What happened to TNC at TI 9

Many people considered TNC Predator to be one of the “hidden” favorites at this years’ TI. During the group stage, fans saw their Dota 2 prowess, but things changed once the playoffs began. In a very back-and-forth battle, TNC dropped the series against Vici Gaming and fell to the lower bracket. Unfortunately, their next opponent happened to be none other than Team Liquid.
Despite the 9th-12th finish, TNC proved to be a very solid team. That’s what makes Kuku’s decision slightly strange, but he definitely knows what’s best for him. For now, there has been no response from the TNC organization.
Kuku found himself in the spotlight earlier this year. During a PUB game, Kuku insulted a Chinese player while in-game. This led to a ban from Valve for the Chongqing Major in addition to other monetary sanctions.
