Ex-professional Ninjas in Pyjamas (NiP) Counter-Strike player Robin “Fifflaren” Johansson has continued to expose the former organization regarding the player mistreatment and lack of payment he and others endured whilst under NiP.
In a slew of Tweets, Johansson claimed that some members of the NiP management including both former NiP manager Emil “HeatoN” Christensenand current-CEO Hicham Chahine are at fault. “Liars, cheaters and crooks,” he said regarding the pair.
Fifflaren continued to expose the financial handling of the management with regards to the players. He said that the two used the player’s money for their own gain which culminated in the pair earning millions. Johansson stated that former Ninjas in Pyjamas player Mikail "Maikelele" Bill got paid as low as 10,500 SEK ($1,086.59) and former Counter-Strike coach Faruk “pita” Pita got paid 7,000 SEK (724.40).

Johansson stated that the money that was earned by the players was sent to a new bank account so no players had access. Finally, Fifflaren then stated that HeatoN tried to ensure he didn’t have to pay his taxes, which is illegal.
The former NiP manager HeatoN then responded on Twitter by stating that these alleged accusations are not true. He will be using Swedish Court records to back up his point. This response is expected to come soon.
A former member of the NiP management and founder Tommy ”Potti” Ingemarsson asked Fifflaren on Twitter to ensure that no former members who were not involved with his situation get hurt because of the recent drama. Fifflaren responded by telling his fans that Potti is not guilty by association. He claimed that we should focus on who the real villains of the story are.
