Anders Blume is set to come forward about his time at Ninjas in Pyjamas, following Robin ‘Fifflaren’ Johansson accusation of player mistreatment, and encouraged former NiP players to do the same.

Anders is one of the most popular commentators in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, having cast and analyzed countless matches at the biggest stages in the world. He has been part of the scene since early 2013 and is considered as a go-to caster for big events. 

In 2013 the caster joined NiP, becoming part of NiPTV which was most notably known for CS:GO commentary. He stayed with the organization for a year, before moving onto Room On Fire, and attending more events.

The Dane initially remained quiet following Fifflarens accusations on July 23, but finally shared his thoughts on July 25 through Twitter

“My main reason for not saying much was that all I have is a lot of different stories I can’t really confirm, but Fiff did make a great point: if everyone adds whatever pieces of the puzzle they have, then maybe that’s a way forward in terms of figuring out just what the hell went on during 13/14” said Anders. 

He also added that he will be “having a talk” with Richard Lewis soon, where he is likely to speak about NiP in detail and get everything out in the open, similarly to Fifflaren.

Anders is also leading the charge to “share whatever pieces of the puzzle” he has, and is likely hoping for ex-NiP players like Adam ‘friberg’ Friberg, Richard ‘Xizt’ Landström, and Mikail ‘Maikelele’ Bill to do the same, especially since the players have already had something to say on the matter. 

No date is yet confirmed for Anders’ talk with Richard Lewis, however, the Counter-Strike calendar is fairly clear at the moment as teams are preparing for the StarLadder Berlin Major, which is set to take place in late August, so more information may be revealed soon.

What did Fifflaren say?

Fifflaren was interviewed by Richard Lewis on July 22, there he spoke about many problems with NiP during his time on the team, including unpaid tournament winnings, the organization making roster decisions without consulting the team, and many unfair contract clauses, for example, one that allowed the organization to fire the players at any time.
