In MPL SG S4, the encounters between RSG SG and Slate Esports have been nothing short of electric. RSG SG struck first with a 2-0 win in the League, followed by a nail-biting 3-2 win on Day One of the playoffs. I went down to Our Tampines Hub and watched RSG SG and Slate Esports during Day One of the playoffs where both teams gave the crowd and supporters a lot to cheer about in lengthy 5 games battle, a prelude to the MPL SG S4 Grand Finals between them on the following day.

Slate Esports dispatched EVIL comfortably (3-0) in the Lower Bracket Finals, the stage was now set for a highly anticipated finale between MPL SG’s now eternal rivals. Slate Esports got off to a great start by taking the first game, they had been getting the worst of it in recent encounters. RSG SG responded instantly with venom, and both Slate Esports and RSG SG traded the lead until the final, winner-takes-all game. RSG SG finished with great confidence and style, sending the supporters in the crowd wild.

There were a crowd of over 500 viewers watching it live at Our Tampines Hub, giving great support to the teams that they were supporting, creating a raucous atmosphere fitting for this Grand Finals occasion. There was also a record of 32,545 online viewers watching concurrently, outperforming MPL SG previous seasons in online viewership.

Lee Jian Ming, Managing Director, Zenway Productions, said: “The steady improvement of the local professional Mobile Legends: Bang Bang esports scene was the highlight of MPL Singapore Season 4 as fans were treated to many high-octane matches throughout the season. The viewership numbers, online and offline, more than doubled from last season. More fans are now willing to take their weekends off to watch our top teams in action to continuously watch our Grand Finals – which lasted almost seven hours, and yet there was no drop in fans onsite. The increase in numbers showcases the huge potential of esports in Singapore, and we will continue to push for better viewing experiences next season.”
