According to the Liquipedia portal, dev1ce may return to the Ninjas in Pajamas roster at IEM Dallas 2022. The 26-year-old Danish player is listed in the team's starting lineup, which may indicate the return of the sniper after six months of his absence.
dev1ce moved to Ninjas in Pajamas from Astralis last April. For the rest of the season, the 26-year-old Dane helped the team win BLAST Premier: Fall Groups 2021 and Intel Extreme Masters XVI - Fall: Europe, as well as get into the top three at Flashpoint Season 3 and Intel Extreme Masters XVI - Winter. However, in December, the sniper announced his departure from the team's starting lineup, citing psychological problems. Since that time, dev1ce has never been able to recover, forcing Ninjas in Pajamas to look for short-term solutions to the problem.
It is expected that the sniper will force Plopski out of the roster, whose place was already shaken after the purchase of Brollan. Recall that the 19-year-old Swedish player has been playing for Ninjas in Pajamas since June 2019.
IEM Dallas 2022 will take place from May 30 to June 5 at the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center in Dallas. Sixteen teams from all over the world will compete for a prize pool of $250,000, as well as ranking points in the ESL Pro Tour table.
The current IEM Dallas 2022 lineup is as follows: ENCE, FaZe Clan, FURIA, G2 Esports, Natus Vincere, Ninjas in Pajamas, Astralis, Heroic, Cloud9, Team Vitality, Looking For Org, Imperial Esports, Team Liquid and Complexity Gaming.
