During the end period of Fnatic’s dominance, three generational talents rose and made their first entrance into the global scene. They were Marcelo “coldzera” David, Oleksandr “s1mple” Kostyliev and Nikola “NiKo” Kovac.
Nikola “NiKo” Kovač has finally left mousesports after being acquired by FaZe Clan. NiKo has long been considered one of the strongest players in the scene, but he was unable to leave mouz because of his required buyout (which was reported to be $500,000).
European Counter-Strike team FaZe Clan has acquired Mousesports superstar Nikola “NiKo” Kovač, according to multiple sources close to the player and organization.
In the current age of Counter-Strike, I believe only four players are playing at superstar level status. This isn’t to say that no other players haven’t played at this level before or that they won’t get to that level in the future.
