TNC Predator pulled off arguably the best comeback of the WePlay AniMajor so far in game two of its series against Team Aster in the lower bracket. Being already one game down, TNC was scrambling to find any momentum in the early stages of the second game. However, they slowed down the pace of the game with some timely pickoffs and split pushing but then the team displayed a clinic of top-notch teamfight execution to massively outplay Aster. Dota 2 personalities, such as Sheever and Fogged, shared their thoughts about this crazy spectacle on Twitter as, like many others, they were blown away by the Flipino squad's incredible comeback.

Dota 2 talent responds to TNC Predator’s comeback against Team Aster

TNC Predator found itself on the verge of elimination from the WePlay AniMajor in game two against Team Aster when it mounted one of the best comebacks of the tournament. Gabbi picked up an Aghanim’s Scepter on his safe lane Templar Assassin as he kept split pushing the map. Armel also assisted his safe laner in this task with a Boots of Travel on mid Batrider. At times, they also got some pickoffs. As the game progressed, TNC’s teamfight execution improved by leaps and bounds as it surprisingly went on to win a game that looked like a stomp in the early stages, in 56 minutes.

Dota 2 personalities and teams have expressed their feelings on the outcome of this match.

Gareth "Gareth" Bateson, who was casting the game, said that he had goosebumps and was “welling up with tears” after the game concluded.
