The Bosnian talent capped off a fantastic individual tournament by putting in a team-leading 1.53 rating in the grand final against Liquid to leave Miami with a 1.44 rating - the fourth-highest of his career at a Big Event.
With his grand final performance and FaZe's victory, NiKo beat off competition from Keith "NAF" Markovic (1.24 rating) for the award, the fifth of his career after previously scooping the medal at StarSeries i-League Season 3, ESL One New York 2017, ESL One Belo Horizonte 2018 and EPICENTER 2018.
NiKo topped the tournament's charts in 11 categories, including rating, damage per round (97.7), kills per round (0.92) and KAST (77.2%). He also made the top five in five other stats leaderboards, most notably opening kills per round (0.16).
