NIP sign k0nfig in place of hampus
NIP have announced via their official Twitter account the signing of Danish player Kristian "k0nfig" Wienecke.
k0nfig joins in place of Hampus "hampus" Poser. Earlier, the Swede temporarily stepped away from the Ninjas' roster, and now it has been revealed that he entered inactivity due to personal circumstances at least until the beginning of the second half of 2023.
Wienecke has been without a team since the fall, when he parted ways with Astralis. After leaving the Danish club, he was recovering from a broken leg and stood in for Heroic at BLAST Premier World Final 2022.
NIP's first tournament with k0nfig will be IEM Katowice 2023, scheduled to be held on February 1-12. The team will finish the currently ongoing BLAST Premier Spring Groups 2023 with Max "maxster" Jansson from Young Ninjas.
NIP's current lineup is:
Fredrik "REZ" Sterner
Ludvig "Brollan" Brolin
Aleksi "Aleksib" Virolainen
Daniil "headtr1ck" Valitov
Kristian "k0nfig" Wienecke
Daniel "djL" Narancic (coach)
