Pretty nuts to think that 4/5ths of this NiP, with their coach standing in, made top 8 of a major just over a year ago.

Ninjas in Pyjamas were one of the strongest teams in the CSGO competitive scene. However their downfall has been periodic and systemic. Recently Thoorin roasted the team from Sweden.
Considering that four of the five players in the team were a part of the roster since the beginning, however they are also probably the reason why NIP is not as strong a team now as it was a few years ago. The four players have been unable to reinvent themselves and have been falling off in rankings and statistics in a linear way.
