NIP announce alex signing
NIP have announced via their official website the addition of Alejandro "alex" Masanet to their roster. Spanish player was acquired from Movistar Riders and will take over as team's IGL.
NIP's previous in-game leader was Hampus "hampus" Poser, who departed the team at the end of October. The change of IGL is part of the Ninja's roster restructuring, which also saw Ludvig "Brollan" Brolin parting ways with the team, while Patrick "es3tag" Hansen was brought back from a long period of inactivity.
alex has led Movistar Riders since 2017 and during this time helped the Spanish club to win multiple national tournaments, ESL Challenger Melbourne 2023 and advance to the semi-finals of IEM Cologne 2022. According to rumors, David "dav1g" Granado Bermudo will fill the position vacated after his departure.
The updated NIP roster will debut on November 9. The Ninjas will travel to China to participate in CS Asia Championships 2023, which they will kick off with a match against FaZe.
