The next challenge for the team was Sweden’s Major where the team found itself again and achieved another grand-final, this time against FaZe Clan. In a best of five, all the maps were played but FaZe took the win. In Brasileirão Finals, Ninjas in Pyjamas wasn’t capable to overcome Team Liquid and lost 3-1.
