GuardiaN: "I'm not judging anybody"

Ladislav "GuardiaN" Kovács was the last interviewee of day one at DreamHack Winter 2014. He touched on various subjects, such as their matches leading towards playoffs, the playoffs matchups, who he would like to play further on and more.

Natus Vincere were on the verge of getting eliminated from groups, but they pulled through once again after a similar run at ESL One Cologne, this time against Flipsid3 on de_overpass.

They learned their playoffs matchup with dignitas right afterwards, which was one of the topics we talked about with Ladislav "GuardiaN" Kovács, alongside others, including their preparation, other groups' results, the cheating scandal and more.

Hit play below to watch the full interview:

Day two is now underway with NiP and HellRaisers going toe-to-toe, expect more video interviews like this one from today's matches as well.

What are you trying to say here? If it's some kind of a poorly formulated insult then I'll just keep on ignoring you.
2014-11-28 13:46
wtf? strikers english was practically perfect...did u mean guardian?
2014-11-28 14:24
'practically perfect'
2014-11-28 14:41
yes practically perfect, which means u could understand every word he said, so i dont understand why u would call it awkward...
2014-11-28 14:43
far from perfect
2014-11-28 14:46
ur insane imo, i really think u are talking about guardian and not striker
2014-11-28 14:49
It's not just about punctuation,it's also about his fluidity,pronounciation and choice of words. His vocabulary is clearly very limited when it takes him about 30seconds to formulate a question. For you it may seem like a 'practically perfect' spoken 'americanese', but for us people actually able to speak 'practically perfect' English, this was far from it.
2014-11-28 15:42
wtf you want? who the hell cares about fluidity,pronounciation and choice of words? at least it is easy to understand and everyone can get the point
2014-11-28 16:04
All I meant was, it would have been a better interview if it was done in czech and translated later. I didn't call his English bad, just 'awkward'.

oh sry mr. perfect you'll always criticize everything, dumbhead. rather stfu and scurry away, I never saw positive comments from you before. if you're so great why aren't you @ DH and why don't you make some interviews with players? ffs, sorry, that's none of your business. jesus christ.
2014-11-28 16:14 And as far as positivity goes, no I only talk positively about things I am actually positive about. If that happens to be rarely anything, than we will just have to deal with that won't we m8

"Overpass is one of our best maps" = Almost loses to FlipSid3 on Overpass
2014-11-28 12:42
almost doesn't count :D
2014-11-28 13:19
If you saw the match, both their matchup on mirage and overpass, you would know that they were trying to rely solely on aim, it just didn't work on overpass. On mirage they had 1 tactic on t, which was their typical a smoke. They won the round without casualties. On overpass they were playing idiotic, and that nearly lost them the match. They were probably trying to hide tactics for further games. In the overtime they started to play better though, flipside gave them the first round, and then they performed 2 tactics on t and won the overtime 4 - 0. They didn't even use their 4 molotov, b smoke, which worked on teams like LDLC.
2014-11-28 13:28
English so stronk :p
2014-11-28 12:45
stfu, he is not native American or English, of course he has to have some accent... arrogant prick
2014-11-28 12:46
Wtf??? I was just pointing it out for fun?? LOTS of people on HLTV make fun of people whenever they can, they have small dick, they can't do this and that.. It was NOT a personal shot at GuardiaN or anybody else having accent!! even myself has accent... Calm down!!!!!!!
2014-11-28 12:47
Ok so do you think people actually find it funny?! What if I made fun of something about you, would that be fun?? Open your eyes for gods sake! Say sorry to him!!!
2014-11-28 12:48

guardian is also a cheater. so is starix, shox, pasha, neo... the list goes on. it's a very sad truth. i sincerely hope valve has something up their sleeves. i suspect it's the reason they took pasha's pc so quickly yesterday. if you understand human psychology, you can understand why they are so silent and seemingly unconcerned about blatant cheating. it's a joke and they're all in on it. probably because of sticker money. as long as you can cheat your way into a major, you're golden.
2014-11-28 14:08
If you understand human psychology, you can understand, there are humans who don't give a fuck.
