NiP knock out GODSENT
With a dominating 16-3 score on Train and 16-8 on Cache, NiP eliminated GODSENT in last place at cs_summit.
NIP took control of map one, Train, right at the beginning with Richard "Xizt" Landström picking up three kills. GODSENT bought up in the third round, but they were met with a forceful defense as their Swedish rivals went up 6-0.
Simon "twist" Eliasson's triple gave his squad their first round on the board, but their economy was in shreds right afterwards, as William "draken" Sundin kept getting picks all across the map, extending the lead to 11-1. Xizt then clutched a 1v1 with a last-second defuse before Markus "pronax" Wallsten and Jonas "Lekr0" Olofsson finished the half with a triple and a 1v1, respectively.
NiP move on in the lower bracket
NIP once again got off to a flying start on Cache, their own pick, getting a 4-0 lead with the pistol round and the first gunround going their way. twist then put up a triple with a saved weapon before draken clutched a flashy 1v3 for a 5-1 lead in favor of NIP.
The next two rounds went GODSENT's way, but an eco win by their opponents on the B bombsite stopped the streak in its infancy and set off one for NIP in turn. Forcing pronax's squad on ecos over and over, Christopher "GeT_RiGhT" Alesund and company secured a 11-4 half.
Andreas "znajder" Lindberg's four kills in the pistol and twist's near-impossible 1v2 clutch in one of the following anti-ecos closed the gap to 11-7. NIP then grabbed the first two gunrounds on the A bombsite, which forced GODSENT on an eco, and grabbed match point at 15-7. znajder and company mustered a poor buy and delayed for one round, but it wasn't nearly enough to mount a comeback as draken picked up three kills on the B bombsite to finish the match at 16-8.
