NiP win FACEIT Cup over VeryGames

September 10th, 2013 16:22

Ninjas in Pyjamas came from behind to beat VeryGames 2-1 and win FACE ITs August Cup.

It was a keenly-contested monthly tournament, the one that FACEIT organised on Monday, with the competition having some very interesting games as early as in the first round.

Still, all the four invites teams managed to make it to the semi-finals, where NiP eased past fnatic 2-0 and VeryGames breezed through Astana Dragons, also with the same scoreline.

In this classic CS:GO final, VG came out very strongly, winning de_dust2_se 16-13, but then NiP responded in convincing fashion and beat the French side on the other two maps (16-14 on de_mirage_ce and 16-12 on de_inferno_se).

2013-09-10 21:09
NIP only won because shoxie lagged.
2013-09-10 16:35
2013-09-10 16:36
hes right actualy
2013-09-10 16:57
He didnt lag that much, thats just an excuse. What about the other 19matches VG has lost? "NBK had to poop rly bad"
2013-09-10 17:00
did you tards even watch the game? almost every round that shox didn't lag they won. hence the 16 - 12 score. in regards to the 19 matches VG has lost against NIP. lol good logic buddy... everyone knows all the other teams have been catching NIP it's just a matter of time. either way i'm really looking forward to DH B
2013-09-10 17:05
NiP had the same issues on D2 but no1 complained bout that lol
2013-09-10 17:06
nothing you could compare man, shoxie wasnt even playing on some round, that was not just some "random lags". without that they could have won inferno and even mirage as it started on it. not an excuse as I think nip still would have won that bo3.
2013-09-10 18:01
I thought you knew me well enough after all our argues to realize that im constantly trolling, lol
2013-09-10 18:03
fanboys everywhere, vg will never beat nip in bo3, deal with it
2013-09-10 17:06
Denmark kaspeRztw 
yep fanboys <3 NiP You made is so much clear for me that you cant even hold yourself objectively in a discussing about NiP
2013-09-10 17:12
oh god .. The thing is that You are even bigger fanboy.
2013-09-10 18:11
oh yea? how are you dealing with their last 2 bo3s?
2013-10-17 02:02
2013-10-17 02:08
No one is catching NiP, they are just making slightly more mistakes.

2013-09-10 17:54
isnt this the old story that every team is catching up nip, it was all started may be 8 months ago but still ppl saying everybody catching up nip and u ll be saying this prolly after couple of years too
2013-09-10 19:06
to be fair, that really had an impact, he lagged badly when NiP got its first crucial weapon round in the second side. I'm not saying this would have completely changed the match, but it definitely had an impact, and nip players know that. Regardless of the result, just for the show and for the sake of knowing that both teams brought their best, it's unfortunate.
2013-09-10 17:08
Denmark kaspeRztw 
There will always be excuses. But that was VG's match and they would have won. "NBK had to poop rly bad" plz stop being pathetic. So it took them 19 matches to get better at playing vs nip ? And how can lagging be an excuse ? 250 in ping is not playable.
2013-09-10 17:07
adren from AD is a perfect example of a guy that can play with a brutally high ping and still performing
2013-09-10 17:10
Denmark kaspeRztw 
Yeah he actually is. I've always seen him with a 70-90 ping which funny enough is steady. But playing with a ping which is jumping from a normal ping to 250 in milliseconds is the same ?
2013-09-10 17:15

