Adam "friberg" Friberg has left NiP Gaming's active roster, the team has announced. Friberg has been a part of the roster since the return of Ninjas in Pyjamas, which was by the time Counter-Strike: Global Offensive was launched in mid-2012. He was also very much a part of the legendary 87-0 streak that the team had at the beginning of the CS:GO era.

Besides dozens of trophies, friberg also has a major victory under his belt. At ESL One Cologne 2014, the tournament where the saying "third time's a charm" was very suitable, friberg was — according to many — the most valuable player for NiP Gaming as they finally broke the silver-curse of Valve Majors.

REZ steps in

To fill the gap from friberg, NiP Gaming have turned to youngster Fredrik "REZ" Sterner. The highly observed 19-year-old has been seen playing for Epsilon this past year, and was a recurring name when HLTV.org asked pro players who they thought was going to break out in 2017. It certainly looks to be that way now.

"I am extremely happy to have been given the opportunity to play for NiP. This is a dream for every player that is working their way into the top scene. Together with the NiP team, I strongly believe we’ll reach the top. Reuniting with draken is also something that I'm really looking forward to as he’s been a long time teammate and a close friend. I am stoked to continue my career together with him and the other guys at NiP", REZ tells NiP.gl.

In NiP Gaming, REZ will be playing with the core trio that remains as well as his old team mate. William "draken" Sundin, who played with REZ in Epsilon, was recruited by NiP Gaming earlier this year. If this is the recipe for success is for the future to show for the following squad.
