NiKo claims BLAST Pro Series Copenhagen MVP award

Nikola "NiKo" Kovač has claimed the Most Valuable Player award of BLAST Pro Series Copenhagen by HLTV.org and betway.

The Bosnian led FaZe to their first title with the new lineup in Copenhagen with an overall 1.33 rating over the course of seven maps the team played en route to the trophy, only once dropping below the 1.00 rating mark, in a loss to Liquid that had no competitive effect.

Otherwise, NiKo was the main driving force behind the European side's four victories in the group stage that earned them a spot in the grand final, putting up three consecutive performances rated above 1.60. Although he didn't reach the same peaks in the grand final, he still played a pivotal part in the title decider as the second-highest rated player of the series.

NiKo earned his second MVP medal of 2019 in Copenhagen

Overall, the 22-year-old boasted numbers such as the fifth-most damage per round (92.8), third-most kills per round (0.84) as well as the fourth-most assists per round (0.18), which led to a tournament-high 78% KAST, showing his incredible consistency round-to-round.

This award marks NiKo's sixth MVP in total and his second in 2019, after he spearheaded FaZe in their only other big-event trophy run this year at another BLAST Pro Series stop, in Miami.

It is somewhat easy to believe that a player is better than his team mate as we look at status but what we hardly see is the effort of the other players that show us that without a doubt Jefrey Epstein didn't kill himselft.

If the 3 1v3s turns into a big advantage, of course. Just like CR7, he ONLY makes goals, nothing else, no drible, no assists, nothing, only the last touch to the goal.

This might shock you now, but Counter Strike is indeed a team based game, where you play in a team. So you need a team with teammates to play and win against other teams. You see where I want to go with that?
2019-11-02 23:28
i'm not talking about that, i'm asking if this is a tier999 event why didn't s1mple and his team win it ?
