AVANGAR to field Buster at ELEAGUE Major

AVANGAR will be able to field their full line-up at the ELEAGUE Major after Timur "Buster" Tulepov managed to obtain a visa to enter the USA, HLTV.org has learned.

The Kazakhstani team had looked resigned to fielding coach Dastan "dastan" Akbayev at the Major after Timur "buster" Tulepov saw his visa application denied by the US embassy.

However, a source close to AVANGAR has told HLTV.org that the 18-year-old re-applied for a visa and was notified before the end of the year that his application had been approved, allowing him to travel with the squad to Atlanta.

Buster has been granted a US visa

The news comes as a huge boost for AVANGAR, who won the CIS Minor Championship in October after defeating Quantum Bellator Fire in the grand final of the event, which was held in Bucharest.

AVANGAR, who will compete in the ELEAGUE Major New Challengers Stage, will attend the event with:

Kazakhstan Timur "buster" Tulepov
Kazakhstan Aidyn "KrizzeN" Turlybekov
Kazakhstan Alexey "qikert" Golubev
Kazakhstan Dmitry "dimasick" Matvienko
Russia Dzhami "Jame" Ali

Kazakhstan Dastan "dastan" Akbayev (coach)

Well, they can win QBF. :D And even Vega, F3, TyLul probably. Hard to expect much since it's probably their first serious LAN, but will see.

2018-01-03 13:49
you dont pay much attention to the cs scene do you? They can beat Liquid and they can certainly beat misfits. Kangaroo hop away from the CS site if all you know is top team names like thorin

Sprout eSport 0:3? Hiko, are u kidding me?
2018-01-01 18:10
Sprout will make it to the groups.
2018-01-01 18:10
Lol, no.
2018-01-01 19:21
Compared with entering major group, 0-3 loss is much more impossible.After all it is a team of all members participating in major previously .But still ,Making it to the group is a difficult job.

thats pretty fair, i can see them picking up wins against tyloo qbf avangar sprout, depends on map selection for the stronger teams though
2018-01-01 23:45
Kazakhs are always happy for SS, but turks are always ready to hate us. And we call each other brothers...
