TNC Pro Team is looking to revamp its roster for the next season of the MPL PH
One of the pioneers of the Mobile Legends esports scene and head coach of TNC Pro Team’s Mobile Legends division, Lift, departs from the team following its lackluster performance in the MPL PH Season 8. This was revealed through an official social media post on 13th Nov 2021 where the organization thanked the head coach for his contribution to the team and wished him luck on his next journey.
“Thank you Coach Lift for empowering our players during your time with TNC. Your invaluable lessons will always remain with us,” captioned TNC Pro Team.
Light was a former member of the Mobile Legends team, Dream High Gaming. The team had a very solid lineup composed of Johnmar "OhMyV33nus" Villaluna, Danerie James "Wise" Del Rosario, Allen Jedric "Baloyskie" Baloy, John Paul "H2wo" Salonga, and Gerald "Dlarskie" Trinchera. The members eventually went separate ways with Light joining Work Auster Force as the head coach before it rebranded to TNC Pro Team.
His new team had an excellent run during the Juicy Legends 2021 Q3, claiming the championship title and grabbed everyone’s attention as fans look forward to their dominant run in the MPL PH Season 8. However, the team ended up with subpar performance and eventually settled at 8th place.
Currently, the team is looking to revamp its Mobile Legends roster through open tryouts which recently closed.
It will be interesting to see if TNC Pro Team’s upcoming revamped Mobile Legends team roster redeems itself in the MPL PH Season 9.
