NiP hold off Na`Vi to win StarSeries VI
Time: 2013-07-07 19:47
Game: Counter-Strike: Global Offensive

Despite losing the first two maps, NiP managed to hold off Na`Vi and win the SLTV StarSeries VI with a 3-2 score (12-16 on de_dust2_se, 9-16 on de_train_se, 16-8 on de_inferno_se & 16-2 on de_nuke_se) for $6,000.

With SLTV StarSeries VI coming to a close, it was all down to the last two teams – Ninjas in Pyjamas and Natus Vincere in a best-of-five grand final where the Swedes held an automatic 1-0 advantage due to winning the upper bracket.

The first map was Na`Vi's selection de_dust2_se, on which they started as the CTs. However, as usual at this event where Ts won 5 out of 6 pistols on dust2, NiP rushed together and secured the early 3-0 lead.

Sergey "starix" Ischuk scored 3 kills in the B bombsite during the first buy round and his in-game leader Danylo "Zeus" Teslenko won a 1-on-1 in the next round to make it 3-2.


Zeus needed to lead his team to 3 map wins in the final

The teams started exchanging rounds back and forth, until NiP finally pulled away to 6-4 and forced the Ukrainians to have an eco. However, a saved AWP by Yegor "markeloff" Markelov opened up their eco round and propelled Na`Vi to win it, making the score 6-5.

Christopher "GeT_RiGhT" Alesund replied right away with the lone AK47 and his 3 kills, helping NiP pull away again with 7-5, after which Patrik "f0rest" Lindberg clutched a 1-on-2 in the A bombsite to make the score 8-5.

The last couple of rounds were exchanged for 9-6, while Alesund sat on a 19:9 score. Following the side swapping, Na`Vi desperately needed the pistol round win and they applied similar tactics as NiP by rushing out mid and splitting their opponents' defense, eventually leading to a 9-9 tie.

Neither team allowed the other to pull away as the score was even at 10-10 and 11-11 before Ioann "Edward" Sukhariev used an AWP he picked up from his fallen teammate Markelov to score 3 kills and force NiP to eco for 13-11.

The Swedes seemed to be getting back again by taking the 25th round, but Na`Vi's 3-on-4 win afterwards put NiP in a bad economic position and sealed the map with a 16-12 score.


Na`Vi started looking like their old selves

Moving onto de_train_se the Ukrainians carried the momentum over to their  T side and Ischuk outaimed Alesund in a 1-on-1 that could have went either way to give Na`Vi the better start.

First buy round saw Robin "Fifflaren" Johansson pick up 3 kills with an AWP, which kickstarted NiP's five round winning streak, including a quite fortunate win in the key round no.5 when Markelov failed to plant the C4 in time.

Teslenko brought the momentum back with his excellent 4-kill outside, and two rounds later Markelov and Sukhariev won a 2-on-2 to establish money control for the Ukrainians. They went on to win the half with a 9-6 lead, which turned into 10-6 despite double entry by Adam "friberg" Friberg in the second pistol round.

NiP bought in the 3rd round, but only managed to get back on the scoreboard in the one after that thanks to Lindberg's 3 kills in a close-round situation.

With the score standing at 12-7, Na`Vi went on a double eco to secure full equipment for themselves, and it made all the difference as they went on to win out the remaining rounds with more than solid defensive setups – 16-9.

Now facing defeat by being down 1-2 in maps, NiP shifted into the next gear and started with an aggressive push on the CT side of de_inferno_se to go up 3-0 after Friberg's 1vs1 against an early buy.

Na`Vi got on the board in round 5, but paid a high price in the next one when they failed to convert a 5-on-2 situation courtesy of Lindberg's 3 fast kills in A.

The still somehow managed to reduce the deficit to 5-3, and then Markelov had two 1-on-3s in the B bombsite in a row, losing the first and winning the second to force NiP to eco at 6-4.

