before I would make fun of faze being choke clan, that was the golden one but now I feel sad for them, they cant even choke anymore, they just get destroyed by trash teams lol look at the tactical game of faze, WTF is this calling by niko?!?!?! is almost like theres no "reading" of the enemy, he just choses random tactics or defaults and just try to do it lol, its ridiculous, wtfffff he is so trash niko's ego kicked karrigan of the team, look choke clan with niko as igl now OMEGALUL thoughs about it? #chokeclanLUL #znajder_1_major_chokeclan_0_major #FREEGUARDIAN #raindidnothingwrong #save_olof_ffs #RescueAdrenMovement

His skill is unbelievable but as much as he brought mouz further in the old times he destroyed them as being a bad IGL and with his tilt toxic ego. Now he began to do the same with FaZe
2019-03-12 15:52
how do you know anything about his "tilt toxic ego" and bad IGLing? are you a part of the team? do you know what he is saying? do you know how the other feel? who says that nikos behaviour has a negative effect on the other guys? have you talked with them?
2019-03-12 23:32

First of all you don't need to be an expert that he is a shit IGL. Thats too obvious. His strats are: Teammates go kill (not even a joke). Second of all you can see how he goes tilt always when they lose a round they shouldn't have like against Pistols or a force. Then often he falls behind and rolls his head. Also look at this iconic beauty youtube.com/watch?v=14IcnfzH-5k And you can see his ego by seeing how on the last teams he was, he kinda got the IGL kicked for him to take over the IGL role while he is shit at it. I think a change was needed but to take over the IGL role entirely away of Finn during the London Major from one day to another. That speeks for itself. Doesn't mean that i hate him tho or that i think he is a horrible person or whatever as i don't know him in reallife. But those are facts that he is a bad IGL (not a shame as he is a beast skillwise, just shouldn't go IGL), that he goes tilt easily and that he has a big ego.
2019-03-13 00:26
"His strats are: Teammates go kill (not even a joke)." again, why the fuck are you acting like you know how they actually communicate? i swear to god most of you garbage bots havent even played this game on a decent level and yet you are think you have the slighest clue about the strats, chemistry or involvement of the coach. so do yourself a favour, stfu and stop embarrassing yourself with this bullshit

Do you even watch their games? Their strats look like MM strats or something. They are not creative, the same old default strats and they don't even work. Of course, we wouldn't know what's going on inside the team, but from the outside, Niko doesn't look like a good in-game leader
2019-03-13 02:13
ah ok didnt know its only possible to win in this game by having 10000 different creative strats. thx for enlighten me. and i guess you also totally know that niko is forcing them to play this way, and its totally not possible that everyone is actually communicating and maybe feeling confident in playing this way? sry bro i totally forgot you are another person with some special inside, but thx for sharing your really interesting and relevant opinion

Were you dropped as a child? I literally just said I'm not sure if there is an internal problem that is not Niko's fault, but even if there was, it would be the IGL's job to keep them all in check and make sure they are working together as a job. I also never said they need to come up with 100 creative strats like GOB B, but even IGLs that had a loose play style like F0rest and tarik back in C9, were more creative than Niko's garbage strats.
2019-03-13 02:27
"it would be the IGL's job to keep them all in check and make sure they are working together as a job." no that is literally the job of the coach lmao. also they arent 12yo kids who arent allowed to share their opinion an speak up for themselves anyway. like i said before, you so obvious you morons have no clue how pro teams work and im not sure why im wasting my time educating prejudging morons anyway.

Right, breathing heavily in the mic out of disappointment motivates his teammates. Also you should learn to read, as i said thats not all but i'm to Lazy and also i won't waste my Time to link you hundreds of clips. I linked you 3 as an example. Also screaming shut up so loud at your mate that you can hear it loud in stream is really good as an IGL right? He is one of the best Players this game has seen, but his strength doesn't lie in being an IGL
2019-03-13 10:16
"Right, breathing heavily in the mic out of disappointment motivates his teammates." nah you are right it totally tilts everybody, especially if you are a shitty snowflake. your clips are proving nothing but how desperately you hate on him because in your dreamworld he is destroying teams. can you prove it? no. can you bias your opinion on 3 completely useless clips? yes. you are obviously garbage at this game and you havent ever played on a decent level in a decent team yet you feel the need to talk about those things, so how about you are trying to get a hobby instead of spreading your bullshit

