In the new Dota 2 competitive season with Ninja’s in Pyjama, Ninjas took a fast lead in seeking to remain competitive and now, despite the abrupt withdrawal from ppd, signed Chicken Fighters earlier this week.
Since the team was signed before the Pushka League began, Chicken Fighters will play in a major NiP tournament without having to qualify again. In the battle for $250,000 they will once more be taking on the leading European teams to finish fourth in ESL One in Los Angeles Online.
This marks also the return of Adrian “Age” Kryeziu, the original Dota captain who joined NiP three seasons later. The new NiP lineup consists of Arat, Arat, Supremej, Štarha, Jonaš, SabeRLight, Eragon, and SoNNeikO, Arat and Charlie “CharlieDota.”
“Chickens has become Ninjas,” said SoNNeiko. “We are fortunate to have an accomplished team of experts who advise us and help us develop and aspire for grandeur after playing for months without a business! The new NiP roster will battle it against OG.Seed on April 23 in the final WePlay game! I am glad to announce that we are part of the NiP. Opening day of the Pushka Cup.
Officially released by the organisations are former NiP players Nikita “Dajak” Kuzmin, Jason “TANNER” Weedon and Rodrigo “Lelis” Santos, while ESL One L.A. Evgeniy stand-ins “Blizzy” Ree and “MiLAN” Kozomara remain free agents.
