June 30th, 2013 20:34

Virtus.pro has completed a three map comeback win versus NiP with scorelines of 11-16 on de_mirage_ce, 16-11 on de_dust2_se and 16-14 on de_nuke_se to advance to the RC EMS One grand final.

NiP started de_mirage_ce well as Richard "Xizt" Landström and Patrik "f0rest" Lindberg combined for four kills, allowing NiP to go up 3-0. Emil "kucher" Akhundov's connector flank gave Virtus the fourth round, but Robin "Fifflaren" Johansson's three kills quickly gave NiP the control back.

Virtus looked poised to win the seventh round after a save, but Lindberg's one-on-two heroics forced the CIS-based squad to save once more, making it 7-1. NiP lost the next two rounds, but managed to save two guns through both rounds.

Kirill "ANGE1" Karasiow was unable to convert a one-on-three, and a two-on-three loss by him and Ladislav "GuardiaN" Kovács forced them to save. After a quick slaughter in middle, NiP found themselves up 10-3.

NiP's defense was then wiped away in the A site with Adam "friberg" Friberg scoring three exit kills, but the Swedes had no issues winning the final round of the half for a 11-4 lead.


f0rest was too strong for Virtus on de_mirage_ce 

Virtus picked up an easy pistol round win as counter-terrorists, but lost a save round with Friberg picking up three AWP kills on the third round. NiP won the next round as well, but Virtus didn't give up, winning a weak forcebuy to cut the score to 7-13.

NiP wound up losing two more rounds including a save round, but then attacked the B bombsite and were able to win their fourteenth round. At 9-13 Sergey "Fox" Stolyarov and Kovács won a two-on-three in the A site, keeping VP alive.

Lindberg then led an NiP rush into the A site and scored three entry kills, giving his team map point. Another Stolyarov Kovács clutch kept their team alive slightly longer, but another three kill round from Lindberg made it 16-11.

Virtus went for a super aggressive pistol round as counter-terrorists on de_dust2_se with Kovács quickly in the terrorist spawn on the flank, and were able to take out NiP for a rare defensive side pistol round.

Alesund's three AK47 kills opened up the third round, while Lindberg finished the final two opponents with sub-10hp. A mid-to-B split from NiP then gave the Swedes another round, and forced VP to save.


Virtus kept fighting despite early deficits

NiP lost the next round, but Johansson's three kills on the round after followed up by another triple from Alesund quickly made it 6-3 for NiP, and forced the underdogs on yet another save round.

The Swedes then won another round attacking long A, and Virtus's save made it 3-9 despite Kovács' four exit kills. The Slovak was heating up though, and after VP won a round, he picked up three AWP kills to make it 5-9.

Final round of the half went to NiP on a simple catwalk hit, but Mihail "Dosia" Stolyarov's three pistol round kills kept his team in the game. NiP's usual third round buy didn't pay off, and they found themselves up only 10-9 after a save.

Fifth round of the half came down to Kovács in a one-on-three, and he completed one of the most amazing clutches in CS:GO's history, quick scoping three NiP players on top of the A site.

Perhaps overjoyed, Virtus made some mistakes on the next round and NiP were able to win a save. Despite looking down, Stolyarov's triple kill gave VP back momentum and money control.


GeT_RiGhT showed similar form to his yesterday's dust2 terrorist side play 

Another three kill round from Stolyarov quickly made it 14-11, and NiP's money issues for them to save. At map point, Virtus attacked catwalk to win their sixteenth round of the map, tying the series 1-1.

Virtus started off de_nuke_se with a quick outside split that took them from lower back to upper, and completely confused NiP who were not able to recover, and went down 0-3 to start the deciding map.

Another quick strategy from VP extended their lead to 5-0. Landström's three kills in upper gave NiP life, and they easily took down their opponents on the next two rounds, cutting the deficit to 3-5.

Kovács played the hero once again on round nine, and his one-on-one clutch versus Johansson made it 6-3. NiP continued buying, but were wiped on the upper site by a well executed attack for a 3-7 scoreline.


GuardiaN was undoubtedly Virtus.pro's hero in this series 

The Swedes refused to save, and looked to be on their way back into the game just as Kovács and Sergey "Fox" Stolyarov completed an incredible two-on-five win, forcing NiP to save for a commanding 9-3 lead.

