NiP returns for CS:GO
By: Nix0n

Game: Counter-Strike: Global Offensive

Ninjas in Pyjamas have respawned with a team for Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, housing the former SK-duo Patrik "f0rest" Lindberg and Christopher "GeT_RiGhT" Alesund, as well as Richard "Xizt" Landström who has left fnatic.

One of the most oldschool names in Counter-Strike today returned from the grave. Emil "HeatoN" Christensen has revived the brand by announcing a CS:GO team, a team surely to be considered as an attempt to house the first big name for the soon to be released game.

"I am incredibly proud to revive NiP again. We used to be the best team in the world, and I believe we will be on top once again, in CS:GO! I have so much faith in these players, they're great guys both inside and outside of the game" - Reads a statement by Emil "HeatoN" Christensen

The announcement was channeled through fragibte.se, breaking the news that after five years of inactivity, the Ninja in Pyjamas brand is back.

Christensen has picked up the former SK-duo Patrik "f0rest" Lindberg and Christopher "GeT_RiGhT" Alesund, who already have been playing plenty of CS:GO together, as well as former Counter-Strike: Source players in Adam "friberg" Friberg and Robin "Fifflaren" Johansson.

Both Friberg and Johansson up until recently represented Team Heat Gaming, a brand Christensen is also associated with.


The biggest surprise, on top of today's announcement is that Richard "Xizt" Landström is listed as a member of the team. According to the press release sent out by NiP, Landström has been released from his contract with fnatic, just twelve days after winning GameGune.


Team introduction at www.nip-gaming.se

The only available player statement was made by Alesund, who stated the following:

"It's an honor to be playing under such a legendary tag. These four great guys and myself in a new team that will try to regain what NiP was in the glory days. Also, being back with HeatoN as one of the owners feels even more amazing! I'm just looking forward to the tournaments ahead to show people what we are made of"

Ninja in Pyjamas CS:GO team therefore consist of the following five players:

Patrik " f0rest" Lindberg
Christopher "GeT_RiGhT" Alesund
Adam "friberg" Friberg
Robin "Fifflaren" Johansson
Richard "Xizt" Landström

According to rakaka.se the team is supported by ZOWIE GEAR, a brand Christensen is also associated with. They furthermore believe Heat Gaming and Inferno Online will be the main sponsors of the team. Anton Budak, formerly SK coach is also believe to be brought onboard.

Landström has in recent time played CS:GO with the Swedish team ROCKSTAR, a team which also saw the names mentioned above included in.

With Landström joining NiP, fnatic are now first of all without their in-game leader, but also down a member. The impressions given by the team after winning GameGune was that there were plenty of upcoming events for the team.


No announcements or comments have been made by fnatic as of yet, but we expect a comment on the matter within far to long. We will also do our best to update you on what will happen with fnatic's 1.6 team.

why don't play 1.6? go fuckyourself "PROS"
2012-08-11 04:47:05
Well, it's not a bad news for CS at all from my perspective. Remember those criticism receive when CS1.6 was firstly released? hope this game can replace cs1.6 and inaugurate a new legend with the descent of CS1.6 which was success enough to drawn an end.
2012-08-24 09:13:27
1. pro players in cs:go sucks... no practice the same for 1.6 but worst whit global offensive

2. cs:go never replace 1.6 cuz REMEMBER 1.5 and 1.6 was VERY similar... global offensive has nothing of 1.6!
2012-08-25 01:54:11
NIP cs1.3-1.5 No1 CSGo??
2012-08-13 10:30:38
hope that game will die soon

Why? You hate e-sports?
2012-08-10 14:13:57

2012-08-10 14:21:31
you can't play 1 game for ever. I think people that still believe cs 1.6 will survive 1 or 2 more years are dumb. We need some changes and we need to adapt to something new. Accept the fact that GO will success as a e-Sport title.
2012-08-10 14:37:16
macedonian boy u dont say that
2012-08-10 14:47:01
nice fake flag you got there buddy.. keep up with the flags.. change em in like month or something its fun you know..
2012-08-10 15:01:34
i'm macedonian bro, probably you know me.
2012-08-10 15:06:10
yeah i know you thats why i said you should keep changing flags because its fun ...
2012-08-10 15:07:00
whats rhe problem man?
2012-08-10 20:22:06
Yeah so why CS:GO and not CS Promod?
2012-08-10 14:47:14
i didn't say that we need to switch to CS:GO but we need some changes .. i just said that with the support from valve GO will success because you see now 1 by 1 every 1.6 pro player will move to GO because of the money.
2012-08-10 15:00:37
Yeah, because of the money... That's sad that they're forced to play a game that Valve wants them to play ..
2012-08-10 15:01:41
They don't play it because valve wants them to, they play it because it's their job as Professionals. You can't blame them for making a living off a game and then adapting to the market. People need to get a new head on this website and learn about growing up.
2012-08-10 15:07:56
thats what i wanted to say but i didn't know how to explain it since english isn't my native lang.

That's fine, it's just small minded people here that are bringing the whole CS scene down, then blame someone else because they're too scared and stupid to realise that there idiotic sayings like "CS1.64L1F3" "1.62S7r0nK" isnt going to help.

