The Mobile Legends: Bang Bang Southeast Asia Cup (MSC) 2021 kicked off earlier this week and after 3 days of intense action, the 12 teams have been whittled down to just 8. As expected, the favorites are still in the tournament, with the Philippines taking up 2 slots in the upper bracket (Blacklist International and Execration), Malaysia (RSG MY) and Indonesia (EVOS Legends) filling up the other 2. In the lower bracket, we have Indonesia (Bigetron Alpha), Malaysia (Todak), Cambodia (Impunity KH), and Singapore (EVOS SG) remaining. Thailand (IDNS), Laos (Nightmare Esports), Vietnam (Cyber Exe) and the other Singaporean team (RSG SG) have been eliminated.
Since the remaining teams have proven themselves to be the best of this tournament, the final weekend is going to be an exciting clash of titans. Here are the matchups and our predictions:
RSG MY vs BLCK: While we're confident in the skills of our Malaysian boys, we feel that they are going to have trouble closing out the match against the very experienced MPL-PH S7 winners, Blacklist International. Perhaps they'll drop down to the lower bracket to fight their way back up to the grand finals again. Either way, we think it's going to be a close one, 1-2 in Blacklist's favour.
EVOS Legends vs EXE: The Indonesians have been on fire this tournament, and so have Execration but they haven't been truly tested yet. Since EVOS Legends won MPL-ID convincingly, while Execration were runner ups at MPL-PH, we'll give the edge to the former. Our prediction: 2-1 to EVOS Legends.
BTR vs TDK: Both teams had rough group stages, with Bigetron Alpha due to their lineup/position change and Todak taking their time to find their footing. It's going to be a matter of who shows up this Friday, but we have faith in our Malaysian boys. Todak should move forward 1-2.
IMP KH vs RSG SG: Impunity KH are probably the only underdogs remaining in the tournament and have been picking up steam across the 3 days, so it's going to be interesting to see how well they do against Singapore's best. If they can keep their aggression in check and respond to RSG SG's macro movements, the Cambodians stand a chance, but we think RSG SG are going to emerge victorious, 1-2.
The ultimate Mobile Legends: Bang Bang esports event in Southeast Asia is finally here, with the MLBB SEA Cup 2021 pitting the best in the region against one another for the US$15,000 prize pool.
