After the lineup changes, TSM starts stage 3 very well and is close to playing its first Six Major of the year.

The Six Invitational Winners 2022 has bad stages in the North American League, staying out of Six Major Charlotte and Berlin, besides a low performance on Gamers8. Still, the changes in your lineup gave the team results. Let's look at each team tournament post-Six Invitational.

NAL Stage 1

With 2 Wins, 1 Overtime Defeat, and 6 Defeats, the team finished 9th. From the stats, we can see that TSM games were faster, late round stats are low, like Plants and Clutches rates. However, the initial actions of the round are of low team performance, such as the Opening Kill and Kill per Death.

Stats:

• 4th in Kills in Rounds (Teams) - 7,12
• 7th in Attack Wins - 44%
• 7th in Clutches per Map - 0,66
• 8th in Plants per Rounds (TSM Plants and Opponent Plants) - 49%
• 8th in Clutches per Map (TSM Clutches and Opponent Clutches) - 1,33
• 8th in Defense Wins - 43%
• 9th in KD (Teams) - 0,88
• 9th in OPK (+-) - (-7)
• 9th in Plants per Attack - 19%

NAL Stage 2

Stage 2 is very similar to stage 3, so keeping your feet on the ground is something with three clean wins and one overtime defeat, a start very similar to the current one. The problem is that the team finished the stage with three clean wins, one overtime win, one overtime defeat, and four losses. But it had a slight improvement in kill per kill, a more effective attack, but it continued to be a team that delivered many plants and clubs per game.

Gamers8

In this tournament, the team decided to test the Snake to replace Chala, right away the team played an incredible match against MiBR, already showing a different attitude, but against BDS, it was not possible to play against a team that proved to be superior, and in the last match of the group stage, an elimination for the Arab team, which came to conquer the second place of the competition. But we noticed an improvement in the team in the late round, suffering fewer plants and clutches per game but still not finding the balance in the early round.

Stats:
• 2nd in Plants per Attack - 34%
• 5th in Kills in Rounds (Teams) - 7,15
• 5th in Attack Wins - 39%
• 6th in Plants per Rounds (TSM Plants and Opponent Plants) - 49%
• 6th in Clutches per Map - 0,28
• 6th in OPK (+-) - (-7)

• 7th in KD (Teams) - 0,88
• 7th in Defense Wins - 45%
• 8th in Clutches per Map (TSM Clutches and Opponent Clutches) - 0,71

After roster change

The changes were made for a more offensive game, as Chala and Geo were very similar in playstyle. Gasher took care of this more defensive role, and Snake had more freedom to help the early round, so the late round would have a younger player and a more aggressive style; in addition to Achieved not performing very well offensively in the last stages, you can bring the player's experience more to the late round and give freedom to the offensive duo of TSM (Beaulo and Merc) that we all know of the ability, in addition to the young player Snake, finally having the balance closer to perfection.

Stats: 1st March to 5th September
