PUBG Mobile Global Championship 2021 Will Now Have 40 Teams
The PUBG Mobile Global Championship 2021 is coming soon and there are still plenty of details for the year-end tournament that are still unknown. However, we now know some of the details about the PMGC 2021, including the number of teams that will be competing and more.
New PUBG Mobile Global Championship 2021 Details Revealed
This was revealed through the social media site Weibo where the official Peacekeeper Elite League account shared some information about the upcoming PUBG Mobile Global Championship 2021. Through this, we not only found out more about the PEL, but also details about the PMGC this year.
This information has only been shared by the Peacekeeper Elite League at this time, but that does not mean that it is not representative of what will happen for the rest of the world, too. After all, Peacekeeper Elite is simply the Chinese version of PUBG Mobile that is reformatted to work there.
Other than that, the general gameplay and engine are exactly the same as its predecessor, PUBG Mobile. To this point, even the competitors who are among the best players in China for Peacekeeper Elite will be part of the PUBG Mobile Global Championship 2021 this year.
Because of this, the league was able to share some information about its specific region as well as the PUBG Mobile Global Championship 2021 as a whole. In general, there are some major changes that have been made to the PMGC this year to accompany the fact that we are still in a global pandemic.
News Comes From the Peacekeeper Elite League
I will admit, first and foremost, that I do not know Chinese so this information was referenced through the DeepL translation services. As such, there is the possibility for some minor details to be incorrect, so be sure to wait for an official announcement in English regarding the PMGC 2021 for all of this to be certain.
With that disclosure out of the way, what we know about the PUBG Mobile Global Championship 2021 at this time is that it will be taking place at the tail end of next month. It is the single most important PUBG Mobile tournament of the entire year as the best teams around the world compete against one another.
Normally, there are only so many teams that are involved in the grand finals of the season, however, in this announcement, we found out that the PUBG Mobile Global Championship 2021 is being expanded. There are now going to be 40 teams from around the world that will be competing in total.
These 40 teams will be fighting for the right to be called the very best PUBG Mobile battle royale team in the entire world, earn that championship trophy, and walk away with a whole lot of prize money. The increase in the number of players and teams in the championship can be attributed to the current pandemic.
China Will Now Have Different Qualifications for the PMGC
Part of this and how the teams are being selected for the event are being changed, likely due to the cancellation of the Peacekeeper Elite Champion Finals that were going to happen this year. The event was cancelled and has now led to some major changes for the PUBG Mobile Global Championship 2021 in the process.
The problem with this is that this means one less major tournament for the Peacekeeper Elite League, which directly affects the PMGC. To deal with this, the original annual points rule will remain unchanged, meaning that there are only two teams that will represent China in the Global Championship this year.
The top two teams from the PEL will move on to be one of the 40 teams in the event and compete for the chance to win it all. However, there is a change that is happening here that could affect these two teams. Since the grand finals were cancelled in China, the top team, Tong Jia Bao was immediately chosen for the PMGC.
They are already going to be in the finals event, which puts one team for China there. Since this is happening, there are now going to be three teams that are going to be invited for this region alone to the Global Championship. From here, the top two teams in terms of points will also join Tong Jia Bao in the PMGC this year.
If TJB happens to be one of the top two teams in the PEL at the end of the season, then the third-place team will be selected to join the other two in the Global Championship. We will not find out, though, who the top teams are from China, though, until late next month.
When the PMGC 2021 Event Will Happen
The final season of the PEL this year will begin later this week on October 21 and run for more than a month until November 28, 2021. Immediately after that season has concluded, the three teams from China will be selected and quickly transition to compete in the PUBG Mobile Global Championship 2021.
The PMGC will begin on November 30, 2021, and will run for a couple of months until the grand finals in January 2022. It will be an intense competition, now featuring 40 of the best teams around the world. The prize pool is a massive one, containing $6 million USD in money being given away among these teams.
This is the largest event that has ever happened for PUBG Mobile in the several years it has been around now, making for a huge final note for the game. We would not be surprised, after all, if the esports scene shifts to PUBG New State next year as that will be the hottest battle royale title on the market then.
