NiP win DreamHack Masters Malmö

Ninjas in Pyjamas have won DreamHack Masters Malmö and $100,000 as they defeat Natus Vincere 2-0 in the grand finals (16-14 on Dust2 and 16-14 on Cobblestone).

As April's only $250,000 event, DreamHack Masters Malmö has spent the last week delivering plenty of matches, upsets, and rivalries to mull over for the month's to come. The final day has now come and gone and NiP stand as champions after a grueling grand final.

After Natus Vincere advanced to the grand final over an underwhelming Envy side and NiP meanwhile ground out a 2-1 victory over GODSENT, the grand final saw the two teams first face off on Dust2.

Ioann "Edward" Sukhariev kept alive memories of himself as 1.6's pistol-god with a USP quad kill on Na`Vi's CT-side pistolround. The first gunround however gave indications that the Eastern European team were not as clearly marked favourites as had been assumed as NiP picked up the round and the next few T-side rounds as well, powering ahead to a 4-3 score.

Na`Vi began their counterattack and started putting successive rounds on the board, which included an AWP quad kill by the recently injured Ladislav "GuardiaN" Kovács to put the Russian-Ukrainian-Slovak team ahead at 8-4.


Not many would have predicted such a strong run by NiP at the event's outset

The next round saw NiP dedicate themselves to a mix-buy, a gamble which paid off as Adam "friberg" Friberg and Richard "Xizt" Landström picked up Tec9 and Deagle kills to secure the round. Ultimately, the half finished 9-6 in Na`Vi's favour.

Na`Vi surged ahead with a second pistolround win (and thus won both pistols on the map) but a series of P250 kills by NiP on the next round suddenly gave NiP an unexpected round win and the momentum necessary to trump Na`Vi.

NiP began to pull away in rounds, with Xizt picking up a triple kill on the 20th round and Christopher "GeT_RiGhT" Alesund getting a quad kill the next round as the Swedish team demonstrated indomitable defensive set-ups.

With the score at 15-12 for NiP, Sergey "starix" Ischuk tried to bring his team back into the game with a series of T-side wins, but a solid hold by the Ninjas gave them the 30th round on the map and a win on Dust2: 16-14.

Cobblestone saw a very confident NiP offensive explode onto the B-site and a T-side pistolround went the way of the Swedes. Following successful anti-ecos, Na`Vi picked up the first gunround but a series of AK47 entries by GeT_RiGhT on the fifth round put the Swedish team back in the driver's seat with a 4-1 score.

The Swedish team moved all the way up to a 7-3 score on their T-side before Na`Vi awoke from the Eternal Dungeon of Tilt and, with Denis "seized" Kostin leading in a series of multifrags and clutches, it was Na`Vi who finished the half up at 8-7.


Na`Vi were favourites to win their first $250,000 event in CS:GO ever but fell apart in the final

Na`Vi took their T-side pistol afterwards and made it look as if the map were effectively over as they ultimately rocketed ahead to a 13-7 score but NiP seemed determined to make the game a nailbiter and began their own comeback on their CT-side.

With the score at 13-12 for Na`Vi, GeT_RiGhT was placed in a one-versus-two situation and the virtuoso of clutching almost managed to make the round work in his favour but GuardiaN pulled off a quick AWP kill to win the round and keep the team ahead.

The next round became a hard reset for Danylo "Zeus" Teslenko & co. as solid defense on the A-site from friberg put NiP back in command and, following a full eco, the score stood at 14-14.

A B-site hold gave NiP the tournament point which meant Na`Vi had to rely on a mix-buy on the final round of the map but it was to no avail and the Swedish team took the map 16-14 and won the event in front of a homecrowd.

I don't think "dumpstered" is the correct word to use, considering that Na'Vi lost both maps 14-16...

if it's ok to call the winning team 'trash', then I think it is the correct word

People flaming NiP cause failed groupstage in Columbus but that was just bad luck , NiP couldve gone through easily and even compete for the big prize. Nip definetely tier1 team again.

