Ninjas in Pyjamas have defeated VeryGames in what looked like a very one-sided game for the first three halves, 2-0 (16-3 on de_dust2_se, 16-14 on de_train_se) and won the first place prize of $10,000.
NiP quickly won the opening pistol round as counter-terrorists on de_dust2_se as VeryGames' middle to B attack didn't pan out as planned. Next save rounds were over quickly, as NiP lost a few members but still went up 3-0.
Fourth round saw Nathan "NBK" Schmitt score two entry frags, but a pair of kills from both Patrik "f0rest" Lindberg and Christopher "GeT_RiGhT" Alesund gave NiP their fourth round, forcing VG on a save.
Round six saw NiP push outside of long A to the T spawn, and left in a two-on-two situation Lindberg and Adam "friberg" Friberg prevailed. VeryGames then attempted taking catwalk, but were once again gunned down by the Swedes.
Kévin "Ex6TenZ" Droolans had a one-on-one in round ten, but Friberg sprayed him at long, now practically ridiculing VeryGames with a 10-0 lead on the harder side of the map.
The Frenchmen finally won their first round at 1-11, but NiP in-game leader Richard "Xizt" Landström's three M4A4 kills and an assist devasteted VG's long take attempt. Next round Lindberg rushed middle thinking VG was saving and scored three M4A4 headshots, while Landström rushed long for the last two kills.
Edouard "SmithZz" Dubourdeaux was left in a one-on-four in the final round of the half, that saw the Ninjas absolutely crush their opponents, as they went up 14-1 on the harder counter-terrorist side of de_dust2_se.
VeryGames finally woke up in the second half, as Cédric "RpK" Guipouy's play on catwalk allowed them to win the round. NiP managed a bomb plant on their save round, and went for an early buy.
Lindberg's entry and Robin "Fifflaren" Johansson's three AK47 kills gave NiP a map point on their first buy as they attacked the B bombsite, and a similar attack in the next round closed the win for NiP with Alesund's two kills, 16-3.
Next map was de_train_se, where Schmitt's two P250 entry frags allowed his team to win the pistol round and gain an early 3-0 lead, the same number of rounds they managed to win in the entire first map.
VeryGames' inner fake to outer didn't work on round four as Friberg scored three headshots to stop the attack. Save towards inner got them two kills, as Alesund's auto sniper mowed down three terrorists.
NiP once again scored an easy win on the next round largely uncontested outside, and after VG's save round they regained the lead at 4-3. Next round came down to a one-on-one after Lindberg's three M4A4 kills, but Johansson's grenade took down Droolans.
Next round VG managed to penetrate NiP's defense in alley and went all the way into inner, but Alesund's two kills on the retake won NiP, who also scored the following save round without problems, the round.
After losing nine rounds in a row, Friberg once again shut VG down with three kills. Second to last round was littledifferent, as Lindberg got the entry and Friberg scored four frags to make it 11-3.
VeryGames wouldn't stop trying to attack alley in the last round, as Friberg added two more frags to his collection of 18. It wasn't enough though, as Kenny "kennyS" Schrub, who literally carried his team in the semi-final versus Area51, clutched a one-on-two in the inner site.
The Frenchmen seemed to have caught some momentum from Schrub's round win, as they won the counter-terrorist pistol round as well as NiP's third round buy, setting themselves up with a 5-0 lead and finally some money control as NiP saved twice.
The Ninjas' outer attack was then shut down by the French incendiary grenades, but they successfully won a round at inner right after, putting them up 12-9. Friberg and Alesund then clutched a two-on-three, giving them their thirteenth round.
NiP then won their fourteenth round, as VG had to save. Next round came down to the wire, but Schrub could not match Alesund's fire power in a direct head-to-head duel, as NiP gained their first match point.
Next two rounds came both down to unfavorable one-on-one's for NiP, as Guipouy and Schmitt kept VG's hopes alive, while forcing NiP on a save round, cutting their deficit down to 12-15.
VeryGames won the next two rounds, but Johansson managed to win a one-on-two situation from brownhall, starting from a two-on-four with Landström, and clinch NiP a 16-14 and 2-0 overall victory at ESWC 2012.
ESWC 2012 final standings:
1. NiP - $10,000
2. VeryGames - $6,000
3. Area51 - $4,000
5-6. ESC Gaming
While our coverage is over from Paris with ESWC wrapped up, you can expect more highlight clips to pop up in the coming days as our movie crew gets to work. HLTV.org will next head to Jönköping, Sweden for DreamHack Winter 2012 on November 22-24.

