TNC Pro Team bows out in loss to OG

GGWP, TNC Pro Team.

The Filipinos' run at the Dota 2 The International 7 (TI7) at the Key Arena in Seattle ended early Thursday morning.

Their old nemesis OG swept the Philippine team, 2-0, in their best-of-3 lower bracket match, which meant TNC Pro Team's elimination.

TNC Pro Team stunned OG in a massive upset in the same tournament last year.

This year, the Filipinos finished in 9th-12th place, which is good for a prize money of more than $361,000 ( or around P18 million).

Another Filipino team, Execration, was eliminated early in the tournament at the hands of Team Secret from Europe. 

The T17 champion will bring home more than half a billion pesos.
