NIP have always seen extremely talented players as part of their roster. However they have not been confident mentally in their performances. Their confidence has definitely wavered and their performance also suffers immeasurably for this.
Happy for our new full-time mental coach to start working with the @NiPGaming CSGO boys now. He will be a great asset for us. #GONINJAS

NIP has now hired a full-time mental coach for their team. The role of the mental coach will be somewhat similar to the esports psychologist hired by Astralis. They will help the players be in peak mental condition and not be distracted from their job: playing.
The announcement came as NiP and partner Betway esports published a video stating they’d be employing a full-time esports psychologist in a bid to improve mental health across their team.
