The PUBG Mobile World Invitational East 2021 concluded earlier tonight and after a gruelling 16 rounds of intense firefights, we now have an official winner! Valdus Esports, one of Thailand's best PUBG Mobile squads, has been crowned the winners of PMWI East 2021.
Valdus won the tournament with 4 Winner Winner Chicken Dinners and 120 Kill Points, one of their best performances at a tournament yet. From the get-go, they had their foot on the gas and ended each day at the top spot. As we all know, PUBG Mobile is a game about consistency and the Thai boys have proven they have what it takes to be the best. Coming up short by 60 points were Natus Vincere, the first runner up, with 224 points. They were the only team who played well enough to be considered a close contender for the trophy. 3rd place and beyond was a huge gap in points.
Unfortunately for Indonesian and Malaysian PUBG Mobile fans, our countries didn't do so well. Bigetron Red Aliens, seemed to pick up speed as the tournament went on, but it was too little too late. They finished at 5th place with 165 points. Geek Fam looked promising on day 1, finishing at second place but dropped their placement with each day after that. They end the tournament at 12th place (132 points).

Global PUBG Mobile esports events have always been held to determine who's the best of the best across the planet, but the upcoming PUBG Mobile World Invitational (PMWI 2021) is going to be a little different than the usual offering - with a US$3 million prize pool, all in the name of charity.
Here are the staggering list of 32 top-tier teams battling in PMWI 2021:
Geek Fam (Malaysia
Bigetron RA (Indonesia)
Blacklist International (Philippines)
Valdus Esports (Thailand)
A1 Esports (Bangladesh)
DRS Gaming (Nepal)
DSGaming (South Korea)
Fanatic Zombies (United Arab Emirates)
Nasr Esports (Jordan)
Natus Vincere (Russia)
Stalwart Esports (Pakistan)
Team Myths (Algeria)
Yalla Esports (Saudi Arabia)
Zeus Esports (Mongolia)
Alpha7 Esports (Brazil)
Chivas Esports (Mexico)
Ghost Gaming (United States of America)
Gunz Esport (Iraq)
Konina Power (Kazakhstan)
Lakonostra MVP (United Kingdom)
Next Rūya Gaming (Turkey)
RTG Esports (Morocco)
Team Onyx (Georgia)
Team Queso (Argentina)
UDR Killers (Spain)
As you can already tell, PMWI 2021 will be split into two divisions, East and West, with 16 teams competing in each - it brings to mind last year's PUBG Mobile World League (PMWL 2020), due to it adopting an online-only format. Otherwise, everything else is pretty much standard, with the three-day tournament hosting five matches a day, rotating three maps: classic Erangel, sandy Miramar and tropical paradise Sanhok.
Since PMWI 2021 is a charity event that sees Tencent Games working with Gamers Without Borders, a majority of the US$3 million prize pool will be donated to charity, with every team being rewarded US$5,000 for their participation, regardless of their final placements. Nevertheless, it's always fun to see PUBG Mobile teams duking it out with each other on an international scale.
