NiP win Copenhagen Games 2013
NiP have won Copenhagen Games after yet another dominant performance, annihilating Western Wolves 16-2 in the grand final on de_train_se to win 16,500€.
NiP started off the grand final by winning the pistol round as counter-terrorists on de_train_se, with statistical leader Patrik "f0rest" Lindberg scoring two kills with his P2000.
Western Wolves managed to get a bomb plant and three kills on their save, but NiP quickly shut down their outer rush for a 3-0 score. After one more save the Danes finally got their first round thanks to Nicolaj "Nico" Jensen's three AWP kills, but it wouldn't last for long.
WW's outside fake was quickly shut down by NiP, and although Jensen saved his AWP, they weren't able to do much with it on the following round as Lindberg's M4A4 kills on the retake gave NiP another round, 1-6.
After another lost save round, Jensen and Lukas "gla1ve" Rossander were left in a two-on-four where they scored the first two kills, but Christopher "GeT_RiGhT" Alesund's SCAR picked up the round for his team.
Happy Ninjas on the podium
As their frustration started showing through, WW attempted another inner attack, but despite getting the bomb planted, were shut down. Alesund's SCAR cleaned up the next save round, and suddenly the score was 1-10.
Nichlas "Nille" Busk's crash cost Western Wolves a round as they sat looking confused in spawn, and after another inner bombsite retake NiP had extended their lead to a dominant 12-1.
The Danes finally got their second round on the second to last round with Robin "Fifflaren" Johansson missing a few shots on Rossander, but he made up for it by scoring two AWP kills on the final round to make it 13-2.
Second half pistol round saw NiP's super duo, Alesund and Lindberg, combined for four kills to win the pistol. From there on out it was smooth sailing for two more rounds, with both stars ending up at 20 kills total.
