It looks like TV is still the platform of choice for a lot of esports fans. eGG Network announced today that during the last major PUBG Mobile tournament, the PUBG Mobile World League: Season Zero (PMWL:S0) East recorded peak concurrent viewers of 233,000 with a total of 1.46 million unique viewers over the 5-week period in Malaysia. This was more than the combined English viewership of the PMWL East on the tournament’s official streams on other platforms!

Throughout the tournament duration, Astro Channel 800, eGG Network, had an average viewership of 146K, peaking at 233K concurrent viewers, with over 1.46 million unique viewers. This news comes on the back of the PMWL Finals breaking its own viewership records.

“We’re glad that PMWL was a big hit globally. We want to thank fans in Malaysia for tuning in to the tournament on eGG Network, as well as fans in the other countries where the channel is broadcasted. Having PUBG MOBILE esports on TV along with other online platforms ensures that we can reach as many fans as possible around the globe,” said Gaga Li, Esports Head of PUBG MOBILE Southeast Asia.

With PMWL:S0 East being such a hit with the Malaysian crowd, we can expect to see a lot more PUBG Mobile tournaments broadcasted on the eGG Network TV channel in the future.

Just when we thought we knew what to expect, League Play Week 2 of the PUBG Mobile World League (PMWL) Spring Split 2020 Season Zero East Division gave us a few unexpected twists that brought both joy and despair for its fans.

Here are the full lineup of teams who advanced to Super Weekend Week 2:

In a shocking turn of events, Yoodo Gank (Malaysia) failed to make it to Super Weekend 2, along with Nova GodLike (India), Morph Team (Indonesia) and NoChanceTeam (Mongolia). This is the first time that the Malaysian and Mongolian teams didn't secure enough points to reach the top 16, the former missing merely two points to reach the bare minimum of 16th place.

Yoodo Gank performed reasonably enough in terms of kill volume, bagging 27 eliminations that tower over half of the participating teams. However, it was the lack of Winner Winner Chicken Dinners (WWCDs) and four "too soons" (bowing out too early in the bottom six) that weighed down their rankings. With no chance to maintain their current fourth place in the Super Weekend, the next League Play is more crucial than ever if they want to guarantee a spot in the League Finals.

On the other hand, after placing 13th in League Play Week 1, Team Secret made a comeback this time by surging upwards to second place with 95 points. With a healthy helping of two WWCDs and 38 kills, the renowned esports team need only replicate their League Play Week 2 success to soar higher in the Super Weekend standings.

The PMWL 2020 East Super Weekend returns tomorrow and the weekend (24 - 26 July) at 8PM (GMT +8). Catch the PUBG Mobile world event on eGG Network TV channel, or if you're an online user, Facebook and YouTube. Be sure to follow eGG Network on Facebook for more PMWL 2020 East coverage.

The inaugural Super Weekend of the PUBG Mobile World League (PMWL) Spring Split 2020 Season Zero East Division has come and gone like the winds of Ghost of Tsushima (too out of place?). If there's anything we learnt from last weekend's action, it's that gameplay displayed during League Play isn't always the best indicator of the teams' true performances.

In contrast to their standings in League Play, RRQ Athena and Orange Rock seemingly swapped places during Super Weekend 1 - the Thai team took over the lead with an insane 99 kill volume and two Winner Winner Chicken Dinners (WWCDs), while the latter settled for eighth place. Right on RRQ's heels are Indonesian powerhouse Bigetron RA - who managed to stay level-headed and maintain their consistency - and the champions of PMPL South Asia Spring Split 2020, GXR Celtz, placing second and third, respectively.

On the Malaysian side, Yoodo Gank is the first and only team to bag a whopping total of three WWCDs, not to mention that they retrieved those dinners three matches in a row on Super Weekend Day 1. Although the local favourites couldn't replicate the same awesome magic, Yoodo Gank still placed fourth but playing well enough. On the other hand, Team Secret stayed in 13th place, as they did during League Play. Despite their low placement, Team Secret's potential glimmered twice when they achieved top 3 and getting as many as six kills in two rounds. Time will tell if the BiuBiu-helmed squad will find their footing on time and stick to it for the League Finals from 6 - 9 August.