However, the Swedes then adjusted their B bombsite defense and went on to shut down the remaining attacks for a 10-5 lead at the half. An aggressive apartments setup gave Na`Vi some hope as they brought it back to 10-7 after than pistol, but NiP won the eco round and the first buy after another great round by Lindberg for 12-7.


f0rest had a number of key rounds in this match

Nail in the coffin was put by Alesund who played his 1-on-2 perfectly, which put NiP on match point at 15-7, and two rounds later saw them walk away with a 16-8 win.

Knowing that map four will be de_nuke_se, the match was practically settled at that point seeing as Na`Vi don't play or practice that map at all, and despite a promising start after Sukhariev's 1-on-3 in the T-side pistol round, the Ukrainians lost the anti-eco right after which paved way for NiP's easy victory.

Markelov's AWP finally helped his team win round 10 for a 2-8 deficit, but Friberg and Alesund clutched two 1-on-1s in a row to get things back on track and win the half 13-2 (Alesund 24:6). No surprises took place after sides were changed, and the Swedes went on to win the map 16-2, and thus clinch another title.

I do?
So why you thik I should read your shit?

2013-07-08 09:48:16
Let me put it this way. when NaVi fanboys attacking us. I do the same. So deal with it and fuck off.
2013-07-08 15:53:57
Then you the same idiot like those fanboys.
Because you insult other people which not involved in your retarded wars.
2013-07-08 18:07:04
Sorry I was maybe too harsh. Buy you have a point there.
2013-07-08 18:09:10

2013-07-07 19:53:50
dude I wouldnt be so happy about this :D
On Train , Dust2 Na`Vi won without any problem
On Inferno Na`Vi could have won it , they lost so many important rounds when there were more Na`Vi players alive
And On Nuke , Its nuke lol Na`Vi had to lose
But still they could have fought for this if they won that eco rounds and that 5v2 round , they would have 4-5 as T and as CT they would fight
The point is that Cointoss decided this final , if it was mirage I doubt NiP would win it.
2013-07-07 20:03:54
Why wouldnt I be happy? lol win is a win, so im happy either way. If NaVi would have won i wouldnt be mad and immature like ukrainians. I would say well done.

Yeah, they COULD have won it but they didnt.
How do you know if it was mirage NaVi would have won? The game was never played on that map. If you can see the future tell if im going to be a millionaire, thank you.
2013-07-07 20:56:46
I will explain u why
Na`Vi and VP both won NiP on this map this tournament + Na`Vi won VP ~16-5 16-6 on mirage
Im not saying its 100% but its 70% atleast
2013-07-07 21:31:04
That doesnt explain it at all.
2013-07-07 21:33:50
The point is that Na`Vi won the maps they trained and thats the most important thing
2013-07-07 21:49:48
But they didnt won the final, which is more importent.
2013-07-07 21:52:12
Thats not . Na`Vi and their fans (not fanboys) arent dissapointed and worried about this . They trained inferno just a bit and nuke didnt train at all thats the only 2 maps that they lost , but basically they won their trained maps that means their plans work and Im sure next time their inferno will be at a much better level
2013-07-07 21:59:12
Winning a final is much more important. Their confidence will be higher, the scene will be much more exiting and they win money.
2013-07-07 22:24:15
Didnt train on 2 of about 6 maps that tourneys are played on about 1 year into the game? Just sounds like a bad excuse. Non the less, really nice too se navi back in the top competing with the best, the scene needs it.
2013-07-07 22:54:00
They dont even practice nuke in 1.6 as well. It's an auto ban for them. Well it's different in this case, since csgo has more maps played.

