Natus Vincere CS:GO Player Boombl4 Reveals Why GuardiaN Was Underperforming In The Team

Published

21-year-old Russian CS:GO player Kirill Mikhailov, known as “Boombl4,” has been representing Natus Vincere for over one year. Before that, he was playing for Winstrike Team. In his career, he earned over $100.000 from the tournaments.

Boombl4 spoke in the conversation with hltv.org and unveiled the real reason why Ladislav “GuardiaN” Kovács was underperforming when we returned to the team.

In the interview, Boombl4 stated that GuardiaN forgot to speak Russian properly and didn’t even try to improve his language. Because of that, there was a language barrier for the roster. As Boombl4 stated in, the playstyle wasn’t really fit for GuardiaN, and he lost his confidence and miss every easy shots.

hltv.org asked:

“Why was GuardiaN unable to perform?”

Boombl4 responded:

“I thought, as did the team, that he had difficulties communicating. It was as if there was a language barrier, even though he had played with NAVI in the past. It could be the case that during his time playing for FaZe he forgot Russian. He didn’t work on it; he didn’t try to improve his Russian.

Even when we were bootcamping we’d discuss different topics in our free time, while he would prefer to talk to his Slovakian friends on the internet using his mother tongue. Also, our style didn’t really fit him, he was a lot more disciplined in-game and other teams adapted to him. This seemed to lead to a slight loss in confidence, he started missing easy shots, and later Sasha decided to return to AWPing.”

hltv.org asked:

“Did you participate in the choice of GuardiaN’s replacement?”

Boombl4 said:

“We had a shortlist of players, and we even trialed some of the academy players, but I was immediately up for signing Perfecto. I remembered him from a LAN I had attended with QBF, where we faced Atlants, whom he was playing for at the time.

He was really good, and later he had great showings with Syman. B1ad3 had a look at his demos and he liked him as well. electronic also liked him, so we all came together and decided that we would like to sign Perfecto.”
