TyLoo, MVP project to SL i-League S2

TyLoo secured a place at the SL i-League StarSeries Season 2 Finals with a semi-final win over MVP project, while the Koreans defeated Athletico BH in the third-place decider for the third China spot.

After VG.CyberZen clinched the first China spot, day four of the SL i-League S2 China Finals saw Athletico taking on TYLOO in the second semi-final.

The uprising Australian roster secured the first map, Mirage (TYLOO's pick), with a 10-round Terrorist side, but the Chinese dominated Dust2 and Train with 16-5 and 16-2 scorelines, respectively.


TyLoo and MVP project qualify for the $300,000 finals

MVP Project had already been waiting in the third-place decider, which kicked off on Nuke. Athletico's impregnable 11-1 CT side gave them the initial map, but the Korean side were able to close out Train after 11-4 as Terrorists, followed by a comeback attempt from Stuart "sonic" Rayner and company.

Cobblestone decided the outcome of the series, and it was MVP Project who put in 12 rounds on the T side and conquered the last spot at 16-12.

With TYLOO and MVP Project joining the list of participants the attending teams of the $300,000 event are following:

Tyloo won over SK in april. I think if they play more in international events they will show they are a top 8 team.
2016-08-07 19:26
They need to serious work on the strategic aspect of CS. All the top Chinese teams need to, maybe in Asia in general as well. When I watched the PGL (Chinese one, not Romanian) tournament, Team X and Epsilon, low Tier 2 teams in EU, didn't have that much trouble. Chinese teams have good aim but lack strats and certain other tactical aspects. You cannot lose to Team X and Epsilon (both ~20th in the world) without even making it close and expect to be in the Top 8. However this is a very good chance for TyLoo to practice against international competition. Maybe they'll get to scrim some other teams before/during the tournament and gain valuable knowledge/experience.
