By Ivan Saldajeno

MANILA--TNC showed its might in the preliminary round of the Kiev Major.

The Filipino club won three of its four group stage matches to secure a higher seed entering the knockout stages which will begin on Thursday.

TNC scored its first win by sweeping EG, 2-0, and eventually went 2-0 in the standings after a 2-1 win against TBirds.

TNC failed in its first bid to snatch a Top 8 spot after bowing to Virtus Pro, 0-2, but finally secured it with a 2-1 victory over Digital Chaos.

TNC ended in a three-way tie with Invictus and OG for third place, but the Filipino quintet settled for the fourth seed following the breaking of ties, in which it had the second-best record in terms of total wins and losses.

TNC will take on the 13th-seeded Faceless in the first round of the playoffs on Saturday (Philippine Time).
