With Yoodo Alliance x 4Rivals and Farang Lejund a cut above the rest after the first two days, they looked like the favourites to win the whole tournament on the final day of the PUBG Mobile Professional League MYSGPH (PMPL MYSGPH S5). After their stellar performances on days one and two, it looked like their game to lose.
First round of the day went as expected, with YA4R finishing 3rd and FRG in second. First place easily went to HomeBois who had all their members alive for the final circle. The second round started off with a big surprise as YA4R were the first to be eliminated. FRG fared much better, finishing in 5th place (overtaking YA4R on the leaderboards) but in the end, it was HomeBois that clutched their second Chicken Dinner of the day.
Round three saw YA4R winning another Chicken Dinner of the grand finals, reclaiming the top spot on the leaderboard. FRG didn't do too poorly, with a fourth-place finish. Dingoz ended second, closing the gap between them and the top spot. The fourth round went to Dingoz, who had the high ground and numbers advantage over SEM9 - putting them in second place on the overall leaderboards and a mere 10 points away from number one. The last round of the event is going to be spicy!
The winner of the whole tournament boiled down to the final round. At 23 minutes, Dingoz and YA4R found themselves getting eliminated one after another, but with FRG and HB already out of the equation, it looked like they weren't going to drop out of the top two. It boiled down to a three-way showdown between Genexus, Clutch Guerillas and MAB Esports. In the end, their superior positioning gave the team an edge over the other two teams, giving them their first Chicken Dinner of the day.
Ultimately, it was Yoodo Alliance x 4Rivals who remained on top of the leaderboards. Their superb performance throughout the whole season including the grand finals proved that they were deserving of the championship. Congratulations to PEMBURU, Appy, Rith, Vokey, Eypul and Pasha on their victory! They will be moving on to represent Malaysia at the upcoming PMPL SEA Championship, along with Dingoz, Farang Lejund, HomeBois, Genexus and RSG Malaysia. Team Secret will be present as well, for winning last season.
What a day for the boys in YA4R - they definitely deserved the win for their performances. We look forward to catching them at PMPL SEA later this year!

In anticipation of the PMPL MYSGPH S5 grand finals concluding this weekend, PUBG has made available to stream online its 4th Anniversary variety show. Filmed during the festivities a few weeks ago, the variety show stars 12 PUBG Mobile icons: Master Ramen, J Hunter, OTG, Yakuza, EmiMohamad, Soultann, FattahZie, Raa Suzuran, Miss Rose, Fiera Fendi, MunaXmoci, Nunaa, and Sharina Richie. The cast was divided into three teams of four and sent around Sunway Pyramid to complete missions in order to win prizes.
The first episode, which premiered on the 3rd of April, saw the cast shooting different coloured balloons to decide their teams. They then navigated through an obstacle course with Xiaomi smartphones and competed in challenges at the Airdrop Stations to collect nerf gun weapons and ammo, and life balloons for the final Battle Royale Challenge.
If you missed the live premiere, you can watch it below, and episodes two and three on the 17th and 24th April, respectively.
The group stage of the PUBG Mobile Professional League (PMPL) MYSGPH S5 finally came to a conclusion last week and we now have the 16 teams that will be moving on to the grand finals! But first, here’s a summary of how the teams performed.
Farang Lejund proved to be the team to beat last week as they finished top of the leaderboard with 257 points - a huge improvement over their week 2 results. With this win, they secure a spot in the top 16. RSG also showed up with a second-place finish, and end up sixth overall. Yoodo Alliance x 4Rivals finished third, which put the team as number one overall. A well-deserved spot for their amazing consistency throughout the whole league period.
Finishing at the bottom last week were EVOS ViP, Clutch Guerilla, Team HAQ and ALMIGHTY. Unfortunately for HAQ and ALM, they won’t be making it to the grand final week. Joining them with the farewell are Team SMG and KHI Esports - while they had some moments of brilliance throughout the league, it wasn't enough to keep them in the tournament.
The teams attending the PMPL MYSGPH S5 Grand Finals:
The PMPL MYSGPH S5 Grand Finals will be held on April 15th - 17th, 6 PM onwards. Make sure to catch the action live on eGG Network TV, Facebook, and YouTube. Tune in to find out who will hoist the trophy this season!
What a comeback story for Genexus this weekend! After a mediocre performance in week 1 of the PUBG Mobile MYSGPH Season 5, they bounced back hard for the second week. With three Chicken Dinners and four second-place finishes, GNX wiped the floor with the competition. Well played to Biubiu, Snappie, Looyou and LoongSkr this week, let’s see if they can keep it up for the coming one.
Finishing in second place were Axis RedONE, another team that came back hard. Like GNX, they had a rough first week, and it looks like things are clicking for the team. Yoodo x Alliance 4Rivals managed third place this week, an improvement over last week, showing the team’s consistency. Dingoz dropped to fourth while Clutch Guerilla jumped to fifth. Team Secret also stepped it up this week and managed a sixth-place finish, while Geek Fam earned seventh this week. R2K, RSG and Homebois round out the rest of the top ten.
KHI also made a huge leap this week, finishing in twelfth place compared to the last spot on week one - however, they're not out of the woods yet and will need another good week to qualify for the grand final. Team SMG and ALMIGHTY have been struggling this season - things aren't looking great for them. It's unlikely we'll be seeing them in the rest of the tournament after this coming week.
PMPL MYSGPH S5 continues this week with the final leg of the group stage kicking off from tomorrow until Sunday (6-10 April, 6.45 PM GMT+8). Catch the action live on Facebook or YouTube, and replays on eGG Network TV. More info.

Following in the footsteps of the McLaren collaboration with PUBG Mobile last year, it looks like motorheads will have another reason to get excited about the game's latest update. PUBG Mobile announced that its latest team up with Lamborghini is now live and starting today, players will be able to obtain four brand new and exclusive vehicles: the track-focused Lamborghini Aventador SVJ, packed with a powerful V12 engine; the Lamborghini Estoque, an elegant and stylish four-door GT concept; the Lamborghini Super SUV Urus, which merges a super sports car with the versatility of an SUV; and one special unlockable surprise vehicle that they will have to discover. The cars will each come in two colours - one Lamborghini classic scheme and a PUBG Mobile limited-edition look.