Agreed. I'd like to point that Valve isn't the one killing CS1.6. You seriously wouldn't expect Valve to give up on improving Counter- Strike series since CS1.6 was a hit and revolutionized the gaming which actually CREATED e-Sports. They had to keep making sequels to the game as you would expect any other company to.
I mean, what if there weren't any sequel to COD series, Crysis etc. A company would always want to release sequels to their signature game series with the aim to provide more entertainment and to make the sequel better than the previous one. That's what keeps the company alive. Maybe in the future there would be another sequel to CS series, say, CS:Revolution or something like that and we'd come here on HLTV.org once more and say "CSR sucks!! CS:GO forever!" and such stuff.
It is the player's choice to switch to CS:GO or not. World changes, so it's not a surprise if a current pro player decides to change the game he wants to play. :)
2012-08-10 17:26:16
cs 1.6 was doing great untill CSGO was announced. CSGO killed 1.6 / valve
2012-08-10 17:43:24
Are you seriously suggesting that Valve should have shut itself down instead of releasing CS:GO?!!
Just because lurppis think CS:GO isn't good, doesn't mean that you should follow his ideals.
Look at it this way. Suppose that instead of CS1.6, COD4 was main e-sport title and then COD:MW2 was released. Gamers switched to MW2. So what's the big deal, huh?
You're saying that Valve who itself developed CS1.6 wants to shit on it by releasing CS:GO?
Poor mentality bro!
2012-08-10 18:02:33
Right because they're making a game that is promoted to the worldwide market is what's killing off a game that's had almost 13 years off life, which seems to be the brain age of most of the people on this website. Narrow-mindedness will really be the downfall of the Counter Strike series. Not graphically superior sequels that want to expands it's player base and actually unite both 1.6 and source community, as opposed to watching the 1.6 player base deteriorate.
2012-08-10 18:22:09
CSGO is not just a random new "BATTELFIELD" or what ever... its has the title "Counter Strike" and so it will replace the other title "Counter Strike" at events. LOGIC.

edit: thats whats happening and you know it. CS didnt get replaced when BF3 came out late 2011? If it was CounterStrike: BF3 then it would have.

Omfg a comment like that shows how new school you are.... CS 1.6 wasn't doing great untill CSGO was announced.

CS 1.6 was STUCK and had peaked many years ago. I remember when i started to play CS everybody was talking about the game. All IRC channels had so many people spamming "5v5 / no server / msg me" and so on.

today when i visit one of those channels its fucking hard to find even a random guy saying a random word. The top scene could continue because sponsors keept putting money in the tournaments, but slowly everything behind it died. The only reason why we today sometimes see a new player in the "top-scene" is because some top players decide to retire. If it wasn't because of that it would be the same people staying in the top because the scene behind it has been dead for a long time.

Since the sponsors are not willing to put money in CS1.6 anymore, the top scene is also dying.

Of course it has a little to do with CS:GO but its not the reason why CS1.6 is dead, it has been dead for a long time.
CS1.6 wasn't doing great untill CS:GO was announced, only the pro scene could survive alittle longer.

Yea, if they want to earn money on cs, they are FORCED to play cs:go.
I don't blame them. I want valve to make cs:go a real counter strike or they could somehow support CSPromod..
2012-08-10 15:18:55
ok, play CSPromod, nice gameplay, not GO, totally shit control and gameplay
2012-08-10 15:05:57
even if we play Promod, still 1.6 pros would play GO because it will have like huge huge prize money and Promod won't have any tournaments.. i guess you would like to see some actions, so you would probably watch GO and they will get the money they want from the streams.
2012-08-10 15:08:24
yeah, agree =(
2012-08-10 15:12:25
i played CSP today... bullshit.. but i think that CS:GO ist that good too...
2012-08-10 15:22:46
Actually, I am playing Promod for 2 days and I really enjoy it. That's the cs 1.6 with some additional things that will keep the game alive.. The only bad thing I've noticed in Promod it that when u shoot someone, you don't exactly know if u hit him or not, but overall, I love it.
2012-08-10 15:29:21
because CSGO has far better backing from valve/hidden path, than CSP has with their independent group
2012-08-10 16:21:39
i'm playing cs 1.6 more than 5 years, and i will play cs 1.6 5 years or even longer. :) and not only this game. i'm playing stronghold crusader more than 5 years, and i will try to play it those 5 years, again. :) you can try other games, becouse you can't stand in one game / hobby and etc, so you trying everything, who giving you fun... i'm sorry for my bad english, i'm trying to do my best. btw in my opinion you always need some changes cuz rutine sux
2012-08-10 21:44:11
cs:go never !
League of Legends here I go.
2012-08-10 14:43:45
Don't do that, LOL is seriously overrated. I play it sometimes just to kill time or because i'm a bit laggy and can't play CS
2012-08-10 14:48:28
agree man, lol is the biggeest piece of shit ever
2012-08-10 15:43:34
yeah i prefer LoL , it's alot more fun ..
2012-08-10 16:30:37
bitch please 1.6 never die... cs:go suck my dick...
2012-08-10 15:48:15
Funny, I remember going from cs 1.5 to cs 1.6. I didn't like 1.6 to begin with, but atleast it did feel like Counter-Strike. Try going from cs 1.6 to cs:go, it isn't Counter-Strike at all.

So what? Don't like it? Don't play it. No one needs negative comments about the game here, so just stfu about it people.

People don't have to open threads about CS:GO and go bash it, that's just plain dumb. I hope the game goes big and replaces 1.6, since 1.6 hasn't got really much to offer for us anymore.

"Don't like it" -- I don't like it yes, they shouldn't even call it counter-strike. More like Strike of Duty

"Don't play it" -- I'm sure that most kids here will try it and give negative feedback. It's not always about the graphics.

"No one needs negative comments about the game here" -- Oh sure they do! Without negative comments / feedback, there wouldn't be any communites. Everyone has a different opinions about things. If everyone would agree on one thing, that would be the end of the world.

