A roster full of true legends will make their Intel® Extreme Masters Sydney debut after Ninjas in Pyjamas accepted the challenge to play at Australia’s premier esports mega event.
Currently ranked 8th in the ESL CS:GO World Ranking, the Ninjas will try to recapture the same magic that took them to consecutive IEM Oakland crowns in 2016 and 2017. NiP is one of the most established organizations in the scene, with their competitive origins rooted in the Counter-Strike 1.0 days. They’ve been consistently among the top teams in CS:GO since the game’s launch in 2012.
This longevity also includes two of their key players, f0rest and GeT_RiGhT, who have been the bedrock of this team since the very beginning. Both players have a deep history with IEM, having won the Season III World Championship in 2009 playing for Fnatic. Ten years later, they are still a force to be reckoned with. Aussie fans can look forward to enjoying some real old school talent.
REZ, dennis and Lekr0 complete a roster with more than enough potential to rekindle their spark and challenge for silverware once again.
