NiP rolls past Nostalgie
Time: 2013-02-24 11:38
Game: Counter-Strike: Global Offensive

As easily as expected Ninjas in Pyjamas made their way past Nostalgie in the quarter-final of Mad Catz Invitational 2-0 (16-2 on de_nuke_se and 16-5 on de_dust2_se).

The Russian-Ukrainian mix team didn't really expect anything from their quarter-final clashwith NiP judging from their demeanor and they didn't get anything out of it in the end.

They started on de_nuke_se and NiP was already at an advantage after winning the knife round and getting to start on the CT-side. As soon as they begun, Richard "Xizt" Landström aced in the pistol round with a P2000 and things only got worse for the Russians from then on.

Round after round the Swedish giants rolled their opponents over, allowing them to win only 2 in the first half, and as it would turn out, in the match. The second pistol round could have went the Russians' way, but NiP won a 3-on-5 situation which consequently led to a 16-2 win on the first map.


Xizt & co. make their way into the semi-finals

These two teams met in the first group stage yesterday as well, and Nostalgie's map choice was the same as then, de_dust2_se. They lost 16-8 on day one, but it seemed that NiP now put their game face on and that the Russians had somewhat given up, as testified by the Swedes' 14-1 first half lead as CTs. Six rounds later this quick match was finished and NiP ended up victorious 16-5, securing a place in the semi-final.

NiP is just too good.
Another ez lan for them.

Now there is NiP and the others, not NiP and VG and the others.
I was hoping really that VG could now take on with NiP, I don't understand what happened to them.

It's sad for the scene, NiP is just too f*cking strong.
