Dota 2: SoNNeikO Part Ways With Ninjas in Pyjamas

One of the most legendary CIS players is no longer a part of the European powerhouse.

Many of you might remember Akbar “SoNNeikO” Butaev as one of the most valuable Natus Vincere players. He was a part of the organization for many years, during which he won a lot of events. However, after a lot of disappointing results, a very tough decision was made that removed him from Na’Vi’s team.

After he tried playing with a lot of people, in the end, SoNNeikO teamed with up with a few promising players and joined Chicken Fighters. During that time, one of the biggest esports organizations (NiP) decided to drop its roster and rebuild it from scratch. As a result, they decided to give Chicken Fighters a chance and got them under their banner.

What happened after that

Unfortunately, the newly signed NiP roster didn’t have as much success as the organization wanted to. Apart from the fact that their results were not that good, COVID-19 didn’t help either.

As a result, the European organization decided that it’s time to change something once again, so they released SoNNeikO from their roster. In fact, the talented support event went to Twitter, where he said that he hasn’t communicated with his teammates for a while.

We are still not sure what will happen with the ex-Na’Vi player nor with Ninjas in Pyjamas. The European team is not expected to participate in any events soon, which gives them enough time to find a good replacement.

As for SoNNeikO, it seems like he will remain without a team for the time being. However, a player of caliber will always manage to find a team to play for, so we think that it’s just a matter of time before this happens.

Here is NiP’s current roster:

  • Charlie “CharlieDota” Arat
  • Ondrej “Supream” Starha
  • Jonas “SabeRLight” Volek
  • Adrian “Era” Kryeziu
