TNC Predator fans must be pinching themselves trying to wake up from this horrid dream. The MDL: Chengdu Major Champions have been eliminated from the qualifiers of the StarLadder ImbaTV Dota 2 Minor Season 3 after losing Singaporean favourites Reality Rift 2-1.
Hence TNC will not compete in the 3rd set of Minors/Majors.
TNC Predator vs Reality Rift
Game 1: The first game was a battle of the carries, Gabbi vs drew. Both players performed spectacularly putting up immense scores on their heroes. But in the end, drew emerged on top, landing a crucial Chronosphere to secure the win for Reality Rift.
Game 2: TNC Predator struck back hard and quick, punishing Reality Rift's greedy lineup with Aggressive play and claimed the victory with ease, evening the series.
Game 3: The 3rd and final game of the series saw Reality Rift outplay TNC at every turn and claim the victory with ease.
Reality Rift will now face Boom ID in the Grand Finals, where the winner will compete at the StarLadder ImbaTV Dota 2 Minor Season 3.
TNC Predator simply hasn't looked the same after the Outlanders patch hit and has become very mediocre over the last couple of months. Perhaps this is a blessing in disguise for them to regroup, recuperate and reinvent themselves for the rest of the DPC season and the International 10.
