NiP have won the battle of Sweden versus Lemondogs 2-0 (16-11 de_inferno_se, 16-4 de_dust2_se) to win DreamHack Bucharest 2013 and $7,500.
Lemondogs started the DreamHack grand final with a very aggressive push down the middle as counter-terrorists on de_inferno_se, and managed to catch NiP completely off guard.
Christopher "GeT_RiGhT" Alesund ruined the party soon after though, as he scored four kills, including a one-on-two win, in the following save round, turning the economy back in their favor.
Jerry "xelos" Råberg and Isak "cype" Rydman put up two frags each to tie the game, but it wouldn't last for long as the Ninjas shifted to a higher gear, winning six unanswered rounds.
Faruk "pita" Pita and Simon "twist" Eliasson won Lemondogs a B bombsite retake for their third round, and Robin "Fifflaren" Johansson scored his first frag a round later in a lost one-on-two with Rydman coming out on top.
Now up 8-4, Alesund took matters to his own hands yet again and scored an ace with his AK47, once again shifting momentum in NiP's favor and leading to three easy round wins.
Patrik "f0rest" Lindberg's triple wasn't enough on the second pistol round as Eliasson kept LD's hopes alive by taking him out with a Glock headshot in the A bombsite. NiP attempted their standard two shotgun save round, but fell to a 0-3 start.
NiP got back on top on the fourth round, as Richard "Xizt" Landström's double opened the round. Marcus "Delpan" Larsson's team then got back into the game by winning the next round, thus forcing NiP on a save.
Now down 9-12, Larsson tried the hero's cape on as he clutched a huge one-on-two situation in B in a triple kill round, once again breaking NiP's economy and bringing the score to 11-12.
In the deciding round of the map, Adam "friberg" Friberg and Landström secured a two-on-two retake in the A site, and the captain then followed it up by key frags from his signature spot on the balcony.
NiP wasted no time in securing a 1-0 map lead as Lindberg and Friberg split the pot to get map point, and Lindberg teamed up with Landström on the final round to clinch a 16-11 win on de_inferno_se.
Lindberg scored a triple kill on the counter-terrorist pistol round of de_dust2_se, and NiP rode it for a 3-0 lead before surrendering a round and having to pause the game due to Pita crashing.
Once game continued Alesund attempted to knife Larsson in a three-on-one that almost cost his team a round, and forced NiP to save after LD were able to take the following round.
Saving didn't stop NiP though, as Alesund scored three kills to shift the momentum back in their favor at 5-2. Lindberg won an AWP duel versus ex-teammate Larsson next, but his team still came up short.
Next round Larsson took down Johansson, who was trying to cross the double doors, and added another kill on top of A to make it 4-5, with Lindberg saving his AWP for the next round.
That AWP wound up being costly as Lindberg's two kills won NiP another save round. Friberg added a triple AK47 kill a few rounds later to make it 9-4, and another triple, including a one-on-one win, in the final round.
Up 11-4 after the harder side of the map, NiP simply cruised to a comfortable 16-4 win on de_dust2_se to clinch the DreamHack Bucharest 2013 title with a 2-0 win over Lemondogs.
DreamHack Bucharest 2013 final standings:
1. NiP - $7,500
2. Lemondogs - $4,500 + DreamHack Winter spot
3-4. Astana Dragons - $1,500
3-4. Natus Vincere - $1,500
5-8. Copenhagen Wolves
NiP are the defending DreamHack champions so they already hold a spot for the tournament, so the DreamHack Winter spot up for grabs in Bucharest was given to runner-ups Lemondogs instead.
DreamHack Bucharest may be over, but we're still in the process of adding more photos and plenty of highlight clips from the tournament. You can find full statistics here.
that's unbelievable how boring this tournament was :S

NiP is 60% 1.6ers,
NaVi is somewhere 60-100% 1.6ers,
Lemondogs is 80%(?) 1.6ers,
I would say that is mostly 1.6ers my friend,
however my predictions might not be accurate :p
I was hoping that they would go to the finals
:( they were well prepared.
Who cares. New game, new rules. I would say it has more to do with these player's determination to win matches rather than, them being some sort of 'gods' because they played 1.6 before.
16 1.6er's & 4 saucers probably. People will now start fighting about how this is only one tournament and all.
But I think we should get used to seeing this from here on. Especially a number of NiP vs AD finals from now on.
Lemondogs - 60%
Na`Vi - 100%
AD - 100%
VG - 0%
fnatic - 100%
CPH - 40%
n!faculty - 60%
but counting how many people are coming from either 1.6 or source is just plain stupid. Get over with this 1.6 and source war.
are you just being indian?

