The first round of the Manila Major SEA Open Qualifiers has come to an end. TnC Pro Gaming landed the first Manila Major SEA Regional Qualifiers available spot, after defeating Gse7en, 2:0, in the finals. The second round of Open Qualifiers starts tomorrow, May 1, at 14:00 SGT.

TnC Pro Gaming convincingly wiped out Gse7en from Myanmar, 2:0, in the finals of the Manila Major SEA Open Qualifiers #1.
TnC Pro Gaming – the first team to grab a spot in the Manila Major SEA Regional Qualifiers – registered for the open qualifiers when they became ineligible for a direct invite into the Regional Qualifiers for SEA. The Filipino team had brought on board Carlo “Kuku” Palad after the rosters became locked for the new season. Kuku was recruited on April 13th to fill in the shoes of Gio “WinterGSmallSon” de Ocampo who is now inactive due to health reasons.
TnC will go up against Mineski, Rave, Orange Taring, WarriorsGaming.Unity, Acion Arena, Signature.Trust, Execration, The Mongolz and one other team still to be determined, in the Manila Major SEA Regional Qualifiers, scheduled to take place between May 3rd-6th.
