by December 5, 2019 0 comments

The PMCO Fall Split 2019 came to a conclusion a couple of days ago and the tournament saw an amazing response from fans and audience. India’s Entity Gaming secured a top 5 finish. This is the first time an Indian team secured such a high position in any form of esports. Riding on the success of PMCO, Tencent announced their big plans for PUBG Mobile esports in 2020. 

For one, the company pledged $5million for the PUBG Mobile esports tournaments for next year. James Yang, Director of PUBG Mobile, gave an overview of what the game’s esports league will look like in 2020. It will follow a pyramid structure, with Campus Championship at the bottom for amateur players. The PMCO and the Pro League will cater to pro and semi-pro players. Both of these tournaments will be country level tournaments. Next comes the Regional Pro League, where the top players from the respective regions will compete against one another. The Pro League for Southeast Asia had already been announced a month ago. At the PMCO Fall Split, the countries for Pro League SEA were announced which are Indonesia, Thailand, Vietnam and Malaysia. Yang also announced the Pro League for South Asia and Americas as well.  

Further above the pyramid is the PUBG Mobile World League, which will see the best Regional teams compete against one another in two splits, one of which will take place in May and the other in October. Sitting at the top is the PUBG Mobile World Championships, which is the most prestigious tournament of all and will see the top teams throughout the world competing against one another. 

The details on how the $5million prize pool will be distributed along the tournaments have not been revealed as of yet, but we can expect them sometime soon before the PUBG Mobile esports season starts in 2020.
