Light, RSG working double time for title defense

Winning has a price.

For RSG PH, who won the MPL Philippines Season Nine and the ML:BB Southeast Asia Cup titles consecutively, that means having a huge target on their back for the rest of Season 10.

Make no mistake, the team is well aware of the situation which is why they doubled down on their preparation and, with a heavy heart, declined the SIBOL national team’s direct invitation to the IESF World Esports Championship qualifiers last July.

“Mas doble (yung) preparation kesa nung naging champion, kasi lahat ng teams ngayon kami na ang tinitingnan knowing na defending MPL champion kami and MSC champion,” said RSG PH roamer Dylan “Light” Catipon.

The reigning MPL Philippines Season Nine Most Valuable Player acknowledged the pressure that lies ahead but stressed that the confidence they gained in winning the MSC will be more than enough to turn back the jitters.

“Ten times ang pressure since champion, maraming nage-expect na umangat pa kami at makapag-perform sa MPL,” said the former TNC roamer.

“Yung confidence na na-gain namin knowing na natalo kami sa RRQ noon and nag-bounce back kami, napatunayan namin na kaya namin manalo internationally, hindi lang sa Pilipinas.”

“Pagbalik namin sa MPL, siguro we have the upperhand. Fortunate ‘yun para sa lahat ng players namin.”

RSG PH will open its title-retention bid in the MPL Philippines against Omega Esports – the same team that they defeated to win Season Nine – on Friday at 6:00 PM.
