The Story of Boombl4. First success
Kirill did not succeed immediately. His eSports’ career began in 2016 with the Elements Pro Gaming team, where he successfully improved his skills and showed a quality game.
According to Kirill himself he was always interested in Counter-Strike, but he had no idea about the eSports. However, when he saw the broadcast of eSports matches with players on the stage, he admitted to himself «I can play no worse than them". After that, he began to train hard and go deeply into eSports.
After a few months, he decided to join the Quantum Bellator Fire team. Frankly said at first the team’s performance did not sparkle with success. However, in October 2017, QBF becomes a runner-up of the CIS-qualification ELEAGUE Boston Major, due to Bumych by large. They were able to show a high-quality game, which surprised the audience, opponents and bookmakers. Though initially the QBF team was considered an outsider.
The real popularity came to Kirill Mikhailov after his game with the Winstrike team, which he joined in 2018. Bumych was confident on the role of the team captain, saving his team with his tactical decisions many times. Later he said about those events: “It was fun to try to be a captain. I know a lot of the game.”
Of course at that time it was his debut in the role of captain, but he diligently honed his skills and delved into the essence of the team game. The teammates highly appreciated Kirill’s leadership qualities and his charisma. Kirill was able to create a special atmosphere within the team, due to which the Winstrike players were able to reach their potential.
