TyLoo has filled the void left by YuanZhang "AttackeR" Sheng with the signing of Indonesian talent Hansel "BnTeT" Ferdinand from Recca. AttackeR has parted ways with the Chinese organisation to join up with ex-TyLoo members YuLun "fancy1" Cai and QiFang "Karsa" Su who found a new home in a brand new organisation, Flash Gaming.
BnTeT is arguably the best player in his country and with his contract will still be able to compete with Recca in ESEA Open, BEYONDGODLIKE and ZEN League.
BnTeT provided the following statement found on HLTV:
"I am delighted that TyLoo contacted me to join their team," Ferdinand said. "I support the idea of trying new challenges, such as joining an international team.
"For me, TyLoo are one of the most successful esports organisations in Asia. I hope I can prove my worth in TyLoo and help them to reach new achievements and achieve bigger things."
BnTeT will be joining Zhen "HZ" Huang as the second player being signed in just two days.
HZ was officially signed to the Chinese organisation just yesterday. The player had been on loan to the organisation from AllGamers. TyLoo received the player on loan following the drama the unfolded around several players partaking in talks with other organisations while contracted to TyLoo.
TyLoo had removed AttackeR, fancy1, and the team's coach Karsa from the roster according to a report from HLTV.org in early January. HZ competed with his new organisation during the WESG 2016 World Finals and DreamHack Masters Las Vegas. TyLoo did not stand out at either event, finishing 5-8th in China before falling out 13-16th in Las Vegas. The Chinese organisations new roster will be travelling to Ukraine to participate in the StarLadder i-League StarSeries season three finals which it won the qualifier for out of its region. The event is set to take place April 4 to April 9 in Kiev, Ukraine and boast a prize pool of $300,000. TyLoo joins a list of teams including several top ten squads from the WWG CSGO Team Rankings.
The addition of Flash Gaming and split of VG.CyberZen into two different squads is showcasing the expansion of the region in the Counter-Strike scene.
