Below are a list of all participating teams and their winnings
A Consistent Performance
League Champions BTR RA have been putting up a show ever since the start of the season. They have consistently ranked first in the Opening Weekend, to the League plays all the way up to the Finals.
Orange Rock had a slightly rockier performance; dropping from second place in the Opening Weekend to tenth place in the League Plays, before finally making it back up to second for the Finals. RRQ Athena and BOX Gaming had mostly consistent performances. RRQ Athena has had some pretty sick highlight plays throughout the League as well.
There were some obstacles for BTR RA during the finals. According to their manager, Isfan Satraia Wijaya, the Bigetron RA apartment encountered a blackout, causing them to relocate to Bigetron Alpha’s accommodations.
A New Point System for upcoming Pro and World Leagues
The PUBG Mobile Esports’ association took the opportunity to unveil a new point system during the PMWL finals. The new system will apply the following changes:
- First place: 15 points
- Second place: 12 points
- Third place: 10 points
- Fourth place: eight points
- Fifth place: six points
- Sixth place: four points
- Seventh place: two points
- Eighth to 12th place: one point
- 13th to 16th place: zero points
Kills will still individually merit one point. These changes are set to be implemented in the following PUBG Mobile World and Pro League and will continue to be in effect up to October 2020.
SEAGM’s very own Yoodo Gank had a strong Opening Weekend performance and placed third in the rankings, but that was quickly omitted after the League Plays. We all have our bad days, but rest assured we’ll all come back stronger, just like this guy says:
