TNC parts ways with Canadian player, Theeban ‘1437’ Siva as the team makes room for a full Filipino lineup.
On the heels of an early exit from the ESL One Genting Minor, TnC is making some changes in their roster before the final lineup needs to be locked into place by February 5th.
Theeban ‘1437’ Siva joined TNC in the post Kiev Major Shuffle. Only three days later the new roster traveled to China to play their first LAN event together where they took an impressive second place and followed it up three weeks later with a third place podium finish at Galaxy Battles in China.
The team continued to work hard and make adjustments in their play, landing a first place finish after an impressive run in The International 7 SEA qualifiers. The team finished TI7 group stage in fourth place sliding into the top seeding in the upper brackets of the main event and ultimately assumed a 9-12th place finish.
Despite the disappointing placement, the team announced they would not make any roster changes for the following season, standing behind the hard work and potential of their team. The 2017-2018 Pro Circuit season was a mixed bag for the Philippines based team with a slew of Top 3 finishes in both qualifiers and bigger LAN events such as China Top 2017 and Manila Invitational show match. They wound up narrowly missing most of Major/Minor events, falling short to rivals Mineski or Fnatic. The team did qualify for MDL Macau, taking an impressive 2nd place finish to gain 90 qualifying points but just yesterday in ESL One Genting the team ended early with 9-12th place finish.
