TNC at Kiev 2017

This is the playlist of all the games of TNC at Kiev. I will update this set of videos when they have new games, so check this playlist from time to time. I put notes on the videos to indicate if they are english casting or tagalog ones and if tnc won or lost in that particular game. (you will see the notes, when you click here)

I would like to congratulate Raven for having a record for valve events
of 33 kills in one game. That is game 2 against thunderbirds in group stage. Of course, Raven is a great carry player, but we cannot disregard the whole team effort of TNC which contributed to those kills. So, kudos to Raven and the whole TNC pro team.

I am loving TNC more and more... I think Puppey (of team Secret) said it right in this tweet of Manila Masters:

I love them not only because they are a super great team, but also because they are chasing their dreams. They are truly my inspiration!! Like them, I want to go for my dream too... of being the greatest blogger. Well, I also want to have my own TNC internet branch in our area. I have lots of dreams, but for now I'm going to focus on blogging.

I am writing this Tuesday night, 8pm manila time.... and only two days before the main event of Kiev Major. I am super excited and I think in the game day of the main event, I will be more nervous than the TNC players hahahahaa.

It is so nerve-wracking to take on single elimination tournaments, I mean you only get a few hours to show that you got what it takes to win against your opponent. Those crucial hours are so stressful, but they have done it before in TI6, although tims and ryoyr were not there at that time. 

I admire them for doing something that I feel I can't at the moment. To be able to take risks and lay it out on the line for your dream. Wow. Giving it your heart and soul to every game, I will be heartbroken if they lose to faceless on game day, but of course, what can you do but make it a lesson learned. However, if they win, I will celebrate by watching all of their Kiev 2017 games hahahhaha and choose my favorite plays and put it on this blog.

I asked the admin of their official fb page how they mentally prepare themselves before a game, but I'm not expecting a reply since they are pretty busy.
