Virtus.pro add GuardiaN for EMS Cup

MIRAA
May 28th, 2013 17:53

Virtus.pro have announced they will be using Ladislav "GuardiaN" Kovács' services for today's RaidCall EMS One Cup #3.

Due to unfixable PC problems Dauren "AdreN" Kystaubayev is experiencing today, Virtus.pro are being forced to use a stand-in for the RaidCall EMS One Cup #3 and they have chosen Slovakian star Ladislav "GuardiaN" Kovács.

Kovács has been on the lookout for a new team since his stint in TCM-Gaming came to an end when Richard "shoxie" Papillon left for VeryGames. The next stop for him will be a short time with the CIS giants, who are still the only team to defeat NiP on LAN.


GuardiaN to help Virtus.pro in RC EMS One Cup #3

The move is claimed to be for today's cup only, as Kystaubayev is expected to join the other four Virtus.pro members, who are already in Kiev, for their bootcamp in the upcoming days.

Virtus.pro's roster for RaidCall EMS One Cup #3:

Russia Mihail "Dosia" Stolyarov
Russia Sergey "Fox" Stolyarov
Ukraine Emil "kucher" Akhundov
Ukraine Kiril "ANGE1" Karasiow
Slovakia Ladislav "GuardiaN" Kovács

Kazakhstan Dauren "AdreN" Kystaubayev (unavailable)

This is some serious shit now. I hope VP won't act as clowns and lose to low-tier teams.
2013-05-28 18:11
Sad for AdreN - has problems with inet and stuff, but this is a good step in.
2013-05-28 18:13
HAHAHAHA NICE MOVE SICK INSANE
2013-05-28 18:14
After what happened with TCM, and him almost announcing his retirement, wonder if he was motivated enough to practice with the AWP until now.
2013-05-28 18:14
nice
2013-05-28 18:19
Holy shit...will be freakin nasty guardian just working with hes awp taking entry kills every round..looking forward to see this.

2013-05-28 18:46
2 awpers ?? :|
2013-05-28 18:54
So what?? I hate this kind of comment... like if there were a rule about "only one awp is allowed per team". What matter is their skills and their teamplay. They are all great and skilled players, it doesn't matter at all if there are one or two snipers on the team.
2013-05-28 19:33
actually 3 and angel:D
2013-05-28 20:01

Team Tactics : Dosia: Fox drop ze AWP for GuardiaN. *GuardiaN gets Ace* Dosia: Good drop Fox, good drop.
2013-05-28 19:48
fox is better with awp than guardian
2013-05-28 20:58

2013-05-29 14:04
you have NO idea
2013-05-31 02:36
please.....i propably have 100x more 'idea' than you ever will

2013-05-28 20:02
nvm I see why they "had" to drop adren. Sad to see, but Guardian is an excellent player, interested to see what fox does in terms of awping if he switches to rifle or not

2013-05-28 21:21
impressive awper, good caller. I'd really hope that he replaces ex6 in vg.
2013-05-28 21:29
such a sick player, that double was incredible
2013-05-28 21:39
Could be the best team in the world if this is permanent. NiP-Virtus Pro clashes would be epic.
2013-05-28 21:42

They are better with AdreN, GuardiaN is a good player, but still overrated..
2013-05-28 22:51
with AdreN they are practising, with GuardiaN they don't. GuardiaN is not overrated, he is one badass player..
2013-05-28 22:57
Do you even watch VP games? AdreN's input to the overall teamplay/recent success is far more valuable to them than Guardians skill with awp. If you think +Guardian -AdreN will transform them into some beast of a team then you are seriously one deluded fanboy, or maybe you dont understand team chemistry (eg: fifflaren is still in NiP)
