BnTeT: "We need a coach that can stabilize us, help us improve mentally"

Following TYLOO's elimination from PLG Grand Slam, we caught up with Hansel "⁠BnTeT⁠" Ferdinand to hear about the result, as well as sum up his 2018.

TYLOO made the quarter-finals of the $100,000 tournament in Abu Dhabi by securing two 16-14 wins in the group stage, over ECL and Grayhound, setting up a BO3 match against Sharks. The Brazilians managed to fight back a huge deficit on the first map, Cache, before eliminating TYLOO with a 16-6 on Mirage.

TYLOO are looking for a coach to help them at their early 2019 bootcamp

Our interview with BnTeT focused on his team's recent struggles, but we also talked about their overall successful 2018 and their search for a new coach.

What are your thoughts on the end of the year that you've had, I guess it's kinda unsatisfying, where are you as a team right now?

I think right now we have rollercoaster results. In Thailand (Toyota Master Bangkok), we had a chance to win the tournament, but we made a lot of mistakes in the final, and then we had a second place which was not pretty good or bad. And now in Abu Dhabi, we had our shot on Cache but we couldn't close it out, the same mistakes always happen and they made a comeback. On Mirage everyone was in bad mood because of our mistakes on Cache, which is a very common mistake in Asia I guess, we couldn't forget the first map and move on. That's why I think we need a coach that can stabilize us more, make us more professional and help us improve mentally both inside and outside of the game.

Before we go on further, even though this result isn't the best, but overall 2018 was pretty good for TyLoo, probably the best ever. You made consistently top 15 I'd say, you made the top 16 of the Major, the group stage. Are you still happy with the team overall?

Yeah, of course, we are the first Asian team to qualify to the Legends stage. I didn't see things like at this tournament where we lost and think we are bad. I saw it overall, and I think we did pretty good for Asian CS this year.

You mentioned the coach, do you have an idea who are you looking for, what kind of a guy do you want for the coach role?

We have a lot of candidates, and I can not mention them right now because it's not fixed. But, right now we have one guy that we want, and if their management and our management is ready, we will go with him to the Major.

What are you gonna be doing moving on from here, in the next year, do you have anything planned?

We are gonna take a break, and then on 9th or 10th January we will start our bootcamp in Germany for the Major. Hopefully we will have a already have a coach then and practice really hard, and have a good practice in Europe. Our goal is to qualify for the Legends stage one more time and avoid playing the Minor.

yes, our money went to china for new coach i guess :) pinnacle dident find anything wrong about it.. would be fun to see a statement of where the money went.. i guess 90 % to china and 9 % to brazil. pinnacle is supporting this matchfixing things when they dont come out with any information about their investigation. i think thats fair to know that if you loose money and they open a investigation that you atleast get some information about the outcome.

hahahaha Tyloo fixxed the second map there is no doubt about it they had 3.27 odds on pinnacle all of a sudden (on their own map pick) when they were actually the huge overdog on this game in general and now BnTeT acts like it was a mentality Problem:DD

2018-12-15 10:45
anyway tyloo is the best team in China now, even i don't want to say, all of them like 5P,Cyberzen,play the match and just for money. only tyloo put the reputation and dream first,tyloo has been seek all Chinese player and can't effort the money,this player all expensive than bntet and xcc,it's sadly but i must to say,tyloo is the last hope of Chinese csgo,i just want them keep going and never give up.

Yeah being at the major qualifiers again is a good step for tyloo, first time an asian team has stayed in the major which is a big step, just hope they keep it and do well, being an inconsistant team

vici plays legit now freeman and kaze can be really good
2018-12-16 02:15
i hope vici could be better but they lose to rng with 2-0, Chinese team doesn't have a environment which compete with high level team,tyloo became better than usual because they had training with Europe team in first few month this year,if vici wanna be better,they need get a chance play more match with Europe/NA team,but that is difficult in China, so bntet say they need a coach,they need a man to conclusion ,to help they study eu/na team's play,not just play with t5 team in China,that can't be better forever

Contacted by, the 19-year-old player revealed he will be the in-game leader and main AWPer of the team. We have learned that he can speak the basics of the Chinese (Mandarin) language, and will do most of the translating.

It seems that 2 Indonisian are Chinese ethnic and know some basic knowledge of Chinese initially, but still only can use some simple word while communicating. It does work but not enough
2018-12-15 16:22
yes,Chinese harder than English alot.especially in writing, English is easier and faster to learning

2018-12-15 12:24

I mean he could make the move because I feel that Tyloo is a much stronger team than BOOT.ds It could be a potential move

I said many times that dsn will be the best choice for TyLoo, but maybe BOOT's management and Team BOOT.d[S] won't let him go.
