Ninjas in Pyjamas won the 2015 edition of Swedish Championship after easing past Acer 2-0 (16-5 on de_train and de_dust2).
With NiP’s debut in DreamHack Summer’s main competition scheduled for Sunday, Richard “Xizt” Landström’s men stepped onto the stage in Jönköping to play the grand final of ESPORTSM, commonly known as the Swedish Championship, against Team Acer, with over $10,000 at stake.
All those who had been looking forward to this match were certainly left disappointed to see Acer field two stand-ins, 1337’s Jonatan “Devilwalk” Lundberg and fragbite reporter André “rich” Åkerblom, instead of Björn “THREAT” Pers and Christian “Spitfire” Schiölde.
NiP succeed fnatic as Swedish champions
The match, which was broadcast live on TV6, was pretty much one-sided from start to finish as NiP quickly disposed of their opponents on two maps while conceding just 10 rounds in total.
