Last Sunday, in an electrifying Mobile Legends: Bang Bang Grand Finals match that saw both teams continuously trade the lead, defending champions Resurgence SG managed to pull the rug out from under Slate Esports, sealing the deal with a score of 4-3

Held at Our Tampines Hub over the weekend, the Mobile Legends: Bang Bang Professional League Singapore (Season 4), or MPL SG S4 drew over 500 physical viewers for the Finals match alone, with thousands more joining in to catch the stream online. At its peak, the three-day tournament had 32,545 concurrent online viewers, making it the best-performing edition of the local MPL circuit to date.

Needless to say, a hearty round of congratulations is certainly in order for Resurgence. Not only did they manage to clinch the MPL SG title back-to-back, but they're also the first team to breeze through an entire MPL season without suffering a single match loss. Come January, the team will be heading to Jakarta, Indonesia to represent Singapore at the World Finals, where they'll be duking it out against the world's best for the lion's share of the US$800,000 prize money.

Yet, Slate Esports played admirably as well, and their tenacity is especially laudable considering they had already weathered an earlier 3-2 defeat against Resurgence within the Upper Bracket. From the Lower Bracket, they climbed back up to the Grand Finals with a stellar 3-0 victory over EVIL, and they even managed to take the first game against Resurgence. However, the latter held fast and counterattacked, and the two teams ended up trading wins all the way to the aforementioned 4-3 score.

Gracing the event was Mr Masagos Zulkifli, Minister for Social and Family Development, who took the stage to present a number of awards. Specifically, the award for Best Rookie went to Vernon “Peace” Chua, Regular Season MVP to Bellamy “Lolsie” Yeo, MVP for the Playoffs to Yeo "Diablo" Wee Lun, and Best Caster to Chris “Jayz” Yeo. Notably, the latter will be heading to Jakarta along with Resurgence in January, where he'll represent the little red dot in the casting booth.
