After four weeks of exhilarating League Season and three days of Country Finals, RSG MY came out on top as the winners of PMPL MY/SG Season 3 (PUBG Mobile Professional League Malaysia/Singapore). As the champions, they will represent Malaysia in the PMPL SEA Finals Season 3 and are rewarded the US$15,000 victors cash prize. (Looks like our prediction was wrong, but hey, we were close. 😅)
The (somewhat) underdogs had a rocky start in the League Season, initially not advancing to the Country Finals up until the last Super Weekend, where they played superbly and leapt from 19th to 14th in just two days. Mad respect to RSG MY as they brought their Super Weekend 3 momentum into the Finals, kicking off with fifth place before ending their run with five Winner Winner Chicken Dinner and 92 kills (both the highest in this stage). Even fragger Kim was awarded the Finals MVP title as the cherry on top of the cake, raking in an extra US$2,000 for himself.
Aside from league champions Dingoz MPX, who placed ninth, runner-ups Geek Fam will also have the same honour as RSG MY to hoist the Jalur Gemilang (Malaysian flag) in PMPL SEA Finals Season 3, not to mention they are rewarded US$10,000 for their commendable effort in the Country Finals.
Other finalists worth highlighting include Anti Circle, Homebois, J8 Esports and EVOS ViP, who performed outstandingly well in the Country Finals and got top 6 spots. Even Doktor Internet Taugeh Ayam Esports showed tremendous promise in the League stage by placing fourth.
On the flip side, top dogs like Yoodo Gank, Team Secret and Team SMG couldn’t quite capture the magic they had that scored them seats to the PMPL SEA Finals, though the latter two performed decent enough to place seventh and eighth, respectively. This is the first time Team Secret didn’t advance to the regionals.
Up next is the higher-tier PMPL SEA Finals Season 3, which will be running from 21 – 23 May according to Liquipedia. It will feature 16 of the best PUBG Mobile professional squads in Southeast Asia, battling for bragging rights as the best team in the region as well as a share of the soon-to-be-announced prize pool. Stay tuned as more info will be revealed very soon.
But before that, RSG MY, Geek Fam, Dingoz MPX and Team Secret will be competing in the Peace Elite Asia Invitational 2021 tomorrow (27 – 29 April), battling not only the top teams in SEA, but also China, Japan and Korea, for the ¥3,000,000 prize pool.
PMPL MY/SG Season 3 began on 24 March with three weeks of League Season, followed by the Country Finals that ran from 23 – 25 April. The action was broadcast on PUBG Mobile‘s Facebook page and YouTube channel, as well as their official broadcast partner WeTV.
