GuardiaN: "Make more than CLG Red"

Our final and winners' interview from IEM San Jose features Na'Vi's Ladislav 'GuardiaN' Kovács and touches on both the team's win and various other topics.

Na`Vi made short work of TSM in the grand final, which allowed the Eastern European team to return to its Cluj form following a disappointing run at CEVO Season 8.

HLTV.org spoke with Ladislav "GuardiaN" Kovács once again and covered topics ranging from the game to recent hot topics in the CS:GO scene.

You will be able to find our previous interviews from IEM San Jose as well as other clips on our Youtube channel here.

I added subtitles for the first 1:30. Apologies yet again guys, something is quite wrong with our famous dildo mic so the camera started recording sound.

2015-11-24 00:58

2015-11-23 07:44
hahaha fucking shahzam
2015-11-23 07:54
Why he said that?
2015-11-23 12:49
someone asked him on stream and he tried to act he knows everything and said CLG red get paid more than navi XDdd
2015-11-23 13:52
I mean, it doesnt even make sense... CLG Red is tier 8 if compared with male teams. Shahzam and his stupid comments strikes again...
2015-11-23 16:23
Shahzam mad cuz bad.LMAO
2015-11-23 13:42

2015-11-23 15:39
can anyone confirm that those bitches really are getting paid? up until now i was of the opinion that they dont get shit apart from travel expenses and gaming gear. what really do they do to justify giving them money..

Being girls I guess? Gender equality???? I dont know. What I do know tho is that they should not get paid for shit. Girls are extremely bad at every computer game. Like, the best female team would get 16-2 by a team like Vexed.. Jesus christ.
2015-11-23 13:33
its fine if they get paid for the stuff they do for their organization. however, i doubt that what exposure they bring for sponsors and whatever else their job is, i doubt that comes even close to what navi do for their orga. whether u wanna delete all female leagues and such so a girl team like that hardly exists anymore, thats a different question and is not easy to answer. whatever, as long as what guardian said is true and the navi guys (and any other top cs pro) get paid well.
2015-11-23 13:37
They should som GN team YP
2015-11-23 20:57
I can't speak to what they get from their org but female tournament winnings are nothing to shake a stick at.

Yes because you can alias bind aimhacks, wh or a bhop script. Nice thinking there.

u r not can vacban4 jompskrip r u fk u?
2015-11-23 15:45
Do you even know what a jump script is????
2015-11-23 15:37
smoke script causes u to do something automatically instead of manually, same with the other things i mentioned (except wh u cant do that shit manually). u clearly didnt understand the point
2015-11-23 15:43
Except you can literally type it from memory unlike say a bhop script or aimhack
2015-11-23 16:18
thing is, youre still not doing it yourself
2015-11-23 20:36
I also don't use buy binds doesn't mean they should be banned. Also ntWeeabooButEvilWeeabooIsBest
2015-11-23 20:38
you still dont seem to understand the point im trying to make, lets just agree to disagree WeeabooWarrior>evilweeaboo<?>normal weeaboo

2015-11-23 23:18
i dont think the hand mic is on, this is camera mic hence all the background noise
2015-11-23 08:00
yup, I added subtitles for that part now
2015-11-23 08:37
good guy stich
2015-11-23 09:21
Would you consider adding a transcript of interviews? Would be good for people who don't want to waste mobile data along with other reasons

2015-11-23 08:15
so... shahzam is bullshit, hltv and navi confirm?
2015-11-23 08:23
stich best interviewer that background noise however was a bad mesh with GuardiaN's voice
2015-11-23 09:04
Why do people actually believe shahzam or take this guys word as he was a reliable source for anything? he was the retarded guy that went on and claimed iBP threw the game then went on summits stream and heavily denied it lying to everyone's face. oh +he blocked me because i asked if its okay to make fun of pakistan after he made fun of another country
2015-11-23 09:04

interesting opinion on jumpscripts. also stich is finally a guy who's actually able to interview people with interesting questions and not the "put us through the game" question you in every interview normally.
2015-11-23 09:19
I think olofm is right: jumpscripts should be banned.

because TSM seems to (ab)use them so heavily for smokes? I dont know. I never bothered learning them as they depend on so many things its not even funny, rather try a different approach. (ping, server lag, tickrate, fps, script nor working properly...)
2015-11-23 11:43
Not because of TSM, but for the idea of the game. The more skill you have, the better you are. Throwing a smoke from mirage a ramp to b shouldn't be A 100% sure thing. It's so insane. It should need perfect timing and angle.
2015-11-23 12:23
i really dont care whether its a 100% thing or not to land a certain smoke. thats fine. i actually like it better than watching teams lose rounds bcs of missed smokes all the time. but if ur cheating to achieve that, its not at all worth it.
2015-11-23 12:59
totally agree.Anyone remebers Snax's smoke on nuke from t spawn to heaven while running?That was some next level shit,never saw someone doing something as hard as that ;).

What the hell about CLG red? Someone please explain? I can't hear anything =/ PS: Stich please let me touch your manly breasts <3
2015-11-23 09:30
shahzam? said that clg red makes more money than NAVI.
2015-11-23 09:43
pornstars do earn a lot
2015-11-23 10:44
the quote in the title makes me lose respect for u...you think we actually care about who makes more between navi and clg red? Out of that entire iview u chose the least important thing to quote bc it would maybe cause drama and the kiddies would maybe be drawn to it. Please dont turn this site into the "Keeping up with the csgo Kardashians" show...
2015-11-23 09:56
why dont we care whether navi makes more or less money than clg red? its definitely something to talk about. guardian is the best player in the world, plays for a top5 team in the world and in this plays a large part in filling up big arenas and drawing 100k+ people to twitch for every big lan. it would indeed be quite disgusting if he'd make less money than some girl team that would get shit on in the faceit master league, let alone pro league.

CLG Red makes a lot of money from streaming and public appearances so I doubt NaVi makes as much as they do.
2015-11-23 11:54
But NaVi gets prize money, sticker money,clg red players doesnt earn that much from streaming so im pretty sure NaVi makes more but that doesn't really matter if CLG wants to waste their money on that girl team :D

who gives a shit if girls get paid too, all signed players should be salaried in 2015 in the current scene. there is more money than ever in CS, plenty to go around.

yep shouldnt get caught up in exactly what the numbers are as long as they are all paid enough to live
