I dont get why he doesnt reload before the last kill.... its for the highlight, i know that, but its risk aint worth it.
2018-02-20 23:36
lol what risk, it's 5v1. very worth it

No its not, they just dont show the other kills... If you watch again you can see a dead CT on the ground before the last kill. Anyway, reloading is the safe choice, and should be the only choice. :)

W/e. people tend not to reload, and often its a costly mistake. Just reload before you hunt the kill..
2018-02-20 23:51
imagine if u left faze in 3v1 while they have the bomb 4Head

W/e. I still Think it's a stupid mistake
2018-02-21 04:13
For normal players like us it would be stupid, I agree. NiKo still had 3 other very very good players who could easily get the last kill left. He could have reloaded but pushing the last guy in the chaos was not that stupid

I know - I just dont think going for a flashy play in a major tournament is the right thing to do :) we saw what happened with the knife yesterday
2018-02-21 10:51
Maybe he didn't want to get caught reloading?

Agree with you however in this case it's a 1v4 and the last guy had his position known so it's a calculated risk I'd say.

I'm not saying it's likely. But there is a world where he miss his last 3-4 bullets and they get a plant or even win the round. I know you gotta feel amazing after the first 4 headshots, and maybe even a little invinclebe. But cs is a numbers game. Just as much as anything else you play the percentage game, and the chance of success is higher with a full gun. I was never a top tear player in 1.6, didn't have the time for that. But I was always smart, and it allowed me to reach well beyond my own level, which, if you ask me, is what it's all about...

I know there's a world where that happens, but I guess it's just a FaZe philosophy and they're all conscious of the risks and what they may face as consequence.

But then u need to consider that there is a world that the opponennt takes a better position while niko reloads and kills niko.

Why? He was on the site, and the opposition had to attack. Your comment makes no sense in a case like this.

i mean u said, that it was ok that he pushes him to force his ace and if he reloaded before that push, the opponent could have been in a better position to catch niko of if he pushes

Prolly bcs theres another pistol on the ground and he could get it and immediately fall back or immediately fighy again because of the t's distance to him

Not very creative, nor valid from a biased niko fan.

S1mple > Cold > Niko. The difference being that Niko doesn't have to be a god tier player all the time like S1mple or Cold do.
