NiP pass MVP Project at StarSeries
In the last match of the 0-1 pool at StarSeries, NiP comfortably passed MVP Project 16-9 on Cobblestone.
Starting on the T side on Cobblestone, NiP ran a quick A strat that gave them the first three rounds without much trouble.
The slow approach helped NiP break the streak and get several rounds on the board, including one in which Patrik "f0rest" Lindberg clutched a 1v3, for an 8-5 lead. The remaining two rounds went the Koreans' way, however, as Soon-Woo "Argency" Kwon delayed the bomb plant long enough for the time to run out and HSK put up a triple at the end of the half.
NiP secure Cobblestone despite an unexpectedly tough T side
The next round went the way of Hyun-Pyo "XigN" Lee and company with Jung-Hyeon "rindA" Jeon landing three kills, but their economy was broken once the Swedes got the next round. With that, NiP didn't take long to close out the match at 16-9.
PotM: NiP's recent addition, William "draken" Sundin, contributed in 84% of rounds with a total of 26 kills (12 with the AWP), which included six openers. He also finished the match with the highest ADR (99) and rating (1.48).