Niko is a bad igl because he gets worse results than karrigan, despite having more talent in his team. Karrigan was winning tournaments with xizt. Niko now has more talent than karrigan ever had, and faze are doing worse than ever
2019-03-13 11:10
player x won more than y and because of that he is a better igl is not how things work but ok. pronax won 3 majors and even had devilwalk on his team yet nogood team would consider playing with him, right? also they have a new coach and a new player and played how many tournaments together? they are playing worse because they are not playing to their potential even under karrigan. guardian is inconsistent as fuck, olof and rain have been horrible for a pretty long time (atleast rain played decent in katowice), niko isnt having as much impact as he used to and adren looks kinda lost in this team. in remember him being teamflashed in different rounds while taking banana control against navi because he turned around to early... and he isnt a good fragger on top of that. i think faze has more problems than niko being igl
2019-03-13 12:03
Being an igl means utilizing the talent in your line up with positing your players and have them build each other up. If niko can't do that with the most skilled lineup in cs history, he is a bad igl. Did pronax do that? Yes. Did karrigan? Yes, a bit. Does niko? No, he ruined both mouz and now faze
2019-03-13 12:53
how is this the most skilled lineup in cs history lmfao. you are living in the past bro, guardian and olof are miles away from their peak. its like saying nip has 2 superstars because get right was good like 5 years ago. also saying niko ruined both mouz and faze is as retarded as saying s1mple ruined liquid and navi. both carried their teams to relevancy to begin with so what are you even talking about?
2019-03-13 14:04
Oh I seem to remember mouz being top 2 after niko left? I guess you have no idea what you're talking about:3

The moment olof came back FaZe became shit. Then NiKo started to IGL and they were decent. Karrigan IGL clearly wasnt working after olof came back. But tbh I would like to see maybe AdreN IGL so NiKo could be able to become the best player in the world.

Indeed, the problem is everybody else put him on this pedestal too. If they kick Niko they will lose a ton of fans, if they kick Niko and dont improve, they will look like blatant idiots. I really think the only fix is to get a proper IGL and a coach that can tell Niko he aint a shit worth more than any of the other players and he needs to know his place.

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.

2019-03-12 15:54
Old clips of teamspeak where he is toxic and the fact that he took the IGL over Karrigan and kicked him of the team.
2019-03-12 15:59
1) old clips where he is toxic, literally only clip was the "shat ap" situation, which was justifiable 2) pretty sure it was a team and management decision to remove karrigan, NiKo was the best option in the team to be IGL so he became IGL :P
2019-03-12 16:05
1) Ok. 2)”best option” xd
2019-03-12 16:08
you think guardian/rain/olofm would be better igls? obviously they have tried other people calling, if niko didn't do it the best he wouldn't be calling right now, what other options do they have?
2019-03-12 16:35
FaZe has a shit ton of money, why wouldn’t they buy a actually good IGL? My thought is that Niko wanted to lead and this is how everything went. Still, I respect him from all the hard work that he puts in the game. If he was more humble, he would understand that this roster is done and would step out for his own good and for the sake of his teammates
2019-03-12 16:44
buy who? name a few good english speaking IGL's who you think would have decent chemistry with the faze guys, literally only mediocre ones available

you can't be serious with fucking msl flusha doesn't want to igl chrisj would be interesting, but I doubt Niko would respect him enough considering their past Golden.. interesting as well, although I don't think he'd be able to keep Niko in check there's not much choice tbh
2019-03-12 18:06
proof that flusha doesn’t want to IGL? MSL>Niko at IGLing and he would not have to worry about strats anymore, so he would play better. Your 2 last points just prove what I said in #16, Niko’s arrogance will prevent him from winning a major
2019-03-12 18:10
cant take u seriously xd there is no proof that niko is arrogant/toxic
2019-03-12 18:43
“Keep Niko in check” And you said that doubt that Niko respect him, this just proved that you knows that he was toxic at Mouz, just ignore it because he’s your favorite player. Fuck off, man.

no one in this scene is good enough igl to compete against astralis. Every IGL in EU is either can't frag or braindead igl.
2019-03-12 16:54
Yeah, the scene is shit and Astralis are very thankful to the other players to make horrible shuffles over and over again
2019-03-12 17:17
If anything,choking in major ginals is what stops him from winning a major,same with s1mple. But how things are going he wont reach a major final in the foreseeable future

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.

