Ninjas In Pajamas

The reason is, NiP at IEM Oakland managed to beat the number 1 and 2 teams in the world, SK Gaming and FaZe Clan. With the entry of 2 young players into the Ninjas In Pajamas camp, of course NiP has a chance to win this competition.
FaZe Clan is a team of 5 players from 5 different countries. This team is also filled with some of the best players in the world; making FaZe Clan can be called the best team in the world at this moment. With easy wins at ESL One New York and ELEAGUE CS: GO Premier, the chance for FaZe Clan to win this tournament is pretty big.

In the past 20 years, the name SK Gaming has prestige separate for those who are there. After the 5 newest Brazilian players they entered SK Gaming. SK has become one of the most consistent teams in CS: GO history, fronted by the best players from South America, they certainly want to bring home the BLAST Pro Series trophy.
