For statistics, I will copy my #62
"Look at K/R, much better, NiKo was 0.8, krimz was almost 0.85, thats a huge difference maker. The difference between NiKo and krimz was 0.05 and he difference between NiKo and s1mple throughout the whole year is 0.06, thats almost the same and I dont think you would consider NiKo even close to s1mple. + ADR is also clearly in krimzs favour with 88.8 while NiKo had 86.1, it may not seem like a lot but its almost 3dmg/r which is a lot in this stat, f.e. s1mple with 87.5 this year and NiKo is 2nd with 86.6, thats much closer than this (krimz is 3rd even despite dip in his form with 85.8 which is impressive). You could consider NiKo close to coldzera in 2017 but those 2 cases I stated are more dominant in favour of the other side, unlike his "fight" against cold last year."
For the achievements. I see thath you excluded fnatics win at WESG and semis at Marseille and included imaginary 11th place finish which never took a place while you included 3-4th for FaZe (at V4 so its not sth to be bragging about) but excluded 5-8th finish at Marseille. That shows your bias a lot. The context is acutally different for both teams. FaZe was n1 with no wins and fnatic was improving/rising team with 5-8th finish, then 1 bad tournament (SS S4) after which they improved immensely, won 2 tournaments and made semis at one more while FaZe were 2nd, 4th, 2nd and then 3-4th (shit competition) and then 5-8th so they were basically worse than fnatic achievement-wise since Katowice until Marseille but they were ranked n1 because of huge lead in points prior to those tournaments so considering the context and not future evolution of the teams, yes, Id take fnatic because they had better form at that time and they would be a better team for players (Swedish players ofc) to join, theoratically speaking but only after Katowice. Btw, Ive never said that flusha stealing the MVP from krimz was a bad thing or that krimz should have gotten it, no, flusha completely fully deserved it and yes, flusha stole the finals but you know what? Thats exactly what big time players do, flusha was just amazing that tournament at Katowice, basically playing at his peak once again for that tournament. FaZe werent the first team that got their tournament stolen because of flusha and it doesnt mean that they deserved the win more than fnatic.
