PUBG MOBILE Pro League (PMPL) Americas Season 1 will take place from June 6th to 28th and will move to an online-only format following concerns surrounding COVID-19 and the health and safety of players and fans. The new schedule, which will be run in by Tencent in partnership with ESL, will also see the brand-new Scrims – an additional format which has been added to each PMPL region to warm up viewers and pro-players ahead of the regular season. PMPL Americas Scrims will start on May 7th offering matches for four days per week until May 31st with new gameplay.
The PUBG MOBILE Pro League (PMPL) was revealed earlier this year as an additional pro-level to the official PUBG MOBILE 2020 Esports program. The new pro-level layer allows teams to compete for a significant slice of the overall $5 million USD prize pool this year. The PMPL takes place across four regions – Southeast Asia, EMEA, South Asia and Americas (North and South America).
The PUBG MOBILE Pro League 2020 in South Asia is currently in full swing with Scrims taking place. Introduced to provide fans with even more content and teams with an opportunity to hone their skills ahead of the regular season, PMPL Americas Scrims will start on May 7th with ten teams from North America and ten teams from South America. Competitions will be broadcasted four days a week until May 31st with a daily prize pool up for grabs.
To keep things even more interesting, PUBG MOBILE has also introduced a new feature, the “On Fire Card”. Each team can use the “On Fire Card” once per day during weekend competitions only. By using the card, teams can choose to either double their kill points or gain 50% more placement points.
“In order to ensure the safety of everyone, which is of paramount importance to us, we have decided to completely reimagine the first season of the PMPL Americas as an online competition,” said James Yang, Director of PUBG MOBILE Global Esports, Tencent Games. “While this has not been a decision we’ve taken lightly, we do think it also generates new opportunities and exciting avenues for teams to gain even more exposure, while enjoying an improved format and quality, with a new exciting twist to it!”
This year PUBG MOBILE completed the structure for the global year-long esports program. The robust esports ecosystem saw the PMPL introduced to add an additional layer of competition. The program now supports players of all levels from amateur to semi-pro and pro across multiple countries and regions ensuring a clear path for players to rise through the ranks. Top teams from the PMPLs will qualify for the PUBG MOBILE World League (PMWL) which will most likely be delayed due to concerns surrounding the pandemic and may even get a chance to compete in the World Championship, the most prestigious event of the PUBG MOBILE esports program which takes place in December and carries a substantial portion of the $5 million USD prize pool.
