Niko igl = the old joke about "NA CS LUL"
I think Niko is an amazing player but FaZe really need a proper IGL instead for Niko :(
karrigan is not a good igl but way better than niko
NiKo's strats go like this;
NiKo - "Everybody push out of this choke point and do some damage, I'll come in from behind and kill them all"
*Everybody pushes out and dies*
NiKo - "Okay, I'll just ace clutch it"
*Kills 4 wounded enemies and dies*
NiKo - "WTF team?!?!? I have a 4 k/d, why you not helping me???"
*Faze lose 16-0, NiKo goes 48-16*
HLTV kids think he's amazing because his stats are good!
NiKo is pretty good and dedicated to the game, sadly, he was really toxic and has a huge ego, these factors will never let him win a major, it’s just the same history of s1mple, but people praise the second because gay ukrainians blind them with their fanboisism. Disband is the only solution to FaZe, Olof is washed up, so does inconsistent GuardiaN and AdreN isn’t a tier1 player. Even rain, the goat himself, isn’ playing well. That’s a big oof for FaZe and is clear that this core will never work ever again.
NiKo is the only reason FaZe isn't tier 3...he joined the org and they became one of top teams in world.
Not his fault that - Karrigan fell apart as player. Olof took extended break for injury ruining entire team chemistry. Rain has fallen apart as player. Guardian has fallen apart as player.
Essentially the entire team has played like shit for over 6 months now. It's on all of them. Not just NiKo.
yeah because it was definitely his choice to kick karrigan right? xd
To be honest I think NiKo have to much ego right now. They need a IGL that can put NiKo in his place and stop doing what he wants
+1, just like s1mple destroyed Na'vi )))
It's kinda sad that old FaZe with Jkaem, Aizy, allu ECT. is better than the FaZe of recent with NiKo, Olof, GuardiaN.
Still better than bot karrigan, but yeah -niko + any decent igl.
GuardiaN so flimsy, he can't do any sequence of good matches..
NiKo is not the problem, he do all he can.. amazing deagle shots, taps with the 47 but he needs something new.. A new AWPer can do a good difference with those guys.
Iarenthinkthatz comes up with facts. Choko has to leave or give smb else a chance to IGL. GOAT thread, GOAT user, too smart for this forum and knows cs is a team-based game. Can’t say the same about 90% of this site which consists of Choko and s0mple fanboys thinking cs is an individual game lmao
NiKo is trash IGL, but great fragger
Let me weigh in on this discussion.
I really like niko as a player not so much as an igl.
I don't agree with most of the statements of niko being toxic. Back during london major faze were 0-2 and karrigan gave up calling and niko took it and got them to semi finals. His calling is extensive but people suggesting that he calls for plays that centres around himself is complete rubbish.
He doesn't always take the single weapon on ecos, he doesn't force buy whilst his team ecos, he doesn't tilt at his team when he sees them making dumb plays. He tilts when he himself has done something wrong. That's just passion not ego.
Now niko as an igl. Someone needs to take this role and take out olof. Niko is a heavy fragger and the igl makes the responsiblity too great. I would say take ChrisJ or Ange1or nbk or find an exceptional igl youngster like astralis when they took glaive a relatively low tier igl playing high level Cs.
jesus all these fucking retards calling niko toxic based on what? shat ap clip? lmao. "niko doesnt listen to igl" he did listen to karrigan until things didnt work and they obviously needed a change, I do agree on niko shouldnt be IGL but dont call him a toxic player with high ego
Thats true niko ego kills faze
idk why niko thinks he can igl
all hes good at is aiming. he should just stick to his position
Who would have guessed it would be a thread from one of the most retarded hltv users lmao... NiKo certified hater.
RobbaN as coach couldn't help shit with karrigan to keep them on first place like zonic does = niko destroyed faze
team with olof away for months and having to play with stand-ins and olof comes back worst = niko destroyed faze
team lost faith in karrigan after 0-2 at the major = niko destroyed faze
no IGL available at that time in the market and niko was the only one who did it before and could do it = niko destroyed faze
rain never been able to recover his old form = niko destroyed faze.
so expected from tier10 user that can't use his brain and make threads to bait fans
nikos ego kicked karrgain...
karrigans map pool went to shit
nearly every team were able to read his calls
he couldnt frag well until the major when niko started calling...
and then he went to envy and couldnt even call well in an NA minor
Destroyed? Yet he carried Faze on cache vs VP. If not him, VP would've 2-1 Faze.
All FaZe need is a proper IGL, NiKo can't be the star player and Igl at the same time, ChrisJ needed.
Hltv retards thinking NiKo can IGL while getting another star player e.g. s1mple
OMEGALUL this is why a proper IGL is needed and not star players with amazing stats
"Destroyed FaZe" implying that FaZe was something b4 NiKo joined LUL
FaZe really needs to get an sport psychologist and new igl, (Golden, MSL). They should look at Astralis and copy their preparation etc. Since they have a lot of money to fund the team. I also think that MSL will transfer into great leader like gla1ve, since he shown some signs in Dreamhack Stockholm 2018, where North won the event against Astralis and MSL got the MVP medal.
Kick niko asap he is like shox. To think niko can igl and be a star at the same time lul. His genetics came from NA ? i can't look when he is ruining olofmeisters guardians and rains career
They have not won a tournament till NiKo joined the team so try again thank you.
To be honest they looked even more terrible before they kicked Karrigan, so I'm pretty sure there's more to it.
Even I like you I disagree. If not NiKo olof's Major play'off streak would end . karrigan was the problem LIVE WITH IT!
He is not even supposed to be the IGL. It´s not his fault it´s the fault of the org. They just need to find a decent igl and kick Adren.
same happened to mousesports with niko, i thinks he is too stubborn and full of himself that he thinks he can do it all but he obviously cant
Dude it's funny that before, when Karrigan was on the team, everyone was like "kick Karrigan blablabla", so i don't fkin understand why everyone is blaming it all on NiKo. Sure he is the igl and he should be having different decisions in game when it comes to tactics. In my opinion they should have maybe waited a little longer with Karrigan.
The thing with NiKo seems to be that his task of being IGL and still trying to achieve everything as a player is becoming his downfall. He could do one or another, but not both, atleast not right now. Communication vice they are in okay-ish shape and the players enjoy playing with each other, there hasn't been talks like back in the day with mouz that there were occasional fighting among team members.
Puggish style fits FaZe kind of team with insane firepower, but the communication has to improve in order for players to get synergy. In the recent tournaments you can clearly see when FaZe plays, that they peak 1 by 1. There's no refrag potential, no nothing. Sometimes they succeed in their hero plays, but they cannot rely on that alone. I wouldn't swap NiKo off from being IGL, rather ease his job a bit.
shut up niko destroys your mother if he wants to
Why everyone think niko has big ego. I see a humble man
Hes amazing igl to be honest.
People saying, save NiKo plss. But guys this is like mousesports, is they want to improve they will need a real IGL, and stop with niko's ego.
i love him for his individual skill, but i hate the fact he´s igl now and that he´s such a toxic boi
+1 , the truth who people are being pussy to say.
+1 absolutely true but i still think they can bounce back
