Nip vs Astralis 16-8 ; 16-12
NiP isnt smart. Fnatic gonna beat G2 on semi-final and win 90k at least.
On the other hand Luminosity beat Astralis and rekt NiP's ass on semi final. They had to lose aganist Team Liquid.
If Astralis somehow beat LG, this tourney is NiP's probably.
Astralis pls it'd be easy for NiP
Gonna be fun see LG but i think astralis will upset them.
If LG don't throw to Optic
My heart will be divided :(
Top 5 :)
1. NIP - If NIP beats Luminosity on this 14th May
2. FNATIC - with fit Olofm
3. NAVI - with fit Gaurdian
1. NIP - if beats Lumi.
3. NAVI - unfit Guard.
5. Fnatic - with Wenton
2-0 luminosity - optic
2-1 nip - luminosity
2-1 g2 - fnatic
2-0 nip - g2
seen it here first
g2 you think upset? duuuude. 4 fnatic players ez rekt g2 full team. I think NiP vs LG - 2-1 and fnatic 2:0 going to finals
2:0 NiP will win esl finals
The winner of this match probably is gonna win the whole thing
ofc. NiP vs LG - very strong match in this tournament. final ez. this game 100% who will champion
LG have problems vs tier 5 teams like optic. NiP take this ez
LG 2-0 / 2-1 :)
fallen > pyth
coldzera > get right
f0rest = fer
xizt > taco
fnx > friberg
ez nip, lg is playing like bots, fer suiceder, cold not even close to the perfomance at the major, fnx meh, fallen is the one who has to step up and carry, botaco as well
no. LG not beat NiP with full roster this year. lose 16-13 in katowice 2016 with pyth. and beat NiP with threat 16:5... pyth? ez nip
Sad that this match is not the final. I hope for a good game :] #GONINJAS
COME ON DELUSIONAL NIP KIDS 12 y/old
maps will be
2:0 for lg or 2-1 for nip
RIP LG, NiP atm is better. LG playing like bots
I think this is the biggest rivalry right now
First match of nip vs Lg when nip has pyth and its Bo3.
Lg lost to G2 and almost to optic.
nip winning top teams with 2-0 score all this time.
winner of this match should win this turnament.
Hard Match 4 two teams :) #GOLG
nip is love,nis is life <3
This should've been a bo5 grand final, sadly it's only bo3 semis
Wow Grand Final come so early
at Katowice, NiP was new with pyth and threat (2 weeks practice)
at Columbus, NiP playing with a stand-in
With pyth is on fire lately, this game is gonna be awesome.
What a matchup (I hope) this will be. Rooting for NiP, but I got LG here.
Go LG! Gotta believe even with lg playing like shit in this tournament
If f0rest and GeT_RiGhT are playing good = win
If not = lose
It is really exciting to see nip playing so good again and coming back to there old form or even better with THREAT. I even totally agreed with get_right's answer of the overall question of which cs version was the best and of course he said cs:go. 1.6 was for sure my favourite cs version back then and i even played a lot of 1.5 and freaking enjoyed it and still do today. But CSGO is much more exciting to watch now and the main pro players, coaches and even the casters made the game much better! :)
My heart goes for nip in this match and it is so cool to follow the young player Pyth and how he is slowly improving and getting really good at his entry's and amazing support awp as well. But overall this match is gonna be a good match win or lose for nip. Love both teams in this current time the are the best. Confirmed by HLTV <3
Did i forget to mention anything else?
EZ FOR ENCE
The winner of this is going on to win the whole tournament.
gtr needs to step up in order fior nip to win
yep. nip now playing more DM and prepare to semis
We can do it Brothers!
LETS GO BRAZIL!
We smart, we loyal, we friendly, we are from BRAZIL! <3
hoping NiP win this. I want to see them win another tournament
NIP veto Inferno
LG veto Cache
NIP pick Dust2
LG pick Mirage
NIP veto Overpass
LG veto Cobllestone
looooool, nip new 87-0 ? i are think that
LG should take this 2-1 unless nip have some strong magic
fallen top1 awp world
fallen top1 igl world
ez double awp setup > no awp
nip is on fire
i think nip win 2-1
My brain and heart tell me, NIP is going to win this whole thing.
the odds are way 2good lol
NiP should win based on form. if LG read the plays correctly, they could stomp NiP. LG are a strong team, regardless of the shit they cop, due to slumdog favela fans.
