Official: Boombl4 enters free agency

Esports athlete Kirill "Boombl4" Mikhailov has officially announced via Twitter that his contract with NAVI has expired and that he is now a free agent.

Boombl4 played for NAVI from May 2019 to May 2021. Over the course of two years, he won many big events, the most prestigious of which was PGL Major Stockholm 2021.

Mikhailov was removed from Natus Vincere's starting five due to high reputational risks for the club. As it turned out later, these risks had to do with the public behavior of his wife, whom he later divorced.

After being put on the NAVI bench, the Russian got into music, streamed and participated in exhibition tournaments. He has repeatedly said that he wants to return to tier-1 competition.

Earlier, it was revealed that the lineup version featuring Boombl4, Egor "flamie" Vasilyev, Andrey "Jerry" Mekhryakov, Eugene "Aunkere" Karyat and Denis "deko" Zhukov, which was supposed to be signed by organization BetBoom, was foiled. However, Jerry said that Mikhailov would nevertheless play for BetBoom, but in a different roster version.
