MPL-MY/SG Playoffs: Resurgence send Orange Esports Reborn home in third

MPL-MY/SG Playoffs: Resurgence send Orange Esports Reborn home in third

The Singaporean powerhouse guarantees a top-two finish as they set up a grand final date with Geek Fam.

Orange Esports Reborn’s surprising Playoffs run finally came to an end after losing 2-0 to Resurgence. The young Malaysian team who stunned fans with wins over Axis Esports, Team Bosskurr and defending champions EVOS SG finish the Playoffs an impressive third.

However, Resurgence proved too strong for the dark horses of the Playoffs. The Singaporean powerhouse dispatched Orange Esports Reborn in two quick games, the first took only 10:50 minutes whereas Game 2 lasted 12 minutes.

Game 2 post-match statistics.

The series was extremely one-sided, with Resurgence recording a perfect game with no deaths in the first game. Although ly4ly4ly4 earned the majority of the kills for his team, SynC’s performance was noteworthy for his flexibility in adjusting his picks for the team. He played Uranus in Game 1 and Silvanna in Game 2, both of which were not his comfort mid lane picks.

Orange Esports Reborn fought valiantly in both games, but were simply outclassed by a superior team. Despite the loss, they can surely hold their heads high for reaching the later stages of the tournament.

Resurgence will next meet an on-form Geek Fam who had defeated them 2-0 in the upper bracket final. Players on both teams have the opportunity to become MPL-MY/SG’s first two-time champions. Who do you think will emerge victorious?
