Na`Vi have defeated NiP 2-1 (16-1 de_dust2, 11-16 de_cache, 16-13 de_inferno) to remain Casekings of the Hill in week #3. LDLC finish third.
First round saw the two challengers of the week, NiP and LDLC, meet. LDLC opened with a 11-4 first half on de_inferno and quickly closed out the map with a 16-9 score.
Second map de_nuke saw Patrik "f0rest" Lindberg take matters in his own hands as he finished +24 with a 1.44 KPR to lead NiP to a 16-9 win despite of his teammates' struggles.
The Ninjas were able to win seemingly every close round and turn every early deficit around to ultimately gain a monstrous 13-2 lead at half time and win the series 16-2, 2-1.
seized had a great series versus NiP in CKoTH
If NiP were dominant on de_dust2 versus LDLC, it couldn't have been worse versus Na`Vi. The defending champions, led by Denis "seized" Kostin, scored a quick 16-1 win.
Once again it was f0rest who pulled his clearly out-of-shape team over the finish line on de_cache. The CS player of the year 2006 got 26 kills as NiP tied the series 16-11.
NiP fought back in the next half and got to thirteen rounds, but ultimately Na`Vi's firepower - with Ioann "Edward" Sukhariev also fired up - was too much, and the Swedes lost 13-16.
