My Opinion is not influenced by Thorin at all, I watch very little Thorin. I like to hear his opinion but I keep my own far away from it. Now let's start with things that lead up to karrigan's departure, first the players didn't help Karrigan and NiKo especially. He is the one that started to call over Karrigan, from then on they had a few good results but not as good as with Karrigan.. that lead up to making the players think Karrigan is useless. Personally I don't see rain agreeing on kicking karrigan, rain performed the best under Karrigan. Even if he did agree to kick him, he regretted it in the next few weeks/months. Now the phase where NiKo started getting Major winner IGLs as trials that are washed up and live in 10 years in the past. This put the Team in a Limbo with very little good results. After that they got Broky, which was a huge gamble and was one of the best roster changes FaZe has ever had. Since then Broky was basically the only reason why FaZe kept winning anything. He dropped 30+ Frags several times. He even said it himself "If I don't drop 30 bombs im probably out of the team." Which shows NiKo's big Ego, He only wants immediate success and nothing less. Things were looking good after that, winning Blast Copenhagen 2019 where broky performed out of his mind for his first LAN Event. They looked decent from then on, Katowice was unlucky only losing to Na'Vi 2 times where they performed really well and went on to win the Tournament. Later around April-June Olofmeister took a break, that's where the team were on a knife's edge.. They had to get someone good enough to replace Olof's roles which are hard and even olof struggled in sometimes. Then wise NiKo with his 10 million iq decided to get Bymas which was by no means a bad pick up in terms of mechanical skill, but it was a terrible pick up in terms of game sense and his experience in Teams which was 0. The Team peaked Top 3 before the Player break and then Bymas left for Mousesports with a full on contract because NiKo only took him as a "Trial." They picked up Kjaerbye, he performed quite okay. Won IEM New York, then NiKo left. That's where I saw the players have the most fun they've had in a long time playing CS, winning or losing. They were all happy playing CS. I love brokyy, I love rain, I love olofmeister and I love Coldzera, but NiKo I despise. No matter what you say I will never Like him..
