If we would actually be top1, faze would actually do good in tournaments, but he is not s1mple so faze is doing shit
2019-07-16 23:21
although niko obviously isnt top 5 that logic is flawed s1mple has electronic niko has no one, guardian is shit this year

yeah, i like rain, it make me think and just all round love the rain, just mother nature at its finest.
2019-07-17 00:35
yeah ive heard about him hes that washed up player who is 60% of electronic

Thats impressive, didnt know anyone could be so far upp their own ass as to not be able to see how a player is doing good, carrying games pretty often yet still be called shit by clueless morons. You sir, take the cake, congratulations.
2019-07-17 06:49
Hahahah here come the guardian flairs Guardian sucks this year btw

The last time when NiKo played a really bad event was a qualification to ECS(online crap), the rest were absolutely godlike, good and just average. Now check out how fatdian is carrying FaZe. No godlike events, he was just good, average and absolutely terrible. Wake up, this is not 2015 anymore.
2019-07-18 11:11
I think YOU sir, need to wake up.. check the stats for every event, check the impact that guardian has had, then come talk to me.
2019-07-18 11:20
Russia mmmmmmajestic 
I didnt even mention that NiKo would have more impact if he played as an AWP instead of Guardian, s1mple is the best example that hybrid AWPers are more effective than dedicated ones. Dont get me wrong, i dont hate Guardian, he's really good and is probably the 2nd best player in FaZe but you guys always overrate him.

Navi is doing better dude, ever since they lost trust in karrigan they have been dogshit
2019-07-17 00:33
they still have won tournaments in-between, navi didnt
2019-07-17 13:09

in between? you mean that one blast pro where liquid choked lololol, in the major they just got destroyed, in cologne they got destroyed, in starseries they got destroyed,
2019-07-17 15:21
and navi always gets destroyed. and it doesn't matter how much you get clapped as long as you win some. and therefore navi is a joke.
2019-07-17 17:42
Finland Jodecast 
Navi won starseries, a much bigger tournament than what faze won lol In any other tournament except blast, navi will go futher than faze, it has already been proven at the major and the other tournaments
2019-07-17 19:12
true, starseries is bigger, but faze have won 2 tournaments this year as they have also taken over the eleague tournament, which probably makes them #6 and not #8 like navi. and overall they havent had better results in 2019, dunno whatcha say.
2019-07-17 19:18
Finland Jodecast 
Eleague? Tournament with 4 crap teams, dude the only reason why navi is for the moment lower ranked than faze is because they havent played in all tournaments, and one of the factors that determines the rank is activity There is no way that faze has done better than navi in 2019, -Navi won a way better tournament than faze -They did way better at the major -they did way better at the second biggest tournament of the year

NiKo is overrated this year, not even top 5 rn imo
2019-07-16 23:23
But he plays very well in every position in the game. although there was no igl on the team, he led his team
2019-07-16 23:30
United States SlenderHD 
He does play very well i dont disagree with that, i just think this year there is too much Competition when it comes to the best player, do you find yourself confident in saying NiKo is better than s1mple, Zwyoo, EliGE, or twistzz and NAF?
2019-07-16 23:32
It makes sense, but those players you wrote can't be a NiKo.

When he is peaking he is better than EliGE, twistzz and NAF. S1mple and zywoo are the only ones with higher peaks.

“Play well” it’s not to be the best in the world Mind changed

NiKo playing well is no surprise, he almost always does, however he's nowhere near number 1 atm. What do I base this on? His stats this year, him not being enough of a driving factor to win, the games they do win are when olof and rain have decent performances. NiKo dropping a 30 bomb against say BiG doesn't instantly make him number 1 when there's elige, zywoo, s1mple and electronic who all have more impact on the games they play, granted they do have more help, but that doesn't take anyhing away from their superior overall performance.
2019-07-16 23:41
Hey, I'm a FaZe fan too but seriously I love the guy but his prime was the end of 2017 beginning of 2018 and only now is he coming back to form again. Unfortunately, I expect his ranking to probably barely break the top 5 this year.

He got fantastic aiming and precision (the best in the world), but cs go is more than just that. To me he is a top 5 player but still not better than the likes of zywoo or simple.

United States jay_320 
Mechanically he is a top 3 player in the world. Simple and Zywoo have probably surpassed him. Elige in terms of achievements is probably going to be ahead of everyone by the time years end comes in terms of wins, mvps and evps. And he's really not that far behind Niko in terms of pure mechanical skill although he's not as good. Twistzz might be though. Only other player I'd bring up in this debate would be Electronic especially because he's such a banger on the T side but he seems to have fallen off the map. So no Niko isn't the best player by any metric. He's almost like Forest. Always extremely good sometimes god-like but there was always one or two players (Get Right and Neo in this example) that were ahead of him. That's nothing to be ashamed of though. You could absolutely build a winning team around Niko. The problem is that the IGL to do it doesn't exist right now. You never know with Faze though maybe they buyout Cold and Valde and cut Oloph and Neo. I think Valde is going to be an excellent IGL and he's a good enough player Niko might be ok listening to him.

yeah ill change ur mind. just because a player has had good stats forsnt mean they can be put as the best player Last year simple was put at #1 because navi showed good results in many of their tournaments. Lets say that simple had a rating of 1.5 yet navi didnt do well in any tournaments. Hltv will definitely not put him at #1 because of the lack of results. This year faze has done pretty shit in most if not all of their tournaments with the exception of a blast pro tournament which was a fluke.

There is only one player better than Niko and that is s1mple. zywoo is the only other one that comes close. it’s hard to play well when you literally have to play every role on your team.

Yeah s1mple is allowed to bait 4 other players, Niko actually has to entry. If Niko played s1mples role on Navi he would have a way better rating than s1mple.
