NiP over VG 2-0, wins AMD Sapphire

NiP has managed to win yet another tournament in Prague, as they defeated VeryGames 2-0 (16-9 de_nuke_ve, 16-11 de_inferno_se). The third place decider went to myDGB, who defeated BuyKey 2-0.

VeryGames managed to win the opening terrorist side pistol round on de_nuke_ve thanks to one-on-three heroics from Nathan "NBK" Schmitt, but NiP's second round buy quickly tied the game and shifted momentum.

NiP went on to win six straight rounds, led by Christopher "GeT_RiGhT" Alesund, but the Frenchmen started getting into the game right after, winning three of the next five to make it 4-8, with NiP on the verge of having to save.

That was not meant to be however as they traded the final three rounds in a fashion that allowed them to keep their money up at all times, and ended the half up 10-5 with Alesund at 21 frags.

Ex6TenZ getting loud

Ex6TenZ & co have to go home with another second place finish 

Second half saw VG dig themselves into an even deeper hole, as their failed push outside allowed NiP to plant the bomb on the lower site where Patrik "f0rest" Lindberg's pair of Desert Eagle kills and a one-on-one win won the round.

First gun round went to NiP, as well as the following save round, giving the Swedes map point at 15-5. VeryGames mounted a short lived comeback by winning four straight rounds, but NiP closed out the map at 16-9.

VeryGames won the pistol round as terrorists on de_inferno_se, followed up by two save rounds from NiP. Fourth round saw Schmitt and Cédric Guipouy win a two-on-two, with VG going up 5-0.

Round six saw Lindberg and Richard "Xizt" Landström pick up two kills each as NiP got on board with their first round. VG lost the next round as well before succesfully force buying with two saved weapons, but then NiP struck back, winning six straight rounds.

GeT_RiGhT's NiP are still untouchable in CS:GO 

VG won the final round of the half and the counter-terrorist pistol round, but NiP's Desert Eagle buy won them the second round once again. Round three saw VG go up in a two-on-one, but Adam "friberg" Friberg got his team the win.

Next round was in a three-on-three, but Alesund's flank allowed him to pick up three AK47 kills as he bolstered his score to 26/12. VeryGames traded the next couple of rounds, which allowed NiP to go up 14-9.

Kévin "Ex6TenZ" Droolans won a one-on-one for his team, but NiP instantly won a round back to force game point. The match was seconds from being over, but time ran out on the next round with NiP up in numbers.

That was all she sang for VeryGames though, as the Ninjas managed to once again come out on top, with Alesund and Robin "Fifflaren" Johansson winning a two-on-four situation in the B site to win 16-11.

2nd December 2012

In the third place decider the only team with local support,, defeated Adil "ScreaM" Benrlitom's BuyKey 2-0 (16-9 on de_mirage_csgo and 16-13 on de_nuke_ve) to claim $4,000.

AMD Sapphire CS:GO Invitational final standings:

1. Sweden NiP - $10,000
2. France VeryGames - $6,000
3. Slovakia - $4,000
4. France BuyKey
5-8. Portugal k1ck
5-8. Poland ESC Gaming
5-8. Russia zNation
5-8. France eXtensive
9-10. Russia dAT Team
9-10. Belgium Brussels Guardians

This now marks the fourth consecutive event where NiP has taken down VeryGames 2-0 in the grand finals. Next up for NiP will be Thor Open in Stockholm on December 8-9, while VeryGames hasn't announced plans for more events in 2012.

GeT_RiGhT was such a beast, gg. I Wonder how much time will it take to see NiP place second or lower in a tournament.
2012-12-02 23:11
probably until they lose motivation to practice as hard as they do, which will happen eventually.
2012-12-02 23:13
If they keep winning prize money don't see any reason for them to stop - doubt they'll lose motivation considering they can beat everyone with the pracc they put in, but its possible :D
2012-12-02 23:18
2012-12-02 23:47
Actually, it is VERY common for dominant teams/groups to start getting sloppy with training etc after a period of not being defeated, due to hubris. That's one of the reasons why teams always want humble people who can say "I can always become better" instead of people who say "I'm already the best there is"
2012-12-03 08:38
as Plainswind says, winning over and over is poison to motivation. after a while you start to think that you're SO GOOD that you don't even need to practice. honestly i expect that to happen to NiP very soon, they've not only won a lot but they're also COMPLETELY DOMINANT in the scene right now. i mean, if the games were tight and they lost some maps here n there they'd feel that they at least were under some pressure, but now? however, NiP seems to have a lineup with people who are very determined to pracc hard. i mean, they have GeT_RiGhT, the biggest cs lover in history for christ sakes. but also the other guys that haven't been quite as successful before are probably still hungry for more.
2012-12-03 19:47
didn't VG win like 28 tournaments out of 29 or something like that in source? I think NiP will do that and more... money is enough motivation to keep them focused on the game. of course the human body has limits, and they won't practice as hard as they're doing now forever... but Im pretty sure they will still be unbeatable for some months, I don't want to say years... but damn :/
2012-12-03 22:34
as long as ther`s is fine money involved they wont loose motivation :D

