Beyond the cited differences. tenz's individual showings were also disappointing despite daps' praise (the in-game leaded called him "a player that has ridiculous aim and mechanical skill, but he lacks a ton of experience" in a July interview with HLTV), posting -24 and -30 K/D stats across eight maps at the recent outings in ECS Season 8 and ESL Pro League Season 10. Subroza has previously played on CLG, Ghost and Lazarus and he will be joining Cloud9 on a trial basis. Only one player of the Boston-winning lineup is still playing for the side: that is Timothy "autimatic" Ta.