Not an excuse but that's just how Navi are.
2013-07-08 09:38:23
Pretty stupid if you ask me, your only as strong as your weakest map and neglecting nuke who gets played in almost every series of games, well it's just not good enough for a pro team.
2013-07-08 13:12:58
Well I dont think so, focusing on your strength instead weakness is not bad.

in 1.6 they are known to be best in train and tuscan also strong in dust2 and inferno, they always veto nuke in every occasions. But like I said, csgo is different since it has more maps, and their inferno is not as strong as it used to be.
2013-07-08 13:46:20
Well obviously that tactic doesnt work as they have to play nuke from time to time, praccing away your weaknesses seems like a far better idea if you want to become the best.
2013-07-08 18:17:42
I don't know, maybe they think it was worth it. But they clearly need to improve their other map(inferno) if they want to continue to play it this way.

Btw, isnt this the first time they played nuke? This time they was forced to play it because of the coin flip right?
2013-07-09 06:52:05
So they are going to let coinflips decide their success in future tourneys?
2013-07-09 17:29:03
as far as I know, Starseries is the only event doing this method(only for 4th map). Like I said, they always vetoed nuke when they had the chance. This one was unfortunate for them.

2013-07-07 19:56:59
yeah, you said it like "oh poor Na'Vi, how can someone want them to play nuke, its not map worth such a team" -_-
2013-07-07 19:59:11
I dont understand you?
2013-07-07 20:04:27
A world class team should be able to play nuke.
2013-07-07 23:57:24
Navi have never been fans of nuke and they were the best 1.6 team ever
2013-07-08 02:15:13
No, they are not.They could only dominate one year, partly due to they were raped on de_nuke against every team.we can say that they are one of the best but not the best
2013-07-08 04:37:41
Yeah i meant to say one of the best..
2013-07-08 18:41:58
that's just stupid, they were not the best 1.6 team ever.. not even top3
2013-07-08 10:55:22
lol who cares that they are not fans of nuke ... they are fucking pros and they got paid for playing, so I dont see such a problem to learn how to play few maps ... and 1 year of domination doesnt make you best 1.6 team
2013-07-09 20:29:30
Fuck off cunt
2013-07-09 21:32:36
truth hurts

CS:GO had 60k viewer peak in this tournament which is the highest it has ever been and you're saying it's dying? You're stuck in the past, 1.6 is dead, deal with it.

2013-07-09 15:51:41
not today na'vi, but soon. too many mistakes on inferno and then after losing a coinflip - no motivation.
2013-07-07 19:50:33
I wished they would play mirage instead of inferno or nuke, but yeah.
2013-07-07 19:50:42
Very easy game for NiP, the game werent exiting.
2013-07-07 19:50:47

2013-07-07 19:50:58
Anyway, if these finals would be best of three system, Na`Vi would win already. GG NiP, lucky that it was nuke, not mirage. NiP got destroyed on they're one of the best maps - train.
2013-07-07 19:52:00
+1 u right
2013-07-07 19:53:26
Sure, IF.

If NaVi just stopped being retarded and actually pracced nuke. They can only blame themselves.

If you dont practice you dont even deserve the win.
2013-07-07 19:58:02
They have given up the map long ago. They're just run out of luck this time.
2013-07-08 09:43:02
But it wasn't a bo3 system and navi still haven't won jackshit in cs:go and just got raped 16:2 in the final map trololol
2013-07-07 20:01:37
So winning versus Ninjas 16:9 in they're probably 2nd best map - train isn't worth anything? 16:12 on dd2 to, isn't worth anything? All right.
2013-07-07 20:03:39

2013-07-07 21:26:36
1 problem here. Csgo is the worst game ever created (after LoL). So dead game is still like 100004746362 times better. So count it
2013-07-07 22:46:36
IF this is NOT a double elimination, NAVI's been eating potatoes in their kitchen since Friday, correct ?
2013-07-07 20:22:19
True. Anyway, Na`Vi outplayed NiP, definitely in two maps.
2013-07-07 20:26:37
Definitely very well played by them, i'm pretty happy to see close matches between all the top teams. But using IF is irrelevant, IF it was bo3, NIP might have had a different mindset/pressure.

