Nova Esports win PMGC 2021

Posted by George Wong on January 23, 2022

Congratulations to Nova Esports on their first win of the year! The squad put on an immaculate performance throughout all three days of the PUBG Mobile Global Championship 2021, especially on day two when they finished with three 2nd places and one Winner Winner Chicken Dinner. While the final day wasn't the best for the squad, their massive lead from the previous day was enough to keep them on top. Nova Esports ended the tournament with a whopping 222 points, a solid 47 points over the second-place Navi.

This marks the second PMGC victory for the Chinese squad (they won PMGC 2020), who were also the winners of the Peacekeeper Elite Championship 2020 - these guys are the most dominant team in the game right now. Well played to Jimmy, Paraboy, Order, Mix6GG, qc, and King. They walk away with USD 1,530,000 - what a chunk of change!

Completing the rest of the leaderboard: we have Nigma Galaxy in 3rd, S2G Esports in 4th, and D'Xavier in 5th. Unfortunately, for Malaysian fans, our representatives, Team Secret and 4Rivals finished 12th and 14th respectively. Extremely middling performances from them despite a few top 4 placements, they're going to have to go back to the drawing board and work on some new strategies.

The biggest surprise was probably Navi who won 3 Chicken Dinners and 2 second place finishes, they showed they have what it takes to hang with the best, unfortunately, Nova Esports was in this tournament. Perhaps they'll get the trophy next time.
