TyLoo miss IEM5 World Ch'ship

IEM5 World Championship will be without the Chinese representative TyLoo as Likan "KingZ" Luo did not manage to obtain a new passport in time.

Five days ago news broke out that the Chinese team would most likely miss the season final for the fifth edition of the Intel Extreme Masters, due to Likan "KingZ" Luos' expired passport, combined with Chinese New Year and the process of obtaining a new passport and a visa.

cnFrag.com today confirmed that TyLoo has decided to call off their participation as a result of Luo not getting his hands on an updated passport in time. Luo would have received his new passport on February 18, which did not leave sufficient time for the Chinese team to secure him a visa, as ESL's letter of invitation was issued for his old passport.


No IEM5 World Championship after all for TyLoo

In a statement to cnFrag.com, TyLoo also mention that they had already requested information about the qualifying process for Chinese teams in December, during which period ESL were not able to give a straight answer (reportedly due to Christmas). When ESL announced the qualifier information on January 5, TyLoo were on vacation.

With TyLoo defectively out of the picture, ninth-place finishers from the European Championship Finals, French-based Electronic Sahara is the team set to replace them.


Electronic Sahara set to replace TyLoo in Group A

The Electronic Sports League has currently not released any sort of confirmation on the matter, but should eSahara be confirmed for Hannover in the first week of March, then the team will compete in Group A together with mTw, Frag eXecutors, compLexity, Meet Your Makers and TCM-Gaming.

ahh ;(

Big pro clubs such as sk,mtw won't make that sort of fuck'in silly mistake,so it's a long way for Chinese cyber club to go although we have a tremendous amount of cs players.
