Ex6TenZ Joins Ninjas in Pyjamas’ VALORANT Roster

Ninjas in Pyjamas was among the teams which had heavy shifts in the offseason. After several farewells and a new addition, the team was looking for a fifth player to complete on its roster. Not long after, the team found what it needed in one of its rivals in CS:GO: Kévin “Ex6TenZ” Droolans.

After being disappointed in its competition level for four months and an unexpected result in First Strike: Europe, Ninjas in Pyjamas decided to make changes in its VALORANT roster a few days ago and parted ways with German player luckeRRR alongside Swedish Sayf while adding young talent Jady to the squad as its fourth.

The team was searching for a fifth player as it revealed in the latest transfer announcement, but nobody expected it would be Ex6TenZ. The 30-year-old veteran player started his career in Counter-Strike: Source, but he reached his peak between 2011-2013 in CS:GO. When the Belgian player was at his highest level, he was the long-standing rival of Ninjas in Pyjamas in CS:GO and caused the squad a lot of trouble during that time. Now in VALORANT, the veteran player joined his all-time biggest rival team.

Ex6TenZ shared his thoughts about the move in the statement which has been published in NiP’s website:

“It’s an honor for me to join NiP and I know what it means and what’s expected of me. This is the kind of team you represent with pride. When I retired from professional CS to become a coach, I told myself I shouldn’t rush into it since I definitely needed some rest after the G2 and GamerLegion projects. I took some well-deserved time off and did things I’d wanted to do for a long time. After a year, Maniac told me to try out VALORANT. Guess what? Love at first sight. I’m so glad I chose this path, and the goal is obviously to make Ninjas in Pyjamas the number one team in the world.”

Ninjas in Pyjamas’ new roster is:

  • Egor “chiwawa” Stepanyuk
  • Charles “CREA” Beauvois
  • Yaroslav “Jady” Nikolaev
  • Emir “rhyme” Muminovic
  • Kevin “Ex6TenZ” Droolans
