TYLOO top PAL Summer group stage; playoff bracket determined

YuLun "⁠Summer⁠" Cai's squad finished the round-robin group stage of the Asian Regional Major Ranking event with eight wins and one loss, taking the first place going into the playoffs ahead of rivals ViCi and Invictus.

TYLOO returned to a fully-Chinese lineup back in April when Seon-Ho "⁠xeta⁠" Son and WingHei "⁠Freeman⁠" Cheung departed the team due to coronavirus concerns, and have made steps to once again cement the title of the best team in Asia since adding Kelun "⁠SLOWLY⁠" Sun and Zhenghao "⁠DANK1NG⁠" Lv. The Mongolian side TIGER upset them in the grand final of ESL One: Road to Rio - Asia, the first RMR event back in May, but since then, TYLOO has been dominant, winning DreamHack Masters Spring 2020 - Asia and the ESL Pro League S12 Asia Qualifier.

TYLOO have been looking strong since the latest changes

Going into Perfect World Asia League Summer 2020, TYLOO had a five series win-streak over domestic rivals ViCi, and extended that with another convincing win in the group stage, adding onto it a victory over Erdenetsogt "⁠erkaSt⁠" Gantulga's TIGER as well. The only team that mustered a win over TYLOO was Invictus, who together with the aforementioned ViCi and TIGER form the top 4 of the eight teams heading into playoffs.

The remainder of the playoff teams include Thai squads Lucid Dream and Beyond, as well as Love "⁠havoK⁠" Paras's Divine Vendetta and the third-highest-ranked Mongolian side D13. Out of competition are Bren and Mazaalai, with the latter mustering just one win, with the pre-playoffs exit leaving them without a single RMR point added to their tally.

As the group stage has been concluded, the playoffs are on the cards next, with the matches set to take place within the next week. The single-elimination BO3 playoffs will kick off with the following matchups:

China TYLOO vs. Asia Divine Vendetta
Mongolia TIGER vs. Thailand Beyond
China ViCi vs. Thailand Lucid Dream
China Invictus vs. Mongolia D13

9 bo3 matches per teams to eliminate 2 teams lmaooo GG wp
2020-07-12 16:06
Yeah personally i liked this system. Creates more chances for upsets and is more exciting cause we probably know who the top 4 teams are gonna be its exciting to find out who the bottom four will be

ez for Tyloo
2020-07-12 16:06
They had to play 9 bo3's and now there's a playoff bracket? WTF
2020-07-12 16:06
yeah that's so stupid, imagine a system where 45 bo3's are played to eliminate 2 teams and now there is a single elimination playoff bracket with an overall number of bo3's of 7 haha like who designed that? they had time for 45 bo3's but now the fate of these teams rely on 1 bo3
2020-07-12 18:01
it makes absolutely no sense, feels bad especially for divine vendetta...

Divine Vendetta is lucky for even getting into the playoffs.
2020-07-12 18:05
Are they tho? Bren and Mazalai were pretty bad.

They are lucky that 6/8 teams get into the playoffs which makes no sense with the extremely long group stage.
2020-07-12 21:00
ok, that makes sense
2020-07-12 21:02
Divine vendetta deserved to be higher imo winning one map against vici and the rest of them were 14-16 and 19-16 losses. 3 maps against invictus 3 maps against beyond. Beating tiger 2-0 they deserved to be higher than d13 i guess 6th. Sad to see them choke the important matches but they're still miles better than lucid dream , bren and mazaalai. Probably on the same level or better than d13 rn
2020-07-12 19:19
More match = more food from fixing the games.

TYLOO can win over T3 team in Europe definitely. Just don't forget last year ViCi beated North twice to play in Katowice Major.

2020-07-13 06:22
DV although being at bottom had close 3 mapper series against beyond invictus and ViCi a map win a 16-14 loss and and OT. Not expecting them to win against tyloo but this middle eastern team has certainly impressed a lot

DV is a good team, might have a bright future
2020-07-12 16:55
I hope so. Getting into the playoff means they've qualified for the fall rmr PAL event so well see them again in august lets see how much can dv improve
2020-07-12 19:20
FUUUCCCCCKKKKKKK
2020-07-12 16:23
Yeah ik it was a good run I guess xd. If we had won against bren we would have faced invictus or vici so imo no chance for DV against chinese teams rn. They've qualified for the fall event by getting into the playoff hope they can get ready and cause some upsets by then
2020-07-12 16:29
Tyloo will win the 2021 Shanghai major
2020-07-12 17:10
Wut? Is there gonna be a Shanghai major? I thought Shanghai only holds Dota and LOL events
2020-07-13 01:59
Never ever way too many china haters and racists
2020-07-13 08:51
your id seems familiar... have u watched XIxi's stream before?
2020-07-13 17:59
I m watching lots of chinese streams and i have Mo ln steam. Mo and CSBOYS know me cuz ive sent a fan letter to mo via 5e
2020-07-14 07:42
Yes 2021 2 majors will be organized by PERFECTWORLD.
2020-07-13 13:50
That's not real bro. Having one is enjoyable and enough; having two is not possible since clutch island and summit deserve one as well.
2020-07-13 18:01
come on, Ejram and pokemon 60 bomb to beat Tyloo 2-0, I believe

TYLOO is insane, I think it's just the matter of time before they will enter TOP 30. They will win this tournament for sure.
2020-07-12 18:00
unless they throw vs DV lmao, DV does not deserve 8th, they choked against Beyond, ViCi, Invictus and Bren
2020-07-12 18:07
Yeah DV could have been top 4 easily. They choked the important games but all of them went pretty close . On a good day where they won't choke i expect the match to be a relatively close 3 mapper
2020-07-12 19:16
vs Invictus it was a close game, but Invictus were better in the end. Bren was better than them aswell.
2020-07-12 20:51
Good job boys
2020-07-12 19:54
Tyloo should play in other regions. They are always destroying asian bots with 0 problems
2020-07-12 22:27
Seems that Bren lost their wits.
2020-07-12 23:00
