GuardiaN could miss DH Malmö

Natus Vincere star Ladislav "GuardiaN" Kovács has revealed that he will "probably" miss DreamHack Masters Malmö due to his nagging wrist problem.

The 24-year-old has been playing through pain for some time now and was Na`Vi's worst performer at MLG Columbus with an event rating of 0.87 - one of his lowest ever since joining the team.

It is still unclear whether Ladislav "GuardiaN" Kovács will undergo surgery or simply take some rest in order to avoid a constant recurrence of the problem, which also seems to affect Olof "olofmeister" Kajbjer -  the only fnatic player to have a sub-1.0 tournament rating in Columbus.


GuardiaN was not at his best in Columbus 

Both Na`Vi and fnatic are due to compete at DreamHack Masters Malmö, which will kick off on April 12th. A total of $250,000 will be on offer at the event, featuring teams from Europe, North America and China.

Definitely is, one of the best players in the world can potentially miss one of the most competitive LAN's this year.
2016-04-04 15:57
Most important Lans ... DH Malmö is a Tier2 Lan Obv.
2016-04-04 16:33
It has a 250k prize pool and has all of the best teams in the world there. Are you fucking high or do you not understand what a top tier LAN is?
2016-04-04 16:40
Tier 1 Lans this Year: Majors Alibaba ELeague Tier 2: All thos 10 2Day ESL / DH Events
2016-04-04 16:54
That's not how it works. It's a top tier LAN if it involves all of the top teams. The prize pool is hardly relevant (and it's still substantial at that!)
2016-04-04 16:59
You're one of those retards who thinks more money = tier 1 aren't you? LMAO. We don't even know who the teams for those LANS are yet and you're already saying tier 1 just because of the money, you absolute fucking mongaloid. There is speculation that most of the top teams won't even be in E-league. Still consider it tier 1, pleb? Absolute braindead kid, literally gold nova confirmed.
2016-04-04 17:36
wtf?:D
2016-04-04 20:01
man, half a year ago it would be a Major lan, if u consider the fact that the prize pool is 250K, and all of the top teams are attanding there. Fuk is wrong with you ?

this is all due to very low sensitivity play both olofm and guardian are very low sens players docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1UaM765-S..
2016-04-04 15:04
According to a link GuardiaN really have some low-sens settings, but the olof one are just normal I would say. So something is broken in your logic.
2016-04-04 15:55
olof's sens is not that low
2016-04-04 16:14
rofl no, guardian has said that it's because he was injured playing footnball when he was younger

markeloff is actually an option. He admitted many times that he is has been practicing awp for couple of months to play as a secondary awp for F3. Considering close relations b/w him and other Na'Vi members it is definitely a possibility

2016-04-04 15:39
Too much constant stress on the wrists. I rode a motorcycle for years and my wrists are a problem. Playing computer games in particular can be a problem for wrists as well. Probably the same sort of thing Olofmeister is having. Both will probably have to end up having surgery to repair. It's quick and easy, so I'd recommend them do it sooner than later.

If Guardian misses this, then the top four will be: Fnatic, LG, Astralis, and either NiP or VP. I don't think EnvyUs will be top 4, nor Faze, nor Liquid, nor Tempo Storm, nor Mouz.
2016-04-04 15:39
i think envyus could be top 4 again. they just need to fix their ct. from what i saw at mlg, their t side was great and it looked like the good old envy. but their ct's were horrible and could barely hold a site

well, he use to lie about retiring just to get a better wage, he joined hltv and almost got banned for swearing people and several months later he did it again, but this time he blamed some hacking of his account. he's a liar, he's toxic as fug but he is also humble when he has an interest. like liking any ass for a few extra $$.

Guys, can anyone please explain exactly what wrist injury they're all talking about? What is the actual problem with the wrist? Anyone knows the details? All everyone is saying is "they have a wrist problem", can someone break down what type of a problem that is and is it some sort of a disease or its just due to playing too much...? Any proper info appreciated.
2016-04-04 17:27
a wrist problem cause pain isnt it enough? its the same that happened to pronax

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carpal_tunnel_synd.. Mostly caused due to playing too much with low sense. Also genetics and shit. Some people are more prone to experience CTS than others.

feels like excuses cause lets be real...they make it to the finals and he hit insane flicks...last game he was just outplayed, not aimwise but still outplayed. fallen was agressive when needed and defensive thats what outplayed navi and guardian too

guardian officialy announced it on twitter :'( ; twitter.com/guardiancsgo/status/71706241..
2016-04-04 21:24
I would personally love to see markeloff back playing for Na`Vi, even if its for just one tournament but highly doubt that FlipSide would allow him to play with Navi. So it will most likely be kibaken, since he's been close friends with the people at Na`Vi and was always the go-to man whenever they needed a stand-in from the early days of CS:GO.
2016-04-04 21:29
NO!

2016-04-05 01:02
