Savage, tb return in CyberZen
Chinese veterans Bin "Savage" Liu and BingYuan "tb" Li have returned to professional competitions in a new lineup under the CyberZen banner where they'll team up with three former QeeYou members.
Both Bin "Savage" Liu and BingYuan "tb" Li hung up their mice shortly after CS:GO came out, as their long-time TyLoo team switched to the new game version in early 2013, which the two refused to play.
In April of this year, both players announced their comeback to competitive play after joining the pow lineup, but we didn't see much of them outside of Asia.
Savage joins his 1.6 TyLoo teammate tb in CyberZen
The 1.6 veterans have now been announced as players of a newly formed squad under the name CyberZen where they will join up with three former members of the now disbanded QeeYou - WeiJie "zhokiNg" Zhong, Zhuo "advent" Liang and ZhiHong "aumaN" Liu.
HLTV.org learned that CyberZen will have their own training place and will receive a salary.
"We love CS, Savage and I, we cannot give it up, so we decided to come back to be professional players.
There is no doubt that CS:GO will be the future trend. It is essential to create a strong team in China. In the short term we want to reach the top of Asia. After that we want to show Chinese teams' strength in the world stage," tb said in a statement to HLTV.org
When asked about upcoming tournaments for the team, tb highlighted the Chinese division of StarLadder i-League, the recently announced Iceberg Pro League and Fulcrum Gamers League, and the Chinese ESWC qualifier.
