Reading the whole thing about how hated simple is by the top players i doubt he’ll be on a team like this again which is a shame tbh.
Looking at NiP since the map rotations have changed, it really hurt them more than any other team, with Ex6tenz teams being a close second as at DHW 2013(Obviously the map was removed 2015) NiP and VG were the 2 best Nuke teams and the old Train was one of NiPs top picks as they didnt play Valves Mirage.
Back when it was NiP vs VG/VP the main maps NiP players were
Nuke, Inferno, Cache, Train, D2. For the most part in that order.
Nuke being NiPs best map being removed then makes the other team gain a ban so depending on the matchup could be Inferno, then Train has been changed quite a lot, such that its not the same map, Train positions are different as is T main and the lack of a T heaven etc. So train isn’t 100% a map NiP will be good at so your left with picking your 3rd strongest map and them banning your 5th Strongest, which makes the maps you’re going to play not at all advantageous. For the most part this came in when Train was removed for Cbble/Opass as it was the map which was outright removed as was the 7th region dependent map like Season. Im in no part saying NiP’s individual performances are not to blame as Friberg and Forest are not even close to their 2013/14 performances and Them picking up Allu wasn’t as beneficial as they would of hoped for, and Fnatic picking up Olof and Krimz made them a better team player to player 10 fold.
