Literally all we say is Faze should of signed an IGL instead of a new washed up player every few months, rather than say falling for the biggest scam in csgo (Coldzera worth $1m buyout)
2020-09-17 10:29
Kio low iq as usually lmao, not a reality, niko is just addressing to the people who keep questioning the idea.
2020-09-18 06:51
Anyone with a IQ above 5 knows that he hates IGLing and didn't kick karrigan by himself. The problem is that the team is absolute dogshit and his IGLing is absolute dogshit. That's where most of the frustation is coming from.

Alot of people have a iq below 5 then. And yes his igling is dogshit but that doesn't mean that his "ego is too big" for him to get a new igl which is what EVERYONE says about him especially here and on twitter.
2020-09-17 04:58
I find it most funny how Alex takes a break from pro play and immediately all the faze roster move gurus go “ALEX TO FAZE????” Like ffs the man said he wanted a break from pro cs. I doubt that means he wants to join faze rn.
2020-09-17 05:02
facts and alot of people say "faze could have gotten alex but niko would not want to let go of igl" or some dumb shit like that. and looks like in henryG's latest podcast 5 big orgs in csgo were trying to get alex so its very likely that faze was actaully trying but just weren't able too get him.
2020-09-17 05:03
They tried but it didn't work it out so they went for Kjaerbye. You can read that under lines with Bymas saying that they wanted an IGL and another one from YNK I think, where he said they were in contact with him. But silver kids from hltv thinks Niko didn't want alex on the team.

Faze fans do that every time a player leaves his team
2020-09-17 05:03
Argentina Joedash
Not every, but because faze fans know that faze needs an IGL.
2020-09-17 06:42
The average IQ on HLTV is below 5. Are you really surprised? Putting aside accusations whether his ego is big or not, when you're constantly putting out excuses like "oh, we need more practice with the new player" or doing things like not getting an IGL despite everyone saying you should for the past 2 years, then targeting NiKo himself becomes very, very easy.
2020-09-17 05:02
Faze havent even tried to get an igl after karrigan. it would be ignorant to think Niko didnt have anything to do with that.
2020-09-17 05:04
Obviously he has something to do with it but he himself has admitted that he wanted a new igl. people act like its easy to get a igl. Igl's is like the hardest position to replace, not too mention they would also have to fit in the team and they would also WANT to join faze.
2020-09-17 05:08
They did try, lol
2020-09-17 10:20
Why do you talk like that's what really happens? They tried to contact Aleksib but they though it wouldn't work , they tried with Flusha to help with the IGL thing and they tried with Alex but he decided for cloud9.
2020-09-17 11:27
What? They asked people (from allu, i guess) if Aleksib would fit in FaZe and decided that he did not fit. They never talk with Aleksib itself. My pov this is just like they never REALLY wanted an actual IGL and NiKo was okey deal with in-game leading role.

niko DESTROYED mousesports niko DESTROYED faze there u go
2020-09-17 05:07
niko destroyed mousesports? you must be new to csgo.. there is a reason they were called Nikosports
2020-09-17 05:08
Yes the teammates were already into the next round and still shittalking/arguing about last round. they needed to shut up

2020-09-17 10:24
not a good example but read the comments below. any time a team with niko goes through a rough patch, they start performing like shit, and it was either niko or the igl that left, and you could easily see during the games that niko would go off and so his own thing.
2020-09-17 14:43
2020-09-17 11:16
He did destroy then tho, same thing happend with igl on the team he decided to call just bcs his ego couldn't stand to listen to the ideas that he didn't agree withs Same thing happend with faze, karrigan on team and niko all of a sudden starts calling just bcs he couldn't stand somebody else callings
2020-09-17 06:35
Argentina Joedash
Mmmh, no? Karrigan lost his confidence on his callings and actually started to make bad calls, that's why Niko started to make the calls. And Niko and karrigan are still good fellas, which means there was no discussion, karrigan himself started to train more because he lost his confidence and after he got kicked of faze clan he had a time where he trained before entering mouz. Stop that bs ffs, you are really miss informed.
2020-09-17 06:45
Actually NIKO was the one doubting his calls.It happened in a major match against Na'vi back in 2018. How are you supposed to call when you have a strong voice in the team doubting you? Karrigan apparently told the team he can't call when they don't listen to him.And they decided NIKO would do the calling.Supposedly NIKO was gonna be transferred to some other team.And Karrigan had a chance to rebuild faze again.Unfortunately,it fell apart and he was the one that was kicked. This interview sheds the light on the situation.
2020-09-17 08:04
Argentina Joedash
We will see when HLTV Confirmed do an interview with niko as he offered himself. Sorry for being rough tho, not my intention but im sick of threads trash-talking about faze/niko or co. Faze fans know and are the ones who mostly struggle or get sick of the team's decision, but people keep trash-talking. And as far as i know, karrigan also lost his confidence on his calls(even tho it was because no one listened to him, but that was because his calls started to make less sense or were bad decisions cause whenever he called, he would actually call wrong).
2020-09-17 15:00
Faze were able to consistently reach the grand finals at their peak. The problem appeared when some of the star players choked in the final when the opponent started fighting back. It might have been bad calls. But in no way it justifies the sloppy performance from players like NIKO in a final. They were a different team altogether after olof left and came back. And i doubt faze could have done any better with ever changing 5th in the team during olof break. After olof returned, the bitterness resurfaced after poor results. Can't really blame it on one guy, karrigan. They could have pushed aside the poor results and tried to do better after just two months of getting back together. There was a time when astralis was consistently choking semi finals. But they pulled through after some time and showed us what prime astralis was like

