After our incredible run at the International 2016, Marc Polo “Raven” Fausto left our team in pursuit of new experiences and growth for his career, but today we’re more than happy to announce his return. Playing under the Carry role for our team, “Raven” will replace “Ryo” in the role. As for the fifth and final member of our team, we’re still scouting local players to fit the role.

Last week, on November 21st, TNC parted ways with two of their players, Mark “Cast” Pilar and Linuel “Teehee” Abanto. The organization came to this decision “because of the simple fact that the team didn’t fit well together”.
As stated by the organization, Carlo “Kuku” Palad, Sam “SamH” Hidalgo and Ryo “Ryoyr” Hasegawa would remain on the team for the upcoming season.
Earlier this year, TNC stormed through The International 6 open qualifiers all the way up to Top 8 in thrilling fashion. Despite the indisputable achievement, the team still fell victim to roster changes during the post-TI shuffle.
Sam “Sam_H” Enojosa Hidalgo and Carlo “Kuku” Palad were the only two members left standing, back in September.
Raven, eyyou and DeMoN left TNC for Fnatic, on September 7th, only to be released three months later, after the team’s disappointing track record this season and failure to qualify for the Boston Major.
TNC current roster:
Marc Polo “Raven” Luis Fausto
Carlo “Kuku” Palad
Samson Solomon “SamH” Hidalgo
Ryo “ryOyr” Hasegawa
