NiP to grand final after ESC scare
Time: 2013-02-24 17:45
Game: Counter-Strike: Global Offensive

Ninjas in Pyjamas have scored a 2-0 (16-8 de_dust2_se, 16-12 de_inferno_se) win over ESC Gaming, escaping to the Mad Catz CS:GO Invitational grand final still undefeated on LAN.

Series kicked off on de_dust2_se where ESC scored the first four rounds. NiP tied the game quickly at four, but after ESC's fifth round, the Swedes won six more in a row, switching sides at 10-5.

The Poles were able to put up a couple of more rounds in the second half, but were ultimately unable to match NiP's first half, losing the half 3-6 as they fell 8-16 overall.

NiP faced some serious issues early on during their counter-terrorist campaign on second map de_inferno_se, as Filip "NEO" Kubski's squad showing their trademark strong terrorist play to go up 9-3.


HeatoN's team is through to yet another grand final 

Although the Swedes won just one more round that half, ESC wouldn't be able to hold on to the lead. Wiktor "TaZ" Wojtas' team won the first gun round to make it 12-7 after a lost pistol, and from there on out it was all NiP.

ESC were able to pick up a couple of kills on many rounds, but strong performances and multiple clutch situations by the Swedes were simply too much to handle for the Polish side.

After Robin "Fifflaren" Johansson's one-on-one win in the B bombsite, NiP walked into the A site through counter-terrorist side on the twenty-eighth round and secured their sixteenth round win for a 16-12 score.

Really liked this match. Clever play from both teams but nip is just incredible. Fifflaren and Friberg had a really good match.

thats why im typing hahahahahahahahaha
2013-02-24 18:01:20
1) they weren't bad...NiP was just too good !...

2) Are u even swedish brah ?

2013-02-24 17:58:24
1) its extremly bad to lose a game when ur in lead with 11-4 on the bad side.

2) Självfallet.
2013-02-24 18:00:59
inferno really isnt favoured for any side, especially when top teams play its almost 50/50. if pistolrounds were not won by Ts everytime because of how good glock is it would maybe be CT-sided
2013-02-24 18:18:41
"on the bad side", dont try to sound smart. Terrorist side is always better on LAN with high noise (+ you cant hear where people are coming from in this shit game).

2013-02-24 18:18:51
Hope anexis beat vg like in groupstage to see esc-vg in small final
2013-02-24 18:00:34
another NiP-VG clash upcoming
2013-02-24 18:01:22
Would like to see stats from this match here :)

WP ESC, maybe next time!

2013-02-24 18:02:26
gg. NiP is very strong but ESC getting stronger.
It's my opinion :)
2013-02-24 18:03:26
hahah heatoNNN~
2013-02-24 18:06:07
Scare of what? oO they had the game under control it seems
2013-02-24 18:24:21
Did u watched inferno
2013-02-24 18:35:45
I did, and they seemed to have it totally under control, and they did.
2013-02-24 19:10:40
Sure after 11-4
2013-02-24 20:24:37
They were losing 13.2 vs VG online, and they won 16-13, your point?
2013-02-24 21:11:58
that they were scared by VG as well.
2013-02-24 21:38:56
Actually it would be a scare IF the score was 1-1, and they were in risk of actually losing. But winning 1-0, beeing behind 11-4, hows that a scare if youre NiP lol come on
2013-02-24 21:39:58
scare of losing 2nd map bro, not the match.
2013-02-24 21:41:57
I know but my point is the titlle is sooooo misleading and not very true tbh, i mean, was just 1 map and it wasnt really a scare like not like ESC had 14 or 15 rounds
