Na`Vi beat NiP to win StarSeries IX
Time: 2014-05-04 19:52
Game: Counter-Strike: Global Offensive

Natus Vincere have won SLTV StarSeries IX Finals with a 2-0 (16-13 de_dust2, 16-8 de_inferno) victory versus Ninjas in Pyjamas for $14,000.

Christopher "GeT_RiGhT" Alesund scored three kills on the opening pistol round to start the grand final, but Danilo "Zeus" Teslenko's one-on-one secured Na`Vi yet another pistol round.

Alesund's Scout kill led to Na`Vi getting picked apart and NiP won round two, forcing Na`Vi on a save. The CIS-based team quickly tied the game with a mid-to-B hit, though allowing three NiP players to save.

Two AWP kills by Robin "Fifflaren" Johansson put NiP up 3-2, but the home team once more replied by taking out NiP's B defense. Next  round saw Alesund best Sergey "starix" Ischuk in a one-on-one.

Then Adam "friberg" Friberg and Patrik "f0rest" Lindberg mowed down Na`Vi's predictable mid-to-B hit, and after one more win NiP were up 6-3. Then problems struck, as Na`Vi won a CZ75 save round.


friberg had some big rounds helping NiP go up 6-3
 

NiP were forced to save, and their A defense was then split from long and catwalk to tie the game with Ioann "Edward" Sukhariev getting two kills. Next round followed the same path, and Na`Vi went into the lead.

Despite Ladislav "GuardiaN" Kovács' pick early on, NiP tied the game with Richard "Xizt" Landström's triple, and went up 8-7 thanks to a pair of kills from both Landström and Alesund.

The Swedes once more went for their quick A attack pistol round, and after a scare on round two, that saw Johansson get three kills to secure NiP the round, they were up 11-7.

Natus Vincere then stopped NiP in A, and Sukhariev's triple in a retake got them within two. Next two rounds went to Sukhariev's side as well, with him scoring two kills to tie it at eleven.


Edward woke up just in time to help Na`Vi come back on de_dust2
 

NiP lost one more round in a row before Johansson and Friberg overcame Denis "seized" Kostin's double to tie it up once more. Then Ischuk's lower B push, and one kill later on, gave Na`Vi control.

The Ninjas had to save, and despite getting three frags were trailing 12-14. Kostin's triple, in a round that saw Na`Vi stack A with five players, saw them gain map point on de_dust2.

NiP survived the first one thanks to Johansson's two kills in a two-on-two at A, but the home team secured a two-on-two situation in their favor in B the next round to win the map 16-13.

Sukhariev and Ischuk combined for five kills to win the terrorist pistol round of de_inferno. Na`Vi went up 3-0, and Kovács' two AK kills in A quickly made it 5-0, despite Friberg's two save round kills in banana.


GeT_RiGhT couldn't turn this game around for his team
 

The Swedes won a three-on-three after plant in B to get on the board, and Friberg's important kills in B the next round gave them a second round. Then Kostin took over for the next rounds.

The young Russian first got a quad kill in A to make it 6-2, and then his two entries, with three late round kills from Kovács put Na`Vi up 7-2, forcing NiP on a save round and effectively making it 8-2.

Alesund's triple kill in banana started NiP's comeback, and Friberg's one-on-one beat Ischuk's triple right after. Landström then scored three AWP kills, bringing his side within two.

The Ninjas' defense seemed inpenetrable, as Johansson scored three M4A4 kills in lane and the half ended with NiP stopping another Na`Vi A attack, winning their fifth round in a row.


seized won Na`Vi the most important rounds on the deciding map
 

Only trailing 7-8, NiP wasted no time in rushing the A bombsite to start the second half, with Lindberg and Landström winning them the pistol. Tied at eight, it seemed NiP were once again in control.

That illusion faded quickly, with Kostin stepping up and scoring three huge MAG-7 kills in B to give Na`Vi the lead. NiP's force buy was stopped by doubles from Kovács and Ischuk, and they were forced to save.

Aggressive play in halls and B got Na`Vi two entries, and Kostin's two kills in the middle secured his team their twelfth round. After a save, NiP found themselves trailing 8-14 in front of the loud Ukrainian crowd.

The Swedes got the entries into A, but Sukhariev and Ischuk cleaned up the site in a retake, giving them round fourteen. Sukhariev's big kills gave them game point, and one round later NiP were stopped for good, 16-8 and 2-0 overall.

As someone said in one other thread; I don't know the one round, but on inferno where Na'vi knew nothing didnt hear or see anyone and rotated 5 B before NiP threw a grenade.. lol.

