TYLOO have announced the signing of Hansel “BnTeT” Ferdinand from Recca eSports.

The Indonesian super-star will replace YuanZhang “AttackeR” Sheng, who has been transferred to newly formed org, Flash Gaming.

With an average HLTV Rating of 1.40, Hansel “BnTeT” Ferdinand is considered the best player in his country, and some would argue the Asian region.

According to TYLOO, BnTeT will still be allowed to play for Recca in on-going leagues such as the APAC ESEA Open, BEYONDGODLIKE Pro League and ZEN eSports League with the latter giving Recca a chance to make LAN finals in Sydney, Australia.

In a statement to hltv.org BnTeT said:

“I am delighted that TYLOO contacted me to join their team, I support the idea of trying new challenges, such as joining an international team. For me, TYLOO are one of the most successful esports organisations in Asia. I hope I can prove my worth in TYLOO and help them to reach new achievements and achieve bigger things.”

TYLOO have had a rough start to the year, but with this change, let’s hope they have found what they are looking for. Time will tell whether this dynamic move will create results, as language barriers between the Indonesian and Chinese players may be an issue. It does bode well for the Asian scene, however, showing encouraging signs of cooperation between organizations in different sub-regions, and countries.

Their first appearance with the new roster will be at the China Cup happening in Shijiazhuang, China from March 17–19, where six teams, including Singaporean team dream[S]scape (that was recently acquired by Chinese organization B.O.O.T) & fnatic Academy, will be present.
