TyLoo has won their debut tournament in CS:GO, ECL 2013 Season 1, by defeating Nface 3-1 in the grand final to win the 70,000 RMB (~$11,320) first place prize.
The Chinese giants have been dominant domestically for years now and most recently racked up a memorable amount of prize money in Counter-Strike: Online in late 2012.
TyLoo has now attended their first tournament in Counter-Strike: Global Offensive after two weeks of online qualifications to determine the four participants in the 100,000 RMB tournament.
Opening round in Beijing saw TyLoo knocked out New4 with a 3-1 score while Nface had no issues defeating H5.zzcy with a clear 3-0 score to knock them into the lower bracket.
New4 wound up taking down H5.zzcy 3-0 in the lower bracket final, while TyLoo bested Nface, the former best Counter-Strike: Source team in China, 3-2 in the upper bracket final.
The former CS:S champions sent New4 packing with a 3-1 win in the consolidation final, setting themselves up with another best-of-five grand final against TyLoo.
TyLoo would come out on top as they secured three wins on de_dust2_se, de_mirage_go and de_train_se with scores of 16-6, 16-4 and 16-6 after a 14-16 loss on de_inferno_se.Broken tag
