LDLC have overcome NiP 2-1 (16-11 de_dust2, 17-19 de_inferno, 16-10 de_cobblestone) to win MLG X-Games Aspen 2015 and $25,000.

LDLC opened up the rematch of DreamHack Winter's grand final by winning the pistol round, but NiP quickly rebounded by winning round two, allowing them go up 2-1.

Richard "shox" Papillon's squad went on a four round winning streak to take over the lead and extend it to 5-2, but then Mikail "Maikelele" Bill's AWPing got NiP back into the game.

After making it 3-5, Adam "friberg" Friberg's two AK-47 kills got NiP within one, and the Swedes soon strolled to six rounds total, regaining the lead at 6-5 scoreline.

LDLC's aggressive play in the middle area tied the score at six, but then NiP showed strong terrorist side play as they closed out the half with three wins, and a 9-6 lead.

NiP's in-game leader Richard "Xizt" Landström combined with newest addition Maikelele for five kills to win the Swedes the second pistol round, this time as counter-terrorists.

Xizt vs. LDLC

Xizt's NiP got a second shot at LDLC after DH Winter final loss 

LDLC then split into the A bombsite, and with their pistols took down NiP and broke their money to make the score 9-10. The French then won the next round, forcing NiP on another save.

All of a sudden up 11-10, Fabien "kioShiMa" Fiey's team wound up winning eight unanswered rounds to turn the game on its heels, up 14-10 after a 6-10 deficit a short while ago.

The Ninjas could muster only one more round before Nathan "NBK-" Schmitt and company put them out of their misery and walked away with a 16-11 map one victory on de_dust2.

friberg started off de_inferno with two kills to put NiP up 1-0, and his team quickly extended their lead to three rounds, despite LDLC's three kills on round three.

Maikelele's triple wasn't enough to keep NiP's streak alive as shox won a one-on-one in B, and the Frenchmen were able to streak four rounds together.

NBK vs. dignitas

NBK had some solid rounds in the grand final 

Two kills by friberg tied the game, and a triple by Patrik "f0rest" Lindberg in A gave NiP another narrow lead. LDLC then regained the lead, as they took over the B site twice.

NBK- ran out of time in the next round in a one-on-one against f0rest, who only had one health point left. From that point on NiP rallied, winning the three final rounds.

Edouard "SmithZz" Dubourdeaux's two kills helped LDLC shut down NiP in B, and they were able to take down NiP twice more to tie the game up at nine rounds a piece.

The combination of SmithZz and NBK- then gave LDLC another lead and forced NiP to save, but a vintage round by Christopher "GeT_RiGhT" Alesund saw him win a key one-on-three.

Tied at 10-10, friberg scored two entires to put NiP back up on top, followed by a one-on-two after plant clutch in B, that forced LDLC on a save round, and down 10-13.

f0rest

f0rest's individual play wasn't enough to defeat LDLC 

Next two rounds were traded before LDLC mustered a force buy win, thanks to doubles from NBK- and kioShiMa, in the A site against NiP's full buy.

NBK- then scored four AK-47 kills in B to pull LDLC within one, but NiP forced map point by taking over the A site for a 15-13 lead, though LDLC still up in maps 1-0.

A two on three by shox and kioShiMa in B, together with NBK-'s two AWP kills a round later, finally forced overtime, where LDLC would continue as counter-terrorists.

LDLC won the opening round, as well as the third round, easily. However, in between f0rest managed to sneak in a one-on-one win to give NiP a chance.

That chance was all the Ninjas needed, as a quad kill by friberg tied the game at seventeen, f0rest's triple gave them a lead, and three kills by Xizt closed the map out 19-17.

NBK-'s triple gave LDLC an early lead on de_cobblestone, as they went up 3-0. NiP quickly tied the game, and Maikelele's triple on round seven allowed them to go up 5-3.

LDLC defeat dignitas

LDLC win; effectively become the best in the world 

A triple AWP effort by shox got LDLC their fourth round, but Xizt did even better as he scored four kills with his M4A4 by the sidehall of the A bombsite.

Double kills by kioShiMa and NBK- got LDLC one more round as terrorists, but they were then closed out by NiP, who rallied to gain a 10-5 halftime lead on the decider.

