NiP confirmed for DreamHack Masters Malmö

DreamHack has announced that NiP join the participants' list of their Masters event hosted in Malmö, Sweden.

NiP's invitation to the event brings the team tally to a total of six, as the Swedes join the likes of Liquid, Vitality and Astralis at the event.

The team currently stands at #12 in the world rankings, just 25 points behind their successors, mousesports. In recent times, the roster has shown an upward trajectory, as the team was able to make playoffs of a Big event in ESL One Cologne after sustaining group stage exits at three of their last four LAN tournaments.

Homecrowd favourites NiP will be seen in Malmö

The event in Malmö holds a special place in the organisation's history, as NiP secured gold at the first ever iteration of DreamHack's Masters series, defeating Natus Vincere in the Malmö grand final in a distant 2016.

DreamHack Masters Malmö will take place on October 1-6, featuring $250,000 in prize money. With the addition of NiP, the tournament's lineup looks as follows:

Denmark OpTic
Sweden fnatic
France Vitality
Other TBA

Who's better deserving? Fnatic? Maybe. MiBR? Fuck no, not until they show their Major run. NaVi? Yes, but I think they'll be invited anyways. TYLOO? Nope, they've been a disappointment. Renegades? They seem to have lost their groove. NRG? Yes. North? Maybe.

Nah fam, VP killed itself. NiP is reinventing, one piece at a time.
2019-07-18 16:40
they are the new VP as far as getting invited to every tournament while being absolute dogshit. Now is the part where you tell me "But they got top 8 at Cologne beating Vitality in bo1 and heroic in bo3!!"
2019-07-18 16:44

Atleast NiP can go toe-to-toe with top teams like Astralis and Liquid if atleast two of them pop off. I doubt VP can/could do that.
2019-07-18 16:44
Go look at NiP's results against top 5 teams in the least year and a half. They met Astralis countless times, I don't remember on the top of my head any series where they made it competitive. They rolled over most times without even getting double digits on maps.

India MihirX27 
Read the "if" statement. Of course, in the matches you're referring to, all the players have negative stats. Not a single player could have a field day. Whenever NiP went close/defeated either team, two were going Absolutely HAM.

ESL One: Cologne 2019 5-6 Intel Extreme Masters Sydney 5-6 Intel Extreme Masters Katowice Major 2019 5-8 Yes thy have have like DH Masters Dallas where thy had pita as stand in and ecs finals was also a bad tournament for them
2019-07-18 17:06
IEM Sydney was the worst "tier 1" event of this year there was no ENCE, Vitality, Na'Vi, Astralis and FaZe were playing with their coach. Opponents NiP beat at this event : eUnited, Renegades. Cologne I already said they only beat Vitality in bo1 and heroic in bo3. For Katowice yes I agree getting top 8 was a good results for this team but that was half a year ago now. If anything you just prove my point.
2019-07-18 17:41
Its not nips fault that Ence lost to Heroic Its not nips fault that ENCE, Vitality, Na'Vi and Astralis wasn't at iem sydney And what wrong wining the 2 matches to get to playoff?
2019-07-18 18:47
or are you mad that nip won over Vitality
2019-07-18 18:52
not saying it's nip's fault but the reality is when they did face good teams (Astralis, Na'Vi) they didn't fare well at all. And why would I be mad ? Vitality had a great tournament and everyone can beat anyone in bo1.
2019-07-18 18:57
Faze cant win aginst Astralis so what your point And in Cologne Nip did make it to overtime against Astralis of course thy did't win that match but as i said faze can't win aginst them

Wasted spot is the one to baguettality... throwing game becouse tired. I think that the events organizers shoud ask Tiredtality before inviting them if they feel tired or relaxed to see if they are worthy an invite or a spa weekend
2019-07-20 15:06
They weren’t invited to that tournament, They qualified. And it’s not as if many other teams, included NiP allready refused invites to practice for tournaments or rest
