Career

TNC Pro Team

‘Sam_H’ joined TNC Pro Team in early 2015. The team achieved very little that year as they failed to qualify for almost every top tier event. Despite this, they often placed quite highly at smaller events, such as those based out of Southeast Asia region. Towards the end of the year, they managed to qualify for World Cyber Arena, where they placed 5th/8th. This result was highly impressive as they had struggled to achieve any strong results throughout the year and suddenly managed to place in the top half of all teams at a top tier event.

In 2016, the team continued to mostly play in qualifiers and smaller events. Unfortunately, they failed to qualify for any top tier events. They also performed very inconsistently at smaller events, occasionally placing highly but usually struggling. However, they managed to dominate The International 2016 Southeast Asian Qualifiers and earned an invite to the main event, where they placed 7th/8th. The team was once again the underdogs a top tier event, as they had struggled to achieve any good results earlier in the year, but managed to finish the event in the top half of all teams.

The team’s performance then dipped until early 2017 when they won World Electronic Sports Games. Following this, they entered the qualifiers for The Kiev Major and Dota 2 Asia Championships, the latter of which they successfully qualified for. Unfortunately, they disappointingly placed joint last. They earned an invite to The International through the Southeast Asia Qualifiers. Unfortunately, they only placed 9th/12th this year. In the months that followed The International the team performed very well. They placed highly at every qualifier they participated in. In 2018, they attended many of the top tier events they had qualified for and generally performed very well. They had a disappointingly early exit from ESL One Genting, placing only 9th/12th but following this, they placed 5th/8th at The Bucharest Major and 4th at Dota 2 Asia Championships.
