TNC rose from the ashes to snap its six-game losing streak via a tight 2-0 sweep against RSG PH in Mobile Legends: Bang Bang Professional League-Philippines Season Eight, Friday night.
With the win, TNC (3-7) pumped life to its playoffs campaign – improving its slate to 10 points to tie Omega Esports (2-7) at the seventh spot.
After bagging Game One, TNC had to gut out a record-setting, 30:39-minute Game Two victory on the back of Clarense “Kousei” Camilo’s Alice.
Though they loss two heroes in the process, TNC managed to secure the Luminous Lord entering the 30-minute mark while also taking down Christian “Iy4knu” Manaog’s Natan and Jonard “Demonkite” Caranto’s Hayabusa off an incredible play from Kousei – who bought two Blood Wings to survive after his Immortality and Winter Truncheon popped.
“Siguro nagkaroon lang po talaga kami ng problema, yung mga players naapektuhan pero masaya po kami kasi nakarecover na,” said Frediemar “3MarTzy” Serafico after the win.
TNC opened the series with improved wares with Daniel “Chuuu” Chu’s Ling putting on a show in the 16-11 victory.
RSG PH (7-5) is still tied with ECHO (5-7) at the third spot with 16 points each.
TNC will go up next against Bren Esports tomorrow, Saturday at 12:00 PM while RSG PH will make its comeback next week, Friday against Nexplay EVOS at 6:00 PM.