NiP again ofc.. as far as individual play goes tho scream was truly the king
2012-12-02 23:12
+1 Scream-dA-KinG But Nip is a team with 3 Extreme PLayers and 2 sensible players:) I think ScreaM needs a good teaM
2012-12-02 23:17
Gtr was the king and the mvp of this tournament once again ;) scream was simply a beast, a revelation.
2012-12-02 23:50
RPK kennyS screaM Shoxx +IGL This current vg lineup just aint strong enough individually , and even in source they failed with this lineup at the biggest Lan cph games 2012 coming like 8-12th lol.
2012-12-02 23:13
the current vg lineup might not be strong enough individually, but they are the 2nd best team in the world right now :) no need to change players
2012-12-02 23:16
now yeah but 2013 will be top 10
2012-12-02 23:18
For now but 2013 I don't think so.
2012-12-02 23:21
VG is great atm tho...NiP just so much individual skill

2012-12-02 23:27
Your memory fails you. kennyS and SmithZz did not play for VG at CPH, it was apEx and mK. The infamous laptop incident occurred.
2012-12-02 23:45
when fnatic put in many hours of pracc, will crush VG easily trust me. Aimwise from fnatic is more or minus equally than NiP.
2012-12-03 04:05
of course they're strong enough individually. have you forgotten this is a new game, NiP have the 2 best players of all time and adapted quickly on top of that, but VG will get closer to NiP with time. This time next year things will be quite different, fnatic, VG, NiP, probably a danish team, possibly etc. will all have the ability to beat each other.
2012-12-03 10:01
Just to follow up on this, just saw the stats for the tournament - 4 of 5 VG players were in the top 10 ranked players (statistically) as opposed to only GTR and f0rest being in the top 10 from NiP. So individual skill of the VG players shouldn't be brought into question.
2012-12-03 11:10
"they failed with this lineup at the biggest Lan cph games 2012" Wrong. That was RpK, NBK, Ex6TenZ, Apex and mK
2012-12-03 12:09
you will never see a better french ingame leader than Ex6TenZ

2012-12-02 23:18

2012-12-02 23:19
No they don't :) You're thinking of VeryGames vs ASES
2012-12-02 23:21
ah okej, my bad.
2012-12-02 23:23
lol didnt NiP play 15-15 against the spanish ASES?

2012-12-02 23:26
They also lost to SY&b online 16-14, but we're talking about their LAN record. Actually, I didn't count SteelSeries GO up there since it wasn't international, but if we count that to, then it's 33-0-0 on LAN.
2012-12-02 23:27
aha haha i thought that was lan brate =D
2012-12-02 23:32
Greece her-1g 
it should count..SK's record is from all lan its 33-0-0 then
2012-12-02 23:39
Actually, scratch that. I took reakq's 17-0-0 from the team ranking and added to that, but those were matches, not maps. So, in case we count matches, they are 29-0-0 and if we count maps they have 41-0-0.
2012-12-03 00:00
Greece her-1g 
holy shit 41-0-0 already? 6 more to reach SK
2012-12-03 01:00
Thats true, but NiP joined early thor qual just to play around like against sy_b how serious was it? a full team of ninjas running around with scouts ^^
2012-12-03 20:11

2012-12-02 23:28

2012-12-02 23:31
yes, vs Western Wolves and vs WRTT WRTT was banned but i don't know why match vs Western Wolves isn't in stats
2012-12-02 23:35
yeah they were banned, but not charget for cheating? so they got kicked out of the turney, but they said that they found no cheat.....
2012-12-03 13:01
they found a text document when searching for organner, that said thanks for your purchase and so on... but nothing enough to proof. But the admins lost the trust in the team after putting so much hours into looking at the demos. A admin said that they checked 455 rounds..
2012-12-03 20:15
its was A joke on the stream?!

