The regular season of VCL MY/SG Split 1 has come to an end, and the playoff bracket is now set.
MALAYSIA/SINGAPORE – As the dust settles, it is now time to gear up for the playoffs, where six VCL MY/SG Split 1 teams will battle it out for the trophy and claim their share of the grand prize of MYR100,000 (~US$22,530), beginning on Wednesday, March 8.
Enigma Gaming and Bleed Esports, two teams that have been highly regarded throughout the season, have emerged as the top-ranked sides. Both teams boast an impressive record of 6-1, but Enigma Gaming managed to edge out Bleed Esports by winning the tie-breaker at the end of the season while also handing Ngô “crazyguy” Anh and his team their only defeat.

For the bottom two teams, Kizuna Esports and Team Path, the Split 1 journey may have come to an end, but they will still have a chance to redeem themselves in the Relegation/Promotion stage. KZ had the opportunity to make it to the playoffs prior to their final matches, but they fell at the final hurdle against Enigma Gaming. On the other hand, Path finished rock bottom, securing just one win out of their seven matches, which came against Louvre in a 2-1 victory.
As the playoffs bracket is now set, fans can look forward to thrilling upper-bracket semi-final matchups between Enigma Gaming and Todak, as well as Bleed Esports and X10 Esports. Additional news includes the departure of Mathanraj “theDoctorr” Munisparan from Enigma Gaming and the subsequent addition of Ayrton “artn” Soh to the team’s roster for their final two regular season matches.
While the top four teams are fighting it out in the upper bracket, the fifth and sixth-placed teams, Louvre and Hey! Yakiniku, await their opponents in the lower bracket semi-finals, scheduled for Thursday. These two teams round out the progressive teams with 3-4 and 2-5 win-loss scores, respectively.
As previously mentioned, Kizuna Esports and Team Path will receive a direct invite to the Relegation/Promotion stage, where they will be joined by two additional teams from the open qualifiers.
