When Ninjas in Pyjamas got Eliminated from the ELEAGUE Atlanta Major qualifier in 2017 a lot of people thought Cologne 2016 would be the last time we’d see NiP at a Major. Well thanks to a lot of hard work and some new players in the lineup, NiP just clawed their way out of the qualifiers and plowed through the New Challengers 3-0, securing their spot in the Legends stage. We take a look at how NiP took down Astralis in an insane quadruple OT to advance to the New Legends Stage.
