Video: GuardiaN - MVP of IEM Sydney 2018

We put together a frag movie in remembrance of Ladislav "GuardiaN" Kovács’s play at IEM Sydney, where he was awarded the MVP medal after his team’s tournament-winning run in Australia.

Ladislav "GuardiaN" Kovács claimed the HLTV.org & betway MVP title after his FaZe beat teams like fnatic, Cloud9, TYLOO, and the red-hot Astralis nail-bitingiting final with two maps running into overtimes and the decider going all the way to thirty rounds. In that final, GuardiaN cemented his MVP candidacy over the likes of Nikola "NiKo" Kovač, Nicolai "device" Reedtz, and Emil "Magisk" Reif.

The Slovakian AWPer had a +1 rating in 16 out of the 17 maps played by his team in Australia, and boasted a 1.22 rating at the end of the event. He was also his team’s top performer in the match against fnatic and in the final against Astralis. Other than that, GuardiaN lead in KDD (+104), AWP kills per round (0.52), and opening kills (72).

Sit back and enjoy GuardiaN’s highlights from his first MVP award-winning tournament since joining FaZe, which have been put together by our very own Filip "filq" Szatkowski, featuring four action-packed minutes with frags from different matches during the AWPer’s run in Sydney.

You can find the rest of HLTV.org's videos by going to our Twitch channel.

what a joke
2018-05-13 19:04
why?
2018-05-13 19:40
Because Guardian and Kenny are better “AWPERS” than fallen?
2018-05-13 20:24
obviously, but why would fallen be 3rd and not 5-6

actually, when we look back in the past and we're able to remember many crazy flicks and awp clutches performed by FalleN, GuardiaN, kennyS... But I can't remember great awp plays from device.

Setup boosts your reaction time but still you need to practice like 10 hours everyday for years :D

you can't expect a fragmovie from an event lul also consistently hitting your shots is what matters not "sick kills".
2018-05-13 19:50
We all can expect a fragmovie by Inferno's Nifty against mousesports though. And that was just one map.
