Danking moves into TYLOO's starting lineup

Zhenghao "⁠DANK1NG⁠" Lv has earned a spot in TYLOO's starting lineup, the Chinese organisation have announced.

The Chinese AWPer will step into the shoes of YuanZhang "⁠Attacker⁠" Sheng, who has been moved to a backup position as TYLOO continue to experiment with a six-man roster.

The changes come in the aftermath of TYLOO's early exit at the StarLadder Major. The Chinese squad, who had qualified for the showpiece event through the Asia Minor, were sent packing in the New Challengers Stage with a 0-3 record following defeats to G2, NRG and Complexity.

Attacker makes way for Danking

Attacker has been part of the team since January 1, when he re-signed with TYLOO together with YuLun "⁠Summer⁠" Cai after previously playing under the organisation for almost 18 months across two different spells.

DANK1NG, who has been on TYLOO's ranks since June, is expected to play his first competitive match for the team in the Chinese closed qualifier for IEM Beijing, scheduled for September 22-23.

With these changes, TYLOO now have:

China HaoWen "⁠somebody⁠" Xu
China YuLun "⁠Summer⁠" Cai
Indonesia Hansel "⁠BnTeT⁠" Ferdinand
Hong Kong WingHei "⁠Freeman⁠" Cheung
China Zhenghao "⁠DANK1NG⁠" Lv

China YuanZhang "⁠Attacker⁠" Sheng (backup)

kick their star player ? its like saying lets kick s1mple from navi if he is not russian LUL
2019-09-05 03:55
Yeah but the difference is that s1mple is fluent in Russian whereas BnTeT can speak Chinese but he isn't fluent Maybe -BnTeT and he can go to EU roster
2019-09-05 04:43
He just go Cloud9 for koosta
2019-09-05 05:44
Agree, player like BnTeT don't deserve to play in a team like tyloo. His playstyle is not in asian level anymore. Also he's the fragging type of player, not an IGL.
2019-09-05 05:47
he can be a Xyp9x type player on a team like FaZe or mouz from what ive seen hes a good midround player and is good with nades/flashes
2019-09-05 06:02
Really? He's not that good for top Na/EU team imo.. Yeah he mayb fit for hellreiser or complexity type of roster

he was never meant to be a star on a top international team but he definitely can be a good filler imo if FaZe had picked him up instead of AdreN, they would have looked better as a team
2019-09-07 06:43
+1 Too much risk involve should faze decide to sign him, Adren a logical choice
2019-09-08 06:27
I think that would be better in terms of communication but how about the team's fire power? As all we know Bntet is really good at fragging.
2019-09-05 03:55
this team is filled with fraggers, what are u talking about? i don't think it'll make much of a difference skill-wise if he left i really think with their style of play, they need better synergy and u absolutely need better comms for that to be possible

kaze is good option ,but Tyloo needs 3 Chinese to maintain the Chinese frag.Not including Freeman although he is a Chinese but he is from Hk.So it's hard to bring kaze to the team.

Hmm decent. I mean, TyLoo didnt really have an AWPer, which they do have now. But, removing Attacker...hmm i dont know.
2019-09-05 03:55
Attacker now and then very different dude, he not as good as then.
2019-09-05 05:34
They should have gotten kaze insted
2019-09-05 07:54
+1 but then they would be english speaking again, i think they try to be a chinese speaking team, even tho bntet chinese aint great
2019-09-05 08:03
are u sure kaze doesnt speak chinese? in dota many malaysian players play on chinese-speaking teams, and kae's current team has 4 chinese players
2019-09-05 08:42
Im pretty sure, kaze do speak a little, he used to play for flash gaming with a almost all chinese lineup and he currently play on a almost all chinese lineup, only none chinese is him
2019-09-05 10:03
He's chinese malaysian, ofcourse he can speak chinese
2019-09-05 10:22
