Astana to grand final over NiP

October 13th, 2013 00:49

SLTV StarSeries VII consolidation final brought us an instant classic that went to double overtime on map three, as Astana Dragons defeated NiP 2-1 (7-16 on de_inferno_se, 16-12 on de_cache & 22-20 on de_dust2_se).

Both NiP and Astana Dragons defeated fnatic earlier in the tournament, and also lost to VeryGames, so it was time for them to meet each other and decide who gets the second shot to beat the French-Belgian team in the grand final.

The CIS-based team that was created to beat NiP didn't have the best of starts on their own map pick, de_inferno_se, as the Swedes went up 3-0 on the T side.


f0rest had a number of amazing rounds and was NiP's best fragger in this series

Patrik "f0rest" Lindberg set the tone early with a 1-on-2 clutch during a 4-kill round which reset Astana's economy right after they won the first buy round. NiP went up to a comfortable 7-2 lead, which the Dragons weren't able to reduce until the end of the half which ended 10-5.

The Swedes then won the second pistol round as well, and brought the map to a close without too many problems 16-7, falsely insinuating that this match might end up being quick and one sided.

Moving on to NiP's selection de_cache, it all started going wrong as Astana quickly went up 6-0 on the attacking side. Richard "Xizt" Landström's 1vs2 clutch broke the streak but the deficit quickly increased to 9-1.

Christopher "GeT_RiGhT" Alesund then finally showed up on the map and scored 3 M4A1-S kills to start his team's comeback. It turned out that the Swedes finally found an answer how to defend, and it was once again Alesund's 3 kills plus an assist in the last round of the half that sealed the score at 9-6.

However, the second pistol round escaped them by a second as Lindberg seemed to have clutched a 1-on-4, only to have the C4 defused in the last second.


Edward was Astana Dragons' best player on de_cache, and maybe in the whole series

They tried to surprise Astana with a full buy in the second round, but Ioann "Edward" Sukhariev had one of his numerous 4-kill rounds to prevent them.

The Dragons went up 14-6 before NiP finally found a way to break through their defense in the A bombsite, and they took advantage of that in rounds to come, getting closer at 14-9 and 15-12.

It wasn't enough though, as all it took was one round in which Markelov and Dauren "AdreN" Kystaubayev clinched a 2-on-2 retake to even up the score to 1-1 with a 16-12 win on de_cache.

The final map was de_dust2_se where Astana began on the T side. Kiril "ANGE1" Karasiow's team went up 3-0 before Robin "Fifflaren" Johansson won a 1-on-1 to secure the first buy for his team.

He wasn't able to clutch in a 1-on-3 situation in the next round though, so Astana went up 5-1.

A couple of clutch rounds took place in the next few rounds, with Alesund resolving a 1-on-1 and then Mihail "Dosia" Stolyarov doing the same for 6-3, eventually Dragons staying ahead 11-4 at the half.

That quickly turned into 13-4 after they shut down an A attack in the second pistol, but Johansson continued with clutch play, this time getting 2 in a 2-on-3 to get his team back in the game.

NiP started getting timely entry kills and opening sites up which forced Astana to save weapons several times, and the score quickly turned into 13-10.

It seems Fifflaren had already aftermatch plans

Fifflaren won multiple important clutches on dust2

In an eco round that followed, it looked like the CIS squad will finally catch a break, but Johansson once again stepped up with 3 kills in a 2-on-4, including a nailbiting 1vs1 against Karasiow in the end.

Next noteworthy situation happened when NiP came as close as they've been for a long time, looking to even up the score after 13-12, but Markelov pulled out an excellent 1vs1 with his AWP and defused the C4 in the last second for 14-12.

Landström made up for losing that 1vs1 by taking out 4 opponents in the next round and it forced Astana to eco, making the score all even at 14-14 with two rounds to go.

Match point went the Ukrainians' way, but Lindberg's three fast kills at double doors sent this clash into overtime.

After a short break, the teams reverted to their starting sides and NiP opened up with a flawless defense, following it up with a complete shut down at A by Alesund's SCAR-20 and Lindberg's M4A1-s for 17-15.

However, the home team never gave up and the score was quickly completely turned around with Dragons on match point 18-17.

They seemed to be ready to start celebrating after Markelov scored two AWP entry kills in the last round, but Lindberg and Johansson pulled off an amazing 2-on-5 clutch, with the former getting a few especially crucial headshots to send the match into second overtime, 18-18.

