After weeks of trials and talks, Cloud9 have finally chosen their replacement for Timofey “interz” Yakushin, in the form of Timur “buster” Tulepov.

Back in early December, reported that the North American-owned Counter-Strike outfit were looking for a replacement since their quarterfinal exit at the IEM Rio Major in November of last year.

According to several sources in the CS:GO community, buster has been high on Cloud9’s list of potential signings, however, there is said to have been multiple players that were considered and spoken to.

With interz confirmed to be leaving the esports organisation, we expect to hear from Cloud9 in the coming days to confirm buster as their newest addition to the CS:GO roster and with his debut to come at IEM Katowice, on January 31.

Buster was benched by Outsiders back in May of 2022 after the PGL Major Antwerp, where he and Mareks “YEKINDAR” Galinskis were replaced in the line-up.

With the move to Cloud9 imminent, buster will be hoping for a successful transition much like his ex-teammate YEKINDAR, who signed with Team Liquid late last year.

With the addition of the 23-year-old Kazakhstani rifler, the Cloud9 roster for their first series of the IEM Katowice play-in should look like this;

  • Vladislav “nafany” Gorshkov
  • Dmitry “sh1ro” Sokolov
  • Sergey “Ax1Le” Rykhtorov
  • Abay “Hobbit” Khasenov
  • Timur “buster” Tulepov
