Cloud9 to replace interz; Forester, SANJI, buster among candidates - Report

Cloud9 have begun talks over making their first lineup change in over two years, setting their sights on multiple candidates.

Timofey "⁠interz⁠" Yakushin is on the way out of Cloud9, known CIS insider Alexey "⁠OverDrive⁠" Birukov says and sources have confirmed to HLTV.org.

The Russian squad have yet to land a replacement for the support player but are currently considering several options. OverDrive has said on his Telegram channel that Igor "⁠Forester⁠" Bezotecheskiy and Sanjar "⁠SANJI⁠" Kuliev are two of "many candidates," and HLTV.org can add that sources have indicated Timur "⁠buster⁠" Tulepov as another.

Cloud9 are looking at buster as one of the possible replacements for interz

Forester is currently contracted to Entropiq, where he has been listed for transfer since October and remained the only player tied to the Czech organization, as the rest of the team has since been released. The 22-year-old was among the best-performing players on the lineup, averaging a 1.10 rating in 2022.

SANJI and buster have been sitting on the sidelines ever since they were benched in Virtus.pro last October and this May, respectively. The former was removed to make space for Evgenii "⁠FL1T⁠" Lebedev and the latter in favor of David "⁠n0rb3r7⁠" Danielyan and Petr "⁠fame⁠" Bolyshev, moves that have since yielded the team now competing under the neutral name Outsiders a Major title at IEM Rio.

Should changes in Cloud9 be confirmed, it would mark an end to the longest-standing roster currently competing at the top of CS:GO. The lineup around Vladislav "⁠nafany⁠" Gorshkov has remained the same for nearly two and a half years, having made their latest adjustment in July 2020, when Abay "⁠HObbit⁠" Khasenov replaced Anton "⁠supra⁠" Tšernobai in the team then known as Gambit Youngsters.

Cloud9 have plenty of time to ponder their options, as they currently have nothing on the calendar until at least IEM Katowice, which kicks off on January 31. The Russian-majority side would be one of the teams guaranteed a place at the main event based on their current standing in the ESL World Ranking, but it's unclear whether they would be able to attend after Poland decided to deny Russian citizens entry into the country from outside of the European Union in September amid Russia's invasion of Ukraine.

Perfecto is shadowed by his teammate, he might be the best support player CIS region have ever had, flamie was the reason Navi lost many tournaments.

yeah but this allegations weren't made from a 1st person party (that was directly involved) as I remember. But it's talked about as if there are proofs of that. I as well can say any thing about any player and accuse them of something. It doesn't mean everyone should believe me. But people still antagonize hobbit. Which is not ok

I said these are allegations because nothing is proved. As for the evidence it is not only about the chatlogs but also a teamspeak recording dexerto.com/csgo/coming-in-from-the-cold.. Not saying he is guilty, personaly I hope that he is clean but like it is said in the article the guy that released this accusations would also face the punishment if these claims will be confirmed. He has nothing to gain.

Because he probably was salty that C9 grinded so hard during online era and burst into the scene winning alot of things for the first 6 months and probably destroyed his "favourite" team. That's why he's salty and "hates" on C9. Can't think of any other reason cause they're all so nice, Especially Hobb1t.

I have a long way to be 35yo. Watch his stats at majors, then watch his CT side's, then think again if They should keep him. Sorry but if some1 cant improve for 3 years, it means he reached his limit and its way lower than org expects from him. and e-sports is growing every single year in very fast rate, its actually one of the fastest growing businesses in the world.

have you watched him play? Obviusly a support players stats are gonna be dogshit when all his teamates are gone in the important matches. stats dont mean shit, that tells u what positions people are playing as mutch as anything. u can tell they are not themselfs. interz however have this same vibe xyp had in 2016, hes doing his role, and more, hes ready to win 4 majors and be the greatest of all time. but others like especially device are not. and then at some point the rest of his team gets ready for it. in part due to that T side comeback on train in the major. device gets over his issues and its GG for other teams. if u said oh device has 1.4 rating in group stages and xyp dosent so lets kick him and get some scrub. there is a 0 precent chance they do what they did.

hes not playing the "clutch position" there is no sutch thing. and the fact that u think there is,says a lot about your understanding of the game. if hes in a clutch esecially a 1v2 or worse the round allready went wrong. his position is support player. his main contributions are playing in realy shit spots and supporting his team with utility and giving them space. a good support player not only dose that but allso is confortable in the 40-60 duels hes gonna be in a lot of the time.

