Esports Transfers №3: How Much Does NiKo Cost?

Jan 07 2021 16 min read

In this latest episode of Esports Transfers, we look into the story of NiKo as well as his worth as a player.

At the start of December, WePlay Esports officially launched Esports Transfers, a new independent platform designed to answer some of the most important questions in the field: how much are esports athletes worth? How much does it cost to transfer a player? Do organizations overpay for their services or not?

We conduct an in-depth analysis of both statistical and game data, through which we obtain a result that is accurate to market value. The calculations are based on five different points: leadershipmarketabilitystabilityskill, and demand. It's worth noting that each point is composed of various sub-factors as well.

Esports Transfers №1: dupreeh

Esports Transfers №2: electronic

In the previous episodes of Esports Transfers, we looked into the market values of Danish superstar Peter "dupreeh" Rasmussen and Russian rifler extraordinaire Denis "electronic" Sharipov. In this third installment, we dive into the story of Nikola "NiKo" Kovač, the beast of Bosnia and Herzegovina. NiKo is a familiar name to any fan of Counter-Strike. While he's renowned for his incredible "one-deags," NiKo is deadly with any weapon. At only 23 years old, the Bosnian has already accomplished what many only dream of, attending nine Majors and lifting countless trophies during his tenures with mousesports and FaZe Clan. In what was probably the biggest signing of 2020, G2 Esports acquired the services of NiKo, thus finally uniting with him with his cousin, Nemanja "huNter-" Kovač. Having made the HLTV Top 20 for the past four consecutive years, NiKo is undoubtedly one of the best players in the world, but just how much is the superstar worth? Make sure to watch the video to find out!
