The popular Chinese organization TYLOO aims to return to the top of Counter-Strike as the CS2 era begins with the signing of one of the most important lineups in the country, 5yclone.

There is no doubt that this is great news for the Chinese organization, the fans, and the Counter-Strike community in general, as it marks the return of one of the legendary organizations in the game. In addition, signing the 5yclone lineup generates a lot of expectations, as they are, without a doubt, the best Chinese team today.

TYLOO announce the signing of 5yclone’s lineup

Through a post on their Twitter/X account, the popular Chinese organization TYLOO announced the signing of 5yclone’s lineup to “revitalize” their Counter-Strike division.

This move had been rumored recently, as 5yclone put on a great quality show at the recent ESL Pro League S18. However, just a few minutes ago, the Chinese organization confirmed the signing of the following players:

  • Zhuo “advent” Liang
  • Qianhao “Moseyuh” Chen
  • Jingxiang “Mercury” Wang
  • Andrew “kaze” Khong
  • Yi “JamYoung” Yang

On the other hand, this move also comes after TYLOO confirmed the departure of Marin “ROGA” Rogić and Luka “emi” Vuković late last week. In addition, both Head Coach Nestor “LETN1” Tanić and Assistant Coach Darko “soLo” Mitić also departed.

As a result, this left, at times, TYLOO with only 3 active players on their roster, Tengis “sk0R” Batjargal, Kelun “SLOWLY” Sun, and WingHei “Freeman” Cheung. However, these players are now on the team’s bench.

TYLOO’s rebirth?

This move shows that TYLOO are willing to make a 180° turn to their situation to try to be again at the top of competitive Counter-Strike. Let’s remember that this organization is one of the most popular in esports history and, at the time, had a CS:GO squad full of players with a lot of quality.

Moreover, in the official announcement by TYLOO, the organization mentions that they want to “revitalize the glory of Chinese Counter-Strike,” something right and necessary in this region.

On the other hand, 5yclone’s lineup is undoubtedly one of the best Counter-Strike squads in China. Kaze and the rest of the squad showed very good signs of quality throughout the 2023 season, most recently in the ESL Pro League S18, where they were just one win away from advancing to the playoffs.

The first time we will see this lineup play under the TYLOO banner will be at the CS2 Asia Championships, which will be played from November 8-12, 2023, with a prize pool of $500,000.
