TNC Predator will start its journey at ESL One Birmingham 2019 with a three-game series against Team Tigers in what should be a hard-fought Dota 2 affair.

Both of these squads participated in the SouthEast Asia Region qualifier at MDL Paris and the OGA Pit Minor, but didn’t face each other in either campaign.

In Birmingham, they will be competing for a slot in the main tournament from the SouthEast Asia Region.

Coming into the contest, TNC has displayed a wide range drafting tactics in their recent performances, including the selection of Oracle as fifth support and Razor in position three.

TNC did not adopt a pushing strategy in MDL or Pit Minor, but the Tigers will still need to prepare for it, as this meta does reward the tactic.

Team Tigers’ result at MDL and PIT Minor was disappointing, finishing in last place in both tournaments.

The departure of Moonmeander has definitely hurt the Tigers’ synergy. Duo support players, Xepher and 1437, are doing their best to carry the team, but 458, Dendi and Velo are not on the same level as the supports.

The Tigers draft of late has been questionable. They picked Pudge as support in game one against Mineski in the group stage of the MDL SouthEast Asia qualifier.

Pudge has never been a popular selection in professional matches, given he is not good at babysitting and doesn’t have much impact in team fights.
