Day 3 of the DreamLeague Season 13: Leipzig Major kicked off with a lower bracket elimination match between two Southeast Asian squads, TNC Predator and Fnatic.
With the series tied 1-1, TNC decided to put their tournament lives on the line with a Huskar pick for Armel “Armel” Tabios. Meanwhile, Fnatic thought they could win the game with an Anti-Mage on Nuengnara “23savage” Teeramahanon.
After a rocky start where Armel died to Roshan after missing his Armlet toggle while Damien “kpii” failed to take away aggro, TNC’s lineup started to synergize with Armel’s Huskar as the centerpiece. They were able to win a team fight even after Fnatic burst down their Outworld Devourer.
After a key pickoff on 23savage’s Anti-Mage, TNC ran into the Dire base and took down two sets of Barracks. Fnatic tried their best to take down Armel by Skewering him away from his team, but he was way too tanky.

23savage was caught by Kim “Gabbi” Villafuerte and Timothy “Tims” Randrup, which caused TNC to run straight into the Dire base and finish the game.
With their 2-1 series win, TNC advance to the third round of the lower bracket where they’re set to face Team Liquid in another elimination match.
Meanwhile, Fnatic end their Leipzig Major campaign in 9th-12th place with US$25,000 and 150 DPC points.
