PMPL SEA Championship Fall League Stage: The scoreboard after Week 2

The league stage of the PMPL SEA Championship has a complicated format. In each of the three weeks, teams earn Bonus Points based on their rankings in that week. 

The team with the most Bonus Points after all three weeks will advance to the PMPL SEA Championship Grand Finals. Additionally, these Bonus Points will carry over into the grand finals, meaning some teams will have a significant lead heading into the last stage of the tournament. 

The Bonus Standings after Week 2 are as follows: 

  1. The Infinity: 36 points
  2. Bacon Time: 36 points
  3. TEM Entertainment: 36 points
  4. FaZe Clan: 32 points
  5. Vampire Esports: 30 points
  6. ShineLikeDiamond: 28 points
  7. Genesis Dogma GIDS: 26 points
  8. Alter Ego LIMAX: 25 points
  9. Yoodo Alliance: 22 points

  16. Boom Esports: 11 points
  17. BN United: Seven points
  18. Box Gaming: Six points
  19. Don’t Break Dreams: Four points

Complete Thai domination at the top of the table

Over the past year, it has become pretty clear that Thailand has become one of the best regions in terms of competitiveness globally. 

That is something that has been on high display at the SEA Championship. There are five teams from Thailand in the PMPL SEA Championship – and they all occupy the top five spots in the standings. 

Tough battle at the top of the table

While the prize pool and PMGC slots will be decided on the basis of the grand finals, winning the league stage is a huge confidence boost and also grants bonus points to the teams.

Currently, The Infinity, Bacon Time, and TEM Entertainment are all tied in Bonus points with 36 each. FaZe Clan, Vampire Esports, and ShineLike Diamond are not far behind at 32, 30, and 28 points, respectively. 

It’s surely going to be an intense final week. 

Who will be eliminated in the league stage?

There are 20 teams competing in the league stage, but there are only 16 slots in the grand finals. 

At the end of the three weeks, the bottom four teams with the least Bonus Points will be eliminated. Currently, these are 4Rivals, BN United, Box Gaming, and Don’t Break Dreams. 

The competition isn’t over for them, though, as a good final week will see them through to the grand finals. All four teams have been impressive in their regional leagues and fans will definitely be hoping to see them show up in Week 3. 

Where to watch the PMPL SEA Championship League Stage Week 3? 

PMPL is being live-streamed on the official PUBG Mobile Esports Facebook, YouTube, and Tiktok channels in Vietnamese, English, Malay, Indonesian, and Thai. The final week will take place from Oct. 12 to 16. From here, the top 16 teams will advance to the grand finals from Oct. 21 to 23.
