GuardiaN claims IEM Sydney MVP award
Ladislav "GuardiaN" Kovács is the winner of the Most Valuable Player (MVP) award of IEM Sydney 2018 by HLTV.org and betway.
With his grand final performance, Ladislav "GuardiaN" Kovács beat teammate Nikola "NiKo" Kovač and Astralis member Emil "Magisk" Reif to the prize. Nicolai "device" Reedtz and Peter "dupreeh" Rasmussen had also been strong contenders for the award, but fell off after indifferent performances in the title decider.
The Slovakian veteran averaged a 1.22 rating in Sydney and ended all but one of the 17 maps that he played with +1 ratings. Besides topping the scoreboard against Astralis, he was FaZe's top performer in the quarter-final match against fnatic.
