PUBG Mobile Americas Pro League (aka PMPL Americas) features 20 teams from North America and Latin America competing for a $50,000 first-place prize, with the top eight teams qualifying for the PUBG Mobile World League Championship. At the start of the second week of action, 20 teams played through Map 30 of 80 scheduled games. Loops, an eSports team from Brazil, tops the PUBG Mobile Americas Pro League leaderboard with 314 points. B4 eSports and Wildcard Gaming are right behind in the chase pack.
PUBG Mobile recently celebrated its second birthday. Tencent, the creator of PUBG, intended to host a live event, but moved the series online due to the coronavirus outbreak.
The top eight teams from the PUBG Pro League Americas will advance to the World League Season Zero by joining the West League. More than $850,000 in cash prizes will be awarded in the PUBG World League Season Zero.
The Americas region is split between North America, Latin America, and Brazil. Teams qualified by placing in the PUBG Mobile Club Open prior to the pandemic, with six teams from North America, five teams from Latin America, and four teams from Brazil. They filled out the final five teams from round-robin qualifiers and PUBG league play from various other eSports teams.
All teams in the PMPL Americas will min-cash for $2,000. The top-heavy event includes a first-place prize worth $50,000 and a second-place prize worth $25,000.
PMPL Americas Week 2 Highlights
After the first day of action in Week 2, two Brazilian teams top the PUBG Pro League leaderboard, with Loops eSports and B4 eSports out in front.
B4 won four chicken dinners, but they’re only in second place with 293 points. B4 had a lower kill points (119 vs. 136 kills by Loops), which is why they’re stuck in second place.
Loops leads with two victories and chicken dinners, but they lead all teams in kills with 136.
American pro squad Wildcard Gaming secured three chicken dinners, and they’re holding down third place overall with 114 kills.
