The PMPL has been split into two: the league stage and the finals.
The league stage will be played for six weeks from Aug. 14 to Sept. 20. Matches will take place on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday of each week.
The top 16 teams from the league stage will advance to the finals on Sept. 25 to 27.
The teams will be split into three groups (A, B, and C) of eight teams each. These groups will be refreshed during each week of the league.
The top six teams from the previous week will be seeded into separate groups. The remaining will be drawn at random. This will happen every week.
The flow of maps during each day of the league stage is as follows.
- Game one: Erangel
- Game two: Miramar
- Game three: Sanhok
- Game four: Vikendi
- Game five: Erangel
The top 16 teams from the league will advance to the finals which will happen on Sept. 25 to 27.
The winner of the league stage will directly qualify for the SEA Finals. This team will also be joined by the top two teams of the PMPL Thailand finals.
Tencent hasn’t announced any direct qualification to the PUBG Mobile World League (PMWL) from the PMPL. Last season, the winner of the PMPL directly earned a berth at the PMWL. It’s unclear why this has happened.
The PMPL will be played using the new points system. This system makes kills more rewarding.
All matches will be live-streamed exclusively on the PUBG Mobile Thailand Facebook page. Matches will start at 2am CT on each day.
