Week 1 Results: Defending Champions Humbled
Three-time MPL SG champions, RSG SG, began their Season 6 campaign with a 1-2 loss at the hands of long-time rivals, Team Flash. Team Flash Roamer, Bellamy "Lolsie" Yeo, played a crucial role in his team's victory. Having been sent to Team Flash on loan from RSG SG at the start of the season, Lolsie played like he had a point to prove, and his triple combo of Kaja, Edith, and Ruby was too much for his former team, earning him the Man of the Match. His confidence was brimming in the post-match interview, where Lolsie described himself as the "win con[dition]" for Team Flash.
Elsewhere, MPL SG debutants, Homebois SG, picked up crucial wins in their opening two matches, including a hard-fought 2-1 victory against one of this season's favourites, Bleed Esports. A community favourite from across the border, Homebois SG are living up to their billing a this season's dark horses and will be one to watch as the season progresses.

Week 2: Early Test For League Leaders
Week 2 holds some mouth-watering match-ups. Defending champions, RSG SG, will go up against this season's table topping upstarts, Homebois SG, at 12:30pm on 16 September. A win will be a major statement for either team, especially with their title rivals watching hungrily from the sidelines.
Day 2 on 17 September will be no less exciting as eternal rivals Bleed Esports and RSG MY lock horns at 10am. Regardless of RSG MY's results the previous day, they will know that this is a must-win match to keep their title ambitions on track. Homebois SG will then face off against EVIL's unorthodox draft picks at 3pm in a stern test for this season's dark horses.