To bouby313: as the guy above has already said the 2 source players for NiP in this event were much more influential than the 1.6 guys, and not just in the final.
perhaps they will keep the lineup till they lose

NiP > VG Anyday Anytime
Ps: Look at your level Of mentality and be ashamed.
IGC was planned to be a scam everybody knew it except of some retarded noobs like you who thought it'll succeed.
And be more precise from now on, what the fuck do you mean by "indian scam"? If you're putting some facts then do it properly.
What's up now sAucers?
look at the overall stats please. Thanks, bye.
However, maybe this game is fun to play, but sure as hell isn't to watch.
P.S. The sauce is no chili.
Well played from NiP, the VG playstyle is not working now. They must change that and if they want a chance to win NiP, they have to make a bootcamp.
Great playstyle from NiP and very good skill players, the 1vs3 from GeT_RiGhT on de_train was crazy, this guys is on another planet he can bring a big pressure, this is crazy !

P.S. funny moment on de_train when somebody shot with awp in forest's knees and killed him in head. nice game
vg has tons of executions and clearly set plans, while nip plays more freely but because they are, clearly i might add, much more skilled, it still works great for them
If they can match up with aim, no way NiP win.
You could see in train,where is way more tactical map, 16-14.
NiP rounds were 1 smoke, and rush , and that aim JIZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ.
VG is way more tactical gamestyle then NiP.
GG NIP and VG.

Then ECO, etc...
Then VG made some mistakes that couldnt happen.
Like that pistol at T, jizz, get_right almost clutch ? LOL
VG playd very well, NiP even better. thats it
I'm disappointed about VG's play, I expected a very tight game with 3 map..
Can't wait for [email protected], they will show us some skill.. :p
look at the prize money
last year the first place got 12k and it was 1.6

they are new yet, but already beat 2 saurces team overrated
if i'm not wrong the danes that ESC beat was top2 ESWC 2011
Post edited 2012-11-04 17:27:16
And probably FM Toxic as a 9th or 10th place.
ESC beat the best danes and best UK saurces on cs:go
Post edited 2012-11-04 17:39:15
mTw are having roster problems and mousesports are not really playing anymore. You asked for the best source teams.
and man, right now anexis is the best team from denmark and toxic from UK. they won qualify
Post edited 2012-11-04 18:12:49
Source is dead. So i give you the best teams from when source was still going. That is what you asked for. Anexis was not the best team in Denmark. Not now and not then. They were the best team on the day for the qualifiers but not in general.
Toxic is the best UK team because mousesports doesn't really play anymore. And besides that the UK scene is very weak. Toxic as i stated further up woudl maybe make it in the top10 as 9th or 10th place.
Yes weber and cajun are good players from source but are both playing in new teams that's not as good as their old teams. It's a teamgame.
And pleeease if you reply. Use soem common sense and logic please.
barca 6-2 zaragoza : it's NOT interesting.
do you understand ?
cs:go stronk, in ten years Nip will be remembered as the first world champion, just like in 1.6
great play, great tournament
friberg is sick: mvp of final, and guess what? he comes from source
1.6 fanboys are crying and mad
Post edited 2012-11-04 17:18:58
Anyways I'll paraphrase it for you in case you are really that dumb.
Since you are obviously a saucer, it must feel good that the team that dominated your beloved game for almost its entire life is getting fisted so badly.
But its good that you find it comforting that its being fisted by couple of your own saucers who by the way were NO-NAMERS up until NiP picked them up.
i'm not a saucer, i never played that game
I'm just a guy who supports cs:go and like the game.
what else do you expect when you flame 1.6 on hltv.org
Fact of the matter is, both Fifflaren and Friberg have been dominating every team they've played. They have been so perfect at executing their roles on the team, and they could easily top the scoreboards in any given match.
To replace either of those players would set back NiP an unfair amount, where they would need to spend months getting their fifth player accustomed to everything they have figured out as a team. They also have no reason to even consider that, considering they haven't lost a map on LAN yet.
GG NiP!!! Absolutely dominant at the moment!
friberg and fifflaren have 0 source tournament wins, they are only in NiP because the 1.6ra needed help with the engine.
they wouldn't be playing the ESWC if not for their 3 teammates.

Dust 2 was just a total massacre, no comments.
Great job Nip, you really deserved that gold medal!
Sorry but if i wasn't a cs fan i wouldn't of known that ESWC was even going at the moment.
GO has nothing on 1.6
It is a low level game and the sad fact is we/you have to play it and watch it.
Wich makes things even more dire for the cs community it will die out like the Quake sadly GO has no potential.
Proven again NiP over every one with easy wins.
Sad game is sad, boring finals were boring and if any one expected anything else i guess you mates are just dreamers.

I feel kinda sad now. Males have been completely sidelined by females.
cs:go got in first big tournament like 10x more viewers than cs 1.6 got in most followed 1.6 final
cs:go already so much more popular than 1.6 ever was, as i expected
Post edited 2012-11-04 17:44:09
They deserve a news :D
Btw, congrats NiP.
Facts are there you might like the new change good for you i think its complete and utter garbage.
Yes there better games out there then 1.6 but they are not called counter-strike.
CS:GO is supposed to be the next big step bringing both communitys together and all that jazz but to be honest it just turned in to another source snore fest.
Stop denying it because even if your blind your eyes will get gauged out with the sourceness in this pathetic try of a new counter strike.
That been said yet again by me i do hope they update it some day so it becomes a better over all game then 1.6.
But at the moment it is simply just not.
Sadly the money are in this game not something better in the FPS scene so till they figure out how to actually make this watchable and enjoyable i'll stay away and avoid tournaments like the plague.
Have fun watching this garbage.
17 streams and 250 235 viewers in total..without counting the gotv spectators
cs:go got in first big tournament like 10x more viewers than cs 1.6 got in most followed 1.6 final
cs:go already so much more popular than 1.6 ever was, as i expected
dark maps and garbage on every place, the guys from valve need to know what is a sun.

If VG were playing 1.6 instead of css they would have been a mediocore team and in css they are the best???
Post edited 2012-11-04 19:25:52
and now....where is that pro "ritch" who said that friberg is noob and he is low on lan" where are you idiot? :)
Dust2 was just ridiculous, VG were good, but NiP was one level above them. No, not just individual play, but VGs strong point, tactics, was trashed, because NiP were playing very agressively and pulled out a lot suprise attacks VG players didn`t expect. Having good strats is one thing, but NiP trumped it over with dynamical play.
I guess it was lack of experience and VG probably haven`t experienced such play against themselves yet.

In my opinion this game runs too much fast. I never tried to play GO and probably won't do it as well since I don't have time for it - but it seems like everyone is rushing too much , players lost their calm ingame.
Can't really remember too much situations of nice slow tactics like we had in CS 1.6 , also on clutch situations players from the side who got the advantage tend to rush instead of using the advantage of time.
In CS 1.6 players knew how to play slow and smart - in CS:GO it looks like they adapt the style of "spray N pray" while rushing and throwing nades.
This tournament was nice , better from the previous one since this time we could see a bigger list of good teams - but I'm quite disappointed from the gameplay and from the level. Teams can be, and will be much better in the future - for the moment .. I can't see a brilliant team, not even NiP.
Oh and please STOP using this mode which allows you to see CT & T players with some strange yellow / blue aura throw walls !
The game is full with graphics and details , please don't add more crap to it - you're destroying my eyes -_-
f0rest GeT_RiGhT Xizt MODDII Delpan
OMG! Unf***ingbeatable 1.6 lineup, but BB and farewell to CS 1.6 !
btw if they put any other top 1.6 players from sweden they will still be the best team.. nip + moddi would be fun....still they are unstopabble this way... but source players stop saying that the source duo makes the diference. u know its not true. put them in any other team.. and theyll be like top 6/7. the difference is playing with getright forest and xizt..and playing against them :D
very very low, specially when you consider Valve made GO free to play for ESWC's weekend...
I kinda feel bad for Valve cause even making CS:GO free didn't increase the number of viewers dramatically. Keeping in mind that they draw spectators from 2, even 3 communities -.-'
Cs1.6 and source is finished, stop fucking mentioning it you geek.

I watched all games from ESC in ESWC and they were already a really good competition to other teams, because of their strategies and skills to execute those strategiss are in such a high level. The reason ESC dropped in the groupstage was because their poor aim in cs:go. Once they get their aim to hit something, they will wipe the floor with teams like Anexis etc.
Source for the last 2-3 years has had maybe 1 or 2 teams with salaries top with 1-2 big international lans a year.
1.6 has had tons of salaried teams with shit like IEM and tons of huge international tournies where they have to play at a higher level.
