After the conclusion of the PGL Antwerp Major 2022, where VP's roster placed 12th-14th, the organization decided to bench and transfer list both buster and YEKINDAR.

When our club faced the need for substitutions, we immediately determined for ourselves that we would first of all look for promising young players who are ready to develop and progress together with the team. n0rb3r7 and fame have been around for a long time and deserve to perform on the tier-one scene.
