After almost a year being the head coach for Ninjas in Pyjamas, Faruk “pita” Pita departs the Swedes.
While pita was coaching Ninjas in Pyjamas, THREAT hadn't left the organization. Staying on as assistant coach, with pita in the position of head coach, NiP didn’t show any impressive results in 2019. Their highest placements at LAN events were 3rd place, at BLAST Pro Series Moscow and BLAST Pro Series Global Final. Plus a silver medal at BLAST Pro Series Copenhagen.
The spring and the fall of 2019 were pretty decent for NiP, but they have shown almost nothing from June to October, those months they were out of top-10 of HLTV ranking and failed the performance at StarLadder Berlin Major, with 15th-16th final placement.
Björn “THREAT” Pers, who was a head coach of NiP before pita, takes this role again.