B03 every map OT and I will be happy, regardless of who wins. GGWPLads.
heart says NiP 2-0
Brain says NiP 2-1
reality says LG 2-0
The odds are unfortunately against LG in this tournament. I'll have to go 2-1 to NiP.
NiP's form is currently insane but so is LG's. However LG has lately only played versus tier 2/3 teams and haven't actually pulled off any convincing performances during this tournament.
Both teams however have insane individual skill, but I do believe NiP's strats outbeats LG's for now.
Ez for Sepultura & Max Cavalera
dat odds on hltv rofl,NiP lucky
considering the current performance of the teams I believe the nip will take this but in a crazy game.
Mirage 22-19 LG
Dust 2 16-14 NIP
Overpass 16-13 LG
Very very hard game, but ez LG xD
ez for LG, 2-1 -> 16-9 13-16 16-12
I would say that whoever wins this match will win the whole tournament... good luck
Ppl still think that LG have a chance LUL
LG's form isnt good atm, so NIP might take it 2-1 imo sadly :/
Will be a close match, but NiP is pretty much unbeatable nowadays. 2:1 win for NiP.
EZ 4 LG
But TOO EZ 4 NINJAS
EZ 4 NIP for sure
Because LG is in bad mood :)
so ez 4 ninjas no chance 4 favela
This is gonna be 1 day from now, by that time LG would've already shaken off that rust from their past games. NiP on the other hand has been looking pretty good lately but with that slow start they had with Liquid, it might pose a problem if LG starts off the game wildly (Can't really take into consideration their match with fnatic since fnatic is really on a slump this season without olof). LG is gonna ban cache for sure and maybe train. NiP is gonna ban Overpass and Mirage. If Fallen reads NiP right this will be a very close match and will end in a 2-1 in favor of LG.
ez 4 LG rofl, thanks for the odds btw
Nip ban overpass
LG ban cache
Nip pick dust2
LG pick Mirage
Nip ban inferno
LG ban cbble
From the alternative pattern, it's NiP turn to win. NiP got this 2-1.
Nip is not playing very well in this tournament. And I am not talking about the match against liquid only; the match-up against fnatic was wobbly too imo and Nip missed a few crucial manoeuvres. It was the team playing worser of the two who lost in the end, not because Nip was playing very well.
Lg too seems to be missing their tricks at important moments. It took them a few moments to realize that G2 is not another NA team who would be crushed easily under simple strats. By the time LG tried to make amends, things had already gone out of hand. The match against Astralis was also almost the same as Nip vs fnatic. Both teams were not their best and LG eked out as the better team.
Fnatic@olof is absent
NaVi is absent
Astralis too is now gone
Handicapped fnatic and the team with shitzz are the only others remaining
This matchup right here might just be the final of the entire tournament.
Both teams would have to bring their A games. While I expect/support Nip to win this, its been too long since I have seen a good CS match since fnatic is off-color, and I hope this match to fill that void.
Good luck to both teams; May the best team win. Hopefully this is a match to remember.
Time for LG to get de_stroyed :D
Whoever win this game, will win the whole thing.
LG got this... nip not even top3 when teams veto cache
dust 2(55% NiP and 45% LG) Mirage (60-40 favourite LG) (Train 50-50) random
Whoever wins this match probably wins the whole tournament
nip 100% unless cheatzera activate
NIP cheating too and win ez
winner of this match wins the whole kebab
the lack of a dedicated awper might show for nip now but it will be nice an exiting matchup!
nip vs g2 in the final, g2 won 2-1 [16-12] [19-15] [16-5]
Sorry but this is true!
I wish this was the grand final!!
GL both teams!
omg wtf these odds 3.76 LG really ? hahaha EZ FOR FAVELAS
Still no odds posted wtf
LG will probably be a slight underdog and win 16-5 16-10
Why no matches today ESL? Why grand final on Sunday?
