NIP come back from a map behind against NASR

Massive underdogs NASR gave Ninjas in Pyjamas a run for their money in the last quarter-final series at the Global Esports Tour.

Rounding out day one in Dubai, Ninjas in Pyjamas locked in a berth in the tournament's semi-finals. The Swedes, still playing with Erik "⁠ztr⁠" Gustafsson instead of an illness-stricken Hampus "⁠hampus⁠" Poser, fended off a surprisingly competitive NASR squad after three maps.

The new-look OG, who recently brought in Maciej "⁠F1KU⁠" Miklas and Adam "⁠NEOFRAG⁠" Zouhar and are playing their first tournament with the new lineup, await Ninjas in Pyjamas In the next round of the single-elimination bracket.

ztr topped the charts in his second stint filling in for hampus

Everything seemed to be going well for the heavy favorites at first on Mirage. After a brief back-and-forth, Ninjas in Pyjamas took control of the first half on the back of an eco win featuring an Patrick "⁠es3tag⁠" Hansen triple, and from there NASR didn't have an answer to the Swedish defense.

But when sides switched, it was Adel "⁠Remind⁠" Guermassi's team's turn to dominate on the CT side. Undoubtedly the most experienced player of the roster as a former forZe member, Almaz "⁠almazer⁠" Asadullin, was firing on all cylinders in particular, leading the way to an impressive comeback from NASR from a 5-10 first half along with Mohammad "⁠BOROS⁠" Malhas.

Ninjas in Pyjamas woke up after the shocking loss on the opener, though, responding with a dominant Overpass victory that saw stand-in ztr top the charts. A similarly one-sided affair on the deciding Nuke followed, with the Swedes finishing off the series in comfortable fashion after all.

Always funny to see an absolute nobody jumping and screaming after winning a game versus a team that was clearly fighting to get motivated for playing a bunch of...nice guys. Good thing that being ridiculous is not deadly ...

Comparatively, Brollan could perform an entire 4 hours stand-up comedy show on the desk every time they won a map. Try to understand that's it's about awareness of yourself ...

Let me get this straight, so a tier 3 team from United Arab Emirates is losing the first half on Mirage 10-5 to NIP (top 7) on a tournament in United Arab Emirates and makes a comeback and wins the map without OT? How much did sheikhs pay to NIP?

Middle East, Pakistan and India have some really good talent in CS:GO. Problem is the exposure. Practically no tournaments and sponsors to support the growth of the game in the region.
