TyLoo has removed YuanZhang "AttackeR" Sheng, YuLun "fancy1" Cai and the team's coach QiFang "Karsa" Su from the roster according to a report from HLTV.org. The report goes on to say HaoWen "somebody" Xu was suspended as well.
TyLoo, the best team in China as well as most of the Asia Pacific region is No. 20 team in the world according to our WWG CSGO Team Rankings but had struggled to find consistently strong performances outside of its region.
In addition to their removal and suspension, AttackeR, fancy1, and somebody have all received bans from participating in several events listed to include WCA, Pro Gamer League, ESL, and WESG according to the report.
In a statement to HLTV, the three players and their former coach said the following:
First of all, the players never actually had a contract in writing with TyLoo. The organization promised that the players would have the same basic salary for every single player but they failed their promise. DD, and fancy1 were later offered more salary but were told to not tell this to other teammates. DD accepted, fancy1 refused.
This caused resentment for attacker, somebody, and karsa. The organization didn’t keep their promise to pay everyone the same salary so players decided to leave. Then TyLoo made an alliance with the event organizers to ban the players.
We will give HLTV.org a more detailed statement on January 11.
The organization is to attend the WESG Grand Finals with three stand-ins as a result of this move.
TyLoo's WESG roster:
- Ke "Mo" Liu
- Hui "DD" Wu
- Zhen "HZ" Huang
- LiKan "ryk" Luo
- Lei "bottle" Mao
WWG has reached out to ESL for comment on the bans and will update as it comes in.
UPDATE: HLTV received a statement from TyLoo explaining the bans are from the organization based on contracts and not from the events themselves.
Since TYLOO CSGO team returned to China after the E-League Major Qualifier, team coach Qifang Su (Karsa) and player Yulun Cai (fancy1) have been contacting with other organization, while still in the contract period, and also persuaded teammates to join the other oranisation. The behavior has not only damaged the good relationship with the company, but also stimulated internal conflicts in the team.
After serious consultations, the company has make the following decisions:
1. Discharges Qifang Su’s (Karsa) position as team coach.
2. Yulun Cai (fancy1) and Yuanzhang Sheng (AttackeR) into inactive status, banned to represent TYLOO participating any events.
3. Haowen Xu (somebody) into suspension.
