Mars Media Dota 2 League: Macau qualifiers were single elimination, so there was no room for error. TNC faced tough opponents in both WarriorsGaming.Unity and Fnatic but managed to beat them both 2-0. They favoured Carlo 'QQ / Kuku' Palad's Medusa (a hero currently on the rise) and support Doom, Omniknight and Earth Spirit. Even when faced with Abed 'Abed' Yusop's Meepo in Game 2 of their match against Fnatic, TNC didn't falter.
In the Grand Final match, Mineski struck first with a combination of midlane Tinker, carry Vengeful Spirit, offlane Tidehunter and support Tiny. They picked up Anucha 'Jabz / Kaneki' Jirawong Tiny again in Game 2 and Kam Boon 'NaNa / Timun' Seng's Tinker in Game 3, but TNC adjusted well and took the series win 2-1.
Samson E. 'Sam H' Hidalgo's support play stood out on three different heroes - Beastmaster, then Nightstalker and finally Nyx Assassin.
TNC will head to Macau Dec 8-10 to represent SEA at the Minor. Direct invites and the NA regional qualifier team are the only squads left to be determined in the eight-team event. For more details, you can always check out our coverage page.
