Asian Giants TYLOO Gaming have revamped their Counter Strike roster with some international blood ahead of the 2023 Pro Season. Cheung “Freeman” Wing-hei is the only player to have retained his spot at TYLOO while the others have been let go by the organization.
Luka “emi” Vukovi, Marin “ROGA” Rogi and ex-IHC Tengis “sk0R” Batjargal, and Sun “SLOWLY” Kelun will be joining the newly revamped roster of TYLOO’s. Since Sk0R’s unexpected removal from IHC’s team before the Asia RMR in April, the European combo have been quiet since their time with Partizan Esports.
The CSGO community went into an uproar after hearing about this unlikely pairing of gamers, in part because of the language barrier. The “most random” lineup ever, according to one CSGO fan on Reddit, while some are stunned that TYLOO picked emi and ROGA instead of one of the many other possible combinations.
Nestor “LETN1” Tanić will take up the reins, of head coach at TYLOO. LETN1 was previously featured on the rosters of teams, CR4ZY, c0ntact, and EXTREMUM before the latter ceased their operations in the December of 2021.
ex-IHC member, sk0R, who played for Mongolia’s top side back when they were known as IHC, has been named to the starting five for the international team, much to the dismay of their fans after he and IHC parted ways in March 2022.
In spite of being one of the best-known teams in the Asia-Pacific area, TYLOO has struggled recently in displaying their prime form. The last time TYLOO made it to a major was at the PGL Stockholm in 2021. This may have prompted TYLOO to expand its focus outside its domestic audience in anticipation of Counter-Strike 2’s debut.
TYLOO’s new lineup will debut at the ESL Challenger League Asia Relegation which starts on June 9.
Currently, TYLOO now has:
- Luka “emi” Vuković
- WingHei “Freeman” Cheung
- Kelun “SLOWLY” Sun
- Marin “ROGA” Rogić
- Tengis “sk0R” Batjargal
- Nestor “LETN1” Tanić (coach)