Never blamed karrigan tho lol. I'm just saying that it ain't all Niko's fault and is stupid to keep blaming and creating same threads all week long.

I'm a fan of Niko. But... It's hard to ignore the fact that despite being one of the best players in the world, any team he's on just doesn't seem to perform consistently. Mousesports performed well before he joined them, and actually improved a bit when he left. Is it bad luck? Maybe. Maybe not.
2020-09-17 10:25
also a good reason why mousesports were slumping at the end of niko’s tenure with mouz and they were doing quite well as soon as he left
2020-09-17 14:33
I trust he was not doing everything but I believe that he is not good IGL.
2020-09-17 05:17

we all believe this, he said he does not want to IGL
2020-09-17 06:15

Grow three what? months, years, days? NiKo stated he does not make these changes and he stated he would go onto a podcast to explain everything. No one in FaZe, has been in FaZe, or the org itself has stated that NiKo makes roster moves, so I don't know where you get this idea that he makes these decisions.
2020-09-17 08:04
Do you just believe everything this guy says to the media?
2020-09-17 10:15

but where do you get that he has the final decision on roster changes?

2020-09-18 06:48
I never said that niko is the final one signing the deals in faze. I'm sorry but I'm calling you a stupid cunt bcs you are exactly that. You read one niko tweet and then you take it as the word from God. That means you're dumb.
2020-09-18 10:33
United States Hindy
"coldzera? kjaerbye? who ask them to join faze?" was the main reply, I replied with, " not him obviously, probably CEO or team manager" , and you said, "Yeah and the earth is flat too? Grow three fuck up cunt. So no where I was talking about his IGLing, the main topic is the roster changes. You basically said that he makes the roster changes, I disagreed because his tweet is the only evidence we have. You started to backtrack because you know you are wrong, I never mention his IGLing(we all know its bad) . Niko is not going to publically lie and then request to go on a podcast to explain it, use your brain. I thought EU was smart.
2020-09-18 20:01
If he doesn't have a say . How come Niko nominates bymas as an upcoming talent n a year later they added "Bymas " . If u check current faze lineup Cold : Niko's BF Rain : Niko's friend who he termed as best person he ever played with Yanko : Niko's cuck Broky : Good talent but at the time he was added only 3 players were there in Faze ,Niko RaIn n Olof so who was in-charge ??? Niko probably. Even if u don't like IGLing how come u keep doing it from past 2 years n keep failing it miserably that meant either u r lying or u r retard who is wasting his prime in failed project. Just step down if u dont like IGL n ask management to add another IGl ,if they don't agree ,leave the team.because this is clearly not working

