ANNOUNCEMENT:— TYLOO (@tyloogaming) June 6, 2019
Today we are excited to welcome ex-VICI Gaming member Wing Hei "Freeman" Cheung as well as Zhenghao "DANK1NG" Lv, formerly of BTRG.IMBA to our CSGO roster. #tyloowin #???? pic.twitter.com/qve7pC30ri
Though Tyloo has still not announced any departures from their current line-up, we definitely might see a few in the weeks leading up to the ESL Pro League Season 9 - Finals taking place in Montpellier, France.
The change was due to Tyloo's recent performances which involved a last-place finish at the DreamHack Masters Dallas 2019. The team since reaching the 20th position on the HLTV rank list in February has slipped down to the 36th position.
The youngster hailing from Hong Kong, Freeman, had been rumoured for a long time to join the ranks of Tyloo. The move is great for the talented rifler who has been doing exceptionally well, leading ViCi in multiple instances out of a tough situation.

As for Danking, the 19-year-old had been previously playing for BTRG.IMBA and is a name that has been gaining popularity in the local region. He holds an impressive overall rating of a 1.25 according to HLTV and can be groomed into a strong player for the Chinese side. He is bound to do well under the guidance of players like BnTeT and xccurate.

With this, the current Tyloo roster features seven active players in its line-up. Let’s see how the team does in the coming event especially at the Pro League Finals. This will not only be a test for Tyloo but for the players as well.
The current line-up is as follows,

YuLun ‘Summer’ Cai
YuanZhang ‘AttackeR’ Sheng
Hansel ‘BnTeT’ Ferdinand
Kevin ‘xccurate’ Susanto
WingHei ‘Freeman’ Cheung
