Ninjaboogie parts ways with TNC Predator
TNC Predator to make roster adjustment just days after a disappointing run in the DreamLeague Season 11 Stockholm Major SEA qualifiers.
TNC has had a less than stellar new year. In January the team took a disappointing 9-12th place finish at Chongqing Major and then failed to qualify for the third Major of the DPC season. Some might have chalked up TNC's performance in China to a change in synergy and mounting pressure as they played with Ryo "ryOyr" Hasegawa who had stepped in for Kuku "Kuku" Palad after the controversy surrounding racism and accountability intensified and escalated further with social media outpour. But Kuku stepped back into the team lineup shortly after and TNC played in their original format for the Stockholm Major qualifiers, being eliminated in the first round of the lower brackets.
Now, Michael 'ninjaboogie' Ross will be taking his leave from the team while Nico "eyyou" Barcelon steps into his place for the upcoming StarLadder Kiev Minor SEA qualifiers starting later this week.
The StarLadder Kiev Minor open qualifiers for SEA will take place between February 7-8th, followed by the closed qualifiers starting on the 9th. Only one team from the region will earn a spot in the main event scheduled for March.