"People don't have to open threads about CS:GO and go bash it, that's just plain dumb" -- Why? Because you love CS:GO? And "WE" love cs 1.6 gameplay instead of childish gameplay (cs:go) ?

"that's just plain dumb." -- No it isn't.

"I hope the game goes big and replaces 1.6, since 1.6 hasn't got really much to offer for us anymore." -- I beg the differ so other games may provail to be the next-gen FPS game. Counter-Strike is dead if CS:GO is the next "cs".
2012-08-10 14:41:32
What he said.
2012-08-10 16:42:32
Giving feed back is good, I never disagreed about that. Having opinions and sharing them is good, but have you seen the comments about the game here in HLTV? It's not any constructive and some of it isn't even feedback, aka useless, and should not be posted.

"Why? Because you love CS:GO? And "WE" love cs 1.6 gameplay instead of childish gameplay (cs:go) ?" I don't love the game.. :D I haven't even played the it, I am not just as negative as most of the people. Define childish gameplay in a game, that is just a silly term. Again, don't bash unless you have something USEFUL to say, instead of just: " OMG DIS GAME SUCKS, I HOPE IT DIES, 1.6 FOR EVAH BROS"

"No it isn't." Making unrelated comments that in no way are useful towards the game/a post about the game. It is.

"I beg the differ so other games may provail to be the next-gen FPS game. Counter-Strike is dead if CS:GO is the next "cs"." Haven't followed much about new released, so I can't really comment but it wont be any of the mainstream games. I dunno what the 2nd sentence is suppose to mean, but CS 1.6, CS:S and :GO will not be dead for many a year now. :)

Edit: "I don't like it yes, they shouldn't even call it counter-strike. More like Strike of Duty" What? Just because it is different than 1.6, doesn't mean Valve should name it something else. They should have called CS:S something else then, too. Also that name is horrendous. :D

2012-08-10 18:27:55
People dont have to make posts about how great CS:GO is since it really is not
2012-08-10 15:39:34
Who are you to define that? And people don't have to make completely useless posts about how bad CS:GO since its completely subjective, and again pointless. =)
2012-08-10 18:28:27
Who are you to define that it is gonna replace 1.6? I understand that you think its an okay game, but complaining when people makes posts about it beeing rubbish and then commenting that you think its not. Its basically the same thing. Just a difference in opinions. However, i wish for something to succeed, if its cs:go then fine. But if not and people go to promod or back to 1.6 thats fine aswell. Sry for the long post, am drunk and have a tendency to just rabble on and on
2012-08-10 19:45:38
1. I never defined the game that would "replace" 1.6.
2. I have not said thing about the actual GAMEPLAY the game, because I have not played the game.
3. I agree that people may not like the game, but 90% of the comments here about the game are complete garbage and useless.
4. Yeah, when I am drunk I tend to talk a lot too :D

Hating on a bad game is hating on esports?
2012-08-10 20:59:16
Not wanting to e-sports grow is one way of putting it. ;) It is maybe a bit of an ultimatum but does the job well enough.
2012-08-10 23:42:31
As far as I know, eSports is mostly based on the playerbase. I don't recall games like Serious Sam, Left 4 Dead etc. having a professional scene despite having multiplayer. It's the consumer's right to dislike a bad product. A perfect example for esports done right is League of Legends. It became a successful competitive title not because it was advertised as one, but because the players loved it. Forcing a game on the competitive scene is just plain wrong.
2012-08-11 12:13:56
No one is forcing CS:Go to be a eSports title, but it already has started its journey towards it. Of course Valve will not advertise it as one, but seeing it is already having GO4CS:GO cups etc, they will invest into it.
2012-08-11 15:26:16
Haha it's right the opposite. Valve IS advertising it like one.

Yes, why do you think 1.6 survived so many years on the esport scene and became the number 1 played FPS game ? If they are changing CS 1.6 with CS:GO, why isn't FIFA changing normal football with some kind of new football.. like some FUCKING cyberfootball with fucking lightsabers ? If something is good, do not change it. CS:GO killed the world gaming scene, the sponsors killed it, the organisations killed it. Because no one is asking what the people like, everything is about money.

2012-08-10 14:13:10
cause 1.6 is dead, why do u wanna waste your talent in a game without major tournaments. its time to move on and win some big shit :D
2012-08-10 14:28:57
Yes but there's some tournaments remaining, and Xizt just decided to switch to GO before finishing those tournaments !!
Imo, NIP was suposed to w8 till fnaticRC finish the tournaments left, then announce this news !!
2012-08-10 14:31:53
why should he stick to 1.6? csgo release is soon, with it big tournaments will follow and he should practice csgo now before its too late
2012-08-10 14:33:51
Yes Yes i'm agree ith you but , the question is why he left fnatic ? they just brought trace, and they have some tournaments remaining, why he didn't w8 till he finished that, then say bye bye to his 1.6 team, then announce his GO team risen ?!! seems so fast as a decision !!
2012-08-10 14:48:35
i think you can only be in one team, cause you promote hardware brands etc from which you get sponsored. since fnatic and nip have different sponsors, xizt can only promote one brand. otherwise his sponsors would be mad :D

thats why u have to decide i guess, nip wanted to release their team now and xizt hat to choose

2012-08-10 15:01:18
The remaining tournaments are DH, ASUS and some lame-ass low-money online tours!
Even if they win all those tournaments they'd still earn less than by winning the first few CS:GO tournaments and don't forget that it may bring a lot more tours!

I personally am not a fan of CS:GO and I think the game will fail competitively but I don't blame xizt for the switch!

