WingHei "Freeman" Cheung has replaced Kevin "xccurate" Susanto on TYLOO's Counter-Strike: Global Offensive starting lineup. The organization added Zhenghao "Danking" Lv and Freeman earlier this month, but it wasn't known when a change would be made.
The team had placed Freeman as a coach/backup player in hopes to use him in the Major qualifying process, but HLTV reports that StarLadder has ruled him out of competition as the roster is locked and will not be allowed to play unless for legitimate reasons like health or visa issues.
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 #加油天禄 pic.twitter.com/qve7pC30ri
With that knowledge, the roster move is a bit more interesting as the team is willing to use Freeman despite the risk of practicing with a player that can't play during Major qualifying.
You'll first see Freeman in action during ESL Pro League Season 9 Finals. TYLOO's first match will be on June 18 against FaZe Clan.
