TYLOO replace xccurate with Freeman in starting lineup

The Chinese organization TYLOO has announced that WingHei "Freeman" Cheung will be playing for their organization in place of Kevin "xccurate" Susanto, starting with the ESL Pro League Season 9 Finals.

Freeman officially joined TYLOO at the start of the month alongside Zhenghao "Danking" Lv, but both players did not participate in the Asia Minor qualifiers where TYLOO opted to use their old roster, albeit Freeman was signed up for the qualifier as the coach/backup player.

Freeman will represent TYLOO moving forward

Initially, no plans were revealed about how TYLOO plan to utilize their 7-man roster, but now, it has been announced that Freeman is stepping into the fray in favor of the team's AWPer, xccurate. The 21-year-old Indonesian joined the team at the start of 2018, helping them peak at the 10th place in the rankings, a record for an Asian team, after a number of playoff finishes at international events.

* StarLadder official Yegor "Panda" Kolomiets corrected a previous inaccuracy in the article as he stated that TYLOO's Asia Minor roster is in fact locked. TYLOO are forced to use xccurate on their road to the Major unless there is a "proper reason", such as a visa or health issue, that would allow them to swap in coach/backup player Freeman.

Freeman will have his LAN debut for the team at the ESL Pro League Finals on June 18 - June 23. Who will pick up the AWP for the Chinese side is currently unknown, as is the future of Danking, the 19-year-old AWPer they signed from BTRG.IMBA.

TYLOO now have:

Indonesia Hansel "BnTeT" Ferdinand
China HaoWen "somebody" Xu
China YuLun "Summer" Cai
China YuanZhang "AttackeR" Sheng
Hong Kong WingHei "Freeman" Cheung

Indonesia Kevin "xccurate" Susanto (backup)
China Zhenghao "Danking" Lv (backup)

What the hell, man? xccurate is one of the best awpers I've ever seen in my life, because he is super aggressive awper like nifty or jugi, gl for freeman but I thinks he can enter to c9 or some good NA team because it is wasting a true potential

So it means Freeman will be able to replace him at the Asian Minor since xccurate truly has an illness?

freeman was listed as the coach in the minor qualifier so he can replace xcc in the minor, while dank1ng wasn't listed at all so he can't play at asia minor

By the rules, you can replace your player only with reserve player / coach and only if your player has visa or health issues. twitter.com/EL_pANdaRL/status/1139487905..

It's very simple & good for both parties, xccurate wants to continue his studies & TyLoo wants a Chinese-speaking roster because they suffered a lot & specially BnTeT as he had to translate stuff to xcc mid-game (if I understood correctly), Freeman isn't a bad player so he'll fit in easily I believe, although in terms of skill it is definitely a downgrade but it ain't a big one.

Guess he's a freeman now...
2019-06-14 14:47
xcc will comeback much stronger, imo he is still the best awper in asia rn, not kaze (even though he is a pretty good awper too)
2019-06-14 14:49
expected
2019-06-14 14:50
LOL, what is the logic to remove your best player? I would love to see playing for some polish team with bntet
2019-06-14 14:50
Is Freeman coming in as an entry fragger? He's been more of a playmaker and i hope he stays in that role besides it'd be much better for somebody to continue doing entry and die first instead.

bad move imo
2019-06-14 17:26
I hope xccurate and his brother make a new team and become like ENCE
2019-06-14 17:31
with xccurate only ? i think it will be just a dream, if they add BnTeT then the dream will probably can become real the real indonesian star that have a consistent stats is only BnTeT
2019-06-15 04:02
Do you know anyone from ence before they go big other than allu?
2019-06-15 05:19

Idk what happen between xcc and BnTeT, but both unfollowing each other on all social media (even both unfriend on steam thoo!).. Maybe BnTeT benched him, u know that BnTeT like the leader of tyloo right after capt Mo retired..

i notice this too! i just know about the steam friend tho damn! if you look at bntet's insta comment, he answered most of his comments but avoided all the xccurate related stuff. Bntet is not the leader of tyloo tho kindy is their leader
2019-06-16 18:14
Good luck
2019-06-15 14:08
For people wondering why xccurate played bad lately it's because he took over the IGL role
