what are you on about? In most of the frags shown in the vid, he: 1. faces enemies alone without a teammate to bait 2. takes straight up aim duels, not lurking behind enemy lines or "shooting behind their back".
2019-04-18 16:41
He is baiting don't take it to your heart
2019-04-18 18:58

Finally someone who sees the reality and knows that niko is a skilless bot who just baits and shoots from behind.

Definitely a deserved MVP by the fact that he has to IGL which isn't his best side and still performed as good as when he wasn't the IGL yet.

I love how the NiKo video takes only a few days to come out, but the dev0ce video took so long and is absent of any exciting plays.

NiKo's choking prowess is nothing compared to the Liquid boys' Those Muricans were born in the choke.
