BnTeT out, Freeman in: TYLOO revamp its CS:GO roster

Chinese CS:GO giant TYLOO has added Unsheng “aristo” Jin and WingHei “freeman” Cheung to its roster. To make place for the new tandem, the organization has released the 24-year-old veteran Hansel “⁠BnTeT⁠” Ferdinand and moved YuanZhang “⁠Attacker⁠” Sheng to the bench.

The announcement comes in the aftermath of TYLOO’s failure to qualify for IEM Major Rio, after finishing fourth in the Asia-Pacific RMR – Chinese Qualifiers, behind Rare Atom, Lynn Vision Gaming, and Wings Up Gaming. Earlier this year, the Chinese team’s dismal performance at PGL Antwerp RMR snapped their streak of four consecutive Major appearances. Since FACEIT’s 2018 tournament in London, which was also the only occasion the Chinese team was able to advance past the first stage, they had competed in every Major.

Freeman reunites with TYLOO

After playing for popular regional esports teams like NSN Gaming, Only One World,  and YK Gaming for more than two years, WingHei “Freeman” Cheung has rejoined TYLOO. He first joined the Chinese powerhouse in 2019 following his phenomenal spells with Flash Gaming and ViCi Gaming. The rifler, however, only spent less than a year with the team before being benched in April 2020 to make room for Zhenghao “DANK1NG” Lv’s return.

Aristo, on the other side, enters the team with relatively less experience, having briefly played for Team NSN and SC in the past. However, he toiled through the ranks for years as a player before joining his last club, CR4ZY, and making a Major in 2019. In 22 maps recorded on HLTV, the 18-year-old rifler averaged a 1.06 rating against Chinese and Mongolian opponents.

TYLOO’s new CS:GO roster:

  • WingHei “⁠Freeman⁠” Cheung
  • Kelun “⁠SLOWLY⁠” Sun
  • Zhenghao “⁠DANK1NG⁠” Lv
  • YuLun “⁠Summer⁠” Cai
  • Junsheng “⁠aristo⁠” Jin
  • Nestor “⁠LETN1⁠” Tanić (coach)
  • YuanZhang “⁠Attacker⁠” Sheng (benched)

BnTeT’s second stint with TYLOO comes to an end

While the necessary revamp reunite the organization with his old veteran freeman, it also marks the end of BnTeT’s second stint with TYLOO. Between March 2017 and December 2019, BnTeT spent more than two years with TYLOO, taking the group to the top of the Chinese Counter-Strike league and the top ten position in the global rankings.

 

As 2019 drew to an end, BnTeT stepped down from in-game leadership and joined Gen.G’s inaugural CS:GO roster under Damian “⁠daps⁠” Steele. On October 19, the new roster will make its international debut at BLAST Premier Fall Showdown 2022. TYLOO earned a spot in the competition after winning the 5E Arena Asia Cup 2022.