Yes it's sad >.< FUCK IT

They already switched to GO, didnt they? Maybe not officialy, but it's obvious.

I dont care how they were doing in Source, they will dominate in GO.

First of all learn your English kid.
2012-08-11 05:48:50
"Learn my english", hmmm nice sentence --' just keep ur mouth closed,better for you
I don't know who should do it !!
2012-08-13 12:07:51
To be honest you could just stfu. You don't know whats happening in this world boy. so you better GTFO.
2012-08-13 19:00:02
18 years old from philipine ... :X just don't reply please --' talkin with mongolians from philipine
2012-08-15 11:42:45
STFU, you don't even know how to speak english. philipine? WTF is that.

Dude just go attend to your english class. You are very annoying.
2012-08-16 11:11:09
well he has a talent so why waste your talent on a dead game?
2012-08-10 17:40:42
If you say that !!
2012-08-10 17:52:44
i think valve will make u play cs:go if u still want to play counter-strike ... so sad imo
2012-08-10 14:13:39
So wrong. You can still play in thousands of servers that are not hosted by Valve. CS 1.6 dies only if the fans want it to die.

The pro scene is another thing.
2012-08-10 14:16:46
lol who cares about servers.. if you wanna be a pro you need tournaments
2012-08-10 14:26:15
PLEASE UNDERSTAND.

Nobody is killing 1.6.
People just stoped playing it to play many others games. So 1.6 died by PLAYERS CHOICE.

And Valve is taking place on that to make money with a new game, trying to make the frenchise strong again WORLDWIDE.

Back in the days 70% os pro-players where on 1.6, now it was less then 15% and that number just dont make sense to sponsors put theyr money.
2012-08-10 14:35:38
where did u find those numbers?
2012-08-10 17:28:39
This is so wrong that it isn't even funny. The community never wanted CS:GO and Valve are forcing it as a tournament title. I'm pretty sure you didn't exist "back in the day".
2012-08-10 21:07:43
Where i sad comunity wanted CS:GO?

Players runned to play OTHER GAMES, think!
2012-08-11 15:47:01
So how are those "other games" different than CS:GO? The only thing in common with 1.6 is the name.

2012-08-11 16:09:36
I think you are the one that needs to understand.
CS 1.6 is dead because you do not need expensive hardware to play the game. Why would they sponsor a game that brings no income whatsoever..
2012-08-11 01:01:30
No dude, i am sorry but thats wrong.

Games most sponsored are the ones that have strong comunity and HUGE worldwide VIEWERS.

Sponsor just care about numbers, not about how much of hardware a game need.

If u check the strongest games on the moment, the ones are been most sponsored the mojority dont need any special hardware. They are just hugly played and stream followed worldwide. Whey more then 1.6.

And other important data:
1.6 was loosing % of players and viewers, and many other games were rasing that %. In realation with total of players and viewers of all strongest games.

So please guys, lets just forget about 1.6, and get inside GO forcing valve to change the game to what we think is better.
If 1.6 comunity step out of this job we will end without a good game to play and tourneys.



2012-08-11 15:58:19
I somewhat agree. I still think that hardware played some part. Also, due to the graphics, new generation of players are not attracted to the game anymore.
It's a shame, but I do agree that we should try to force valve into changing the game to make it as good as possible. I bought the game yesterday, waiting to play it on the 14th but to tell you the truth, they didn't work on movement/physics at all... that really pisses me off..
Later
2012-08-12 00:51:46
I never played GO, i bought it and i am waiting them to send me.

I know i will not like it, and i will post what i think about it. If its too terrible i will just keep on 1.6, for fun, or stop playing it all till them change the game.

If 1.6 players dont move to GO, they will be forced to make GO closer to 1.6. Thats really simple.
2012-08-13 05:31:17
I am talking about the majority that isn't a pro and plays it casually in public servers. Valve can't do anything about those.

Oh, and there aren't more tournaments because sponsors don't want to pour more money to CS 1.6, not Valve.
2012-08-10 20:13:34
They can't make you play that game in any way. Right now, I hate the game, and I will msot likely never start to play it. I don't care that much about the 1.6 scene falling, because I enjoy playing more then I enjoy watching.
2012-08-10 14:25:00
i agree , but it's gonna be stupid cause what this thing will do i think is split the community in 3 halfs , i dislike that
2012-08-10 14:29:01
Oh well, if you enjoy 1.6, play it, that's what I will do ;)
2012-08-10 17:02:48
Finally a comment that makes sense.

OMG, fnatic was a such good team with XIZT. I think without him they won't be as they was. Sad for Counter-Strike 1.6, but we must say bye to it for 1 year, and CS:GO will fall down like Source, and 1.6 will be back on track.
2012-08-10 14:14:29
wont be as good for what ?? 1 tournament a year

They showed potential and young strong blood. They'll dominate whole year, but now, idk.
2012-08-10 14:17:57
CS1.6 won't ever be back again, its over and its not because CS:GO, its because the game is old as hell. So, if CS:GO fails, the entire Counter-Strike franchise will be dead.