The PMWL 2020 East League Play continues tomorrow and Wednesday (21 and 22 July) at 8PM (GMT +8). Catch the PUBG Mobile esports thrill on eGG Network TV channel, plus Facebook and YouTube. Be sure to follow eGG Network on Facebook for more PMWL 2020 East coverage.

Yoodo Campus Esports Championship (KEK) Semester 3 Grand Finals

After six weeks of competition, the collegiate esports tournament of Yoodo KEK 3 is finally coming to an end. The best Mobile Legends: Bang Bang and Call of Duty: Mobile student teams of each state will lock horns with each other for bragging rights around campus, as well scholarships and the lion's share of the RM50,000 Grand Finals prize pool.

The Yoodo KEK 3 Grand Finals begins this weekend (18 - 19 July), with the thrill being streamed online on Yoodo and MyGameOn’s Facebook pages.

Onwards to the first Super Weekend of the PUBG Mobile World League (PMWL) Spring Split 2020 Season Zero East Division! After two days of high intensity League Play (14 - 15 July), here are the top 16 teams who will be battling for a spot in the Finals for the first time:

Unfortunately, for Morph Team (Indonesia), U Level Up (Taiwan), Free Style (Pakistan) and Nova GodLike (India), they didn't manage to secure a spot in the top 16 and will be missing out on this week's Super Weekend. Although they won't be able to earn any points to enter the Finals, they can make full use of the extra free time they have on their hands and regain their footing to progress to the next Super Weekend.

As for the qualified teams of PMWL 2020 East Super Weekend, Orange Rock are currently leading the fray with 122 points, after overtaking League Play Day 1 leaders, NoChanceTeam, who are now in fourth place. Close behind Orange Rock are - in descending order - crowd favourites Bigetron RA and BOX Gaming, who secured 114 and 103 points, respectively.

The pair of Malaysian teams have been performing similar in vein to yin and yang, with Yoodo Gank and Team Secret placing 6th and 13th, respectively. However, both teams managed to secure one Winner Winner Chicken Dinner each, and Yoodo Gank got the top 3 spot in two matches, bumping up their standings. Time will tell if Malaysia's PUBG Mobile titans will be able to adapt to the meta in time, but we wish them nothing but the best!

Catch the first ever PMWL 2020 East Super Weekend from tomorrow (17 July) onwards until Sunday (19 July), 8PM (GMT +8). The action will be broadcast LIVE on the eGG Network TV channel, as well as Facebook and YouTube. Be sure to follow eGG Network on Facebook for more PMWL 2020 East coverage.

The Opening Weekend of the PUBG Mobile World League (PMWL) Spring Split 2020 Season Zero East Division ended as quickly as it began, which was held over the weekend (11 - 12 July). But, the good news is, the excitement for PMWL 2020 East will resume again, from tomorrow onwards!

Based on the standings of the PMWL 2020 East Opening Weekend, here are the confirmed groupings of the 20 participating teams in League Play:

Group A

Bigetron RA
Box Gaming
No Chance Team
Free Style

Group B

Orange Rock
Morph Team
Valdus The Murder

Group C

Yoodo Gank
U Level Up
GXR Celtz
Nova Esports

Group D

RRQ Athena
Team Secret
Reject Scarlet
TSM Entity

Group E

King of Gamers Club

Points accrued from the Opening Weekend will not contribute to the teams' overall standings in PMWL 2020 East, and were merely used to determine group placements in League Play. However, the competition starts getting serious as we enter the three-week league phase tomorrow (14 July), comprising of two segments: League Play (every Tuesday and Wednesday) and Super Weekend (every Friday and weekend).

Two days of League Play will be held every week, with the top 16 teams progressing to each week's three-day Super Weekend - this process repeats itself every week. Points earned during Super Weekend are crucial, because it'll determine which 16 teams will advance to the League Finals. So, it would cost dearly for the bottom four teams that fail to qualify for Super Weekend, because they won't be able to collect the necessary points to enter the Finals.

PMWL 2020 East continues tomorrow, with the League Finals concluding the global competition on 9 August. The East division will be broadcast on the eGG Network TV channel, but Internet users can also catch the thrill on Facebook and YouTube.
