One Of The Best Counter-Strike Teams Practices In A Spooky Mansion

Ninjas in Pyjamas — aka NiP — came so close to pulling off a massive upset and winning last year’s Dream Hack Winter finals that it hurt. But the stinging taste of defeat eventually fades, and I imagine having a rad (though weirdly spooky) mansion to train out of doesn’t hurt.
