The Chinese outfit, TYLOO are shaking up their lineup in hopes of a fresh start.
TYLOO, a juggernaut in Asian CSGO, have recently released Hansel “BnTeT” Ferdinand and benched YuanZhang “Attacker” Sheng and replaced them in the active roster with Junsheng “aristo” Jin and WingHei “Freeman” Cheung.
TYLOO make changes
The move comes about a month after the fallen giants failed to qualify for the Asian RMR for the Rio Major, making it the first time they will be absent at such an event in about 6 years.
Today we welcome @freemanKito and "aristo" to our CSGO roster. At the same time, Attacker will be benched, @BnTeTCSGO officially leaves TYLOO and as a free agent. Thanks for everything he did for TYLOO and wish all the best in the future to our forever iron man.#CSGO #TYLOO pic.twitter.com/SfwE8G4JTL

BnTeT rejoined the Chinese giants earlier this year after short runs with Gen.G Esports and EXTREMUM. However, the Indonesian rifler’s impact wasn’t adequate this time around, leading to his expulsion from the team. Attacker, on the other hand, will remain on the bench until he is called upon or hands in a transfer request.
Freeman is no stranger to TYLOO, having spent a relatively unimpressive 10 months or so with the team between June 2019 and April 2020. He was subsequently inactive for a while before joining a number of smaller teams. Now, the 23-year-old is getting a second shot at arguably China’s biggest CSGO team.
Meanwhile, aristo is a bit of a surprise addition as the youngster has very little top-level experience. At 18 years of age, he hasn’t exactly been very impressive in those aforementioned games, with an average HLTV rating of just 1.06 across a mere 22 maps. However, he has played alongside Freeman while on another Chinese team NSN.
The lineup will play their first international matches at the BLAST Premier Fall Showdown, which starts on October 19. TYLOO confirmed a slot at the event after winning the 5E Arena Asia Cup 2022.
