NiP fend off Renegades in opener

NiP have taken down Renegades in their first qualifier match in Atlanta, 16-9 on Dust2.

The map to be played was Dust2 and while NiP took a very clean pistol round as CT, the Australians answered right back with the feared second round force buy, which meant that Renegades could turn it into a healthy 4-1 lead. The Ninjas then decided to one-up that force buy, as they reversed the momentum with a naked buy of upgraded pistols, pulling three sexy one-deags in the process.

The Swedes equalised the score 4-4 and had great success with retaking the sites, both in a 5v5 and after being faked out of the B-site, Patrik "f0rest" Lindberg coming out of an intense 1v2 clutch defuse, just with a single magazine from his CZ and the killing blow was with the last bullet as well.


New look, same class.

The double AWP setup for NiP was simply too much for the team from down under to break through, let alone hitting enough of their shots. They were not able to claw just a single round back before the half-time, the aforementioned veteran was instrumental again in the 15th round by getting a quad kill and putting his team on an 11-4 lead.

Yaman "yam" Ergenekon and company also seized their CT pistol as well as the first gun round so the space to mount the comeback was being built up, pulling back the deficit to a 9-11 scoreline.

After getting their first T-round Adam "friberg" Friberg was then phenomenal in the following round to clutch out a 1v3 after plant situation, all three Australians running into his AK from short and it the Swedes were now leading 13-9 and cruised home the victory from there to close out 16-9.

Fairly easy game for the swedes this time. Will be more challenging as they rack more wins though.

I wouldn't rule Renegades out, they can shoot. Depends who they play next game and if they can climb up to 1-1, 0-2 and it's gg.
