G2 close in on NiKo deal

The Bosnian prodigy appears to have played his final game for FaZe on Friday as a move to the Berlin-based organisation looms on the horizon.

FaZe star Nikola "⁠NiKo⁠" Kovač is on the brink of completing a transfer to G2, HLTV.org has learned. It appears increasingly likely that the Bosnian will feature for his new team in the BLAST Premier Fall Series as everything points to an agreement being close at hand.

Sources have told HLTV.org that FaZe are already looking at potential candidates to replace NiKo if needed as they too will compete in the BLAST tournament, with their first match scheduled for October 29.

HLTV.org and 1pv.fr first reported on G2's interest in NiKo on September 18. It was reported that a transfer could take several weeks to finalise due to the complexity of the deal — which will involve one of the biggest transfer fees in the game — and the busy schedule that both teams had ahead of them.

NiKo's time with FaZe is coming to an end

As reported last month, François "⁠AmaNEk⁠" Delaunay is the likeliest to get the axe as G2 look to add even more firepower to the team with the signing of a star player who has six MVP medals to his name and made four consecutive appearances in the top-20 ranking between 2016 and 2019.

NiKo has been a part of FaZe's setup since March 2017, when he was signed from mousesports for a reported fee in the region of $500,000. He has won several international titles under the North American organisation and was close to finally adding a Major crown to his collection at ELEAGUE Major Boston 2018 before his team lost the final to Cloud9 in dramatic fashion.

Trophies have been hard to come by for FaZe in the last two years, even after the high-profile signing of Marcelo "⁠coldzera⁠" David in September 2019. After enduring a rough patch of form following this year's player break, the team had a triumphant run in IEM New York — at a time when G2 and FaZe were already locked in talks —, but then dropped off in DreamHack Open Fall, finishing ninth in the Regional Major Ranking (RMR) tournament.

G2 have also struggled for form since returning from the player break. The French team have won just seven of their last 20 matches, dropping from fifth in the world rankings to 11th. They have been placed in Group C of BLAST Premier Fall Series alongside Astralis, FURIA and MIBR, with their first match pitting them against Andrei "⁠arT⁠" Piovezan's side on November 2.

G2 declined to comment on this report.

Exactly. The stats need to be improved to take into account the entry roll. If you're entry and you always die first but always get traded into a favourable position, like jackz does, then the stats should give credit for that.

Because you already have kenny there as well, he needs support too + jackz is literally entry. So basically you have 4 star players and an IGL. Doesn't make sense at all...

kenny is dogshit at this point. NiKo's awp is better than kennys. Kennys plays better with riflers and pistols than with awp if u noticed that...
2020-10-25 14:08
Nah cause right now Nexa has a lot of the 3rd man in trade roles on T side, he can move to do more supportive passive things and let Niko/hunter do that at times and at other times trade off Jackz. On CT side amanek is an anchor which Niko is definitely capable of.
2020-10-24 18:55
Hunter and KennyS will perform significantly worse after the honeymoon period. Then they will remove either KennyS or Jackz and add either cold or rain.

Can be this also, or maybe try rebuild new team. Firepower is not everything in nowadays cs faze is perfect example, my opinion they should kick cold, try put rain into lurker, let broky play with rifle, kjearbye as entry and add IGL and real awp player.

all this because no good igl, kjearbye is bad because just put in old olof positions, rain had to be entry just run dry and kill something with no strats, cold just baiter a lot of times, broky great at clutches, and niko fake igl.

You almost feel bad for Coldzera. Dude literally moved continents to play with this one player. Was rumored to play with him in both MIBR and Liquid. Faze at this point gets an IGL and becomes a good team. It's not like they don't have the firepower to do it even without Niko or they disband IMO. Also I'm not sure this is the best move for G2. Jackz is not really a support player. The main reason for their underperformance has been Kenny just absolutely disappearing after being a top 10 player the first half of the year. But like all "super" teams it'll be really interesting to watch. If they can hit that Liquid/Faze level and actually keep it up I'll be impressed. Another thing I'll say is it's a good thing Niko is finally going to play under another IGL. Regardless of whatever else happens.

It’s like NiKo is aiming for being in the worst top team possible. Faze finally got a bit of succes and is moving upwards in the rankings, so he downgrades. Must assume NiKo likes a Challenge more than winning.

Getting tricked into the classic 'fluke a run get 6 more months' trap that orgs/players fall into all the time. Look at the last other 3 though. 9th, 13th-14th, 9th-12th. Where as on G2 they have potential to be consistently top 3 this faze team is lucky to consistently make quarters.

That might be your take on it, personally I think FaZe got a way higher peak than G2. Most of G2 is washed up and thinking it will be a top3 team is highly doubtfull, but I guess you are French and a G2-fan, so you believe... I just don't.

Hunter and nexa are relatively new talents. Kenny and Cold are the same age, same trajectory. Jackz is a bit older, like rain, but hasnt been in the tier 1 scene as long as him, and Niko is Niko. This team will be better than Faze is right now, and better than G2 is right now, idk that theyll be top 3 but a more consistent threat than either of them are currently putting up.

