Ninjas in Pyjamas Ninjas in Pyjamas Europe Rank #5 have announced the last three players of their VALORANT roster, signing the French trio of CREA , Fearoth , and HyP , completing the organization's second starting lineup since the game's beta.
CREA, HyP, and Fearoth previously made up the core of HypHypHyp HypHypHyp Inactive , an all-French squad that made multiple high placements in the Underdogs Tournament, the Mandatory Cup, and multiple stages of Take the Throne, even once beating then-champions fish123 2-0 in TTT #6. In early July, the French team parted ways, due to players individually receiving offers from differing organizations.
All three players find their roots in other FPS esports, with CREA and Fearoth moving over from the French CS:GO scene, and HyP coming off a professional Overwatch career, previously competing in the Overwatch League with the Paris Eternal, before retiring in April of this year to focus on VALORANT.
NiP are set to debut their new roster in the WePlay! VALORANT Invitational, whose group stage is set to begin tomorrow. Their first match of the event will be up against ForZe, who previously forfeited a match against NiP in Epulze Valorant Prodigies series.
