VG beat NiP for MSI Beat it spot
VeryGames defeated Ninjas in Pyjamas to secure the first European spot at the MSI Beat it World Finals in China in November.
It took VeryGames 16 matches to beat NiP, but they finally did it: the French giants, one of the most successful teams in the history of CS:Source, outdid their CS:GO arch-rivals in the last-four stage of the MSI Beat it! 2013 European Finals.
It was a one-sided game, which will come as a shock to only a few people, given NiP's recent online results (14-16 defeat to k1ck and close victories against Astana Dragons and CPLAY).
On de_inferno_se, neither side really stood out in the first half as VeryGames picked up a narrow 8-7 lead at the break. However, in the second half the French side were simply too hot to handle, giving their opponent no chance as they walked away with a 16-8 victory.
16th time was the charm for VeryGames
The map that followed was de_mirage_ce, where VG picked up a comfortable 10-5 lead while playing on the CT side. NiP always looked to be on the back foot and they had little chance against the Frenchmen, who ran out 16-7 victors to assure themselves of a place at the MSI Beat it Finals in China.
