The team recently announced the addition of Braxton 'swag' Pierce, who was brought in to replace the departing Eric 'adreN' Hoag. Days after that move it was revealed that Todd 'anger' Williams would be going in the opposite direction, leaving his teammates to link up with compLexity. In order to fill the gap left by the player iBUYPOWER have turned their attentions to the man behind the in-game camera for the ESL, Josh 'steel' Nissan.
While most will recognise him as the ESL's observer, the Canadian born player has some pedigree having represented some of the best teams in America - and Europe - during his CS:S career. Having struggled to find a stable team in CS:GO we've seen less and less of him, but this move should see him return to the top of the pile once more.
He had this to say:
"I’m really excited to be competing in CS:GO again after a few unfortunate turn of events. EMS One really re-sparked my love for the game, and I am happy to be able to team up with a couple of my old teammates. DaZeD and I had issues in the past, but it was undisputable how good we worked together. We were able to put these issues aside about a year ago and I am happy to be on a team with him again.
I had a short, but successful stint on Team Dynamic with AZK where we had the only fully undefeated season and LAN in the history of ESEA. We also competed internationally at DSRack where we placed 2nd, just behind VeryGames. Although I haven’t personally played with swag or Skadoodle, I have seen and heard great things about them as players, and I am eager to see what we can teach each other.
I hope that this is the change that the team needs to push iBUYPOWER into the spotlight once more. Thanks for the management for having faith in myself and the team and I will try my absolute best to help in every way I can."
We have just witnessed one of the absolute most amazing Call of Duty to date.
Team Virtus.pro has sensational show run all the way through the tournament and in every match, looked incredibly strong. Now Wiktor 'TaZ' Wojtas and the rest of his troops lift the fantastic trophy in front of a packed Spodek Arena in Katowice , Poland , on the big stage.
No less than 200,000 different people so final home, and whether it was on twitch.tv or GoTV , then ESL Major Series One broken all records that Counter-Strike ever set, regardless of which version the conversation.
The losing finalist last map was de_inferno where future champions started out as CT, where they quickly got stolen pistol round off their opponent in the final, Ninjas in Pyjamas , despite the defeat, got a huge ovation after the match.
After the recovered pistol round, got Virtus.pro won the compulsory eco rounds and went on to win rounds, until they came at 6-0
NiP took then two in a row before the Poles destroyed their economy, which gave them the opportunity to gain a few more rounds, a possibility that they did not let nearly failed. When the page break was the 11-4 to Virtus.pro that simply played a perfect game of Counter-Strike, and they seemed unstoppable.
After the page break came the Swedish ninjas be back in the game and was taken five rounds in a row with a score of 11-9 . Awaited return so no longer impossible, but after a perfectly executed B-rush, led by plFilip 'Neo' Kubski, were Poles taken over the site and did not throw after planting situation in the sink.
NiP had to make a strange mix purchase of famases and M4'ere, but they pushed Swedes were not successful in the round, and Virtus.pro came at 13-9
seRichard 'Xizt' Shore Power subsequently went crazy with his Five-Seven, where he got all of three headshots and secured them the next round where ninjas were on eco.
But unfortunately for the Swedes, as was the round and the last one they got. Carefully planned smokegrenades secured Poles another round and NiP was forced into another eco ultimately killed by ninjas. 16-10 to Virtus.pro who could finally lift arms victorious
Virtus.pro 2 vs 0 NiP
MAP : de_mirage, de_inferno
This means that the Poles top the EMS One by Intel Extreme Masters Katowice , taking the first prize of $ 100,000 home with them. NiP have to settle for $ 50,000 and yet another room which they, as we know also got at Dreamhack Winter , the same prize was present.
