BnTeT Returns To TYLOO

Hansel "BnTeT" Ferdinand has announced on Tuesday, February 1, that he is returning to his old team ahead of IEM Katowice.

Hansel “BnTeT” Ferdinand has announced on Tuesday, February 1, that he is returning to his old team ahead of IEM Katowice. The 26-year-old will re-join TYLOO, a team he left in December 2019, to pursue a career in North America and Europe.

BnTeT Re-Joins TYLOO

After over two years away, BnTeT has announced his return to the Asian team, TYLOO. He was a part of TYLOO between March 2017 and December 2019, leading the team to the top of the Chinese CS:GO scene.

During his time at TYLOO, BnTeT has helped the Asian squad reach their peak in the global rankings. The team broke into the top-10 for a brief period in August 2018 and ended the year inside the top-20.

Even though TYLOO has not achieved much international success, the Chinese squad has left its mark. TYLOO placed second in ROG Masters 2017 and made semi-finals at Intel Extreme Masters XIII – Sydney and the CS:GO Asia Championships 2019.

Although the team achieved plenty between 2017-2019, it was all mostly thanks to BnTet, who emerged as the best player from the region. During his two-year tenure with TYLOO, BnTeT has averaged a 1.20 rating, with a 63.8% map win rate.

His talent did not go unnoticed and the Indonesian CS:GO superstar got spotted by Gen.G, who was building a new roster. IN December 2019, the North American esports organization signed BnTeT, who left his home team and traveled overseas ahead of the 2020 season.

An Unsuccessful Journey

Gen.G acquired BnTeT as the fifth and final member of its inaugural CS:GO roster. At his new team, the Indonesian player teamed up with Timothy “autimatic” Ta, Damian “daps” Steele, Kenneth “koosta” Suen, and Sam “s0m” Oh.

Although the team had potential, Gen.G did not live up to the hype. BnTeT would spend over a year with the North American side but could not achieve any noteworthy results.

Gen.G’s only two notable tournament runs came early into 2020, when they won DreamHack Open Anaheim 2020 and ESL One: Road to Rio – North America. But unfortunately, that was where Gen.G peaked.

A streak of iffy performances and lack of success led daps to step down from the active roster and leave the team in September. In October, s0m announced he is retiring from CS:GO after getting acquired by NRG Esports’s Valorant team.

Since s0m’s departure, Gen.G appeared in only one more tournament – Flashpoint Season 2, with two stand-ins. But the team again underperformed and placed ninth-10th.

The lack of success and underwhelming performances throughout the year eventually led Gen.G to pull the plug on its CS:GO division. Still contracted with the team, BnTeT remained with Gen.G until January 24, 2021, when he left to join EXTREMUM.

BnTeT remained with EXTREMUM until October 2021, but success was again hard to come by for the 26-year-old. Similar to Gen.G, EXTREMUM had potential, but the Russian esports organization struggled to achieve much in the scene and eventually cut ties with its roster.


After a two-year trip around the world, which saw him compete in the NA and European CS:GO esports scene, BnTeT will now return to the team that he helped put on the world map. By joining TYLOO, BnTeT will also return to pro play for the first time since October 2021, when he stepped down from EXTREMUM’s active lineup.

“It’s time to get back to work again! feels good to be back,” said BnTeT.

“I am going be the IGL for the team, and I will do my very best! Cheers, everyone.”

BnTeT will make his second debut for TYLOO at the IEM Katowice Play-In, on Tuesday, February 15.
