MAKATI - TNC Pro Team's MPL Philippines Season 13 hopes come to a close as they conceded a 0-2 sweep against RSG Philippines in Week 6 of the regular season Sunday.

The loss marked TNC's fourth straight playoff absence, and fifth overall, with their lone postseason appearance in Season 9 when they finished third.

The Phoenix Army had a strong first game with them even leading by almost three thousand gold and a 10-5 scoreline in the first 10 minutes, with Cesar "Nomed" Sugarno scoring four and assisting one with the Lunox.

However, Arvie "Aqua" Antonio's Vexana turned the tables for the Raiders, stealing the lord away and the rest of the team taking down three TNC heroes.

From there, RSG did not look back and secured the first game, with Dylan "Light" Catipon leading his team with two kills and 10 assists as his Franco created several game-changing sets in the almost 16-minute match.

It was a different story in Game 2 as TNC Pro Team was dominated by their rivals, 16 games to five, as they fell within 15 minutes without getting a single major objective.

 Dean "Raizen" Sumagui had a quiet Game 2 as his Barats fell five times and only assisted three, while Czedrick "Super Yoshi" Romero's Franco was down four times.

Aqua's Angela was the difference maker for RSG with four kills and 10 assists, while Nathanael "Nathzz" Estrologo tallied four more and assisted nine with the Cici.

RSG PH will still have a chance for a top-three spot as they set their eyes against Minana EVOS next Friday, while TNC will try to play spoiler to ONIC Philippines the same day.
