PUBG Mobile esports: New point system, plus other announcements
It's still so surreal knowing that Bigetron RA has once again claimed the world championship title in last night's PUBG Mobile World League 2020 Spring Split East Division Season Zero. But, that's not the only big news that came out of the international tournament, with plenty of updates announced for the future of PUBG Mobile esports.
The biggest change that was revealed for PUBG Mobile esports, is the new point system. Each Winner Winner Chicken Dinner currently grants 20 points, but from the next season onwards, it'll instead be lowered to 15 points, with subsequent placements following suit in terms of having a lower value. The final punch in the gut applies to the bottom four spots - teams who get knocked out too soon will have zero points next season, and they would need to make up for their early exit with some kills, lest they walk away empty-handed.
This, in turn, places more emphasis for players to score killing points - which remain at 1 point - and that relying on good placements isn't the only way to win the championship anymore.
Other PUBG Mobile esports news that were shared include the latest milestone in player registration for next season's PUBG Mobile Club Open (PMCO), with as many as 80,000 total teams signing up for the upcoming league. Speaking of numbers, the Ban Pan system - PUBG Mobile's anti-cheating measures that was launched earlier this year - has banned and disqualified 531 teams in the qualifiers for Fall Split. Sounds like the system works!
On top of that, the full list of dates for each regions' respective PMCO and PUBG Mobile Professional League (PMPL) was unveiled, as well as all the invited teams for each series.
And last but not least, a huge PUBG Mobile event is coming soon this year, although we weren't told what it was just yet. However, we don't have to wait long to find out, with the reveal happening on 24 August. And we'll be sure to update you guys on what it is the moment it's announced.
