How teams have performed during the PMGC 2020 Finals day 3
At the end of day 1, Klas Digital Athletics climbed to the top and stayed here even during the end of day 2. However, during day 3, the team went down to fourth place on the leaderboard, overtaken by 4AM, ZEUS ESPORTS, and Nova Esports.
Indonesian fan favorites Bigetron RA had a bad start, ending day 1 at 16th place in the overall standings. During day 2, the team bounced back, picked up a chicken dinner, and climbed to fifth place on the leaderboard. Unfortunately, teams like ZEUS ESPORTS, Nova Esports, and 4AM managed to beat Bigetron RA in the overall standings.
At the end of day 1, ZEUS ESPORTS placed 14th in the overall standings. Day 2 saw the team climb to 8th place after picking up a good amount of kill points and today was ZEUS ESPORTS’ day. The team managed to pick up a chicken dinner and gathered enough points to tie for the top position with 4AM. ZEUS also got the highest total damage and kills for the day.
While Tencent’s original plan was for the players to compete in the Coca-Cola Arena in Dubai, UAE, three players tested positive for COVID-19 and had to be quarantined. This led PUBG Mobile to go with their backup plan of having players play in isolation in their own hotel rooms. More matches have been added to the finals to give players who were lagging on day 1 a chance to come back, maintaining fairness. A total of 29 matches will be played, all of which will be livestreamed on PUBG Mobile Esports’ Facebook, YouTube, and Twitch channels.