All hype is gone. Should at least had the map veto today so teams could have a full day to prepare strats/anti-strats.
I don't bet, but those csgofast odds are ridiculous lfmao.
Luminosity underdog, what the hell
1-Nip removed Inferno
2-Luminosity removed Cache
3-Nip picked D2
4-Luminosity picked Overpass
5-Nip removed Mirage
6-Luminosity removed Cobblestone
Nip won 2-1 (Train and d2 - Overpass)
LG fans vs Nip fans
that's real magic
Imagine NiP lost and Brazilian take over HLTV again
I think maps(Dust 2 - 1rd map for NIP 55 or 60% win this) (Overpass 60-40 for LG) and train(50-50 probably not 60-40 for LG)
people say will best match of the year and verry close
inb4 2-0 16-5 16-4 lg
xD. strong game vs tier 5 optic 16-12 16-13 close. and 16-5 16-4 lg? :DDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD
cant wait for this, go f0rest<3
check head to head matches. next win NiP
LG easy, they are bad but NiP is worse overrated, and NiP will make a stupid map choice as always
1. NiP removed Inferno
2. LG removed Cache
3. NiP picked Dust2
4. LG picked Mirage
5. NiP removed Overpass
6. LG removed Cobblestone
ez ez NiP, no chance for favelas, RiP in pepperonis favelas :/
cache - nip`s best
train - second nip`s best
lmao who will watch this, ENCE vs GODSENT is at same time, u need to reschedule it ;/
I hope that NiP,because I wait for their returning to top for 1 year
two best teams of this moment when i write this message
I believe #LGLOYAL!
Let's GO BRAZIL!!!
cheering for LG ofc, but my logical thoughts take me to believe it is a NIP 's game. GL both, hope LG do better than latest matches...
This will be really tough game.
Hope that LG will take this game despite fact that NiP is ridiciulously strong right now.
NiP is a joke 4Head EleGiggle
isnt it amazing how cs 1.6 died years ago and still star 1.6 players are on top in csgo, here gtr forest xizt fallen fnx
That's gonna be awesome game
This should've been the finals. But NiP will take it and win the tournament
Gon' be good, think NIP will edge it.
It seems people are taking groupstage results wayyy 2 serious. Great teams normally go off after the groupstage, and despite LG poor performances vs G2 and Optic, its still LG. 2 days after those bad games AND in semis. For everyone thinking NiP are favourites here, ur retarded. They can win no doubt, but being favourites? loool.
1. NiP removed Dust2
2. LG removed Mirage
3. NiP picked Inferno
4. LG picked Cache
5. NiP removed Train
6. LG removed Overpass
I don't see NiP winning this even if i love them and also hate LG. But we have to face it GTR is under performing Xizt also and f0rest isn't in beast mode so let's see but since the start of the tournament they didn't showed great plays same for LG might go either way imo
nip will take the "D" 2-0 cu tomorow gay nip kids
All my money on LG, LG better than NIP IMO
This game will be with crowd yeah?
odds be juicy for my max bet lg
I want LG to win but easy Ninjas in Pyjamas from Sweden.
Ninajs in jebane will rek favelas in favela
Probably if both teams are on their good day, this will be the best game of the year, maybe better than LG x Na'vi
GL for both teams, Forest and GTR 1.6 legends vs coldzera and FalleN best players of 2016, unpredictable match
For me the maps were Mirage, Dust2 and Train
Mirage - 70/30 LG
Dust2 - 70/30 NiP
Train - If it was before the tournament would say 60/40 for LG, but because LG have played badly this map, I put 50/50 or maybe 55/45 for NiP
NiP recent form better, LG better firepower
NiP are THE best team at the moment, and no1 can match them at all. I think LG will lose 2-0
I think this is going to be the greatest match of the year so far. I am so hyped!
I don't dare betting. But I'm out of skins anyways =D.
If LG lose I will go out of hltv
400 comments and the game didnt started yet, holy shit 2000 comments inc
i think if both teams play their best level, nip will win 2-1
This is final of thid tournament. no chances for g2/fnatoxic in bo5.
