NIP COO on device’s return: "We're not putting any time on it"
NIP’s COO Jonas "calc" Gundersen spoke to Jaxon.gg about Nicolai "device" Reedtz, who has been out of action since December 2021 for medical reasons. According to the Manager, the Dane’s recovery is going well, and the club did not force him to return to the server by any specific time.
device is still out, focusing on his well-being. We're not putting any time on it because we care deeply about all our players' and employees' well-being – that's how performance is. Everything is going in the right direction, and we trust for him to come back into it in a healthy way.
Reedtz played his last matches in December last year at IEM Winter 2021. Right during the LAN event, he was replaced by Love "phzy" Smidebrant from Young Ninjas, who continues to play for the team until now.
The COO’s commentary was the first public statement of the club regarding device’s return. In January 2022, the media reported that the star AWPer would miss at least a few more months.
