SLS 2018: Resurgence and Sovereign to battle for championship05.03.2018

Local powerhouses Resurgence and Sovereign will battle this Saturday 10 March, 3PM in the SLS Grand Finals for a chance to represent Singapore in the upcoming Garena Premier League (GPL). Both the teams marched to the finals with convincing 2-0 wins over their opponents Really Awesome and J3X ESports to set-up a rematch of the 2017 Spring Finals, where Resurgence (Team Flash) emerged victorious in an epic 5-game series. 

Resurgence has been in every Grand Final of our local professional tournaments leading up to the GPL since Winter 2015 when they won their first championship as Team Corvus. While there have been management changes over the course of their championship runs, the core starters Revive, Raven, and Ciela have been mainstays while they added Ares in 2016 and EternaL in 2017.

Under the leadership of their coach Leonard “OMO” Loh, Sovereign has built themselves up to be a strong contender to Resurgence’s dominance and look to prevent a third consecutive championship run for the reigning champions and return to the GPL themselves. They are no slouches in the regional and international scene as well, with coach OMO and support Charles ‘Kra’ Teo having made waves in the recent Global All-Star Event in North America. Sovereign may very well be Resurgence’s kryptonite, having defeated them all 3 times they faced in the Group Stages (2 regular season matches, 1 tiebreaker).

It remains to be seen if Resurgence will be able to come up with an answer for the Grand Finals, but we can be sure that exciting matches will ensue when these rivals clash.
