TyLoo send NiP home, advance to CS:GO Asia Championships semi-finals

TYLOO are through to the semi-finals at the CS:GO Asia Championships 2018 after defeating NiP 2-1 to eliminate the Swedish team (16-14 on Inferno, 5-16 on Overpass, and 16-9 on Cache).

The quarter-finals kicked off on Inferno, TYLOO's map pick, where the Chinese team claimed the pistol and the following anti-eco in a fresh 2-0 start. TYLOO looked to earn their third, but a smooth triple-kill retake from Christopher "GeT_RiGhT" Alesund put NiP back on track (1-2). From there, NiP went on to win three in a row, before TYLOO's aggression snapped the streak (3-5).

The two sides then went back and forth, until NiP won two rounds to make it 7-4. TYLOO weren't going down without a fight and fired back with three massive rounds to even things out 7-7, but Jonas "Lekr0" Olofsson's triple-kill hold set NiP up for an 8-7 lead at the half.

BnTeT led the way for TyLoo on Inferno with a 1.45 rating

In the second half, NiP continued their momentum to secure the second pistol and the following anti-ecos; however, TYLOO turned the tides in the gun round to win four straight to equalize the score (11-11).

TYLOO pressed on to add two more to their lead, but the Swedes came rallying back with three on the board to edge the lead (14-13). In the end, TYLOO answered back with a stout defense that held the line for the remainder of the half, winning three straight to take the map and the series lead (16-14).

NiP's map pick, Overpass, kicked off with the Swedes securing the T pistol and the following anti-ecos for a clean 3-0 start. TYLOO then got back in the picture in their full buy round to win two in a row, but a quad-kill by Lekr0 in the 6th round stumped the Chinese team (4-2).

NiP went on to extend their lead 9-2 winning six straight, before TYLOO broke the streak to claim their third and last of the half. The Swedes lunged forward winning the three remaining rounds to lead 12-3 at halftime.

The second half saw NiP claim the second pistol, but the Swedes could not come out on top in the anti-ecos as TYLOO were fighting to stay alive putting two on the board (5-14). All in all, NiP were able to claim the remaining two rounds, with Patrik "f0rest" Lindberg and Lekr0 putting in most of the work forcing the decider.

dennis and co. came up short on Cache

The series then came down to the decider, Cache, where the Chinese team were off to a slated 2-0 start, winning the pistol and the anti-eco. NiP's aggression paid off in the following round to win their first, then, Lekr0 tied the game 2-2 with a quad-kill that included a 1vs1 clutch.

The two sides then traded rounds until NiP finally jumped out for an 8-5 lead, but HaoWen "somebody" Xu kept his composure with the entry-kills and steered TYLOO back in the game to settle the score 7-8 at the half. In the second half, NiP struggled against the aggressive T-side from TYLOO, who won four straight to make it 11-8.

Another smooth triple-kill retake of the series by GeT_RiGhT earned NiP's first round of the half, but TYLOO did not let their foot off the gas and drove off with the half winning five straight to claim the 16-9 map victory, taking the series 2-1 and securing a spot in the semi-finals.

I support both, but surely this was a surprise. NiP only got 1 week practice with Lekr0 so this is kinda expected. But yeah, TyLoo with BnTeT carrying AE can win this tourney. I hope Mo can recover so TyLoo can battle EU scene. EU scene kinda weird now. I'm proud of him, whether he knew me or not. Go TyLoo!

Oh wow :S This is really bad from NiP. They really, really, really need to re-think to replace the whole thing to be honest. They havent won squat. Im thinking of selling my shares that I invest in the concern that holds NiP tbh... This is beyond salvation.

Red Reserve just acquired the best swedish lineup after NiP and fnatic, so replacing the whole shit can't possibly make NiP be a champion somewhere. The current lineup, even though can still choke vs Tier 2 team, they can still compete in the Tier 1, which is enough for them to rework their own problem. Premiere League isn't only Manchester United. La Liga isn't only Real Madrid. If Astralis were Real Madrid NiP would be Malaga or Espanol, those teams that is still tier 1, but not necessarily be a champion to survive.
2018-06-17 11:13
Are we following the same team? They havent won anything at all? Nothing you can claim and say "wow" to. They've had so much time to fix and prepare and make these changes that they still think they are fluking since year 2013. Thats enough to make a 360 degree change. Whatever they do now will choke against any tier team. They lost to TyLoo which is an stable tier 3-4 team according to the HLTV rankings. Nothing can save NiP. No coach, no player, no tactic and no miracle. Harsh but true. It went to hell since Mikalelele exchange and I dont even like that prick.
2018-06-17 16:45
Yes, but it just simply didn't work. Replacing the whole thing. Nothing we can do. We only wait for new talent nor other swedish lineup to disband. Wait I just read that you bought some shares from NiP?
2018-06-17 16:52
You do understand that NiP are losing praccs to "minor" Swedish teams too? :3 Just pick anything thats better than NiP. Yes. I've had them since 2013. Its sad but true :E Back then NiP had everything as merch - everything from socks to their own crips and food. That was selling. It was great. And now since this team has gone to hell some years ago, nothing that has "NiP" as a brand sells anymore... :3 Time to sell; I've gained more then lost and its time to move on :3
2018-06-17 17:26
I don't know they're losing practice to any swedish team. I barely knew NiP's practicing at all. Haha, esports was a quick business, man. It changes much over small time.
