TyLoo shut down .raw team
According to cnFrag.com, TyLoo have closed down their .raw Counter-Strike division.
The Chinese team had been within TyLoo's ranks since December, when they decided to switch homes following the expiry of their wNv.cn contracts.
With the .raw players' one-year contracts coming to an end, TyLoo have opted against offering them new deals in a bid to balance their books.
"This year's expenses have far exceeded our budget, so taking into account the club's long-term development, the club have decided to keep only one CS team," a TyLoo statement read.
Meanwhile, TyLoo have announced they have picked up Bin "Savage" Liu from the now disbanded .raw team and Yangbo "P1rate" Dai, a former member of wNv.cn and SC.United.
The two new players will step in for the retired Zhengwei "alex" Bian and Chao "GoodRifle" Xue, who has been relieved of his post due his lack of motivation.
TyLoo will boast the following quintet in 2011:
BingYuan "tb" Li
Xi "karl" Wang
XueFeng "xf" Lai
Bin "Savage" Liu
Yangbo "P1rate" Dai
The future of the other players who were part of TyLoo.raw is now in doubt, but with the IEM5 Asian Championship Finals just two months away, it is believed they will link up with other projects. The following players are currently without a team:
Jiang "Virgo" Qian
Biaohong "rita" Huan
Wang "prom1se" Nan
Xue "xiaoe" Ye
