Wtf are those tweets, just trying to fix his reputation by crying on Twitter?! We all know his history and flaws he had in the past Mouz: best player on the team couldn't stand losing so he took over as IGL cuz his ego couldn't listen to calls from other IGLs at the time FaZe: when they were actually good there was no problems in the team, but once they started to get decent competition and started losing, same thing happend, he takes over as IGL and karrigan is gone, from then FaZe just made series of roster changes that didn't make any sense. He is still calling and there are people who say "but he has to call sincd there is no IGL available", yeah but they had so many opportunities like aleksib or alex but they missed them all cuz they weren't right 'fit for the team" Also he claims he isn't controling on how roster changes are happening inside of a team but that is likely untrue imo, as a biggest star of the team he can have great impact on how organisation sees actual lineup, there is reason why cold is in the team in the first place. Him and Niko were hanging out quite a lot for a long time even before FaZe bought him. You think its coincidence that YNK is on the team? I dont think so. Him and YNK were very good friends for the longest time, since 1.6 days and once NiKo saw opportunity he got him in. About his partying btw. He is just classic Balkan resident, drinking and partying a lot is in the first place before job. He has been like this forever it's just people not noticing bcs he didn't post it on social media, he is just natural talent and that is reason why he is pretty good at the game itself, but he doesn't have enough working ethic or moral to be IGL, which requires a lot of work. TL;DR: NiKo is main reason why FaZe sucks, his ego can't stand losing and or being main player in the team, he effects on how roster changes are happening and is partying all the time with very little work in cs as IGL.

2020-09-17 13:36
Very low chance of happening in fact nearly 0 He is just like shox, pretty inconsistent but in certain times becomes god all of a sudden, shox in better form tho
2020-09-17 16:16
rain played best under karrigan, so send him to mouz imo since they need an entry fragger he's also said that he enjoys playing with karrigan igl ropz rain bymas/frozen chrisj karrigan
2020-09-17 17:17
If rain gets in it will be rain/bymas. And frozen definately not getting replaced thats for sure, cause he plays all the tough positions.
2020-09-18 01:22
-chrisj then and karrigan ropz awp? that can work ig
2020-09-18 01:23
Rain performance is an direct consequence of FaZe poor calls. Everytime he's called to open one area of the map alone, running through smoke or molotov and dies for nothing.

oh look another hltv expert
2020-09-17 13:02
I am not hltv expert or anything, but I've been following cs scene for very long time, I followed local scene in 1.6 days back in 2010ish and followed GO ever since 2015
2020-09-17 13:04
2020-09-17 13:07
Not really, I have a lot of experience with cs I am being serious tho I stopped playing CS in 2012-2014 once scene was crossing to GO I even played online tournaments in my country which were pretty big at the time and I played LANs in my city in internet caffes xD
2020-09-17 13:09
what tournaments did you play rofl. did you ever play on lan tournament and if yes, tell me where
2020-09-18 11:57
Not real LAN, but it is basically like local tournament in the city, you have entry fees like for example 10€, winner gets to keep money, but it was in kinda LAN environment in internet caffe
2020-09-18 12:44
so u are basically silver noone that gives himself right to criticize and give opinion on one of the best players in the world while not even being the best player in his house. typical slav mentality
2020-09-18 13:22
he is just a stupid kid, I totally agree, NiKo is and always was the problem in FaZe, just too big of an ego, isn't willing to change
2020-09-17 13:19

2020-09-17 13:50
Good one, got me good.
2020-09-17 13:51
I'll be more precise with my question (bcz I am not sure whether you don't agree with his opinion or you are just mad that he didn't say anything). What decent arguments did OP bring into this discussion?
2020-09-17 13:59
The way I see it, OP created a thread where he gives his opinion and (kind of) supports it with certain facts. What I didn't like is the comment that doesn't question or agree with the OP. If he didn't like the topic, he should just move on without commeting. Altough now you made me realize I did exactly the same thing by just dissing the guy. Turns out I'm a hypocrite.
2020-09-17 18:08
I suppose It's good that you are self reflecting but I was just asking which facts exactly did OP brought to us bcz most of it seems like a usseles bla-ber to me.

the thing still is you cant now most of the shit you wrote i am not defending him but you know you cant be sure about those things
2020-09-17 13:05
Ofc But from my perspective it is how it is, his career is very controversial imo and there is probably a lot of things behind the scenes that we dont know like conflict with karrigan or why olof took a break once FaZe reached its peak
2020-09-17 13:07
i noticed faze will turn to shiit just around bymas went in. Niko was making stream playing against average pros if not even that and he was getting destroyed i was like wtttf he made couple good frags but cmon, if this is faze top player everything gonna turn to shiit
2020-09-17 13:12
Tell that to those people who posted everytime FaZe played threads like kick Olof. When he was kicked, the team lost their spark in opinion. I was saying, that the team had fun, even though losing, that is why i respected them. I feel like the chemistry is gone. With Olof, they at least won something, even though his stats were pretty underwelming. His presence was the thing that was the spark for FaZe, in my opinion.