Lets Go LUMINOSITY <3 !!!
2-0 for lg or 2-0 for nip
I think 2-0 or 2-1 for nip coz LG dont care this tournament very much.
Nip will let LG ban first
LG ban cache
Nip ban inferno
LG pick mirage/overpass
Nip pick dust2/cobble
LG ban cobble/dust2
Nip ban train/overpass
Lets reach 750 comments before match begins.

NiP has to win this otherwise HLTV will be full of Brazilians OMFG

FAVELAS ARE BEST WITH AK'S THEY USE IT TO KILL THE POLICE IZI FAVELAS
NiP 2x0 (16/10, 16/14)
GeT_RiGhT = 65 bombs
f0rest = 60 bombs
ez LG LETS GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
IS THIS LAN? BTW nip will rape LG so hard
I am gonna be honest with you guys: because LG's permanent ban is Cache, which is also best NIP's map right now - I am afraid that Ninjas has a huge map pool disadvantage.
LG's map pool is so good, what even NiP going to pick? Dust 2? Not that confident map for them as well, and LG were practicing it recently, though they lost to Astralis on it anyway. And what else?
Mirage? Probably most fearsome map to play against LG, their CT side is flawless, nobody broke their middle control double AWP set up yet.
Overpass? Probably second best map for LG, shaky map for NIP, they going to veto it most likely.
Inferno? Another strong map for LG, though Optic pushed them well on it. NIP has some decent results there, but they are not playing it too often and not really picking it in any matches.
Train and Cobble, probably two best maps to beat LG on, mostly because they showing some weaknesses there, like that really poor T side on Train against G2 two days ago, and what is more important - NIP showing good results on those recently. So, if NiP can get those maps, or win Dust 2 against LG, and their Magic along with Thread Magic is here today - they have a good chance of winning this semi-finals, but otherwise I don't really see LG losing unless they are in a "Throw-mood", which should not be the case at semi-finals point.
wtf I've never seen nip play cbble
rip my skins???
NiP didn't ban Overpass, maybe they prepared some "Surprises" on it for LG, but still, they need some insane amount of NiP magic there in order to take it from Luminosity.
YES!!!!! FINALLY A DUST2 game in pro matches!
I'm so excited! Hate the fact that most teams would always ban Dust2!
HERE WE GO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! LG!!!!!!!!!
How they managed to choose these awful casters for this great match? Fuck this shit seriously.
16:9 overpass luminosity
16-12 dust2 nip
16-7 cobblestone luminosity
ALMOST feels bad to take skins from poor favelas.. But what the heck.. eheheheh
GO NIP !
Trash this poorfavella monkeys
should be good and close match, but those maps are better for lg
How's the crowd supposed to watch the game?
ofc fallen with the perfect pistol read xDDD
lg already cheating from 1st round today
ez win 4 NIP
go go go Ninjas
VACO LOL VAC BAN THIS BLANT CHEATER
Why didn't nip pick Cache?
fnatic cheat shit , replaced by luminosity cheat shit
VOLVO WAKE UP
what was nip planing to do wtf?
lol nip always plays 1 map off
lg looking strong right here
wanna hear a joke?
where are the NiP fanboys at?
as easy as expected
Can NiP stop being such pussies? always letting GT going in first site and the others are waiting.. How should he be able to check every corner alone? xDD
lol pansy is casting the semi final. fuck esl. other guy sucks too.
EleGiggle NIP top1 they said EleGiggle
w/e threat planned isn't working. disappointed.
TACO did something holy shit
Why do NiP play overpass? They should ban it 100%, they can play every map except inferno+overpass :/
Just wait for NiP's magic.
lg most agressive i have ever seen
13th round - NiP still taken by surprise by LG's aggressive play. XD dafuq...
Comeback from 14-2
Do it again or KYS
gosh, what a complete joke. What the fuck NiP?
LG T side is not that strong on overpass. But they only need 3 rounds.
