Rakes in kills during big win
April 21, 2018
dennis went 57/52 during Ninjas in Pyjamas 2-1 victory against mousesports at DreamHack Marseille.
ANALYSIS
dennis was on fire in this series and it allowed NiP to pick up a win over one of the best teams in the tournament. Despite only having two kills after six rounds, dennis really turned it on before long. He picked up a quad kill in Round 11, which was a sign of things to come. They may not have won the game, but a lot of dennis' pressure ending up paying off as the series progressed. He put up multi-kills with impressive ease in the next two games to give NiP the win. In particular, he tallied a huge 4k in Round 23 that put them on the road to victory.
Leads his team to victory

f0rest tallied a 52/51 KD during Ninjas in Pyjamas' 2-1 win over mousesports at DreamHack Marseille.
ANALYSIS
While NiP seemed to struggle a bit in this series, f0rest was always there to keep his team calm and collected. They lost the first game after being unable to string much together, but once things switched to Overpass, NiP really got down to business and took over. Both f0rest and draken were on fire in that match to push this team ahead and push the series to a third game. Train was the closest game of the bunch, as both teams were on top of their game. NiP may have started off rough, but they won six straight to get right back into the thick of it. After they battled back and forth during the rest of the game, f0rest put his team on match point with a nice double kill in Round 27.

f0rest went 22/17 as Ninjas in Pyjamas took out SK Gaming 16-13 at DreamHack Marseille.
ANALYSIS
f0rest showed off shades of his former self in this big win over SK Gaming. He opened with a double in the opening pistol and added in an ace in Round 3 to give his team a 3-0 lead. That was a sign of things to come, as he ended up with a cool 12 kills after the first seven rounds. While SK made a bit of run in the rest of the first half, it was all f0rest and NiP in the second half. This allowed NiP to overcome SK and send the Brazilians into the losers' side of the group.

From there, he was showing up frequently to keep SK bogged down. The Brazilians may have made a bit of a run in the second half, but REZ continued putting up some solid frags to get his team the win in the end.
Huge plays seal victory against SK
April 18, 2018
GeT_RiGhT came up big when his team needed him most with his 17/20 KD in their win over SK Gaming at DreamHack Marseille.
ANALYSIS
GeT_RiGhT might have started out on the wrong foot in this game, with only three kills to his name after 12 rounds, but he more than made up for it in the end. With SK threatening to make a second-half comeback, GeT_RiGhT popped right back up with a 3k in Round 21 and a key kill on NiP's Round 29 eco round that ended up winning them the game. More of this from GeT_RiGhT, and NiP could be in for a nice time at this tournament.
