On the win, SynC from Resurgence said:

It’s an incredible feeling winning MPL-MY/SG for the second time. The league has grown so much since Season 1 and there are so many talented players and teams in the scene today. We salute Geek Fam for being amazing opponents, we’re sure that they will bounce back next season. We are so grateful to everyone who has supported us along the way, especially to our fans from both Singapore and Malaysia, you guys are the reason we keep on going.

Meanwhile Mohamad Zul Hisham, AKA Xorn of Geek Fam, said:

Hey there Fam, we played our hearts out, but Resurgence were the better team today, so a huge congratulations to them. Of course, we are disappointed with the result considering our performance throughout the entire season, but it is what it is. We are truly sorry for letting our fans and our country down. Know that this will only serve as motivation for us to come back stronger, and there is nothing we want more than raising the Malaysian flag high once again.

Congratulations to the winning team!
