The TNC organization released a teaser video announcing the formation of a second Dota team which by the looks of it will be led by Theeban ‘1437’ Siva.
1437 previously played for the TNC squad for about 8 months or so and was their IGL and drafter till until recently when he was dropped for Armel. 1437 guided TNC to a second place finish at the MDL Macau Minor and to a first place finish at China Top 2017 LAN. However with the competition getting tougher and tougher in SEA, the TNC org decided to go with an all Filipino line up, favouring Armel for 1437.
The new squad which has been named TNC Tiger will be led by 1437 while the rest of the squad has not been announced yet. It’s likely that the team operates from the SEA region however no conformation has been made so far.
Replying to a post about the topic on /r/dota2, 1437 said :
Thank you so much guys for the support. It's been a rough month especially with how things ended at TNC phoenix and putting together this new team but I'm really looking forward to the brighter future. My dedication and passion to this game has never been stronger and it's all because you guys have been absolutely amazing supporters and keep me going. There are still many goals I wish to achieve and prove in Dota 2. So here's to a new beginning.
Thank you all again.
He also mentioned that the roster will be announced on the TNC Tigers page in the coming days and that the squad is an SEA based international team.
This will certainly add to the growing list of top tier teams in the SEA region, making the competition even more fierce.
