413’s unusual prep for ONIC pays dividends for Benthings-led TNC

After three heart-breaking weeks, TNC finally entered the win column on Friday via a 2-0 upset over the top-ranked ONIC PH.

Speaking in front of reporters for the first time, roamer Ben “Benthings” Maglaque said that the team’s decision to retain its six-man lineup from Season Nine played a role in TNC’s struggles in Season 10.

“Siguro po may effect din po yung ‘di kami nagpalit ng roster kasi yung idea namin sa laro, parang yung Season Nine pa rin then may mga patch na naganap,” said Benthings, who finished second in MVP voting in the previous season.

“Kumbaga yung mindset namin iisa lang, wala kaming nakuhang idea sa iba.”

With that, TNC had to be creative and immediately went back to basics in order to get over the hump.

Benthings shared that TNC head coach Paulo “413” Sy instructed them to play ranked games separately and team up with other players and pub stars. That, according to Benthings, is what turned things around for them heading into the match against the league leaders.MPL-PH-10-TNC-def-ONIC-Benthings-2 413's unusual prep for ONIC pays dividends for Benthings-led TNC ESports Mobile Legends MPL-PH News  - philippine sports news

“Bale ang ginawa namin, dumiskarte kami sa RG. Sumasama kami sa iba na mga pro o kaya mga malalakas din sa ranked games. Kumukuha po kami ng idea sa kanila then yun din po yung pinagsasamasama namin,” shared Benthings.

The Season Nine breakout star said that this win will definitely be a huge boost for the entire team’s confidence, especially against M3 World Champion Blacklist International tomorrow.

“Sobrang saya po kasi mas nabuhayan po yung loob saka yung confidence namin.”
