GCM SG 2018: Resurgence back on top24.07.2018

Our Singapore representatives for the main Globe Conquerors Manila (GCM) event have been finalized! Resurgence will be our Singaporean heavy-hitters as we head into the regional portion of GCM, where we face off against representatives from Thailand, Malaysia, Philippines, and Indonesia.

 

 

Despite hitting a rough patch and dropping down to the Loser Bracket Finals, Resurgence quickly regained their footing and put on a dominant performance against Impunity. This 2-0 victory in the Loser Bracket Finals allowed Resurgence to claw their way up to the Singapore Qualifier Finals to face off against their longtime rivals, Sovereign.

 

After the final split of Singapore Legends Series this year where Sovereign finally dethroned Resurgence, it seemed for the longest time that Sovereign was Resurgence’s kryptonite. Every subsequent tournament would see the two adversaries facing off in the Finals and Sovereign would always reign supreme. It seemed like with Sovereign taking the victory over Resurgence in the Winner Bracket of the National Qualifiers, we looked poised to see the trend continue. However, Resurgence managed to turn that idea on its head as they ran the show from the very first game in the Best-of-5 series.

 

Here are the highlights from the action-packed Qualifier Finals:

With that conclusion to the GCM Singapore National Qualifiers, Resurgence is more than happy to reclaim their spot at the very top. Whether Resurgence can keep up the tempo and make Singapore proud still remains up for debate but with how clean they were in their recent games, we’re hopeful that our little red dot will be able to make our mark in Manila.
