TNC and RSG take the last series of Week 6 Day 2 of the Regular season with TNC needing a miracle run to avoid elimination and break the six games lose streak. The team is against the rising underdogs, RSG, that are sitting comfortably in the third seed of the standings. RSG chose a lineup that heavily relied on magic damage and extended skirmishes with Nathzz picking Esmeralda, Iy4knu with the Harith pick and Aqua as Yve. TNC countered by locking in Alice for Kousei and Lapulapu on Chuuu. The lead was indecisive in the initial stages of battle as both teams pummeled at each other and digging up exploits to take trades in kills and objectives. Both teams scaled through in nailbiter skirmishes and the lead tiptoeing towards TNC’s lead. It was a battle between individual prowess as Chuuu’s Ling soared through the map, dishing out continuous damage while remaining deathless all throughout the game. Nathzz also provided the damage and sustain they needed but the team effort shelled out by TNC were not enough which gave enough space for the team to peel off during extended clashes and hold their ground. The clash in the 13-minute mark proved the sustaining strength for TNC by holding out the sieging RSG with the help of the lord secured. The team held their heads held high and won the last clash with their overall damage being too much for the sustaining RSG, taking game 1 within 15 minutes.
With TNC’s playoffs life is put on the line, the team had all hands on deck in keeping their last life breathing as the second game commences. Chuuu locked in Yi Sun Shin for TNC while the others went for the same lineup with Popol and Kupa being the other unique pick for the series. RSG opted for comfort picks that counters the extended fights picked by their opponent with Rafaela from Heath to support their chance of burying the playoff berth. The durable lineup of RSG gave the squad the early lead which led to early domination and map control for the whole early phase. The objectives were equal with one turtle advantage easily secured by kill and KDA leader Demonkite. The game was at the hands of RSG as the lead was further pushed and more turrets were besieged within 10 minutes as they look into coming back from an upsetting defeat on the first game. TNC, with their playoff lives on the line, held the line by enduring all the blows and denying every entry and backdoor attempt and keep their nexus in one piece. With over 8000 gold and all turrets knocked down by RSG, the odds were stacked against the striving TNC. TNC went for a similar route similar to Game 1 of NXPE vs Echo where the pace slowed down in the midgame, sustaining until late game. 3Martzy made sure that the minions were kept in check while the rest of the squad led by Chuuu providing global vision watched out for loopholes that could give their backs against the wall a sigh of relief. As all items are now locked in for both teams, team coordination, vision control and the lord were the remaining win conditions. TNC had to keep an eye for backdoors however as the red side had the nexus as the only remaining structure standing strong. For more than 10 minutes, TNC showed why they are in the professional scene, maximizing every window of error they could find against the rampaging RSG. The lord in the 29-minute mark secured by Chuuu in a nailbiter battle for retribution spelled victory for the squad. TNC held the line to turn the favors into their hands and break the 6-game losing streak, taking the series win and revive their playoffs life with a slither of health.
