Arguably the best Dota 2 team in the Philippines, TNC Predator have won the SEA qualifiers of ESL One: Mumbai 2019 and will be competing in the LAN event. The Filipino powerhouse was dominant throughout their run in the SEA Qualifiers, not dropping a single series as they convincingly triumpher over the rest of the competition to secure their berth.
TNC Predator have been struggling for quite some while, after a promising start to the season with a Top 6 finish in the Kuala Lumpur Major. Unfortunately, after Kuku made some inappropriate comments which got him banned from playing the Chongqing Major and the WESG 2018: World Finals, their performances dipped. They failed to qualify for the Dreamleague: Season 11 Major and the StarLadder ImbaTV Dota 2 Minor.
The team has finally found a bit of success to boost their confidence and momentum, beating out PG.Barrax, Genuine Gaming and 496 Gaming to qualify for the LAN tournament.
TNC Predator will now be competing in ESL One: Mumbai 2019 alongside 4 teams including NiP, Alliance , Gambit Esports, and Complexity who have been directly invited to the event, as well as, Keen Gaming who qualified for this event through the Chinese Qualifiers. Additionally, 3 more teams will also be directly invited to the tournament.
They will be joined by the winners of the European, North American, and Indian Qualifiers.
