Gen.G has put the finishing touches on its inaugural Counter-Strike: Global Offensive roster by signing former Tyloo player Hansel "BnTeT" Ferdinand.
The Korean organization first made waves in North American CS:GO earlier this month by acquiring the core of Cloud9's lineup consisting of Timothy "autimatic" Ta, Kennith "koosta" Suen, and Damian "daps" Steele and their assistant coach Chris "Elmapuddy" Tebbit who has assumed the role of head coach. A few days later, Gen.G announced they had acquired Sam "s0m" Oh who had formerly been playing for Team Envy.
BnTeT had remained with his former team Tyloo, a Chinese organization, since March 2017, and has widely been considered to be one of the best players in the Asia region. BnTeT helped lead Tyloo to a number of impressive results in recent months, including a first place finish at eXTREMESLAND CS:GO Asian 2019 over Chinese rivals ViCi Gaming and a 2-0 victory over MIBR at the CS:GO Asia Championships.
The Indonesian star will first be joining up with the newly formed Gen.G squad in the United States after competing in the Asia qualifier for the IEM World Championships in Katowice in early January.
Gen.G's CS:GO roster is as follows:
- Timothy "autimatic" Ta
- Kennith "koosta" Suen
- Damian "daps" Steele
- Sam "s0m" Oh
- Hansel "BnTeT" Ferdinand
- Chris "Elmapuddy" Tebbit (Coach)
