Asian teams have never quite risen to the top of Counter-Strike but that hasn’t stopped Hansel ‘BnTeT’ Ferdinand from being considered as one of the best in the world.
BnTeT first shocked the scene with TYLOO in 2017, as the Chinese side stunned a number of teams throughout the year, with the relatively unknown Indonesian player dominating some of the best in the world.
The player consistently put up solid performances and impressive ratings, even when his team completely bombed out of tournaments without even winning a map. This caused many to take notice of him, and he quickly became a fan favorite.

However, the team failed to find results and BnTeT was forced to take things into his own hands, not only dominating the server throughout 2018 and 2019 but also taking on the In-Gamer Leader role and leading his team.
Things changed completely for BnTeT at the end of 2019, as he joined the all-new Gen.G squad in December and has already won an event, taking home DreamHack Open Anaheim in Feb 2020.
The player once again impressed throughout the event and his future now looks incredibly bright.
