Why does ax1le not get the same credit that Niko does?
England TheWizardofUh27898 
ax1le has been consistently outperforming Niko as a rifler in 2022. hltv.org/stats/players/compare/3741/niko.. hltv.org/stats/players/compare/3741/niko.. hltv.org/stats/players/compare/3741/niko.. He also managed to actually win an event something Niko hasnt done since 2019.

he does hltv.org/forums/threads/2660903/ax1le-un.. but only by extremely smart users who know what they are talking about, like me

But you hear analysts playing the rusty trombone on Niko, and not really doing the same with ax1le.

cuz niko is kinda superstar and have a lot of fans
2022-10-06 13:31
because saying the name NiKo in CS is like saying 'bomb' in an airport, it's a phrase everyone knows and cares about whether they love it or hate it, so it brings lots of attention
2022-10-06 13:40
well NiKo has been a T1 player for over 6-7 years, Ax1Le is amazing, but he is still kinda unknown compared to NiKo

Didn't MauiSnake call Ax1le the best rifler of 2022? Didn't Bleh echo his opinion after the Faze x C9 game at EPL? I feel as though the praise Ax1le has received is proportionate to his success.

I agree mens))

Also why the fuck is Faze vs Sprout on the C stream? Who the fuck are these casters.

I agree somewhat hes severely underrated although if u watch cs even a decent amount, u know hes the best rifler itw rn. Watching Ax1Le rifle reminds me of like Messi dribbling its just pure beauty
2022-10-06 13:33
everyone who knows cs knows ax1le is the top G

Ax1le hasn't yet shown the longevity of a player like NiKo, remember that he only started playing big LAN games at the end of 2021. He'll get his flowers eventually, but he has to put up numbers like this for a few more years for the community to put him in the conversation.

People were talking about niko the same way when he was the same age as ax1le.

Niko was playing LANs at T1 early in his career. Thanks to the online era, Ax1le was robbed of this experience. I'm not saying Ax1le isn't a legit rifler, but there's going to be some lag in bringing him into the GOAT rifler conversation.

Well because back in the day we were watching players like pasza biceps with their 500ms reaction, and then theres this niko guy who gets crazy one taps occasionally Nowadays it's not a big deal

NiKo has been doing that for years upon years now, in multiple teams. He's just a much larger figure and personality in the scene than Ax1le is so therefore people talk about him more

NiKo has just been around longer and there isn't really much media for C9 that is accessible to at least English speaking fans which constitutes most of HLTV If the fact he was actually insane was stated more like in comparisons to other riflers or he did more content he would probably get the credit he deserves more
2022-10-06 13:49
Ax1le much better than NiKo /closed
