Team SMG’s rise to the first position
After three successful weeks of the Regular Season at the top of the table, Selangor Red Giants lost their spot to Team SMG. However, the latter failed to continue their winning streak, losing to RSG MY (1-2).
Subsequently, HomeBois earned a hard-fought victory over Red Giants (2-1), helping Team SMG (15) rise to the top of the table. After their defeat, the Giants (14) fell a point behind, costing them their position at the top of the table. HomeBois, on the other hand, continued their good run of form after gaining momentum by defeating TODAK last week.
It has also been a memorable week for the HomeBois franchise on the international scene, who began their journey in MPL Singapore with two consecutive wins over Alchemy and Bleed Esports.
TODAK yet to return to winning ways
While it was a great week for last season’s runners-up, Team SMG, defending champions TODAK, meanwhile, have dropped to the bottom half of the table. They lost five matches this season and only recorded one victory in the tournament so far. They now stand eighth on the table.
On the other hand, Team Secret have finally recorded a win, as they beat RED Esports (2-1).
