5POWER revamp roster

5POWER have announced the addition of former Panda members Bin "Savage" Liu and Lei "bottle" Mao, who replaced Mongolian duo Gan-Erdene "dobu" Batbold and Batbayar "kabal" Bat-Enkh on the roster.

5POWER announced the roster changes on Weibo, highlighting their biggest goal: to make it to the StarLadder Major, for which they will have to qualify via the Asia Minor.

Fulfilling their aim would become an important milestone in the history of the organization, whose best achievement in the Major circuits was advancing to the Asia Minor ahead of the FACEIT Major with a lineup only featuring Peng "xiaosaGe" Song out of the current five.

Savage and bottle link up with 5POWER

With the changes, 5POWER will be looking to improve their results outside of the Majors, as well, as they had struggled to make their mark on both the Asian scene and internationally.

The move sees the former Panda squad, who placed last at StarSeries i-League Season 7 at the beginning of April, brought down to just two players, with Savage and bottle following in the footsteps of Zhen "HZ" Huang, who left to form OneThree.

It is also a continuation of what looks to become a significant shift in the Chinese scene, which has so far seen WingHei "Freeman" Cheung announce parting ways with ViCi, the formation of OneThree, and rumors spread surrounding changes in TYLOO.

The new 5POWER roster features the following five:

China Peng "xiaosaGe" Song
China Lifan "Viva" Ran
China Wei "shuadapai" Wang
China Bin "Savage" Liu
China Lei "bottle" Mao

2019-05-01 13:07
Do you know where is Woxic and Tarik from?
2019-05-01 18:07
All of them ran out of Turkish scene because have no one to play with , honestly they have the same peanut brain like xantares. Also Taruk is living in NA for a long time ,his english is perfect so i doubt he ever lived in Turkey.

Who will be the 2rd best Chinese team? ex-TyLoo or the new 5Power?

TYLOO didn't disband
2019-05-02 05:37
Yeah I know. Ex-tyloo refers to Captain Mo and DD's new roster which has the potential to become the second best Chinese team since Freeman and kaze's leave made VG less competitive.

O kaze said he's leaving to? Rip VG. With Freeman and kaze they could definitely make a Asian super team of course with BnTet.
2019-05-02 16:05
Kaze's leave has not been comfirmed and Freeman implied that he would join Tyloo after iem sydney.

I hope TYLOO get a good coach and Freeman join cuz that would be a stacked roster. Summer, Freeman, BnTet, somebody, and xxcurate. I hope it wouldn't be a disappointment like the one with attacker

On the otherside Dobu and kabal teaming up with ex teammates including ncl,tsogoo and nin9 from trio of ex Storm Riders(orgnazition not confirmed at the moment. Team Mongolia : Dobu Kabal Tsogoo Ncl Nin9 Source : facebook.com/dobuCSGO/photos/a.112076521..

there was this picture on reddit of a tweet from dobu stating that he is happy to announce the new tyloo roster consisting of Bntet xccurate somebody Freeman and dobu, but i can't find the tweet, here's the link though: reddit.com/r/GlobalOffensive/comments/bh..
2019-05-02 10:50
i think thats just troll post

China Slasher8888 
hopefully, i doubt tyloo can do anything with that, but i'm being skeptical, because everything has been adding up recently: Freeman leaving vici, tyloo kicking their coach, and even 5power replacing dobu. But seriously though, that new roster might do some damage. Key word: MIGHT, since i learnt that hyping up return of og players like summer and attacker was bad idea lmao
2019-05-02 10:53
attacker summer was actually bad idea :)) i agree with that

China TylootoMajor 
He's still with 5power under contract, and most likely wont be able to join a team until after the major or his contract ends up. If dobu were to join TyLoo, they could play either SEA or Greater China qualifier as Mongolia is represented at East Asian and not SEA. Also dobu posted on twitter saying he will play with the ex-storm riders roster for the minor qualifier
