Na`Vi dominate NiP; to grand final

Natus Vincere join EnVyUs in the DreamHack Open Cluj-Napoca grand final after a dominating performance over NiP (de_train 16-3, de_dust2 16-6).

The second semi-final of NiP and Na`Vi started off on de_trainwith a seven-round streak from the latter off the back of Ladislav "GuardiaN" Kovács and Egor "flamie" Vasilyev, without being too contested in either of them.

Aleksi "allu" Jalli's triple with an AWP was enough to stop the streak, but not enough to prolong their own, as Na`Vi broke their opponent's economy for two rounds in a row for 10-1.

The Finn brought another highlight-worthy action in round 12, and this time NiP were able to take one more in the bag before dropping both remaining for a 3-12 scoreline on the defensive.

At that point both flamie and GuardiaN passed the 20-kill milestone, and when their team picked up the second pistol round as well, they had little to no problems closing map one out confidently 16-3.


Natus Vincere made their first major final with domination

The beginning of map two was nearly a copy paste of de_train, this time with Natus Vincere on the Counter-Terrorist side, as NiP only got four kills together over the course of six rounds.

NiP's first chance at a successful round offered itself in a 3-on-3 situation on a light forcebuy, but it was quickly disposed of by Danylo "Zeus" Teslenko. Finally the Swedish-Finnish side got on the board only to be broke again after another dominating round. 

It took a 10-2 scoreline for NiP to finally use their map two's timeout, and it came to some fruition, but Na`Vi could still be happy to switch over at 11-4.

Christopher "GeT_RiGhT" Alesund's feat in the last seconds saved his team from a nearly-certain loss in the second pistol, but everything fell apart again, credit to three deagle headshots from Na`Vi's side.

A miraculous forcebuy win at 15-5 delayed the inevitable by a round, as Natus Vincere made their first major grand final after six previous attempts.

Rofl, you shit on NiP for being lucky while NaVi got to the grand final by beating CLG twice, losing to EnVyUs, Beating Luminosity who upset Fnatic, and beating NiP who upset TSM. Are you daft?
2015-11-01 17:29
:)
2015-11-01 17:33
+1 sometimes it's better to be lucky than good. lol NV will be a test for them though!
2015-11-01 17:40
can't believe they beat TSM to give us the most embarrassing semi final in a major ever
2015-11-01 17:01
ya its heartbreaking, tsm must be kickin themselves for their worst cs game in their careers.
2015-11-01 17:05
what really is hard to understand is how it wasn't even close, it's not like NiP won by a small margin, they crushed TSM... how TSM gave such a performance in a major really can't explain that
2015-11-01 17:10
Exactly same situation how nip gave this performance against navi. Shit happens to everyone
2015-11-01 17:19
its way more likely to have nip get crushed by any top5 team than tsm gettin crushed by nip tho, its not exactly the same :D
2015-11-01 17:27
Dont start this bullshit about "top 5 teams", cuz NiP is top5. You like it or not, they have sort of woke up.
2015-11-01 17:36
Problem is,navi is not considered a top5 team and they shit on nip big time. Not a Fan of tier and top team Talks tho
2015-11-01 18:14
Look how navi played. They perfectly countered NiP. THis I respect and admire. You cant deny that NiP showed that they are sort of back to decent form.
2015-11-01 18:16
lol nip top 5 :D tsm fnatic envy vp and NAVI are top5, theres no way nip is in top5 in terms on success and skill in 2015. :D

NaVi can any day turn in on either of the other teams in the top6 - they have won plenty of tournaments to prove that, so all this talk about them not being considered top5 isn't worth much.

NiP magic seems to have come to an end. I had bet on EnVyUs' enemy in the grand final before the first semi-final, I'm afraid I'm gonna lose my several bucks, but anyway I won more thanks to TSM losing to NiP. WP Na`Vi, you're one of the tier1 teams now, even if EnVyUs will rape you in the final, but hopefully it will be as close match as possible. But pls, kick Edward finally, his brainless noscopes and missed easy shots costed you many important rounds, I remember when he went for a noscope vs EnVyUs on overpass and failed and Na`Vi lost the match. Edward, if you can't compete, if you're too old or if you have no enough time to practise - then it's time to retire. Although I think the grand final will be a disaster for Na`Vi. They miss too much shots, those sprays are really poor and weak, and nV are well-known for their very cool aim, so EnVyUs will simply overaim Na`Vi. Oh my skins, let's light a candle for them.

Now Thorin is happy that he's prediction was right when he said a month or so ago that even if NiP does go far with the same line up it will only be a fluke once and will never again will they achieve anything after....

2015-11-02 22:44
None in NiP played good. Nobody did their job, it's a shame to see how they can play so good yesterday. The thing that made them win yesterday was the teamwork, they played together and TSM got probably caught offguard because of that. But in this game everyone in NiP was just bad, they was not in the game even. GGWP NaVi! Hope you will make a great final to watch against EnvyUs!
2015-11-01 17:09
How NiP played today is an insult to TSM. Final gonna be awesome tho.
2015-11-01 17:10
Indeed, I am a big NiP fan. But I feel more sorry almost for TSM, because they would have put up a much better fight against Na'Vi and deserve it so much to be in semifinals/final.
2015-11-01 17:14
Im your evil twin than since I like almost every team except NiP, but atleast we can agree at some points. Its all about the matchups. Im suprised by this major,did not expected G2 to go this far, different teams not just the paperform I like this and they say this major is shit.

Listen up, hitler, Some people like to watch tournaments because matches are close and comes down to the wire, and not because certain teams win.

Why the hell are people calling allu bot? He's doing the best out of all nip players *.* poor guy
2015-11-01 17:44
same with pasha threads yesterday, he did some misplays on train but still topfragged hltv is just a hiveminded circlejerk, worse than reddit

You should not really look at stats this game, because no one in NiP did good. allu and f0rest had more kills because they was the one getting kills being left alone when round was over. But I agree, he is not bot allu. He have been one of the players in NiP that have performed the best since he joined. You should never listen to hltv-newbies/twitch_silvers. But this game was just horrible for every player in NiP.
