TIGER part ways with team

The Mongolian squad will remain united and are already on the lookout for a new home.

TIGER have parted ways with their Mongolian squad after a year together, the players have told HLTV.org. The team will stick together despite the setback in hopes of remaining a top contender in Asia and becoming a competitor on the world stage.

Initially headlined by Erdenetsogt "⁠erkaSt⁠" Gantulga under the AUGUST tag, the Asian squad were picked up by TIGER last March and came close to signing Owen "⁠smooya⁠" Butterfield and Marco "⁠Snappi⁠" Pfeiffer in May, although they didn't go through with the creation of the international team following high-profile victories against the likes of TYLOO and ViCi in their first-place finishes in ESL One: Road to Rio - Asia and Weibo Cup Asian Championship.

The Mongolian squad’s form oscillated after those results, and shortly after PAL Fall, Bold "⁠ncl⁠" Batsuh and erkaSt parted ways with the team — the latter joining the international Asian squad formed under the NG banner.

dobu and company are searching for a new organization to play for

With Boldbaatar "⁠rate⁠" Tengis and Sodbileg "⁠cool4st⁠" Batbaatar filling the vacant roster spots, TIGER qualified for DreamHack Masters Winter, in which they finished in second place, and won ESEA Open Season 35 Asia-Pacific, ending 2020 on a high note. In January, the team made one last change, bringing in 21-year-old Uuganbayar "⁠NEUZ⁠" Nyam-Otgon, formerly of Mazaalai, in lieu of cool4st.

"It's been a year since we joined TIGER, and during that time we've had a lot of success and proved that we're one of the best teams in Asia,” Gan-Erdene "⁠dobu⁠" Batbold told HLTV.org. "Now our goal is to become a stable No.1 team in Asia and also become a strong team that can compete against the best teams in the world.

"Unfortunately, our time with TIGER ends here. We are now searching for a new organization that will help us compete on the international stage and we can be reached at dobu1337@gmail.com. We would also like to thank all our fans that support us."

TIGER had the following roster:

Mongolia Gan-Erdene "⁠dobu⁠" Batbold
Mongolia Batbayar "⁠kabal⁠" Bat-Enkh
Mongolia Uuganbayar "⁠NEUZ⁠" Nyam-Otgon
Mongolia Yesuntumur "⁠nin9⁠" Gantulga
Mongolia Boldbaatar "⁠rate⁠" Tengis

Mongolia Tuguldur "flynn" Gansukh (coach)

so now Vici and Tyloo main threat is gone, I guess Tiger org decided that after erKast left this team had no potential. From on the verge to signing snappi and smooya too. Wonder how many asian teams will be left...

Have they even played with rate already? I don't know, their previous roster faced some problems with roleplayers, so it's understandable that the org. parted ways with them, but who will pick them up? Maybe if rate will fix their problems someone is going to, we will see. GL to those guys.

There are actually some rich companies in mongolia which interested in esports lately. I hope they will pick them up. But still esport is so fucking under developed in mongolia. Boomers think all pc center, cafes should be closed because they are affecting young peoples life badly lol. Also police doing anti esport things like trying to find drugs in pc center cafes with entire full armed swat team lmao (actually happened once)

Hopefully it turns around and esports get good recognition in Mongolia. Tiger is/was a sick team even without erkast and D13 is also somewhat good
