NiP have defeated compLexity 2-1 (16-11 on de_dust2_se, 13-16 de_nuke_se, 16-10 de_train_se) to win ESEA Invite Season 14 Global Finals and $20,000.
NiP once again opened up de_dust2_se with an A split that saw them easily take out coL players for a 3-0 lead. A mid-to-B split extended their lead to 5-0, but Braxton "swag" Pierce's four kill made it 1-5.
The Swedes won three more rounds uncontested, but Spencer "hiko" Martin's triple gave coL their second round. Christopher "GeT_RiGhT" Alesund's flank made it 2-9, but then coL mounted a comeback.
The home team first won an A retake, and Kory "semphis" Friesen followed it up with a one-on-two clutch. Friesen and Jordan "n0thing" Gilbert combined for four to make it 5-9, but Adam "friberg" Friberg's triple gave NiP a 10-5 lead for half.
Friesen's four Glock entry kills won compLexity their terrorist pistol round, but Richard "Xizt" Landström's strong play scoring four kills in the next two rounds allowed them to go up 12-8.
Alesund's early double and Friberg's late round triple in B made it 13-8, and after a coL save they were facing a 8-14 deficit. With their backs against the wall, coL mounted a small comeback.
Entries from Martin and Gilbert made it 9-14, and a quick B take saw Robin "Fifflaren" Johansson surrender the site, forcing NiP to save and giving coL their eleventh round.
Martin had a chance to clutch a one-on-two in the next round but was unable to win the round in B, and NiP were able to clinch the first map with a 16-11 score as coL got take out in middle.
Next up was de_nuke_se where compLexity was able to win the highly favored terrorist pistol round, only to be shut down by Patrik "f0rest" Lindberg's P250 at ramp on the following one.
Alesund scored three AK47 kills to make it 3-1, and NiP continued racking up rounds with their momentum, as Gilbert double team killed to make it 5-1 in NiP's favor in a flawless round.
Landström won a one-on-three to make it 7-1 as coL came close to winning a save round, but NiP kept their winning streak going until 10-1 despite Pierce's triple kill at 1-9.
Martin's triple cut the score to 2-10, and Gilbert's entry outside allowed coL to win the thirteenth round. Alesund's triple gave NiP back the momentum, and the Swedes stopped an upper rush to make it 12-3.
compLexity won the pistol as counter-terrorists as well, but NiP once again were able to win the second round, and stole all the momentum as they extended their lead to 13-4.
Against all odds, Gilbert scored two silenced USP kills at ramp and propelled his side to a save round win to keep the North Americans in the game, and start a massive comeback.
After a few close round wins Pierce scored four M4A1-S kills from catwalk to make it 8-13, and two rounds later him and Gilbert won an important two-on-four clutch on the lower site for 10-13.
Sean "sgares" Gares scored four SCAR-20 kills, including a one-on-two, to make it 12-13, and a double from Pierce tied the game at thirteen. Gares then added two SCAR kills to give coL its first lead at 14-13.
compLexity completed the massive comeback winning twelve straight rounds as Gilbert scored two huge M4A1-S kills to make it 15-13, and Martin's triple secured coL the 16-13 map win versus NiP.
Friesen started de_train_se strong with three USP-S kills in the inner site, but NiP managed a bombplant on both of the first two rounds. Third round saw NiP attack outer, and Alesund's double gave the Swedes their first round of the third map.
Friberg's triple at alley tied the game at two, forcing coL to save. Gilbert and Gares combined for four to tie the game again, but Johansson's two health one-on-one win forced coL on another save round.
Down 3-5, the American side started a comeback once again, first stopping NiP's outer attack, followed by Gares and Martin splitting up the opposing team to tie the game once more.
compLexity would win three more straight rounds, including a two-on-three where Pierce scored three frags, and an outer rush stopped by Friesen and Martin getting two a piece.
Early picks allowed NiP to win their sixth round after, but Gares brought out his trusty SCAR-20 for two kills on the inner bombsite to clinch his side a 9-6 win as counter-terrorists.
The Swedes stopped coL's outer rush on the pistol round, and quickly tied the game at nine. Alesund won a one-on-one versus Friesen thanks to patient play, and then got two early kills to make it 11-9.
Next two rounds included a coL save and saw NiP extend its lead to 13-9 before Gilbert's three AK47 headshots gave his side its tenth round. Ultimately it wasn't enough, as Johansson clinched the series with a triple AWP kill at 16-10.
ESEA Invite Season 14 Global Finals standings:
1. NiP - $20,000
2. compLexity - $8,000 & qualified for ESWC

Hiko and semphis are good still and n0thijg and swag are sick hs machines that can turn rounds. Add skadoodle and they'd be really good.
I'm a washed up moviemaker and would admit this, sure.
I also make bad decisions at times, sure.
And I'm biased like anyone else, sure.
But I'm still here in the community because it's a place I enjoy and try to find other meaningful ways to help grow the scene with media by helping new moviemakers, working with Invite players (i.e. Hiko) to produce content together, encouraging cooperation with other organizations (i.e. the very site that you love to troll on 24/7) to facilitate each other so as to not continue fighting for scraps (IMO) and many things that I simply don't want or need attention for.
Unfortunately it's 24/7 retards (in the proper sense) like you that slow down and ultimately stifle growth in our community by driving away potentially new players who may read all of your previous comments which are all purely negative in tone.
In addition way to call out someone for being biased to a player and blatantly admit you're on multiple players' nuts yourself with no shame. Then again I expected nothing less, really.
Nice age fetish to boot, bro. Looks like 18/19 is your age limit.
So I do apologize if swag is getting older for your sick, demented tastes you backwards, inbred, troll fuck.
too bad hes deaded to CoD
maybe they werent so good as taz or neo but they made frags when the team were in trouble.......
You can't compare the Golden Five with any other team, they had perfect chemistry and teamwork, NiP doesn't. Also, loord and kuben weren't so bad as fifflaren. Even esenin on Na'Vi used to do a better job than fifflaren is doing.
He's a lot of levels below the rest of his team.
they are still top1 but it can change soon
For sure :D
Gotta work on nuke_se or they'll lose 2-16 again.
also shit lel @ Fifflaren
imo they are better than other because they started to train before anyone else and they have gtr and forest, and as you should know they were top2 and top3 in 1.6.....
also there are not many OLD top teams in csgo, there is only nip, vg
other retired or players changed their teams...
csgo wont be bigger than 1.6........

One thing I did notice though is n0thing lets his guard day way too often. I notice he consistently manages to pull a nade out or turn away from a chokepoint at really bad times, it gets him killed quite a lot.
If he was a little less twitchy/fidgety he would get loads more kills imo. Especially in those situations where he sicks a sick HS or nice pick, then he reacts by pulling a nade instantly and dies, or something similar.
The casting,stream and interviews where all well done and enjoyed them all but only thing that was lacking was the quality in games.
The most exciting matches I watched was the na vs na games, especially the ones with moe and shahzam.

dust is the worst i can't believe ESEA brought him back.. i like vansilli but he doesn't know anything about GO. dunn acting like a know it all when he doesn't even play GO and thinking he's great friends with all the players when he's not just annoys me.
i wish they had people who actually played CS at a professional level like cArn, threat, lurppis, etc to cast, instead of people who have no idea what's going on during a match. or at the very least have a play-by-play guy and an ex pro to cast instead of 2 casters who have never even played the game at a semi-professional level.
that's just my opinion though..
Fifflaren as allways bad (I know it is not simple to be better then rest of his superteam)