But anyway, lets wait for their upcoming matches and see how they play.. :)

if they lose upcoming matches , that doesn't mean they only won this lan because of casters.
2014-05-04 20:24:42
ofc not, but it gets people wondering..
2014-05-04 20:26:35
it's the same as saying VP won katowice because of crowd,so why didn't NIP win DHW when they had the crowd as well ? it doesn't relate . and I doubt casters gave away things , russian speaking guys on here said they didn't hear casters on TS , NIP complained sound was too loud yesterday so I suppose that's fixed ?
2014-05-04 20:30:31
"so why didn't NIP win DHW" you know fnatic aka the winner of DHW is swedish as well right? so that's not nearly the same if you start comparing.

yea but the majority was cheering for NIP , Even devilwalk I think in an interview said their fanbase is quite low in comparison to nip
2014-05-04 20:50:40
It was about casters giving away information in the home language

you're talkig about something else entirely ^-^
2014-05-04 21:35:54
He is talking about VP victory cuz home crowd how some smartass says here. He is just pointing out these community bull shits.
2014-05-04 21:49:59
Ah :p
2014-05-05 23:35:20
if u're talking about that eco after pistol round, zeus checked mid and clearly saw nip players rotating to banana
2014-05-04 23:02:21
Even Guardian posted that they are using Steelseries Flux Pro so they cant here anything.
2014-05-05 08:30:53
There was a channel with their ts and I can assure you they didn't get any info from the announcers..

i hear navi's teamspeak and casters could not be heard
2014-05-04 20:00:05
I'm not saying it was ghosting but are you serious with that comment? :D
2014-05-04 20:02:45
He is. There's a stream available with players' teamspeak. It would be obvious for any russian guy that they were ghosting then and there definitely would be at least one russian guy proving this. But everyone says the opposite but u still doubt this.
2014-05-04 22:53:16
the point is that a teamspeak doesn't pick up every noice a player hears. if someone calls to you from far away you will hear it but your mic wont register it.
2014-05-04 23:53:41
It's just pointless to talk about. There are 3 ways you find out the truth:
1) you believe me that there wasn't info at all
2) you believe a trustworthy person that there wasn't info at all
3) learn russian and reveal the truth yourself.
You can stay on your mind which can't be proved. So, it's nothing more but assumption having no value, considering the fact that hundreds made the same assumption.
2014-05-05 01:15:16
oh my god
2014-05-04 20:04:30

Na'Vi 4-0 NiP overall. That was a rape. After Fifflaren stopped awping, he did a good job. It was his best finals performance... still mediocre, though.
2014-05-04 19:53:30
every shitty comment you write is about fifflaren, are you in love with him or why do you think of him all the time?

2014-05-04 20:13:31
Keep acusing casters then . I just cant understand how do you even say they ghost if u dont know Russian ... And why would they ghost ? It would ruin their own tournament .
2014-05-04 20:17:24
You honestly think this navi team is going to achieve anything next lan that isn't casted in Russian? That's cute.

And obviously they're ghosting, they're casting the fucking game lol. They HAVE to tell information, that's their fucking job.
2014-05-04 20:20:33
Omg your such an idiot seriously.. If you actually think that there is no way to cast a game without giving info then you are completely retarded and please visit the doctor. 9 fucking season in a row SLTV is casting without giving a single fucking info and they were saying it a 1000 times . I personally understand russian and watched russian stream there was 0 fucking info.

Im not saying Na`Vi will win their next LAN but they didnt win because of ghosting. And Im sure you are a lazy ass and you wont read all my comment
2014-05-04 20:25:49
I did read your comment. Na`vi won because of the ghosting, done.

They'll fail next lan.
2014-05-04 20:30:27
Saucers filth of the community.

The casters gave 0 info, they even didn't name the guns that the guys had in their hands, learn basic russian and then post shit here, otherwise take your sorry skin losing ass back home.
2014-05-04 20:57:25
Wow, you are a fucking retard.
2014-05-04 21:08:58
Thanks, you too! At least I'm right about this, as you'll see next lan where na`vi will get destroyed :D

Considering your post and that fact that you are from Lithuania, I think that you should know russian. So my question is, where and when did you hear that commentators said some info about NIP players positions or some important info about their strategies?
2014-05-04 20:09:20
I didn't even hear commentators but according to Ex6tenZ who said that he could hear commentators aswell as his teammates, I did my opinions that Na`Vi ghosted and I don't think so that commentators was talking about weather.
2014-05-04 20:11:27
Nah, nothing to tell you. Navi ghosted that's why they won. Don't want to spend my free time like this. You won't believe anyway, you hate Navi too much.
2014-05-04 20:17:21
I don't hate anything. I even like Na`Vi since 1.6 but I'm against unfair game.
2014-05-04 20:19:31
have no proof, shut the fuck up. thats all you can do.
2014-05-04 20:21:08
Do not explain what I should to do. If I want to say my opinion, I will do that and maggots like you won't prohibit me to do that.

