Esports News – Chinese esports organization, TyLoo, is widely recognized as one of the pioneers of China’s Counter-Strike: Global Offensive competitive scene. The team only places second and first from all their previous Major competitions, nothing less. Just recently, they secured a slot in the FACEIT’s Major New Legends Stage after beating Team Spirit 2-0 in the New Challengers Stage. This is the first time a team from Asia reached Top 16 at a Major tournament.
On that premise, let’s take this opportunity to talk with TyLoo’s longest standing member and team leader Ke “CaptainMo” Liu and Asia’s “smoke criminal” player HaoWen “Somebody” Xu about the current standing and deepest secrets of TyLoo.
Major tournaments are some of the biggest CSGO competitions, and TyLoo has its fair share of experience in this domain. When asked about the difference of FACEIT’s Major from their previous matches, CaptainMO said: “A Major is not just a big tournament for us, it has been the main goal since we started playing CSGO. We always wanted to take that step forward. We always made it to the main qualifier, now the New Challenger Stage, but we couldn’t do the last step. This time we did it and we are really happy about it, we will just take it from here.”
The New Challengers Stage is the team’s biggest achievement yet, and since CaptainMO is one of the team’s oldest players, his perspective matters: “I’m just super happy because I finally made it, we finally made it. From now, we are just going to try our hardest and see if we can go further.”
TyLoo’s original roster is solely composed of Chinese players, but they recently branched out and added two Indonesian players to the team: Hansel “BnTeT” Ferdinand and Kevin “xccurate” Susanto. When asked about the current form of the team with the addition of new players from other countries, Somebody stated: “Compared to the old roster, we are playing more as a team. The whole approach to the game is more team-based, everything we do, we do as a team. But the downfall right now is the communication, it is pretty obvious. You can stay behind us when we are practicing or playing, there is chaos in the communication, a mix of three languages. Those are the pros and cons of this roster.”
CSGO recently launch the Perfect World game mode by default for all users in China. It’s features a balanced and optimized gameplay. At first, this had confused all amateur and professional players, but Tyloo managed to get the hang of it before competing for international tournaments. Here’s Somebody to share how did the release of the Perfect World version impact the Chinese community: “Since the launch of Perfect World in China, the player base increased significantly because people were actually not able to play matchmaking in CSGO, you needed to use a VPN or something like that. That is one thing, the other thing is that since then, we are having more and more international tournaments in China, either sponsored or organized by Perfect World. It is definitely a good thing, it is going to help us a lot, it is going to draw attention and more professional teams to China.”

When you first start out you’ll be tempted to try to bet as frequently as possible, don’t. Wait for matches with good odds where you or the predictors know the teams. Never force yourself to bet, bet on matches that you are confident in. You may go days or weeks without placing a bet, you’re not in a rush, wait for bets you are comfortable and confident in and profit should follow.
If there’s any uncertainty, don’t place a bet. Save your skins for another day. There will be plenty of other matches that you can bet on.
Betting is always risky, that’s unavoidable. But staying inside a ‘safe zone’ will help cover you off from some really silly bets. When starting out with a low inventory, large bets placed on matches with 80%+ odds aren’t going to return much in general (on lounge, even less due to the inconsistent returns) but you’re still risking a large amount of your inventory for very little.
Equally, odds below 30% sound very, very attractive with huge returns possible. But if you don’t know the teams or all the details, it’s very possible the team doesn’t stand any chance. If you think there might be a chance, reduce the size of the stake or consider an ICB.
Always bet with a percentage of your inventory. Think, what happens if you lose an ‘All in’ bet, do you stop betting for the rest of your life, or just get your wallet out and go again? You may think there’s no risk, however there is always risk. If you’re placing a high bet, stick to an absolute maximum of 20% of your betting inventory.
Always leave enough to bet another day.
If you’re feeling angry or frustrated, your judgement get’s very cloudy. You’ll make a stupid bet and lose. If you just lost a big bet or are on a losing streak, instead of trying to force a bet, you should take a step back, calm down and just take a break, come back refreshed with a fresh mindset.
Betting blind is a purely relying on luck, if the underdog odds are 30%, that definitely doesn’t mean the team has a 30% chance of winning. It just means 30% of the betting community chose that team. A late roster change could mean there’s zero chance for the team to win. Check in with our predictions to help give you some more background on the game.
Use the lounge odds tracker to predict the final odds as the start of the match get’s closer. If the odds are increasing/decreasing for the team you intend to bet on the return may not outweigh the risk anymore. A huge significant switch of odds at the last moment may mean that something shady is going on, mostly in very low tier games, or a sudden announcement, E.g standin may have occurred.
Bookies will put up their odds based on their own expectations, as the bets start coming in they'll tweak the odds to ensure it's still profitable for them. That early stage is key to getting an edge on the bookies.
As soon as you feel like you have to bet again to recoup loses, you’ll feel compelled to make bigger bets with bigger risks. This often starts an endless cycle driving your losses further and further. Instead, after a big loss, take a day off from betting (or a week if was really big). .Keep to the proper bet sizing based on the risk of the match no matter what. You are not in a race to win it back, just take it easy.
Do not blindly follow betting site odds and think that they are correct to the true odds. If a betting site has ‘Team A’ as a heavy favorite, it does not always mean that it’s an easy win for ‘Team A’.
SK beat Na’Vi… Na’Vi beat E-Frag. That means SK can beat E-Frag now, right? No.
There are many factors which contribute to the team winning a match, these factors such as player performance, map selection, strategy and tactics which may not apply to other teams.
