Ninjas in Pyjamas recently announced that they have decided not to compete in the Game Changers scene and withdraw from the competition. Ninjas in Pyjamas Lightning players, klaudia, mads, rezq, OYKU, Padge, and the head coach Jaxsen are now free agents, looking for a new home to continue competing at the highest level.

Ninjas in Pyjamas Lightning went 0/7 last split

NiP formed their EMEA Game Changers roster at the start of the 2022 season, and the journey started with VCT 2023: Game Changers EMEA Series 1. The organization grabbed four wins and saw three losses during the group stage and barely missed the chance of competing in playoffs. NiP Lightning were right behind Guild X, the team with five wins and two losses. After a promising run, the team turned its eyes towards the second split to make it happen this time and achieve something worthy. However, the second split was a literal nightmare. NiP failed to win a single game and saw seven losses. The disband call came even before VCT 2023: Game Changers EMEA Series 2 came to an end.

With a 1.30 rating, mads led her team in terms of statistics, but the British player couldn't carry her team to glory. Following mads, klaudia holds a 1.23 rating and a 1.22 K/D, mainly playing Initiators like Breach, Skye, and Sova.

Looks like we will not be seeing Ninjas in Pyjamas Lightning in the Game Changers scene, at least for a while, as the team decided not to continue. However, we don't know what the future will bring.

Here is the disbanded roster of NiP Lightning:
