NiP has managed to win yet another tournament in Prague, as they defeated VeryGames 2-0 (16-9 de_nuke_ve, 16-11 de_inferno_se). The third place decider went to myDGB, who defeated BuyKey 2-0.
VeryGames managed to win the opening terrorist side pistol round on de_nuke_ve thanks to one-on-three heroics from Nathan "NBK" Schmitt, but NiP's second round buy quickly tied the game and shifted momentum.
NiP went on to win six straight rounds, led by Christopher "GeT_RiGhT" Alesund, but the Frenchmen started getting into the game right after, winning three of the next five to make it 4-8, with NiP on the verge of having to save.
That was not meant to be however as they traded the final three rounds in a fashion that allowed them to keep their money up at all times, and ended the half up 10-5 with Alesund at 21 frags.
Second half saw VG dig themselves into an even deeper hole, as their failed push outside allowed NiP to plant the bomb on the lower site where Patrik "f0rest" Lindberg's pair of Desert Eagle kills and a one-on-one win won the round.
First gun round went to NiP, as well as the following save round, giving the Swedes map point at 15-5. VeryGames mounted a short lived comeback by winning four straight rounds, but NiP closed out the map at 16-9.
VeryGames won the pistol round as terrorists on de_inferno_se, followed up by two save rounds from NiP. Fourth round saw Schmitt and Cédric Guipouy win a two-on-two, with VG going up 5-0.
Round six saw Lindberg and Richard "Xizt" Landström pick up two kills each as NiP got on board with their first round. VG lost the next round as well before succesfully force buying with two saved weapons, but then NiP struck back, winning six straight rounds.
VG won the final round of the half and the counter-terrorist pistol round, but NiP's Desert Eagle buy won them the second round once again. Round three saw VG go up in a two-on-one, but Adam "friberg" Friberg got his team the win.
Next round was in a three-on-three, but Alesund's flank allowed him to pick up three AK47 kills as he bolstered his score to 26/12. VeryGames traded the next couple of rounds, which allowed NiP to go up 14-9.
Kévin "Ex6TenZ" Droolans won a one-on-one for his team, but NiP instantly won a round back to force game point. The match was seconds from being over, but time ran out on the next round with NiP up in numbers.
That was all she sang for VeryGames though, as the Ninjas managed to once again come out on top, with Alesund and Robin "Fifflaren" Johansson winning a two-on-four situation in the B site to win 16-11.
In the third place decider the only team with local support, myDGB.net, defeated Adil "ScreaM" Benrlitom's BuyKey 2-0 (16-9 on de_mirage_csgo and 16-13 on de_nuke_ve) to claim $4,000.

This now marks the fourth consecutive event where NiP has taken down VeryGames 2-0 in the grand finals. Next up for NiP will be Thor Open in Stockholm on December 8-9, while VeryGames hasn't announced plans for more events in 2012.
however, NiP seems to have a lineup with people who are very determined to pracc hard. i mean, they have GeT_RiGhT, the biggest cs lover in history for christ sakes. but also the other guys that haven't been quite as successful before are probably still hungry for more.
of course the human body has limits, and they won't practice as hard as they're doing now forever... but Im pretty sure they will still be unbeatable for some months, I don't want to say years... but damn :/
This current vg lineup just aint strong enough individually , and even in source they failed with this lineup at the biggest Lan cph games 2012 coming like 8-12th lol.

That was RpK, NBK, Ex6TenZ, Apex and mK
Actually, I didn't count SteelSeries GO up there since it wasn't international, but if we count that to, then it's 33-0-0 on LAN.
So, in case we count matches, they are 29-0-0 and if we count maps they have 41-0-0.
37 / 1 / 0
WRTT was banned
but i don't know why match vs Western Wolves isn't in stats
GJ f0rp, Xizt, GTR and the two new random players.

