Ninjas in Pyjamas won the award for the eSports Team of the Year at the 2014 Game Awards.
The ceremony took place on Friday at the AXIS Theater in Las Vegas and it distinguished the very best of the industry, with the award for the Game of the Year going to BioWare’s Dragon Age: Inquisition.
Ninjas in Pyjamas were in the running for the eSports Team of the Year award, which was determined through fan vote, and the DreamHack Winter runners-up beat League of Legends duo Samsung White and Edward Gaming, as well as Dota 2 duo Evil Geniuses and Newbee, for the honour.
NiP’s Christopher “GeT_RiGhT” Alesund was nominated for the eSports Player of the Year award, which was, however, scooped by Call of Duty hot-shot Matt “NaDeSHoT” Haag.