I hope not, but there is 90% true in your words... maybe they'll release CS:GO as playable game, and everything will be ok, i can watch ESC playing Minesweeper, but i want whole scene to stay in gaming.
2012-08-10 14:25:00
Have u not realized that since 2010??, the only reason it survived this long is because it had a millionaire backing it countless tournments?
2012-08-10 14:25:44
Well, CS1.6 has been in decay for years. Thats why I support CS:GO, its the only way to maintain Counter-Strike and its players alive in gaming.
2012-08-10 14:31:51
You can also support CS Promod.. It's actually the next counter strike, because it's the 1.6 with some additional things that will keep that game alive. I wouldn't even call CS:GO a counter strike tbh ..
2012-08-10 14:54:32
CSP had the chance 6 years back and they failed. CSP its maybe a 'more-related' CS game, but I don't think their game will be supported for big companies and tournaments.
2012-08-10 15:13:19
Yea I also doubt that CSPromod will be a huge game, but I will play it for sure. I also think that CS:GO's viewership won't be so large, because the game doesn't have so much support from 1.6 players and they simply won't play it. Imo CS:GO is just too bad to compete with games like LoL, dota2 or SC2. Maybe they will have many viewers soon after the game will be available, but viewers will diminish quickly..
2012-08-10 15:26:32
maybe old gamers... but you have to think about new gamers as well... thats where 1.6 is dying... no new players for many years
2012-08-10 15:58:51

Great news. Wonder who will be fnatic's 5th
2012-08-10 14:18:18
My guess is there isn't going to be any 5th or rather 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th too. Like SK they too will disband their 1.6 division.
2012-08-10 14:26:29

2012-08-10 15:02:33
SK disbanded their 1.6 division some weeks ago
2012-08-10 15:50:52
thats what I meant there.
2012-08-10 15:51:58
Okay. It was just not what you wrote :)
2012-08-10 16:06:27
When I wrote "Like SK" I meant fnatic might disband "like SK" has disbanded earlier. Hope that clears out the doubt. :)
2012-08-10 16:15:36
"Like SK they too will disband their 1.6 division."

.. "they too will"... "Will" is the keyword here. Which means they havn't disbanded the team yet, but will - in the future - according to your sentence.
2012-08-10 16:23:33
like sk = like sk
they too = fnatic
will disband = will disband
his sentence is perfectly fine

Really nice news. If CS:GO devs see a ton of CS 1.6 players flocking to their main title, they'll be hearing more their thoughts on the game and making changes.

This is great!
2012-08-10 14:18:35
nice joke
2012-08-10 15:18:48
You don't understand politics. "In order to play the game, you have to be there, not in the sidelines" (like you and me). This has the potential to be something huge.
2012-08-10 19:57:22
They missed this chance. The game is being released in a week. Your statement is invalid.

Post edited 2012-08-10 21:10:38
2012-08-10 21:10:27
No, it isn't just because you said so. The game will be polished after release and it will be more popular that 1.6 and CS:S combined. Get used to it.
2012-08-13 02:02:22
Get used to what? Where did I say that the game wont be popular? Also, I wont be buying it as many other people untill they hopefuly polish it someday. A game is a game. If someone dislikes it - he doesn't buy it. Simple as that.
2012-08-13 12:34:36

Best thing to happen to 1.6, with majority of there top players leaving to CS:GO,
about time they realize its a dying game, and wont get picked up in any big tournament anymore.

CS:GO is where the moneys at.
2012-08-10 14:23:16
But not the heart :)
2012-08-10 14:45:53
i think the same as you, but you and i know that sponsors dont give a fuck about the heart
2012-08-10 15:12:33
Sadly they are forced to play a bad game such as CS:GO to continue their lives as pro gamers.

2012-08-10 15:10:18
Don't be so sure because all forest gtr and xizt pracc csgo a lot, but i think that they must beat mousesports and mTw if they think to have any chance against VG :)

2012-08-10 14:31:28
nice move, NiP is a huge name in cs history, considering 1.6 doesnt have many tournaments left, the pro's have to move to greener pastures. Valve + pretty much all the big companies will give their full support to CS:GO in the beginning and check for response of the community, instead of fighting which version is better we should just unite and support CS:GO coz if this fails CS franchise is dead.
2012-08-10 14:32:24
Then so be it, if cs:go is the new "counter-strike" then it's already dead.
2012-08-10 14:36:01
"Unite and support CS:GO?"
How about we all just play the games we want to play? If the pros want to move to greener pastures because that's how they earn money then they are more than welcome to go ahead. Doesn't affect me in any way whatsoever.
2012-08-10 14:47:12
Or maybe they simply like to compete?
2012-08-10 15:29:39
Sure, whatever floats their boat!
2012-08-10 15:31:20
well i meant instead of bitching about how bad it is, I love 1.6 but I dont want to be against what CS:GO is doing.

Xizt would be the natural choice as he was fnatic's IGL having a great success in this role.
2012-08-10 14:41:58
Okay, I think Fifflarn was Caller in Source but you are probably right.
2012-08-10 14:49:14
I don't think it matters. So much aim here :D

if you cant understand why he is one of the best players ever, then thats because youre newschool. in 2002 nobody was as skilled as heaton, i tell you nobody
2012-08-10 14:57:03
trvh biggest hidin fanboy alive.

when someone somewhere on the world mentions the name heaton in a negative context, trvh will pop up to defend his role model.

heaton overrated noob player and u know it my friend

2012-08-10 15:16:54
hahaha. have i ever defended heaton before? youre just new, kiddo. he was the absolute best. and a player that has been the absolute best should be considered one of the best ever. if you cant understand that.. your problem
2012-08-10 15:19:37
He was awesome for his time, yes. But that doesn't change the fact that he sold himself to ZOWIE, BenQ and other gaming equipment companies. If he truly liked the game, he had countless chances for a comeback, but he chose to sell his nickname instead. That in my eyes, doesn't make him an admirable person.

lol, not everybody wants to be a cs 1.6 player forever. it makes him a human
2012-08-10 21:26:45
So basically every other decent pro player except Spawn and Heaton, which live out of advertising, aren't human?
2012-08-10 23:34:03
youre fucking dumb

