TNC.Predator have had a below par season, until now, failing to qualify for the last 2 minors/majors. Their performance at ESL ONE Mumbai was a ray of hope in what has been a bleak season. It was evident that TNC needed a coach, someone to guide them to victory and they have done just that.
Earlier today TNC.Predator announced Lee “Heen” Seung Gon as their new coach for their DOTA 2 roster.
As a player, Lee “Heen” Seung Gon has played for MVP Hot6, but his main achievement has been guiding Team Liquid to become winners of THE INTERNATIONAL 7 (2017). Heen coached Team Liquid for over two and a half years, before parting ways with them in November 2018but not before winning a TI,a major and a host of other tournaments.
TNC.Predator had the following statement to make:
We are excited to announce the newest addition to our roster, Lee “Heen” Seung Gon! An experienced player and a TI champion coach himself, we believe that Heen will be a great help for us as we prepare for ESL One Birmingham and the final stretch of the Dota Pro Circuit, culminating to the International 2019.
Let’s welcome Heen to the TNC Predator Family!
Heen joins TNC.Predator, just in time, to help them prepare for the ESL One Birmingham 2019, which the team has qualified for. With the dates for The International 9 already out, Heen and TNC will double their efforts and hard work to qualify for the last major of the season, EPICENTER, to help secure a slot at TI. Now, all we have to do is wait and see if Heen has the same impact at TNC. Predator as he did during his time with Team Liquid.
Check out the TNC Predator line-up:
