Na`Vi ponder benching GuardiaN - Report

Natus Vincere are currently considering benching Ladislav "GuardiaN" Kovács, a report by 1pv.fr says.

According to the report, GuardiaN has not been playing with the team as of late, with Na`Vi Junior player Rodion "fear" Smyk taking his place in practice sessions at the moment. The Ukrainian youngster isn't, however, meant to join the team permanently, as the organization is taking a few days to reflect on the situation.

GuardiaN could be out of Na`Vi after just four months

Should Natus Vincere decide to remove the Slovakian veteran, it appears they would look for a new rifler to facilitate Aleksandr "s1mple" Kostyliev's return to the role of the AWPer, in which he thrived throughout 2018 and most of 2019 before passing it on to GuardiaN.

The 28-year-old has been a target of criticism since leaving FaZe to rejoin the Ukraine-based organization in September, with poor displays at StarSeries i-League Season 8 and EPICENTER 2019 seeing his average rating drop to 0.95 over the four-month period.

Yep, Ladi was 1.3+ rating 2.0 in Faze before he joined NaVi. That’s sad how simple destroyed another career. He probably was the one who made Ladi whiff on every AWP shot in every single game. Feelsbadman indeed
2020-01-16 18:28

Yeah sure, GuardiBOT played like a piece of ... Just because S1mple facepalming. Don't you think that 1st GuardiBOT played like a BOT and then S1mple facepalmed? Is it hard for Russian to understand an easy order of simple things?
2020-01-16 18:43
Once again, 3rdworlder: prove that im from the biggest shithole region which called CIS. Come on, kid. U have 24hrs for that. Second: guardian in faze was much better even under sthitty igleading of chokoko. But ugly skinny kids without brain like u (and most of them is s0mples fanboys, what a surprise lmao) just cant understand that their lovely toxic crybaby just shitting on every one inside of the game. Even on his teamm8s) GL fanbot, u proved once again how stupid u are)) Now gimme a proofs that im from russia.
2020-01-16 20:20
just watch some last matches of guardian in faze, then come back to that thread if u will still think that guardian was good in the end of faze carrer u re retarded

He was fragging a lot in faze early time. On the other hand he was bad in the end but who wasn't? Everyone was underperforming
2020-01-17 04:10
"On the other hand he was bad in the end but who wasn't?" NiKo wasn't and the reason why they were soo garbage is bcz 4/5 of them sucked, what is that bullshit logic "He was shit but soo was everyone else?" like what?
2020-01-17 06:19
NiKo dropppped wayyy offf. He dragged the team for so long refusing to get an actual igl cause he thought he was a god caller and player and started tanking in both departments.
2020-01-17 09:27
lmao mad poorlandia here I watched some of his last games in faze and i can say that he was better before he rejoined to navi and showe terrible perfomence under s0mple's pressure. Anything else u stupid fuck?
2020-01-17 11:21
and btw, everyone was bad in faze in their last games with guardian and neo. But nt, toilet cleaner)
2020-01-17 11:22
true, but guardian is still playing like dogshit he cant hit easy shots dude
2020-01-17 15:56
am i saying that he's good or fine or normal in navi or what? I know that rn he's dogshit player which cant hit easiest shots. Its not bcs he lost all his skill after faze, its just bcs of the big pressure from teamm8s and community (especially from CIS). And its also fault of blade. I mean who's the fuck gonna change playstyle of awper from agressive to veeeeeeery passive and made him kinda a support player? Literally stupid. Guardian never played like this. In old navi roster game was builded around him and how he wanted to play. Same story with faze.

2020-01-16 18:06
Probably he is just Stand In. Not that much teams want to make any roster changes before the major, especially ForZe or VP.
2020-01-16 18:07
4 months is decent time tho, not enough to polish everything but i’d do it rather than have guardian or stand-in next few months
2020-01-16 18:20
Yeah, but if they pick sexpower (for example) ForZe have only 2 weeks to find a player they want (it's not an easiest task) untill the roster lock before the major. They can make a move of buying sexpower and give GuardiaN to ForZe on loan or something like that (they did the same when they brought BoombI4 and gave Edward to winstrike)
2020-01-16 18:25
I don't think that xse or qikert will join Navi. For sure not before the major

Sad for him, he's been consistenly good or amazing throughout his career, however never been able to win a major. Would suck for him to quit like this... lets hope he can bounce back but honestly I'm not expecting much.

