Alexander s1mple Kostylev appreciated the skills of Kirill Boombl4 Mikhailov in CS: GO and explained what role the newcomer plays in Natus Vincere. In an interview with HLTV.org, he also told how the team chose a replacement for John Edward Sukharev.
“We discussed whether we should change the line-up, because we had been playing together for a very long time. As a result, the team agreed on the opinion that we need more good shooters, but this decision was very difficult. We asked B1ad3 to help us with the choice of a player – he asked who exactly we needed, and started watching replays of possible candidates. After that, he proposed Boombl4.
He appreciated the huge number of demons Bumych and compared his position with those held by Edward. B1ad3 also looked at other players – he gave us a choice of three. We decided to take Bumych because he was already a leader and talked a lot. His role in CS: GO was also important: he usually goes to the first frag, but he can also go in the back and play separately from the team.
The first thing I noted in the style of Boombl4 is that it is very active and constantly helps to create space for us wherever we go. He speaks a lot, plays a lot, always tries to become better. During training, he had only one problem: when we get an advantage, he is too eager to attack – but it will pass with experience. I think that in a month or two Boombl4 will start playing at times better, as was the case with electronic. ”
Boombl4 joined Natus Vincere on May 29. In part, he replaced Edward, who joined the Winstrike Team on loan.
