gla1ve posted a 38/36 KD on Tuesday in a series tie versus Ninjas in Pyjamas in the ESL Pro League Season 5.
A slow start giving up the first two rounds in the first half on Inferno didn't stop gla1ve from dominating in Game 1, earning a 22/17 KD and 83.5 ADR. gla1ve picked up a couple of kills and assists winning the eco round on the B-bombsite to cut the lead in half 2-1. NiP's defense was too strong in the gun round for gla1ve to counter, though he came up big in Round 5 after beating friberg in a 1-vs-1 on the B-bombsite for the ace to remain in the game. However, NiP's defense remained poised in the first half, holding off gla1ve for the 9-6 lead. The second half was all Astralis, as gla1ve contributed to the seven-round stance holding off NiP's offense as gla1ve led in kills for a 13-9 lead. Although NiP managed to rebel and steal three rounds, Astralis had enough of a lead to take the game 16-12. Game 2 gla1ve struggled on the defense as he faced a grueling 6-0 deficit, unable to capitalize on odd-man situations or individual trade kills. However, after a close Round 7 as Astralis won their first round in the half, gla1ve marched back into the game with a comeback to take the half 8-7. The offensive side of Astralis was no match for NiP's defense on Cache, as gla1ve struggled to open the bombsites to gain the advantage in the late game and close the series 16-12 in favor of NiP. gla1ve earned a 16/19 KD and 66.5 ADR during Game 2 on Cache.