2020-01-16 18:08
It's not only about stats and skills , it's also about chemistry with certain group of people and language. Since they speak only russian in teamspeak , their choices are very limited because you don't see top tier players that speak russian very often... So it's harder for them to find good player to remplace Guardian.
2020-01-17 08:50
They should give him more time i guess, but if they really feel it, it needs to be done now. I am curious who will they bring in.
2020-01-16 18:07
If they are looking for AWP they can get Gospodarov from NaVi junior for free, if they have money, they can buyout Shiro or Xsepower, if they have tons of money, they can even buyout Jame
2020-01-16 18:10
Jame and s1mple and electronic, very nice
2020-01-16 18:21
I was dreaming about it before Guarding sign
2020-01-16 18:23
Tbh so many good awpera that can help navi, sh1ro, xsepower, jame etc But idk if its best for s1mple to play main awp or rifle hard call i think
2020-01-16 18:26
Inthink s1mple on AWP is always good... sometimes he relies too much on it so I understand what you say my friend
2020-01-17 13:59
yee, s1mple is just god with any weapon thats why im wondering if he needs to be main awp;)

sdy or jR
2020-01-16 18:49
why JR? he's nothing special and he's already 26, they must think for perspective
2020-01-17 10:24
jR is good AWPer, he did great in Vega. He is professional and he knows how to play under pressure and on Majors / Big Events. jR is also an amazing IGL, I think he is much better IGL than Boobla.
2020-01-17 10:24
in this case they must replace both boombla and Guardian
2020-01-17 10:29
And I hope flamie will be replaced also. In my opinion the best move for Na`Vi would be: -GuardiBOT +Jame -Boobla +jR -flamie +somedieyoung
2020-01-17 10:32
not gonna happen soon I guess
2020-01-17 10:32
plus, not sure if they have money for jame and he won't leave his team even tho they are pretty shit
2020-01-17 10:33
Jame will leave his trash team soon. They are #17 (VP). Na`Vi are #8 and have all potential to change their system / roster and be top1-3 again.
2020-01-17 10:35
Would like to see that.

s1mple does it again. But deserved GuardiaN needs to retire.
2020-01-16 18:31
Yeah, it's all S1mple's fault, that this fat guy plays like shit... Sure... :)
2020-01-16 18:40
I'm not blaming only s1mple but imo he should be like a "LeBron James type of guy" he knows he is the best but he tries to have co-stars comfortable with him like he does with A.D, people reported in the past that s1mple toxic behavior makes GuardiaN tilt in some games, s1mple should work to be a star-leader motivating his teammates to be co-stars and trust them fully.
2020-01-16 18:46
And you should just stop blaming S1mple in everything. GuardiaN was just too bad. I think his current level of play is lower than tier3.

Eh, I don't think signing a rifler would give NaVi such a boost as signing an AWPer. The quality of the best CIS AWPers is higher than of the riflers available. The only decent hybrid addition would be Buster, since he is a stable, smart player who can go for double AWP if needed. But don't think he is available. The obvious options are Xsepower and Shiro, keeping S1mple on the rifle mainly. Xsepower would be my pick, since Shiro might not be that experienced, but he is more for the future. Sdy ok, but mir? C'mon people, mir is not the level NaVi needs.

+1 great analysis that can work
2020-01-16 18:50

I watched it, no worries and yes, forZe is doing pretty good to make any changes, obviously even dropping their most shining star to somebody else. With the financial backing of Spartak and LUKOIL theoretically it is not possible to get Xsepower. But you never know what can happen with your head when the most prominent team of the region comes knocking to your door. It was told in the past that few Avangar members were appoached by NaVi and they didn't change boat. Some experts said it was a mistake on their part, in terms of career. So who knows what Xsepower would do if he would get the offer?

