How Team Whales rotate aggressively, according to InSomnus
Every team has their own play style in the ongoing PUBG Mobile Professional League Malaysia/Singapore Spring Split 2021 (PMPL MY/SG Season 3). And Team Whales, well, let's just say they love getting those kills. In the Weekday 1 matches last week, Team Whales were the only team in the top 5 rankings without any Chicken Dinners; it was thanks to their consistent decent placements and high kill volume that kept them afloat that high.

Of course, Team Whales didn't just run and gun every team they stumble upon. It's a mix between tactical and skilful CQC (close-quarters combat) gameplay that scored them this many kills, and thanks to Team Whales' scouter, Sean "InSomnus" Tee Yau Terng, we have a glimpse behind how an aggressive team like Team Whales rotate to secure their kills.
"Gathering information is most important when doing rotations (moving from one place to another)," said Insomnus. He explained that as an aggressive team wanting to rake in kills, they will look at the killboard (to keep track of which players or teams have been eliminated) to find out which team has fewer members or in the middle of a gunfight, so they can decide whether to push for kills or not while rotating. "If they're having an intense fight, we can probably third-party (ambush) them and clean them out. And if the team has fewer players, we can choose to push them while entering the safe zone."
Since information is vital to the team's success, it would also be wise to know who Team Whales will be up against when attacking. But, knowing that they don't see the same way the audience do in the livestream, how exactly will they know who they're battling?
"Drop spots for every team are pretty much the same," InSomnus elaborated, adding that every team has this knowledge from participating in scrims. However, if the plane's flight path deviates far from their favourite looting area, some teams may change their usual spots and opt for somewhere closer or safer. Nevertheless, based on this intel, Team Whales will figure out where nearby teams are and deduce who's fighting who before they make their move.
