The captain of the Natus Vincere CS: GO roster Kirill Boombl4 Mikhailov shared his opinion about Ilya Perfecto Zalutsky. In an interview with Maria Marple Ermolina, he said that he was glad that Zalutsky had joined the team, and noted the Russian’s hard work.
“I am very glad that Perfecto joined the team. It seems to me that for the first time I spoke about him at all together with Denis electronic. I remember him from the moment when I was at the tournament with QBF in St. Petersburg. I liked him as an individual player, as a person – a pleasant person to communicate, very simple, without any drawbacks that you can immediately see in some people. We decided that we needed a shooter – he is perfect for this role. There were negotiations, there was a choice between the players, but they agreed on Ilya.
He is very hard working. He even moved to Kiev – he works, he doesn’t get free, one might say. He is a hardworking guy, and everyone is trying to openly help him, that is, as with me. Everyone gives him advice. He works and he is great. “
Boombl4 also talked about why the team failed to play with Ladislav GuardiaN Kovacs. He believes that the main problem was in the communication between the members of the composition.
“I think the main problem was communication. I don’t know what the level of GuardiaN was in Russian before. Some guys played with him and said that then he knew the language better. When we played, there was a feeling that he was slowly taking in our information. Well, in principle, his individual result, it seems to me, depended on how we played as a team. The playstyle simply did not fit – it was more passive. Sometimes there were moments when he saved AWP and gave it to Sasha s1mple. I felt insecure at some point from him. “
GuardiaN left the main roster of Natus Vincere on January 24, 2020. In March, the player temporarily joined Team Dignitas, but is still listed as a substitute for the CIS club. His place in the team was taken by Perfecto. Together with Zalutsky, NAVI climbed to the first line of the HLTV rating in three months
