Gen.G Esports who stepped into the world of competitive CS:GO just a week back, have already started making some changes in its roster. According to reports by dbltap.com, Gen.G Esports might be looking to sign Hansel “BnTeT” Ferdinan, one of the best players from Asia, who has been playing with TYLOO since March 2017.
According to sources, BnTeT’s contract with TYLOO is about to expire at the end of this year, an offer has been made to the Indonesian rifler, but it is still unclear whether he would go ahead with it or not.
The organization which operates in the North American region had initially acquired the trio of Timothy “autimatic” Ta, Damian “daps” Steele, and Kenneth “koosta” Suen from Cloud9 along with their assistant coach, Chris “Elmapuddy” Tebbit. Just three days after that the team went on to sign Sam “s0m” Oh from Team Envy.
With the roster still lacking a player to complete their lineup, Gen.G went on to sign Hunter “SicK” Mims as a stand-in for IEM World Championship: North American Open Qualifiers.
As the organization still lacks a permanent fifth, the speculations of BnTeT joining their ranks seem to be true. The rifler has been the backbone for TYLOO for almost three years now, he has helped the team make its way to three back-to-back CS:GO Majors, and currently holds an overall rating of 1.19 with an impact rating of 1.20. His rifling abilities are on par with most of the riflers within the top ten, and he can very well hold his own in 1v1 matchups as well.
Note: All ratings have been taken from HLTV.
It will be really great to see an Asian player break out of the region and play for Gen.G Esports, but at the same time, it will be a massive blow to the region, as the shift will result in a massive drop in TYLOO’s firepower. Let’s see if the speculations turn out to be true and if BnTeT actually goes ahead with the offer or not.
