Ladislav "GuardiaN" Kovács says that he is taking a break from professional CS:GO until the next Major on his Twitch stream.
GuardiaN was recently benched on Na'Vi to make way for the 20-year-old Russian Ilya "Perfecto" Zalutskiy after having abysmal performances towards the end of 2019. GuardiaN is considered one of the best AWPers to play CS:GO, and it caught fans by surprise when he started underperforming in 2019, especially since he had Denis "electronic" Sharipov and Aleksandr "s1mple" Kostyliev on his team. GuardiaN ended 2019 with a .94 HLTV ranking and a 60.1 ADR, which is abysmal for a player of his caliber.
In the Twitch clip, he says, "I will take a break until the next Major, and then after the Major, I will see." Based on his response, it would appear that after the Major, he will consider returning, not a for sure, "I'm coming back." GuradiaN's retirement would be coupled with the retirement of another Major winner in 2020, Edouard "SmithZz" Dubourdeaux.
GuardiaN said that during his break period, he would be streaming CS:GO, which over time, may provide us some more insight into his future career plans to play competitively. The next Major that GuardiaN references will be on May 16 - 24.