2013-07-07 19:52:03
what ? the fault is on navi side for not training nuke ! evry team that plays navi is going 2 vote nuke from this point on till they traint nuke
2013-07-07 19:52:11
actually navi will always veto nuke, as they always did :)
2013-07-07 19:55:51
Na'vi are generally good on nuke, look at how many chances they've had to win rounds, it's not that they have bad tactics or they haven't trained on nuke, it's simply bad decisions that were made. Those small mistakes gave NiP a win. I believe the first half would have been somewhere NiP 10-5 Na'Vi or even 9-6.

They've just misread NiP in some situations. And it's nothing unexpected, Na'Vi don't know NiP as well as VP does.
2013-07-07 19:57:46
they are vetoing nuke for about 3+years now so no...
2013-07-07 23:06:42
Na'Vi fanboy after 2:0 lead - hahaha, Na'Vi top 1 world easy
Na'Vi fanboy after LOSE - damn nuke :'(

wake up kids
2013-07-07 19:52:33
dont think anyone actually meant NaVi top 1 but defo now in top 10 for sure
2013-07-07 19:56:11
they are top3-4 now I would say, but I was so upset when I read these comments (and hell a lot) like it was gg already
2013-07-07 20:04:01
those are the same idiots that say VG>VP and VP>NiP
therefore VG>NiP. There are always kids with those comments or threads. Even though they lost and it's their fault for not practising that map, It was not an easy win for NiP and Na´Vi proved what they are capable of and certainly would have been way more interesting if they have played mirage and ended up with a 16-14 for either NiP or Na`Vi.
2013-07-07 20:04:07
I know they did pretty well, overall they played better I would say and certainly deserved to win ... I'm not a fanboy of neither of them (not even GO in general, I just like these guys from 1.6) ... and yeah excuse that Na'Vi don't play nuke is stupid ... same what they did in 1.6 and it cost them countless titles
2013-07-07 20:06:41
of course, besides without tuscan it was even more probable to play nuke. I think they deserved to win not only because of their skill but because it's pretty evident they practiced so hard just by watching their Train this match. In their opening match on thursday they lost 16-2 against NiP and now they came and win it only 3 days afterwards. I think NiP will wonder what would have happened if they had played mirage.
2013-07-07 20:14:06
nip would have taken 16-0 if they have had played mirage
2013-07-08 06:46:59
Ok, and you are basing that fact in the match played on thursday where NaVi actually won mirage 16-13. Also, given the fact that they defeated NiP on train 16-9, a map where they perform with excelence and a map that on thursay NiP easily won it 16-2. NaVi despite what happened on nuke came heavily prepared and train proves that. I didn't even say NaVi would have won it but it wouldn't have been 16-0 for sure. Instead of writing those kinds of comments that make you look like a retarded 14 year-old fanboy, give facts and REAL opinions instead writing comments like NiP easily 16-0.
2013-07-08 07:09:27
da fuq dude, u and ur navi is stupid in first hand. Why the fuck they dont practice nuke at all when every other teams in the world practices it? if they r as dumb as this that they dont know nip would select nuke for a map then i ve nothing to say. And how the fuck they deserve more than nip? a team who has been winning almost everything since the release of go is less deserving than a team who have hardly won anything? Nip r the true champions so they r the one who deserved it and got it in the end. First navi should learn to know the basics that nuke map is also there and has been played since 1.6
i just posted nip 16 - navi 0 just becoz fanboy like u give too much excuses to navi for having to play the game in nuke.
2013-07-08 08:29:47
you clearly are an idiot for just because of not understanding the difference between a fanboy like you, someone that says that if they had played mirage it would have been 16-0 even though NaVi won their last encounter on that map and me, a FAN someone who says that NaVi should have practised nuke. Why did I say they "deserved" to win? It was surely not because I'm a NaVi fan but because it was pretty evident they trained so hard and after seeing how they played on de_train, a map NiP is very good and considering that last time they played it was 3 days ago and ended 16-2 for NiP proves they did practised a lot. Besides I said in previous comments that it was NaVi's fault for not practising nuke, so next time read my previous comments before replying to me. NiP are the true champions? Indeed they are but the fact they were the first team to switch to GO makes a real difference in that and also NaVi were one of the last. The gap there was between NiP and other teams is very little now.
2013-07-08 08:58:26
Doubt they will need to train nuke since Tuscan is gonna be released soon (navi's strongest map)
2013-07-08 09:34:32
Na'Vi is an awesome team, I'm sure that they will beat NiP next time.
2013-07-07 19:53:14
+1
2013-07-07 19:53:16
NiP deserved to win this tournament. Congrats to them. It's also nice to see how other teams are starting to catch up to NiP.
P.S. I really enjoyed Anders and lurppis as casters.
2013-07-07 19:53:25