NiP won with only 3 of their players since fifflaren and friberg got wasted after celebrating fiffcarried's bday last night. GJ f0rp, Xizt, GTR and the two new random players.
2012-12-02 23:16
Fiff and friberg didn't had most frags but i gotta say they won several important clutch rounds.
2012-12-02 23:18
Fifflaren was awesome in the final tho lol

2012-12-02 23:18
the match wasn't over yet at the time of posting, it's changed now
2012-12-02 23:23
What I saw in this tournament is that NiP is still godlike, there are more and more good competitive teams, awesome players not only the 1.6ers, and that ESC is getting better and better.
2012-12-02 23:16
NBK and Ex6TenZ need to step up abit and stop saying - this + that... VG are pretty good still the only team who have a chance again NiP.
2012-12-02 23:16
Ex6TenZ does the calls, im pretty sure nbk will be stepping up soon. I hope so.
2012-12-03 13:03
So frustrating watching VG vs NiP... never seen a team lose so many silly situations. Take that eco round where RPK smashed 3 of NIP before they both ran in like fucking john rambo and died. Or the 3 or 4 anti eco rounds they lost. Individually i think they're probably just as good as NiP, they just do stupid shit constantly against them.
2012-12-02 23:16
+1 they will see the demos from the match, they will see the errors they made,then they will prevent thoose errors i think. when they manage to do all that,thoose stupid errors, we will have a huge match between thoose guys. In the last matches i saw NiP vs Random team, in this one i saw NiP vs VG with some kind of stupid plays but a real strong team.
2012-12-02 23:24
That can`t be fixed just by watching demos.
2012-12-02 23:29
some mistakes yes. They need to get more experience.
2012-12-02 23:59
NiP cs 1.6 trio is already far past that stage. Most of VG players won`t catch up with that, because even if they`re strong team, but in CSGO its back to basics- individual play. However VG comes from CSS, where main role is for tactics instead, but in CSGO individual play is what matters most and as you can see they`re not on top at it. So many advantageous situations turns into losing rounds for VG and I`m not talking just about VG vs NiP.
2012-12-03 00:15
Yes, your right. I saw at least 3 rounds, that could be VG rounds, and they lost by stupid ways, i think with more experience , they will stop doing those mistakes. And thoose anti-eco rounds, wow, i dont know how they do that.They won pistol-round and loose a gun round against pistols. dont know In css i think they would make thoose mistakes, but, with such aim they had in css, they could fix it with aim.
2012-12-03 19:41
Two things. First, while VG would be gaining new experience, what do you think NiP would be doing meanwhile? Waiting for them to catch up? Second, am not really sure what aim VG guys had back in source, but do you have any idea what aim GTR, forest and Xizt had in 1.6? P.S: VG won't know what hit them once Navi and ESC get a hang of this game.
2012-12-03 22:50
1st-VG can gain more exp by playing vs Nip/ESC/Navi ,than NiP. 2nd-i dont know what game you saw, but i only saw exp. talking in the game NiP vs VG, you cant see way better aim now, like before, in terms of aim, VG are catching NiP . RPK you could say that is the one who has the better aim in VG right now, and he can put a fight in aim against forest/gtr i think IMO. P.S. why VG won't know what hit them ? aer they machines/robots? they dont make mistakes? Theres no one better then them? wow i forgot they came from 1.6, so they are better from the css guys. lol
2012-12-06 08:53
I read your reply seriously till the last part. Now I know ..
2012-12-17 16:50
Well not, i would say ex6tence is aim wise even worse than fliff. And get_right was doing some pretty stupid shit too, jumping around etc.
2012-12-02 23:25
+1 So sad to see them loose, when RpK makes such a big play. The guy is fucking insane
2012-12-02 23:26
If anything then I saw RpK as one of worst from VG when it comes to decsion making in dangerous situations.
2012-12-02 23:32
whaaaaaaat? Are you kidding me? Did you not see the huge plays he did? He was fucking insane man. Did some crazy shots They need to use SmithZz's awp abilities more cause he was crazy with the awp in css.
2012-12-02 23:43
Probably not, lost internet connection, therefore couldn`t watch first map.

Shoutouts to pre written articles. Im goin to complete the retarded saucer mentality and say that for vg to beat nip they need to bring three 1.6ers. I mean its sad enough that inferno was rpk vs nip and fifflaren was able to clutch twice.
2012-12-02 23:17
Greece her-1g 
no need about 1.6 players they just need scream and shox :)
2012-12-02 23:28
Hope that forces nip to kick flif and get a good awper otherwise he will only be useful as a "newbie" in dreamteam. But as i said before i was talking about the retard saucers that say nip only with cuz of their bots/saucers.

