Sporting a brand-new haircut, Leixia from RSG MY, winner of the Mobile Legends: Bang Bang Professional League Malaysia Season 7 (MPL-MY S7) took some time off between training for the MLBB Southeast Asia Cup (MSC) 2021 to answer some questions about his team and their performance.
Leixia: We expected to meet Todak because they are more experienced in the game, and as you know, Todak is the best team in Malaysia.
Leixia: Yah, we were confident because we had the upper bracket advantage and the team was ready to fight whoever made it to the final.
Leixia: Perhaps they were mentally exhausted but we were already prepared to counter their playstyles, so we feel it wasn’t that big of a factor.
Leixia: They wanted to play, but they decided to give the opportunity to the newer guys on the team. They also had a more suitable playstyle for the matches we were going to play.
Leixia: It is based on scrims and gameplay style. Syno has his own gameplay style and so does Kaizer, so based on our scrims, we change up our players for different game plans against different opponents.
Leixia: Rush provides a lot of moral support from the outside, he analyzes the game and also coaches the team. He is important to the team. Rush didn’t want to play in the team. He still wants to play the game but only for fun.
Leixia: Yes, he handles the drafting because he knows the players very well.
Leixia: Basically, he’ll make his decision first to counter the enemy heroes. But sometimes he’ll give us two options for a pick to get our opinions.
Leixia: We aren’t taking a break because we want to go all out to make sure that our gameplay is on point for MSC. I’ll take a break after that.
Leixia: Malaysia and other regions have their own gameplay style, we can’t predict which draft and meta will be different from us.
Leixia: We'll take on any opponent presented to us. It’s going to be like a civil war!
Leixia: They would like to remain in the competitive scene, but due to life commitments and their skill level compared to newer players, it makes it hard to do so. They feel like the newer younger players have much better skills, but they would definitely like to continue playing as long as they can. As for retired players, I think Soloz and Fredo should come back to the ML competitive scene!
Leixia: We’re going to give to our family first, and the rest we’ll keep for the future.
Leixia: I would like to say, thank you from the bottom of my heart. The ones who supported us from nothing to something and never gave up on us. Thank you for the positive comments that have helped us to move on further and hope you guys keep supporting us to the end. RSG is love!
