Christopher “GeT_RiGhT” Alesund has revealed that he has taken over as Ninjas in Pyjamas’ ingame leader.
The decision was made right after the Swedish team’s early exit at Gfinity Spring Masters 2, where a 1-2-1 record ranked them fourth in the group.
NiP will be hoping that the move will breathe new life into the roster, just one month after Joona “natu” Leppänen, a former professional player, was hired to coach the team.

This is not the first that that Christopher “GeT_RiGhT” Alesund leads the team inside the game, but the player admits that he still finds it hard to call the shots.
“We had a long discussion at Gfinity, where we went through a lot of stuff,” Alesund wrote on Facebook.
“We came th the conclusion that I was going to try out to be the caller… In the last few days, that is what I have done.
“It has been sort of a roller coaster for myself as I have to think about what everyone wants to do ingame and such. It has been kind of tough, if you ask me.
“But I have great team-mates that support me to the fullest. I do not feel weird with this new role anymore.
“Sure, we may go back to Richard being the main caller, or someone else, but, for the time being, I will continue in this role. I hope I will get the best support from our fans.”
NiP’s first offline event with Alesund as ingame leader will be DreamHack Summer, which will take place from on June 14-15.
The Swedish team are currently second in CEVO Professional, on a perfect 5-0 record, while in the ESL ESEA Pro League they lie in fourth place, with six victories from 11 matches.
