Na`Vi take down NiP 2-0 to win BLAST Pro Series Copenhagen 2018

After a long day of best-of-one matches, Natus Vincere beat NiP 16-10 on Mirage and 16-12 on Inferno to lift the trophy in the Danish capital.

The final series of the event started off on Mirage, with Natus Vincere winning the first pistol round on the CT-side without giving away a single kill. Danylo "Zeus" Teslenko's men quickly cruised ahead, as NiP looked weak on the offensive, only gaining entry to bomb sites twice and getting a total of seven kills as the scoreline reached 6-1 in favour of Natus Vincere.

The Swedes then gathered their wits and started stringing together rounds, as Jonas "Lekr0" Olofsson and Christopher "GeT_RiGhT" Alesund ramped up their kill score with NiP eventually reaching five rounds to decrease the deficit to one. Aleksandr "s1mple" Kostyliev and co. then partly regained control, winning the next three while only conceding one more round to close out the half 9-6.

Zeus and his men win their first event since ESL One Cologne

NiP came out on top after the switch, as they won the the second pistol on the CT-side and generally looked composed, also securing the next two rounds to tie up the game. The 19th round was a nail-biter, as Egor "flamie" Vasilyev and Patrik "f0rest" Lindberg ended up in a 1v1-post plant situation on A, which the Russian won with just the Deagle in hand.

This seemed to reinvigorate Natus Vincere, who quickly closed out Mirage by winning six out of the following seven rounds to win the map 16-10.

Things then moved on to Inferno, the second-most played map throughout the Copenhagen event.

The Ninjas won the second pistol round on the T-side, but Zeus and co. managed a bomb plant, which earned them enough to buy up in the second to tie up the map. After the two teams shared the next two rounds, Natus Vincere started pulling ahead, eventually reaching a 6-2 lead. The CIS side would take two more rounds before halftime, but NiP would come back with six of their own on the back of several multi kill rounds by Lekr0 and f0rest to reach a 7-8 deficit at the switch.

electronic showed up big on Inferno to close out the series for Na`Vi

The Swedes looked set to win the second pistol round, but Denis "electronic" Sharipov ruined it for them by clutching a 1v3 post-plant situation as CT without losing a single point of health. Eyeing a road to the series and tournament win, Natus Vincere ramped up their game and won three more to lead 12-7, but NiP would win the next trio of rounds to keep themselves in the race.

After a triple kill hold on B by the captain himself to reach 14 rounds, Zeus' men reached match point, but their Swedish adversaries kept themselves in the fight by winning two of their own. Eventually, though, Natus Vincere could not be stopped, as they put the lid on Inferno 16-12 to win the series 2-0 and take the title as BLAST Pro Series Copenhagen 2018 victors.

There was only one way this was going to go Overall a good event, but I'm not sure why hltv puts it in the big event category 5 bo1 does not make for thorough placings. Navi deserves credit for winning, but wtf did NiP do besides grind some bo1 wins? And now they'll get the same number of ranking points as NaVi did for getting second at epicenter

Winning the tournament boosts the relevance of the stats. If you're the 3rd best player but you get farther than the 1st and 2nd best player it can be enough to place you higher especially if you have a great grand final performance. You do realize "most valuable" doesnt equal "highest rating" right? However in the case of electronic he always gets as far as s1mple and s1mple outperformed everyone at Blast. Also it's not organizers its HLTV

NiP would have at least taken this to a third map if they didn't lose to ecos and lost 5-6 x 4v2/5v3/1v3. So much potential in NiP but they lack the structure and teamplay to push them over the edge. Hope they can build on this
