The Swedish Ninjas are in imminent danger of being knocked out early at IEM Rio.
NIP ended the first day of the Legends Stage with their second defeat of the day. A 16-12 loss to Outsiders sends NIP down to dangerous territory, where they are now only one loss away from being eliminated.
On Mirage it was a close affair against Outsiders, who again could enjoy the solid help from the two new additions to the roster, David 'n0rb3r7' Danielyan and Petr 'fame' Bolyshev. The two young riflers proved to be vital for Outsiders, who finished the match brilliantly by winning the last four rounds.
Outsiders are now 1-1, and will go up against their CIS rivals from Spirit tomorrow.
