(Epl s10 with mouz and recent tournaments with Faze)
Why is this forum obssesed with shitting on NiKo so much ?
Ropz plays worse than NiKo but to compensate that the team plays better.
Ropz plays 90% team plays 100%
NiKo plays 95% team plays 90%
I think the main reason why i myself consider ropz a better player is just because of the mentality
Skill wise i think they're very similar
Will we see g2 ropz in future when NiKo will leave?
Ropz will 100% be a top 5 player this year. He always had the potential, only he was playing in shit Mouz.
Is Niko better than ropz mechanically? Hell yeah, but by how much? Is he soooo much better than ropz that everything else doesn't even matter? Hell no.
ropz is calm is composed, while Niko is always tilted when things don't go his way.
In addition, being a good player also means you'd have to be coachable. ropz is coachable, he listens. If you follow karrigan's youtube channel, you can hear faze's in-game voice comms, ropz is the type of guy who doesn't say much but when he does, he gives important info. He does his things being a lurker, at the same time, he follows karrigan's order.
On the other hand, Niko was the one who got karrigan kicked in the first place. Honestly, I don't think Niko is coachable at all. I'm not trying to sh*t on him, it's my opinion. I'd take ropz over Niko any day tbh.
ropz is better rain
rain is better niko
was niko fan for years but after i heared him in hias twitchstream talking after asked who is the best player: "...there is me ....and.. s1mple"
sry but so who talks like that doesnt get better unless he learns to get humble.
and you can clearly see he is not able to form a consistant team.
you literally cant compare, its two different systems with different players
am I the only one thinking that they are two completely different players and they are basically not comparable?
niko wants a system designed spesifically for himself.
on the other hand, ropz can adapt to pretty much any system.
when you have ropz on your team, you don't need to compromise from your team play.
with niko, it should be all about niko, though.
niko is very talented. he can change. he can improve his team play mentality i think if he wants to. but will he do that?
no, but he made the team as a unit better. 4 1.10-1.20 players supporting eachother without aweak link > one 1.20-30 and several 1.01.
I mean the main reason NiKo hasn't won a major yet is because once IGL meets NiKo and discovers his playstyle and personality, they start to question their calls and underperform not only as an individual but as a caller it leads to bad team chemistry and chokes. I don't think that NiKo ruins team chemistry on purpose, he gave an IGL role away but still something goes wrong here. I just think that igl immediately lose confidence after being around NiKo for 1+ month.
ropz work bc karrigan already said in interview, FaZe need heavy hitter lurker to win something
niko don't want to be lurker when karrigan told him so
broky altho young is not crumble under clutch pressure
twistz is HS machine like olof was
lastly, karrigan be the bait for playmaker rain to create something
