guardian 4 big event EVP's at all t1 events with most if not all t1 teams
cold had 4 events with full level t1 competition can't take that away from him. The other 3 were Zotac, completely irrelevant tournament with 0 top tier competition. CS Summit 2 C9 and Liquid attended. The rest of the teams were top15+ and terrible during that period of time. Even torqued with washed swag, azk, and steel attending. The only real competition at Istanbul was Astralis. Washed Virtus. Pro, c9 when they were bad, NiP when they were bad, and a failing SS attended. He should be getting the EVP's at these events because there is no top tier competion compared to the events guardian goes to. I would rather have a player like GuardiaN who had a monster first half of the year, carrying his team in the finals of IEM Sydney and the major instead of a player who just has good stats. One of the biggest parts in deciding who is the better player is the eye-test. For example, for the best player in the world, if not all time, s1mple 100% fits the eye test. Compared to a player like device, he doesn't fit the eye test and doesn't show as much skill as compared to device. All in all, GuardiaN passes the eye test, has 1 MVP at a 100% t1 tournament, 3 EVPs, compared to a player who has 4 EVPS and .4 better rating.
