League Play for PMWL East Season Zero kicked off today. For the next 3 weeks, a total of 20 teams will compete as the top 16 will look to qualify for Super Weekend. There were many ups and downs today on the leaderboard, with TSM Entity starting the day off at the bottom half of the leaderboard in the first two matches but found some redemption through their performance by placing 4th during Match 3. However, the Indian fan favourites ended the day at the 15th place in PMWL East.
Overall Standings of PMWL East
While Orange Rock maintained their position at the top with a Chicken Dinner in Match 2 and placing 3rd in Match 5, board leaders Bigetron RA fell behind in the first two matches, finishing at 11th and 10th place respectively. The team bounced back to win a Chicken Dinner in Match 3, but ended the day with an overall standing in 7th place.
FreeStyle, consisting of Black, Baba, Malik, Kashooft, Fuhusturucuu and Motu missed PMWL Opening Weekend as the Pakistani government had banned PUBG MOBILE temporarily. However, they were present for Day 1 of PMWL East League Play where they placed 5th in the first match taking out players from RCS and 6th in Match 3 and ended the day with an impressive 9th place standing. Whether or not the team is able to play for the whole duration of PMWL East League Play is yet to be seen.