2012-08-11 14:25:25
Hes trying to make money like everyone else on this planet you moron.
2012-08-14 03:04:19
Where did I say that he is not trying to make money you ape? What I was saying is that almost no other pro player besides him started making money out of advertising whatever they bring in front of his eyes. Learn to read before you use definitions.
2012-08-14 10:25:18
He and SpawN both did because they had stopped playing and had to make money another way.
2012-08-14 14:46:59
Many pro players stopped playing but they are the only ones living off advertising.
2012-08-14 17:29:46
They were the biggest in their time and that's probably why they got the jobs.
2012-08-14 19:19:10
How does that even make sense. What about the time after that or even the future? Noone except them.
2012-08-16 01:35:41
So what if they were the only ones doing it? What is your problem with them working with QPAD and BENQ? They developed mouses, screens and mousepads for gamers. And don't tell me HeatoN only does things for money because that's how this world works, if none of the tournaments would have any money in it, would the pros still play? No. Everything depends on money.
2012-08-16 13:29:39
Amazing logic you got there. So let's forgive the corrupt politics and other influential people because they are getting paid and the society suffers because of that? Don't reply anymore, please.
2012-08-16 22:24:20
Wtf are you talking about? They are getting payed by private companies.

here......
fuck off Xizt... he's just like f0rest and gtr. When they could have won EVERYTHING, they left fnatic for SK to win a couple of tournaments. Now Xizt left fnatic while he was on top and one of the best players in the world, to CSGO.... wtf!?
2012-08-10 15:36:48
I wanna would you do if you were them, they won't earn a lot of money playing 1.6, so you want them to keep playing to make you enjoy?!
2012-08-11 00:30:44
games are for entertainment, if they want money, they go to work on some business.
It's alright if sponsors give money for people to play the games, I also like earning money doing what I like, but cmon, it's obvious that you can't make a whole living out of it

look at fox. he plays 1.6 and he works at the same time. He recieves money from K1CK's org, but obviously it's not enough. and 1.6 doesn't give you money to live either, so he also has a job, which grants the money for him to live nice. There are a lot of things here in portugal that give tons more money than 1.6, but he still plays 1.6.

I enjoy playing the game, I don't really enjoy the players
2012-08-14 04:33:13
Dude you're fucking retarded, they are trying to live om the salary they get from playing, and if someone is offering alot more ofc they take it, dont hate players, hate the game.
2012-08-14 03:08:27
if they want a salary, go to work on a store, etc. I don't really hate the players, i could not care less about the game they play, but the more players in 1.6, the better. Btw, it's obvious that gtr and f0rest are greedy.
2012-08-14 04:24:46
carn return to fnatic please !
2012-08-10 14:41:42
HAHAHAHHAAHAH.

First of all I'd like to say It's sad what would people do for $.

Team had won GameGune and had such perspective to do very well in the future and the guy just leaves the team for a shitty game and some $. Could do the same when Source was out or am I mistaken??!

By this I'm also pointing at that big headed guy who calls himself HeatoN. When he was playing the game no one tried to kill it like like he's trying now.

HeatoN products failed so u had to find the way to earn money son? This ain't fair way to do it

coming from top end 1.6 and CSS background, you get to a stage where sponsorship allows you to do amazing things, i've been able to travel around all of europe and get money from playing games. 1.6 Internationally isn't as big as it use to, CPL days/World tour was absolutely sick.. CSS hand a hint of what kind of money could be made playing in the CGS, if all the rumors ive heard with tournaments coming up for CS:GO there will be serious money to be made, not only that but you will see more 'top end' teams being salaried and used for endorsements... I absolutely love watching 1.6 over CSS personally, but ability to bring communities together, you won't understand how big it will be until this time in 1-2years time - and bare in mind yes this is a hobby but when you get offered money to play for fun at a high level, it's a smart move, these players can capitalize on the start of something that could potential be massive

2012-08-10 14:52:04
true maybe?
2012-08-10 15:20:57
ofc. pretty sure that valve paid them to play go so that everybody play too. If you look at it it's a good strategy.

2012-08-10 15:05:03
lol why are u wasting your time on defending xizt ?

why bother .. u ain't gonna change someone's opinion just like that

i'm with xizt on this one cuz he made an amazing decision
2012-08-10 15:18:06
no, im just trying to make ppl open their eyes
2012-08-10 15:35:53

2012-08-11 02:40:58
it's in my nature
2012-08-11 02:46:41
Although I don't agree with lukstib he has the right to criticise xizt for whatever reasons he believes because some people in 1.6 community look up to him.

So don't compare him buying a new pair of shoe or you buying a shiny new tampon with xizt leaving fnatic because others don't give a fuck about trivial matters.
2012-08-10 15:42:21
Why so much hate towards him, dude? Chill down...
2012-08-10 15:51:33
Jesus christ. I have the right to critise Xizt because he's a professional, and I also have a right to an opinion... He made his own choise and I'm not supportive of it, so why should I accept it right away? I don't approve it, and I'm bloody gonna say just that, but ofcourse there's nothing I can do about it.

I've been a fnatic fan for a couple of years and it's only natural for me to be angry when a player just does something like this. In fact, this is similar to what GTR and f0rest did, and I don't think you went all NERDRAGE on someone who might've done the same thing as I did. Oh that's right, the two are your boyfriends...

I made my own fucking choise to critise Xizt for the decision he has made, and you should accept it.

