Fnatic wins first series in DPC 2021-22 while TNC Predator extends losing streak
In game 1, it was quite a tight match as both teams switched until Fnatic started to take the lead. For TNC Predator, only YoungGod progressed with his Lifestealer safelane, while everyone on the Fnatic side farmed well. The lack of damage from TNC Predator led to Fnatic winning the teamfight and then winning after 39 minutes.
In game 2, Fnatic gained the advantage in the draft phase as TNC Predator’s draft proved to be rather one-sided. A draft that mostly revolves around physical damage and little control makes it difficult for TNC Predator to make a lot of moves, while allowing Fnatic to play at will. Once the laning phase ended, Fnatic kept scoring after kills and darting from target to goal to easily win in 32 minutes.
Here are some highlights of the series.
After a rough start in the 2021-22 DPC campaign against Team SMG, Fnatic looked a lot better today, underscoring their ability in two wins. On the other hand, TNC Predator failed to make an impression once again, recording their third consecutive loss at the tournament. With some tough matches still to come, it will be tough for the new TNC Predator team to finish in the top three.
