NiP beat Selfless for 4-2 record
Ninjas in Pyjamas have picked up two more points in ELEAGUE after defeating Selfless Gaming twice (16-9 on Cobblestone, 16-12 on Cache).
The second match of the day in ELEAGUE featured Ninjas in Pyjamas, looking to get back on track after a double loss to G2 on Tuesday, and Selfless Gaming, who had been defeated twice by the Frenchmen in their first match in Atlanta.
Cobblestone was the first map played, and here Selfless, who played on the CT side first, picked up the pistol round and the following anti-ecos to start off the game with a 3-0 lead.
NiP then put together a string of three rounds together to level the score, but Selfless hit back before things got out of hand and took two rounds in a row, powered by some key AWP kills from Skyler "Relyks" Weaver.

The game was starting to look like it was not going Selfless' way, but Richard "Xizt" Landström stepped up to the mark and helped his team to take a 9-5 lead with two separate trios of kills. The final round of the half went to Selfless, who finished with six rounds on the board.
The second half began with Selfless winning the first three rounds to level it up at 9-9. But once NiP bought up, the landscape of the game changed dramatically, with the Swedish team picking up seven rounds in a row to lock down the map 16-9.

The next map was Cache, where Selfless got out to a 6-1 lead following a tremendous start on the CT side. NiP then went on six-round streak to overturn the deficit, but the North American side still took the final two rounds to secure a narrow 8-7 half-time lead.
Selfless further added to their tally by picking up the first three rounds as Terrorists. Down 7-11, NiP had little room for errors, and they went on a great run, winning eight of the following nine rounds to secure a 16-12 victory and go 4-2 in Atlanta.
