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.
