GuardiaN: "NiKo can still be better, I think that one day he will break 50 frags"

The last match of the second day of the ECS Season 4 Finals saw FaZe pick up a dominant win over Cloud9. In a post-match chat featuring a guest interviewer, Ladislav "GuardiaN" Kovács talked about the SK rivalry and teams to look out for in 2018.

In Cancun, Mexico, FaZe once again took a victory over Tarik "tarik" Celik and co., currently holding a 6-0 map record over the North American side. That win earned FaZe a place in the semi-final tomorrow, where they will once again face fnatic, who they defeated in the ESL Pro League Season 6 Finals playoffs.

Following FaZe's win, HLTV.org's last-minute stand-in talked to Ladislav "GuardiaN" Kovács about SK not being present at ECS, Robert "RobbaN" Dahlström not being at this event and Nikola "NiKo" Kovač's 40-kill game.

40 frags vs Liquid? Not a single NA team has won a CSGO Major. Call me when he can 40 bomb a tier 1 team...
2017-12-17 17:08
So your succes is based on winning majors? Thats the most retarded thing Ive read today. Until Eleague Astralis/TSM had never won a major so they were a shit tier team even tho they were a consistent top 5 team in the world?

Don't wanna ruin your hopes and dreams but getting 50 frags on silvers is pretty easy no matter the year.
2017-12-26 16:30
If you consider that I was actually silver, not smurf, it was quite hard. I'm not saying MM was harder in 2015, I'm just saying I was silver in 2015. Who the fuck are you to say it wasn't hard? If you were never silver, you've got no place to talk.

Actually when i first played this game i was placed at silver 3 and it took me little over a week to get to master guardian soo...
2017-12-28 14:21
So you still have no place to talk, I'd been silver since 2014 and I was till the major VAC wave which let me go up into GN ranks and then MG ranks. If it takes you a bit over a week to get to MG from Silver 3, you're clearly not meant to be silver.

If one player is getting 50 frags the rest of the team is underperforming in a big way. In a perfect game everybody should get almost the same number of frags with a slight overweight to entryfraggers on CT.

50 frags ... divided over 16 rounds that a minimum of 3 frags every round! + one round where he aces! can you be more dumb when making those comments? I understand why Guardian was kicked
2017-12-20 21:47
they dont have to win 16:0 if they win 16:14 they have 30 rounds so 1.6 frags per round