No you can't but f0rest have been out of shape for some time now, but that happens to all. But I still wish he could be in his form that he was in 2006-2008, that was his beast days. Those plays we maybe see once a year from him now :(

You can't get back 1.6 f0rest as there is no such thing as movement in CSGO. In 1.6 you use movement to gain a small edge over the other player. In csgo u get stuck behind trash and get fucked

Enjoyed this SLTV Finals, nice commentaries, also liked the analytics casting after each game. Welldone SLTV :)

Funny that russian teams always wins SLTV.. too much ghosting in one place
2014-05-04 19:57:17
not really, I have noticed that fan cheering on SLTV Finals are always one level ahead of other tournaments, spirit of russian teams are just too high there.

IMHO.

Honestly, while watching the game, I thought it was strange how well Na'Vi seemed to predict NiP's movements. Casters noticed it as well, mentioning several times how Na'Vi somehow made the perfect rotations with little to no information.

I was ready to chalk it down as just experience and hard practice, but honestly it wouldn't be the first time an eastern-European team would be ghosting on home turf.

Whatevs, good game.

2014-05-04 20:16:09
Dude, did you follow navi in 1.6?

THAT was exactly their strength back then. Perfect rotations (almost 0 seconds of having a gap in the def line) and positioning. For example they had the best CT-side-play on dust2 (of all teams in the world and probably of all time) for this very reason. They never had the best aimers or the best overall strats, but their rotation-gameplay was incredibly good. When they played CT side on maps like dust2 they were able to make top teams look like amateurs. When talking about old Navi people always come up with "markeloff AWP, Edward top aimer blablabla", but the true quality of Navi was always their defense-teamplay (where for example markeloffs awp-play became insane). I always thought this is just the result of their huge amount of practice, but I guess it also has to do with how Zeus leads the team..

There is a difference between GOOD calls and PERFECT calls. And to answer your question, yes I did, from the very first time they started to make waves all the way to the end of professional 1.6.

I'm also not accusing anyone of anything, just saying that I, too, thought it was a bit weird. And that it wouldn't be the first time, which is just a fact.

Really nice event. No delays, cameras for the players and they utilized them well, good in-game settings for the observer client, next to no PC problems for the players, nor the stream equipment, many viewers without drops, great games.

Virtus.Pro entered the event on the wrong foot, they will bounce back and in my book still are TOP2 after NiP.

For Titan it was way too early after the unplanned roster change to come and compete with NiP. They looked better than I had expected though, hopefully they will somehow make it work. I still think without shox they will never reach TOP1 world, which they did for a short period. They are still an elite team and without a doubt capable of winning against all teams and taking home major events, but not consistently. At least this event showed that they can still, even at this early stage of re-integrating kennyS, compete at the top. This helps stabilizing their TOP3 rank they are currently struggling to defend against dignitas.

NiP showing their normal shape against VP and Titan. Against Na´Vi f0rest and GeT_RiGhT went missing too much to overcome Edward's, GuardiaN's and seized's performances. They tried to counter GuardiaN with two AWPs and an Autonsiper on dust2 CT side, even then they couldn't handle him.

Na´Vi had a perfect torunament, everyone did their job and more. Spot-on calling from Zeus. As for ghosting, SLTV really should look into that. I saw players without in-ears, starix more than once had his headphones off his head after dying in a round. Nevertheless, Na´Vi are not coming out of nowhere as people making it seem. They beat just about every elite team before on LAN including Titan, NiP, HR and only recently struggled because they were adjusting to a new situation. seized also didn't really bloom on LAN until now. They defnitely are contestants going into future events. They always had good results versus the poles, NiP and Titan. Who they really struggle with are fnatic, LGB and dignitas.

How can you be so narrow minded to think that they had any help from the casters? Even if theres just a slice of truth in that statement, there would be lots of rus speaking people who admited that, but theres only swedes and french mostly.
Navi knows how to win everything, they did it in 2010 surprisingly, and they did it this time again, so stop being irrational pls.

nice event. I really enjoy watching SLTV and their tourneys. This event shows us that another team is competitive and wants to have their spot in top3, but navi needs to achieve more to be in top3 crew.

1. NiP
2. VP
3. dignitas
4. Na'Vi / Titan.
6. fnatic.
2014-05-04 20:50:47
Hmmm, and what dignitas achieved more then Titan or fnatic to be in top3?
2014-05-04 20:54:23
Well, dignitas tears shit up online, and they did pretty good on both CPH and IEM.

pretty good to be top3, seems legit :)

if you ranking teams at their current form that seems about right

Titan has done nothing in the last 3 lan events they are not top 3.

NaVi won this ONE event also eleminated in group stage at EMS.

that top 3 is accurate

2014-05-04 21:23:15
I guess after this tournament nobody would question me for putting Na'Vi in the top8 teams.