+1 Imo he need some break from pro-scene. maybe he'll think about his REAL place in the team during this break, idk. And after that he can decide which team (with igl already) to join cuz im sure there's will be a lot of offers.
2020-09-17 13:28
Lithuania aikaz45
+1 that is exactly how i feel. Niko is one of the main parts why Faze sucks... but idd like to add Ynk and the entire faze organization to the list of people to blame. Faze organization bought best fraggers thinking that thats all they need to win every game. they dont understand Cs at all
2020-09-17 13:30
100% agreed
2020-09-17 13:43
out of all international rosters right now in tier1.. faze is hands down the worst.

i mean they lost to spirit... they lost 5 times in a row... i swear they are on the brink of being tier 2 (if they are not already)
2020-09-17 15:43
To be honest, i would count them as tier 3. I counted them as a tier 2 with Olof, becouse they could not rival the best in the league. I am just sad, I was (and still am) a FaZe fan, but this just makes me want to vomit. They lost every game, only won against Mibr, fucking Mibr. And the win was 2:1.

2020-09-17 13:39
2020-09-17 16:17

2020-09-17 13:51
alex wanted a flashpoint team
2020-09-17 13:52
Do you know what's true ? Hltv experts with lover ammount of IQ points than NiKo's number of major titles. Funny how everyone knows the situation perfect as if they supervise the team 24/7 and know what the fuck happens behind close doors. NiKo was the only decent player in that mouz team , took over the IGL role when gob b was benched which btw wasn't his fault and did as much as he could with that team. Karrigan was kicked for a reason , everyone was calling it at the time and suddenly everyone misses him.Yall need to shut the fuck , you have no idea what happens in that team. Aleksi wasn't taken cuz they were probably already in talks with cold before aleksi was an option. And thank fuck they didn't splurge 600k on alex , a ticking time bomb that hasn't played pro cs in ages and could get homesick at any moment again and just leave.And who knows , maybe they did aproach him but he declined and left to c9. But who am I to judge , you guys obviously know everything and I'm just an idiot for wasting my time writing something no one will even read or be able to comprehend since you are all so blinded by the hate.
2020-09-17 13:53
+1 They were in talks with Aleksib, but after some talks with other people (maybe allu) all the team decided to go for something else. They did an offer for Alex but he decided for cloud9. Looks like they contacted some other IGL's or people like Flusha but non of those worked. But of course, everyone here knows more than Niko itself. It's amazing.
2020-09-17 14:15
maybe its more of niko wanting to have a much bigger say in how the team operates. a lot of ingame leaders probably don't want to start their tenure in a new team with their hands shackled by another person's whims. also the professional scene in csgo is surprisingly small, especially t1... so it doesn't surprise me that kioshima comes out and says that niko actually kicked him.
2020-09-17 15:20
Not really I am 100% sure that NiKo said aleksib wasnt right fit for the team, I mentioned it in the post, just the fact they paid 1milion for cold is ridiculous, alex maybe not worth 600k but cold is twice more overpaid, also I assume that alex would reject since he said he was looking into team that isnt singed with blasy or esl I think Edit: about karrigan, a lot of people who were bitching about karrigan being bad individually didnt/dont know shit about cs, there is reason why karrigan went on a nice run with mouz at one point

Nice analysis. Much better than some experts who thinks faze is a great team with Niko igling and 5 legendary aimers who won 1 map in 7 bo3s. Faze as a whole org was pathetic for last 2 years, especially Niko however, i always thought its not because of his ego but his wrong approach. After seeing those tweets today against thoorin my mind has completely changed. He thinks thoorin should "deserve" to interview him. Absolutely pathetic. What is even more pathetic, blaming others on Twitter. He claims he does not control everything on faze. Yeah, thats why ynk who is compeletly useless, is coaching for 2 years in faze, right? Because of his amazing coaching skills.
2020-09-17 14:57
i said in another thread sometime ago that faze is the mibr of europe (minus the actual fans). at least that's how their attitudes on social media seem to reflect them. can do no wrong, eh?
2020-09-17 15:22
I dont care about the fans. Faze fans are also pretty stupid to be fully blind to the realities. What made me crazy on mibr situation was fallen to trigger their 12 yo fankids to make death threats to a young player. Moreover, mibr is so much better on diversifying excuses. There were plenty threads about it and the amount of their excuses are incredibly high while faze only has "we have a New player give us time to practice." And "we do not understand what is wrong. we just cant do basics."
2020-09-17 15:44
according to richard lewis article it wasn't the first time fallen has been in the spotlight for having sent his hate mob after a player. then again kng- threatened to kill someone and reportedly tried to find that person in the hotel. also according to that article. but yeah you're right. mibr have so many excuses someone compiled a list of it on hltv. it had like 50 different excuses mibr have used.
2020-09-17 16:25
You are going way too far insulting faze fans for cheering for their team even in the bad times.
2020-09-18 03:11
NiKo has big ego and you can see that in a lot of situations, just his playstyle is imo getting outdated, tapping for no good reason sometimes for example or sometimes even baiting from my POV Another examples: On stream he calls all the fpl players out, just on his comms you can assume he thinks he is best and always getting cocky when someone bests him individually Also very good example is when he was named #11 player of the year last year, look up for his tweet saying something like not satisfied with this position while playing mediocre cs through entire year
2020-09-17 16:27
I wouldnt call him baiter. Simple is terribly baiting since last year, cold was a baiter but i disagree Niko baits. Agree with the unneccesary tapping tries. He lost duels numerous times because of that. Toxicity in fpl is Real. For example, most funny one, he once said on Stream overpass is never played in fpl because none knows map, smokes etc. However, faze on overpass is the most disgusting display i have ever seen on top lvl. I dont understand why opponents dont pick more often. They are literally worse than 5 mm kids. They are like playing first time the map. I started to believe Niko thinks like that way:" lets go party ynk, cold. We dont need any practice, we are gonna destroy those noobs."
2020-09-17 16:40
A lot of assumptions and barely any facts, Thorin that recently made a video about NiKo being dog hit IGL said it himself that he deserved better than 11th place that year and It's better to not be statisfied and always look to play better, that's how champions are born.

