Is NiKo cursed?
Perfecto | 
United States Fallingwhale 
I'm honestly interested in your opinions. Why is NiKo never able to win anything significant? Is there something about his playstyle that hinders his teammates? Does he just choke?

But he's had really good teams before. The Faze lineup with him, rain, karrigan, guardian, and olofmeister was a superstar team. They were obviously the best in the world at the time. Yet they couldn't win anything important.

I get your point tho, as a NiKo fan I‘ve been disappointed with how things have gone. It‘s just always these stupid mistakes during the match that make it look so bad, not the results themselves. If they didn‘t lose 5v2s all the time then they would probably be in the playoffs by now. Not to mention that NiKo can perform much better than he did here.

You can't pin the blame to one player only. Most of the finals that they lost he still top fragged. Take the final against fnatic in katowice 2018, lost 3-2 but he top fragged with 120 kills across 5 maps. Iem oakland against nip he was second best rated player behind rain, good to note in that final karrigan had less than 50 kills across 5 maps. Katowice 2017 when they lost 3-1 to astralis, NiKo highest rated player. Iem sydney 2017 that they lost to sk, second best rated player with rain, basicaly playing 2v5. It's a famous narative but it's far from true.

Yeah, they had one good chance and blew it. After that, the team had a lot of problems, for example Olof leaving for medical reasons and them playing with standins for a while. Karrigan said in interviews that once Olof returned, they thought it would go back to their winning days but it wasn't so easy, which then led to internal frictures and the eventual removal of Karrigan

Kind of, but they also lost some very big finals with that lineup where they were heavy favorites. One to NIP and one to Fnatic. They also struggled allot versus SK later on. The roster pretty much had a chance at an era, but because of all the lost finals, you can't even begin to discuss one.

The difference is that Messi and CR7 are limited to playing only with players from their country. NiKo played alongside Olofmeister, Rain, Karrigan, Guardian and didn't win a Major, and in another final he missed a shot by Deagle with his opponent on his back. Nothing relational to comparison.

2022-05-19 15:23
1 reply
I'm not denying that being on a team that speaks your native language is not an advantage, you lacked text interpretation on your part. In CS all players have the 'privilege' of having high-level players from their countries to play for big things, and it's not like in football, which is something limited like in a World Cup championship where you can only play with players from your country, a CS player knowing how to speak good English can compete at a high level with players from other countries without any restrictions. You mentioned FalleN as an example, but FalleN was an isolated and different case, since he comes from a very different culture from the culture of European or American players, adaptation is very difficult, so you don't see Brazilians in teams anymore foreign. It is very different, for example, in the case of an American playing in a team with Europeans, or a European playing in a team with Europeans from other countries, now you understand?

imo, G2 defaults to heavy aim play --- this is what a lot of teams with Niko end up relying on because it seems as though they count on that talent to open up the map. Relying on that instead of being known for, say, fundamental, strict gameplay means G2 will always be inconsistent because your aim won't always be 100%.... You need a system that operates well even when your aim is at 70, 80, etc. %. Like Navi. In fact, everytime G2 switched to attack side, it was just a lost...

Niko is a good player, but maybe when the game is in 3rd map and the team is in though position he goes mental and does bad calls and aim is no longer consistent. If you look at his stats from several games where his team is having though times in 3rd map then Niko's stats go significantly down compared to 1st map. He needs mental coaching.

NiKo is on the Counter-Strike scene since 2009 (13 years for now) In 1.6 he didnt achieved much team wise, but he was well known as a 13 years old prodigy that has insane aim In CS:GO individually he made TOP 20 6 times (4x TOP 5) and was two times in the major final (both of them ended up being a super close matchups) Its sad that in his 13 years old career he was so close to win the most valuable achievement for a CSGO pro player two times, but as we can see from his stats he is not gonna give up anytime soon, I hope G2 is gonna win a major some day
2022-05-18 17:54
NiKo with the Arteezy vibe both good players, Cursed players and both chokers at big games
2022-05-18 18:19
It's not about playstyle, rather mentality. Bad aura.

