Ninjas in Pyjamas will soon tie down Mikail “Maikelele” Bill to a contract, the organisation’s CEO has revealed.
Mikail “Maikelele” Bill was brought in as a stand-in by NiP for DreamHack Winter following the retirement of longtime member Robin “Fifflaren” Johansson, who had been with the team since their creation.
At the Swedish major, NiP came just one step shy of winning the top prize of $100,000 as they fell short against LDLC in the grand final.
With the players currently taking a break – which forced the team to withdraw from the ESL Pro League -, NiP CEO Per Lilliefelth has now indicated that Bill is poised to sign a long-term deal with the organisation.
“We noticed pretty quickly that he was accepted by the team and the right man for the job, so there’s really nothing to think about,”Lilliefelth told aftonbladet.se.
“He will of course be signed as soon as possible. We’re going to sit down with him and get the details sorted out.
“I thought he was amazing and I like him in a lot of ways. He’s a great person who’s always fun-loving and positive. And he’s a real ambassador for the brand and a damn good CS:GO-player.”
NiP have two events coming up: MLG Aspen, in late January, and IOS Pantamera, at Inferno Online Stockholm, on February 7.
