Chinese CS:GO giant TYLOO has announced that Serbian coach Nestor “LETN1” Tanić will take over the team.
The announcement comes after TYLOO’s shock failure to qualify for PGL Major Antwerp after finishing third in the Asia RMR tournament, behind Mongolian club IHC Esports and Australian team Renegades.
This led to a streak of four consecutive Major appearances from TYLOO, who has appeared at every Major since the 2018 FACEIT event in London – also the only time the Chinese team has managed to get through Stage 1.
LETN1 comes into the game with little coaching experience, having previously only managed Team Finest and SC e-Sports for a short time. But he spent years working his way through the ranks as a player, eventually making it to the Major in 2019 with CR4ZY, his last team.
In 2021 he served as manager and analyst for EXTREMUM where he was the core of the former 100 Thieves list. In this team, he worked alongside Indonesian star Hansel “BnTet” Ferdinand, who returned to TYLOO in February.
“This is a big challenge for me and I want to repeat the success I’ve had as a player,” LETN1 told Dexerto. “We set the bar very high and are ready to achieve some good results in the future and achieve our common goals!”
LETN1 joined the team on May 4th at the Kinguin Esports Performance Center in Warsaw, Poland. According to him, the players will spend a long time in Europe, returning to China only for important tournaments.
The Serb is the third foreign coach to take over TYLOO, after Brazilian Luis “Peacemaker” Tadeu and Ukrainian Yvan “Johnta” Shevtsov. With his appointment, the Chinese team hopes to once again reach the highest levels of the game and establish themselves as the dominant force in Asia.
“I will bring a European style to the team,” said LETN1.
