TyLoo confirm Mo's return; AE moved to backup
The 29-year-old has been out of action since mid-May after he was hospitalized due to a femoral neck fracture caused by accidentally falling off his segway (self-balance scooter).
During the two-month period of absence, Lei "bottle" Mao stepped in for the longest standing member at StarSeries i-League S5 Asian qualifier, while Yue "AE" Yu filled in at the main StarSeries event, ESL One Cologne Asia closed qualifier and CS:GO Asia Championships.
The organization hinted captainMo's return on Weibo in the recent DreamHack Masters Stockholm 2018 China closed qualifier (July 9-12), which witnessed him play the whole qualifier instead of AE. TYLOO went on to secure a slot at the $250,000 event yesterday.
Eclipse's former AWPer AE will sit out on the bench, and be a streamer for the time being. According to a source close to the player, captainMo is "unable to walk" as he still needs time to recover. The Chinese-Indonesian side have acquired their visas and will compete at the Asia Minor, which is set to kick off next Monday in London.
Moving forward, TYLOO's roster should be:
