Details are still unclear, however, surrounding the previous captain’s sudden departure.

In an extremely quick Twitter post, Akbar “SoNNeikO” Butaev revealed that he would be stepping far from Ninjas in Pyjamas. The Dota 2 player captained the team starting from April this year and it’s unclear presently what the situations might lag his departure.

In his tweet, SoNNeikO said:” I am out from nip! Thanks to my colleagues for great days”. Previous Dota player Kyle Freedman suggested, however, that this might have been a decision on behalf of the group and not SoNNeiko with his tweet specifying:” Sonneiko is too respectful so I’ll state it; hi @NiPGaming, this is an actually, TRULY bad relocation.”
