Ninjas in Pyjamas, often abbreviated NiP, is a Swedish professional electronic sports organization known for their accomplishments in the Counter-Strike scene. The team was a dominant force during the original version of Counter-Strike from their founding in 2000 to their dissolution in 2007. In 2012, the team reformed with a Counter-Strike: Global Offensive squad. In 2015 the organization expanded into Dota 2 by picking up Swedish team LAJONS. In January 2017, NiP picked up a new Dota 2 squad, after staying out of the scene for all of 2016. The orginization soon dropped the new team however as the team declined into having "results below our high expectation." They stayed out of Dota 2 for the rest of 2017 and into late 2018 but have once again picked up a Dota 2 team.
