The Swedish esports organization Ninjas in Pyjamas has announced their new Dota 2 roster. The organization signed a European mix called Chicken Fighters, which is led by former captain of Natus Vincere Akbar "SoNNeikO" Butaev.
The roster also includes Charlie "CharlieDota" Arat, Ondřej "Supream^" Štarha, Jonáš "SabeRLight-" Volek and Adrian "Era" Kryeziu. The team was formed last November. Recently they emerged victorious at Arena of Blood, as well as placed 5-6th at GGBET Championship 2 and 4th at ESL One Los Angeles Online – Europe & CIS. Although the team did not manage to make it through the qualifier for WePlay! Pushka League Season 1: Division 1, they will still participate in it since the tournament’s organizers had invited Ninjas in Pyjamas beforehand.
Earlier Peter "ppd" Dager, the captain of the former Ninjas in Pyjamas roster, announced his retirement from competitive Dota 2. The rest of the players, including Nikita "Daxak" Kuzmin, Jason Connor "TANNER" Weedon and Rodrigo "Lelis" Santos, were released.
