TNC Predator had one of the best performances from the group stages of the Epicenter Major. They beat OG in the opening matches, and then defeated Ninjas in Pyjamas during the winner’s match. Here is how it all played out.
With the series tied 1 – 1, TNC adjusted their play style in a major way. Instead of going for their own set of barracks after picking off enemy heroes, they decided to er on the side of caution. They picked the perfect moments to engage and beat OG in a battle of attrition.
The team also had a similar mindset against NiP during the winner’s match. Instead of expending their key hero spells, they waited for the right moment where they could do the most damage and win the team fight.
Even when falling back during engagements, TNC made the right moves to ensure they kept the advantage.
With a significant 22,000 gold and hero advantage, TNC dove down the Dire base and eliminated enemy heroes one by one until NiP decided to call it quits.