some shitty tournaments 99arena like 4 times masterschaft? IIRC and an ACER event. It wasnt like an amazing career or anything mousesports was and still is a dogshit org & team. But he carried them to a few B events and i think Acer was an A tier because it had flipsid3 and TSM
2022-05-19 07:49
I think this is the biggest achievement in mouz for him liquipedia.net/counterstrike/CEVO/Season.. 2nd place, yes i know, but they beat up Titan, Luminosity and NaVi in groups, lost to prime VP 3-0 in the final 😎

He missed the opportunity early on in his career by having an ego and being ignorant. Now his results are out of his hand.

I didn't say anything about his skill, I'm saying that he's been on teams in the passed where he had the chance to become great and establish an era but instead let his ego take over and made roster moves, etc. There are multiple people talking about how he and Karrigan clashed and how he didn't trust Karrigan as an IGL. Karrigan even said that in the Boston final Niko was basically ignoring him and at that point he knew they had lost. Now you can say that whatever happens to him is his own fault because he didn't take the opportunities he had before. He has no excuses is basically what I am saying.

2022-05-19 00:25
I think Niko's play style is all or nothing tbh. Either he is dominating or throwing/Baiting. Very high peeks but painful lows. Compare him to Ropz, Electronic. Way lower peak but consistent power.

2022-05-19 00:42
niko is way too emotional to be a consistent, tournament winning star player. legends like simple (at least in navi), snax, olof, and coldzera, are so consistently calm and collected in high pressure situations, while i feel like niko tilts quite easily. I also think there's never been any IGLs (besides karrigan in FaZe) who have been able to manage him (he's rarely had a solid role on his teams), and I get the sense that he clashes with IGLs he doesn't have 100% faith in, often putting pressure on himself to make calls, which is tough because of his tiltability and the effect that IGLing has on his fragging. there's no good solution for him, which is tough. I think a team based around the core of FalleN, hunter, and NiKo (with a good support player and some young talent) would work well. I'd be down to replace aleksib with fallen if they didnt already have m0nesy as an awper

He tilts way too hard always, 0 mental toughness and he never really over extends himself to make the needed impact plays anymore. Hunter is like the exact opposite - always positive and will take whatever risks he needs to win. Niko has a lot of skill and finesse but it really doesn't translate to wins.

Juss random thought , his reason of tilting might be cz of his past never achieved too many tittles even tho he has put in the efforts and all, and past shitty teammates, nvm juss psychology things.

he's weak mentally and always seems pissed out when not having 30 bombs and hanging at the top of scoreboard, his ego is so big that he cannot control it anymore and if g2's coach after military school cannot do it as well only therapist might help him

2022-05-19 16:03
He has had to play on mixed nationality teams all the time, they are historically super hard to win with. People dont really remember how few tournaments mixed EU teams have actually won

That's a necessary clarification. When I created this thread, was thinking about NiKo within recent history (last 3 years or so). According to my research, he won 7 big events with FaZe during their failed era but nothing since. Those were definitely significant but just overshadowed by the fact that they also lost a lot of big finals during that time and also couldn't manage to win any majors. I guess what my question boils down to is, "Why hasn't NiKo won anything important since Faze?" and "How highly should we value his accomplishments in Faze?"

faze 2019 was shit year everybody knows 2020 covid 2020 oct he signed with g2 in big lans he lost 3 finals which sucks, not fav against Navi but should have won the katowice where he choked sadly first not proper awper now IMO he cant play really well due to the igl
2022-05-19 19:07
He is not at the same level. He used to hard carry like 30 to 40 bombs in mouz and faze. But now he is not that good sadly

Niko has been scheisse since Kato playoffs and is the main reason they did not win that final. Sad but true.
2022-05-20 09:19
NiKo has to have the most unimpressive tropy haul for a consistently top 5 players the last 3 years, his last tropy was an online IEM New York with a last hurrah FaZe.
