Video: GuardiaN - MVP of ELEAGUE Invitational

HLTV.org's own Filip "filq" Szatkowski made a fragmovie to commemorate Ladislav "GuardiaN" Kovács's play at the ELEAGUE Invitational, where the Slovakian AWPer was named HLTV & betway's MVP of the tournament.

GuardiaN beat out teammates Olof "olofmeister" Kajbjer and Håvard "rain" Nygaard, as well as Cloud9's Fabien "kioShiMa" Fiey in the race for the MVP at the ELEAGUE Invitational in Atlanta, making it the eighth medal of his career.

FaZe beat Cloud9 in the final, where GuardiaN had a stunning performance on the decider map with +25 KDD and a 2.11 rating. As far as his tournament-wide numbers go, the Slovakian AWPer led the KDD rankings (+30), AWP kills per round (0.48), and top AWP kills (132), and was tied for first in the 1vsXs won category, with four clutches.

The video opens with a beautiful 1vs4 clutch on Train with the AWP to seal an ace, and is followed by several other multi-kill rounds GuardiaN had during the length of the tournament in America against the other three teams in attendance at the four-team event: Cloud9, BIG, and Complexity.

If you think f0rest hasn't dropped off in skill level you're quite wrong.
2019-02-05 21:05
Dropped off in total skill does not equal washed up. He's stil an astounding player.

not even close to top 20 though, you may as well call everyone in the pro scene astounding too, it means nothing
2019-02-05 21:29
Literally we were told he was around the Top 30 point. He's still an a great pro player, by the pro player standards.

I think it’s because he had so many nice highlighs, and guardian is pretty popular player, so they make a little more of it. Had it been like rush mvp, they probably wouldn’t make one