2013-09-10 18:29
Did you even watched the game? AdreN never lagged regardless of his Ping. shox was more like Teleporting, his flashes would be on the wrong places and so on.
2013-09-10 17:14
Doesn't the lag affect nip as well? Would he be harder to hit or something?
2013-09-10 17:53
There's a huge difference between ping from distance from server and ping from just losing packets and dying internet etc
2013-09-10 17:21
United Kingdom Alth 
+1 I have played on 200 ping on esea US servers before and while definitely not ideal, it is "okay". I have also attempted to play with packet loss before and it is beyond fucking ridiculous. Warping around walls, seeing the enemy seconds after they actually peaked, it's a nightmare.
2013-09-10 17:23
hahaha youre officially an idiot :D adren played with at most 100 lag which is really annoying but still u can help your team. 200+ lag = no way u can do something. i didnt watch the match nor do i care who wins but saying someone can perform with 200 ping is stupid
2013-09-10 19:04
that kind of lag is not compareable, adrens lag only affects in the way of delay, however, with shoxies lag u can barely move or switch a weopon
2013-09-10 19:24
United Kingdom Alth 
He.... didn't.... lag.... that.... much..... Did you even watch the game ROFL. His POV was literally like a slide show, he had upwards of 300 ping and was constantly prevented from even moving let alone aiming at somebodies head due to the lag he was experiencing. I'm sure you are very proud of NiP scraping a win 4v5 on inferno.
2013-09-10 17:22
He didn't lag much? .. you didn't watch the game did you.
2013-09-10 17:55
hahahahaha own'd
2013-09-10 18:34
he is right

So, it was more or less Get_Right vs ScreaM I it seems.

VG unlucky =(
2013-09-10 16:43
ScreaM > GT > f0rp
2013-09-10 16:45
Problem for ScreaM is he aint as consistent as GTR. So GTR wins :D His aim is n1 in the world though!
2013-09-10 17:40
Lets see ScreaM pulling more than 50 frags in a bo3 vs NiP @dreamhack ;>
2013-09-10 18:26
So now he's an onliner?
2013-09-10 18:29
Nop he absolutelly is not an onliner, but beside having the night of his life yesterday, he often chokes with pressure/nerves. Lan enviroment is much different than playing on the confort of your house homie ;)
2013-09-10 18:30
"Lan enviroment is much different than playing on the confort of your house homie" What's the problem in that? If he has proven himself lan several times - which he has - why should people bash him when he plays online at his home - more calm etc - as you said?
2013-09-10 18:34
Problem in that? Thats a fact where did i stated that there was a problem with that? Lets get real: ScreaM did the performance of his life, carrying VG on his back completely alone, and they still lost. Do you honestly think ScreaM will put up a similiar performance in a bo3 vs NiP on lan? Not saying he will perform badly, but THAT good?
2013-09-10 18:38
He is capable of performing that good - of course - and ScreaM has carried VG million other times. But since they went 2 maps - he had that much frags - let's see they win 1 round against NiP on lan - then discuss the frags after.
2013-09-10 18:44
He is not capable of performing like he did yesterday on lan and dreamhack will prove you wrong, I dont really need to say anything else. And no, ScreaM did not carried VG a million times on lan, and thats the reason people and myself consider shox and NBK way better players than scream.
2013-09-10 18:48
actually scream doesnt carry VG almost anytime XD
2013-09-11 14:14
'and they still lost' --> doesnt really matter. i agree that scream wont perform as good as he did in this bo3 but theres a high chance that shoxie and nbk will play a lot better (yes, also forest will perform better). just wanted to say that this part is unnecessary :P btw i dont care who wins so im probably not biased
2013-09-10 19:12
Im swedish and i dont care aswell, just care for a good show :) Agree, shoxie and nbk normally step up on lan specially NBK, same as f0rest. Theres really no way to know what will happen, but im betting on a NiP win on lan without any doubt>!
2013-09-10 21:24
performing good and performing excellent on lan is like day and night. nbk is usually the guy who carries them on lans. and its a fact that u feel more pressure on lan than in some online tournament and if u cant get rid of that pressure youre gonna perform worse
2013-09-10 19:08
My point exactly
2013-09-10 19:11
LOVE scream and get_right :D
2013-09-10 16:47
ScreaM was on fire yesterday Dauuwmnnn boy!!! 71 % hs and 1,57 rateing, and gtr as usual a baws, i can kinda understands shox bad stats bcuz of the internet problems he had towards the end, but SmithZz did not have a good day.... well well fun games hope these to giants clash in dh or any other tournament for that matter always close games :).
2013-09-10 16:48
im 100% sure that vg will suck at lan. Nip didnt show any tactic but vg gave everything they had.Nip was playing with the same tactic each round.Vg players were on fire but that nip will destroy everyone at lan so do astana dragons. You cant tie with navi when u destroy the best team in the world something wrong here baby. Lan>Online And im an astana dragons fanboy
2013-09-10 16:52
wait for DH Bucharest and lol'd at 'vg gave everything they had'.
2013-09-10 17:01