4. myDGB.net / BuyKey
they will see the demos from the match, they will see the errors they made,then they will prevent thoose errors i think.
when they manage to do all that,thoose stupid errors, we will have a huge match between thoose guys.
In the last matches i saw NiP vs Random team, in this one i saw NiP vs VG with some kind of stupid plays but a real strong team.

They need to get more experience.

I saw at least 3 rounds, that could be VG rounds, and they lost by stupid ways, i think with more experience , they will stop doing those mistakes.
And thoose anti-eco rounds, wow, i dont know how they do that.They won pistol-round and loose a gun round against pistols.
In css i think they would make thoose mistakes, but, with such aim they had in css, they could fix it with aim.
Second, am not really sure what aim VG guys had back in source, but do you have any idea what aim GTR, forest and Xizt had in 1.6?
P.S: VG won't know what hit them once Navi and ESC get a hang of this game.
2nd-i dont know what game you saw, but i only saw exp. talking in the game NiP vs VG, you cant see way better aim now,
like before, in terms of aim, VG are catching NiP . RPK you could say that is the one who has the better aim in VG right now, and he can put a fight in aim against forest/gtr i think IMO.
P.S. why VG won't know what hit them ? aer they machines/robots?
they dont make mistakes?
Theres no one better then them?
wow i forgot they came from 1.6, so they are better from the css guys.
So sad to see them loose, when RpK makes such a big play.
The guy is fucking insane

Did you not see the huge plays he did?
He was fucking insane man. Did some crazy shots
They need to use SmithZz's awp abilities more cause he was crazy with the awp in css.

NiP even more ofc, but some mistakes at inferno cost VG the match.
I dont understand why VG win pistol round and loose against and eco next, they should do the pistol round twice .
But VG playd very well, no doubts that they are the team who can take off the leadership from NiP.
Gtr and forest, hmm i dont have any words to describe thoose guys,they are like robots made for kill, they dont make mistakes .
The best final so far btw, enjoyed it
The gap between NiP and the rest is getting smaller though.
"ScreaM" does 4 oneshots against ESC and then he is the best csgo player? Enough about "ScreaM" for now.
Congratz NiP! :)
Give them a little credit.
edit: I don't care if in 2013 other teams will be better. Right at this moment they are the second best team.

They need to take it to the next level as soon as possible .. they are not even close to beat NiP atm, and they are the only team who faced them so much @ finals..
And if someone from VeryGames reading this know that even on HLTV.org THERE ARE people who cheer for you and wish you all the best.
Afterall when lurppis and users of this site were badmouthing CSGO you were the ones who asked them to give it a chance.
Well played Team VeryGames :>
overall stats from all games ;)
What about WRRTT? , oh yeah "Cheat"
hope ESC, fnatic and na'vi will come back to the top as well:)

Shit game and nothing special winning a LAN playing game that barely requires much skill... the transition from 1.6 to source is sort of like tennis to swingball.
eXtensive! showed real good skill and they are capable to make a lot of damage to VeryGames and NiP, then we have ESC who is every time better and better, then BuyKey who had threaten NiP in their game. Then myDGB made a lot of Damage to VeryGames but unfortunately they didn't play against NiP. k1ck pretty impressive.
I think it will be more interesting in 2013 :)
Verygames(with new lineup)
DGB (they were really really awesome and they were worlds best in css for some time)
Mouz.uk are very good and there is a chance that they will make good progress. The rest of the list is also pretty amazing so next year a tons of interesting matches are coming :)

I dont care if you get biased sometimes (and i dont ), its awesome how you read the game because casters like rizc and moE who have 0 semi-pro gaming experience make for a dreadful watch.

css players have the advantage in csgo at the beginning
even scream or shox join VG
they can hardly beat ESC NIP fnatic or even Navi in the future
1.6 was more unpredictable
go needs more chalengging teams
NiP = Get_right +4
pd: CS:GO = the worst cs series ever
And then NIP have a beast on there side...GeT_RiGhT.
