Na`Vi to Cologne playoffs over NiP

Natus Vincere secured a playoff spot at ELS One Cologne after outlasting NiP on Cobblestone (16-12).

Natus Vincere and Ninjas in Pyjamas met in the third match of the second day in Cologne to determine the second quarter-finalist. Cobblestone was chosen after the veto phase and the Ninjas started on the T-side.

The double entry-kill by Christopher "⁠GeT_RiGhT⁠" Alesund gave the first round of the match to Ninjas in Pyjamas but Natus Vincere responded with both Ioann "⁠Edward⁠" Sukhariev and Danylo "⁠Zeus⁠" Teslenko picking up double-kills.


Edward & company advance to the playoffs

Egor "⁠flamie⁠" Vasilyev's triple kill stopped the force buy of the Ninjas and Natus Vincere made it 3-1 after winning the anti-eco. Ninjas in Pyjamas took back the lead thanks to GeT_RiGhT's entry kills. When the CIS team were trailing 3-7, they called for a timeout.Natus Vincere reacted after losing another round but were behing 6-9 at halftime.

The first two rounds of the first half got repeated in the second one as Ninjas in Pyjamas grabbed the pistol round but Natus Vincere answered with three rounds to trail 9-10.

The CIS team tied it at 10-10 with a weapon round win and Denis "⁠seized⁠" Kostin's 1vs2 clutch tied the game again, this time at 12-12. Natus Vincere's end game performance earned them the 16-12 victory as they retained their Legend status.

F*ck you Threat !! You can't even make NIP play as a team in 2nd round of each half after winning pistol. You should be making strict instructions to clear close corners with Nades, Molotovs and Flashes and as a group. !!!

Threat is doing fine. He should NOT make such detailed orders like " clear close corners with Nades, Molotovs and Flashes and as a group. !!!" are you nuts? Why the fuck would he do that? NiP are perfectly capable of doing and taking those calls themselves. Threat may say "more nades" or something like that but micromanaging them through every corner would be idiotic if not impossible.

Are you an idiot? Why do you think NiP lost ? Pistol wins sud give u 6-0 idiot. Threat is the coach n little bit ingame leader. He is supposed to be strict. If he can't direct his team then he doesn't deserve to be the leader. He sud have talked to the team after ECS wer GTR played alone no backup no team work and lost bcoz of dat. If u use nades flashes mol etc. at close corner wer pistol are deadly ur chances of winning increases... Idiot !! Learn how to play or atleast watch...dumb ass...

U are a fucking salty 13 y.o . Kiddo that lost your 4 cents skin. And btw Threat is great as a coach. Nip are a top team and they should know what to do in anti-eco. The all team watch demos, so it isnt just the coach to watch them. So it isnt his fault.
2016-07-06 15:01
nip were considered the best anti-eco team before this match. threat turned this team around in a good way, the problem is that the players still have to do it in game, he cant do it for them. if you know one thing about cs go pros, a lot of them are divas and nip was famous for being uncoachable before threat joined. dont be rude mate, hes probably the best coach with starix
2016-07-06 15:12
being strict is not the same as micromanaging your team u dumb retarded silver. no one has ever done that in CS for a reason and it will remain so.
