There were many unpredictable surprises for the audience, for instance, RSG Malaysia who suddenly seized victory in PMPL MYSG S3 with a total of 196 points, just 19 points above Geek Fam. RSG’s appearance was very surprising as the team only sat in 14th place in the regular season stage. They secured 5 Winner Winner Chicken Dinner and 92 kill points more than any other team. The defending champions Team Secret had to give up their title and settle for 8th place, while the winner of Regular Season, Dingoz MPX finished in 9th position.

It’s their chance to seize glory in the world of mobile esports,” said Gaga Li, Head of PUBG Mobile SEA Esports.

Unfortunately, those teams which ranked 13th to 16th (i.e. iPhongWanted LX, JPNSEA, DMS.FV, and Yoodo Gank) will need to qualify for the next PMPL season. In order to qualify for the upcoming season of PMPL MYSG, they must restart from the PUBG MOBILE Malaysia National Championship.
The PMPL MYSG series is a competition that expands the scope of the esports ecosystem in Malaysia, especially for PUBG MOBILE scene. This competition is also a proving ground for the PUBG MOBILE esports team to be the best.
