NiP edge past SK into IEM Oakland final

November 19th, 2017 01:27

NiP will fight for the IEM Oakland grand prize of $125,000 after moving past SK Gaming 2-1 in the semi-finals.

The first match at the Oracle Arena began on SK's map pick, Overpass, where the Brazilians got out to a quick 4-0 lead on the defensive side after retaking the A site in the pistol round and shutting down NiP's third-round buy.

After a brief tactical pause, NiP finally managed to break through the stern SK defense, but only because of a great individual round from Richard "Xizt" Landström, who clutched a 1v2 situation with a stellar spray. SK immediately rallied back, however, resetting the Swedes.

Down 1-7, NiP changed their game plan and began to counter SK's overaggression. Little by little, the Swedish team took control of the economy, setting themselves up for a surprising 8-7 lead with a seven-round win streak.

SK levelled the score in the second half with an A execution in the pistol round, with Marcelo "coldzera" David getting three kills to his name. But NiP would not let their opponents retake the lead as they hit back in an eco round with double-kills from Patrik "f0rest" Lindberg and Christopher "GeT_RiGhT" Alesund.

That round swung the momentum back towards NiP, who simply ran away with the lead. SK still managed to take a gun round, reducing the deficit to 9-12, but they could not follow that up and were faced with a hard reset. Strapped for cash, the Brazilians simply could not keep the Ninjas from taking the map, with Xizt capping a great display with a triple kill in the final round.

NiP are through to the grand final

Next up was Cache, NiP's map pick, where the Swedes got off to a slow start, losing the first three rounds, the last of which a buy attempt. The Ninjas then surprisingly reduced the deficit, courtesy of two entry kills from Fredrik "REZ" Sterner on the A site, but SK regained control after finding themselves with a two-man advantage early on.

A massive blunder from SK cost them the next round, saving NiP from an economic reset, but the Brazilians did not let that get to them and increased their lead to 7-2. After that, NiP's offense flourished. Until the end of the half, SK would only get one more round as the Swedish team managed to bring the deficit to a minimum thanks to a solid display from REZ.

The 19-year-old would come up huge in the following pistol round, clutching a 1v3 situation to to restore parity at 8-8. However, his effort did not trouble SK, who rallied back on a force buy and regained control of proceedings.

In the 20th round, GeT_RiGhT came close to ending SK's streak after finding four kills in the storage room, but Gabriel "FalleN" Toledo pulled off a 1v3 clutch - putting NiP against the ropes and setting his team up for a convincing victory.

coldzera's one-man show not enough against the Ninjas

It all came down to Inferno, where SK came out the livelier of the two sides, winning the pistol round and the subsequent anti-ecos to secure a 3-0 lead. After buying up, NiP got a footing in the game as they won four of the next five rounds, one of them a force-buy after being left low on cash.

A 1v2 clutch from coldzera then put SK back in the lead, but not for long. NiP tightened up their defense after getting their economy back on track and brought the scoreline to an 8-6 advantage before the Brazilians reduced the deficit to a minimum with a B execution on an extremely shoddy buy.

Carrying their momentum into the following pistol round, NiP opened things up with a fast A execution that proved successful as they planted the bomb in a 5v2 situation. After winning both anti-ecos, NiP also took the first full gun round, putting the Brazilians in a very difficult economic situation.

After getting a decent bank to work with, SK put a double AWP setup to great use, winning back-to-back rounds and forcing a tactical pause out of NiP. But after that, SK's defense collapsed as the Ninjas took control of the game with a series of B executions to book their spot in Sunday's title decider.

Tbf the entire team played average at best. Idk, Boltz wasn't the problem on this tournament like everyone would expect, TACO was just playing as he always does, the team just didn't played well enough. And cold is being insane as always, not much else you can ask from him.
2017-11-19 03:14
SK's weakest link on inferno is ALWAYS B site and Banana.
2017-11-19 10:09

When your 2nd star frags the same as the worst player on the rival's team then you can't really blame the dumb guy. I mean, fer 44 frags, cmon dood, he should be 2nd or 3rd (let's say that Boltz or FalleN are on fire then he could get 3rd, otherwise 2nd) Fer was weak af on this series, and ofc NiP was playing great.
2017-11-19 03:16

That's not an observation at all,anyone can tell you that nip isn't winning anything except shinning at iem Oakland.It is too obvious that you are bashing it stop denying and deluding please.You can't possibly fool yourself.

Just look at their results. Aside from a couple quarterfinal appearances, they only show up in Oakland. Now how is that not an objective analysis of their track record?
2017-11-19 02:22
Ofc you are right, but bashing nip for their results is a bit ironic for a Misfit fan that's all.

Well, I guess it is. Oh well. If I only cared about results, I'd have a FaZe flair, but I don't. Misfits is one of those teams, for me, that you know won't win much, but you always hope that one day they'll break through. Similar to NiP, but on another level of CS

Interesting to see how shaky SK suddenly performd on Overpass as it seemed like Boltz wouldn‘t even need time to adapt to SK‘s playstyle. Nonetheless a good result for them though it showed they need more time to integrate Boltz. Great game from NiP, I‘m happy they made it to the finals x)
2017-11-19 01:42
and suddenly beating VP and they loaned Boltz 3 days earlier before epicenter. but csgo is a dailyformbased game

The core of 4 consists for roughly 2 years now? Why are you talking about adapting. Players on this skill level dont need to adapt months. Especially since boltz has played with fallen and i guess fer? before.

how much money taco made sk players lose? at least 300k
2017-11-19 02:26
300k each, cause taco made sk players lose many others tournaments. in fact, they are not lose because of felps, is taco as always who cant made he own role.

The biggest surprised to me in this thread isnt NiP winning over SK, but the fairplay shown by brazilian fans towards NiP. Even having the most stupid fanboys in the world, its really good to see that their true fans (not blind fanboys) have such a good sportsmanship. Kuddos to you brazilians who posted in this thread.

This is mainly because of NiP, they are prime act of how gamers looks like (especially f0rest). Enjoying game each other, not blaming or being toxit on other players etc. That's why everyone loves NiP because they are so f*cking good and nice.

Sad part is SK wins this easily if Taco does basic shit ( not go - 28 with 40 ADR ) Trade 1 kill and get 1 kill every few rounds holding a site. No words how you can be this bad... playing on a top 3 team...

So it took a mental coach (jens) to get out of their slump? I wonder why they couldn't make this move when they were constantly removing their 5th player blaming it all on the poor guy? Now all of a sudden, they are hitting their shots. This team reminds me of Metallica from the St. Anger days. Full of drama.