I was the only one who saw VG strong? NiP even more ofc, but some mistakes at inferno cost VG the match. I dont understand why VG win pistol round and loose against and eco next, they should do the pistol round twice . But VG playd very well, no doubts that they are the team who can take off the leadership from NiP. Gtr and forest, hmm i dont have any words to describe thoose guys,they are like robots made for kill, they dont make mistakes . GG both
2012-12-02 23:19
do the pistol push in midle when they have weapons vs eco lol u dumb
2012-12-02 23:47
VG can easily contend for #1 place if NiP refuse to make lineup changes. But not only VG, also all the other teams are catching up.. 2013 should be interesting. GG btw
2012-12-03 00:42
The first competion to 1.6 they were one team who dominated ! So with Vg the victory 'll arrive one day !
2012-12-02 23:19

2012-12-02 23:39
f0rp and GTR are to much for them
2012-12-02 23:39
I like how VG gets soo much flak for placing second every time...but they beat EVERY other team just like NIP does. Give them a little credit. edit: I don't care if in 2013 other teams will be better. Right at this moment they are the second best team.

I should apologize to myDGB lineup, they quite surprised me. Really nice result, and wish you a good luck in future events. What makes it better- it was a lan event
2012-12-02 23:54
only 14 matches to go!
2012-12-02 23:58
K:D stats somewhere?
2012-12-02 23:58
prolly no where. I think needs some server log or something to get K/D. :\
2012-12-03 00:07 there u go mate!(whole tournament stats only)
2012-12-03 01:33
VeryGames is good , but they are not getting any better and it's a big problem because soon teams such as mouz, Area51, Lemondogs and others will become stronger and then they will not be in their "safe" 2nd place anymore. They need to take it to the next level as soon as possible .. they are not even close to beat NiP atm, and they are the only team who faced them so much @ finals..

Well said.
2012-12-03 00:31
*sigh* it happened again isn't it. Makes me sad :[ And if someone from VeryGames reading this know that even on THERE ARE people who cheer for you and wish you all the best. Afterall when lurppis and users of this site were badmouthing CSGO you were the ones who asked them to give it a chance. Well played Team VeryGames :>
2012-12-02 23:59
oh gee...nip won...I was gonna watch but then....HA!
2012-12-03 00:01
why youre not publicating statistics anymore :((
2012-12-03 00:04
They had no access to the servers or something, thats why there's no statistic neither there was a dreamteam.

Verygames literally threw that second map away, was extremely frustrating to watch them play like retards.
2012-12-03 00:15
They just couldn`t keep up. No need to blame.
2012-12-03 00:31
so lurppis what do u think about this shit?:D

Seriously, these other teams need to step it the hell up, I haven't even been watching these 2 latest tournaments because I already knew the outcome before they started...
2012-12-03 01:11
Greece her-1g 
As we discussed above NiP's map record right now is 41-0-0 (W-D-L) on lan..with 6 more wins they will reach SK's 2003 record of 47-0-0 and they will set new standards...and imagine if they had a player like rattlesnk or sgares or azk to do the awping..........
2012-12-03 01:13
You can't compare 1.5/1.6 records with CSS/CS:GO records, they're completely different games, different engines, stop it.
2012-12-03 01:19
Greece her-1g 
2012-12-03 01:32
The 1.5/1.6 records will never be beaten by any new GO record, that's what I mean. It's a new, completely different game.
2012-12-03 01:47
Greece her-1g 
1.5 and 1.6 are counter-strike is global offensive. the different engine and graphics dont tell me anything as long as counter-strike 1.6 and counter-strike: SOurce play it.
2012-12-03 01:49
wasnt it 33?
2012-12-03 01:29
Greece her-1g 
33 wins and the 2-0 counted as 1...while it is more accurate to say 41 maps the guys are awesome
2012-12-03 01:32
oh i see, yep they are sick! :)

