f0rest: "I'll come back [to form]"

Striker
June 15th, 2015 01:17

Patrik "f0rest" Lindberg talked to us after NiP's victory over dignitas, securing them a spot in the DreamHack Open Summer 2015 playoffs.

NiP's initial match of the day saw them defeating dignitas quite comfortably on de_mirage, but afterwards they couldn't prevail over Natus Vincere on de_cbble and had to go through dignitas again, that time on de_cache.

We caught up with Patrik "f0rest" Lindberg to get his two cents on the matter, including his form of late, NiP's map pool and Joona "natu" Leppänen's improvement inside his role.

We also have an interview with Björn "THREAT" Pers lined up for tomorrow about his new FACEIT job, how Acer started and why he quit the team.

yeah true but I think he is in another level
2015-06-15 02:05
+1 He doesn't have that weird swenglish accent
2015-06-15 04:37
I'm never cheering for NiP/SK in 1.6 but I have biggest respect for f0rest, this is how player need to behave in game and out of the game. Always positive, respect opponent, always shake hands and watch people in eyes with smile even if he losing the game, calm, always doing his job.....maybe currently is not in the best form but definitely greatest player
2015-06-15 01:49
You make me want to believe! We just have to belieeeeeeeeeeeeeeve!!!!!!!
2015-06-15 02:00
no one cares
2015-06-15 02:13
:(
2015-06-15 02:25
f0rest still top2 player in nip with bad form if they back to your form no one can beat nip
2015-06-15 02:22
f0rest top1 since CS

2015-06-15 02:24
f0rest bad form is still impressive, but he is still the best player in the history of Counter Strike. esportsearnings.com/games/162-counter-st.. esportsearnings.com/games/245-counter-st.. stats never lie. he is still top3 overall in stats @cs1.6 and @cs:go top1 prize pool both games, top3 stats in both games too. anyone that isn't a fanboy knows he is THE legend of our game, but still... give us your best almighty f0rest!
2015-06-15 02:43
Meh.. Neo was the best in 1.6 anyway
2015-06-15 03:11
Neo more consistent F0rest higher peak But talking major achievement wise Neo is better compared to f0rest
2015-06-15 04:39
f0rest won more money in cs 1.6 then neo :(

for me f0rest was the most fun to watch when "crouch hopping" using ctrl was prevalent in 1.6. His movement just seemed to be a notch above the rest.

there was ZET, who actually played kinda same..and he was anti-f0rest :) f0rest once said, that the hates to play against zet, because zet has amzing movements :)
2015-06-16 23:16
I love the faces f0rest makes when the camera is on him during matches xD
2015-06-15 02:58
Maybe he can be back, but the never the same beast as he was in 1.6 :< i miss him and neo from old times <3

2015-06-15 04:01
One of the best personalities in pro scene
2015-06-15 04:22
when f0rest isnt good, he is a beast. when f0rest is good, he is a LEGEND
2015-06-15 04:26
He's kinda the Armin van Buuren or Tiesto of CS. I'm sure he will come back. A great professional player and always very respectful. Good luck buddy!
2015-06-15 04:27
hope all the best f0rest
2015-06-15 04:37

We all hope he will, but will he really?
2015-06-15 05:46
hes been saying that for a while now, but doubt he dedicates the same amount of time to cs as he used to, as opposed to the youngsters like krimz/olof.
2015-06-15 09:08
maybe telling his family,I'll come back after match against fnatic lol
2015-06-15 08:25

2015-06-15 09:43
seems like NIP as a whole was offended by the analyst desk...forest seems like 1 of the nicest guys around. I felt bad for him when striker said "youve have a few bad tournaments lately", u can tell forest felt bad/ashamed
