1. Nikola "NiKo" Kovač from mousesports to FaZe Clan
Everything begins and ends with NiKo. Well, at least our list does. Each transfer we've included is here for different reasons. NiKo's most recent move is a great player seeking redemption, Snax was a desparate attempt at relevancy by an org always on the brink of it, s1mple was a gifted nomad that found his home, Kjaerbye was a good player that thought he could be great.
In neither of these cases did we have the best current player make a switch at the height of his power. However, that is exactly what happened when NiKo completed his first big transfer from mousesports to FaZe Clan.
After seeing no team success whatsoever, NiKo finally got the move he wanted when FaZe came calling. Sadly for both parties, this marriage did not lead to the biggest prize and a divorce followed some three and a half years later. (Image credit: FaZe Clan via Twitter)