2012-12-03 01:40
No need for news about CS:GO tournaments. Just give the money to NIP and ask them to win some matches
2012-12-03 01:41
Starting to get boring, so predictable. Love NiP as they are great guys but hoping they get beaten soon.
2012-12-03 01:43
Well I am pretty sure that will happen soon. Like you saw on this tournaments a lot of strong teams appears. eXtensive! showed real good skill and they are capable to make a lot of damage to VeryGames and NiP, then we have ESC who is every time better and better, then BuyKey who had threaten NiP in their game. Then myDGB made a lot of Damage to VeryGames but unfortunately they didn't play against NiP. k1ck pretty impressive. I think it will be more interesting in 2013 :)
2012-12-03 01:48
Greece her-1g 
SO now we have mousesports.UK, area51, lemondogs, DGB, verygames, dynamic, progaming.TD, ESC, fnatic, Navi, 3 russian teams and 3 more danish teams that chase NiP haha
2012-12-03 01:51
Well I think only NiP's advantage is they play CS:GO longer. We saw they are not untouchable but they play very good , they have team's chemistry
2012-12-03 03:08
Greece her-1g 
i feel that VG are falling down tbh i dont give them more than a month as a team. Also a51 and mouzUK will step up their game and they will improve a lot..fnatic might be good by the half of 2013 but i dont see nip falling from first place anytime soon their way too good why not i predict until april 2013 NiP area51 Verygames(with new lineup) anexis ESC Lemondogs dynamic fnatic DGB (they were really really awesome and they were worlds best in css for some time)
2012-12-03 03:17
forever 2nd is still nice prizemoney :D
2012-12-03 09:52
I think had their shine. Will split up before next tournament.
2012-12-03 10:13
Yeah same opinion for VG. I think area51 won't do a lot because they are from USA where scene is not live yet so they are not active as European teams are. are very good and there is a chance that they will make good progress. The rest of the list is also pretty amazing so next year a tons of interesting matches are coming :)
2012-12-03 12:33
Let all the retards get on the "boring" bandwagon for fuck sake. When Fnatic won everything in 1.6 was ok, when SK won everything was ok, now that NiP does it it s not ok, just one more thing for the retarded CS 1.DEAD community to cry about.
2012-12-03 01:49
2012-12-03 02:00
Boring CS:GO, always the same thing
2012-12-03 04:07
Just wait. Until 2013, because at that time we will have navi or fnatic :)
2012-12-03 05:46

looking like Navi in 2010.

not like them , some of the tournaments its was really hard for navi to fight fnatic ;] and sometimes fnatic were winning

wp again NiP, the only disappointment is I haven't yet seen a final where VG have looked themselves and fulfilled the skill they have as CS players. They're a completely different side from the one we know from CSS atm. In that second map I swear VG lost as many rounds for themselves as NiP actually won, so many odd plays n mistakes, they almost look nervous.
2012-12-03 10:08
Come on NiP why not lose inferno for the viewers....we want to see you lose some map atleast.

f0rest is the best csgo player as he is the entry fragger. Gtr is the best flanker and everyone knows you can get more kills flanking then entry fragging. Anyways insane tournament from both of them. <3 NiP
2012-12-03 10:25
Interesting NiP (The 1.6ers're dominating)
2012-12-03 11:14
GTR beast!!!! Nice NiP! lurppis awesome once again <3
2012-12-03 11:22
i think , it last tournament for NiP first place :)
2012-12-03 11:34
VG lost 2-0 again so expected, they have to step it up
2012-12-03 11:37
Go lurppis!!! , remember you have 2x admirers than haters. keep up the good work. I dont care if you get biased sometimes (and i dont ), its awesome how you read the game because casters like rizc and moE who have 0 semi-pro gaming experience make for a dreadful watch.
2012-12-03 11:37
THis is just a horrible game! I prefer reading the commentaries afterwards than watching it live. cs:go suxx
2012-12-03 12:09
2012-12-03 13:01
next tourny i will be suprised if VG will b in the final
2012-12-03 13:28
next 2 lans there is no VG attending
2012-12-04 15:15
this time VG wasn't so bad. They even had a chance of winning on inferno. But due to many 2x2 1x1 clutch rounds lost, NiP won that map.
2012-12-03 15:07
it is all about experience css players have the advantage in csgo at the beginning even scream or shox join VG they can hardly beat ESC NIP fnatic or even Navi in the future
2012-12-03 15:18
where are the demos?
2012-12-03 16:16
with dat GTR nobody will stop NiP..

2012-12-03 18:48
its cool to say after few months lol
2012-12-04 15:14
CS GO = NiP NiP = Get_right +4 pd: CS:GO = the worst cs series ever
2012-12-03 19:29
This time VG played much better than the last matches between them. No doubt about that. Despite that they still make a few mistakes that against a team like NIP it's fatal. And then NIP have a beast on there side...GeT_RiGhT.
2012-12-03 20:47
2012-12-03 23:57 team, who won the third place, is from Serbia, but you put national flag of Russia (or Slovenia or Slovakia) for this team. I can't be sure which one of these, cause the flag is too small to see clearly coat of arms). National flag of Russia/ Slovenia/ Slovakia is white-blue-red. National flag of Serbia is red-blue-white.
2012-12-05 19:05
France reakq  
Even if myDGB is a Serbian organization, they have 3 Slovakians and 2 Czechs in their line up. Because of this, the flag is Slovakian. For example, fnatic has the Danish flag (4 Danish players) whereas the organization is based in New Zealand.
