As for the coaching staff, the enigmatic Coach 413 who will lead the team. He will be replacing Coach Vrendon "V" Lin.
Can TNC finally make their breakthrough?
TNC made a massive surprise last season when they defied everyone's expectations with their second place finish in the regular season.
They entered the playoffs, and finished third after losing to Omega Esports in the lower bracket finals. This is the highest achievement that the team attained in its MPL history.
It was also during that season where the team suffered from the absence of Coach V as he was forced to battle Potts Disease.
Now with a new head coach and the same core, the Phoenix might be able to maintain their chemistry while introducing new tactics under the leadership of 413.
