NiKo: "I don't need to get frustrated"

Nikola "NiKo" Kovač talked to HLTV.org after FaZe picked up their first two victories at IEM Katowice. The Bosnian star explained his role in the team and talked about having in-game leadership off his shoulders and the match-ups in Group A.

FaZe have so far played two out of five matches in Katowice, defeating Immortals and fnatic in Group A with Nikola "NiKo" Kovač putting up great numbers.

We talked to the Bosnian star in his break during the fourth round of play on day one of IEM Katowice to find out how FaZe spent the week that they had after Las Vegas, whether his role changed in the transition, and what he expects from Group A.