Neither team wanted to let go, and the score was even twice more at 19-19 and at 20-20, intertwined with an amazing retake by Sukhariev who had another quad-kill and helped win a 2-on-4.

Two in-game leaders congratulating each other after a big battle

ANGE1's new team finally got the better of NiP

And it was Astana Dragons to finally string two rounds together, with Stolyarov stepping up in a 2-on-2 at the A bombsite with a couple of great headshots, followed by an overwhelming attack at the same bombsite in the last round for the final score of 22-20.

I wish we could see the best 2 teams in the grand final but I am afraid we will not. AD won but they are clearly worst than NiP. Just look at the scores, they got raped in inferno, won in de_cache because thats a completely useless, random and retarded map and got lucky in d2. Final Score NiP 48-45 AD (rounds)
2013-10-13 00:59
u can say this how much u want! we know nip still top 1 but ad proof they are stable top 3!
2013-10-13 01:00
stable top 3 xDD sk, lgb, n!, cph and more top 5 teams didnt attend so dont be so sure baby
2013-10-13 01:04
i know right but its sk(lemondogs) problem that they didnt attend lans... and we saw ad performance is great overall to beat nip.. for me they are top 3 .. just my opinion :)
2013-10-13 01:05
no they are definitely strong no doubt, but there are also a lot of other strong teams which will show themselve on the next events so it will be interesting to see whats the order in europe
2013-10-13 01:12
yes to be honest ppl a bit overrate sk gaming they just proof them self 1 event... expecting crazy game from lgb on lan vs top teams... and vg seems rly strong now!
2013-10-13 01:13
sk, lgb, n!, and cph are far from being capable of beating NiP on lan... AD is clearly a solid top3, despite their poor online performances
2013-10-13 01:50
maybe but its not neccessary to beat nip for being top 3 if they can beat ad
2013-10-13 02:53
dont cry fangirl astano will dominate ur teams lk np
2013-10-13 05:03
you really think SK and lgb are the same level as AD (on lan I mean, as adren usually cant properly perform online)
2013-10-13 19:29
got lucky od dd2? did you even see that match?
2013-10-13 01:01
got lucky? they have bad luck in dd2 and still win.
2013-10-13 01:02
u call winning both pistol rounds a bad luck ? 1 pistol round won by nip and they were winners
2013-10-13 01:30
U call it luck when AD were on match point 3 times and didnt make it.

Best teams are the ones who win their matches. Therefore, yes, the 2 best teams are in the grand final.

its all opinion until they all attend 1 big lan, lets hope dreamhack will be that the one they all attend
2013-10-13 08:46
big or small lan is STILL A LAN! In CS HISTORY, "i think" no team yet throw a game in lan event even small or big lan. So deal with it. Best team in that event are on the finals. It's BO3, no luck include unless it's BO1.
2013-10-13 08:59
thats not what i said, this is a one off result though, _at the moment_ same with the VG result, all i said is a big lan like DHW will settle peoples SK > AD and the usual shit i see spouted here
2013-10-13 09:01
Jon da Man! (:
2013-10-13 09:23
u r simply clueless
2013-10-13 01:13
Don't be stupid and just fucking comment here without reading! de_cache is NiP's choice we they expect that they are better team on that map. Next time read and understand 1st before you comment. Even if it's 16-0 on de_inferno, still, A WIN IS A WIN! So cry there alone don't start hoping that NiP will win in DH WINTER!
2013-10-13 08:55
cache random and retarded map? lucky in dd2? hahahaha you need kleenex guy :DD

if u havent see whole game then just shut up it was 100% best game i saw in CSGO
2013-10-13 10:17
You are just mad . Why would AD be lucky on d2? they just played amazing thats a bad excuse . And since when is de_cache useless? when NiP were winning it nobody was saying anything , now when they lost its useless map .. OK

2013-10-13 00:50
markeloff played very well but dosia was mvp imo
2013-10-13 00:52
They all played fantastic , Dosia had most epic moments but dont forget markeloffs kills , Angel 1v3 on B on OT , Edwards crazy shots . AdreN also had some good plays but he played worse this time.
2013-10-13 00:54
Dosia was terrible until the end. Markeloff played consistently throughout.
2013-10-13 00:56

I think when he and fiff were 2v5, forest jumped on short and probably said to fiff "hold ramp, im gonna go crazy on A and rape everyone", something like that lol!
2013-10-13 01:21
yeah, dat was rly crazy! and two rounds in the beginning of the 2nd half when he did that crazy 2 kills in mid and 3 kills on A in the next round were just great too
2013-10-13 01:30

It can't be a 2-1, and neither a 2-0. The final is Bo5.

