Valorant is getting more attention with its increasing players. Bigger esports organizations are entering Valorant. Ninjas in Pyjamas are making several changes in their roster as well. The team has changed its head coach. NIP is very positive about the change and looks forward to doing more.

Ninjas in Pyjamas’ Roster

NIP is one of the first European major teams to finalize a roster for Valorant. The team snatched its whole Paladins squad to play Valorant. However, that roster didn’t work for too long. As the Swedish roster failed, Ninjas in Pyjamas welcomed Emir ‘rhyme’ Muminovic and Niels ‘luckeRRR’ Jasiek. Eventually, these players also left the teams, and NIP made a new roster again. Three new faces joined the team to fill up the void left by the gone players. The team now has a new head coach Jonas ‘eMIL’ Gundersen. 

Emil’s Response

After joining the team, eMIL made an official announcement. During the announcement, he said it has been his dream to join the Ninjas in Pyjamas. He is going to put his heart and soul in NIP to coach for Valorant. He also said that being a Swede, I am honored to represent my favorite squad in the professional Valorant scene.

The organization represents its happiness by posting best wishes to the new head coach. NIP said that eMIL is an exciting and young coach that can help the team reach the top levels of the game. He brings the creativity and tactical knowledge of the game that will help NIP conquer the biggest names in Valorant. 

Emil’s Background

Emil first started his professional career as a flex tank in Overwatch. He played as a flex tank for four years. In 2019, he signed with Angry Titans and moved towards the North American team Gladiators Legion. As the Overwatch 2019 season came to an end, the roster broke. 

After that, eMIL came back to Sweden. He started playing Valorant and switched to the amazing game. He then joined hands with his twin to coach a professional team of Valorant. The team FABRIKEN was very strong until it signed to an organization. In a very short time, the roster split up, and most of the team moved to FunPlus Phoenix, including his brother. 

Emil then joined Bonk. The team finished second at the LVL Valorant Clash 2. They beat one of the most famous teams of the time, Team Liquid. 

Emil’s debut tournament with NIP

Emil first joined the team to play at the BLAST Valorant Twitch Invitational. The team’s run at the tournament got very smooth. NIP moved ahead of a lot of teams and secured a lot of thrilling matches. Eventually, NIP lost to its former rival, Team Liquid. NIP got eliminated from the tournament after this loss. The tournament prize pool reached $50,000. However, NIP received its portion of the prize pool as well. 

The team is very positive about eMIL joining them. Let’s see what eMIL brings to NIP.
