The event held in Miami ended on April 15, with Team FaZe Clan taking the victory and scooping the $125,000 prize pool share home. Of course, nothing of this would possible without exceptionally performing players. It would only be appropriate to give out awards to the individuals as well, and so, the BLAST Pro Series Miami MVP is Nikola “NiKo” Kovač, FaZe’s in-game leader and rifler.
NiKo is a 22-year-old professional CSGO and a former CS 1.6 player from Bosnia. He first grabbed some broader attention after his impressive performances for mousesports, especially during ESEA Season 18. That is where he proved his outstanding aiming skills with a great sense of the game at such a young age.
He played for mousesports from the beginning of 2015 to 2017. That is when he switched to FaZe Clan and stayed with them ever since, making them quite lucky on the move. His performance is proven by his roles, and even as the team leader NiKo continues to move forward.
The Bosnian star had a fantastic tournament by reaching a team-leading 1.53 rating in the grand final, played against team Liquid. He left Miami with a rating of 1.44, which is the fourth biggest rating in his career on a Big Event.
Aside from this, NiKo topped 11 other important categories of the tournament. This includes rating, damage per round (97.7), kills per round (0.92) and KAST (77.2%). He didn’t stop there, and in five other stat’s he’s in top 5. Most notable of them being opening kills per round (0.16). This year’s BLAST Pro Series Miami MVP title is well deserved!
