He met the only player with an ego bigger than him. He is now only allowed to bait and flash for Cold, if he steals any kills Cold will beat him up.

He's been mediocre for his talent level for six months at this point. I don't know that Niko will ever be the player he once was. Which is a shame. Mechanically I still think he's at Simple or Zywoo's level when he's on his game.
2019-10-10 01:12
I agree that it's worrying, especially because I'd go even further and say he's the best mechanical player ever in CSGO. However, that's exactly why I'll keep believing in him. Superstars don't just vanish, he'll get his form back once FaZe stop fucking around with their lineup. Honestly, I wish 100 Thieves or CompLexity or any other org with big bucks would buy him and skilled players out and make a proper lineup.
2019-10-10 18:28
its an ego Thing -back in the days in mouz, he didnt Need to respect his teammates, so he turned into a toxic, egoistic Maniac ("shadap chrisj")-> BUT it did make him more skilled because his confidence had no growthlimits - nowadays hes surrounded by People who are more legendary than him (Cold, Olof, previously Guardian) so he cant act his old self anymore -> his confidence is suppressed
2019-10-10 01:12
You really don't know what you're talking about on the whole ChrisJ situation, it's been debunked NUMEROUS times that he wasn't telling anyone to shut up out of toxicity.
2019-10-10 01:21
SHADAP
2019-10-10 10:01
He lost his confidence probably due to results of FaZe past 8 months, now he doubts himself all the time. It happens but he can get out of it but some players never recover.

"suddenly" xaxaxaxa
2019-10-10 16:07
i think his private coder left.
2019-10-10 16:09
it's not "suddenly" he's been shit since 2018 i've been saying this for weeks
2019-10-10 16:09
it was very sudden tho, he went from a 1.15 raitng minimum to circulating around 1.00 since the ESL Pro League Season 9 Finals. Rating past 12 months on LAN: 1.16 (pretty good) Rating past 6 months on LAN: 1.13 (worse but still pretty good) Rating past 3 months on LAN: 1.01 (that's a pretty big sudden jump I'd say)
2019-10-10 18:10
True his stats have suddenly gotten worse but even when his stats were ok he still didn’t have that godlike game sense and aim that made him a superstar player. Like 2016/2017 Niko was Insanely good, I think better than s1mple at his peak even

BECAUSE he's IGL
2019-10-10 16:10
Throughout AdreN's time in FaZe NiKo was IGL if I'm not mistaken, his stats certainly don't look bad - mind you he started playing badly already with NEO IGL'ing too. hltv.org/stats/players/3741/NiKo?startDa..
2019-10-10 18:14
Bot Niko. Cant wait for the others to kick him
2019-10-10 16:11
I bet its his mouse. I've seen him change mouse like 3 times this year, he usually always uses the Zowie EC2, but then I saw him with the Zowie ZA12 and now the Zowie S2. Probably throws his aim off
2019-10-10 16:14
needs to grind on DM. not hitting his usual shots. not because of IGL matters... OFC he doesnt get the easy frags but rain is playing better than him

IGLing has just sorta ruined him overtime and maybe some lost motivation from just the state of Faze

well, everyone will eventually reach the point where their skill would just decrease, you can't stay in tip top shape forever. Or he is just having a bad time, maybe in a few weeks he will be good again

Because being an igl can ruin a player, especially a 'careless' fragger and star, plus being on a bad team has an awful effect. Players like NiKo are just worse on a bad team tbh... they play to win, and there are some supportive elements, so if everyone is playing shit, and the team has no capability, he is not just gonna play worse and not be supported if he isn't being the star, he is also gonna switch up his roles to less star based and more supportive roles. Which has fucked up his playstyle

I meant it fucked him up. Changed him, and his thoughts, and his style. Clearly it didn't click with neo, plus he took up more supportive roles since he seemed to lose the drive to destroy games. Or lost something. When he stops being igl, starts playing in an actual system (neo was bad for the team, his sub-par tactics based system not reliant on their strong point- aim - was not a good idea), and he can't base the game around himself, you see the effects

it's hard to drop 30bombs every game if you have to focus on your teammates, micromanage them, coordinate pushes/rotations, etc... especially if you consider the modified roster. give them time to get comfortable together, so Niko can focus on his own game again. It's hard/impossible to have automatisms set up yet. Once they're there Faze will be a contender for tournament wins. Even if he may not be the greatest igl stratwise (my assumption, may get better over time), he's the type of igl every team wants: one who can frag like a madman
2019-10-10 18:18
He is IGL ing but maybe not for himself and for team this time sround
2019-10-10 18:18
He’s been getting worse since neo joined, didn’t happen suddenly

2019-10-10 18:20
He was actually doing good before, they had just won blast Miami then he couldn’t attend Sydney and they decided to kick adren and get neo. Under neo he sucked.

2019-10-10 19:49
He only prentended to be a good player all this time. Now we see he is really bad.
2019-10-10 18:26
17-12 vs mouz while being IGL on mouz map pick, yeah how can he be so bad? retire pls
