History
Created:

Xiao is a top team from AsiaFortress, and is currently considered the strongest team in Asia.

Founded in AsiaFortress Cup 10, it had consisted of the core of both TURBO9000 and The Homely Hobos from Season 9, creating what would become the strongest team in Asia at the time. After a very dominating performance in Season 10 and winning the Grand Finals against Crescendo, cementing their first ever victory together, they continued their winning streak and established what is known as the Xiao dynasty for many seasons to come. Their dominance of Asian TF2 rivaled that of froyotech's in North America and the late Se7en's in Europe. In AsiaFortress LAN 2018, Xiao was knocked down to the Lower Bracket Finals for the very first time in its history when facing against rivals The Chess Foundation, followed by a Grand Final loss to the same team, ultimately ending their winning streak that lasted for several seasons.

Xiao had experienced many different roster changes throughout the seasons, but their most notable change was during PURE League Season 2 when the late Beyond The Summit TF2 event was announced. Legendary player teejay and former Scout main banana who were both from SVIFT AS joined the roster in preparation for the event. The team also managed to pick up 2 top Australian players from MMGP in the form of Demoman enrith and Medic lock. This version of the roster was widely regarded to be the best iteration of Xiao across its previous rosters, convincingly dominating the highest division while only dropping 2 rounds the entire season. This would have also been the very first time an Asian team is represented at an international TF2 event.
