Virtus devour NiP in King of Kings

Virtus.pro have advanced to the Caseking King of Kings grand final after a 2-0 (16-9 de_inferno, 16-8 de_mirage) win over the new NiP lineup.

Virtus.pro started the series with an early 6-0 lead on the terrorist side of de_inferno. NiP won seven of the next eight rounds, but Jarosław "pashaBiceps" Jarząbkowski's heroics got his team the lead.

Up 8-7 after the significantly harder side of the map, NiP could not muster a comeback in the second half, as Virtus reduced them to just two terrorist rounds to win 16-9.


byali was a monster in Virtus.pro's 2-0 win 

After a short break play resumed on de_mirage, where Virtus once again had a strong start as terrorists, ultimately leading to a dominant 10-5 lead on the harder side.

The Swedes, led by Patrik "f0rest" Lindberg, fought back in the second half despite losing the pistol round, but once again to no avail, as they lost 8-16, and 0-2 overall.

No one in the NiP organization blamed him, Fifflaren himself made the decision to retire.
2014-11-17 00:07
So is there a different title for all news posts?
2014-11-16 17:05
I still think twist works way better for nip than maikelele will. I'm not that type to quickly judge a "new team" but in this case it's only one player replacement and I know how maikelele plays from his former teams. I just couldn't and still can't see what synergy they might have. Either way, nips actual REAL problem is they just are lacking behind in tactics and confidence. They don't have the same sick nading/molotov/smoking techniques the other teams have.

it's really not maikelele's fault that NiP lost. All NiP players are playing like bunch of mediocre pug players. Aim isnt just there. Clearly that byali 1v2 situation near connector shows why NiP is in a serious slump.

Wow, the NiP players were all terrible. It's like they didn't know what to do most of the time. They obviously have NO confidence, and can't rely on eachother the same whey they did back in the day when the team was like a calibrated killing machine. Everyones eyes are on them, and they probably feel a lot of preassure, but this was just terrible.

2014-11-16 17:12
Friberg in that 2v1 though... Hahaha!
2014-11-16 17:12
f0rest is just as much to blame as friberg. Friberg was baiting for f0rest so he could get an easy target in the back that EVEN was standing still and aiming at friberg. f0rest starts shoting and misses and byali kills him. And then friberg should have been able to kill him but he didn't, really funny to see people only blaming friberg when f0rest probably did a worse misstake because his target was standing still. All in all NiP played really bad as a team, and that's why VP pretty much stomped them. Don't even get why people would bet on NiP with a new member against one of the best teams? xD
2014-11-16 17:17
It seems like f0rest is having the same crazy performance anxiety as he did when he and GTR left fnatic to join SK back in 1.6. I wonder how long / what it will take him to overcome it.
2014-11-16 17:36

Ofcourse NiP's current form wasn't only because of fifflaren. They were all missing easy shots, making stupid decisions and today the lack of communication was so obvious. Seems like they just lost the will to win, or at least the fun while playing. They're no going to win anything big untill they can get that back somehow.

dude...
2014-11-17 02:37
Didn't actually see the match, but my guess is that what seems like made them lose is just them collectively having a bad day. There's no one to put on the spot (looking over stats) who is to blame for the loss. Even Maikelele with -10 isn't too bad of a result, given the full result of the two maps. NiP just needs more time to be shaken together, and I would assume they are still saving some endgame for dreamhack? Not that VP isn't, but it's easier to just go with it, while having played together for a longer amount of time - and everyones role in the team is set in stone. Too bad NiP, don't let this affect yuo and come back in full form for DHW!
2014-11-16 17:41
not when they are missing out the most basic aspect of this game which is AIM. With that level of fragging ability, does not matter if its lan or online, Nip will get blown out.
2014-11-16 17:43
Yeah, agreed. It's almost as if Get_Right and F0rest need to be in that big final for them to show up in good form, tbh. They seem to need that pressure somehow to be the best.
2014-11-16 17:45
I don't disagree, but I think it's tough to judge them on this performance. You can say what you want, but the NiP players don't always play like this, it was a terrible performance by them, where they didn't even hit the most basic shots. Judging them from this performance, would be like judging Manchester United losing to MKDons (sorry for football reference). It happens once in a while, but yeah.. It does happen.
2014-11-16 18:04
they have been playing like this for so many months. This is not just "once in a while" thing. I think you are seriously blinded by fanboism.

2014-11-16 17:43
Well f0rest did get an eco bash, without that he would have been on the same amount as the other players in NiP. What I want to say is that no one in NiP played good.

2014-11-16 17:47
They need to catch up with all the top teams tactics wise. They're clearly behind on both ct and t. They might also want to try and play around eksems awp. They didn't really set him up like the other teams with great awper usually do. Some of his awping problems this game were purely on him though, he was repeeking wayyy too much. They also need to find a way to have get_right be get_right again. He has been playing pretty standard lately and he's not all that impressive when he's not catching people off guard.

makail fitting in well as a fifflaren replacement i see. this isn't all his fault (though this bo3 he repeeked too much i feel). he isn't being utilized the way other teams use their awpers. he needs to not be locked into a fixed position on ct side and rather sent to one place for a pick at the start before moving back into a more defensive position if they achieve a man advantage. come on nip, you are failing at basic counter-strike
2014-11-16 18:37

here come the excuses lol, IN ANY SPORT IN THE WORLD, this is not acceptable for a top team, you are saying that if a team in any sport gets raped that's it's ok for them to because they have a "new" player. Jesus man, they it's 1 player. not 2 or 3, 1 replacement, which is replacing the world professional to ever be in a top tier team, so really it's not a change at all.

jesus man, give him time to get acclimated with the team

As i've said, Fifflaren wasn't their main problem, they can pick up jw or olofm - nothing will change anyway.

EPIC I predicted this would happen and even talked shit to me in the match thread saying NiP will rise again, when I said fiffy LEAVING was not the cure to their problem, they are not at the level of the other teams anymore, they don't need to just change fiffy, they need to bring in a whole new team. NiP are done.

After three "official" games it's safe to say: remove Maikelele. Iamrite? Also, NiP being the most successful team in CS:GO, it's probably the most watched team, not only to observe the individual talent, but the strats they are using. I would say, and this is so far out there so bare with me, they aren't showing everything they got with a major just in two weeks. Unthinkable! Someone will win (or lose) A TON of skins in DW, that's for sure.
