The TNC Pro Team is among the many internationally recognized teams vying for supremacy at the upcoming Galaxy Battles II: Emerging Worlds this January 19-21.
The team was created in early 2015 by the TNC Cyber Cafe to develop a group that could compete in both local and international tournaments. A tournament was scheduled with the goal of finding top players that would eventually comprise the TNC Pro Team’s DoTA 2 Squad.
“In the beginning, for a country located in Southeast Asia, funding and sponsorship was a challenge for us,” shares Team Manager, Jim Paulo Sy. “We had to do everything in our power to perform and show our worth to different brands to open the gates for sponsorship. It was also hard to have a stable roster back then.”
Driven by hard work and motivated by success, the TNC Pro Team grew to become one of the most popular teams in the world of competitive DoTA. Over the course of 2017 alone, the TNC Pro Team generated an estimated USD 1,517,752.92 in prize pool money.
The TNC Pro Team will be competing in the upcoming Galaxy Battles II: Emerging Worlds. While the event has garnered some controversy, the team is supportive of Fallout Gaming’s efforts to legitimize esports in Southeast Asia. For the team, it provides them with another chance to compete before a hometown audience.
“For us, it’s an honor to play for the Filipinos,” adds Sy. “Despite not being a Major, it’s always been a wish to play in front of a Filipino crowd. It’s the best crowd ever!”
