BnTeT Enters Free Agency
Hansel "BnTeT" Ferdinand
Indonesian Counter-Strike player Hansel "BnTeT" Ferdinand has announced he is entering free agency on Tuesday, January 28. He is looking for a new team after being without a squad for the past five months.

BnTeT has announced he is ready to return to professional Counter-Strike after spending the last five months on break. He was last seen competing with Team NKT who he joined in December 2022 and left after a 12-month stint, during which he hasn't accomplished much.

Even though Team NKT achieved some success in regional events, winning MESA League Season 3 and placing second at XSE Pro League 2023, NKT haven't made much noise in international Counter-Strike events.

Prior to joining Team NKT, BnTeT spent six months with TYLOO, who he re-joined after a two-year-long trip across North America and Europe, where he played for Gen.G and EXTREMUM. 

BnTeT Looking For A Fresh Start

BnTeT entered the Counter-Strike esports scene in 2012 with Team NXL. He has since played for several lesser regional teams, before joining TYLOO, where he made a name for himself as the best Asian Counter-Strike player.

With TYLOO, BnTeT won numerous domestic events and even left a mark in major international tournaments. His most notable accomplishments include winning StarLadder & ImbaTV Invitational Chongqing 2018, eXTREMESLAND 2019, and reaching the semifinals of CS:GO Asia Championships 2019.

Following a successful journey with TYLOO, BnTeT joined Gen.G in North America and found some success early on, winning DreamHack Open Anaheim 2020 and ESL One: Road to Rio - North America. Unfortunately, the team failed to accomplish much by the end of the year, leading to roster disbandment.

After a two-month break, TYLOO joined EXTREMUM in Europe, where he plugged the hole left by Justin "jks" Savage's departure, albeit unsuccessfully. The team didn't win a single tournament and pulled the plug on the project after missing the Major.

BnTeT returned to TYLOO in 2022 and spent a short stint on a trial for Apeks before joining Team NKT, where he spent the last year of his career before getting benched in August 2023.

Now, after being sidelined for five months, the 28-year-old is ready to return to pro play and is open to talking to any team or organisation.
