TYLOO sign LETN1 as new coach

The former iNation player and EXTREMUM analyst ventures into coaching with the Chinese squad.

TYLOO have announced the signing of Nestor "⁠LETN1⁠" Tanić as their new head coach. The Serbian joins on a transfer from the Estonian side SC, with whom he had a short-term contract from mid-April.

The new addition fills the gap left after the departure of QiFang "⁠Karsa⁠" Su, who stepped down from coaching the team in early April, less than two months after being promoted from the analyst position.

LETN1 finds a new home in TYLOO

LETN1 joins the squad just weeks after they failed to qualify for PGL Major Antwerp, placing third in the Asia Regional Major Ranking after suffering losses to IHC and Renegades. The team currently have nothing on the calendar in terms of official appearances but have begun a bootcamp in Europe, where the team plans to stay long-term in the future, Hansel "⁠BnTeT⁠" Ferdinand told HLTV.org last month and LETN1 confirmed.

BnTeT: "The plan is to spend more time in Europe than Asia in the future"

"The plan is to stay in Europe as much as possible, to compete and practice in EU. We will go back to Asia probably only for RMR tournaments," the 29-year-old said.

It's not the first time that TYLOO have decided to reach outside of China to bring in a new coach. Back in 2017 Luis "⁠peacemaker⁠" Tadeu stood behind the team for a few months, and in early 2019 Ivan "⁠Johnta⁠" Shevtsov briefly coached the Chinese side.

In those times TYLOO were known for their issues with communication, but LETN1 believes that won't be a big hindrance this time as he joins his former teammate BnTeT from their time together in EXTREMUM, where the Serbian was the analyst and manager.

"BnTeT is the IGL and his English is very good, we worked together the whole last year in EXTREMUM," he told HLTV.org. "He will translate to them whatever I say, but the majority of the players speak English, so they can understand what I am saying. Their calls are also mixed up with Chinese and English, so I don't think that will be the big problem."

TYLOO now have:

China YuLun "⁠Summer⁠" Cai
China Zhenghao "⁠DANK1NG⁠" Lv
China YuanZhang "⁠Attacker⁠" Sheng
China Kelun "⁠SLOWLY⁠" Sun
Indonesia Hansel "⁠BnTeT⁠" Ferdinand

Serbia Nestor "⁠LETN1⁠" Tanić (coach)

Who is left in these dumb reversed names? Wasn't that a stupid NA trend with relykS and nathE who both changed their names back? Your teammates called you Intel, interviewers call you Intel... but here we go with "LENTI" Are you waiting for a sponsorship from the billion-dollar company? Not happening,

Not going to edit my comment to prove my stupidity or how dumb it is that revesed has a few letters changed. It'd be a cool story if someone "lent 1" car to your mom when in need but you've just always been Intel.

It’s not even an opinion, I’m just wondering who’s left, like endangered rhinos or something. Thanks for the respectful response but I’ll recant on relykS because that name would get more dates on Tinder 🤷‍♂️

I hope this is the case. New batch of TyLoo players! I believe during johnta time, it was still with the old squads? Captainmo, didi and somebody (where at the time, their all brawl all aim CS was rewarded from time to time). Hence, their reluctance to play more structured. But, hopefully these new generation of players, can see it differently. TYLOO YONGYUAN ZAI WO XIN ZHONG <3

Yeah it was BnTeT DD Mo XCC and Somebody. DANK1NG is insane, slowly too much underperforming imo. He has a nice aim but he's not as he was in 2020. I belive this TYLOO will be a better version of old TYLOO. LENTI is very experienced guy. He will bring alot in this team cuz he's from tier1-1.5 level coach\analyst.

Its good they are bootcamping longterm in Europe now. The only way to become competetive for tyloo is to actually practise against the best teams. They cant keep smurfing in China and then come into tournaments and just bomb out instantly. Got to step up the game.
