Just hours after PPD’s retirement and the dissolution of their Dota 2 roster, Ninjas in Pyjamas has announced the signing of a new roster for their Dota 2 team.
Ninjas in Pyjamas will now feature the Chicken Fighters Dota 2 roster featuring Swedish and Czech players. The Chicken Fighters team finished fourth at the recent ESL One Los Angeles EU/CIS tournament, including victories over the former NiP Dota 2 roster and Team Nigma. They eventually lost to Viking.gg in the lower bracket Round 3 of the online tournament, securing $14,000 in prize money.

Thank you to Daxak, Lelis and Tanner for representing NiP in a turbulent time. They’ve been great and professional the whole way through, and I am sure they’ll find success in their next venture.
As I’ve talked about earlier, rebuilding with a core that fits the ethos and vision of where Ninjas in Pyjamas is headed, has been our main priority. Longevity and sustainability in the ecosystem of DotA2 is something we want to take an integral part in helping build out, and a stable and top performing roster is a requirement of that.

Former Natus Vincere player, Sonneiko is excited to represent the Ninjas in Pyjamas.
Chickens transformed into Ninjas. After playing for months without an organization we are thrilled to have an experienced team of professionals backing us up and helping us become better and strive for greatness! I am happy to announce that we will be part of NiP.
