GuardiaN: "I'm ready to return"

After working on his individual form, the Slovakian AWPer announced his plans to return to competition, adding that he has "unfinished business in Counter-Strike".

Ladislav "⁠GuardiaN⁠" Kovács is one of the most decorated players in CS:GO, having eight MVP medals and six Top 20 placings to his name. The 29-year-old found success with Natus Vincere in 2013-2017, as well as FaZe in 2017-2019, lifting 17 notable LAN trophies in the process - but the Major one is still eluding him.

His return to Natus Vincere at the end of 2019 was short-lived, as the sniper's poor individual form saw him replaced by Ilya "⁠Perfecto⁠" Zalutskiy in just four months. After spending almost a quarter of the year on the sidelines, GuardiaN announced in a column for Dexerto that he is "ready to return to competing in CS:GO at the highest level".

GuardiaN is looking for a team to finally lift a Major trophy with

GuardiaN shared that he has been working on his individual game "non-stop", admitting that it was mostly a psychological battle, with the freedom provided by FPL helping him become comfortable with the AWP again. Talking about his current form, he compares it to the "ELEAGUE Boston Major - IEM Katowice 2018 era", two top-tier events GuardiaN finished with a 1.24 and 1.18 rating, respectively.

"After watching the ‘online era’ of Counter-Strike unfold before me, I’m seeing mistakes being made at the highest level. Mistakes that I know I wouldn’t make", GuardiaN wrote. "Saying that, I’m not expecting to come back and be the most consistent fragger on a team. But with the right team, I know that I can fill the void as a top-tier AWPer and grind to become one of the best snipers in CS:GO again."

Playing Counter-Strike every day for the last six months has got GuardiaN to a level "comparable to my peak with FaZe", according to him. The veteran AWPer says he will not jump at the first chance to play again as he is "waiting for the right opportunity to arise."

The Slovakian also addressed his "Major curse" — coming up short in three different grand finals —, and concluded by saying he isn't coming back just to "earn a paycheck", but to deal with his unfinished business. "I'm hungrier than ever; and I feel like with the right team, I can finally claim the elusive Major trophy and it will no longer be a case of 'the one that got away'".

It is certainly an interesting idea but I'm thinking more in terms of if they were ever serious about giving Bymas time as 6th man to finish school. Don't know about benching ChrisJ unless it is a temporary thing. His stats are poor but I suspect he is effectively unbenchable in the context of the team. My theory is that benching ChrisJ would be quickly followed by benching Karrigan and then approximately three years of running round like headless chickens looking for a new IGL.

"Faze" "NaVi" Those are two of the top 10 teams in the world bro. If he can't prove himself in them, why would other teams risk a spot to pick him up again? You think Astralis is waiting to sign him ye?

lmao, s1mple has had two appearances in a major final and he shat the bed in both of them. GuardiaN has had three appearances and he was the best rated player in his team for two of them. GuardiaN has had a legacy that included being the best AWPer in the world at one point. He definitely deserves a major, and I argue that he deserves one more than s1mple.

Wow, you are very well informed about the situation he is in, and you are absolutely right about him. Or maybe not... Because GuardiaN did exactly what you are saying... He invested his money and also started his own business.
2020-09-09 22:18
4 replies
What businesses does Guardian own and what did he invest in? What are his finances like? I would genuinely like to know. Or atleast, why is he actually trying to return to a pro gaming scene when he is well off and doesnt need money. Is it his love for competitive CS, even though he was known to rarely practice outside of matches cuz he was a lazy bum.
2020-09-09 22:35
3 replies
He owns few properties and launched the store with a gaming gear - GetGear. With all that money he earned throughout his career, he can live a luxurious life without any problems here in Slovakia. The average wage of people in normal jobs is nowhere near to what players of his status are earning. Why does he want to come back? You can read what he has to say about it: dexerto.com/csgo/guardian-column-my-majo.. We all know about his problems with motivation etc. when things in a team are not alright. Nowadays he is playing FPL basically every day and in a stable team, he is practising just like any other player.
2020-09-10 00:05
2 replies
Just cuz he owns few properties doesn't mean he's automatically doing well. And I've never heard of GetGear, I looked at his site and I'd be interested to know how much he actually makes from it and how many people buy Guardian merch. Especially since he faded into obscurity. Dude any post about a player trying to make a comeback into the scene is always something generic about how they are more motivated than ever, that they have something to prove to the world that they can reach the top, blah blah blah. I hope it's true, I personally don't buy it but lets see. He can prove me wrong by bringing back the old Guardian flicks.
2020-09-10 00:10
1 reply
Well yeah, it's your opinion, and I will respect it. The thing is you automatically assumed that he is broke and needs money. But again I can assure you, that with all his earnings, sponsorships and investments he is doing more than well here in Slovakia. He is still popular among SK/CZ or Hungarian fans and GetGear were intended to them. But shipping was expanded to more countries because of high demand from other countries fans. We will see what his performances will be.
