Joona "natu" Leppänen is a retired Finnish Counter-Strike: Global Offensive player and former Counter-Strike player. He was formerly the coach for Ninjas in Pyjamas. He currently works for the organization ENCE eSports, being a partner and the marketing director. Prior to retiring from competitive gaming, he most recently played for ENCORE/3DMAX as their in-game leader.

Professional career[edit]

One of the most experienced players still involved within the scene, Leppänen has been around since Counter-Strike's inception and has since then played competitively on and off in various teams. He called an end to his fifteen-year career as a player in late April 2015[1], and days later it was announced that he would begin coaching Ninjas in Pyjamas.[2] On August 28th, Ninjas in Pyjamas released him as a coach.
