Ninjas in Pyjamas have announced that they have decided against attending the Gaming Paradise.
The Swedish giants had been one of the first teams to receive an invitation to compete at the Gaming Paradise, a week-long videogame festival that will be held in the Slovenian coastal settlement of Portorož from September 6-13.
No explanation for the decision was given by NiP, but it is possible that the move was caused by a conflicting schedule between the Gaming Paradise and the recently-announced ESL ESEA Dubai Invitational, which kicks off on September 10, just 24 hours after the Slovenian tournament has ended.

There are now three spots available in this $50,000 CS:GO tournament, which will be filled through invites handed out by Gaming.rs - the organisers of the competition.
This means that the list of participants for the Gaming Paradise currently looks as follows:
