NiKo has been on mousesports since mid-2015, and has risen to become one of the most mechanically-gifted players in the world. His skill surpassed those of his teammates, but due to a large buyout, organizations were unable to negotiate transfers.
FaZe Clan has reportedly met this sum, and will use NiKo to fill the gap left by aizy.
FaZe Clan’s roster is now reported to be:
Finn “karrigan” Andersen
Håvard “rain” Nygaard
Aleksi “allu” Jalli
Fabien “kioShiMa” Fiey
Nikola “NiKo” Kovac
This roster move has not yet been confirmed by FaZe or NiKo.