2020-09-17 15:23
NiKo crying on twitter isn't gonna do shit. Cut a player and buy out a god tier IGL. Take whatever money you need for the IGL out of NiKo's salary as he's been a waste of space for 2 years. I know Thorin always pisses off some people, but he's usually right, and in his own weird way, he's good for the scene. He did the same shit to k0nfig, but k0nfig was mature enough to use it as motivation to improve.
2020-09-17 15:28
2020-09-17 16:13
A waste of space for 2 years ? Xaxaaxaxaxaxax
2020-09-17 16:21
Yup. He single-handedly held back FaZe for 2 years with his leading. And don't give me any bullshit about "players form was bad so it wasn't his fault" Any good IGL can win a series with team play over fragging. Recently mous had a series they won with something like 4/5 players going negative.
2020-09-17 16:57
Well yeah , player form was bad , it aint an excuse it's a reality.
2020-09-17 17:48
Player form can change within 2 weeks if an IGL uses a player properly. Look at mous before and after the chrisJ/ frozen role swap last year. NiKo doesn't know how to use his players, kjaerbye is a prime example.

2020-09-17 16:18
Germany BIG2020 faze + Denis and everything is ok. or maybe he and ynk should stop partying and get a coach who dont ruins teams but builts charakter.
2020-09-17 16:21
Trust me there is almost no way they could stand more than week or 2 without partying
2020-09-17 16:29
I have seen his few posts and can literally tell even if he will say "we played bad and lost" I will think of it as an excuse.
2020-09-17 16:22
Disband like other teams or have a break will be my advice for Niko Since Online era Niko complaining a lot about online csgo.Yes online csgo can be easier for some teams. We seeing new top 1 Team every month who could hardly make to top 10 in lan csgo. Then why not Faze? Niko simply escaping reality with baseless excuses. Bad IGL and EGO of Niko will lead Faze to out of Top 20 by end of 2020.
2020-09-17 16:29
They should just rebuild around niko and broky and myb cold (with niko not being igl) new leadership, new team staff etc

Agree with niko not beeing a decent igl but contesting coldzera is brainless. The team just doesen't work without olof because he was 1 of the best on his position, yet they fail to rotate players or find a replecement. 1 more bad step was kicking bymas, lmao. But hey, i'm niko, why should be bymas entry and not put him in a position he is unfamiliar with?

2020-09-17 17:14
2020-09-17 17:18
Btw he was set to join mibr before karrigan was kicked (faze was going to built the roster around Karrigan)and karrigan said that he dont know what happened but the next week Karrigan got the boot If niko was set to join mibr why would he kick karrigan and stay here when he could join mibr with cold and mibr wasn't that bad at that time Someone else wanted to kick karrigan, to keep NiKo as a fragger in the team, as he wasn't igl(not his fault the team didn't trust him) and was not fragging alot
2020-09-17 18:15
Didn't know about that one
2020-09-17 19:57
NiKo would have gone to mibr had rain decided to leave as well , but since NiKo didn't want to leave faze without rain the deal failed and they ended up getting stewie2k and later tarik.

honestly really excited for him to go on some podcast like BTN or hltv confirmed because he probably wouldn't do a 1on1 with thorin at this point though that shit about the 200$ was funny also second to last line-niko posts his partying literally everyday on instagram where he's drinking with ynk and cold super often
2020-09-18 04:03
>NiKo makes shit decisions >HLTV anytime a player get below 1.00 in a match "kick ___" "FaZe Fix: Kick ____ add (random player they like)" lmao both are shit, I'd trust neither.
