HLTV.org have won Virtus.pro Staff Cup #1 after a 2-0 (16-7 de_cache, 16-13 de_mirage) victory over NiP staff in the grand final.

After the group stage was finished last weekend, the top twelve teams advanced to the playoffs, with the third place finisher in each group being placed directly in the lower bracket.

HLTV.org finished undefeated in the group stage, and made their way to the grand final with wins over E-Frag.net, GoodGame.ru, and NiP's staff, featuring Faruk "pita" Pita.


Striker helped HLTV.org win the Virtus.pro Staff Cup 

Despite coming from the upper bracket, HLTV.org had no advantage in the grand final, which was played in a standard best-of-three setting, after NiP knocked out Na`Vi in the consolidation final.

On de_cache HLTV.org reigned supreme throughout the Cup, and defeated NiP staff 16-7. Second map de_mirage was much closer, but our staff ultimately prevailed with a 16-13 win.

god knows i have been on the wrong side on arguments with you, but i gotta call what i saw - all of you guys played really well, and even meshed well as a team - you, striker, makku ... I guess all that time watching proplayers has paid off :) Congrats on a victory well earned !
2014-11-23 23:36
Thank you :P Yeah we tried to stay supportive of each other at all times and it worked well.
2014-11-23 23:45
I liked the 2 HS's you got in like 3 secs on the last round on Cache! I even think it was a 1V2 that you won! I lost 10$ on the first game you played vs NiP but I then won like 5$ on the final. GG WP! <3
2014-11-23 23:42
Dare_Devil so good headshotter even Ned Stark came to compliment him, the man without head!

He bought account with VAC already cuz he used some software to make movies that VAC didnt allow. And yeah, he is noobish. Played with him and against him few times on esea. He is only inspecting his skins ingame, especaly dragon lore. Cant hit a shot, and cringe to much if you dont drop him back.
