NiP beat dignitas; win Mikz Challenge

Game: Counter-Strike: Global Offensive

Ninjas in Pyjamas have been crowned champions of the Mikz Challenge after thrashing dignitas 2-0 in the grand final of this two-day cup.

Three of Europe's strongest teams (since LDLC.com pulled out of the tournament due to DDoS attacks) took part in the cup, which was organised by fragbite together with Mikz, and battled it out for the 10,000 SEK (approximately €1,115) cheque.

In the first day of the tournament, Ninjas in Pyjamas sealed a place in the grand final after moving past fnatic 16-6 and then dignitas 2-1, with Philip "aizy" Aistrup drawing admiring glances for his stellar performance for the Danish giants.

Day two began with dignitas beating fnatic on just two maps, the second of which went to multiple overtimes, to set up a grudge match against NiP in the final.

However, the cup decider was a one-way street, with NiP walking out 2-0 winners while losing just 10 rounds in total. The Swedes played with Finn "karrigan" Andersen as a stand-in for Patrik "f0rest" Lindberg for most of the second map, de_inferno, which they won 16-9.

I don't think he wants any. Since this was good for his reputation, experience and probably funniest time in csgo ever.
2014-05-20 02:33:41
he have experience, just have some fun with NiP players :)

Still cash usually always comes in handy (f.e. future replacement of old cow bell, hi-fi tuning of the latter etc.).

Though I presume NiP guys may invite him to some drink or two the next time they meet at an event/somewhere...
2014-05-20 02:42:47
Is "future replacement of old cow bell" a saying?
Or do you literally mean, he could buy a new cow bell to replace his old one? (Assuming he has a cow bell already)

He 'upgraded' his stuff as of late (I don't recall the name of that other stuff he used to have, sorry) if I am not mistaken thus, yes, I mean it literally aka he has a cow bell already ;)

He does have a cowbell. He uses it in MAKKU's vid of Reason playing at Katowice at 6:49

Aha, fuck me that's funny. It's a great idea, just really bizarre to me :D
2014-05-20 15:09:48
Demoralize the enemy, I guess.
2014-05-20 15:35:35
I'd imagine it'd get you pretty pumped up :D I actually really want to try this now..
2014-05-20 15:51:51
*visualising grund using the cow bell behind his computer at home*
2014-05-21 13:13:56
I bought one this morning :D
2014-05-21 14:08:28
When are you going to use it LOL
2014-05-21 14:31:18
I usually play with friends in the evening. Hopefully it has the same effect down the mic :D

If the results are good, I'll make my friends get them too. So when we make a good play, you'll just hear multiple cowbells down the mic, aha :)
2014-05-21 14:47:01
Probably nothing. He just played 1 map as standin becuase he's a nice guy and ofc. good friends with the NiP guys or atleast Xizt :)

what has been going on with f0rest as of late? Doesn't seem to be performing like he used to. Karrigan may be permanent soon.
2014-05-20 02:30:34
forest was playing at the begning , then he left and karrigan joined

Watch the first bo3 vs Dignitas during the Mikz, f0rp basically destroyed them alone, and he was @ 15-8 already on this one, which isn't bad at all :P
2014-05-20 07:13:48
You just showed how little you follow the scene. f0rest carried the team in some earlier matches in this very cup. Don't try to come of as knowledgeable when you're in fact ignorant to the facts.

How?
2014-05-20 03:59:19
Why did forest have to go?
2014-05-20 03:52:15
my guess would be: DDoS or PC crash
2014-05-20 04:11:10
My guess is jail dude JAIL!!!!!!!! No more games for arrested dudes!
2014-05-20 04:16:11
This joke isn't funny anymore, but nice try. ))

Well, the thing is f0rest was playing from library in jail which closes 10:00 pm. He forgot about this and was disconnected and brought back to his cell. A sad story really

2014-05-20 14:19:48
Extremely unfair match, just imagine having to face nip on D2, right after playing a Bo3 against fnatic with a triple overtime.

They were fatigued and had absolutely no chance.
2014-05-20 06:06:30
ye because @ lan they would have a chance..lol

"fatigued" this isn't a fucking tennis match, you don't get that tired from playing a video game.
2014-05-20 12:03:43
Captain retardo strikes again.
2014-05-20 12:49:43
Maybe your autism is strong enough to prevent you from experiencing mental fatigue, but normal people have limits.
2014-05-20 14:30:09
Yeah, after every bo3, every team should be able to go to rehab/therapy and atleast 2 days break before next match. Unless its super unfair!
2014-05-20 16:05:38
The fact that you're sporting the flag of an English speaking country, yet fail to make yourself understood in that very tongue amazes me.

OnT: If you don't believe mental fatigue is real, I'd love to see a video of you performing a mentally exhausting task for longer than 3 hours, while maintaining high quality results.
2014-05-21 00:56:41
Yes, very hard indeed to understand that.. x) And tho, you seem to know so much about being a pro cs player. Are you one?
2014-05-21 03:06:29
Are you kidding me? How old are you? You're either stupid, immature, or just dyslectic.

You don't have to be a proffessional CS player to realize that your performance in ANY similar activity falls off if you go for too long.

I guess you don't though, since you're arguing about it. Maybe you're shit enough at everything you do to not notice it.
2014-05-21 11:54:57
Haha what the fuck is wrong with you? Seriously! You seem butthurt. Professional dont get mentaly exauhsted after a single bo3. It's never been a problem. If you'r playing matches all night, ofcourse you get tired.
2014-05-21 12:07:46
These guys are used to play 8+ hours straight everyday, I doubt their 1,5 hour game versus fnatic was something that drained them physically/mentally.
2014-05-20 13:33:22
aizy low haha

Everybody had a bad performance on Dignitas' side. Got no clue why you blame Aizy or say he's an onliner all of a sudden. This community is just braindead.
