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).
