On day two of ESL One Hamburg’s group stage, TNC Predator faced off against Gambit Esports in a best-of-two match.
TNC were in control for the majority of the match but at the 28-minute mark, Gambit caught TNC’s smoke gank attempt and Artiom “fng” Barshack helped set up a three-man Chronoshpere-Meteor combo for Kiyaylbek Tayirov and Danil “gpk” Skutin.
As a result, Gambit was able to eliminate four of TNC’s heroes except for Kim “Gabbi” Villafuerte, who decided he didn’t really need the rest of his teammates to take on the enemy team.
With an Aghanim’s Scepter powered up Morphling, Gabbi Morphed into his allied Earthshaker and proceeded to hunt down Gambit’s heroes one by one.
TNC currently sits at the top of its group at ESL One Hamburg with an 8-0 record, which includes victories over highly ranked teams including Team Liquid, Ninjas in Pyjamas, and Quincy Crew.