Dno why ppl are raging at xizt, gtr, forest.. thats so fucking stupid.
2012-08-10 15:09:23

Yea, you RESPECT/DISRESPECT ppl because they are not play CS 1.6. Good logic.. you have no respect for a lot of ppl then.. I wonder if you are gonna have same oppinion for ESC when they switch for cs:go too..

yeah, that or they like getting payed to play video games, be treated like "superstars" and travel over the world
2012-08-10 15:45:48
they are superstars of the game that they have to play coz they dont know how to make money in other way than playing shitty game :)

2012-08-10 15:06:23
They can play whatever they want. No one can force this community to play/watch a game that they don't like. CS:S community may switch to CS:GO but it's really small community when you compare it to 1.6. sponsors won't pay a game for 1.5k viewers.
We're gonna see how many organisations will pick CS:GO.

2012-08-10 15:12:47
I meant, I want them to switch to csgo, but in their old line-up.
2012-08-10 15:17:19
but they need at least 2 source players to stick with them, like in NiP now, it will be easier for them
2012-08-10 15:18:53
why do they?
2012-08-10 17:41:18

I like your use of vocab, very smart. You just repeat the same things over & over, and continue to call me 'fat' when I am far from it, like I said, move on with your life, you pig.
2012-08-11 14:53:31

2012-08-10 15:25:46
I don't think so, just doesn't interest me enough and the game is poorly designed, even CSS is better.
2012-08-10 15:29:14
I disagree with that, but it would be good to see you back :P
2012-08-10 15:33:35
Maybe it'll get better, just my opinion, but I've played it enough to see that it is just a "fun" game like TF2, the guns have no feel to them it just isn't Counter-Strike anymore, if I'm called upon i'll be back, but its doubtful :P

And the game has no skill set/level to it, you don't have to play it to be good at it, its too basic because the guns have nothing to master, or the movement.

play it 4 the money like all players who switched on it :)

Again theres another proof how much fucking stupid 1.6 community is.

Now when most of pro 1.6 players are swithing to csGO. Will u call them noobs who cant play serious games ? U remember that 1.6 is the only CS with skill right ?

No ? Cos thats exactly what happend few years back.

HLTV and 1.6 community so stupid. I dont even wonder why is term "1.6 community" being used as an insultting word in other games.

I also hope that csgo will succes, cos i just wanna see more people here crying same shit 1.6 TOO STRONK´AND 4EVA

Holy shit, what the fuck are you on about? No one with some actual knowledge would say that "1.6 is the only CS with skill." Compared to CSS, yes 1.6 takes more skill in my opinion. But that's CSS, not GO.

2012-08-10 15:44:41
I think so, although I barely have time to play 1.6 anyway :)
2012-08-10 18:20:39
Valve said this wasn't even intended to be played professionally and have strongly suggested that a cs 2 is coming. It's unfortunate to see this since they might be discouraged to make that game which would probably be better when csgo already seems to be getting the job done. Or perhaps it's completely the other way around and they will see the potential for cs 2 through this.

On topic, as a fanboy
WOOOOOOO! NIP! yeah!
2012-08-10 15:31:33
Valve could open the BETA to public like DotA 2 and work so much harder to make this game better.
But you can only reach BETA by pre-ordering. 2 topics per day in steam forum (count all topics are made for feedback). Rarely gameplay updates.
That's a evidence that CS:GO is only made for get more money by using "Counter-Strike" name

In before huge influx of 1.6ers onto CS:GO...


2012-08-10 15:34:39
You guys are so ignorant and stupid sometimes. You have to realize that people need to make money and a salary while playing and you just can't do that anymore even if Xizt and co. were to win whatever was left of 1.6 prizes. It's become a semi-competitive/casual game now and CS:GO seems to be the future of Counter-Strike. Source pros AND 1.6 pros are switching over. There's money in the game and when there's money in the game people are switching over. The old Brood War teams from Starcraft held off as long as they could in Korea but have now began to switch over because Brood War simply does not have any money left and Starcraft 2 has all the money and sponsorships. If CS:GO can launch off like Starcraft 2 did, then it will be a huge success and will bring back the old days of professional first person shooters, despite the way the game runs. It's about the money guys, people need to eat and live, we can't all live in our parents' basements and go no where.

I wish him the best of luck and of course i'll follow cs:go scene as i did with 1.6
stop being so childish

It was the same deal back when CS:S came out. Some players switched because of CGL or whatever the big televised league was called. Then, once people are finished with milking the inferior game for the money, they'll return to the superior title. Which is and always has been CS 1.6
2012-08-10 16:59:21
The point is, it's not the same.

Not just one tournament has dropped 1.6 this time. All of them have. There are zero big tournaments in 1.6 now, so it's not worth it.

And let's be honest, CGS was created 2 years AFTER Source came out.
2012-08-13 10:29:05
Get_right wasn't lying earlier. They were just rumors back then, spread by cadred. Factors changed and that lead to this (perhaps, oh I don't know, SK dropping 1.6 after that had something to do with then making this move).
2012-08-10 16:59:55

2012-08-10 19:39:50
BTW they are nolifers they will go where $$$$$$$$ is baby,all they care about is money and not the game.

They suck @ life they can do nothing


Also,to play this game you would need a pc with a good gfx which i cant afford atleast
2012-08-10 19:42:29
You don't need a good computer to play cs:go. My old comp is like 4 years old and it works just fine.

2012-08-11 09:07:19
you must be getting low fps then..or do u get full fps??I got c2d 2.8 ghz, and i think i will get 40 50 fps..
Thats BSHIT

Well i don't get the maximum fps which is 300 on cs:go. I get like 80 on medium details and 1280x720 resolution. If you get stable 60 or more on cs:go, it's enough. On cs 1.6 you have to get stable 100 fps or your spray will get really shitty. On cs:go aiming and spraying don't depend on your fps.

