It looks like there is no stopping the TNC train. The SEA powerhouse has managed to secure a 2-1 victory against Alliance which sees them make their way into the next round of the upper brackets.
This is the second time, in two tournaments that TNC Predator have managed to beat Alliance in the Upper Brackets. The Filipino team have secured a Top 6 finish with this victory which entails them atleast 900 DPC points and $60,000 USD in prize money.
TNC Predator vs Alliance
Alliance started off the series with a bang, completely dominating TNC Predator right from the get-go to build up an overwhelming lead. The Europeans seemed to be winning ever single teamfight and secured multiple objectives to bolster their net-worth lead to a ridiculous 60k. However, TNC Predator showed great tenacity by holding on to their base against this. Eventually, Alliance managed to brute force their way against TNC’s defence and secured a 70 minute victory.
The Filipinos struck back with a fury in Games 2 and 3, with two outdrafts and two one-sided stomps to claim a 2-1 victory. Alliance looked stumped by the end of this marathon series.
TNC Predator will play the winner of the next match: J.Storm vs Team Liquid on November 20th for a place in the winner bracket finals.
