LOS ANGELES – August 4th, 2020: The 16 teams from the East and West Leagues of PUBG MOBILE World League (PMWL) Season Zero who have qualified for the Finals from August 6th to August 9th have been determined. Following three thrilling weeks of East and West League play, the final Super Weekend concluded on Sunday and the coveted World League Points have been counted, revealing the 32 teams heading into the final phase of the $850,000 online global season.

Qualcomm Technologies, the world’s leading wireless technology innovator and a driving force behind the development, launch, and expansion of 5G and mobile gaming innovation is the official title sponsor of PMWL.

 

After 3 weeks of action packed matches, the regular League Play of PMWL Season Zero is closed with some real nail-biter, where until the very last team standing it was not certain which team would come out on top. In PMWL East, BTR was able to clutch the last map and overtake Box Gaming from the 1st spot. In PMWL West Loops Esports showed why they won PMPL Americas and have established themselves as the strongest team till now.

 

Overall leaderboard for West and East:

PMWL Season Zero, a newly introduced PUBG MOBILE global esports program began on July 11th. Due to the global pandemic, the PMWL was changed to an online only format, with 20 teams joining World League East and 20 teams joining World League West. Following three weeks of competition, the 20 teams have been whittled down to the best 16 from each league, who will battle to be crowned the PMWL Season Zero champions of East and West.

About PUBG MOBILE:

PUBG MOBILE is based on PLAYERUNKNOWN’S BATTLEGROUNDS, the phenomenon that took the world of interactive entertainment by storm in 2017. Up to 100 players parachute onto a remote island to battle in a winner-takes-all showdown. Players must locate and scavenge their own weapons, vehicles and supplies, and defeat every player in a visually and tactically rich battleground that forces players into a shrinking play zone.
