Ninjas in Pyjamas is a Swedish esports organization which was founded in 2000. The team competed in Counter-Strike 1.6 until their dissolution in 2007. In 2012, the team returned with a now heavily renowned Counter-Strike: Global Offensive squad. On August 2nd, 2016 , the organization announced its first venture into competitive Overwatch with the pickup of Finnish team SG-1. Their current style of play is a unique one, commonly called the "3x3 strat" or the "NiP strat". It is usually shown as 3 tanks and 3 supports, and no DPS heroes. Their hero line-up mostly appears as Ana, Lúcio, Zenyatta, Reinhardt, Zarya, and either Winston or Roadhog as the last hero.