2013-10-13 00:54
And if AD wins tomorrow?
2013-10-13 00:54
if: 1-2) VG, AD 3) NIP 4)...
2013-10-13 00:58
doesnt change a thing whether Ad or Vg will win tomorrow. NiP will still remain the best team overall.Statistic wise its almost impossible to dethrone them. VG 2nd (by current performance I would say they are the strongest since their 1st victory over NiP, than they managed to beat both AD and NiP here in SLTV) AD and company 3rd. Tgwri1s or reakq should make a monthly or season ranking. Long time no seen such a nice blog from them.
2013-10-13 01:03
That's why one shouldn't base a list of topteams on former performance. It doesn't matter if NIP won lans ages ago, it matters who is winning now.
2013-10-13 02:24
not anymore u can say NiP is still the best...NiP will still be the best if they win next LAN, but for now they're a little bit dethroned, sorry...way too many mistakes and lost matches for NiP...
2013-10-13 14:27
We'll see what happens, I cheer for VG. But for sure these 3 teams can beat each other any time now, depends on their day.
2013-10-13 15:16
lol! tard. AD win against NIP once and nip are now 3rd! bahahahaha idiot.

Yeah he dropped some of his performance, couldn't hold the sites very good.
2013-10-13 01:14
I noticed it when they played vs vg online and on lan he was playing badly like he wasn't even trading kills. And on inferno he is usually a beast but he slaked alot. ____________________ Still happy to see other Teams rise up and compete head to head with nip __________________ To bad for you fnatic guys not being up to the task :) ps: I hate moddii

I would say g_r is one of 10 best players in history. ANd he actually played well today
2013-10-13 01:08
if you wouldnt say that he is one of the top 5 best players in history you would be dumb,wtf these guys dont think xD
2013-10-13 01:14
I know he is one of the best, i just dont like the autosniper he uses so often so thats why i troll :D
2013-10-13 01:21
He played well? Why don't you take your head from your ass and actually look without biased opinion? He was poor throughout the match, and in d2 where they lost it he was the worst player. He was bad throught all the tournament..

in the last OT when AD is up 3-2 and they are 1 rounds from winning the match Get_Right is shaking uncontrollably from excitement thats when you know shit got serious
2013-10-13 00:54
I think he was getting shot from behind which made him jump, he wasn't expecting. There were two AD near him
2013-10-13 01:00
right before the round started,he was bitting his nails and his shaking was clear from cable of his siberia elite and his nip jersey pretty sure all players was in the same condition.that adrenaline rush..can hardly imagine!

Couldn't agree more,fiffilaren has been holding the team's back all the time.But I think Friberg is actually a great player,especially entryfrag-wise,so laying off fifflaren and recruiting delpan might be a good option.

had to watch on mute, but CSGO finally getting the excitement i want when i watch CS, maybe some 1.6ers will finally admit that aswell?
2013-10-13 08:46
the game it's still boring to me. Problem? just drop it with all 1.6/css/csgo thing. Enjoy yuor game and leave ppl to play what they like
2013-10-13 12:27
thing is, people were complaining about nip being so dominant, making it boring to watch, now teams are taking them to 3maps, double OTs, beating them on lan, and yet its still boring :|
2013-10-13 12:43
nip dominastion was interesting to watch tbh. still the games is boring(not the scene but the game). this is my personal opinon
2013-10-13 13:27
leave people to play what they like? its the 1.6 elitists not giving cs go any time of the day because they cant let go of the nostalgia..
2013-10-13 13:27
why should i play a game i find boring? just because it's called cs? I can't find excitment in it so i gave up on it. Yeah i'm a 1.6 elitist. Problem? your community it's also really stubborn not wanting to make so changes "omg it's a new game stop complaying and play atleast 300 hours to get used to it" - witch is wrong. A games is supposed to hook you intoit right from the first hours. "omg don't change that because it's too 1.6-ish..." like 1.6 was a plague. there isn't a magic formula to please all players so get over it AND STOP THESE POINTESS ARGUMENTS

The DRAGONS have become good and dominant in a really short period of time and of course its because of their insane skill+experience and of course because of ANGE1's waaaaay tooo pro captain and stratigic wise skills that help the team to win against such teams as NiP.... gg "Best teams are the ones who win their matches. Therefore, yes, the 2 best teams are in the grand final." (c) Jonathan E
