Buster played only 11 matches on FACEIT during half a year of inactivity in VP


Cloud9's new player Timur "buster" Tulepov has very few matches registered on FACEIT during his time spend on the bench in Virtus.pro. The information is available on his profile page on the platform.

From May 15 to the end of 2022, buster seemingly didn't practice on FACEIT, which is the main platform for pros to play and train. He had 11 matches and won 3 of them. He could, of course, use another account, but it is prohibited by the rules of the service and seems unlikely.

Buster's transfer to Cloud9 caused a lot of criticism, even when it was just a rumor. Analysts point at stats that speak in favor of their former player Timofey "interz" Yakushin. For example, his HLTV rating at "big events" in 2022 was 1.01, while buster had 0.94. Commentator Mohan "launders" Govindasamy blamed team leaders for "scapegoating interz". In his opinion, he was one of the best supports last season.

Interestingly enough, buster faced interz on FACEIT in one of these 11 matches. Timur's team lost 8:16. The Kazakhstani player ended up with a KDA of 11-21-5, while interz had a score of 20-13-3.

Buster will debut for Cloud9 at IEM Katowice 2023. The event is scheduled to start on January 31 in Poland. Interz's next destination is so far unknown. OG's degster promised to speak with the former C9 player on stream in a few days. Maybe this way we will learn more about Yakushin's future plans.
