TYLOO qualify for ESL Pro League S9 Finals
TYLOO and MVP PK were the favorites to advance to the ESL Pro League Season 9 Finals from the Asian group, where they earned a spot together with Lucid Dream and Alpha Red. The two Thai team suffered defeats in their opening match, making the second round TYLOO - MVP PK game a very important one.
The Chinese side managed a hard-fought victory, 2-1 (16-14 Dust2, 16-19 Mirage, 16-10 Train), to go into the last match of the group stage with six points and their destiny in their own hands.
TYLOO - Lucid Dream started on Overpass, the map pick of Kevin "xccurate" Susanto and co., but they didn't show much on the T side of the map. It was only after the switch, and with the help of the pistol round win, that TYLOO managed to secure map one, 16-14.
Mirage was a similar story, TYLOO had a strong CT side, but struggled in the second half, going down 14-13 at one point. That is when Hansel "BnTeT" Ferdinand clutched a 1v4 situation on A to break his opponent's bank and steal away the map, 16-14, and win the series 2-0.
