Tyloo has taken the services of LiKan “KingZ” Luo as their coach for IEM Beijing 2019 which is scheduled to start tomorrow onwards. The Chinese veteran has a long history of being associated with the Chinese Counter-Strike scene having started his career in 2007 with 1.6, going inactive in September from Aster’s line-up.
The 33-year-old was a part of the wNv roster from 2007-09, he had also been a part of Tyloo for a period of four years, with his last match being played with Team Aster.
Tyloo is in dire need of help with their recent outings bearing very poor results, as they have started struggling in regional qualifiers as well. They surely don’t want to lose the title of being the best from Asia, for which they have hired a new coach.
The Chinese team has been without a coach for six months now with Ivan “Johnta” Shevtsov being the last person to have coached them. His time with the organization was quite short, lasting for a period of just four months.
KingZ is quite experienced and will definitely be able to help the team. All eyes will be on Tyloo as they go up against some of the best teams of the world in their own backyard. Let’s see if they are able to make a deep run in the tournament or settle for a bottom finish similar to their last two outings at international LAN’s.
The Chinese line-up for IEM Beijing 2019 is as follows,
HaoWen "somebody" Xu
YuLun "Summer" Cai
Hansel "BnTeT" Ferdinand
WingHei "Freeman" Cheung
YuanZhang "Attacker" Sheng
LiKan "ryk" Luo [Temporary Coach]