Kenny has a higher peak but more inconsistent, theyre also very different AWPers Kenny is 10x more aggressive and finds way more openings while Broky is used to clutch. Rain is used different in Faze than Jackz is in G2. Rain has way more freedom. And G2 improved so much once they got Nexa, thats a braindead take. Anyone can see how much their teamplay and decisions have improved. Honestly what they lack is someone that can take over games, Kenny doesn't do it enough anymore and hunter is still learning, but thats also not the type of player Broky is. Niko can definitely do that for them.

Just no IGL. You don't realize how good an IGL is until you don't have one. NiKo was a fragger calling himself an IGL. Faze did not have an IGL since karrigan left. Faze is just another no-brain NA org so they are going to probably disband. I do want to see the broky to mouz move so karrigan can squeeze everything out of him. Bymas after honeymoon is not very impressive player anyway.

I think theres more changes on the horizon. Most likely a duo deal with coldzera too and I can definitely see FaZe off-loading both NiKo & cold because of their salaries (and G2 affording both players) They also have a tight relation together with both living together. NiKo already spoke alot about cold and how well he gets along with cold + YNk G2 = kennyS, NiKo, huNter, nexa, coldzera. Coach: YNk G2 looking to put a mark on both EU CS and EU Valorant by building two powerhouse teams.

This is really great news for FaZe, the guy has really run that team and many players into the ground. I hope he can step back from leadership in G2 and just frag. He's a top 3 capable fragger imo but hasn't been showing it since he got it in his head that he's capable of leading, which he's demonstrably not.

Actually they've spent a few months outside of the top 10. But even that's beside the point. For perhaps the most expensive team in the competition, or close to it, to be 'consistent top 10' (not even) is really poor form. And because for some reason you seem to think it is satisfactory, ask yourself why they're churning through player after player and why he's finally leaving. It's not because he's been leading his team of superstars to success.

The G2's answer is easy. Niko will stop them. At the start everything will be fine and beaultiful just like a honeymoon. When the first couple of losses comes, Niko will start to tilt and slowly impose his tatical genius igl ideas until there is only him calling. Niko is the most wasted talent of CSGO history.

Its a very hyped move and will be interesting to see how G2 evolves. Def an upgrade in terms of sheer skill. I am not sure Amanek deserves the bench though, he has been more vital for G2 than Jackz last 3 months. Also the role of Amanek is more important for G2 now.

To be honest, I don't think that their win at IEM means anything. Their loss at Dreamhack proves it. And I'm sure 100% that their next results wouldn't be satisfactory. FaZe won't lost anything, such players as cold, kjaerbye, rain, under the calling of great IGL, can play no worse than G2 with NiKo. FaZe really can become better without NiKo, they just must pick AZR or fallen.

This is a huge plus for both teams. 1) G2 will have a great player who will make a great impact because of individual game. 2) FaZe finally will cure a cancer in the form of NiKo's ego, and they must pick an IGL (fallen or AZR)

i totally agree with you, both teams will win from this, cold, kjaerbye, and rain's performance will increase with a proper IGL, broky will be a better, consistent player too. and they will play with less stress since they'll play with a proper IGL. best of luck to both teams :D

G2 should do : -JaCkz -kennyS -AmaNEk And build a new international team around huNter and nexa, and I wouldn't take NiKo because I don't think he is what they need, for me they should take, allu, maybe he hasn't been anything special but he is pretty good and deserves a better team, zehN, because he would be a great star player for this team, and dycha, because he has been one of the best players from Poland, so the team would be : allu (AWPer) huNter- (Entry Fragger) zehN (Lurker) dycha (Supportive player) nexa (IGL)

I mean at least you cant ruin them, they were already close to rock bottom. I really hope faze picks an igl and leaves the roster as is, because we'll see how much better they'll be without niko. I've said it many times, -niko +igl and faze would be great.

It’s kinda sad as FaZe -5th player +IGL for a long time now would have worked and made FaZe consistent top 3.
2020-10-24 22:41
Noooo😭😭😭😭
2020-10-24 22:49
As much as this saddens me I’ve got to look at the bright side, maybe FaZe can succeed with another legend in Counter Strike and get a better IGL than NiKo. I remember back in 2015 rain and NiKo wanted to play together, then in 2017 they got that chance. For over 3 years they stayed on FaZe and now NiKo has left. I hope rain will stay on FaZe under a new IGL and show what he is made of as he has done previously. Thank you for the great years in FaZe, NiKo. It was an honour seeing you play under my favourite team.

Finally coldzera will be top 1 again. Bring fallen or azr or just buy aleksib by paying big money you got from selling Niko. Fallen is really good IGL. He was struggling because he didn't have good 5th player. Still mibr was top 10 with felps in early 2019. Azr good igl and good scout player in eco. He made 100T/ Renegades so much better. But he also had liaz, jks, jkaem. Aleksib :- If he can make t2/t3 team compete with t1 team. Imagine what he can do by using Coldzera (Goat of csgo, after device), rain (insane pistol and rifle player) and broky ( literally he play like standing fallen and clutch like broky, his style is unique ). Faze top 3 with aleksib. Top 5 with azr. Top 10 with fallen.

It wont matter shit. G2 will stay the same, maybe with occasional peaks here and there. Niko as a player cant bring anything critical for them. Were long past the days of "more firepowerrrrr" based teams. I think niko is an amazing individual player, one of the best to touch the game, but the only way for him to get somewhere with a team is if they wont play around him, and hell just be "another link in the chain". Only like this he had a chance of fulfilling his potential fully in terms of big tournament wins.
