- TNC Predator qualifies for the BTS Pro Series Season 2: Southeast Asia playoffs after two 2-0 victories over Cignal Ultra and Execration.
- Neon Esports is the only team who have secured their place in the upper brackets.
- Two teams out of Execration, Cignal Ultra and Reality Rift will be eliminated.
It would be an understatement to say that TNC Predator is having a disastrous run, of late. The team often touted as one of the top two teams in the region alongside Fnatic has been left behind as their rivals continue to rake up the championships. Teams like Geek Fam, Adroit and BOOM Esports who used to be tier 2 teams, have surpassed them and left them in the dust.
After their Grand Finals appearance against Fnatic in the BTS Pro Series: Southeast Asia, the team had only won one series out of their last ten, and had a 5-16 win-loss record. They were heading towards elimination in the group stages of the BTS Pro Series 2: Southeast Asia before today.
TNC Predator faced the two bottom-placed teams in the group stage table (Execration and Cignal Ultra), today.
TNC Predator 2 - 0 Cignal Ultra
TNC Predator 2 - 0 Execrations
With these two victories, TNC Predator is safe from elimination in the Group Stages.

However, they will have to play through the lower brackets in the playoffs. At the moment, only Neon Esports has booked a place in the upper bracket playoffs.
