The League stage of the PUBG Mobile Global Championship Season Zero (PMGC 2020) has come to an explosive finish, with China’s Four Angry Men (4AM) first worldwide PUBG Mobile debut landing them a huge victory and a US$300,000 cash prize in the League phase.
4AM ended their League run with the highest number of Chicken Dinners (eight) and the most kills (298), totaling everything up to a whopping 631 points. Defending world champions Bigetron RA placed second with five Chicken Dinners, scoring US$125,000 in prize money. Though their final ranking is a little unexpected, the Indonesian powerhouse defended the top spot the majority of the League stage before being one-upped by the Chinese squad. The apex teams are followed by RRQ Athena (runner-ups of PMPL Thailand) and Konina Power (second runner-ups of PMWL 2020 West), who bagged US$75,000 and US$50,000, respectively.
4AM is a Peacekeeper Elite (the Chinese rebranded version of PUBG Mobile) squad, having qualified for PMGC 2020 – alongside Nova XQF (eighth place) – by dominating the Peacekeeper Elite League 2020 Championship Points. They had a pretty good start by bagging fourth in Super Weekend 1, but not before they found their stride and shredded everyone in their path during the second Super Weekend, including Bigetron RA, proving they are a force to be reckoned with. Although they fumbled in Super Weekend 3, they clutched it out in the final weekend and snatched four Chicken Dinners and plenty of top 3 placements in the first two days.
However, PMGC 2020 is far from over – we still have the Grand Finals to plow through! And the conclusion of League stage means that the 16 grand finalists have been finalised, which are:
- Four Angry Men
- Bigetron RA
- RRQ Athena
- Konina Power
- Klas Digital Athletics
- Secret Jin
- Nova XQF
- Power888 KPS
- Abrupt Slayers
- Alpha7 E-sports
- Z3US Esports
- Natus Vincere
- Aerowolf LIMAX
- Team Secret
- A1 Esports
Natus Vincere and Aerowolf LIMAX pulled off a fantastic final performance that landed them seats in the PMGC 2020 Grand Finals, overthrowing Blue Bees and Godsent. A1 Esports initially didn’t qualify, but after Loops Esports were disqualified due to “unsportsmanlike behavior” in the final two Super Weekend 4 matches, the Bangladeshi team got a second chance to prove their worth.
Team Secret’s absence from Super Weekend 4 almost cost them a spot in the Grand Finals, but fortunately, thanks to Blue Bees’ or Godsent’s underwhelming performances (not so lucky for this pair though), they can bear the Malaysian flag once more in the final round.
Onward to the PMGC 2020 Grand Finals, which will be held on stage in Dubai! This marks the first time since PMCO 2019 where every team will be competing offline on such a global scale. With a US$2 million total prize pool on the line, expect high-octane PUBG Mobile esports thrills in the last round.
