The TNC Predators is an all Filipino squad that started in 2015. Shortly after their formation, they saw success in Southeast Asia finishing 5th in WCA 2015 and winning the WESG World Championship in 2016. Recently they have struggled, losing four of their last five matchups in May. Regardless of their current struggles, TNC is looking forward to the Dota 2 SEA league and hopes to wave the Filipino flag for the world to see at its conclusion.
