NiP win IronGaming

NiP have just defeated Natus Vincere in the IronGaming grand final 2-0 (16-12 de_cache, 16-8 de_dust2) for the $10,000 first-place cheque.

Na`Vi started off de_cache with a won pistol round, putting them to a quick 3-0 lead, but NiP managed to reply with three following gunrounds to tie it all up at 3-3. A good defense on the A site put Na`Vi back to a lead by one round, only to fall short to NiP's individual picks all over the map for 4-5.

Adam "friberg" Friberg and Patrik "f0rest" Lindberg then combined for a two-vs-five all over the map and with Christopher "GeT_RiGhT" Alesund's one-vs-three clutch at the B bombsite, NiP were up 8-4. Na`Vi picked up the last three rounds, but were shut down by Friberg's two one-shot headshots in the second pistol round.

Natus Vincere decided to do their usual forcebuy in the third round, but eventually fell short in a one-vs-one as the team ran out of time. A smooth eco went into NiP's hands for 7-12, but then the DreamHack Summer 2014 runner-ups started making a stand.

GeT_RiGhT puts NiP on a 1-0 lead after de_cache 

Three B strategies worked out well for them, as well as the following round despite Friberg's efforts in a two-vs-five, which put NiP on their first eco round in the half, as the scoreboard said 12-12.

Na`Vi then got picked off one by one and even though they were up a man in the next round, Alesund turned the situation around with four kills in a three-vs-four. His triple helped his team get three map points, but they only needed one to close out de_cache at 16-12.

de_dust2's beginning saw NiP taking the initial pistol round on the Counter-Terrorists side, as well as the first gunround after a B split by Na`Vi. Ladislav "GuardiaN" Kovács' and Sergey "starix" Ischuk's triples helped lower the deficit to only one round, but Friberg was too hot to handle, as he rushed forwards for 7-3.

Robin "Fifflaren" Johansson was the one to watch in the eleventh round, as he single-handedly took out most of the offense on short, as he picked up a quick quad-kill with an AWP.

friberg was too hot to handle on de_dust2 

Two following rounds were split between the teams, but it was NiP picking the pace up again as they stormed onto the Terrorists side with a 11-4 scoreline.

Even though their entire team was on less than a hundred HP combined, they were able to win the second pistol as well, and we could see Lindberg exploiting the new wallbanging system from T spawn to the double-doors in the following antieco.

Despite Na`Vi winning a round without a loss, NiP's quick A split put them on ten match points, which was three rounds afterwards exchanged for a $10,000 cheque at 16-8, while Na`Vi will go home with $2,000.

european teams, led by carn, negotiated the prize purse for esea where even last place gets $3k so there'd be as little risk as possible. as a result, the prize is really top heavy and money wise it's almost irrelevant whether you get 3rd or last.
