  • Young Ninjas know they have rivals who can surprise but they are not going to end the league without entering at least the top-3.

  • When ztr first came to the NIP, he was surprised how professional this organization is in dealing with everything, even small problems.

  • Before phzy was invited to YN, he knew most of his teammates. According to him, "he often played with them."

  • Some Young Ninjas players understand the prestige of their tag and think that their team is the season’s favorite.
