The Scandinavian from NiP were just the first players to adopt the new form of CS in 2012, giving them a significant edge throughout the game's first year. They once established an absurd 87-map winning run on the LAN. Nobody has even come anywhere close to that mark ten years later.
Alesund and Lindberg were annihilating their opponents with every map they played. Include Freiberg, whose headshots were just as impressive as the other two, and the gorgeous Landrström, who assumed command. Robin Johansson was the only non-star participant in this group of five. But at the time, he had the ability and knowledge to use the lads to defeat one squad after another.
April 5, Top-10 finals of StarLadder StarSeries V. In Kyiv's Cybersport Arena, Ninjas in Pyjamas squared off against Virtus.Pro. The Swedes appeared unbeatable. The CIS roster for Virtus.Pro accomplished the unthinkable by defeating the Swedes twice.
When that happened, f0rest jumped out of his chair and began clapping, according to Robin Fifflaren Johansson. He advised us to take pride in our accomplishments and not feel terrible about them because it was unlikely to be topped.
Following SLTV, the team won five further LAN competitions, but at RaidCall EMS One, we fell to Virtus.Pro once more and could not advance to the tournament's grand finale. CIS Pro's team, NiP, kept up their strong play, although with less success. Despite these disappointing losses against Virtus. But in ESL One Cologne 2014, the Swedes defeated Fnatic 2-1 in the championship match to win their first (and regrettably final) Major competition.
The Johansson-led roster would remain together until November 2014. The squad will make three big final appearances during this period. However, they can only triumph once in ESL One:Cologne 2014. The squad experienced a setback following ESL, which prompted several lineup adjustments.
There is currently just one remaining member of that team, the Ninjas in Pyjamas, at the club. Despite having finished his professional playing career, Fifflaren has stayed active in the industry by commentating and reviewing CS: GO games. Until August 2019, Xizt was a member of another Swedish organization, Fnatic, until being expelled.
On the opposite side, Friberg is a member of the GamerLegion 2-3 squad. The golden period of Fnatic would then start after that. After, the squad faded into obscurity and hardly ever displayed competitive performances. The team didn't start to gel until 2021–2022, though. The roster, however, had little success with management.
NiP has faced 13 individuals during the past two years! Some transfers have highly illogical reasoning behind them. First, NiP spends a million dollars on purchasing Device. However, they are unable to locate an excellent fifth player. Next, they alternately bring in some youngsters from academies; each fails and is sent out.
Estag, who has just 2nd experience, is awarded the AWP following the defeat of Device. Rez, who had never used an AWP before, is now the sniper.
Brollan has joined the group. While he didn't like to speak English, he left Fnatic. Several months ago, they acquired Aleksib and declared that the squad now speaks English.
Device is still seated in the backup and is most likely grinning. Although he is already prepared to play, the management is attempting to sell him for €600,000. The squad is finally given a new captain, but Plopski rather than Humpus is fired. Consequently, NiP already has two captains: Es3tag and Brollan - a sniper with no prior experience or motivation to learn English. They are not the most reliable team, in our opinion. But despite all of these issues, the group is still ranked in the top 10.
