Such a mystery... like they just trashed big but can’t beat shit teams in premier. I’m guessing it’s all the pressure.

Pressure of wanting to join a major so badly to get up there again, but can't because choking. Sadly. I know it from myself back in the 1.6 days when I started trying to attend for tournaments (amateur and later on semi-pro sort of in Denmark). I choked a lot. Still do during some matches.

they are falling nip are on the rise
2017-10-18 16:15
sure, you cant rise if you are on top, and cant fall if you are in the bottom
2017-10-18 16:25
well sk hasn't been on the top for many months faze is on the top. nip vs sk today would be close and a fun game in my opinion nip vs sk 6 moths ago would be all sk
2017-10-18 16:56
hltv.org/ranking/teams/2017/october/9 hltv.org/ranking/teams/2017/october/16 Faze took top 1 in october 16th, till then was SK, that was 2 days ago are you this bad in math ?? =/
2017-10-18 17:00
thing is sk is falling off nip is getting better a game between the 2 would be close and a game 6 months ago would 16-0 for sk. that said my meaning is that nip is on the rise and sk is falling
2017-10-18 17:19
they just failed another major qualifier this time losing to PRIDE (tier7) Number 36 in the Ranking. how can they be on the rise ?
2017-10-18 17:24
that was in an online b01. if you compare their tournament results and overall results compared to 6 moths ago you'll see how much better they've gotten
2017-10-18 17:41
yeah but a team with the size of NiP can't stay out of majors, even if the are playing online matches.
2017-10-18 18:59
well the swiss system is overused. imo it should'nt be used in a qual

I mean to be fair, NiP has so much potential as a team. Dreamhack Malmo is a quality example of the potential to which they can play. You will see a lot from them in ESL and IEM Oakland for sure.
2017-10-17 21:02
Even tho I am a NiP fan I don't think so..NiP probably need to disband or shuffle players with fnatic to make a better Sweden scene

dont get me wrong NiP is one of my favorite teams, but i don't think fnatic want to ruin their current roster even more. NiP just need to ditch Xizt for someone like dennis or disco doplan. GeT_RiGhT is still a good igl, f0rest is back to his godly old ways, and REZ and draken are still fresh, Xizt either needs to step up or step off the team.
2017-10-18 17:38
I think xizt rez and get_right should switch either one maybe I would still want to give more time to rez but xizt and even Get_right are really not the old god like, forest is still strong and carrying along with draken

No Idea Why they dont trade with Godsent. I am sure they could get Twist and Dennis for REZ and Xizt, Godsent isn't going anywhere and they're looking for an IGL. NiP could go for the FaZe approach with Dennis doing the in game leading, with players like Dennis,Twist,f0rest, and Draken you're bound to get a good game out of at least 1-2 players a game.
2017-10-18 16:32
Dennis said he never wanted to IGL ever again.

ofc its the pressure, friberg said this already after the last qualifier, in a bo3 or on lan nip would beat every team on the closed qualifier.

u know why, cos they have big ego to prepare for ''low'' teams so they are going full yolo without tact/anti strats, they just think its 2014 and that they just outaim them.

With all the cheaters and all the garbage that happened in the EU minor qualifier i don't think NiP should be to pissed, pro VAC wave incoming after Boston major.

You are right, steel
2017-10-18 17:40
They need a coach/IGL that will put them straight sometimes. They do need tactical input, like they do from Threat and Xizt, but they also need a drill sergeant that can tell them to stop what they're doing and not be stupid. A lot of the games they are losing are due to the fact that they "forget" to be in positions to trade, or peek corners without nades, or sometimes even without a plan to do anything with it afterwards. It's frustrating to watch, because as a seasoned player, I know I wouldn't be making those mistakes as often as they do, and they are getting paid to do what they do. I don't know what their postgame analysis looks like (if they have one), but I'm positive it could use some stern loving.