CSGO has a shit scene and shit production team nowadays.
I really think something needs to happen before CSGO ... u know.
Valve doesn't read this site but if this game doesn't get major changes this game will not live for long, I don't see this game in competitive scene after the next 1-2 year(s).
Other teams just needs to step the fuck up and act like true professionals

This game needs updates and fast, no fucking chickens and all that clusterfuck!
Tagging, wallbanging, improved movement not just ADAD faggotlike sprays, autosniper nerfs, pistol nerfs, shotgun nerfs this game needs a lot of fixes!
NiP won over AD for few reasons and here are some:
1. They won most of the pistol rounds and actually games were close and I'm sure if Edward would be like he was in 1.6 AD would be #1 right now.
2. They bought AUTOSNIPERS how fucking professional is that?
3.Edward/dosia were not doing shitall in inferno besides CT side for edward...
This game needs MAJOR UPDATES for some MAJOR TOURNAMENT to pick this shit up and finally get players in it.
VOLVO IF U HEAR ME THEN DO WHAT I SAID!

Are you serious? Why the f should they not use auto's just because they are pro's....
Back in 1.6 u didn't see autosnipers for a reason even though T autosniper was very strong!
a) Buying autosniper is quaranteed 5 kills every round? Wow thanks, I will start winning tournaments tomorrow.
b) The most professional thing would be everyone to use knife only- because it's requires most skill/is the hardest way to kill therefore is the most proffessional.
You should be stupid if u go by ur logic. Did u see this shit in 1.6? No, cause that bullshit wasn't OP.
Mid air jumpshots noscoped no problem (first shot) and was accurate.
And no, it doesn't make NiP less professional because they buy autosnipers. We all play the same game and all players/teams have the right to buy autosniper if they want to.
It is not 1.6 and some of the new weapons are strong, better get used to it ;)
I dont really get your logic. Put it to good effect by doing airshots? How is that putting it to good effect.
I think you need to get out of your biased mindset and realize that CS 1.6 also had its flaws (autosniper wise) and it was just as OP as the CT autosniper in CSGO. You dont see people in CSGO airshotting from train ladders to backline with the autosniper in CSGO, do you? :P
It may not look "professional" to a spectator when watching someone buying an autosniper, but thats only because it was considered a lame weapon in 1.6 (and probably CSS as well). It is actually a really strong weapon and I think you'll just have to get used to that. People will ofcourse use weapons that are good, otherwise they are just handicapping themselves.

No realy man how can you post this shit?
I acctually think that tha spay of guns ir realy nice when you take time to learn... And that autosniper part is such rubish! :D
Some ugly virgin playing LoL or DotA in pubs gets more viewers than that.
And I don't understand people who say its boring. CSGO permits the best players to flourish. When other teams starts to act professional then they will be at NIP level.

most unpredictable and exciting matches ever in this game!!

all > 1.6 4ver
3-4. Natus Vincere - $1,500
so good for their first tournament and both almost to the final..
delpan stronk, haters wronk.
To bad there are only three fulltime prof. Teams in CS GO.
Of course Teams need to step it up to bring down NiP, but you can't blame all those Teams, because they don't have a decent salary and can't play that much compared to NiP.
NiP, fnatic, Astana and NaVi are the only organisations who actually can support the players to become good. The others can't.
NiP almost won 165.000 euros in total now. VG on second place won close to 60.000 euros. Don't even need to talk about the other Teams. The difference is so huge. But lurppis already said it. We Need Majors and with higher prize money. CS GO isnt even the biggest competitive FPS game out there. In europe yes but that's it.
Get on the NiP wagon and profit, be awesome and win!
Final as usual not the most exciting one but semis and qfs + some group matches were awesome :)
So-called "top2" VG sucked so bad.
Two new teams finished 3-4th. If they keep improving they will go very far for sure. AD totally has the potential to beat NiP next time. kibaken and seized proved to be really skilled motherfuckers.
Impressive play by Lemondogs, I expected them to go to semifinals easily but not grand final. Good job LD.

bad luck for VG that nip was 2nd in group stage they would be 2nd again :)
3 Astana Dragons
The 1st and 2nd might not stay 1st and 2nd for long anymore taking into consideration the fact how fast AD and NaVi were able to put up good fights and reach the top after so little time together even though they know each other for a while and with not too much of practice time with new line ups...
Now let me sit back, refill my glass of beer and read the angry boiz's replies to my post and laugh at them, if anyone wants to argue with my 13 year CS scene experience...