Fifflaren might be the worst player in the team, but still he had a few good rounds that was equally important in their win. :)

Fifflaren,CONSISTANT as always! Man,you did it,AGAIN.Congrats!!!!!!!!!
2013-07-07 19:54:54
To win nuke it wasn't just about taking key rounds. NaVi would of had to of played a better T or CT side then the best team in the world on one of their best maps without any strats. Lurppis was right all along it just wasn't theoretically possible
2013-07-07 19:55:31
* NiP won - "navi deserved it" "boring"
* if NaVi won - random pointless spam from navi fanboyz all over the hltv, attacking sweden, nip and source players

pretty pathetic a pro team can't be bothered to prac nuke, especially given the size of the map pool.
2013-07-07 19:59:17
I can't see any reason for NaVi to be sad because of that lose. They did a great job, amazing progress!
gratz NiP, lucky it was bo5 with one map advantage...otherwise mirage and NaVi win.

NiP is top1 anyway but now there is a chalenge!

2013-07-07 19:59:28
they smiled even when they were loosing nuke
they knew they wont be able to win nuke and they also know that they're good at CS:GO now :-)
2013-07-07 20:01:30
u right, NiP is going down slowly,all teams are so near to them now
2013-07-07 20:02:28
I don't think NiP are going down, they r just staying at the same level while other teams are catching up finally.
NaVi and VP are simply antistrating them imo.
VG are just too scared of NiP and lose over and over again.
NaVi should prac more nuke and inferno to become equal.
2013-07-07 20:07:33
u right, That's what I wanted to say :)
2013-07-07 20:10:27
navi doesn't play nuke, they dont like this map...
2013-07-07 20:23:43
they should start playing nuke if they want to become No1 team
2013-07-07 20:35:03
Dude VG hasnt played them since their roster change with shox in May.. and at that time only VP had beaten NiP and it was like one time. With their roster change VG has played NiP once and it was an overtime... VG didnt have any mad fragger except NBK so even with good strats they were unable to beat NiP and sometimes even NBK had bad days. Just wait and see...
2013-07-07 20:38:51
no need to wait for me as i don't really care about VG. They are strong but till ex6tence is calling i don't see them owning imo.
Today I'm just glad for NaVi bro-)
2013-07-07 21:24:23
NIP steels StarSeries VI from navi would be a more suitable title imo,because apart from get_right seems like nip was lacking practice as individuals and as a team also,i really hope they will learn their lesson this time and go back to the drawing board because practice,practice,practice is the key and when you are on top there is only one place to go,and its down.

What? They didn't cried and begged NiP to go with mirage, what are you talking about? It was coinflip, nip won = nip won the match.

2013-07-07 20:43:26

u don't fucking say ? ok, i made a typo, so u think "NUKELOFF" is different from "NUKEOFF", enlighten me ? Navi's manner is pathetic, period.

U DON'T go in to the grand final of a serious competition with more or less 60k viewers, alot of ur own FANS, expressing that u don't even want to fight for it (on twitter), changing ur name to capslock as "NUKELOFF" and asking other team to change to a different map.
