NiP have defeated G2 2-0 (Cache 16-7, Overpass 22-18) to take the SL i-League StarSeries Season 2 Finals title and the first-place prize of $130,000.

The grand final of SL i-League StarSeries Season 2 Finals started on NiP's Cache, where the Swedes began as Terrorists and clinched a ridiculous pistol round, which saw all 10 players meet in middle.

G2 went on the offensive in the first gunround, but it backfired as they got caught off guard and left the B bombsite empty. NiP kept forcing G2 on ecos, winning all the gunrounds up until it was 9-0.

At that point the French-Belgian squad took a timeout and clinched three rounds in a row, as Richard "shox" Papillon saved a good 1v3 attempt by Patrik "f0rest" Lindberg and Adil "ScreaM" Benrlitom put in five kills over two rounds. 


NiP decimated G2 on the first map

NiP then took a timeout of their own and decided to forcebuy, which eventually went their way when G2 took a gamble and left the A bombsite open. The Swedes switched over at 12-3 and followed it up with a pistol round win, reaching match point.

ScreaM found himself in a 1v2 in the following round and came out on top, as the two players couldn't find the final blow. NiP eventually closed out the map however after three more rounds going the other way, at 16-7.

Overpass followed with G2 taking the first three rounds as Terrorists, all on the B bombsite. Adam "friberg" Friberg then defended the same one with a triple and f0rest picked up four kills in the following round, equalizing the score at 3-3.

A 2v2 situation went the way of shox and company, and so did the following round, as NiP had to eco. Mikail "Maikelele" Bill stepped up to the plate with six kills over the next two rounds, and NiP clawed back to 6-6 and eventually went over to the offence at a comfortable 9-6.


G2 survived four championship points on Overpass, but dropped the fifth

shox put in a triple in the second pistol round, allowing G2 to claw back to 9-8, but they lost the following round as they kept four SMGs. The Frenchmen managed to defend a B attack and evened it out at 10-10. After an anti-eco, ScreaM put in a quad-kill on long and made it 12-11.

However, the Swedish side managed to win a round with only deagles, and slowly retook the lead and reached match point at 15-12. G2 were able to climb back, partially due to a double from Edouard "SmithZz" Dubourdeaux in a crucial moment, and Overpass went to overtime.

The first half of overtime went back and forth, but NiP took the better of it thanks to friberg's huge triple in the third round. The first couple of rounds were exchanged again on the other, as ScreaM and Alexandre "bodyy" Pianaro put in doubles while f0rest closed out a 2v2. friberg put in another huge triple in the last round, but G2 clawed back into the second overtime.

In the second it was all NiP however, coming out on top of crucial situations as CT, grabbing all three rounds and then closing out a 2v1 on the B bombsite as Terrorists, taking the championship at 22-18.

I think Shox performance means that this really should be one of the rare (perhaps even first time) occasions that a player who wasn't in the winning team gets the MVP. He definitely out performed all members of NiP over the course of the tournament, with only get_right really coming close.

Shox had1.25 vs 1.23 rating compare to f0rest for the entire tournament , they have very close stats but his team lost, so I don't think there any reson should give him mvp.
2016-09-12 01:47
F0rest was way better than gtr this tourney and especially in the final.

In terms of data, yes. But I think gtr did his lurker role really well. At least, better than early tournaments. Oppoenet always needed to be careful of gtr.

Yea but get rights CT side was not as impressive as f0rests. At least from what I remember.

And that's why you will never be first, you just don't have the hunger for it. The moment you are pre-preparing hltv comments and ctrl+c them and constantly refreshing htlv, that's when you will be ready for first. I wish you luck

G2 so far ahead in skill? LOL did you even watch the game? Everyone on NiP stepped up massively. This is just another one of your dumb posts, like: "NiP is an online team" "friberg once again has 0 impact in lan games" NiP beat GODSENT, Astralis, Cloud9 and G2 on LAN. Friberg absolutely rekt G2 on both Cache and Overpass, not just topfragging on Cache and second-topfragging on Overpass, but having huge impact.

GGWP! f0rest is my MVP for the final. Felt like everyone did their job in NiP, maybe GT slacking a bit sometimes but he have his illness and he have been in a lot of pain because of that. Even with GeT_RiGhT having his stomach illness with a lot of pain, they still win :) Let's hope Maikelele gets a spot in NiP, he have had a great tournament.

2016-09-11 21:23
How to lose to a team that has a stand-in? Ask G2 xD Now Energy~ is coming here to tell me how strong G2 were, forcing me to repeat it once again - they struggled even against nV that had a stand-in xD No more "if's", G2 lost two of their strongest maps to NiP with a stand-in.
2016-09-11 21:23
It's different when the stand'in top frag or at least 2nd top fragger on most games, anyway they played like shit and nothing compared to their previous form. Hope they can bounce back
2016-09-11 21:56
For a team to work properly it's needed to spend really much time together, even several weeks isn't enough to make things work properly. It may be enough to defeat some tier2 team, but the majority of hltv users regard G2 as a tier1 team, meaning they should cope with NiP having a stand-in.
2016-09-11 21:59
That's only logical because most stand-in always bottom frag in their first games vs tier1 teams but that's not the case here, let's not overthink this G2 played shit so gg NIP

2016-09-11 21:27
Noone can say he isn't top level, didn't make mistakes and some epic plays, the 4K from optimus when site was virtually assured for G2 was just stellar
2016-09-11 21:30
Indeed, that play was outstanding. During that round, when G2 surrounded him in the site, I just had that gut feeling that he would do something spectacular.
2016-09-12 20:06
nahh let's be honest, you never. I was watching it tense asf and when i seen Maikelelelelelel just reeling in those kills i was literally thinking "-pyth +maikelele". The play was outstanding, but you didn't expect it xD What's good about Maikelele is it gives the team an explosive factor. Maiekelele can just push something, he is a little like JW, gives the team an explosive player.
2016-09-12 23:05
Yea, yea, yea! I assure you that my gut feeling was present during that crucial round. Good comparison, but whateve

+They didn't even drop a Map !!! That Overpass was nail biting. I cheered for NiP but i thought: „Well this game is so amazing, let the best team win"
