GODSENT oust NiP at cs_summit

GODSENT have advanced to the lower bracket semi-finals at cs_summit 6 after beating NiP.

Although at one point it looked like GODSENT would be on the receiving end of a tough beating again after a poor showing against BIG in the upper quarter-finals, the Kevin "⁠kRYSTAL⁠" Amend-led squad managed to recover from the tough loss as they came back from behind on Vertigo to win in triple overtime before securing a comfortable Train affair.

Despite the loss, the Swedes have earned enough points to maintain at least a top-six placing in the European ranking by the time cs_summit 6 comes to a close, with at least 1,125 points secured from the second Regional Major Ranking event and the potential to earn 125 more in a seventh-place decider against North on Thursday.

Vertigo was a game of big CT sides and missed opportunities. It was initially looking set to be a quick affair when NiP put together a solid defense in part thanks to a halfbuy win in the sixth round which tipped the scales in the Swedes' favor, but it soon turned out that the Hampus "⁠hampus⁠" Poser-led side would have their work cut out for them.

STYKO's heroics helped GODSENT turn Vertigo on its head

Down 5-11, GODSENT started mounting a comeback while Martin "⁠STYKO⁠" Styk kept running rampant in defense of middle and the B bombsite, initially picking up a triple in a forcebuy win before adding four more multikills to his name over the course of an eight-round streak.

The first opportunity to close the opening map was in the hands of NiP, who stopped GODSENT's massive run when they turned around a 3v5 in an afterplant scenario on B, but consecutive plays from Pavle "⁠Maden⁠" Bošković ensured overtime. There, the European mix had their big chance to open the series with a win after going 3-0 on the defense, but the Swedes responded with a three-round run of their own on the back of Nicolas "⁠Plopski⁠" Gonzalez Zamora's quad-kill.

It wasn't until the third overtime, after GODSENT couldn't capitalize on yet another map point in the second, that Vertigo came to an end when kRYSTAL's team found success on the offense, with the German in-game leader himself putting the map to rest with a 1v2 clutch for a 25-23 victory.

Train turned out to be a much more comfortable affair for Jesse "⁠zehN⁠" Linjala and company. After not letting NiP capitalize on a pistol round win, GODSENT dominated again on the CT side as a double-AWP setup in the hands of Asger "⁠Farlig⁠" Jensen and Maden worked wonders and earned them an 11-4 halftime score. STYKO's 1v3 clutch in the second pistol spelled even more trouble for the Swedes, who did their best to come back into contention from a 4-15 deficit but ultimately couldn't keep the offense at bay after the sixth attempt from GODSENT to close the map was successful.

He improved a lot lately
2020-06-30 21:54
I know, right?
2020-06-30 22:04
Yes, STYKO is an underrated player, I've been saying this since forever. He was the support on mouz and people expected him to hard-carry games lol, look at him now when he's allowed to be more of a star-player, he's a beast.

Well not sure what you mean by always but STYKO is from my country and I've supported him since I started watching pro CS, he got a lot of undeserved hate and I'm happy he's doing great in GODSENT now.

Honestly NiP has been pretty dead since Xizt left (I'm not even trying to fanboy) Dennis is a improvement in almost every way, so they should be even better, but they weren't. The only times they really won games against good competition was when GeT_RiGhT stepped up. F0rest always put up a solid performance but lets be honest here, he shouldn't be your star player. He is a great player but he isn't star material, especially for a team that wants to be at the top. REZ was kinda hit-or-miss, same with Draken. Xizt played strange, he was so good and yet so bad. When Dennis came in everyone thought that NiP could come back. In several interviews and stuff Draken said that stuff stopped working out with him after Xizt left, so he left, and they got Lekr0, which was arguably another improvement. This should have been their best team, everyone was an above average player in the team. And yet they did even worst. Dennis gets replaced by Plopski, which should have been another improvement, but it didn't pan out. This team was the most star-studded roster they've ever had, and yet they played even worst. When GTR left, they got Twist, which was ANOTHER improvement, finally F0rest can go back to rifling (he never was and never wanted to be an AWPer, just since Draken left he was kinda forced too) But now they were even worst. F0rest leaves for DIG, and NiP puts in ANOTHER star, Nawwk. This again should have been an improvement, and yet it wasn't. Then they kicked Lekr0, one of their best players, for Hampus, a... less the stellar player. The group stage would probably be easier for them, as teams don't put in as much prep and stuff. As we can see in this game, NiP isnt what they used to. They keep making mistake after mistake allowing GODSENT to win. I see people talking about Krystals clutches. But rewatch them, Krytal wasn't hitting insane shots, he just took advantage of NiP's weakness, which is their lack of experience and their tendencies to make mistakes.