The Frenchmen won their defensive pistol round as well, resulting in a three round run before NiP attempted two straight buy rounds, neither of which had much success.

kioShiMa won a very quick one-on-two, killing last NiP player with a HE grenade, to put LDLC in the lead. Maikelele then lost a one-on-one to shox in the next round.

Up 12-10, it was in-game leader Vincent "Happy" Schopenhauer's turn to contribute three kills, and NiP were then shut then, as the Swedes couldn't win another round, finally surrendering 10-16.

Nope, they deserved it in the end, although they didn't really wreck NiP. It was a tight match.
2015-01-26 13:13
Right, losing 11 rounds in a row on a map neither team plays is a "tight match". HLTV logic is strong.

Nah, LDLC > Nip though. If Fnatic and Nip would switch players between each other in order to find the best line up as the french teams have done (LDLC, Titan, Epsilon) I'm pretty sure that Swedens best team would beat France best team (LDLC) i.e. Sweden > France.
2015-01-25 23:55

2015-01-26 15:55
As I said... In order to find the best line up. It doens't mean that it should be all individually best players. Rather those who fit best togheter
2015-01-26 00:54
The teams that "fit best together" are the lineups we have now. They've been together for so long and have a ton of synergy and teamplay. If NiP and Fnatic were to switch lineups it would be a crapfest for the first 1-2 months before they got used to each other's play style and they would get demolished by any other top team that has been together for a while.

They didnt deserve it, but what so ever, they only kill with lucky shots, NiP is more skilled, LDLC is just lucky whiny bitches, with shox who is cheating on lan
2015-01-25 23:44
yummy yummy these salty tears are so tasty!
2015-01-25 23:48
That's definitely not true. NiP is by far the luckiest team in their most important matches of all time, no one can disagree if they know their history from majors in particular. Only team that can never call luck on other teams is nip sry
2015-01-25 23:48
Did u see what an incredibly luck LDLC got the entire time with surviving with many players below 25 hp. Your argument would be: Yeah so they aim slightly better but many times this occured when NiP had no armor and LDLC had full buy. I know for fact that LDLC is slightly better but man they are so fucking lucky
2015-01-25 23:58
So are all other teams. It happens very often that teams survive with low hp. If you insist that it happened more often to LDLC, crunch stats and post them.
2015-01-26 10:40
Luck happens in CS. Getting free kills when the enemies peek the wrong direction, getting smoke and wallbang kills and even nade timings can completely destroy the other teams chances for winning.
2015-01-27 02:36
Flipping a coin is luck. Your opponent making mistakes /= luck. The best team won this tournament, the best team won the last major, and the best team won the one before that. Just because some rounds come down to hitting timings or your opponent making mistakes doesn't make it luck. If you allow a "lucky" timing to exist, that means you already made a mistake, it's just the punishment that's delayed, as every round starts out equal, except for the economy, which is again not based on luck. All this talk about luck, whater the team, just comes from sore losers.

The level uf butthurtness is over the limit buddy. A person who doesn't know how to spot the talent is probably blind or a brailess goat.
2015-01-26 11:06
I'm not sure how you can say NiP is more skilled. If winning two Bo3 series on LAN, at DHW and MLG, doesn't prove LDLC is better than what will? Also if your argument is that shox, one of the most respected players in CS, is cheating, then I don't think you've been in the scene for too long and hopefully won't be for much longer.

shox is a fuckin unstoppable beast. maikelele n forest sucked a lot in cbble with awp's, and that cost them the win, but in the end, nice final, but the match beetwen nip/fnatic was one of the best ever. great tourney, thx murica. gratz to ldlc, they deserved it. wp by nip/digitnas/fnatic.

Maikelele worlds best AWP'er, Kappa.
2015-01-25 23:48
He was topfragging on Inferno. He opened up a lot of their rounds on their T sides. He does have some problems on CT side though. And it doesn't look like he had played much on cbble.
2015-01-25 23:55
NiP's journey would be over @ inferno without Maikelele.

It was not. Not sure how that would work, though.
2015-01-26 00:43
lol wtf, who cares about how they look. can't you just congratulate both teams for this insane final (well at least for the first two maps)? GG ldlc and nip, really enjoyed watching this final!
2015-01-26 00:10
It was a great tournament, bar the last map and the w(h)inners. I just have a severe dislike of LDLC (and no, it's not because I'm swedish. I wouldn't want them to win regardless of who they were playing.) Maybe we could have kinokinok, Happy and NBK play with paper bags over their heads?

