Rank: TBAactiveactive
Ninjas in Pyjamas, often abbreviated NiP, is a European esports organization that was formed in 2000. The organization started as a Counter-Strike team, and became a top contender in the competitive scene for seven years. In 2007, the organization decided it was time to disband and attempt new things. In 2012, with the long awaited release of Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, the newly inspired NiP organization reformed and created a new roster to compete once again. In May 2013, as part of its reformation, they picked up the previous roster of Copenhagen Wolves to form their first League of Legends team. The League of Legends NiP team is notable for competing in the summer split of the Season 3 European League Championship Series (LCS).
Biography

Formation of Ninjas in Pyjamas

In May 2013, the Ninjas in Pyjamas organization created their first League of Legends team by acquiring the former roster of Copenhagen Wolves: Bjergsen, Deficio, TheTess, Svenskeren, and NeeGodbro.

Season 3

NiP competed in the Summer Split of the Season 3 EU League Championship Series, since the roster had qualified for a spot at the earlier Promotion Tournament playing as the Copenhagen Wolves.

Due to an unsatisfactory 2-6 start after two weeks of the summer split, NiP underwent a major roster change by benching NeeGodbro, TheTess, and Svenskeren, while recruiting former Heimerdinger's Colossi teammates extinkt, Malunoo and Freeze as the starting top laner, jungler, and AD carry, respectively.

A month later, extinkt would announce his retirement from competitive League of Legends and leave the team. Three days later, his role in the top lane would be filled by Mimer. NiP finished the season strongly, going 13-7 throughout the final seven weeks and finishing in a four-way tie for second at 15-13. After a poor showing at the week 9 tiebreaker, Ninjas in Pyjamas was seeded fifth going into the summer playoffs.

In August, NiP quickly exited contention after a 0-2 first round loss to Gambit Gaming. In the fifth place match, Team ALTERNATE prevailed 2-1 over the Ninjas in Pyjamas, sending NiP to the Season 4 Spring Promotion Tournament.

Pre-Season 4

At the Spring Split Promotion Tournament in December 2013, Ninjas in Pyjamas announced their intent to face Kiedyś Miałem Team of Poland in their match. Although NiP were heavy favorites, Kiedyś Miałem won in a 3-0 sweep, and the Ninjas in Pyjamas were denied a spot in the Season 4 Spring Split of the European League Championship Series.
