Team Flash has secured their first-ever Mobile Legends Bang Bang Professional League Singapore title after dethroning reigning champions Team RSG in the Grand Final of MPL SG Season 6. With this historic win, they will represent their country in the M5 World Championship. The tournament's sixth season has been a huge success, smashing all the viewership records.
From crowning the new champions to garnering record-breaking viewership, here's a brief recap of everything from the final day of the tournament.
MPL SG Season 6 crowns a new champion
MPL SG Season 6 finally has a new champion in Team Flash, who ousted Team RSG from their throne. The two-time winners relinquished their title and the chance to qualify directly for the M5 World Championship on October 22, 2023.
Team Flash, largely consisting of MPL SG veterans, have been labeled as “rejects” in the professional MLBB scene of Singapore. Despite their “retiree” tag, players like Bao, Vanix, Adammir, Hadess, Kenn, Jayy, MikuMikuMii, and Lolsie put up heroic performances this season to defy all the odds and clinch their first local championship.
The final was littered with surprises, including Hadess’ comeback by performing a backdoor in game 5 and Adammir’s heroic defense that helped Team Flash narrowly escape defeat in game 6.
Eugine “Kayzeepi” Kong, the analyst for Team Flash, said:
"It is quite a miracle. We pulled off from 1:3 to 4:3... we took out things that we usually don't and we still managed to do it because we trust each and every one of our players."
Team coach Remas “Remaniscent” Hong stated:
"We formed this dream team to win the championship but didn't know what to expect when we headed in. When we won the first series against RSG SG in the Regular Season, that's when we knew that we had something special.
He further added:
There have been a lot of challenges, there have been a lot of doubts, but overall, we still managed to pull it off."
