Philippine Dota 2 team TNC Predator won $125,000 from a $300,000 total prize pool at the Electronic Sports League (ESL) One 2019 Dota 2 championship in Hamburg, Germany on Sunday, October 27. They take down UK-based Gambit Esports to win the tournament.
It was a tight match between the two teams with the best-of-5 series going to the fifth game, but TNC Predator ultimately proved they were the better team, securing the championship victory within 30 minutes of the final game.
They announced their victory on Facebook. “This tournament is a great opportunity for us to work as a unit as we prepare for the Dota Pro Circuit, we are very thankful for this chance and the victory that came along,” TNC Predator said.
