Aleksib departs NIP; hampus returns to roster

Swedish organization NIP announced via their social media accounts changes in the starting five. As a result, Aleksi "Aleksib" Virolainen departed the roster, while Hampus "hampus" Poser returned from inactivity, taking his position.

Aleksib became NIP's IGL last September. Together with the team, the Finn reached the BLAST Premier Fall Final 2022 semi-finals, and also got a step away from advancing to the Paris Major 2023 playoffs.

In turn, Poser departed the NIP starting five in February. However, recently, the Swedish player announced his desire to return to the pro scene, as his agent, Sami Bessie, shared.

It was reported that hampus will return to the IGL role, which he gave to Virolainen in the fall of 2022. The next tournament for the team is BLAST Premier Fall Groups 2023, which will play out from July 13 to 23.

 NIP's current lineup is:

 Fredrik "⁠REZ⁠" Sterner
 Ludvig "⁠Brollan⁠" Brolin
 Daniil "⁠headtr1ck⁠" Valitov
 Kristian "⁠k0nfig⁠" Wienecke
 Hampus "hampus" Poser

 Daniel "⁠djL⁠" Narancic (coach)