I'm not sad at all actually, thank you for asking though.
2015-01-26 14:14
But how the hell can looks matter? I'd understand if it was a beauty contest, but this is CS. There are teams I think are not very good looking, but I appreciate their games nonetheless. Please be a bit more mature.
2015-01-26 11:05
I guess it doesn't matter that much in CS. It might make the opposition go on tilt though, so maybe that's one of LDLCs strenghts :O
2015-01-26 14:25
So much for maturity then ^^.
2015-01-26 14:36
Haha, I'm just f**king with you, looks doesn't matter and they are a good team. They won so they probably deserved it. It was a shame about cbble being the last map though. Might not have made any difference in the end but it's an awful map :S
2015-01-26 14:51
Ayy Swede faggot, the LDLC members look way better than your gay NiP team rofl not even a contest.
2015-01-26 18:21
Ooh, struck a nerve did I? I've never said anything about the NiP players, and they are not "my" team. I'm glad you think the LDLC team looks good though!

gg nice game both of the teams LDLC remain number1 now fnatic cant cheat anymore and NiP is coming strong just the 2nd big tournament with this and again 2nd place very nice they will show allot in 2015 if they practice more on different maps and strats
2015-01-26 00:27
Maikelele reminds me a lot of Delpan in 1.6
2015-01-26 00:32
How so?
2015-01-26 00:33
He's good entryfragging as T, but miss the easy shots.
2015-01-26 00:41
But Delpan still made up for those easy shots, he was the kennyS of 1.6. Could hard carry the team single handily.
2015-01-26 00:45

2015-01-26 00:35
i really like smithzz and the current lineup, but i just want to imagine how that lineup would work out with kennys as the full-time awp instead of smithzz the advantage of the current lineup is that shox or even happy/nbk can take over awping if smithzz doesn't hit his shots and that makes the whole setup more versatile but a sniper who's hitting nearly every shot won't be bad for any team
2015-01-26 00:38

he wont fit! look at how Titan is playing.. everything is set for KennyS he goes first everywhere try to openfrag, their entire games is based on his AWP. Now check LDLC style its completely different, sick aimers with very aggressive openings shoxie is an awesome awper same as Happy. They don't need someone who will destroy their winning style.
2015-01-26 00:49
GG LDLC! Both first maps was glorious (especially the second) :) like many other have said, i could enjoy any type of map except cobblestone.. very well awesome tourney overall! And ofc GG NIP, my team no matter what, win or loss :)

NiP played the best CS of the tournament, too bad it had to be decided on Cobblestone. Valve. replace it by Train already pls. Thanks.
2015-01-26 12:09
like train is any good. map with best layout that can be good is tuscan but they dont care
2015-01-26 12:27
Train is not that bad. I did like the previous one more tho, they didn't had to remake it if you ask me. Bothg are better than Cobble. And Season of course, also a better competitive map. Sure, Tuscan is good, still waiting to see it in an operation.
2015-01-26 12:43

NiP suprised me playing really bad on cobblestone. They were strong on it. I didnt know if they had fixed their game with maik. bad positions and maik missed lots of shots
2015-01-26 17:02
how they played best cs ? they got the easier sides in all 3 maps and still got omnislashed on 2 maps
2015-01-26 12:59
The semi vs Fnatic was of a much higher level. That match on Inferno was absolutely crazy. Dust 2 does not have an ez side and Cobble is too random, tactically. Besides that, it's a myth that starting at the CT side is always easier. Some teams prefer to start as T, get some rounds on the board and lock the game down in second half. :)
2015-01-26 13:07
its funny we both know nip wouldve been 2-0'd if ldlc started ct on inferno same story as dhw
2015-01-26 13:09
yeah but LDLC played perfect CS
2015-01-26 16:40
LDLC deserved it, but that last match was a lame anti-climax without any serious tactics and mind games. It was like a matchmaking game almost. So bad that map is still in the pool, while literally everyone hates it.

First of all, congratulations LDLC. Great performances throughout. I have a question regarding cobblestone. What was your thoughts before the game knowing that cobblestone could potentially be the decisive map for the outcome of the tournament? e: typo
2015-01-27 22:43
my thoughts were something like.. who is LDLC?
2015-01-27 23:31
