FlipSid3 upset NiP; go on to semis

FlipSid3 go on to the semi-finals of ESWC after causing a huge upset to NiP 2-1 (de_inferno 1-16, de_mirage 16-10, de_overpass 16-12) despite having a stand-in.

NiP started off as Counter-Terrorists on de_inferno and with a good read on the pistol round went on to pick up a couple more off of it due to Andrey "B1ad3" Gorodenskiy's mistimed bomb plant in a favorable 2-on-2 situation in the following forcebuy.

One more opening showed up for the Georgi "WorldEdit" Yaskin-less team in the first gunround, but Aleksi "allu" Jalli turned it around with four kills in a 2-on-5 to make it 5-0. More time issues on FlipSid3's part resulted in Adam "friberg" Friberg's lonesome triple on B.

The first round offered itself to FlipSid3 at 10-0 and this time around they were able to close it on the B bombsite, but NiP continued to dominate the half with allu on a rampage (24-4-5 score at halftime). FlipSid3 then couldn't turn a favorable situation in a second pistol-round win and NiP went on to close map one at 16-1.


allu tore FlipSid3 apart on de_inferno

With a Counter-Terrorist pistol round in the bag, FlipSid3 went on to get a flying 6-0 start with comfortable defences apart from a close 1-on-1 by B1ad3. A couple of A executes by the Swedes were then split evenly, although NiP were broke and the scoreline was sitting at 1-8.

NiP tried to quicken up the pace and got one round with a fast B split, but another takeover attempt was denied by Yegor "markeloff" Markelov's smoke double in a 2-on-2 for FlipSid3 to get back on the horse and take the half to a 13-2 score with B1ad3 on top of the scoreboard.

Christopher "GeT_RiGhT" Alesund's triple was not enough for NiP to earn a good enough chance to come back from the deficit and it seemed like it would be over soon, but the Swedes managed to win the following forcebuy.

A bomb plant two rounds afterwards in a forcebuy helped FlipSid3 get to 11 map points just for NiP to break them again for 15-6. A miraculous 2-on-3 retake scenario worked out for the Swedish side and a good read on their part made it 10-15, but FlipSid3 managed to close it out in the next round thanks to a perfect A push.

FlipSid3 got a great start on de_overpass yet again, this time starting as Terrorists, as they stormed onto a 5-0 lead before Patrik "f0rest" Lindberg's AWP quad-kill got NiP on the scoreboard.


NiP are leaving the competition with their heads down

NiP couldn't capitalize on a positional advantage afterwards and broke their economy at 1-7, but markeloff's team-kill in a 2-on-2 lost FlipSid3 the following anti-eco. The Swedish economy got broken once again as Richard "Xizt" Landström's team had to double eco. A stack on the B bombsite in the second one wrecked FlipSid3 for 3-9, and NiP managed to hold on for both remaining rounds in the half for a 6-9 scoreline. 

A pistol and both anti-ecos went in favor of the mostly-Ukrainian roster, and the following quick B pushes were split evenly and NiP had to save yet again, while FlipSid3 were happy to take the 14th round to NiP's seven.

NiP then won an absolute must-win round and the following anti-eco, but allu's 4:3 resolution settings then allowed Vladyslav "bondik" Nechyporchuk to sneak past him on A long and get two kills from behind for six match points. A quick B strat yet again, coupled with a forcebuy on FlipSid3's part, helped NiP lower the deficit to three. Just a round after though FlipSid3 survived a scary 1-on-3 by friberg, started celebrating and defused in the last second.

I respect nip but not their fans, nip are shit now deal with it.
2015-07-12 01:33
theres no fanboying here, I honestly think they are not playing up to the level they can because of bad tactical approach which was Natu's one job. You heard b1ad3 himself say their T side on mirage was predictable and overall bad, they really need to change their style around I think.
2015-07-12 01:37
NiP is know to run default strats back from their early days of CSGO, but since they had these godlike players like Get_right and forest who could win NiP games alone, now forest isn't mad-fragging every game and we got much better teams and players than back in the day.
2015-07-12 11:07
im a fan and i dont want to admit it but i will anyways. that was some sloppy ass shit mistakes and jsut worthless gaming. i tihnk its time to sit down at a tabe and ahve some real talk
2015-07-12 03:23
how much
2015-07-12 12:33
i dont play cs, got 7 hours the last month and all i got in my inventory is 1€. I lost my respect for nip as a good team.
2015-07-12 16:26
yea ofc its the coach's fault stupid fankid
2015-07-12 02:47
Ok, let's look at it from a different angle. What exactly are the points on which a coach should be evaluated? What areas of failure would indicate that a coach is failing at his job and should be removed? PS : I have no idea if its the players' fault or Natu's fault that NiP are doing shit right now. I'm just asking questions.

