According to sources with knowledge of the negotiations, BLIX understands that Ninjas in Pyjamas are targeting swiftt as a replacement for Bernardo "Bemmz" Marta, ending his eight-month tenure with the Swedish organization.
The 15-year-old swiftt is one of the most sought after players in the Brazilian scene and was courted by a number of organizations active in the region. The "wonderkid" has shown great promise despite his young age, with NIP now being seen as the organization most likely to enlist his services.
While Bemmz's departure from NIP is seen as the most likely option, BLIX understands that the departure of João "Motta" Motta in place of Bemmz is also on the table.
NIP joined Rocket League in the beginning of the year and was able to qualify for two S-tier events: the RLCS Spring Split Major and the RLCS World Championship. In both events, the Ninjas were eliminated by Complexity early in the event.
Ninjas in Pyjamas roster currently consists of:
- Luiz "Aztromick" Gomes
- Bernardo "Bemmz" Marta
- João "Motta" Motta
- Pedro "fAsi" Rodrigues (Coach)
