Well, this was a rude awakening for TNC Predator fans. The MDL: Chengdu Major 2020 Champions are in danger of not making it to the 3rd Major of the season after a poor showing on Day 3 of the ESL One: LA 2020 Major SEA Qualifiers.

The team had a dismal performance on Day 1, tieing both their matches 1-1 and ending the day with a 2-2 record, which sees them finish the day in 3rd place.

TNC Predator continued to suffer from the same issues that have been plaguing them since the Outlanders Patch dropped. They are yet to figure out a proper playstyle and a strategy. It is clear that the team needs an experienced coach to help them with their drafts and strategy.

However, it should be noted that TNC Predator were in a similar position in the last qualifiers as well. They managed to turn it around on Day 2, winning 5 in a row to make it to the Major playoffs.

The team will need to win both their matches on tomorrow against Reality Rift and Team Adroit to stand a chance to move on to the Major playoffs. Currently, Mushi’s IO Dota are on top of the table with 3 points, with one series to go to close out the day.
