NiP

Sweden - Europe

NiP or Ninjas in Pyjamas is another nordic esport organization from Sweden, founded in 2000. The team was known as one of the best in CS 1.6 before they stopped in 2007.

In 2012 they returned and is again set to be one of the big boys in the CS:GO history.

They signed players like “f0rest” and “GeT_RiGhT” who is still to be found in the team today. NiP dominated the CS:GO scene with many victories in tournaments such as DreamHack, ESL and many other offline and online events.

NiP went on a LAN winning streak of 87-0 before finally losing to Virtus.pro in 2013. NiP won their first Major Championship in 2014 after two final defeats before and has since lost another 2 finals.

In the recent years NiP has struggled a bit with getting big results and their world ranking is jumping. But Ninjas in Pyjamas are still seen as one of the most important and greatest Counter Strike teams in the world.
