DAY 3 OF THE GROUP STAGES: Catch Resurgence battle it out on YouTube! (check out their match timings in the schedule below)
Today heralds the first day of the Garena Premier League (GPL) Summer 2017 Group Stages as well as the start of the fierce battle between regions to prove who exactly has the mettle to call themselves Southeast Asia’s elite.
Out of the 7 teams participating, only 2 teams will have the honour of representing SEA in the Worlds Championship 2017.
For local champions Resurgence, it’s definitely not their first foray into international waters but this will be the first time that they’ll be working together with Thai players, Rockk and Intreso, known for their outstanding performance in TPL’s SEA Serpents. Unfortunately, their original top laner, Revive is unable to make it for GPL due to his academic commitments. Resurgence’s prodigious midlaner, Raven, was also unable to participate in the GPL due to his age. As such, the new and updated roster for Resurgence is as follows:
To get ready for the upcoming skirmishes, Team Resurgence flew over to Bangkok a few days earlier to undergo an intensive training bootcamp with their new Thai members in their very own Thai gaming house.
Despite the short duration of the bootcamp, its intensity made up for it as both the Singaporean and Thai players invested their hearts and souls in the training, their desire to win overcoming the minor hurdle of language barriers.
This new and improved Resurgence will be debuting in the opening match of the Group Stages against Team Manila Eagles (the Filipino Champion) at 12:00PM SGT today (21 August). Will Resurgence’s updated roster be able to bring in dividends and carve out a path of victory for Singapore?
