PMWL 2020 East: Team Secret return stronger, Yoodo Gank miss shot at Super Weekend 2
Just when we thought we knew what to expect, League Play Week 2 of the PUBG Mobile World League (PMWL) Spring Split 2020 Season Zero East Division gave us a few unexpected twists that brought both joy and despair for its fans.
Here are the full lineup of teams who advanced to Super Weekend Week 2:
- Bigetron RA (Indonesia)
- Team Secret (Malaysia)
- RRQ Athena (Thailand)
- King of Gamers Club (Thailand)
- Valdus Esports (Thailand)
- BOX Gaming (Vietnam)
- GXR Celtz (India)
- MegaStars (India)
- TeamIND (India)
- Orange Rock (India)
- TSM Entity (India)
- SynerGE (India)
- T1 (South Korea)
- REJECT Scarlet (Japan)
- Free Style (Pakistan)
- U Level Up (Taiwan)
In a shocking turn of events, Yoodo Gank (Malaysia) failed to make it to Super Weekend 2, along with Nova GodLike (India), Morph Team (Indonesia) and NoChanceTeam (Mongolia). This is the first time that the Malaysian and Mongolian teams didn't secure enough points to reach the top 16, the former missing merely two points to reach the bare minimum of 16th place.
Yoodo Gank performed reasonably enough in terms of kill volume, bagging 27 eliminations that tower over half of the participating teams. However, it was the lack of Winner Winner Chicken Dinners (WWCDs) and four "too soons" (bowing out too early in the bottom six) that weighed down their rankings. With no chance to maintain their current fourth place in the Super Weekend, the next League Play is more crucial than ever if they want to guarantee a spot in the League Finals.
On the other hand, after placing 13th in League Play Week 1, Team Secret made a comeback this time by surging upwards to second place with 95 points. With a healthy helping of two WWCDs and 38 kills, the renowned esports team need only replicate their League Play Week 2 success to soar higher in the Super Weekend standings.
