Tyloo players YuanZhang "AttackeR" Sheng and YuLun "fancy1" Cai, and the team's coach QiFang "Karsa" Su have been displaced by the organization while HaoWen "somebody" Xu was suspended for contacting other teams.
The most successful Chinese team TyLoo have removed two of its players, suspended one, and also fired their coach.
YuanZhang "AttackeR" Sheng, YuLun "fancy1" Cai, and HaoWen "somebody" Xu, who contacted players from other teams in order to create a new squad, have also received bans from various tournaments, including WCA, Pro Gamer League, ESL, and WESG.
TyLoo will attend the WESG 2016 World Finals on January 12th with three stand-ins as only two players remain from their previous lineup. Here is their roster for the event:
"First of all, the players never actually had a contract in writing with TyLoo. The organization promised that the players would have the same basic salary for every single player but they failed their promise. DD, and fancy1 were later offered more salary but were told to not tell this to other teammates. DD accepted, fancy1 refused.
This caused resentment for attacker, somebody, and karsa. The organization didn’t keep their promise to pay everyone the same salary so players decided to leave. Then TyLoo made an alliance with the event organizers to ban the players.
We will give HLTV.org a more detailed statement on January 11."
** HLTV.org received an official statement from TyLoo saying that the players actually are under contract and have been removed due to damaging the relationships in the team and with the organization.
"Since TYLOO CSGO team returned to China after the E-League Major Qualifier, team coach Qifang Su (Karsa) and player Yulun Cai (fancy1) have been contacting with other organization, while still in the contract period, and also persuaded teammates to join the other organisation. The behavior has not only damaged the good relationship with the company, but also stimulated internal conflicts in the team.
After serious consultations, the company has make the following decisions:
1. Discharges Qifang Su’s (Karsa) position as team coach.
2. Yulun Cai (fancy1) and Yuanzhang Sheng (AttackeR) into inactive status, banned to represent TYLOO participating any events.
3. Haowen Xu (somebody) into suspension.
We also want to thanks to Hui Wu (DD) and Ke Liu (Mo) for trusting the company in any situation."
It has also been explained that AttackeR recently signed (in November) a new contract set to expire in April 2019, while the contracts of fancy1 and somebody will expire at the end of February 2017. That, however, does not mean that the players will remain banned from participating in all mentioned events until their contracts expire, but until the conflict is resolved.
The organization points out that the situation of somebody differs from the other two players as they are still in talks with him about the future.
