Fnatic Sweep TNC 3-0 to Win BTS Pro Series SEA

11:10 AM April 27, 2020

Fnatic’s dominance in the group stage made them favorites early into the tournament and they crossed the finish line with ease after cruising to a 3-0 win over TNC in the grand finals.

Fnatic had TNC’s number all tournament long, beating them 2-1 in the group stages and 2-0 in the upper bracket finals. There would be no “third time’s the charm” magic for TNC this time around.


Game 1 saw Fnatic wrap up the game after 22 minutes with Nuengnara “23savage” Teeramahanon’s Alchemist finishing the game with more than twice as much networth as any other hero.

TNC would take the advantage early into the second game with a powerful core Silencer and Morphling duo but the Thai wunderkind’s Phantom Assassin would eventually obliterate them later in the game to give Fnatic the commanding 2-0 series lead.

There would be no way back in the third game for TNC as they fell 10k networth behind after just ten minutes and were forced to surrender to Fnatic’s fast-paced Lycan-centered lineup after just half an hour.

Having won the last three tournaments they participated in, Fnatic have undoubtedly established themselves as the top team in one of the most competitive regions in Dota 2. They won Beyond the Summit’s last LAN competition, Dota Summit 12, and the dominated Southeast Asia in ESL One Los Angeles Online.

Fnatic offlaner Daryl Koh “iceiceice” Pei Xiang has credited playing with “very low ping” as one of the reasons for their success in the tournament. He also acknowledged the tenacity of some players to continue playing at a high level despite the high latency in their area, like TNC captain Park “March” Tae-won who is currently in South Korea.
