Video: NiKo - The Balkan Prodigy 2

HLTV.org's moviemaker Josip "brcho" Brtan has compiled a four-minute sequel to NiKo - The Balkan Prodigy, which features some of his best actions from his time in mousesports.

Upon Nikola "NiKo" Kovač moving to mousesports, Josip "brcho" Brtan put together a highlight reel called NiKo - The Balkan Prodigy.

Now that his tenure in the German organization is approaching one-and-a-half years, the HLTV.org moviemaker compiled a sequel to the aforementioned movie.

Hit play below to see some of the best actions we've seen from the Bosnian player who quickly rose to prominence during his time in mousesports despite warming up the bench for a few months in 2015:

It was released about a year and a half ago, around time when he joined mouz youtube.com/watch?v=vAYGiC1rdXs
2016-08-19 20:11
good idea to put this last action "what does he have to do to win this game for his team?" great movie as always :)

2016-08-20 01:39
yeah bc niko can never win anything mousesports bc they are so bad. Even if niko would get 40+ kills everytime, maybe they could reach playoffs lol and coldzera with ecokills reaches finals everytime bc he has the best team atm
2016-08-20 16:48

zzzz, im sorry but your editing style is so fucking boring same slow music nearly every edit caster voices in every clip slow motion/3rd person pov before a frag, quick transition to 1st person and then screen lights up on the first frag every time idk how to say it without being rude but everytime i see an edit from you (which is the majority, as you are the main editor i presume) i skip it hltv please +MAKKU
2016-08-19 20:38
if you're looking to the editing to keep you entertained, then i don't know what to tell you, man. i prefer brcho to most of the editors here, because he never lets anything about the editing or music choices detract from the footage. his style is consistent and constant, which gives the viewer a better sense for the skill that's on display.
2016-08-19 21:00
its just my opinion ofc but i greatly prefer makku, athid, proutounz, krrr, etc youtu.be/PPHYeb6Rdp4 this one by makku for example - doesnt suffer from overly cinematic slow editing + caster voices and just isnt boring as fuck in general
2016-08-19 22:41
same here makku & prountounz > brcho > athid and krr in my opinon though athid has had some sloppy edits before to say the least.
2016-08-20 00:30
well to each their own then. for me, this was by far the best video i've seen on hltv over the past couple of months...
2016-08-20 03:48
Lol you are talking so out of your ass. brcho is easily the best moviemaker here
2016-08-20 11:08
all highlight videos're boring as fuck.

i mean shes not that bad as a caster... but sometimes she really kills the mood on great plays with her monotone voice :x
2016-08-20 18:35
I swear this is probably the best compilation of frags i've ever seen. Not that quality of production or music selection, but simply the frags are SO FUCKING GREAT.

amazing player, i like hes crosshair :D
2016-08-20 01:52
played vs him numerous times when he was 13/14 and even then he was very much the best player on his team. this was in cs 1.6. he has obviously hit his stride in CSGO and perhaps peaked in a shit game with a shit team. its a shame because its a waste of talent but who cares really because its csgo?
2016-08-20 04:34
great frag but really boring music and edit. this song is well used too. today so many frag highlight or movie editors tend to use this slow type song much. but they use emotional caster voice too. so I always be confused because caster voice let me be fun and hot but slow musics make me relax and cool.it dose not suit completely. I need hot movies not like this strange combination.
2016-08-20 05:30
Real CS GOD
2016-08-20 05:47
Great frags but 3:29, like wtf? Did he know he was there previously?

Holy shit, sick player
2016-08-20 07:26
brcho if you are reading my comment, then can you tell me which method do you use to record frags ? thanks :)
2016-08-20 08:06
fraps 50fps with timescale 0,2 - getting the outcome in virtualdub of 250fps

Nice video, except for the slowmotion/fast forward bits in the editing, it doesn't fit CSGO edits. It just takes away from the feeling
