NiP has clinched a first place and $12,000 at RaidCall EMS One Spring 2013 Finals with a 2-0 (16-6 de_dust2_se, 16-7 de_nuke_se) win over fnatic in the grand final.
Patrik "f0rest" Lindberg opened up the grand final with four kills on the terrorist side pistol round of de_dust2_se. Lasse "stingeR" Midstue's two kills gave NiP a scare, but they survived it to gain a 3-0 lead.
Fourth round say Adam "friberg" Friberg score two entry kills in the middle, matched up by Andreas "Xyp9x" Højsleth, but ultimately it was once again Lindberg who came out on top with a one-on-two clutch.
fnatic then lost control of the B site quickly and were only able to save a gun, as NiP chased them down for a 6-0 lead. The Swedes went up 8-0 before Martin "trace" Heldt's four M4A4 kills gave fnatic a round.
NiP quickly broke fnatic's money by taking over catwalk for a 9-1 lead, and a win versus a save round made it 10-1. The Danes had a chance to get back into the game as they won the next round, but Robin "Fifflaren" Johansson's one-on-two clutch forced fnatic on yet another save.
The Ninjas ran their lead up to 12-2 before fnatic won the final round of the half, thanks to a triple kill from Michael "Friis" Jørgensen, to give them some breathing room with a 3-12 score.
The team in black and orange won the terrorist pistol and despite NiP's shotgun buys got a 3-0 lead of their own to start the half, but once again it was Lindberg who ruined the party with three kills on round four.
Alesund then pushed lower B tunnels for two kills of his, Johansson scored four kills versus a save round to give them map point and and Friberg together with Alesund clutched a two-on-two to end the map with a comfortable 16-6 win.
NiP continued rolling on de_nuke_se as they quickly opened up the map with a terrorist pistol win and a 3-0 lead despite fnatic's third round MAG7 buy with a saved Galil.
The Swedes took out fnatic's defense on the fourth round, and Jørgensen wasn't able to get kills with his AWP on the following two rounds either, as NiP extended their lead to 6-0.
Lindberg & co won one more reasy round before fnatic stepped in with five round of their own, including a round where NiP ran out of time and an unsuccessful one-on-three attempt by Alesund.
Johansson broke fnatic's streak with a one-on-one clutch of his own to make it 5-8, and Heldt lost a one-on-two next round. Last round of the half saw fnatic get an easy win for a 6-9 half.
The Danes were completely shut down on their ramp push pistol round by NiP, and two saves quickly made the score 6-12 before Midstrue's one-on-two heroics gave fnatic their only round of the half.
Alesund won an important one-on-two situation in the lower bombsite against two low health fnatic players for game point, and the game ended with Johansson taking down Midstue for their sixteen round win at 16-7.

So good u admit without doubt that u are not 1 of us.
fnatic doing good job
TOP2 at madcatz and now on EMS is a very good
but still need more time and pracc
Wow, great job, congratz!
madcatz fnatic got lucky too?
they beat WW two times but lose to VG
now same situation ,fnatic now in TOP5 for sure
deal with it
deal with it
3. WW / VG
but it was no good job by fnatic tbh. mediocre even compares with themselves.
NiP vs VG was quite more interesting.. but that's a shame no one is still able to give NiP a really GOOD fight except for Virtus.pro
VG was close to do it today , but Ex6TenZ was terrible today and VG had some bad calls that made them lose important rounds ... they could actually win dust2 easily unless they made those stupid calls.
I just hope CS:GO will develop faster than it does now .. it becomes quite boring to see NiP matches.
When they won their 12th round :
Ex6 : "We can take the map. But it's nothing, one map is nothing guys, we still have a mountain to climb !"
When they won their 14th round :
Ex6 : "Ok, important round !"
And when they lost the next one, I could hear NiP cheering through their headset...
In comparison to NiP, they are so stressed up it seems like they can't even play their own game.
kennyS won a HUGE round for them when they were on T side defending the bomb on bombsite B , he made some amazing AWP shots and when they won the round, it was their moment - a moment they had to use in order to finish this match to their favour ... and they couldn't do it because of BIG mistakes and bad calls by Ex6TenZ.
VeryGames is a good team , they have some great key players such as ScreaM and kennyS , they can beat NiP .. but they will not be able to do it until they learn to be more calm and make the right calls in crucial rounds.
You know what? I'm not gonna blame nip this time. I'm gonna blame Virtuspro cause they weren't here to stop them.
From now on every boring finale with nip is entirely virtuspro's fault!!!!!
Less precise and thoughtout tactics than the other teams but simply better fraggers who react more instinctively to situations. NIP couldn't pre-prapre for them and would have lost more 1vsX and aim battles.
