mithR leaves North; replaced by Jumpy ⚡⚡⚡ Esports news, analytics, reviews on WePlay! The latest news on WePlay!

Torbjørn "mithR" Nyborg has left North, and Jimmy "Jumpy" Berndtsson has joined the organization according to posts made by the organization via Twitter

mithR has been with North for a little under a year and has helped lead them to victories at DreamHack Open Sevilla and ICE Challenge 2019. After some poor placings towards the end of 2019 and the beginning of the 2020 season, it seems North wanted to make another change. North replaced Jakob "JUGi" Hansen early this year for Mathias "MSL" Lauridsen.

Now, the Danes have turned to Jumpy as their new head coach. Jumpy was the head coach of fnatic for three years before being replaced by Andreas "Samuelsson" Samuelsson in September 2019.

With Jumpy, North is now:

  • Markus "Kjaerbye" Kjærbye
  • Nicklas "gade" Gade
  • René "cajunb" Borg
  • Philip "aizy" Aistrup
  • Mathias "MSL" Lauridsen
  • Jimmy "Jumpy" Berndtsson (Coach)

North's performance coach, Christian Engell, released a statement on the official North website regarding the decision to replace mithR


Although it has been a tough decision to let mithR go, we concluded, after a thorough analysis of the entire performance setup, that the team needs some new inspiration and different coaching approach to unlock the full potential of the players. We held talks with numerous highly qualified coaches, and we are very pleased to get Jumpy onboard as our number one choice. With his prior high-level experience and solid coaching philosophy, we see the signing of Jumpy as another important boost to our development towards the top.
