After losing 9-16 on Mirage and 16-19 on Overpass, Resurgence becomes the champion of ESEA AP Season 28 after beating Filipino side ArkAngel in the grand finals of the tournament.
As a result of this outcome, ArkAngel would become one of the two teams to get second place in ESEA in recent history after Mineski did the feat a while ago. A Filipino team is yet to win the ESEA Asia-Pacific post-season playoffs.
ArkAngel was won already the fourth edition of the Mogul Arena Shootout and is actively participating in local and regional tournaments at the moment.
Arkangel was the top-seeded team in the group stage and was considered to be one of the favorite teams to win the entire tournament as well.
