TNC Pro Team Releases KingSalman From Its MLBB Roster
TNC Pro Team announced the release of its team’s jungler Salman "KingSalman" Macarambon from its Mobile Legends: Bang Bang (MLBB) roster. The pro player debuted in the previous season as a substitute player. TNC Pro Team shocked fans with its impressive performance back in Season 9 of the Mobile Legends Professional League (MPL) Philippines (PH). However, the team was not able to keep its momentum going in Season 10 and finished in 8th place in the regular season. KingSalman had previously announced that he was looking for a new team even before TNC Pro Team's officially announcement of his departure from the squad.
KingSalman departs from TNC Pro Team
TNC Pro Team’s downfall in the MPL PH Season 10 was one of the most surprising moments of the league season. It finished in third place in Season 9, but the team went on a very disappointing run in Season 10 with only two wins and 12 losses in total.
Following its upsetting run, KingSalman started putting a “LFT” (Looking for Team) caption . On 18th November TNC Pro Team confirmed that the star jungler has been released from the team’s MLBB roster.
“We wish you all the best in your next journey! Fly high and make us proud! Your Phoenix fam will always be here to support you. Always rise, man!” captioned TNC Pro Team.
KingSalman did not come much into the spotlight since his debut. The team heavily favored Shemaiah "SDzyz" Chu’s playstyle which spearheaded the team into securing a third-place finish in Season 9. However, the same could not be accomplished in Season 10 despite retaining the same roster.
The only major roster change the team had was the release of its coach Vrendon "Vren" Lin. At the time, the coach was confined to a wheelchair due to tuberculosis but was able to help the team with strategies and drafting. Vren was then acquired by the Indonesian team Bigetron Alpha and TNC Pro Team acquired coach 143 for Season 10.
It will be interesting to see which team acquires KingSalman for the upcoming MPL PH Season 11.
