So about NiKo...

Well, I have seen this G2 transfer and FaZe things lately but wtf is going on? You have a csgo team with different roles and players(mainly 3 firepower and 2 supports) and you bring Niko to G2? I understand that G2 has been shit lately, but idk about 2 star riflers in one team. I find totally unfair kicking Amanek and Jackz for egoistic "cunt" like him. G2 is perfect like it is now and if the team has a toxic star player wich destroyed 2 teams(sorry Niko fans I don't like him. I know he is super talented and he is one of the best star riflers but the ego is just too big for a successful csgo player). You can try to change my mind but I think that Faze is much better now when they got rid of him and G2 need to get a new support player, not a star rifler. He could join ex-C9 roaster instead of Floppy and be with them.

Its crazy to me how u think you know him so well that you are actually willing to say "he is toxic and has destroyed 2 teams by himself and his ego is too big to be a pro player" You do not know him at all, hltv kids just made up that he is a toxic and egotistical player cause of him screaming "shut up" to 2 teammates who were arguing mid round... and now everyone on hltv thinks that niko is toxic and egotistical. its hillarious

I think that NiKo discredited karrigan's igl role a lot, but not with necessary bad intention... He just wanted to win and kicking him was the solution they(team) came up with. I even like karrigan for his experience and leadership, but he was done in FaZe (partly thanks to NiKo as I said - that's what I think)

Idk man. I watched both videos and NiKo does sound quite self-critical. I won't presume to know what happens indoors within FaZe but that video doesn't suggest to me that he's toxic. And GuardiaN having praise for karrigan and thinking they let him down as a team doesn't really point towards NiKo either. karrigan had an over 2-year tenure and NiKo was there for almost all of it.

youtube.com/watch?v=uxj96kmX64A I think that's the video you wanted to share about NiKo regarding karrigan and I think what he's said is being misinterpreted. The game asks if X is overrated or underrated in general terms. When they ask him about karrigan, he says "a little bit overrated" because he says people thought FaZe would be dead in the water without him and that certainly isn't the case (in his opinion). He is not talking about karrigan as an IGL in general. People always like to jump to conclusions and take things out of context.
2020-10-27 02:46
I'm very excited and very concerned at the same time. Anyone can see that this is an unorthodox move by G2. They had a great structure in place, it just seems like they're one of the teams that got screwed by the whole online situation becaseu ever since we've come online they haven't been quite up to par with their usual standard. I'd assume this is a bit of a desperation move by G2. Then again.... how can you not be excited to at least see this team play? Honestly, my expectations aren't very high, because even though NiKo won't IGL (he's not that stupid to try and take over once again I'd assume), he as a player is the polar opposite of AmaNEk, but on the other hand he's so skilled that it makes me wonder whether they might be able to do well, at least short term. I just wanna see what happens. I doubt that they'll be worse than FaZe was, but maybe FaZe will bring in a proper IGL at some point and thus improve as a team.

NiKo isn’t as flexible a player as you would hope him to be for G2. When FaZe picked up neo, neo had NiKo playing entry sometimes and doing a lot of lurking, and frankly NiKo was terrible in these roles. Meanwhile you saw olofmeister and rain play much more consistently (better in olof’s case) than when they were put back into their roles under NiKo’s leadership. NiKo will have to be given a lot of freedom for him to really shine in G2, but unless they’re also planning to release KennyS for a more consistent awper I still don’t see this team being anymore successful than FaZe was at their peak post karrigan, or as G2 was earlier this year. Edit: Obviously NiKo does a lot of lurking now but it’s a lot more random whereas he was made to be more structured under neo and play set positions.

I disagree with the notion that they can't improve relative to where they were before as long as they have kennyS (my flair checks out). While he has undeniably been playing poorly, everyone seems to be so quick to forget that he was a top tier AWPer earlier this year. That was then, this is now, but Kenny in spite of everyone saying how he's supposedly been washed up since the AWP nerf has had some great performances every single year with the exception of 2018. My point is that he is sure to return to good form, it is but a matter of time. A lot of this team's success hinges on how long it takes him to do so. I mostly agree with the rest of you points though, NiKo does not really fit the roles of either jaCkz or AmaNEk and that's the one potentially ritical flaw in this plan. We'll just have to see how it pans out, whether NiKo can fit in, whether kennyS can find his form soon enough and whether they can get over their apparent issues with playing under great pressure.

