G2 have confirmed the signing of NiKo from FaZe.
The rumour mill has been in overdrive over the last month suggesting that G2 were in the process of signing Nikola “NiKo” Kovač from FaZe. G2 have now finally put a rest to all of the speculations by announcing the signing of the Bosnian superstar, accompanied by a video that fictionally depicts the kidnapping of NiKo, with G2 AWPer kennyS uttering the words “We’re finally gonna win some games!”
NiKo represented FaZe for more than three years and cemented his place among the world’s elite players during this time period, winning ten LAN tournaments and obtaining multiple individual awards.
“With tears in my eyes, I have to say goodbye to everyone who was involved throughout my time in FaZe, all the players that I played with, all the staff behind that was always there for me and all the fans that have supported us throughout this period,” NiKo said in a statement on twitlonger. “It was a wild run with a lot of ups and downs, so many good memories that I will cherish forever, it sucks that we couldn’t bring a major trophy to such a legendary organization, but no one regrets it and is hurt more than me.”
NiKo will be making his debut for the team alongside his cousin, Nemanja “huNter-” Kovač, on Monday against FURIA at BLAST Premier Fall Series.
G2’s roster now looks as follows:
