Ninjas in Pyjamas have a long and illustrious history. Indeed, this club began to taste major competition victories very early on. The impressive resume was built primarily through the LAN competition, in which they overshadowed the professional event by going undefeated over several months. Additionally, in 2012, they managed to win every international LAN tournament.
They have garnered a reputation by competing with the best in nearly a dozen different game titles. Until their disbandment, the team battled in Counter-Strike. Before their departure, they had won both the CPL Winter 2001 and NGL-One Season I finals. They have since returned to a well-known team.
NiP won the DreamHack Winter 2013 tournament against VeryGaming shortly after their return and the ESL One: Cologne tournament four months later against Fnatic. They would also win DreamHack Winter 2014, DreamHack Masters Malmo, and the StarLadder i-League StarSeries Season 2 of the StarLadder i-League. Both of the latter two were in 2016.
A very successful 2021
The top esports team also won the 2021 edition of the Six Invitational, an annual professional Rainbow Six Siege championship held by Ubisoft, the game's developer and publisher. The tournament, which takes place in Montreal, the headquarters of the Ubisoft studio that is working on the game, brings together the best teams from around the world. The event serves as a sort of informal World Cup, marking the end of the previous year. The team came in second place in the 2020 edition.
It also took first place in the Copa Elite Six-Season 2021: Stage 2 and the Six August 2020 Major-Brazil. Other notable performances include the Brasileirao 2021 Finals and the Six Sweden Major 2021, where the team came second.
After two roster changes, the organization decided to drop their Dota 2 team in 2020 to concentrate more on their other esport teams. The poor Dota 2 performance made the team devote resources to bringing the CS: GO crew back to glory.
They also revamped League of Legends divisions to re-establish their long-term presence in the scene and provide a more stable environment. From an organizational standpoint, the team believes that this optimization is essential to entirely focus on providing the results that all of the fans and partners around the world expect.
