The Swedes from NIP got off to a flying start at BLAST Premier Fall Groups when they yesterday completely ripped BIG apart in the opening round at Group B. The swift Ninjas made short work of Johannes “tabseN” Wodarz and his troops, as they handed them two crushing 16-9 and 16-6 defeats.
The standout player was undoubtedly NIP’s Fredrik “REZ” Sterner, who ended the match with an outstanding 1.75 Rating / 118.1 ADR scoreline, including this beautiful ace on A-site Inferno.
In the post-match interview, the desk spoke with the young rifler Nicolas “Plopski” Gonzalez Zamora, where REZ also was the big talking point after his impressive showing against BIG.
- We have made some roles within the teams clearer, which means me and LNZ will basically just try to do what we can to help REZ get into his comfort zone. We will do much for him, so we can help him in the game and he can be more consistent. Then he can have these games like the one today, where we just say “REZ go kill” and then he just kills everyone, Ploski said to the desk and added:
- He’s (REZ) really good at trading. I’m obviously the entry fragger, and when we go into a site and I hear that REZ is right behind me, I know that he will always get a trade kill.
Yesterday's results mean that NIP and G2 will meet in a thrilling upper final, where the victor secures a spot at BLAST Premier Fall Final in November. The match is set to begin at 16.30 (CET) this Tuesday. MIBR and BIG clash in the late match at 19.30 (CET). You can watch both matches here on Pley.gg.
