G2 decimate NiP in debut

G2 decimated NiP 16-6 on Inferno in the seventh match of the first day at SL i-League StarSeries Season 3 Finals.

NiP and G2 locked horns on Inferno in the seventh match of the Swiss group stage's first round, in both teams' debut at SL i-League StarSeries Season 3 Finals.

Clinching the pistol round as CT by picking off NiP one by one, G2 quickly racked up money for the double AWP setup in the fourth round.

The two big greens in the hands of Richard "shox" Papillon and Kenny "kennyS" Schrub allowed the Frenchmen to pick up opening kills all over the map time and time again, as they got up to 8-0 before the Swedes could come up with a response.


The shox-kennyS double AWP setup paid dividends on Inferno

G2 quickly retook control after conceding two out of the next three rounds and finished the half with a dominant 13-2 scoreline, leaving NiP with next to no room for error.

Richard "Xizt" Landström threw NiP a lifeline with a triple in the next pistol round that gave them two more on the back of it, but a Tec9 A execute from G2 put the Swedes back in the water to drown. With that, Nathan "NBK-" Schmitt and company clinched the last two rounds as shox finished it off with a 1v2 clutch at 16-6.

PotM: Mainly holding the AWP, Kenny "kennyS" Schrub excelled throughout the encounter with four opening kills as well as seven multi-kills, finishing the match with a 19-11 score and a 1.37 rating.

draken isn't the problem, G2 simply owned them and the core of NiP is too old

2017-04-04 20:13
what are those...
2017-04-04 20:14
NiP made a terrible decision trying to get a new awper. They should have made f0rest designated awp from the start and kept pyth for his rifle power. If they wanted to replace someone, it should have been friberg, their worst rifler (obviously Xizt is bad too, but as far as I know he's their IGL and tactics guy). This bodes well for G2, but they will have to maintain a certain level of consistency. Obviously they have the talent to contend for the number one spot, so we'll see if they can.
2017-04-04 20:14
LOL, f0rest is insane rifler, why do u kill his skills with fucking AWP?
2017-04-04 20:17
because otherwise they will have no good awper. He's a really good awper in case you somehow didn't know that.
