The Kingslayers defeated the Kings of SEA 4-1 to claim the national title and crown as the MPL Philippines’ new kings.
“We were the king slayers in past seasons; this season, we are the kings. We’ve done our part here in the Philippines, and our duty for the MSC has just begun. I’m happy of this team,” says Coach Brian “Panda” Lim in a post-match interview.
RSG PH is the first team owned by a foreign company to win the MPL Philippines championship. RSG PH’s Exp-laner Nathanael “Nathzz” Estrologo, meanwhile, was named Grand Final MVP for his amazing postseason performance.
