pyth: "Cache got decided early"

Jacob "pyth" Mourujärvi gave us an interview about NiP's affair with Cloud9, being able to reset after the beating they took on Cobblestone, the round restart on Cache, and the strengths of the SG553.

NiP secured themselves a place in the quarter-finals with a 2-1 win over Cloud9 in Group C's decider, in which the Swedes lost Cobblestone 2-16 before clinching Train comfortably and closing the series on Cache.


pyth doesn't believe the restarted round had much of an effect on the match

We sat down with Jacob "pyth" Mourujärvi to talk about the best-of-three, especially what made them reset after losing Cobblestone in such a manner, as well as him using the SG553. He also touched on the round on Cache, where Cloud9 had a 3v1 advantage, which got replayed due to the server shutting down.

Losing Cobblestone 2-16, what do you think helped you reset and come back to win the next two?

I think it was our attitude after the game. We knew we were going to beat them and we just had the mental strength to be able to come back on Train. I think we had a lot of stupid rounds on Cobble that we shouldn't have lost, I think they also read us pretty well, we just ran into their molotovs. We played really bad, we talked after the game and we just had a mindset that we're gonna reset and just play our game and do whatever we practiced.

Disregarding the restart that happened on Cache, what were the keys to win the decider, which ended up being quite close?

I don't think [the restarted round] was a key round, I think the game got decided early as CT, where we got the momentum and got like seven rounds in a row, or eight rounds in a row. And then we won like six rounds in a row as T, so I don't think that round mattered that much, because I think we would've played differently on T side. We kinda choked in the end, but we came back and managed to win by some clutch plays.

I noticed you used the SG553 in a couple of rounds, can you tell me the reasoning behind that, the strengths the weapon has?

I think it's a really good gun, but every time I buy it, I always get flamed by teammates so every time I buy it, I say it's like a misbuy (laughs). But I really wanna use the gun, it's a really good gun. I just have to practice it more and will use it more.

Do you think it's situational, does it have its limits?

Yeah, I think it's very situational, on open maps for example, if you go out yard with the Krieg, it's really good. I don't think it's a really good gun for entry-fragging, if you run in first, but it's really good when you're like sneaky with it, play it more like an AWP, like a trade-fragger. It can be a good gun, but it depends on the situations.

PJsalt. BMI 19 acting all high and mighty :) I've never met a scrawny guy acting IRL as they do on the web :) I'm probably about the friendliest guy you can find, but since I gained 30Kg no one even opens their mouth to be the slightest cocky, be they superbly trained or not. I am not. We "tubbies" does not have any issues succeeding in life. With slight power (doesn't matter much, slight arrogance, and a decent self-esteem) Weight doesn't matter when it comes to attracting the opposite sex :) It's incredibly easy. Women mainly go for impressions and feelings. Those are easy to manipulate :)

Well said! This whole fitness frenzy is a gimmick and will be over soon. A little meat on the bones shows people that you've been eating. In some cultures some extra weight is sought after. That Tony Soprano type body is perfection, people can mock you and call you fat but they would never have the balls to do it face to face with the risk of getting smashed to pieces regardless of being a fitness faggot

American, but still +1. People will find a way to complain about cheating and hacking with every match. With the round restart, it basically gifted them something to bitch about.

And better 1st bullet accuracy. But tbh on the long run If you die often with it i'll have an heavy toll on your economy. Imo the reward is not worth the risk.
2017-02-18 12:15
Yeah i usually buy it if were up like 10-2. It's a pain in the ass to lose it to the cts as well.
2017-02-18 17:18
I love the sg553 and have been using it instead of AK almost my entire playing time (like 90% sg553, sometimes would rather go w/o a smoke or helmet for it instead of getting AK), just only recently i've been using the AK a bit more and now it's like 65-35 in favor of AK, the scope can be both useful and a burden if the timing is off and sometimes it'll give ur position away. Personally I think sg553 has the edge on mid-long range spray and taps, AK gets u a bit better movespeed and is better for entry i guess.

Head armour is important on T side imo
