TyLoo faced NiP as their opponents in the second round of the swiss format new challengers' stage of FACEIT Major: London 2018. Coming into the second round with a victory against Gambit on Inferno yesterday, the Chinese support was strong along with the team's confidence and morale.

But NiP strode in to take their second win in a row as they beat TyLoo ‘16-12’ on Inferno.

Close But Not Quite Enough

The pistol round was secured by NiP playing from T-side but TyLoo retaliated immediately through a spectacular triple kill by ‘Mo’ equipped with a Desert Eagle.

TyLoo took the lead taking 3 more rounds in a row but NiP found its way back into the game drawing the scores at ‘4-4’. The two teams went head-to-head, drawing the scores at the end of every alternate round but NiP took the slight edge over the Chinese as they finished with a score of ‘8-7’ at halftime. 

NiP opened the other half by taking the second pistol round as well, with a fantastic triple headshot kill by ‘REZ’ operating a USP-s. From here on forward, NiP took 4 rounds in a row, stopping everything that TyLoo threw their way. But TyLoo was finally able to find a chink in the NiP’s defence that won them 5 consecutive rounds, bringing them one round shy of drawing the scores again. 

NiP changing their tactics played a magnificent round as they won without losing a single player on their side and continued to take the remainder of the rounds, winning the match with a score of ‘16-12’.

With this TyLoo loses its first match of the tournament as NiP remain one win away from qualifying onto the next stage.
