The recent roster woes for China’s premier Counter-Strike: Global Offensive team appear to finally be over.
Cai “fancy1” Lun Yu has officially declared himself a free agent nearly two months after he was suspended from competing with TyLoo, his team of TK years. According to a post on TyLoo’s Weibo, the two parties are now on good terms after what the team described as an “unhappy incident” between Zhejiang Technology Limited and Cai Yulun. Since then, “both parties [have] come to a formal settlement,” the statement read. “Therefore, this issues has been peacefully resolved.”
The “unhappy incident” in question? Fancy1 and teammates YuanZhang “AttackeR” Sheng, Haowen “somebody” Xu, and former TyLoo coach QiFang “Karsa” Su were allegedly having conversations with other organizations in China while still being under contract with TyLoo.
TyLoo’s response to the situation was anything but receptive; Karsa was promptly fired. Fancy1 and AttackeR were suspended from competing with the team, and somebody was subject to a temporary suspension, but was let back into the active roster shortly afterwards. AttackeR was also seen competing with TyLoo at DreamHack Masters Las Vegas between Feb. 15 to 19.
Fancy1 was still contracted to TyLoo until yesterday, however, hindering him from joining another organization. But as one of, if not the, best player in China, it’s safe to assume that he won’t be team-less for long.
