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.”

MPL SG Season 4 Playoffs 7-9 October 2022 at Tampines Hub

The Regular Season of Mobile Legends: Bang Bang Professional League Singapore Season 4 (MPL SG S4) has ended recently, with RSG SG making a stunning clean sweep. The Season 3 Champions proved their mettle once again by besting all of the other teams, winning 2-0 in each best-of-three match and they only drop a single game in its match against Stellark. Now MPL SG Season 4 goes into the next phase, it is now Playoffs time, taking place from 7th to 9th October 2022 at Tampunes Hub. The MPL SG S4 Playoffs will be open to the public. Eight of the best teams in Singapore will fight it out for the coveted title of MPL SG S4 Champion and a spot at the M4 World Championships taking place in Jakarta from 1st to 15th January 2023.

In a repeat of last season’s standings, the champions reigned at the top, followed by fierce rivals Slate in 2nd place. Slate is the successor to perennial favourites EVOS SG, as it features the manager, the captain, and the majority of players from the now-defunct team. RSG SG won 2-0 and went on to beat Stellark SG (formerly Team Oldman) 2-1 in their final match.

As for the 3rd and 4th places, they are Revival (formerly ALMGHTY) and Team SMG, known as singer JJ Lin’s team. Both teams have improved significantly from their bottom 3 finishes last season, they will be joining RSG SG and Slate as the seeded teams in the Upper Bracket of the Playoffs.

Stellark SG is the sole new team for this season with an older-than-average squad, they showed that veterans were still highly competitive, finishing a respectable fifth in the table.

Jaime Cruz, Esports Lead at MOONTON Games said: “Season 4 has given us its fair share of memorable highlights: RSG SG and Slate Esports’ intense rivalry and outstanding run culminating in a table-deciding showdown on the last week of the Regular Season; and Team SMG and Revival’s drastic improvement to finish in the top half of the table. The hard work and efforts of the players have showcased the competitive spirit of MPL SG, and I’m excited for fans to witness even more thrilling matches in the Playoffs.”

Lee Jian Ming, Founder and Managing Director, Zenway Productions, said, “MLBB is the biggest game in Singapore’s esports scene and MPL SG S4 demonstrates just why with its irresistible blend of action and drama. Zenway Productions is proud to be able to bring all of these moments to fans around the world. The hybrid model where fans can watch the games in person or online is perfect for esports and we’re excited to bring this to the fans to enjoy.”

Top MPL SG athletes are frequently chosen to represent Singapore at regional esports competitions. Four players in the current MPL SG S4 represented Singapore at the recent 2021 Southeast Asian (SEA) Games held in Hanoi, Vietnam – ‘Seilah’, ‘Adammir’, and ‘JPL’ from Slate Esports and ‘Remaniscent’ from Team Flash – and secured a Bronze medal in the Mobile Legends: Bang Bang category.

The eight teams now enter the double-elimination playoffs to compete for the title and the coveted lion’s share of the SGD 100,000 prize pool. The winner will also represent Singapore at the Mobile Legends: Bang Bang World Championship (M4), which will be held in Jakarta, Indonesia, from 1-15 January 2023. The M4 is the most prestigious title on the MPL calendar, where 16 of the world’s best MLBB teams will be competing for the title of World Champion, and the lion’s share of the USD 800,000 prize money.