Lmao, that's why other ‘support’ players in his posting like perfecto twistzz, x9 when his younger always won a bunch of rounds in 1 V X positions. There's no way a team becomes top when it auto-loses when inters fails clutch so fucking bad, that's line instant -3, 4 round each map. Not even going to mention the fact is a joke when he can't multi-frag when playing on the CT site, way worse than SDY, You are probably one of those low IQs who cried when Sanji got kicked cus his dogshit...but u think he played ‘support role’
2022-12-06 17:21

twist is not playing the same brand of support. and yes perfecto is the 1 person in the world who is an upgrade for interz, in a russian team. even xyp in his record tournament for clutches had 17 clutch wins out of 409. even this, the best case scenario its overall impact is kinda small. more important is his ability to play in disadvantaged duels constantly and still win them more than expected. and his utility usage. Allso i guess he had this ability to eigther get multi kills or get 1 kill and fall back. combined with astralis's cordinated retakes this meant he allways gave his team a good shot in rounds when they came to him. now intersz allso has some of theese qualities, and i think they would have blossomed if hes team would have stopped being chockers

exactly, the more reason to kick him aside from his poor performance maybe they can find better entry/igl. shiro sometimes is vocal enough in giving motivation/calls, maybe he can be the new igl. then they should find new entry. dunno, what role supra was in this lineup? but it can take a toll in shiro performance
2022-12-05 11:15
3 replies
well maybe it is too harsh on nafany, imagine separating him from shiro in general i think c9 have many things to be improved like utility usage or maybe swapping igl role to focus in his performance. like in avangar/vp core, jame and qikert repeatedly swapping the igl role when jame's performance hits low(well they have better system too i think, dunno if c9 can make one). instead of kicking someone, especially interz, he not bad at his role.

I agree with you, a lineup change might just cause a downward spiral. They have all the pieces to win, but it seems like the stratbook needs a refresh. Interz isn't bad at what he does, and apart from Forester the replacements are awful. Forester isn't a support player though, so bringing him would shake up the whole system they run

he's still very good and reason his stats are not as good is because him and sh1ro are doing lots of mid round calling. Last year he could focus more on him self, not it's different. Also, when you win more your stats get higher, that's normal except for stat padders.

2022-12-05 10:43
Although a roster change seemed inevitable I really don’t think Interz was the problem. Just seems like the odd man out because Sh1ro, Ax1le, and Hobbit have the stats and Nafany is IGL. Hope he finds an opportunity with another squad. Kicking Interz has to be for more firepower so I’d imagine Forester maybe Buster. Forester is the real deal tho, I really think he’s ready for tier 1.

Poor interz, I hope he can join a team like k23 and carry them, maybe not as a support player anymore, him and x5 are sick players in hard roles and could probably do better than some „“star“ players in those roles because they’re smarter. For c9 I hope they get maybe someone from spirit… siren, patsi… or forester, shalfey… they could even try to break the current internal conflicts Navi squad and steal perfecto, electronic or bit But they need someone who’s giving them more confidence Hoping for SH1RO NAF4NY AX1LE HOBB1T PATS1/S1REN/B1T/F0RESTER

The fact that they even consider SANJI who hasn’t played for over a year and was a terrible player before that says a lot. bUt hEs a sUpPoRt pLaYeR. When I think of support player, I think of someone who’s playing the bitch roles, like anchoring B apps on Mirage, or Nuke ramp anchor, or B anchor on Vertigo, and then on T side he’s just filling the gap. Fun fact: SANJI didn’t do any of this, because firepower wise he wouldn’t be able to hold down the sites, so he was there just to drop AWP to Jame. If you want to replace interz and you consider SANJI as a possible replacement, it says a lot

Forester should be the first choice (and the only one). He can share support roles with hobbit. The guy has more ceiling than interz. Sorry but ppl compare him xypex or perfecto. When interz clutch? I would prefer Magix but I guess spirit won't sell him easily. If they had igl available, I would -nafany but he is the only agressive rifler rn. Hobbit also help with calling and he is a strong persona in this team.

This is just a change for the sake of changing, trying something new. Interz was never bad
2022-12-05 21:51
Forester is a good player to replace him. Not excited about the other options. I doubt they would be able to improve the team.
2022-12-05 23:30
lez go busta
2022-12-05 23:33
It's either Forester or Sanji please don't sign that noob Buster.
2022-12-06 00:14

This is unnecessary.. Cloud 9 should keep interz.

Forester is better
2022-12-06 07:12
It's be nice to see a Sanji comeback it he has the drive.
2022-12-06 07:25
If C9 wants to make a mistake, they will kick interz for someone from this list. Roster changes won't resolve their problems, just will give them some new.
2022-12-06 09:51
C9 would be tier 5 without s1hro replace interz and nafany