Have you seen the tacs g0d niko is calling? It's trash.

you're right, they are trash. but we got to this point because of everything else that I said..NiKo is so desperate to figure out how to get over the hump and win again that he will take the IGL role. With the other 3 guys on board. NiKo is a leader the way he plays the game, whether he should be calling or not he is a leader. The other 3 have always been passive followers. Guardian is like a sloth, no way he could IGL. Olof is like a koala bear, no way he could IGL. Rain could potentially IGL and is probably the best option of the current 5 but it's never been a thought. they should cut AdreN loose and pickup flusha when he is ready to come back. flusha was IGL in c9 and while they are/were a joke of a team, he has proven capable in that position. I could see this really igniting a fire under the guys, especially flusha himself. they'd probably have a 6 month period of being unstoppable(-Astralis) before it all starts to fall apart again.

He still lives in 2015 NiKo is the player that keep his team alive. If you want to win every1 have to frag while Guardian, olof bottomfrag. They added adren and people think its same faze...

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.

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
2019-03-12 17:43
Doesn’t change the fact that NiKo is a shitty IGL
2019-03-12 17:56

2019-03-12 18:10
Ofc it does. He actually believes he’s good at it. He should have passed the role to someone else a long time ago. Every day he’s still IGLing for FaZe is another day he’s ruining FaZe.

2019-03-12 17:53
totally agree
2019-03-12 17:57
oh right so instead of trying to work out as a team, you kick the igl and put a guy who has no idea about calling as igl OMEGALUL also karrigan practice how much with envy? and look at envy lineup LOL no time + shit players karrigan is a IGL that stayed on the top since 2015 with 23489234089234 different types of lineups, always finding a way to work.

2019-03-12 23:23
ayy lmaoo did you even watched the final, karrigan made really bad calls second half and the 30th round was rotation 10 seconds too late to b site
2019-03-12 23:35
still, choko always chokes on big games, he lost so many stupid clutches against SK lol he is a GOAT in groupstage, always on point, crazy shit, one taps etc on big games = wiffing taps, bad decisions, going truh smokes without reason, etc lol karrigan is igl, theres no tactics if no one is hitting shots and u team is getting rekt by tarik xD
2019-03-12 23:56
amazing mind brother, wish i could once see a movie through your eyes!

just facts if you dont agree that niko plays 100000000000x better on groupstage over the yeasr, next to him playing finals against SK, astralis etc, you are just blind lol or you dont pay attention while watching cs and want to talk shit xd
2019-03-12 23:59
wtf men i said karrigan sucks and you start writing lovehate messages about niKo
2019-03-13 04:27
thats because niko fucked up the same way in 2 teams now on the other hand karrigan adapted a lot of different lineups on different metas to a good level of cs, thats why niko destroyed the team, not karrigan

2019-03-13 00:08
nah thinking you are too good and everyone is dumb = huge ego, a huge ego can be your worst enemy look at coldzera, guy was by far the best 2 years in a row, never acted like that, same for olof, gtr, snax, etc not even s1mple did shit like that lol, niko without realizing just sabotage the whole project by himself XD

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.
2019-03-13 02:47

Even I like you I disagree. If not NiKo olof's Major play'off streak would end . karrigan was the problem LIVE WITH IT!
2019-03-13 09:47
with karrigan at least they had a chance to adjust and be decent, karrigan was the problem cuz niko stopped respecting him,and made the team lose faith in the igl not even fallen or gla1ve could guide a team to victory without being respected =)

theres no igl better than karrigan atm, if niko didnt respect karrigan, he will not respect any igl, just a matter of the team losing 1 or 2 close bo3's, and he will do the same, too much ego
2019-03-13 15:05

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.