Friberg's two M4A4 kills started a late NiP comeback, and their aggressive play shut down Virtus' attacks all across the map, as they all of a sudden found themselves trailing just 6-9 at half time.

Emil "HeatoN" Christensen's troops tied the game by winning the terrorist side pistol round and the two consecutive save rounds by Virtus, but two round wins on the lower bombsite forced the Swedes to save and made it 12-9 for Virtus.

NiP's attacks kept getting picked apart all across the map, but sitting in their spawn on the following save round seemed to ignore some ideas a they won the next round, making it 10-14.


Virtus.pro celebrating their third NiP win 

Virtus then went for a clever outside setup with Karasiow pushed up aggressively under the white silo, and entry kills from him and Kovács allowed Virtus.pro to gain match point at 15-10.

Lindberg's two running AK47 headshots outside kept NiP in the game and gave them some hope. The Swedes then took over the upper bombsite next round, and the final two Virtus members chose to save their weapons in a two-on-two.

NiP were then close to losing the anti-eco round, but Friberg and Johansson came through in a two-on-four situation, making it 13-15. The second to last round was then a lot more anti-climatic, as NiP ran over the Russians' defense at ramp and made it 14-15.

Now on a weak buy with just four FAMASes to try to clinch the series, the game looked to be going into overtime before Karasiow and Stolyarov scored kills in the lower site, and with Johansson unable to convert a one-on-four situation into a win, Virtus won the map 16-14 and the series 2-1.

It kinda is, CoD have 38,408 viewers right now (+some restreams) and CoD isn't that big out of the states.
2013-06-30 21:00
But the states is bigger than europe
2013-06-30 21:12
yes, but even tho their isn't many tournaments in the states, CS is still really popular over their.

2013-06-30 20:43
True that. Awesome to see Virtus back on the very top. The team is pretty much as legendary in CS as NiP is.
2013-06-30 20:49
they were never on the very top.
2013-06-30 20:51
Not the best but on the very top, yes they were. 2006 VP line was incredible

2013-06-30 20:52
Most of the people here aren't VP fans. Some are just glad to see something new (not yet another NiP tournament), some glad for their countrymen (like Russians, Ukrainians or Slovaks for Guardian) or neighbours (like me) and some are just NiP haters (plenty of VP haters, too though).
2013-06-30 21:01
Compared to me you seem to like your neigbours a lot more than us swedes. We like to see our neigbours lose ALMOST everyone of us xD

Everyone in NiP played really unstable on nuke. But VP are insanely good as well. They did just play better, even though NiP played game of throws on dust2.

Again Virtus.pro crushed NIP on the lan! No matter how to win the final, most importantly for the "millions of fans" that the "GTR and Co" been put in place!!!!! infa 100%

GuardiaN won the game for VP. Even though I'm a NiP supporter VP deserved this win, they played consistent and smart. Although I feel NiP didn't reach up to their full potential as defenders on de_nuke, could have gone either way. A great, entertaining game!
2013-06-30 21:01
GuardiaN amazing awp at times, quickscope and reflexes, but sometimes misses simple shots, he has to work on it.

Lucky i did not see the match live, i would only get frustrated as all the teams i'm sheering for are out... :/ esc,fnatic and NiP all out.
2013-06-30 21:29
GTR went mad after loosing! bildr.no/view/dnVJdmpV haha, no, but that was an amazing semi, well played by both teams!

nip onliners...
2013-06-30 22:02
GuardiaN is best
2013-06-30 22:02
Wow, I was expecting NiP to win. Second time Virtus Pro beat NiP in LAN so it's a rivalry.
2013-06-30 22:31
I expected NiP to win so I left the stream after the first map. Fuck worst mistake of my life! I actually like seeing NiP get beaten sometimes just so they can improve!
2013-06-30 22:44
VP seem to have NiP's number, if only they wouldve ran away with the trophy... they did not give a good account of themselves in the actual final but it would appear we have found NiPs rival on LAN

GuardiaN 1v3 win with an AWP vs NiP nominated for the best 1v3 in the whole history of CS:GO so far :0 ---> youtube.com/watch?v=eb5v5UavcZs
2013-07-01 05:33
wow at GTR fail
2013-07-02 00:05
Only reason VP won was because NIP failed to shut out guardian like VG did in the final. If they'd taken his awp out of the game they'd of smashed them tbh. He closed off half the map on nuke and d2.
