Two years after playing with FaZe Clan lineup alongside Nikola “NiKo” Kovac and his teammates, the Slovak legend Ladislav “GuardiaN” Kovacs is making his return to his original team, after Natus Vincere (Na’Vi) officially unveiled the new change
Widely considered as one of the best Counter-Strike: Global Offensive snipers, “GuardiaN” is definitely an important addition to any team that he plays for, and he proved that by helping FaZe win several important tournaments like ESL One New York 2017, ELEAGUE CS: GO Premier and ECS S4, before the team lost its touch after once battling Astralis for the number one spot in the world.
However, it seems that GuardiaN still has a place for his original team Na’Vi in heart, with the organization announcing the return of the player to fill the spot left by legendary teammate Danylo “Zeus” Teslenko, who announced his retirement last week.
It wasn't a big secret, but it will be great return. Welcome back, @guardiancsgo! ????

Ladislav’s return to the squad will give Oleksandr “s1mple” Kostyliev more freedom to play as he has held the AWP position since his absence, while Kirill “Boombl4” Mikhailov will take over captain duties from Zeus using his experience from his former team. Winstrike.
Other changes include the appointment of Andriy “B1ad3” Gorodenskyi as the new coach of Na’Vi’s CS: GO squad, and a new task for “s1mple” in keeping the team’s discipline and maintain the atmosphere, which is usually the responsibility of the team manager.
The new changes will take effect when “GuardiaN” plays in his black and white team jersey again at DreamHack Masters Malmo, which starts on October 1. We are waiting to see the results of the improved squad, hoping for Na’Vi’s comeback to the highest level again.
