Peter “ppd” Dager, age 26, is a veteran Dota player with multiple titles under his belt, including a first place finish at The International in 2015. He serves as the captain and position 5 for the NiP squad and with his experience, he’s the perfect fit for the job.
Next up is Adrian “Fata” Trinks, age 25, a German born gaming talent, who will be switching from his previous role of offlane back to midlane where he began his career nearly a decade ago. Fata finished 5th at this year’s International and we’re looking forward to seeing him continue that momentum with NiP.
Martin “Saksa” Sazdov, age 23, will be playing our position 4. The Macedonian gamer has an impressive track record, participating in a slew of Valve events including a 2nd place finish at TI6. Welcome aboard, Martin!
Lastly, we have Neta “33” Shapira. The Israeli 21-year-old competed alongside PPD last season with OpTic Gaming where they finished in the top 8 at TI8. He will be continuing this season as the team’s offlaner. Neta is notorious for his wide hero pool and outstanding performance on micro-based heroes such as Broodmother and Visage.
People at Ninjas in Pyjamas and Betway love DotA2, and it is with great excitement we have been chosen as the home of a world class DotA2 team led by Peter “PPD” Dager. We have over the last year been keeping our eyes on the DotA2 scene, evaluating several opportunities for entry, to return to the game. An opportunity like this is rare, and we are thrilled to have such an experienced and talented team here at Ninjas in Pyjamas. Welcome, Peter, Adrian, Martin, Neta and Marcus!
