NiP shut down Virtus.pro

NiP shut down Virtus.pro 16-5 on Nuke in the 1-1 pool of teams, leaving the Poles with just one life left in the group stage.

Virtus.pro started their T side with a ramp attack, which NiP allowed to reach the lower bombsite and then defused the bomb in a well-placed smoke while the fight was unraveling.

The Swedes got up to 2-0 before getting picked off one by one with P250's and Glocks and NEO clutched in a 1v4 afterplant situation later on, but from a force victory at 4-2, NiP started racking up rounds.


NiP inflict another tough loss on Virtus.pro

VP couldn't get past the defenses for nearly the entire remainder of the half, getting forced to eco over and over and ending with only four rounds on the T side, in one of which Janusz "Snax" Pogorzelski added another clutch.

The following pistol round went NiP's way comfortably after doubles from William "draken" Sundin and Adam "friberg" Friberg, climbing to a dominating 14-4 lead. By that time it was nearly all she wrote for Virtus.pro, who managed to delay for one round, in which Filip "NEO" Kubski completed a 1v3 clutch,  but soon after lost two in a row as NiP advanced to the 2-1 pool of teams at 16-5.

PotM: With a staggering 31-11 score in just 21 rounds, 135 ADR, and 2.28 rating, Richard "Xizt" Landström was the best player on the server in NiP's one-sided victory against the Polish side.

2017-04-06 19:15
when they are getting 16-5'd on Nuke against NiP, with 1 of the 5 was a hard eco win,and an other was a godlike clutch, than I guess they aren't atm.
2017-04-06 19:22
So 1 match is enough to make a team not real
2017-04-06 19:35
I did not say they were not a real team overall. I said they were not a real time at that match. Hard to understand sentences, huh?
2017-04-06 19:39
Dude, you clearly said that they will face *real* opponents and lose in your first post.Which means the teams that didn't make it to playoffs are not real but why are we even arguing it's just Internet

I know a lot of people might say that frags aren't everything. But when you're negative KDR in all 3 maps (in which you're bottom fragging in 2 and last but 2nd in the 3rd), that does say quite a lot about his form at the moment.

VP is such a Tier 3/4 team nowadays. When you get rekt by NiP who struggled half of the game vs MVP project, you know you're done :)

Nice game from Xitz but again sad to see gtr doing so bad again. At least this time he took one for the team and had a bad post as ct.

byali on his stream prior to this tourny looks so slow and misses so many shots. I guess that slump kept continuing.