candidate for post of the day
2013-09-11 11:52
Literally none of your comment made sense lmao, both teams were 100% definitely saving strats for lan, no doubt about it the game at DH will be way different (not saying VG will win because honestly i don't know either way) but yea it will not be the same.
2013-09-10 17:24
So which part doesnt make sense ? Vg didnt save any strats to be honest if you analyze the game.
2013-09-10 18:26
and how do you know which strats are old ones and which ones are made for the next lan? you dont.
2013-09-11 02:41
You could listen at the commentator -.- nip on mirage was just making an a split but vg was going everywhere in a different way each round!
2013-09-11 07:41
So you're not allowed to improvise as a tactician?
2013-09-11 11:53
Right now ofc no Both teams are heading to dreamhack if they perform any kind of tactic each team will study the demo -.-
2013-09-11 14:21
... -.-
2013-09-11 18:43
Are you totally retarded that does not mean they were using any new strats which were made SOLELY for Dreamhack
2013-09-11 17:03
Seriously u fucking kidding me ? i am the retarded one ? VG has never won a map against nip and suddednly in the last match they played like gods ? they were 100% better than nip in that match and you wanna tell me all this succes was just from a free play ? da fuq is wrong with ur brain-.-
2013-09-11 17:50
2013-09-11 18:01
I dont think they will "suck" on lan, but im pretty sure some players will not perform as beastly as they did, which will make VG a less strong team.
2013-09-10 18:40
this is what im talking about. Vg tied a match with navi ? and dominated astana dragons ? Im pretty sure they will get rolled at lan from the dragons and the nip.Both strong lan teams!
2013-09-10 19:22
pretty sure you're wrong here, VG is quite better on LAN than online.
2013-09-11 12:53
We will see about that.
2013-09-11 13:46
Good job NIP. Hard work pays off.
2013-09-10 16:50

2013-09-10 17:02
How many times has NiP beat VG in a row now, 7-8 ? Most be beyond frustrating. :D
2013-09-10 17:05
7-8 times LAN only (with online results, something like 12-13 4sure), but again - no one won against NiP in bo3 @ LAN except VP. VG improving.
2013-09-10 17:08
lol weird stats, carry only ScreaM & gtr
2013-09-10 17:16
Agreed, you don't see these kind of stats often. Weird.
2013-09-10 17:30
lol@stats, nip are lucky on this, should've been a win for VG
2013-09-10 17:18
yeah yeah ofc ofc
2013-09-10 17:22
always them lucky Swedes :( always them unlucky French :)

unlucky verygames that shox's net had to fuck
2013-09-10 17:34
they wont win in a perfect condition is clearly a team not used to be nr2, this long time and still nip undefeated
2013-09-10 17:42
If any team is used used to being nr2, it's vg.
2013-09-10 17:57
i think they already got used to finish 2nd :P and its nonsense to write that they wont win in a perfect condition, just shows how biased u are
2013-09-10 19:15
you dont think that nip gets better in better condition aswell`? dont be silly dude, nip is awful online compared to lan. A normal nr 2 team do E_V_E_R_Y_T_H_I_N_G to beat nr 1 and they are very far from showing that.
2013-09-10 19:18
they did have good conditions? best conditions are when youre playing in your own house, not on lan, because youre used to play at this place (however motivation isnt as high as it is on lans). and no, vg are not that far away from beating nip, they have already played several close maps with nip and who knows what would have happened if they won some of them
2013-09-10 19:41
i just love thoose if's. come back 2014-09-10 and lets see if they have won a match vs nip.
2013-09-10 19:47
what im trying to say is that nip won many close maps against VG. so u cant say that vg are that far away from nip. thats all
2013-09-10 20:14
so the fact that nip has 19-1 in maps in 1 year doesnt make you feel wow thats onesided? and like 33% of them is a complete stomp.
2013-09-11 07:44
VG have had line up changes (not an excuse) but it is clearly obvious that this newest line up is putting up the best fight against NIP. At least makes for better matches.
2013-09-11 12:37
2013-09-10 17:38
gr8 game.
2013-09-10 17:41
if they went to OT ScreaM could reach 100 frags, damn he had more headshots than any of his teammates had kills
2013-09-10 17:41
Should have said that verygames played the last map with 4... shoxie lagged 95% of the game, when the lag went out verygames won 3 rounds in a row but it was already 15 for NiP
2013-09-10 17:41
they weren't just giving a fuck, dh next week, they wouldn't show all their strats in a online match like these.
2013-09-10 17:45
Wow! NiP Wins! Im so excited with this! Amazing news!
2013-09-10 17:49
Unless 1st place was like 5k+ they probably would not reveal very much online vs VG.
2013-09-10 17:50
u VG fans can bring up all the excuses u want but the fact remains that NiP beated VG for the 19th time, which is a rofl.
2013-09-10 17:55
GTR just amazing. He is #1 in CS:GO ;)
2013-09-10 17:56
Interestings stats VG scored 10 kills more than NIP And yet NIP won by 3 rounds over VG
2013-09-10 18:01
VG better at saving? I guess.

