Conversely, buster had been part of Cloud9 since January 2023, when he replaced Timofey "interz" Yakushin. Although the Kazakh rifler had limited time to showcase his abilities, he contributed to their victory in the tier-two tournament Brazy Party in May and a second-place finish in ESL Pro League Season 17 in March. 

However, it is worth noting that after buster's inclusion, Cloud9 failed to qualify for its first Major tournament with this Russian lineup, a moment that will be remembered by many fans.

After an illustrious tenure with NAVI, ElectroNic and Perfecto have departed from the Ukrainian organization. Their time with NAVI witnessed the team's peak performance in CS:GO, particularly in 2021. 

During that remarkable year, NAVI achieved numerous victories in top-tier tournaments, including the BLAST Premier Global Final in January, IEM Cologne in July, ESL Pro League Season 14, and the Intel Grand Slam in September, as well as the significant triumph at the PGL Stockholm Major in November.

However, NAVI's success in securing titles dwindled during 2022 and 2023. The impact of the Russian invasion of Ukraine in February 2022, followed by the departure of Boombl4 in May of the same year, significantly affected the team's trajectory. 

ElectroNic was the IGL of NAVI's squad in 2023

ElectroNic took on the role of in-game leader in June 2022, but only managed to guide NAVI to one tournament victory, the BLAST Premier Spring Final held in that same month.

In the upcoming endeavor, ElectroNic will have the opportunity to lead a team that is potentially stronger than NAVI, with sh1ro and Ax1Le being named the third and fourth-best players in the world in 2022, according to HLTV rankings. Meanwhile, Perfecto will continue to contribute in his supportive role, enhancing the performance of the team's mechanically gifted players.

The newly formed Cloud9 lineup, featuring ElectroNic and Perfecto, will make its debut at IEM Cologne, scheduled to take place from July 25 to August 6. This event could potentially mark the first tournament of CS2 or be a significant tier-one tournament in the realm of CS:GO.
