NIKO - LAST CHANCE
Vertigo | 
Canada I_LOVE_DE_VERTIGO 
in terms of individual skills, we all know that he has been at the top of csgo since 2015. However, Nikola NiKo Kovac will be 24 years old in February, and most likely will have only ~2 years of prime left. His drinking problems will also contribute to his peak playing career ending prematurely. Do you think that a core of nexa, hunter, kennyS and NiKo has what it takes to win a major in the near future or will there be other changes necessary in order for G2 to compete with the best teams in the world? Also, how will you remember NiKo ? Winner, Loser, God, Snake, or something else?

What team was NiKo in during 2015 to be at the top during 2015?

dude, NiKo was winning regional competitions back in 1.6 when he was 12 years old and became the best player in Balkan with like 15 years old , even less..He was always on top. Maybe his team wasnt on top, but he as an individual is.

He played 1 big event in 2015. I'm not disputing hes one of the best individuals. I'm saying he wasn't "on top" during 2015. 2016 he started to prove himself vs t1 a lot more and then when he joined Faze, he was consistently vs top teams.

He could have joined tier 1 scene much sooner , but he wanted to stick to his local gang of balkan players and win something. Then he realized that u cant 1v5 and accepted the offer from mouz...wich yet again he played 1v5...

Ok? Did I ask? I legit only asked why this guy thinks NiKo was "top of cs since 2015" when he played 1 big event and bombed out early.

are you kidding or ? niko's drinking issues are a well known problem It started when he was in mouzsports (probably because he had to play with spidii and denis), him and lowel partied like animals and that's why they had to break them up. Then obviously he joined faze and started making insane money and the fame got to his head which enhanced his ego. While in Faze, he used to drink heavily and would even drink alone in his apartment, which is why he missed a lot of team practices when karrigan was still on the team. Then he recruited his buddy coldzera who btw ruined his career with alcohol as well, and two of them were on a rampage late 2019 early 2020 before covid hit. On top of that don't forget that he is from a third world country in europe where drinking is normal when you're in high school. Moreover, even thorin and RLewis have recently exposed and confronted him about this.

imo this team will be like Faze late2017/early 2018. They will do good for 6-8 months, then they will start to fall. Then NiKo will probably kick Nexa to become igl

as a faze fan, i dont think hes a snake, hes been on this team for a long time through various different rosters and tried his best to achieve the best. i can only wish him the best of luck going forward. ps if g2 dropped kenny too and added broky i would glady support g2 :3

2020-10-25 01:15
i dont think he's a snake, i think people over-exaggerate when saying cold dropped everything waah waaaah he went to serbia for him waaah, cuz...cold is an adult? he knew what decision he was taking, and even if they both believed in it at the start it's stupid to think that niko would make such a decision without telling anybody in the team, especially if they're such "close" friends KEKW and i dont think either that niko would make to g2 what he did to faze, the g2 management doesnt seem to be a 100% incompetent, like we know faze's is. and also everybody is forgetting that HUNTER, NIKO'S COUSIN is on the team bro??? only if hunter turns out to be as egotistical and narcicisstic as niko it could be plausible for such a thing to happen...what if its a family thing?

NiKo will be remembered as: A snake/ backstabber (kicking Karrigan, ditching Cold) A terrible IGL An egotist + choker (I disagree with the whole ego thing, but that's how most people see it) Waste of talent Bad work ethic Wasting teammates time for 2 years Hunter's cousin Shame to see, because his God-tier form is one of the most entertaining things to watch in cs.

I will always remember him as NikoSports, i mean no disrespect to any of his previous teammates but he really had to hardcarry it... whatever if it's going to work out or not idk, you either had him with good igl and shitty fraggers or shitty igl and good fraggers.... and imo there's more time but you never know.. i'd like to see a balkan "s u p e r t e a m" tbh
2020-10-25 01:12
I'll remember him as budget s1mple, but not as skilled of course, and also not so smart emotionally speaking. Of course 0 major and will continue this way, unless NiKo takes amazonian psychedelic mushrooms and find god.
2020-10-25 01:15