Keep on trying ya little troll. It's funny how you keep trying. Is this the 3rd, 4th or 5th comment you make here trying to prove that shoxie is bad or that VG would've lost regardless of shoxies situation. We get it already, go fuck up an other community.

World bigb1rd 
Ex6TenZ actually played really well which was nice to see. Scream obviously beasted it and the rest were strong too. Shame they lost in the end but they gave them a great game on all three maps and it genuinely could have gone in VGs favour on inferno in slightly different cicumstances.

Nice match. I'm sure the result would have looked different if shoxie hadn't lagged.

2013-09-10 18:37
Ahahaha look at all the crying VG fans in this thread. Hilarious. Guys, after like 30 losses against NiP you should be used to it...
2013-09-10 18:55
Get a grip Klaus, anyone with a brain can see that it was 4v5 on the last map, but then again from the posts you make you do appear to be a brainlesss, dribbling kraut.
2013-09-11 11:59
And your "You're a Nazi!" comment just made you look very smart.
2013-09-11 12:21
That's the vibe you're giving, Helmut.
2013-09-11 12:28
so they los tmirage because?it was 5on5
2013-09-11 14:11
Brilliant logic..
2013-09-11 18:42
Scream is fucking sick. Having better stats than GTR who mostely kills from behind. Feels like NiP and VG is on another level against other teams. They making other teams look like bots.
2013-09-10 18:57
NiP is still on a whole another level if consistent-wise )
2013-09-11 12:05
ye gtr gets most of his kills on ct side but yea most kills from behind,logiK
2013-09-11 14:12
tbh, vg should've won this
2013-09-10 19:30
great game VG, next time gogogo

WTF LOL anyone with 50% or more HS either 1. using soft 2. GTR 3. ScreaM that's it :D
2013-09-11 10:35
There was one game, cant remember which but VG headshot rating was incredible. Scream was on 70+ and everyone was above 50-60. Was ridiculous.
2013-09-11 12:28
-ScreaM +apEX 71.0 hs% and +90 kills doesnt mean you win important rounds or make the right decisions ))
2013-09-11 12:04
scream actually shut me up in this bo3 and in the latest games,he let go his stupid shooting style and his movement is a lot better(he doesnt only clicks W and runs),apEX is a "fool" player in a nice way ofcourse :)
2013-09-11 14:10
Honestly I'm not that familiar with apex's play style / his usual role in teams. But what I've seen from ScreaM is that ofc he's a superior aimer compared to almost any1. But. For example the game vs NiP he made some really awkward mistakes, (like in D2 he didnt call 2 guys coming B, which led them to lose the round because 2 of the remaining VG guys were at A). At least that's how I personally saw it. And I recall reading in some article/comment that people say that he ain't always communicating enough, which in CS of course is crucial ))
2013-09-11 16:50
Really hope your trolling, i get it when people say ScreaM's game sense and decision makeing falters abit sometimes, but the fact is that he wins alot of important rounds like 1v2 , 1v3 or multiple 3-4-5k for vg almost everytime they play and thats a fact, i dont know where people get that idea do some of you even watch the games?...
