In the first game, TNC Pro Team proved formidable with a durable team composition. However, the team couldn’t position properly for a team fight due to bomb placements made by OhMyV33NUS’ Diggie, preventing any kind of ambush from happening. Without any option of surprising the Blacklist International, TNC Pro Team was forced to fight with a huge disadvantage, closing the game with a victory for the Code Breakers.
The second game saw the queen of roaming supports taking map control with the hero Lolita. With each surprise Noumenon Blast engage, TNC Pro Team was left scrambling around the map trying to escape. This allowed the Filipino Sniper Kiel “OHEB” Calvin Soriano to easily pick off enemies with his Wanwan and fishing the series with a 2-0 victory.
