PMGC S0 League Stage W1: Weekday Recap, Super Weekend Preview

The first two days of the PUBG Mobile Global Championship Season 0 concluded last night, with 16 teams taking a break today to prepare for the long Super Weekend starting tomorrow. It’s been refreshing to finally see both eastern and western teams facing off against each other after the past few months of regional-only tournaments. And based on the results of the weekdays, it looks like the two regions are evenly matched.

Bigetron RA (BTR RA) finished in first place last night thanks to their superb day 2 performance – the team scored three out of the day’s six possible Chicken Dinners! After a quiet start to the week, it looks like they have warmed up sufficiently for the first Super Weekend. It’s still too early to tell who’s going to dominate the tournament, but history has shown us that BTR RA rarely ever lets us down. They’re definitely one of the teams to keep an eye out for.

Loops Esports – the Brazilian powerhouse, that won the PMPL Fall Split 2020 Americas Finals and finished 2nd at PMWL S0 West, might not be talked about much in this side of the world but their consistent weekday performances speak for themselves. Only 7 points behind BTR RA, they are one of the favourites to watch this weekend.

Futbolist – winners of the PMWL S0 West, the squad finished 3rd place this weekday. While relatively low scoring in terms of kills, the team finished top 5 in six of their eight rounds, showing that the game can also be won without being hyper-aggressive. Definitely not to be slept on, as their past achievements show that they’re capable of being the best.

Aerowolf Limax – another Indonesian representative, the first runner up of the PMPL 2020 Fall Split SEA (right behind fellow countrymen BTR RA) show that they’re still on form for this tournament. While they didn’t score any Chicken DInners, they placed high in most of Top 4 in most of their matches but struggled in the ones where they didn’t. Definitely not a team to sleep on.

A7 – the second Brazilian representative, had a decent performance with one Chicken Dinner per day. Though the team has only been slowly rising in smaller tournaments, 5th place for the weekdays is a good sign of things to come from this young squad. Let’s see if they have what it takes to hang with the big boys tomorrow.

Team Secret started day 1 with a bang, with back-to-back Chicken Dinners, but failed to repeat their performance the following day. Secret has yet to impress when it comes to tournaments with teams from outside Malaysia/Singapore but with the recent switch in their lineup (Rex in, BiuBiu out), could this be the tournament where they break out of their comfort zone? This relatively new composition has a yet to be determined skill ceiling, but all hopes are uHigh (get it?) as they are the only Malaysian team at PMGC. Let’s see how they fare this weekend.

Four Angry Men (4AM), and Nova Esports round up the remaining top 8, with only 2 points separating the two Chinese teams. With a middle of the pack performance during the weekdays, one might think they’re taking it easy until the Super Weekends begin – a solid strategy since Super Weekend points are all that matters anyway.

Speaking of Super Weekend, here are the top 16 weekday teams who will be competing this Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

For the remaining teams who didn’t make it, they still have 3 more weeks to step up their game. Unfortunately, because only the Super Weekend points, they’ll have a lot of catching up to do. Which team are you excited to see tomorrow? We’ll be rooting for our countrymen, of course! Go Team Secret!
