NiP send Sprout packing at Europe Minor

NiP have beaten Sprout 2-1 to stay alive at the Europe Minor (16-3 on Nuke, 14-16 on Mirage, and 16-13 on Train).

The lower bracket final at the Europe Minor featured NiP and Sprout. The best-of-three game kicked off on Nuke with the Swedes on the CT-side. While NiP picked up the pistol round and two anti-ecos, Sprout triumphed in the first weapon round to trail 3-1.

NiP's response was a six round streak which extended their lead to 9-1. NiP led 13-2 at halftime and secured the second half pistol round to make it 14-2. Christopher "GeT_RiGhT" Alesund & company wrapped it up with a 16-3 scorline.

dennis had a huge impact in the series

Denis "denis" Howell's team started Mirage on the T-side and grabbed the first seven rounds. NiP hit back in the eighth round but they were reset in the ninth one, trailing 8-1. Sprout finished the first half 12-3 ahead as they clutched a 2vs4 in the 15th round.

NiP secured the first five rounds on the T-side to trail 12-8. Sprout earned four map points but NiP won a 2vs4 and a 3vs5 in the 27th and 29th rounds, respectively, to get to the ultimate regulation round. Martin "PERCY" Wessel denied the bomb plant in the last seconds of the last round to win the map 16-14 for Sprout.

Sprout are out of the Minor

Train started with Dennis "dennis" Edman & Jonas "Lekr0" Olofsson's 2vs4 clutch in the pistol round which put the T-sided NiP 1-0 ahead. Sprout won the first weapon round and followed it up with four more rounds to lead 5-3. NiP's success in weapon rounds came towards the end of the half which they managed to win 8-7.

Timo "Spiidi" Richter & co. won the second half pistol round and the following round to take the lead (9-8). NiP tied the game at 9-9 by winning the 18th round thanks to a saved UMP and a Scout. The Swedish side went on to get a 16-13 map victory to win the series 2-1.

Tomorrow, NiP will play the loser of the match between ENCE and OpTic for a spot at the FACEIT Major New Challengers Stage. Sprout, on the other hand, have been eliminated from the Europe Minor.

NIP 46 rounds Sprout 32 rounds. How was sprout unlucky to lose this?
2018-07-21 22:26
Last map was pretty close I think that's what he meant
2018-07-21 22:32
Possible, but based on those stats it bad luck would have been on NIPs side in that case. Now the deserving team won.

You know that's just a saying, like "gg" or "wp", didn't actually mean they were unlucky
2018-07-21 23:06
actually taking a look at the scores nuke was a blowout but the other 2 were very close. you cant just add the total number of rounds over 3 maps that each team won and use it to prove your point. that is a key example of a manipulation of statistics.
2018-07-22 02:07
are you braindead? it'd be unlucky for nip to blowout and then lose 2 maps close, that's what he's talking about man, your dad really did make a mistake not pulling out...
2018-07-22 05:24
lmao you just made yourself out as a moron. comment #1 said that it was unlucky that sprout lost. comment #68 responded by manipulating statistics to prove that nip won many more rounds then sprout, when that was only true in one of the maps. the other 2 maps were very close and the case can be made that sprout was "unlucky". idk what the fuck you are talking about but dont worry i wont fire any ad hominem attacks or bring any more light to your comment so that you arent too embarrassed about your low iq and horrid comprehension skills.
2018-07-22 05:38
Say you won’t use ad hominem and then procede to use as hominem. Brain dead idiot, who dropped you on your head as a baby? Sprout got blown out fucktard
2018-07-22 05:40
MY BELLY IS HUGE - MY BRAIN HAS DELAY - YOU GUESSED IT RIGHT - I'M FROM NA
2018-07-22 11:53
lmao yea you caught onto it. XD you really dont understand sarcasm. your comprehension skills are lower than i thought. this is very troublesome. and no they didnt. they lost a close match but deserved to lose.
2018-07-22 18:48
What I oppose to is the use of unlucky with regards to Sprout. If NIP had lost the last map then they would have been unlucky looking at the whole series, Sprout was if anything lucky it got so close.
2018-07-22 11:29
i dont believe it was luck. nip is a better team. im saying that 2 of the 3 maps were very close and by adding in the total of the 3 maps, one of which was a blowout, makes the whole series like pretty one sided.
