Nicolai Hvilshøj Reedtz, known as “Dev1ce,” is a 26-year-old Danish CS:GO player who has been representing Ninjas In Pyjamas for over six months. Previously, he was playing for Astralis since 2016.

At IEM Fall 2021, both Ninjas In Pyjamas and Astralis managed to qualify for the next stage, and they both won five out of five matches in their groups. If they can overcome the rest of the teams in the playoffs, they will meet each other in the finals.

Ninjas managed to overcome FaZe Clan, Fiend, Skade, Fnatic, and DBL Poney as Astralis find success against Movistar Riders, Heroic, Complexity Gaming, Sinners, and Endpoint in the group stage.

Dev1ce spoke in a recent interview with Esports Kingdom’s Grady Hooker and talked about their performance as well as sharing his opinion about Astralis’ performance in the group stage, who were lacking their in-game leader, Lukas “gla1ve” Rossander.

In the conversation, Dev1ce pointed out that Astralis overperformed in the IEM Fall 2021 so far especially with their low expectations following the absence of an in-game leader and praised their work.

While the Danish AWPer was saying that it will be so exciting what they are going to do when gla1ve returns back to the roster, he also pointed out that it will be a win-win condition for both teams if they face each other in the finals.

Dev1ce on Astralis:

“We’ve managed to dodge each other for almost all tournaments now. I would love to play them. I still speak with them pretty much on a daily basis, especially at tournaments.

I think they did well, they probably overperformed a little bit with their expectations. It’s gonna be fun to see what they’re gonna do with the lineup going into the major since gla1ve is probably gonna be back, there’s some dynamic to that.

If we face them here at this tournament, it’s gonna be in the final and then it’s a win-win for both teams. I would say.”
