After a disappointing last-place finish at The International 9, Ninjas In Pyjamas were inevitably due for some major overhauls. Today, the team has announced its Dota 2 roster for the new DPC season.

Peter ‘ppd’ Dager will stay on as the captain of the team. Joining him is his former teammate from their Evil Geniuses days Saahil ‘Universe’ Arora. The remainder of the squad consists of Gunnar, Skiter and Biver.

Meanwhile, Saksa, 33, Fata and Ace have been released from NiP.

Both ppd and Universe are veterans that have won The International 5 together while the remainder of the squad are widely considered to be unproven yet rising stars on the Dota 2 circuit. The team begins their Bootcamp on the 27th of September in Stockholm, Sweden.

NiP’s full Dota 2 roster is:

1 - Oliver 'Skiter' Lepko

2 - Nico 'Gunnar' Lopez

3 - Saahil ‘Universe’ Arora

4 - Malthe 'Biver' Winther

5 - Peter ‘ppd’ Dager
