Ladislav “GuardiaN” Kovács is a 29-year-old Slovakian CS:GO player who had played for teams like, Natus Vincere, FaZe Clan, and more. Right now, he is on the bench of Natus Vincere.

GuardiaN released a new article on Dexerto and revealed his thoughts about the moments of his career. Also, he explained why he thinks he is ready to return back to competitive play.

In the post, GuardiaN mentioned that he won’t expect to come back and became the most consistent fragger in the roster, but he can fill the void and became one of the best AWP players in the game again.

Furthermore, he pointed out the difference in playing the Faceit Pro League during his free time at the bench of NaVi and stated that he has been playing CS:GO every day for six months. Because of this hard grind, GuardiaN thinks that he can get back into his old form.

Here is what GuardiaN said:

“I’m ready to return to competing in CS:GO at the highest level. People might say that I’m old, but I think that age is just a number in CS. When I stood in for Dignitas during Flashpoint, there were glimpses of my old self, I felt it. But, as you’d guess, consistency was lacking. While I believe that even then, I could have slotted into a top-tier roster and still go toe-to-toe with the very best, I also think that the timing wasn’t right.

Fast-forward some months, and 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. 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. If my months grinding FPL have taught me one thing, it’s that adapting your style to make yourself more unpredictable (i.e., aggressively peeking an unexpected angle) will generally work in my favor.”

He continued:

“In my opinion, playing FPL is much harder than against a team. Of course, in FPL, there’s nothing to lose, so players are willing to experiment and make plays they typically wouldn’t in a more structured, team-based setting. As an AWPer, this is often very difficult to play against. Especially with my approach — which is largely based on anticipating what my opposite number will do, and then put myself in a favorable position to do as much damage as possible.

I’ve been playing CS:GO every day for the past six months, and individually speaking, I’m there. As I said, I feel like I’m getting back in my stride (comparable to my peak with FaZe). So for now, I’m just waiting for the right opportunity to arise which will allow me to be the right asset for my team.”
