>valde is #20
>guardian is not on the list
Guardian has played like three times the amount of maps as valde at Big Events, and beats his rating at Big Events (1.12 vs Valde's 1.10), and especially at Majors (1.16 vs Valde's horrible 0.99). Valde DOES beat Guardian in online matches and LAN overall, but considering those are both IN SPITE of being much worse at all big events and the majors, it means that rating advantage is at lower-tier events and online matches. Plus, Guardian has many more achievements under his belt for 2018 (and that includes shit like making second place at the Boston major and IEM Katowice), seeing as Valde only really won, what, one notable LAN (which was DHM Stockholm), and even that, purely based on weighting in the ranking, wasn't as big as FaZe's wins at Epicenter or IEM Sydney. Oh, and don't forget that GuardiaN won the MVP for IEM Sydney, while valde won one for...Open Valencia. An MVP at an event with teams like Astralis, mousesports, fnatic, NRG etc, versus a LAN with teams like...uhh...Luminosity and G2, I guess?
If valde made it to #20, Guardian WILL be on this list.