The major is so far away that waiting until then would be ridiculous.. They might have waited if it was in february though...
2020-01-16 22:15
Yeah i'm very glad they didn't wait, hovewer they could have told themselves, let's wait until major maybe he can turn it around, if we'll have a bad result then we can kick him. It's an easy trap to fall in to. I'm very glad they aren't doing that :)

Well they are absolutely making the right move putting SImple back on the AWP. I swear so many stupid ass organizations have taken the weapon out of that mans hands. What dedi awper other then Zywoo is going to go +1000 on that weapon? Na'vi has a player that can do things no one else can. Making him a rifler is such a colossal waste of everyone's time.

The other thing Na'vi still gets cute on is those hero AK buys. Simple dropping an AK for fucking boom boom. Na'vi needs to learn about high percentage plays. Not managing everyone's ego. Not when you have the best player in the world.

I'm sad to hear this. Guardian is having a bit of rough time. Not sure why? Would be tragic if he retires without winning a Major. One of the greatest AWPer ever touched the game. Should've won one in Boston. Maybe he should leave FaZe sooner after karrigan left. Stuck in that rotting roster is a waste of time.
2020-01-16 22:40
Dead team with no clue and no IGL feel so bad for this team, so much talent yet can't do shit all. Hopefully s1mple will go back to awping that's where he had his most impact, as a rifler even electronic is better than him.

A literal obese neckbeard. Notice how skill decreased w/ size? Sausage fingers and fatty buildup in the brain.

Great move for navi tbh, he's a great player but it didn't work out.
2020-01-17 01:39
Shiro incoming?

GuardiaN is a great player he was so consistant before 2019, idk what happened to him during 2019 but im sure he will recover and i hope i dont see him retire anytime soon
2020-01-17 02:02
As a veteran, what's your value if you cant even solve the mental issue of yourself? How can you support ur teammates in such case?
2020-01-17 02:06
Guardian's time is over
2020-01-17 02:10

Would be nice to see Jame in Navi
2020-01-17 02:24
I dunno why but GuardiaN always seemed bit of overrated to me. He was a good defensive awper, but nothing more than that and the fact that he is not handicapped with rifles like some other awpers. I think they should give him more chances. He just returned to NaVi from Faze it's kinda shit to just drop him off after few months. Also Boombl4 is such a big garbage. I dunno what was the hype of him joining, but I don't see NaVi playing better because of him. And he often sucks so much. There are far better players than him.

You are not right. Boombla is IGL so he can have poor rating.
2020-01-17 03:54
Not a very good IGL. Dude literally just picked up the role. Went from a tier 2-3 team at best to in game leading in a top team very fast. I personally think he does well as a player even in his position but he has much to learn in actually developing this team. He doesn't have very good tactics and imo Guardian was sandwiched between all the stars of this team and was playing a bitch role. As he would often get flash assists and wait around parts of the map for half the round. Which tells me Boombla didn't know how to effectively use him and the coach didn't do much to improve that either. Not to say that is solely the reason Guardian has been sucking but it definitely plays a factor. That and Im sure Guardian is extremely stressed out knowing hes been on the chopping block and was already in a slump to begin with. Especially with the idea he has 2 majors left before he is pretty much forced to leave cause he wants to have kids. And he knows if Navi doesn't work then hes probably sol.

Guardian's problem is that he is acting like IGL (having bad rating), while not being actual IGL. Also he occupied AWP role with no real impact.
2020-01-17 09:53
Should add buster or qikert from VP, two standout riflers from cis

I hope they get someone that's actually good, and not a promise. Otherwise s1mple will have to leave the team. He's just wasting his prime there. It won't last forever. And honestly, I'd love to see s1mple back in liquid. Even Elige said he would like to play with him again one day, since they don't have issues with each other anymore.

Finally they kick this LadislaBOT from NaVi. Lazy guy who lost all his skill. + toxic af
2020-01-17 03:24
Guardian isn't toxic. He's probably one of the least toxic players in the game. Very level headed and honestly only tilts when he plays with S1mple. The man who built his whole career on being toxic. Funny how that works.
2020-01-17 09:49
Well then...

Why people want Jame/xsepower/sh1ro to join NaVi? Jame is basically a statpadder and baiter. xsepower/sh1ro have teams built around them and they will suck in other team.
2020-01-17 09:44
basically true, but mainly the fact that NaVi needs other roles more. They have arguably the most skilled AWPer in the game, he should be at his best!
