Ninjas in Pyjamas withdraw from ESEA

CS:GO Ian “SW4Y1N” Nowakowski

The ESL One Cologne winners, Ninjas in Pyjamas has decided to withdraw from ESEA's European Invite League.

The team's record was well-south of expectations as they sported only two wins to their fourteen losses. The team then decided to withdraw from the remaining portion of the league and the rest of their remaining schedule will be forfeited by default.

Matches and results

With their chances of making the finals all but out of reach, NiP made a quiet exit from the online league. It was a surprising situation considering the team's success at ESL One Cologne where they secured the title. The Swedes have yet to issue a statement on the matter; we will continue to monitor the situation and provide updates when available.
