Okay, so what happens is when they have karrigan they start to have bad results in the later part of 2018, instead of trying to work things out niko takes the igl role from him, which is the exact thing that he did in mouse even though he obviously wasn’t a good igl in mouse, and eventually pushes karrigan out of the team. At that point he decides that the best possible option is to pick up adren, a guy who has been playing on cis teams for years and makes him a support instead of getting an igl. No big deal they play alright and even win a couple tournaments. Finally he says I don’t want to be igl anymore so they get neo, at this point he starts to hit a slump but the team overall starts to show some structure. Neo gives niko a lot of freedom to play as he wants, but niko still continues to struggle and considering his position doesn’t opt to take a step back and let anyone else try and fill that star role. After awhile and some lack luster results they kick neo, guardian, and get broky and cold, and niko goes back into the igl role. Well this is strange because just four months before he says he doesn’t want to igl, but when the opportunity to play with cold arises he’s more than willing to do it. At the same time he says that they didn’t play with aleksib because his style didn’t fit into the team, but they didn’t play with him so how does he know how his style is? Even though there were proven igls available he would rather pickup more firepower. So now he’s igl and faze continue to suck and play like puggers.
Niko is not a proven igl, but after igling for a period he would rather be a poor igl and play with his friend then follow the lead of a proven igl, henceforth his ego is to the point that it is holding the team back from getting a competent leader.