Rain was in the team before Niko what is your point and Bymas is a young talent they just wanted to have one stand-in they bought him in because he was good....... I mean I am not saying Niko doesn't have say in "who to bring into team"...but most of these points are not valid.
2020-09-17 07:22
Where i have said rain was added after niko?? I am saying Niko now has players/ coach who will never gonna question his authority even if he takes bad decisions , yet he tweets he is not incharge . Ofc in money related decision faze management will have final say but clearly management is listening to Niko opinion
2020-09-17 07:37
+1 NiKo DOES have a say in who they bring into the team, but overall Its fazes managements choice.
2020-09-17 07:37
+1 very apt its frustrating to see faze going downhill when they can easily be top 5 in the world. They had won only 1 map in whole pro league and i don't know when management will understand that clearly this way its not working.
2020-09-17 10:35
I honestly struggle to believe that NiKo would be as innocent as he pretends to be in that tweet. It's no coinsidence that YNK got the coaching job in FaZe despite showing zero impact as a coach in MiBR, nor is it any coinsidence that FaZe wasted 1 million on cold, clearly two moves made entierly to please overlord NiKo and no one else. Add to that the fact that multiple good igls have been available since they removed karrigan and none of them have been 'good enough for FaZe' while NiKo has been igling with very little success. I call bullshit.
2020-09-17 07:46
yes it`s the same as it was in mousesports. when things dont work out, niko unites all roles in his person and a team in a temporary low becomes a settled shit show. ynk is just there to strengthen nikos back in this. the only qualifcation and the reason why ynk became relevant is because he knew Niko when Nikos career started xD
2020-09-17 08:04
Clearly lying and he rejects thorin because he would push hım to the limits. He wants to interview with someone like those talents who never criticise Niko and pretends faze has been winning everything lately. "Oh faze legendary team, 5 godlike aimers, Niko the mighty igl."
2020-09-17 10:30
He is the biggest retard ever. imagine you are one the best individual players who touched the game but you waste the best years of your career with medicore igling
2020-09-17 08:00
I dont get it, Niko Said he wanted to become the best IGL in the world. Thats means he wanted to igl when coldzera joined
2020-09-17 08:07
Good point. He is clearly lying about the situation. Coach friend, teammates friends, he is the one who builds this roster and he definitely wanted to be igl. He is lying because faze fans are stupid enough to believe it.
2020-09-17 10:32
Indeed. He also just saying all this because everything is going to shit atm and trying to find something else but himself to blame
2020-09-17 10:52
Yep, act like you are sacrificing and when chips down, immediately blame others. At least, just say, i built the roster, i brought my friends ynk,cold and i wanted to be igl but i fucked up. Just accept the truth. Or maybe just say i dont give af, i am going to party with ynk and cold.
2020-09-17 11:12
Ye exactly. Its going to be interesting to see how things develop. What is niko going to do.
2020-09-17 11:22
2020-09-17 10:19
come on bro, replace kjaerbye with a good igl and it s over, top 5 team.A very good igl and a very good coach will boost you to at least top 3 if we consider the players on this team.
2020-09-17 10:22
Lithuania KingOfPing
Of course in reality its not everything only his words and decisions, but he has a big impact doing changes. Biggest talk is about that 2 years faze suck with niko as igl and he don't wanna change that, if he really care team results he should step down from igl and leave it to others (like cold or olof) or tell team find new igl instead add new 5th for 2 months. Instead trying be fake igl just say fuck it i'm not be igl anymore because we suck and start doing what u can do best - fragging, or leave team.
2020-09-17 10:36
When he doesn't decide who does and why niko agree with it. He is in the team and so he is responsible anyway. And he gave an interview where he explained why he (not the team) don't pick aleksib
2020-09-17 10:40
Germany Shackrag
still dont understand why they downgraded to shakerbye. if the problem is the igl and they are looking for one then they dont need to kick the 5th whenever they are on a bad streak as long as the main problem isnt solved. always kicking the 5th instead tells me that they believed that niko could fill the position and the other player was the problem.
2020-09-17 14:42

2020-09-17 17:29
At this point, I just hope they find some nice IGL cause I do miss seeing NiKo fuck everyone up.
2020-09-17 23:18
don't believe his lies! :-) he was a great player and of course the joke of an org (faze) gave him full control of the roster/line up he decided to remove kioshima and allu in 2017 and now this is karma sincerely I LOVE DE VERTIGO
2020-09-17 23:19
i liked niko but since he removed karrigan he has too much ego
2020-09-17 23:23
Indonesia Deluxio
There's a few things that i don't really understand from this : 1. I don't believe if he says that he's not the one who made decisions from adding a new player because he's the fucking IGL, of course the new players addition should be based on the IGL because he's the one who made the strats and he should know what kinda player that he needs 2. If he really don't like to be an IGL like people said, why don't he just talk to the management to recruit a new IGL???
2020-09-17 23:32
its YNK dude he is destroying faze like he destroyed mibr
2020-09-18 07:35
Rain NiKo broky and kjaerbye all die while YNK is telling the strat for the round and only cold is left alive by the time he finishes
2020-09-18 07:36
cold is a 1 mil scam kjaerbot idk why faze picked him , he destroyed his career himself by leaving Astralis rain will retire on a tier 3 team now , save broky happy for bymas
2020-09-18 07:38
2020-09-18 10:35
Then why does he stil igl
