The team has then maintained themselves on top of every tournament. Luxxy captains the team with Zuxxy’s role being of IGL/Sniper. Ryzen and Microboy play as rushers as the most recent addition, Liquid is expected to play as a substitute. Ryzen will be the player to watch along with Zuxxy. Even after having a rough run last weekend, the team still managed to place second in the league stage and qualify for the finals.
2. Nova Esports
Nova Esports (Formerly XQF) have already got so many achievements under their belt. The team is known for its highly aggressive performance and never disappoints in the bigger leagues. The team plays with 5 players. Jimmy leads the team with Paraboy and Coolboy being the assaulters, Order plays the role of Sniper and King supports the team.
Paraboy will be going to be the key player and will in the race of being the MVP too. Even though the team placed 8th in the league stage, expectations are high from this team with the performances they have had in previous tournaments.
3. 4 Angry Men
4 Angry Men, more commonly 4AM was among those teams who missed out on PUBG Mobile’s first global event by a very small margin. Since then the team has improved a lot and is a very strong contender for the title. 4AM are undoubtedly the best emerging team that will be heading to the PMGC finals after crowned the league champions.
Just if the team is able to show their aggression that they have shown in recent times, then we’ll be having a new world champion for sure. The team’s roster comprises Suk, Xinhe, Hasaki, QingChen with 33Svan who would be the player to watch out for in this team.
4. RRQ Athena
RRQ Athena is one of the oldest and most recognized PUBG Mobile teams in the world. Starting their journey as one of the first champions In PUBG Mobile Star Challenge 2018. They then went on becoming one of the best teams in the SEA region having won the PMPL Thailand and SEA region numerous times.
The team players switch their roles accordingly but the team is mostly led by G9 with D2E playing as a sniper, Earnny and Beer11 play the role of the attacker as Senior serves as the support to complete the team. The team ranked 3rd in the league stage and the same performance is expected from them in the finals.
5. Team Secret
Though the team is yet to perform on the Global Stage, Team Secret is one of the most consistent teams in the league. The Malaysian team has consistently maintained themselves on top of their region and have won both the Malaysian pro league Split and fall season in 2020.
The team was being led by Biubiu but after his retirement from competitive gaming, Madtoi has taken the captaincy as Uhigh and Rex play the roles of fraggers, and Ishotz plays as a sniper. During the entire league, the team showed its determination to qualify for the finals. So, it’ll be interesting to see the team’s approach in the finals.
What can you expect from the PUBG Mobile Global Championship (PMGC) Finals?
So, it’s pretty much clear that the Southeast Asian and Chinese teams will be the favorites to win the title. The competition is very high in both regions. Southeast Asian teams from Thailand, Malaysia/Singapore, Indonesia produce a great competition every year and are often regarded as some of the toughest competitors.
Western teams on the other hand will have to go through these Southeast Asian hurdles. Team Futbolist and Konina Power are among the western teams who had a good run in the league stage. But, the only drawback for the Western teams is that no team has been able to maintain themselves over the top. Teams like Cloud 9, Tempo Storm seemed to be good competitors but they didn’t manage to qualify this time.
Finally, the gameplay that these teams have shown previously shows that there’s no doubt that there will be a tough competition for winning the first season of the PUBG Mobile Global Championship. Also, watch out for the rest of the teams as surprises always await in such tournaments.
