NiP force Faceit and Anonymo for a final card rematch
Polish club Anonymo has made an official statement about the scandalous match against NIP on Flashpoint 3. According to the published information, the team is under pressure to replay the game, in which the Swedish team had technical problems and resulted in a loss.
Currently, we are under pressure from both Ninjas in Pyjamas and the organizers of Flashpoint 3. They want us to replay the match, which took place on May 14, 2021. At the first timeout (when the score was 1-1) we offered to reschedule the game, given the technical problems of NIP, but they refused.
Soon after this statement has been published on Twitter the organizers of Flashpoint 3 announced a rematch of the Anonymo vs NIP last map. The published statement says that the Swedish organization has provided enough evidence of a problematic Internet connection during the game, so a replay of the match is justified. The date of the match will be provided at a later date.
Recall that after the match Anonymo - NIP in Flashpoint 3, which ended 2-1 on maps in favor of the Polish team, representatives of the Swedish organization said that they encountered technical problems during the game - players experienced pack losses up to 40% throughout the BO3 series. Ninjas in Pyjamas management criticized the organizers of the European RMR tournament for the unresolved problems and the refusal to host the game on a third-party server.
