Taking Home the Bacon
TNC made their mark at The Internationals 2016 when the Philippine-based team took out a heavy favorite in the tourney — OG. They’ve had strong showings ever since but it looks like 2019 is off to an awesome start with back-to-back victories in tournaments in the Asia Pacific region.
TNC Predator took back a trophy plus a hefty cash prize earlier this year as they battled it out in Bangkok for the Predator League APAC Finals. Impressive as that may be the team doubled up and showed their dominance once again in the recently concluded WESG Tournament in China where the team took home $500,000 or roughly Php 26 million pesos as the champs.
The members and their backers celebrated with members of the media last Sunday where they promised that they were just getting started. On that note, TNC also introduced two of their new pro teams that will compete in League of Legends and CS:GO.
Key executives from Acer Philippines were also on-hand to show their support for the DOTA 2 Champions and the newly announced teams to further the cause of eSports in the country; especially with it now being featured as a Medal Sport in the Southeast Asian Games 2019.
Congratulations to the TNC Predator DOTA 2 Pro Team!