I mean that’s the problem with KennyS, you can’t have a consistent top 5 team with a highly inconsistent awper. That’s the difference between awpers like device, S1mple, Zywoo and Kenny, is these guys are consistently top of their game day in and day out, Kenny can’t keep disappearing months at a time, he did the same last year before hunter and Nexa joined.
2020-10-27 02:25
You realize that he was better then olof and rain in those "shitty" roles impact wise...the fact he was not as good as you know he can be and was still 11th best player that year shows how flexible he can be.
2020-10-27 03:15

If he finally gets out, they just need to get an IGL and let Kjaerbye to be the star player. They will lose some firepower without NiKo, but if they can find a good IGL that knows how to make everyone shine, I'm sure Rain, Coldzera or Broky can step up their game and kill much more than they do now.

Nexa will probably call everything around the cousins and support himself. I don't think they would just splurge who knows how many millions on NiKo without a plan.
2020-10-26 21:45
I don't understand why u guys think that NiKo will destroy nearly any team with his big Ego and whatever. Ofcourse he has an bigger Ego then most players but u have to think about his situation. He stated himself that he is not the main decider regarding the roster changes in faZe and still everyone hated on him for everthing that went wrong. He needs a bigger Ego to absorb all the critisim and the pressure on him. But he is still a top3 rifler in the world and an insane allroader. He is the best player on Faze and he knows that. He needs freedom on the map even more than jackz but if u look at jackz performances the last few months i think niko can do more with the space he is going to get. and alongside hunter then entry fragging will be insane.

Yo, even if he says that he is not the main decider regarding roster changes, he undoubtedly had huge impact on it. How could you bring in fucking FaZe a newbie from fpl that has not even had a pro team before and is a friend of NiKo. FaZe could have aleksiB in his "prime" or atleast in good form, when he led Ence to finals on major, and NiKo made an excuse. After all I hope that he is just hungry for winning and all he does is not being a bitch but being a desperate for winning.

yeah i totally agree with you that faze should have picked up an IGL but they tried aleksib and said he wasnt working for them. But i still think that he could have given faze a really good structure just like OG now. I hope he and hunter if the transfer goes through will just destroy everyone on entry

G2 is definitely not perfect the way it is but niko is not the solution nor do I think he will fit given who he's probably replacing

NiKo can play as entry, so he can move Jackz to support, be a replacement for Jackz instead than replacing Amanek as everyone is saying or they can even stay as a 6th man team or play on Hunter's position so he can move to any of that left work. There's a lot of possibilities.
2020-10-26 23:53
1 reply
but can jackz play support? A lot of people are either saying replace jackz or replace amanek, rolewise people are saying replace jackz since people don't believe in the 6th rotation. There's going to be a big clash of roles between all 5 even Kenny considering NiKo demands awping on certain maps, nexa might be picking up where niko/hunter can't take, amanek is already fitting his role and so is jackz, so it's hard to determine who loses their job. Plus I highly doubt they go for the 6th man bs

Bring back KARRIGAN ! Its hypothetical , if Faze bring back Karrigan, there is a chance that they might able to work it out. Karrigan is a really good IGL. Everyone is aware of his prowess . He is already known for putting the stars players into the right place and bringing the most out of them. He will definitely provide structure and synergy to the team and enough room and freedom to the players where they can feel comfortable. He already proved that with bymas in mousesports, who faze decided to kick because he couldn't fit in their system. But Karrigan used him pretty good . He is playing far better in mousesports than he did in faze under Niko. Mouz isnt playing well. Faze is in slump too. It might work. Faze already got the stars. Considered most hardworking player , my man COLDZERA and then there is Rain. I think his name is enough to tell the tale. Broky , young and up and coming and right now , the clutch player for faze and Kjaerbye,he also have made his presence known, showing signs of rise. Karrigan has played with Rain and Kjaerbye so that would also help in the process of rebuilding faze. This idea has worked with Fnatic , when they bring back Golden to the roster. Fnatic showed signs of resurgence. What bothers me is that it will be a huge loss to Mousesports who is my other favourite because of Ropz and Karrigan. Some will not like this . To those people ,i would like to say R E L A X . Its a hypothetical situation. To those who believe this might work, Just like this space , my mind is empty. I have nothing else to say other than KEEP BELIEVING! If you made it this far, Thankyou for your time. Good luck and situation is really hard right now because of this pandemic. Take a good care of yourself. Thankyou SaLsaysHi .
2020-10-26 22:34
Imo the most logical solution for g2 is making nexa play more supportive roles and call their game around cousins. Faze for sure will lose a lot of firepower but of they will bring good igl (they can buy anyone rn) who will make the rest of the team shine they can still be strong t1.

People are hating Niko for no reason, they don't know what goes behind the scenes of Faze org, I think their management is shit. Also, Niko wasted so much time to realize that this faze roster is not working without IGL, and he tries his best to make it works by taking the IGL role. And with G2 they are inconsistent, they beat heroic one day and got shitted by godsent the next day. I think they need to take some break, changing the players is not the way to achieve results
