Good for both, if FaZe can get a good IGL as his replacement, but I don`t know if any are available RN, unless you want to get AZR, Xizt or MSl, but I don`t know if they are good enought.
Now faze can be more strutcturate and g2 will have even more firepower and everyone is happy, kenny+jackz / niko+hunter, and nexa is happy cuz the others are happy :D
Good for both
good for g2 cuz firepower + already existing chemistry
bad for faze cuz they loose one of their best players and one of the ones that have been there for the longest, also very hard to replace
Biggest snake in CS:GO, couldn't care less.
200 IQ move by G2 because either AmaNEk or JaCkz is getting benched and now they're gonna play like gods to try and stay in the team.
But in all seriousness, NiKo is a firepower boost but he doesn't really fit well into G2's structure because JaCkz as entry fragger and AmaNEk as support are both decent at what they do. kennyS is currently one of the weakest links in this team yet he is guaranteed to remain on this roster.
On paper obviously - it feels like a waste to use him the same way they use jackz and Hunter is a great lurker already. If niko is sometimes on entry with let’s say nexa/amanek on rotation and they play a set piece style in defaults for the majority of the time they’ll do great - mix in some fast paced loose and aggressive rounds and G2 could be one if not the most skilled roster across the board
In the long run good for faze, they'll get an actual igl and start to put together something resmebling a team, good for g2 in the short term becasue firepower
Good for FaZe due to NiKo being "too good" so it was almost impossible for them to get good role distribution, and like Coldzera said the other day: they can finally start to play or themselves and not play for NiKo.
Bad for G2 due to role suitability and team spirit. They will go deep in some events but what will happen the times they don't? I think the only difference is that series they previously won closely will be smashes right now, but it doesn't really change their stability, consistency and deep run chances
G2 will win short term, Faze in the long term unless the retards in NA disband the team first.
Would be sick if faze actually took the money from NiKo sale and outright poached a toptier IGL like golden or aleksib but they could also settle for AZR and it would still be an upgrade. Problem is faze is not making changes in 2020 so AZR may not be in the market anymore. Cold has no choice but to try to IGL the team to stay relevant so they could actually lure in a real good IGL with promise of skilled players willing to play more structured CS if that gets them the trophies.
Didn't even played with G2 yet and you ask this LOL weird nova2 muppet
