TyLoo beat Tainted Minds to qualify for DreamHack Masters Marseille

TyLoo have booked their spot at DreamHack Masters Marseille after defeating Tainted Minds 2-1 in the grand final of the Asian closed qualifier.

The biggest surprise of this eight-team closed qualifier came in the early exit of MVP PK, who were recently in attendance at the StarSeries event, following a defeat to Eclipse in the first round, with BOOT-d[S], one of the two invitees, also failing to impress after losing to Tainted Minds in the semi-final.

The final kicked off on TYLOO's map pick, Cobblestone, with the Chinese side securing a near-flawless CT pistol. Tainted Minds responded with a successful force-buy, however, setting themselves up for a 4-1 lead after also winning the first gun round.

Nevertheless,HaoWen "⁠somebody⁠" Xu and co. then went on a massive run, picking up every remaining round of the half, and losing only their first gun round as Terrorists before closing out the map, 16-5.

BnTeT led the way for TyLoo

TYLOO carried that momentum into their opponents' map pick, Cache, and won five straight rounds without much response, their fifth thanks to a 1v2 clutch from Hansel "⁠BnTeT⁠" Ferdinand. That was when Tainted Minds' defence came to life, with the Australians securing seven rounds in a row to bring the scoreline to 7-5. Still, the Chinese squad would switch sides in the driving seat following a three-round winning streak by the end of the first half.

Tainted Minds responded well to a second pistol loss and hit back in the following round. That successful eco ended up turning the game on its head, with the Australians eventually locking down the map, 16-12. 

Next up was Inferno, and Tainted Minds got off to a flying start by stringing six rounds together. TYLOO would not back down, however, and managed to reduce the deficit to just three rounds by half-time.

The Australians had their eyes on the prize and quickly hit 14 rounds in the second half. However, with BnTeT stepping up to the plate, TYLOO won nine rounds a row to turn the game around and book their place in the next DreamHack Masters event.

It hasnt realy been getting much better if u think about it. I do agree about the viewership. Though it will still be high from china without chinese teams.
2018-03-08 16:57
It's to help develop the scene my friend. It is in every CS fan's best interest to spread CS to new markets because, honestly, csgo has been dying a little, major viewership is stagnated and has started dropping. If asia begins to develop an interest for CS, then csgo will receive a major boost in viewership, player base, competitiveness (more talent touching the game means more chances a star player is born), as well as sponsors and organizations investing into competitive counter strike. Besides, it's only one spot, it's not like the tournament would be that much more interesting if AGO was here instead of Tyloo or something.

Honestly I don't mind. I think it's fun to see teams from regions we don't see often compete internationally. They're definitely a cut below the tier one team we usually see but they Tyloo seems to be alright. Plus, they're gonna need to play against tier 1 teams if the Asia region is ever gonna grow.
