Ninjas in Pyjamas have parted ways with Murilo "Muzi" Moscatelli following the team's underwhelming performance in the Brazil League 2024 Stage 1. The Brazilian joined the roster in March 2019 and is ending his chapter in the Swed organization five years later.

The 23-year-old posted a message on X (formerly known as Twitter) shortly after the announcement regarding the decision and his future, which we translated:

Farewell. Greetings guys, as you have seen, I am out of NIP. It was an incredible experience, since I joined when I was 18 years old I always wanted to win the world championship, the Invitational, and having made that dream come true with NIP is very special for me. Thank you Julio, Pino, Psycho, Kamikaze, Wizard, Knodz, Arthur, Mity, TchubZ, Bob, and all our fans. I appreciate a lot the chance that NIP gave me and everything we lived through these five years, it was a surreal experience. Despite the good and bad moments, today I feel like I only have good memories. I chose to leave because I felt that we were a bit stagnated as a team, with problems that would always repeat. At the same time, I felt like a pause would do me good. I believe that the entrance of a new player can give the team a boost and we have a good chance of seeing NIP leading again. I appreciate the fans, the love, and support during these years, it was a great experience for me! You can be sure every day was important to me and it never lacked will and dedication. I count on you for future projects, as a content creator or a professional player, we will see what the future holds for us. Thank you!

It's difficult to understand what Ninjas in Pyjamas have achieved in Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege without mentioning the Brazilian. Despite missing out on the PL Season 9 Finals and a group stage elimination at the Six Major Raleigh, Muzi helped his team to qualify for Tokoname, Japan, and reach the grand finals of the Six Invitational 2020. One year after that, Muzi was chosen as one of the EVPs of the Six Invitational 2021, where Ninjas in Pyjamas became the first Brazilian world champions.

Eventually, Muzi would reach another international grand final as Ninjas in Pyjamas lost against FaZe Clan in the final match of the Six Sweden Major. Since then, the team has gone through multiple roster and staff changes without being able to reach the consistency seen in previous seasons. Following a 12th - 9th place at the Six Invitational 2024 and the team's ninth-place finish in the Brazil League 2024 Stage 1, Muzi is putting an end to his chapter as a Ninja.
