NiP top group A, Titan advance

NiP defeated dignitas for the top spot in group A 2-1 (de_cache 16-4, de_mirage 9-16, de_inferno 16-9), while Titan comfortably advanced over SK in the lower bracket 2-0 (de_overpass 16-5, de_cache 16-13).

In the match of winners, dignitas took on NiP for the first place in group A and the series started on the latter's pick, de_cache. With a very strong CT half in the bag, NiP stormed onto a 1-0 series advantage following a 16-4 scoreline.

de_mirage followed and there dignitas started off with a 5-0 lead as Terrorists before NiP started grinding rounds together, but it still wasn't enough as the Danes switched over to the favored side with a 10-5 lead.


NiP earned the first spot in the playoffs

The second pistol round going in the favor of Mathias "MSL" Lauridsen's team solidified the conditions for a victory, and after a couple of rounds going NiP's way, dignitas closed it out at 16-9.

de_inferno was the decider and there Aleksi "allu" Jalli stepped up from his poor performance on map two, and with that, NiP were able to capitalize on a 9-6 Terrorist half to win 16-9 and 2-1 overall for the top spot in group A.

The losers' match was to be decided between SK and Titan, who have disappointed to put up big numbers opposing dignitas yesterday. Today though, Kenny "kennyS" Schrub seemed more like his usual self as he helped his team win de_overpass 16-5 with a 28-11 score (2.03 rating).

de_cache ended up being a tougher challenge for the French-Belgian-Swiss lineup, since SK scored an impressive 11-4 Terrorist half, but Titan replied with a one-round stronger one and advanced to the second place decider with dignitas.