Got blocked on twitter by RLewis for disagreeing with him that NaVi are in a WAY better league than NiP right now minutes before NiP just beat them 2-0.....Ego much.
2016-04-17 22:29
that didn't make sense farmer edit: nvm I understood it
2016-04-17 22:35
Someone stated NaVi are in a way higher level than NiP are right now, he agreed and i disagreed, he said to me about checking stats in the past 6 months, i suggested we check the past 4 months since Pyth has only been playing for the past 4 months (btw they both have a 71% win ratio in the past 4 months) and then literally minutes before NiP won the event he blocks me.
2016-04-17 22:36
Well, if NiP and Navi were forced to play 21 BO3, and I would get a bullet through my skull if I picked the losing team, I'd pick Navi.
2016-04-17 22:44
I too would pick NaVi, i agreed that i think NaVi right now are the better team but disagreed with the wording of "Way higher level".
2016-04-17 22:45
Lmfao as much as I love rlewies he is a bit of an autist he's funny but I don't think he's as good of an analyst as people say he is (unlike God thorin) he's a little biased and you can't be biased as an analyst that's why thorins so good... He hates everyone

no allu was never the problem man Allu is an Awesome Player who is now wasted on a mediocre Finnish Team :/ The Problem was always their Calling. Xizt did what he could but he couldnt play his best and his calling is limited
2016-04-17 22:55
yeah xizt is on fire nowadays, looks like the addition of Threat instead of natu was the key so natu was the problem :'(

Actually natu was not the problem, but he was definitely not the solution. He had to much respect for the players and didn't change much at all.

gg and congrats to nip, i think they totally deserved to win throughout this tournament as they played incredible vs vp and navi. they seem to be coming back which is always massive for a team like nip but ... with all the fanboys .. D:
2016-04-17 22:42
NiP holy shit. They actually won it.
2016-04-17 22:43
NIP actually won something?
2016-04-17 22:43
It's fucking crazy thinking that the last time NiP have won a major lan was ESL One Cologne... that's fucking crazy. It kinda puts their slump into perspective. NiP have always been gods in Sweden, but maybe this will have lit a fire under them. I used to hate NiP, but it's so hard to sustain that hate. NiP are such a fucking storied and amazing team. Good to see them back on top.
2016-04-17 22:43
Great game. Good to see nip winning something again.
2016-04-17 22:44
Pretty funny how it all have turned around, GeT_RiGhT is mostly their entry-fragger as T while friberg have kinda stepped back. And f0rest have more or so taken over GeT_RiGhT's role a bit when it comes to attacking site as T if you look back to how NiP played with fifflaren. Even though f0rest have always been like third man going into a site, but he is like that fourth or fifth very often now :) Still dno what I thinks about it, when you see GT in these clutch-sitatuions that almost is impossible and he almost makes it happen you still wounder if it is the right choice to put GT first. But he is doing a great job at it! GGWP Na'Vi, feel a bit sorry for them.. Been playing so good lately and always falls short.. NiP deserved this though.

Serbia whoa!! 
Yeah i really wondered why gtr is the one always going first,Have they changed their roles?sick entries from get-right though
2016-04-18 00:23
Ye they have. This new lineup with pyth is like GeT_RiGhT first/second man attacking sites most of the times.. He still is a lurker, but when they attack sites he goes in as first/second most of the times, but sometimes he still lurks on the other side :p He switches it up :p

Sweden BenneDoT 
Well they needed someone to help friberg with the entries for a long time and the way GTR sometimes opens up sites (many times with a 2x entry) it's well worth the change. Let's not forget that forest and xizt are very good mid-round and clutch players. It will be exiting to see where pyth will fit in, right now he is doing a good job filling in the gaps etc, but maybe he can develop his game I nip further.
2016-04-18 11:56
Ye, but I would rather see pyth opening up rounds more, he have been very good at it. For example against astralis when NiP got the 5-1 lead as T, pyth opened up every round and when he stopped being entry NiP didn't get a single round as t =D GT is imo their best clutcher just because how he "read" the opponents, only players I can think of that can read like him is flusha and snax. Just like friberg said, there is almost nobody that can think like GT in a clutch-situation, he is mindblowing at that.
2016-04-18 12:12
Gongratz NiP! But Navi is not the first time throughout the tournament showed incredible game to the finals, and the final is something going on with a team.. Sorry for my bad english:)

