Controversies

The European esports team, Ninjas in Pyjamas, has been embroiled in a number of controversies over the years. In 2012, the team was accused of match-fixing in a Counter-Strike: Global Offensive match against iBUYPOWER. The team was later cleared of any wrongdoing, but the match-fixing scandal severely damaged the team's reputation.

In 2015, the team was again embroiled in controversy when one of its players, Richard "Xizt" Landström, was accused of using a racist slur during a match. Xizt was later suspended from the team and fined by the organization.

The team has also been criticized for its treatment of female players. In 2016, the team's Counter-Strike: Global Offensive roster included two women, Helena "hel" Kristiansson and Sarah "sar" Harrison. Both players left the team after just a few months, with Harrison citing the team's "toxic" environment as the reason for her departure.

Despite all of the controversies, Ninjas in Pyjamas remains one of the most successful esports teams in the world. The team has won numerous championships in a variety of games, including Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, Dota 2, and League of Legends.
