Ninjas in Pyjamas has announced that has made some serious changes to its Valorant line-up. The team revealed that it has benched players Damien "HyP" Souville and Enzo "Fearoth" Mestari and has signed Saif "Sayf" Jibraeel. These change appears to have been made after it was acknowledged that the team has not been performing to a high standard.
Jonas Gundersen, Chief Operating Officer at NiP, said: "The competitive scene has progressed rapidly over the past months and we have to conclude that we've fallen further behind. Becoming a top tier contender on the global scene remains a priority for NiP and we've had to evaluate our position. Sometimes a group of five just doesn't come together to bring out the best of each other, and even though time played together can be a factor, we decided to continue in a different direction without HyP and Fearoth."
We wish HyP and Fearoth the best of luck in whatever comes next for them.
