According to an Oil Leaks insider, Ninjas in Pajamas and fnatic have agreed to trade device and Brollan. The source also reports that the fifth Fnatic player could be FASHR, currently playing for ECSTATIC, or Surreal from the Endpoint team.
As it became known to the source, the Swedish eSports organization is determined to get rid of device, which has not appeared on the server since mid-December. At the same time, Ninjas in Pajamas has already sent an official request to Fnatic to transfer Brollan in the amount of €600,000, but was denied with a demand to increase the offer to €750,000.
Recall that Brollan has been playing for Fnatic since October 2018. In just over three seasons, the 19-year-old Swedish esportsman helped the team win several big tournaments, including PLG Grand Slam 2018, DreamHack Masters Malmö 2019, ESL Pro League Season 11: Europe and DreamHack Open November 2021, and also made it to the TOP-20 twice the best players at the end of the year.
In turn, device moved to Ninjas in Pajamas from Astralis last spring. However, at the end of the season, the Danish sniper wished to put his career on pause, citing burnout and mental health problems. Since then, device has not appeared on the server while the team has been running phzy.
In addition, the insider claims that Ninjas in Pajamas will remove es3tag from the starting lineup in order to return to the Swedish lineup. The Dane's place will be taken by phzy, who has been replacing the star sniper for the past few months.
The current roster of Ninjas in Pajamas is as follows:
- phzy (stand-in).
- djL (trainer).
- device (inactive).
