The 3rd version of Ninjas in Pyjamas is ready to fight. After many disappointments, first with Bonkar and Yacine, then with HypHypHyp, the Swedish team rounded out their new team by recruiting Chiwawa.
The Ninjas in Pyjamas had a vacancy since the departure of HyP and Fearoth and following the recruitment of Sayf, former Bonk player. The arrival of Chiwawa means that the roster is full, ten days before the launch of the Valorant First Strike.
Chiwawa played Valorant on several teams, the most notable being Entropiq. He's actually been playing in Ninjas in Pyjamas for a few weeks now, as a trial player. He was visibly convincing, the team having won the GLX Elite Series against Prodigy. It should be noted that the rival teams, namely G2 Esports, FunPlus Phoenix, Team Liquid and Bonk (now Guild Esports) didn't participate in the tournament. It's still a very good warm-up, and we wish them to be as convincing thereafter.
To convince, that will really be the mission of the Ninjas in Pyjamas. Their tournament win ratio was quite alarming throughout the Ignition Series. The team was in a delicate position: unable to win against the 4 European tenors, but superior to all the others. This intermediate position will not satisfy the NiP who will probably give all they have during First Strike.
