  • Bigetron and Illuminate dominate the competition on day 1.
  • Both teams have taken a decent lead after 5 games. 

Day 1 of the first week of play at the PMPL SEA vs South Asia Scrims saw Indonesian champions, Bigetron show their opposition that they still are the team to beat. With Groups A and B in action, 3 teams from SEA were in action including Bigetron RA, Morph Team and Illuminate the Murder. 

SEA Teams Outclass their Opponents

With 5 matches being played out, both Bigetron and Illuminate occupy the top two spots on the table on the tops at the end of the day. Both teams dominated the day’s play picking up the highest frags and the highest placement points as BTR finished with 36 kills and Illuminate with 35 in just 5 games. Both teams also snagged one chicken dinner each and have separated themselves from the rest of the pack with sizable leads. 

Meanwhile, the three South Asian sides who had some luck were Team IND, UMumba and INES, all of whom managed one chicken dinner each. While just 5 matches is too early to make definite statements, it seems that South Asian teams are still lagging behind teams from SEA in terms of their ability to show the same level of aggression. However, with Indian favorites TSM-Entity still left to play on days 2 and 3, only time will tell how much teams from the region have grown since the Fall Split.
