GuardiaN definitely is a very good AWPer, but I'd put him in 2nd or 3rd place, in the same level as FalleN. As for S1mple, I'd put him just below that tier, as S1mple is a very nice player, but just can't compete these players in terms of pure AWP skill. Who I'd put first is kennyS. Though many people don't realize it as they haven't been paying attention to him, he is back to his prime, with his skills dwarfing that of any other AWPer in the game. Comaping his stats in the past three months to GuardiaN, FalleN, and S1mple, kennyS has the most AWP kills per round, kills, and assists, and the highest rating, impact, and k/d ratio, in all types of matches, including big events and LAN.
