RSG MY displayed quality Mobile Legends last weekend, defeating Todak 4-2 in the grand final to become the MPL MY Season 7 champion.
In their first season in the MPL, RSG MY had an incredible playoffs run, propelling themselves to the top.
RSG MY levelled up in the MPL MY Season 7 playoffs
RSG MY was formed just before MPL MY Season 7 started, and recruited veteran players such as Syno, Zaraki, Rush, and Logan. Out of all of them, Leixia stood out the most.
The first three weeks of the regular season was difficult for RSG MY. They slumped to the bottom of the table after taking hard felt losses. The moment they combined the three key pillars of Lolealz, Izanami, and Zacus however, their fate changed.
Together with Kaizer and Leixia on the main roster, RSG’s performance improved so much that they qualified to the upper bracket of the playoffs.

No one expected RSG MY to pull off such an incredible run in the playoffs. In their opening best-of-three match in the upper bracket, they made a statement by taking down defending champions Todak 2-1.
Meeting another league leader of the regular season, RSG MY went on to sweep Suhaz EVOS 2-0 in the semifinals.
Finally, in the grand final, RSG MY met Todak again, and were trailing 0-2 in the best-of-seven series before clawing back for a 4-2 victory.

In the grand final match, Leixia and the squad proved that hard work pays off, for together, they upset the MPL MY Season 6 defending champions, Todak.
Teammate Lolealz, a side laner, also played aggressively well on Harith. A flexible player, he’s also shown to be able to execute on marksmen and other mages in the side lane. For his performance in the MPL MY Season 7 playoffs, he was awarded the MVP.
“He played well, controlling the game, and made an important move to initiate and win a team fight,” wrote MPL MY’s official Facebook post.
RSG MY and Todak will represent Malaysia at MSC 2021 which starts in June.