However the people who say Na'Vi are the best team now or definitely top3 etc.. should really have a reality check. Na'Vi need to prove their worth in more than one tournament and need to show consistenty throughout the whole year to have any of chance of being placed in anything above 6/7th place.

Na'Vi were the best team in this tournament but we're still talking about just one tournament.
2014-05-04 20:56:40
they had someone on teamspeak with them from the ppl watching :D
2014-05-04 20:59:14
there were POV streams with teams' teamspeaks, someone would have noticed that
2014-05-04 21:03:40
u can open 2 teamspeak server xD
2014-05-04 21:58:00
I think it is only natural for Na'Vi to outperform the rest of the teams on home soil (especially when you have the whole venue cheering for you) just like VP did in Katowice and just like the swedes usually outperform everybody else at DreamHack.

As a NIP fan and as a Russian, i have to say that anyone accusing the casters of ghosting is either mad at his skin bets (rofl) or a total butthurt idiot.

I've watched every single minute of the final stream and the casters did their best at refraining from giving out any valuable "game-changing" information and were always speaking in innuendos that only the audience could understand.

Some of you says SL must use noise canceling stuff... Guys have you ever tried it, em the noise canceling/protecting earphones(ear defenders), ones like Peltor II... I tell you something, I do use them at work, even through them I can hear people speaking very well. It does cancel surrounding noise and you can concentrate on what others say! So... your statement is kinda pointless. But once again I would like to say it is only of my own experience! ;) I was watching all the Navi`s game and I didn`t see nothing from casters side... Every time when something interesting was about to happen they were saying something like: look at this guy what has in his hands, lets what he can do with it... but they never said who was THE GUY or which team he plays for... Yes they did say what guns have guys only if they have killed somebody with that gun... all was on a level! If fallow your logic about "casters spoilers" then every single tournament which will be won by team who understands english, was won with casters help then... Navi should be thankful to fnatic btw for the SPOT! :) anyway they showed really nice fight! seized ftw! GGbb

Na'vi won not because of ghosting, but because they're playing in front of their home crowd (3 of the players are Ukrainians). They don't want to disappoint them.
2014-05-04 23:54:41
f0rest go back to 1600x900 or 1024 plz
2014-05-05 00:16:27
GJ Guys. I like u a lot. Edward is one of my favorite player in a world. Good luck Natus Vincere !!
2014-05-05 00:44:16
Great performance Na`Vi!

You had to win it and you did it!
2014-05-05 01:16:47
Yeah! Na`Vi ggwp))
2014-05-05 02:24:17
missed the match. shocked. i mean navi just beat nip 4-0 overall in two matches. While nip is actually in good shape, considering they beat Titan and VP (their 2 biggest rivals).
Holy... I feel lucky that i stopped betting after DH winter. hmm, so hard to predict things now.
2014-05-05 04:04:24
3:0 *
2014-05-05 05:36:00
NiP still best ><
But gj Na'Vi
2014-05-05 07:27:46
guys who tell about ghosting ingame information by casters, are u kidding? do u really believe, if SLTV casters give info to a players, they would be a professionals? or do u think that hltv has no people who speak russian and nobody knows about the way they cast it?

i think, u just have no brain if think this way... I was in Kyiv arena and listened to them, they speak 'bout obviously things which happened in a past, sometimes speak by puzzles that even me could not understand, so, make a conclusion. I listened to navi's TS as well and I can tell u that some desicions Zeus made at the beginning of the rounds... so, what kind of info u are talking?

P.S. gj Na'Vi, new version of chlenix was released and they got it :D
P.S.S. f0rest is still da-Best

2014-05-05 11:02:25

To all NIP fanbois who cant handle a team beating NiP
2014-05-05 14:29:42
GHOSTING ?
So why didnt NaVi win all SLTV series ?!?!?!?!
Or what about VP ? Rus language is close to Polsk!
2014-05-05 11:05:28

That's still the same as katowice... NaVi win ok.. But NiP still top1 beacuse ALWAYS is on FINALS. Not Titan, not VP, not Dignitas, not LGB, not Fnatic and not NaVi only NiP
2014-05-05 12:16:14
Nip players are famous from getting 2nd places in big events. They choke in finals.

How can a bucnh of pricks talk shit about na`vi? When nobody plays not even 1% hard like them. nip are gone thjat`s it , don`t expect to win anymore they had 1 year ahead advanced to practice now let`s see them.
2014-05-05 13:30:11
Swedes, French y u mad? GG WP Na`Vi, especially Zeus - best in game leader.

2014-05-05 14:24:20
kinda sad navi needed ghosting to win, typical eastern europeans.
2014-05-05 14:30:47
ggwp! Navi has been playing great throughout the tournament. Well deserved win. Hope they can keep it up at the coming lan-events!

I do however think the crowd helped a bit, it's always a boost to play at home turf with the crowd on your side.
