Ninjas in Pajamas has revealed its new one VALUABLE squad, consisting of a squad of South American players.
It’s a significant change in direction from the team’s previous lineup. Until the beginning of December 2021, the Swedish organization recruits European players, such as Adam “ec1s“ Church.
The organization has now selected a range of experienced and growing players from Brazil and Argentina.
When it comes to experienced players, people immediately think of Alexandre “xand” Zizi and Benjamin “bnj” Rabinovich. Xand has already made a name for himself at FURIA Esports, where he competed last year. With the Brazilian organization, he took the lead in VCT: South America’s Last Chance Qualifier and qualified for the Champions, where he finished in the group stage.
On the other hand, Bnj joined KRÜ Esports in March 2021 and competed in the Masters Reykjavík tournament. In June, the Argentinian switched to the team’s inactive squad, and therefore was not part of the team’s campaigns in the Masters Berlin and Champions.
The remaining trio including Walney “Jonn” Reis, Gabriel “bezn1” Luis da Costa and Cauan “cauanzin” Pereira have little professional experience. VALUABLE outside their home area. Between them, however, they’ve snagged multiple thirds in B-tier events, which makes them interesting prospects to watch in the future.
The first tournament that NiP’s new roster will participate in is VCT 2022: Brazil Stage One Challenger, which kicks off today.