And I have to ask.. have even tried the game? Because you sure have negative attitude towards cs:go.
2012-08-11 18:49:37
YEA i did at my freinds house he had the beta key... i didnt like the maps they were too foggy, the movement sucked and most important i wasnt getting the classic counter strike feeling
2012-08-11 19:56:17
Yeah they suck at life and you can't even afford a decent pc, gtfo poor retard
2012-08-12 08:02:43

Really? I thought that players who played CS 1.6 when it started will play or atleast do something for the game version , but now i see that they only think in money and no in the spirit and the feeling that u feel when u play CS 1.6
2012-08-10 20:07:15
I just hope Valve developes CS 2..
2012-08-10 20:09:00
They will if CS:GO is a success. They won't if it fails (why, because you really think it would be worth them doing another game when one has failed?)
2012-08-13 10:31:37

2012-08-10 20:09:01
i cant understand why so many rage kids and fanboys are blaming gtr foresr and everybody which are plating cs:go ,because this is the only way to watch your favourite players playing again ;) is it better if every pro player retires? because in cs 1,6 there is no place to compete anymore ,maybe 2-3 tournaments left and thats it the game is almost dead already and those pro playera they are continuing playing cuz they love playing and earn money from something they love and sometimes world needs some changes if you know what im talking about ,and about cspromod ... there is no money and sponsorship and no tournaments and no bright future at least for now so what they are suppose to do? playing cs 1,6 for you for free only cuz rage stupid kids wants that ?

And those who see this an unjustified or shameful move, do remember that these guys earn money via these games, when scene changes they swith as well very similar to the case of an IT Professional who switches job for a better package.

NiP moving fast to get some decent lineup for this game aside of bringing back the name of the most remembered powerhouses in CS 1.6 history. Time will tell if the story will continue with CS:GO.
As for Xizt and all the comments about him leaving fnatic and doing so in order to play CS:GO, well, it seems, as far as I understand it, he didn't want to wait in order to see what fnatic may have come up with and maybe thought that way he would waste some precious time.

My props to fnatic for staying true to CS 1.6 until the very end and also looking forward to see what they choose to do once the last song has finished to play.
2012-08-10 23:50:00
here we go
2012-08-11 00:03:02

Promod should be the version professionals turn to, I mean in an ideal world 1.6 would stay forever as it is still and always will be a better game...

I hope they succeed fame of 1.6 in GO

2012-08-11 05:57:25
Nip switched to go? then it's a good game !
2012-08-11 08:32:19
Sounds interesting. Will be fun to see nip performing in their first big event on cs:go. Whenever it is :)
2012-08-11 09:03:08
actually they played yesterday Go4CsGo #6 and they're in the final !! so I guess they're performing quiet well
2012-08-13 03:52:24
Too bad i missed it? Do you know the score?
2012-08-13 07:58:05
They won over gekas (swedish team with pronax and pita) 16-0 on de_nuke in the semi-finals. now they're up against Mangojuice from denmark in the final! the date is yet to be determined

Xizt is so FUCKING crazy at this game
2012-08-11 11:27:45
I don't get why so many 1.6 players are acting like this? Not to say ONLY 1.6 players are acting out on CS:GO, but seriously, how can people actually think, that people wanna stick to the same game, with the same maps, and the same position of objects for 12 years?
CS:GO is new yes, but that doesn't destine it to failure! Most of the people in here (HLTV) haven't even tried it, yet they just trash talk it, as if they had any clue, of how great the game can become! It still has its flaws, but not every game was created perfect. You don't see 1.6 being named 1.6 for no reason. And just because the graphics look like it, CS:GO is NOTHING like CoD or BF.

i like everything you said but just not the part about playing the same game for 12 years.


Playing the same map for 12 years they dont care about that i guess because they are competitive and are well build.

If they wouldnt like to play many times the same maps with same objects they would have stopped playing after a year or 2.

Valve is putting the same names and same maps for each new version of cs (css and cs go). why ?
because they are great maps thats all.

cs 1.6 is dropped > no sponsors
cs go > new game / new sponsors
2012-08-13 20:06:25

What ? NiP? Its not your clanteg, you cant steal this legendary ctg for this stupid game, and line up.
2012-08-13 09:48:09
Obviously they can.
2012-08-13 20:10:12
why ?
2012-08-13 21:23:28
Weak team.
2012-08-13 16:15:55
Picking up friberg and fiflaren was a bad choice imo because they dont have the pro esport experience of the other players. I mean, f0rest can own at any game (especially FPS games) he plays because he treats it from a professional point of view. These 2 source players will not raise to the expectations, mark my words!

CS:GO is a shit game right now. Much like source. It is not an esport!
I remember a german Deltaforce 4 LAN event with a 10.000$ prize purse where a lot of improvised "teams" showed up and eventually some guys who found an exploitable feature of the game won the event. That is the difference between a game and an esport. Just as DF4, CS:GO is not an esport right now, it is random, annoying and not fun to watch at all!

Since nobody is supporting cs1.6 anymore i hope that CS:GO will evolve into an esport someday, but changes should be drastic! The only thing that could keep cs1.6 afloat is the involvement of guys like Murat Arbalet. I wonder how he feels about one of his favorite games slowly dying? (Nix0n do an interview!!! :D)
2012-08-13 21:32:22
To Say that Friberg and Fifflarn got no experience is actully only BS. They have been to alot of lans and if im not misstagen Fifflarn also played IN CGS.

Just becuse they never played at 1.6 lans dont mean that they havent attended lans.
