It is already extremely hot outside and that means that July is in full swing. June on the other side brought some pretty intense moment of the Counter-Strike Global Offensive competitive scene!
That, as usual, it is time for our Player of the Month article!
There were two pretty major eSports events held past month – ESL One Belo Horizonte and Asia Championship. To distinguish the best player from June, we have analyzed the performance of all player in those two competitions.
The interesting fact is that both MVP players were already part of our monthly articles. However, we decided to go for the one, that makes the bigger impact of the game and helped more of his team.
He is a showmaker, extremely talented young player.
We are proudly presenting you, Nikola “NiKo” Kovac the best player in the world!
Niko was way above average stats in ESL One Belo Horizonte. He led his team to the first place in the tournament with an incredible performance.
He ended the competition with 1.39 rating, which is amazing. Moreover, NiKo made 0.88 kills per round and died only 0.54 which means that he is staying alive in one of every two rounds. Average damage per round was also amazing – 90.4.
We deepened the analysis by comparing Niko’s performance of June with the rest of his teammates.
As its clear from the infographic, Nikola was way ahead of the rest of his teammates in June. Only Guardian is close to him with 1.30. Rain, Karrigan and the new addition to the team Cromen, performed not so good with ratings of 1.12, 1.01 and 1.08.
We should mention that Cromen, had more matches past month since he played for Heroic before joining FaZe for the battles at ESL One Belo Horizonte.
Besides the ESL event, NiKo played for FaZe at the ECS Season 5 Finals, where he got his best performance for the month – rating of 2.41 against team Luminosity. There was only one critical moment in June – the match against Astralis, when the Bosnian played under his potential and ended with 0.78.
Nikola “Niko” Kovach is well-recognized as one of the best players in the world. Along with coldzera, s1mple and Fallen, he is part of every CS: GO highlights compilation.
His history in competitive gaming is dating back to early 2013 when he joined team Refuse. After two more years in iNation, GamePub and his face, Niko was transferred to the German giant mousesports at the beginning of 2015.
In that period, he establishes himself as one of the best in the world, famous for the insane Deagle plays that were able to turn every match in mousesports favor. In the 2017 transfer period, Niko was added to the international roster of FaZe Clan. Together with his teammates, they managed to claim the #1 in the world ranking. Next goal in front of the organization is to win the CS: GO major and we believe that Nikola will be on the basis of the success of the team!
