BLAST Fall was a spectacle of in-game skill, but it also brought us some great crowd-pleasing rosters. We saw JKS on Complexity, A reunited Astralis and finally, we got to see Nikola ‘NiKo’ Kovač make his way to G2.

The Bosnian playmaker made the jump from FaZe Clan to G2 as he was growing frustrated with having to IGL for FaZe due to them being unable to sign an appropriate IGL. Also, he wanted to play with his older cousin Nemanja ‘huNter’ Kovač so he jumped at the opportunity at G2.

NiKo and huNter were the leading duo for G2 Esports during their debut as a pair. The blood brothers led G2’s charge through Group C, taking down FURIA, MIBR, and Astralis along the way.

But just how did the Bosnian talents develop such good synergy with very little preparation? Here’s the story of NiKo & huNter at BLAST Fall Regular Season.

OG Esports are reportedly dropping French veteran Nathan ‘NBK-’ Schmitt from their CSGO team. The move would be the org’s first roster change since entering the esport.


  • NBK- is reportedly getting dropped from OG.
  • OG had early exits at BLAST Spring Groups & IEM Katowice.
  • This is OG’s first roster move since entering CSGO in late 2019.

OG Esports to kick NBK-

After an exciting debut in the CSGO space, OG Esports are making a change to their lineup and it’s NBK- who is going to get cut, first reported by ViKarM.

Within a year of OG’s existence in CSGO, the org managed to be a top 10 team but have struggled to make deep runs at events, let alone win some trophies.

If they drop NBK-, then OG will be looking to make improvements in its formula, which could signal that the club is ready to make a play on a big signing.

Astralis, G2 Esports, Team Liquid, Team Vitality will join OG in the Showdown. Only two of the 16 teams will go through to the BLAST Spring Finals
