Linus "LNZ" Holtäng, a member of Young Ninjas roster who played for the main team during the PGL Major Stockholm 2021 and a number more tournaments, shared his thoughts on that time. Apparently, the player himself considered his performance to be a "failure" as he was later on replaced by a more experienced member Patrick "es3tag" Hansen. The interview with LNZ was conducted by Cybersport.Metaratings.

I think, at the Major everyone on the team felt that we could have gone further and done better. Maybe, not as far as winning the whole tournament, but at least we could have shown a good enough performance. It was a huge disappointment for all of us to drop out after the very first game in the arena at home, as we had high hopes for this tournament. <...> The reason I failed was due to a lack of experience. I needed to grow more as a player, and the team found the best replacement for my role — es3tag. He is a much more experienced player, which is exactly what NiP needed.

The Ninjas finished the Major on the 5-8th position, losing to G2 who later on proceeded to the grand final but lost to NAVI in the deciding game. LNZ was among the 6 worst-performing players of the event in terms of individual rating. Soon after the end of the Major he got transferred back to the Young Ninjas roster.