What Na'Vi and Astralis have in common? both choke at certain points in a tournament... Astralis at semis, Na'Vi at grand finals. The fact that they lost to NiP 2-0 both games being 16:14 just shows how much navi choke... because if in the grands was any other team that was top 5 than navi would just get rolled over. at least NiP are shit enough to make it for a close game. Give me all the hate you want but this is not NiP winning with anything spectacular it was Na'Vi not being able to close out a tournament yet again.
2016-04-17 22:51
thats just.. pure bullshit. Navi won both pistolrounds at d2, and they got outplayed.
2016-04-17 22:55
Na'Vi consistently make it into grand finals and don't win them.. that's the pattern.. they make key mistakes in key rounds and than ti all goes to shit... same with Astralis. On paper both teams should be able to win events, but they can't. you can call it bullshit but I analyze this game and have watched it and played long enough to see when a team just can't do something. Of course it would be great if NiP also brought some consistency and they surely have slowly started climbing up again (that's great). By the way winning a pistol round is not a guaranteed game win its only 6 rounds out of 16 that you have to take ideally not even half of them. Rewatch the matches and see how many times Na'Vi just kept doing terrible descions and feeding themselves to NiP.
2016-04-17 23:03
but.. mistakes happen, and will always happen. NiP made mistakes to, pushes they shouldnt have and so on. I just dont understand why its so hard do accept that NiP was the better team tonight.

Dude don't be salty only because nip won... It's navi's fault that they did the mistakes and even then nip did very much right against a lot of teams and 2 pistols rounds are a very good punishment for a win typical fakeflagger

Dude, they lost fair and square. NiP were the better team today, end of discussion. I think Na'Vi has great potential, but I think their mentality is what's stopping them. It's clear they have issues with controlling emotions. I would not count Guardian in those issues, but I'm fairly sure it affects him.
2016-04-18 00:04

Very gg NIP, i'm glad to see that game by NIP (P.S. Navi supporter) Forest and Get_Right has just insane aims. U are rly worthy. Not like FAVELA, who had most easy opponents->>sucked in VP and Luqiud and got a fluke win. The best game from NIP per last 2 years. It does not hurt bec NIP showed championship game.

NiP didn't win because of the roster change, Pyth didn't have so huge impact. Threat made the difference. Nip's star players get_right and forest played on their old very good level. Xizt also stepped up incredibly in this tournament.

Your subjective opinion doesn't matter. They won with pyth and threat. To be fair, pyth played extremely well against Na'Vi. He was very crucial to their sucess. Whilst most people know it's mainly due to threat, it couldn't be done if pyth didn't fit :)

yup. xizt came up clutch in key rounds throughout the whole tournament. if it wasn't for xizt brillant play, i think godsent would've eliminated NiP 2-0.

2016-04-18 06:30
Xizt was maybe the most important player for NiP that tournament in my opinion. He didn't have the most frags, but I cannot think of a clutch scenario that he failed his team all tournament.

did u saw the match against godsent ? luckly godsent players missed so many clutches and lost so many onpoint duels against NIP if it was fnatic or other high skilled players, nip would have lost cbble and train so easy at least on cbble 14-14 xizt vs 2 godsent players, both of them went into the same place in front of him, one should have stayed behind and pop xizt so easy... that was pure luck for nip :D look at this youtu.be/EzpPFR0QKo4?t=3353
2016-04-18 08:29
I saw both games, I have to agree on the "unexpected" part and on the part where you mention that higher skilled player would probably beat NiP. And probably on the part where THREAT prepared the Na'Vi game very well and the part where GuardiaN was cleary not in top form. But the thing about NiP is that they are a very good example of persistence, they can still be a top 1 team, they don't panic on changing everything, although they went 18 months without winning. And this victory on DreamHack Malmo may very well spice thing up on CS:GO, that is witnessing, yet again, a "shuffle" on the world rankings.

i was rooting for NIP, but felt like if they were playing fnatic, nip would have not win just because olof, flusha, krimz have a better ingame sense.. when to peek, when to go around the enemy.. etc
2016-04-18 09:15
You know what luck is? Luck is the 3rd factor that is unrelated to you and the cause and it can influence the results. So neither you or somebody else have control of this "LUCK". Godsent made mistakes, xizt played super good simple as that. NiP beat 4 great teams Virtus PRO, Astralis, Na'Vi and GODSENT and they deserve the win. Deal with it NiP hater.

If if if, hltv users are the masters of the ancient Technique of If. Out of 9 last matches between NiP and fnatic, NiP have won 4 times. These are cold facts that show how even their matchups are.
2016-04-18 11:15
If your standard for a good team is "wouldn't have worked on Fnatic" why do you watch? Fnatic is far and away the best team right now, so that comparison will fail every signle time.
2016-04-18 17:20
you are retarded. Godsent lost because they made same mistakes as NiP. If NiP didnt make bad moves they would win much easier. It works in two sides, but what russian can know about it
