- With the goal of creating a team of elite players, CS:GO team Dignitas adds veteran Jonas “Lekr0” Olofsson

- Dignitas are convinced Lekr0 and f0rest's help will push the team forward
Hellbent on aiming for the top, Dignitas welcome yet another former NiP to their CS:GO roster.
Dignitas is Assembling a Team of Former Ninjas
Dignitas welcomes yet another elite player to the team. Experienced veteran and former member of Ninjas in Pyjamas, Jonas “Lekr0” Olofsson will be joining the roster, taking Haris “H4RR3” Hadžić's place. Among the ranks of Dignitas, Lekr0 will be reuniting with a former teammate from NiP, namely Patrik “f0rest” Lindberg.
F0rest is famous for his long membership in Ninjas in Pyjamas. The professional player played with them for over seven years as a part of their prime roster. In the earlier years of the team, f0rest helped secure some major victories. He partnered with Robin “Fifflaren” Johansson, Cristopher “GeT_RiGhT” Alesund, Adam “friberg” Friberg and Richard “Xizt” Landström.
However, the four teammates slowly started dropping out of the team. Lekr0's stay in Ninjas in Pyjamas was much shorter, lasting only from 2018 to 2020. During that time, the two elites played together.
NiP's performance started deteriorating shortly after, and they did not manage to secure the same victories they were once popular with. Thus in 2020, f0rest ended his seven-year-long career in the team, followed by lekr0 some months later.
Before settling in Dignitas, Lekr0 was temporarily in a Danish organization called North. However, North quickly fell apart because of financial difficulties and suboptimal performance. However, Lekr0 quickly found a new place among Dignitas.
Bringing the NIP Roster Altogether
The team now reunites several former NiP players with few differences from the original setup: Robin “Fifflaren” Johansson will now be responsible for the management, and Hakon “hallzerk” Fjærli, an unrelated player, will be filling the last spot. Some previous NiP players will be missing, such as Xizt GeT_RiGhT, who retired. Otherwise, f0rest, Lekr0, hallzerk, and friberg will be playing alongside each other again.
Lekr0 didn't have much time to prepare as his debut in Dignitas was on the same day his admission was announced. Dignitas played against HAVU in the first round of the Pinnacle Cup. Although they lost the match, the players are hopeful f0rest and Lekr0's experience will push the team to the top.
