MPL Update | EVOS SG: MPL-SG S1 Champions
Welcome to our weekly instalment of updates for the Mobile Legends: Bang Bang Professional League. Since the announcement of the MLBB SEA Cup (MSC) 2021, everyone's been curious about who's going to make the cut for the tournament but that has yet to be determined since we still have a couple of MPLs to wrap up. First, let's take a look at what happened last week.
EVOS SG wins MPL-SG S1
After a gruelling 4 weeks and the playoffs, it looks like the best teams from MPL-MY/SG (back when it was combined) are still the best teams in the country. The grand finals came down to a showdown between EVOS SG and RSG SG. EVOS SG cruised all the way throughout the upper bracket, only losing a single game to Notorious Villains in the first round, and never dropped another one after that. RSG SG had to start from the lower bracket, but they completely dominated all their opponents in their path, without losing any games until the last match of the tournament. We can't say if it was exhaustion or just a pure outclass, but EVOS SG stomped RSG SG in a clean 3-0 final. Not much to say except congratulations to them for winning the very first season of MPL-SG. Congratulations to Potato, JPL, Girl, Pokemon, Dagger, Swoop and Soul for their victory.
Aura PH and Blacklist stay on top MPL-PH S7
About 3 hours away from Singapore, we had the very exciting sixth week of MPL-PH S7. Blacklist and Aura PH showed why they are kings of their group with their immaculate performances over the weekend. With only one week of the regular season left, things aren't looking great for Cignal Ultra's fresh squad for the season and Laus Playbook Esports, an open qualifier team. Similar to Team Bosskur in MPL-MY S7, they are pretty much mathematically eliminated from the playoffs. Maybe they can pull off some wins next week to boost the morale of the players.
MPL-MY S7 resumes 28-30 May
We've got two weeks of calm before the storm - all the teams competing at the MPL-MY S7 playoffs have been decided, and now we play the waiting game. With the Hari Raya break coming up this week, we're sure that the teams will have a nice long break to refresh themselves for the most important matches of their lives. Don't forget to catch the action live on eGG Network TV when it happens. Mark 28-30 May on your calendars!
EVOS Legends win MPL-ID S7
We know this is a bit late, but we figured we'd update those who missed out on the happenings of the Indonesian MLBB scene. EVOS Legends pulled off an epic lower bracket comeback after being sent down by grand finalists Bigetron Alpha and winning the lower bracket finals. The grand finals showed that the team were championship material as they went on to win the best-of-seven series 4-2 to claim the trophy. We can expect to see the squad appearing at the MSC later this year.
That's it for this week but there's still plenty of Mobile Legends action to come. Make sure you stay tuned to eGG Network for all the latest news and updates!
