NiP win Fragbite Masters 2013
After losing the DH Winter final Ninjas in Pyjamas have returned to winning ways, albeit online, by earning the title of Fragbite Masters champions thanks to defeating Clan-Mystik in the grand final 2-0 (16-3 on de_inferno & 16-9 on de_dust2).
After almost one month of play, Fragbite Masters came to its final day of play this Friday. Four teams were left in contention for the biggest share of the 140,000 SEK (~15,500€) prize purse - NiP, über G33KZ, Clan-Mystik and LGB eSports.
The first semi-final saw Ninjas in Pyjamas overrun the former Copenhagen Wolves squad 16-7 on de_inferno and 16-4 on de_nuke, with Christopher "GeT_RiGhT" Alesund putting up incredible numbers (54:22 in total).

On the other side of the bracket, the two teams that knocked out the Ukrainian powerhouses Astana and Na`Vi in the quarter-finals, LGB and Clan-Mystik respectively, played a very close match that saw the ESWC champions come out on top 2-0 (16-14 on de_inferno & 16-13 on de_mirage).
In the grand final, NiP continued with their amazing form from earlier in the day by destroying Clan-Mystik on de_inferno 16-3, courtesy of Richard "Xizt" Landström's 27 kills.
The second map de_dust2 started in a more even fashion, as the Frenchmen, who played all day with a stand-in Kenny "kennyS" Schrub instead of their star AWPer Hovik "KQLY" Tovmassian, took an early lead.
Clan-Mystik hung on until 6-6, but the Ninjas were relentless and they took over once again, eventually clinching the map 16-9 despite an amazing effort by Dan "apEX" Madesclaire who put up 30 kills.
