Mazy on his live stream shared his thoughts on the BGMS Season 2 points system
Mazy, while speaking to his viewers on his live stream, spoke about which teams will have an advantage with the newly introduced points system and why it is important for teams to change their drop strategies.
“No one will contest solo drops in tournaments, as the teams securing a finish in the first zone will be awarded 2 points for each finish. Teams will no longer use split drop strategies and there will be a lot of chaos in the first zone as teams will be targeting solo players for finish points. Mazy also predicts that teams will be willing to take drop fights to secure more points," said Mazy
According to the new points system revealed by Nodwin Gaming for BGMS Season 2, teams securing a finish in the first zone will be awarded 2 points for each finish. This will be the only change in the points system.