2015-07-12 01:25
Because they don't need to remove them they know what's best, guarantee NIP won't become better with new players, plus there's barely anyone available
2015-07-12 02:35
fanboy in denial? a roster swap is unavoidable at this point
2015-07-12 02:49
twist, schneider are both avaible, dennis was avaible but ofc NiP doesn't make change in the right time (like not adding olofm/Krimz last year) They definetly should make a change, adding Maikelele/allu worked out well for them. losing to flipside isn't exactly what's best for NiP

schneider played until olof and krimz joined and that didn't happen in 2013. tbh forest, xizt and friberg are the ones stuck in 2013.

dude, you talking complete bullshit "tbh forest, xizt and friberg are the ones stuck in 2013." "that's why they won cologne'14?" "oh they won a tournament 1 year ago, means that they should keep the same roster" you have some serious problem with autism edt. DHW'14 #final Gfinity Summer Masters I #final this is not bad results in last 6 monthes
2015-07-12 11:33
nah, you do if you think Nip will win anything. I don't understand your problem. I just argued that f0rest xizt and friberg aren't performing for NiP to have any meaningful results, in 2013 f0rest was a top3 player but now isn't even top20, their loose style worked back then, but doesn't now because they can't just outfrag any team and friberg is in a big slump. yes, they did win in cologne last year, but every player on NiP had to play their A-game to do that. I don't think they can do that again nt "xy" [x] check autism [x] check NiP don't need to change players [x] check

2015-07-12 16:46
communication is not problem, but their playstyle is a way too slow for guys like s1mple, they can't adapt new style and keep the same all time f0rest should retire soon, not because he's bad really but he is inconsistent and everybody know how he plays, meanwhile friberg is still slumping allu is the calm player NiP wanted and does his job (except the overpass he never plays well), but the problem is that they all are too calm in playstyle

they did it before... f3 recently won 2:0 over navi, not the last time they met, but the time before that... navi are better i find as they paly with the full roster, but f3 do have a chance to win it, not see why not.... if they hae the same aim they had vs nip then anything is possible, but ya, to be honest, id still favor navi in that match up to be honest, but we'll see.... would not reccomend betting on f3 vs navi

2015-07-12 01:34
Elaborate, unless you're hinting at the fact that he is contracted to Kinguin :)
2015-07-12 01:40
remove natu it is acceptable .. but remove allu ..? he is one of the best awps in the world and he's carrying them all the way .. are you fuckin stupid ... he had bad game on overpass and with aspect ratio couldnt see bondik in long .. but that it is .. allu is one of the best players so if they remove allu will be like this : NiP RiP too many changes goes for nothing good... if they have to remove someone i think that should be Xist.
2015-07-12 01:34
he's not one of the best awp's out there, not even close. And he's totally shit with all other weapons, + the fact that he causes the switch from swe to eng ingame(which is more problematic than u think). He's just not any good for the team, and natu? wtf is up with him.
2015-07-12 01:45
allu is good fragger but he doesent have any impact on wins,just meaningless kills,unless they adapt and work around him

GGWP f3, but NiP you really let overpass slip through veto? The map you ALWAYS veto otherwise? Maybe should listen to thorin about your pickings in veto. Really sad to see allu not playing like he did on inferno on last map, GeT_RiGhT was good through it all. f0rest was good on last map.

salty comments, salty comments everywhere. I don't care if Allu leaves/gets kicked from NiP. Roster change will not change anything.
2015-07-12 01:41
stats are added in the match page hltv.org/match/2296961-nip-flipsid3-eswc.. s1mple & markeloff led the stats board, Hiko palyed a big role none the less though...
2015-07-12 01:41
-friberg
2015-07-12 01:44
NIP needs a TOP awp player, something like s1mple or skadoodle. Also change friberg to someone better would be an option, but allu must go for sure. Im wondering why cant they see this... its so obvious.
2015-07-12 01:45
finally someone who gets it! +1!
2015-07-12 01:50
mate. they should take 5th rifler. no awp. allu is indeed top awper. are u gold?
2015-07-12 02:16
upsets only happens in groupstage striker, not in quarter finals.teams don't get to play quarter-finals by luck. next: x team upsets navi in final. lol
2015-07-12 01:46
So, your logic is that all playoff teams are more or less on the same level and no one is an underdog?
2015-07-12 02:19
if a team reaches this quarter-finals, it'snot because of luck.Flipsid3 managed to beat TSM in overpass in faceit. so Itsnot surprise they managed to beat tier2 NiP (who only managed to win 1 event against Team Acer this year) as well. Flipsid3 came this quarter-finals by facing harder teams than nip has faced.(Cloud9,KeyD) So it'snot a surprise.
2015-07-12 13:57
What you've just done is take one aspect in consideration and ignore every other.
2015-07-12 14:00
I'm ignoring 2013,2014 and talking about 2015 which is a time to people can see real competition.
2015-07-12 14:18
If renegades beats navi in a Bo3,its called an upset. FLipside beating NIP is also an upset. Dude please

