G2 Esports don't sign players often but when they do, it's a banger. Their CS:GO squad pulled something like that by signing one of the most accomplished players in the game, NiKo.
NiKo has been a member of FaZe Clan for three and a half years and one of the team's pillars but it appears the time has come for him to move on. In a statement about the transfer to G2, NiKo noted his time at FaZe had ups and downs but he would cherish the memories made there.
If there are any regrets, it is that the crew didn't manage to "bring a major trophy to such a legendary organisation" but overall the stint with the organisation remains as a positive experience for Kovač. The CS:GO superstar also thanked the people he worked with, with shoutouts for Rain and Robert "RobbaN" Dahlström and Håvard "rain" Nygaard.
NiKo's new memories will be made in G2 jersey where he has reunited with his cousin, Nemanja "huNter-" Kovač, who he shared competitive Counter-Strike spirit from a young age . The team captain here is Nemanja "nexa" Isaković, with whom huNter- has been inseparable in the professional career which should make NiKo's acclimatisation much easier.
As you might expect from G2 Esports by now, the big announcement was revealed in a meme format.
The more serious announcement on the official website noted that the team will be evaluated in order to find the best fit going forward since there are six active members on the team.
