With NIP pulling in huge prize money and in-game sticker sales, Breitbart reported that players haven't been paid. NIP started off by denying the claims, saying that it was all "misinformation" and "incorrect conclusions", but followed through with a statement that said it was: "time to bring in new people with more suitable properties, skills and experience to lead Ninjas in Pyjamas in the future".

NIP added: "As CEO of a company Per is the individual ultimately responsible for the business, and since he is a pragmatic person he accept[ed] responsibility for the mistakes that have been made. It is time to bring in new people with more suitable properties, skills and experience to lead Ninjas in Pyjamas in the future. The business and industry has changed, it is time to take it to the next level".
