NiP ease past HellRaisers

Ninjas in Pyjamas are through to the semi-finals at DreamHack Winter 2014 following a 2-0 victory over HellRaisers (16-5 on de_dust2 and 16-6 on de_inferno).

On de_dust2, NiP, who got to play as Terrorist first, kicked things off with a B push that wreakd havoc in HellRaisers' defense. After making it 3-0 fairly easily, the Swedes picked up the first gun round of the match with a mid-B split, with Adam "friberg" Friberg opening things up in the site with two crucial entry frags.

NiP remained in the driving seat for the next few rounds and made it seven in a row for them, until a double kill from Kirill "ANGE1" Karasiow in long frustrated the home side as they were left without money to plant the bomb.

But the Swedes responded in convincing fashion by turning towards the A site, with Christopher "GeT_RiGhT" Alesund getting three kills to deny HR the retake. A Desert Eagle double from Aleksandr "s1mple" Kostyliev in the following round allowed HellRaisers to win the eco, but NiP quickly regained control of proceedings as they secured a 13-2 lead, with Mikail "Maikelele" Bill getting some crucial AWP frags towards the end of the half.

On the CT side, NiP decided to go aggressively in the pistol round and rushed middle with two of their players, who ended up getting taken down, which paved the way for HR to win the round. The Ukrainian side went on to win the following two anti-eco rounds to reduce the deficit to 5-14, but NiP proved superior in gun play as they secured a 16-5 win.


f0rest turned in a great display

Next up was de_inferno, where NiP once again came off the brighter following a perfect retake in A in the pistol round. After losing the first eco round, HR went on a full buy but the move did not pay off as they lost the round and four guns as well.

With the scoreline 4-0 in favour of NiP, HR then finally managed to break through the Swedes' defense as Emil "kUcheR" Akhundov got three kills to his name in A. The Ukrainians would close the gap to just one round at 3-4, but NiP never lost the grip on the game and kept their momentum going as they went into half-time up 10-5.

In the second half, NiP piled more misery on HR by winning the pistol round thanks to a a spectular ace from Patrik "f0rest" Lindberg, who would also prove decisive in the first gun round, in which he got three kills in quick succession during a fake in A. One single round was all that HR managed to get while playing on the CT side as they could not stop NiP from running out 16-6 winners and advancing to the semi-finals.

If you lack experience then you are tempted to say that they played bad yesterday. But they didn't. They lost against LDLC (2nd best in the world) because some dumb mistakes. And they won against ESC after losing both pistol rounds, and ESC played some good CT rounds.
2014-11-28 12:52
Also it was on Cache, Nip is horrible on cache. Thank god they banned it this time.
2014-11-28 13:01
They always do in the group stage...
2014-11-28 12:55
they always play bad in group play..... told it yesterday when nip is in playoff mode they are like 20% better maybe even 30% it is just ridic. get_right and forest are people that feel so comfy in playoffs. they hate groups
2014-11-28 14:26
People are so dumb, NiP is greatest champions of this game, never understimate them. They wanted this side of bracket, they hunt just money and dont care about some shitty events which doesnt matter at all.
2014-11-28 12:58
Funny - brackets was random drawed with first & seconds. They could have played against fnatic as well. There ain't no "side of bracket" this time.
2014-11-28 13:26
Uhm.. but since fnatic lost they would 100% dodge fnatic by placing 2nd place aswell.
2014-11-28 14:20

Potentially unless HR know how to money fuck them. Thing is NiP rarely play mirage on a competitive level and mirage is also HR's best map.

Yeah , and IF they win dreamhack, they'll just take the money and wont win anything till summer. You'll be dissapointed if this happens.
2014-11-28 14:04
No I wont.
2014-11-28 14:06
True, it almost seems like NiP cares only about money and their motivation is only majors
