Razer-NiP partnership aligns legendary team with esports pioneer

“NIP are a legendary esports team, just as Razer has always been a pioneer within esports,” said Flo ElChikito Gutierrez, Director of Global Esports at Razer. “Our organizations never settle for anything less than being the best. Razer is extremely excited about this collaboration, as our gaming technology will help NIP’s players dominate the competition.”

Ninjas in Pyjamas was created all the way back in 2000. Over the years the name has become synonymous with excellence, particularly in the Counter-Strike franchise. CS heroes such as Patrik “f0rest” Lindberg, Christopher “GeT_RiGhT” Alesund and Robin “Fifflaren” Johansson all carved out their legacy during their time at NiP.
