As an organisation which is not afraid of new challenges and opportunities, we’re always searching far & wide for the next big game to possibly enter the esports arena one day. With the amount of hours our employees have been racking up in this game, the signing of a competitive team was pretty much inevitable. If it was a sound business move or peer pressure, we’re not entirely sure of. One thing is for certain though – we’re all pretty darn excited about it.
Today we’re glad to announce our venture in to PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds, the game many of us have that special love/hate relationship with ever since its explosive launch in late March this year. With such a rapid growth in playerbase and millions of gamers dropping onto the island of Erangel every single day, we’re happy to see that this game has struck the hearts of gaming enthusiasts all across the globe. Of course the Ninjas in Pyjamas want to be a part of that journey.
The roster consists of none other than Borg, Ekkz, Sweaterr and Crunch – all top players in the world of PUBG. Welcome to the NiP Family, guys and thank you to Cloud9 for the smooth transition of your players!
The Dream big or go home quote comes to mind, it doesn’t get much bigger than NiP, and our dreams have become a reality. We’re honored to be under the same banner with so many legends, and look forward to a great future with our new home and family. Can’t wait to see what we can achieve together as Ninjas!ekkz
Being the first roster signed to NiP with NA presence isn’t being taken lightly. We’re privileged to have joined such a wonderful family and want to make NiP as well as our fans very proud.Sweater

About PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds
PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG) is a multiplayer online battle royale video game developed and published by PUBG Corp., a subsidary of Korean publisher Bluehole. The game is based on previous mods that were developed by Brendan “PlayerUnknown” Greene for other games using the 2000 film Battle Royale for inspiration, and expanded into a standalone game under Greene’s creative direction. In the game, up to one hundred players parachute onto an island and scavenge for weapons and equipment to kill others while avoiding getting killed themselves. The available safe area of the game’s map decreases in size over time, directing surviving players into tighter areas to force encounters. The last player or team standing wins the round.
