VG seemed quite close recently.
VG (ScreaM is a beast and will improve their game, but they might have to change another player to be able to be equals with NiP and not just win a game here and there vs them)
VP (got the talent, need to step it up a bit tho)
ESC (gona be the biggest threat real soon imo)
NaVi (showed some good rounds today and will only improve with time)
Imo the scene is gona get alot tighter and more entertaining to watch in the coming 6 months!
Like after this game do you rly think that NiP will be beatable in at least in this year? Not saying next cuz it might be possible ( still 99% not possible to beat NiP even after this year )
VG,ESC,VP,Navi, or some1 surprise them :D
Plenty of teams will beat them very soon.
ESC, NaVi and VeryGames!!
fnatic now would have chance with MODDII and karrigan..
VG has a new member, they still have to get used to each other, they don't have that harmony yet what NiP has.
And don't forget about ESC/Na'Vi, they are getting better day by day.
ex mouz.uk will beat NiP if RattlesnK can get a solid core with a decent org. Untill then I think it will be either VG or ESC.
online maybe VG, but in few moths, at lan maybe ESC also in few moths
why not virtus.pro?? they better than navi,esc
ESC,next lan,u heard it here first
stupid question ;)
navi if they will focus :) but i hope in vp and vg also
Vg can easy
and remove ex6 or smitzz
ave zonic MJE Sunde trace
a year is a hell of a time in the gaming world. ofcourse they will be beaten on LAN at least once this year. it would be inhuman if they keep their track record without losses @ lan
My point of view.
Just wait for ESC to keep improving. VG have chance too if they get lucky, but they have lower potential.
VG, Na'Vi and ESC. VG and Na'Vi have already shown their capabilities in CS, they have shown they can beat everyone in the scene. ESC is improving match after match, they figuring out new tactics and new gamestyles, so I think they can be the new imperators in CSGO.
If VG can destroy them like that as CT with a player that has just joined them, that they do not have anywhere near the same kind of communication and team cohesion with him as they had with RpK who remember was a part of VG for over 3 years, then they have a great chance to beat them in a little more time.
"Just wait for ESC to keep improving" "VG add 1 player they will improve soon" "vp are improving" yeah, NiP will obviously stay with the same skill-level and teamplay they have atm, they wont improve aswell. Sight sauciez
I belive in ESC, VG, Virtus, Lemondogs(yes) and Na'vi.
-Na'vi// had some really good round yestarday against NiP, but they need to practice, ALOT.
-ESC// Are already impressing at times, they will be dangerous on LAN.
-Virtus// Have prooven that they can play with the big boys and i think they have good potential.
-Lemondogs// this may come as a suprise, but if you have watched some of their matches you know that there is sooo much potentioal and talent there!
We also have team like Fnatic and Mouseports who really need to get their shit together!, but could be a threat in a couple of months.
I feel that while VG consistently gets close to beating NiP, it'll be ESC that will finally dethrone them.
Sam "RattlesnK" Gawn
James "Mx" Smale
Preben "prb" Gammels�ter
Daniel "RE1EASE" Mullan
Brandon "weber" Weber
didnt we just have this same exact thread last week? Anyway, in that thread i said, a chinese team will be the first to beat them, on pure raw aiming.
who will beat them first - only exitement in the cs:go scene....
i hope navi suprise us all for..so that there is something to follow...
There are some new interesting teams in the mix.
NaVi is still improving
ESC same as NaVi
VG needs to replace Ex6 or Smithz for Shoxie. ScreaM has already shown what replacing one player can do, and RpK was their strongest player before ScreaM.
ex-Mousesports: RE1EASE, Rattlesnake, Mx, prb, weber are a ridiculously talented source team. Can't wait to see what they are capable of.
Torqued: steel, stingerr, hudzg, moddie and nooky. Lots of talent here.
Dynamnic: swag, nothing, azk, adren, volcano. They seem to have gotten their shit together and are stomping the competition in NA. They might have an outside shot at NiP now.
OMG! There are actually a Lot of teams who have the potential to beat NIP now! Like VG,Ex-Mouz,Dynamic,CUrse.NA,4Nothing,Even ESC with some more pracs! I think NIPs victory streak will end soon within 2-3 months! , Just a matter of time!
No offence, But I want to see NIP lose soon! Gl NIP! ^_^
Vg they just added scream. Think about it the longer they player the higher synergy they will gain. NIP has been together since the start of go.
Genuinely think that the new mouz team will be competing for top 3 finishes with vg and nip. But NIP still look relatively uncontested at the top.
i laugh at those ESC VP Navi predictions.
If somebody has higher chance to beat nip its VG not anybody else.
How could you even rate ESC NAVI VP ? If those teams will face VG they will just get raped.
Right now its NIP who on top of the hill. And VG are next team under em. Not navi not esc and no vp.
well i agree with DannyL the new team of rattlesnk seems to be very strong RE1EASE was a very strong player in source. But nip isnt unbeatable there was a team that defeated them (WRTT) if im not mistaked, but there was a probability of hacking .
4Nothing if they will attend a LAN outside US. VG when they finally realize that force buying against NiP is like giving them two rounds. And maybe the ex-mouz team if they will give a shit about practice
VG(ScreaM) or VP(Dosia)
their aim one of the best in game
someone on Copenhagen Games
As we saw the close game between VG and NiP yesterday and how na'vi played well against NiP in de_train even tho they lost
i think the teams who are going to beat nip soon are
Few teams can like :
VG are the closest right now, but ESC or Na'VI at their full discipline, provided they get well into this game (i mean Na'Vi since ESC already improved). Anyways, it will take some time until NiP is finally beaten.
real life will beats them ;)
when they'll be arround 30 yo without any shit diploma they'll clean our WC to survive.
Any team can beat NiP on only one match, but the real question is which team can actually surpass them.
the 1 team will be VG or ESC i think maybe VP have chances but i think esc and VG are muchs stronger when it goes to lan turnaments
if anybody can beat NiP, it will be Navi after some time if they keep training like they're now.
VG has the biggest chances to beat them now with scream they will destroy NIP
VP has good chances to do that
ESC need some more practice
NaVi is to far away to do that
Acept it, the power of NiP is impressive. His game is extremely adaptive to each opponent and works great. They are the best. The only chance for the rest of the equipment is catch them on a bad day, or if Ninjas in Pyjamas are tired of winning.
i think 100% is VeryGames very good player and talented :))
esc navi (after another 500 hours practise)
but there is a small problem for them
IGL is XIZT, not carn or robban who shitted in the pants in finals vs esc or navi
I think its gonna be VG, but i hope they wont, they've had their time of dominance in CSS, so i hope that ESC will prove very strong on a LAN soon :) But the longer the streak last, the better :)
Shoxie in for KennyS and VG will beat them. Smithzz takes over the awp role like in CSS.
KennyS is useless without an awp. Just watch that NiP match, he had nothing to offer on T side without an awp
ESC ICY BOX :) , they need a bit more practice and they will beat them
I'm sure it will be ESC or Virtus.pro
Who will beat NiP? eoLithic of course!
even with ScreaM I don't think VG can take down NiP. I think it's more likely that NiP will have a bad day and lose to a team that isn't really expected to have a chance against them. As far as the teams that are expected to compete with NiP, I think Na'Vi has the best chance.
ESC ESC :))))) maybe VG first but for few months ESC will be stronger than VG
