This marks the completion of the CSGO roster for NiP for the upcoming DreamHack Masters Malmö, which is all set to begin on October 1st. It’ll be interesting to see how the team performs given the fact that their performance was not upto the mark in the Starladder Berlin Major. NiP also released a statement stating that they will be expanding their coaching staff. They added “With the addition of twist and the upcoming coaching staff expansion (more info in the coming week), we are confident in our CS:GO team returning to glory as we aim to climb the rankings and reach the top once more. “