It doesnt make you better or worse, but lacks of view range could lead to situation like it was with allu, people say its just preference but 16:9 is way more useful

2015-07-12 16:53
Well that's humiliating to lose when they have that confusion on coms on the flipside side Nip are in a pathetic state where people how caught up and surpassed their aim which they heavily relied upon in the past. Their ingame leader / start caller is on of the worst on the scene and it shows when they try to set up or adjust to mid round. natu brings nothing to the table /mascot Nip need to change players if they want to get back to winning anything

2015-07-12 02:25
Why is everyone so quick to blame allu? Friberg and forest have been the main ones struggling. And don't say forest did good one map. I'm talking consistency not one good map out of 5.
2015-07-12 02:10
consistency? check the player stats, u dumbass nigga, f0rest has rating of 1.08 in 2015, which is the second best within the nip players.
2015-07-12 03:38
allu needs to go cus they need some one who can speak swedish
2015-07-12 16:54
Why do you say "F3 with a stand-in". Hiko is so much better than WorldEdit, if F3 had full line up, NiP would have stomped in 2 maps.
2015-07-12 02:15
Because he is a stand-in, he didn't even do good compared to the other players. They let him to whatever he wanted and he didn't frag more than his teammates. He also caused a ton of comm. issues, everything had to be translated for him, which made them lose against C9 on Cache for example.

When NiP used to get out of the early group stages they had only one excuse that BO1 should be removed. Now what ! It is BO3 lads, why cant you prove yourself who you are. Now they gonna post a shit on facebook and twitter that We will show them who we are. Who we are my ass !!!! Disband please
2015-07-12 02:26
If Flipside got Dosia in Worldedit or Markeloff place they would probably be a top contender.
2015-07-12 02:30
They don't deserve for rekt.. Ez event for NIP they said
2015-07-12 02:30
fuckin rekt xd
2015-07-12 02:33
Holy shit they need to get rid of xizt. I dont believe the whole kick friberg/allu bullshit. No one mentions forest who has played just as bad if not worse, and xizt is waaaay too predictable, I feel like they do have the talent even if there in a little bit of a slump, but xizt is not putting his team in a position to succeed. I wish fifflaren would have stayed in nip and instead had them kick xizt, at least fifflaren had actual strats and didnt just do pug tactics and default set ups every round.
2015-07-12 02:37
NIP top 3 they said. NIP will win this event easy they said. EVEN EASY GROUP Stage cant help NIP lol. RIP NiP and their fangays.
2015-07-12 02:38
xizt is an idiot, and friberg only goes for body shots. He starts his spray at the guy's chest and lets the recoil ride up to head level. He cant afford to waste his first 3 bullets like that.
2015-07-12 02:57
Well, Rip NiP

bring back fifflaren. Not trolling at all, at least he could out-IGL a team that doesn't even speak the same languauge It's time to stop regarding friiberg and f0rest as madfraggers

2015-07-12 10:07
hltv.org/?pageid=173&playerid=39&statsfi.. Sats for past three months. Following the forum and the community opinions the past three months, I feel the one that has gotten most criticism is friberg and f0rest. The latter right after a slump, and friberg has been heavlily attacked by a not too unfamiliar fin, crushing the myth of him being a great entryfragger. Now he is bottomfragging, allu has done okei, but not great. He is fragging worse than xizt, a player that is supposed to call the strats at this point. Don't know who they should replace, that should be up to NiP, but twist sure do look tempting to add to the lineup. The problem with replacing friberg is that someone else have to take on the much underestimated and equally hard task of entryfragging (it's not the easiest role in Counter-Strike). The problem if replacing allu is that neither twist or f0rest are any dedicated awpers. Although it eliminates any possible difficulties with comms as the team can go back to 100 % swedish. I don't see the logic behind replacing xizt as he his doing well individually in addition to taking sole responsibility for calling strats, and we all know that the alternative is GeT_RiGhT calling, not an optimal one. GL NiP, get out of the slump.

As much as I love NiP and it's players and overall the whole team are extremely awesome as inviduals. Thou, remember one thing, and I dont mean bad anything to NiP, they are aware of it themselvs, they havent came 1st place a single time since they added allu or 2nd or even 3rd, and everyone blamed on Fifflaren back then, but look thru and explore. As much as I love allu as a player personally, it suprises me how many people are hating on him despite the fact he has positive stats 85% of NiP's games.

Dear god this is just embarassing at this point. Can you just fucking -friberg -xizt and put in some new motivated talent? It's not that friberg and xizt are bad but the team desperately needs someone that can uplift their spirit and give them motivation. At least switch 1 of them.
