RSG Philippines are crowned as the champion of Mobile Legends: Bang Bang South East Asian Cup MSC 2022 on Sunday after their convincing 4-0 victory over the Indonesian club RRQ Hoshi. The victory was sweet retribution for RSG Philippines, which had previously lost to RRQ Hoshi, and it gave Filipino fans of Mobile Legends esports a lot to rejoice over.
Mobile Legends Southeast Asia Cup MSC 2022: As it happened
Anyone who has followed MSC 2022 would concur that RSG Philippines’ victory was well merited given their performance during the competition. The Philippines-based club got off to a strong start in the competition, taking first place in their group ahead of RSG Singapore and See You Soon with consecutive 2-0 wins. They kept up their hot play into the knockout rounds of the upper bracket, where they defeated Falcon Esports 2-1 before sweeping aside Orange Esports 3-0 in the semifinals.
Many anticipated that they would defeat the Indonesian team rather easily as they had only lost one game going into the upper bracket finals. The Philippine-based squad was forced to play Omega Esports in the lower bracket after RRQ Hoshi’s stunning 3-1 victory eliminated them.
RSG Philippines declared that they would “get their revenge” and avenge their loss to RRQ Hoshi after defeating fellow Philippines-based team Omega Esports 3-2. To win the top prize, they achieved precisely that by crushing the Indonesian team 4-0. RRQ Hoshi initially appeared to have the advantage in both games 1 and 2, so it wasn’t all smooth sailing. RSG Philippines managed to withstand the storm and win the most awards, nevertheless, thanks to an outstanding comeback.
With this outcome, the tournament for MSC 2022 appears to have been a great success. It would not be an exaggeration to state that the tournament has been a great success and that it is encouraging for the future of Mobile Legends: Bang Bang Esports, with a peak audience of almost 2.8 million and an average viewing of about 474k. While the Indonesian team RRQ Hoshi will be left to mull over and gather themselves after a dismal performance in the finals, RSG Philippines will be seeking to take its momentum into the next competitions.
