TnC lost to Rex Regum (RRQ) – a well-known Indonesian team – in Round of 64 of the TI6 SEA Open Qualifiers.
The Filipino team has recently replaced John Linuel “Teehee” Abanto with North American veteran Jimmy “DeMoN” Ho. They were considered the region’s favorites, having a strong and active presence in the scene.
All is not lost for the newly revamped squad. With one day off to train hard tomorrow, the team can stage a comeback in the second round of TI6 SEA open qualifiers, starting on June 23rd. A win then would grant them the second spot for the TI6 SEA Regional Qualifiers.

TnC Gaming, a Dota 2 team from the Philippines, was founded in 2013. The team began to advance in qualifiers and regional events, making a name for themselves and trying to establish a foothold on the international scene.
On April 13th, TnC brought Carlo “Kuku” Palad on board to fill in the shoes of Gio “WinterGSmallSon” de Ocampo who is now inactive due to health reasons.
Then, in a surprising move, with only five days left before the TI6 open qualifiers, Jimmy “DeMoN” Ho changed his plans and TI6 route midway through. The North American veteran player joined TnC in SouthEast Asia, to compete in the TI6 SEA Open Qualifiers. Difference in goals between John Linuel “Teehee” Abanto and the team has been cited as the primary reason for the roster change.
