Dota 2 Team Bio: Team TnC
TnC, or TnC Pro Team, is an up and coming star in the world of esports. Here, you’ll get all the TnC Dota 2 top team info – including how and when the group was founded; their highlights so far; details on how they are marketing themselves; team roles; and their achievements so far.
TnC was founded in February 2015 in the Phillipines. The group was formed from a Filipino net café chain known as TheNet.com, and has carved out an impressive position within the world of Dota 2 ever since.
Highlights & Strengths
TnC has a history of success in many of the big Dota 2 events, largely due to their absolute dedication to reaching the top. Taking on DeMoN as team captain, they enjoyed great success in the Dota 2 International.
Having overcome some visa issues, TnC went on to win their first game in this event. They then defeated the two-time major champions in the second game – marking themselves out as a highly ambitious team.
Despite then losing to Digital Chaos, TnC collected an impressive $500,000 in winnings – and it seems likely that this is only the start of what will be a very lucrative journey for the new guys on the block.
Branding, Sponsorship, Logo
The TnC logo is representative of how serious these guys are about playing Dota 2 to win. It features a predator in eye-catching orange with the TnC initials beside it in black and red, with the words ‘pro team’ being a clear indication of the fact that this represents a force to be reckoned with.
The intimidating predator dominates the TnC jersey against a black background – offering fans the opportunity to align themselves with these professional gamers. TnC wallpaper is easily found with a little research, and is a great way to demonstrate affiliation with the brand. The team is sponsored by Predator, NiuGame, Twitch, DXRACER, and TheNet.com.
