flamie: "electronic is calling on some maps"
NAVI player Yegor "flamie" Vasiliev revealed that in some matches at ESL Pro League Season 13 Denis "electronic" Sharipov takes the role of in-game team leader instead of Kirill "Boombl4" Mikhailov. He shared this information in an interview before the match against MIBR, which his team has won. He, however, has missed the first map and the sixth player of the squad Valeriy "B1T" Vakhovskiy instead of him. He joined the team on Nuke and help his squad to crush the opponents.
During ESL Pro League Season 13, the NAVI team was repeatedly criticized for poor performance on the attack side. In particular, Janko "YNk" Paunovic, analyst for the tournament's English-language coverage studio, noted that the CIS team won only one round for attack on two maps against FURIA, which is a troubling sign given the long period of preparation of "born to win" for the current championship.
