TNC Predator vs J.Storm – MDL ChengDu Major 2019
Round 2 of the winner’s bracket match will feature representative from North American J.Storm and the SEA team TNC Predator!
MDL Chengdu Major 2019 is stepping into the semi-finals, TNC looks like the tournament favorites as their dominating performance throughout the event so far have been nothing but out standing!
Team TNC Predator
Fear have always been a well respected dota2 captain, playing a crucial role on EG’s TI5 championship run. Besides the captain Fear, position 1 player Moo is also TI6 finalist. The experience of these two former TI champion and finalist might help J.Storm on their quest for defeating TNC.
However, TNC is still the heavy favorites as Gabbi, Armel and Tims are familiar faces of TNC. In addition to the recent rooster shuffle sees the arrival of Kppi and March, Kppi was one of the players on the team Newbee when they reach the TI 7 Final. The player/coach March was voted the MVP on TNC’s recent crowning run on ESL One Hamburg. And even more excitement added as March was previously the captain of J.Strom, making this game extra interesting as there might be some kind of revenge story going on.
We evaluate their performance at the group stages, J.Storm managed to pulled out a fantastic and undeserving game 1 lost against arguably one of the tournament favorites IG, the match was a fantastic 63 minute thriller and the performance was worth mentioning. The match after that however, was very one sided, probably attributable to the mentality fatigue after such a game 1.
Their match against Team Liquid on the Upper Bracket round 1 was quite convincing, most notably nine’s TA, which wrecks the lane and win them the game, overall a decent team with solid performance.
TNC recently won ESL One Hamburg and their matches in the final against Gambits E-sports are extremely entertaining to say the least! TNC was able to take the momentum of winning and bring it to the group stage, where they obliterated Team Unknown and won their match against Team Ehome. Their upper bracket first round match against Team Alliance, was also done in convincing fashion, even though they drooped a 70 minutes game 1 against Alliance, the team is strong enough mentally to win 2 convincing games afterwards.
Overall, TNC’s recent performance winning ESL One Hamburg, dominating display during the group stages and a fantastic display of mentality gave them the edge when recent performance are concern.
