According to Dexerto and 1pv.fr, Nicolai "⁠device⁠" Reedtz might be out for more time. Insiders report that device hasn’t dealt with his health issues yet. Danish sniper went inactive just before the semifinal of IEM Winter 2021 and didn’t attend Blast Premier Global Final 2021. Love "⁠phzy⁠" Smidebrant from Young Ninjas was standing in and showed a decent level of skill helping NIP to reach the final of IEM Winter 2021.

However, according to insiders, NIP are looking for alternative stand-ins. The main option is Jack "⁠Jackinho⁠" Ström, who is currently a free agent and might fill the empty spot. But it is far from confirmation as negotiations haven’t ended yet.

NIP commented on the situation, reporting that device was “still recuperating”. Also, the organization said that phzy would take the spot in the main roster, while Jackinho would be playing for Young Ninjas during his absence.