You cant pick t side against lg 4Head
I wish NiP wouldn't display their disgusting tobacco addiction on camera.
call the cops, because we're having a rape here
nip is getting destroyed, and i think they subestimated LG on d2, they are not that bad, just because they lost against Astralis that doesnt mean u can win against them, :p
50/50 on CSGL LOL, Nip overrated
LG have every timing in almost every round, NiP had one round where f0rest had the timing on his side, otherwise NiP have always been caught with a nade in the hand or looking the other way etc...
This is another level teams :) easy cash for normal guys.
nice casting "jesus christ can you hit a shot friberg"
i fucking hate this botberg, anchor of NiP for 2 years almost
friberg on his worst day ;v
pff playing like shit. LG is raping them in the ass atm.
hahah, how LG evade this ambush, epic.
This is tier 2 vs tier 5 CS, haha
nice decision to start on T-side
Overpass too strong for LG.
Banning inferno was a bad call after all.
Thank the camera for showing us GTR's growing double chin
That's the lg I was expecting on groups
np NiP u can do this on dust 2! LG dont know how to play this map vs tier 1 team <3 I love u and believe in u!
can not really criticize the nip , vain do that against the best team in the world ?
NiP can\will win Dust2.
cobble will gonna be a great match :D
friberg, forest, getright and pyth combined 1 entry frag! atleast xizt got 3..
LG won the event if they beat nip
angry "LG cheat" threads incoming xd
FNX is just beasting right now.
I aren't think that
"everyone in NiP has a injury, Lucky LG AS ALWAYS" hahahaha
dust2, well see ;-)
It was EXPECTED that LG SHOULD win over NiP on Overpass since they are BEST TEAM in the world on Overpass.
That was not a surprise here.
What would be a surprise is if LG beating NiP on Dust2.
Hopefully better performance is shown in Dust 2
pretty smart to play overpass ahahaha xD xD xD ez skinz
someone said that Nip is back. they just lost to favela
Fnatic will revenge NIP in the final
LG top 1
NiP top 4/5
fallen & fnx legends 1.6 <3
wtf both nr 1 seeds play against each other in the semis?
just bet 3k @3.4 nip to win match.
We can do it BRAZIL!
The NiP fans don't deserve it!
but against my country, my PROUD, sorry NiP Fans, lot of respect to u!
We smart, we loyal, we friendly, we are from BRAZIL!
LG holding BombA on Dust2 is the worst hold of CS, they always stand in catwalk and long. Too trash
NIP should win at least dust2. Even Astralis won on dust2 against LG.
NiP showing LG how to win a CSGO-match on a REAL CLASSICAL map and not a map for pussies!
Luminosity didn't get enough of dd2 when they got 16-0'd?
when will they learn ;>
fucking twitch.. SERIOUSLY?
to imagine that both of these teams have been 16-0'd by fnatic on this map (NiP not with pyth & THREAT tho)
Doesn't this map look more like Favela than Overpass? Why so bad at it
LG are sooo bad at real maps like Dust2 wtf.
Nowonder why they just specialize at niche maps like Olofpass.
wtf w/ scorebot ayyyyyy HLTV?
All brasilian monkeys must die )
Ninjas ,ninjas,Ninjas in Pyjamas!!!
idk why but i think lg will win d2 on OT/16-14
LG struggling even with their damn hacks. Always getting the timing lol.
no.of mistakes gtr makes is unreal
lol nip lose 5v4 and 5v3 so shit
lmao lg with the "luck" starting, getting all the 50/50 duels
im not sure if 10 5 is enough for nip.
hhahaha LG are so obvious
double 5v3 in a row...
gg nip 2-0 lg
just 3 free rounds
lol kids still think NiP has skill and LG only has Luck xD
Gotta love the ”timing” when LG struggle.
wwwwwwwwwwwwow XIZT WOWWWWWWWWWWWWW WOW
OMMMMMMMMMMGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG BEEEEEEEEESSSSST PISTOL I HAVE EVER SEEEEEEEEEEEEEN OMMMMMMMMMGGGGGGGGGGG
XZIST!!!! GOOOD!!!!!! OOMG THAT WAS THE PLAY OF THE YEAR!!!!!
holy fuck xizt you monster
Unbelievable clutch Xizt.
XIZT TOO STRONK FOR FAVELAS
Okay Xizt, this map is on the bag.
