The 16 teams who will play in the PMGC 2022 Grand Finals have now been determined following the end of the PMGC 2022 League Stage. Two invited teams joined 46 teams from regional tournaments for the league stage of the competition. After completing the League Stage’s three divisions, 14 teams will advance to the championship round, while the remaining teams will be eliminated. These 14 groups will join two teams invited straight to the Grand Finals to compete for the PUBG Mobile 2022 esports championship and the lion’s share of the $4,000,000 USD in prize money. Jakarta, Indonesia’s Battle Arena, will host the LAN Finals for the PMGC 2022 from January 6 to 8th, 2023.
Schedule of PMGC 2022 Grand Finals
PUBG Mobile Global Championship 2022 Grand Finals may begin, thanks to the successful completion of the Last Chance phase on December 4. Eighteen matches involving the 16 teams mentioned above are set for the weekend of January 6-8. This is the tournament’s third year, and the winner will be the team that finishes with the most points. All the action from the PUBG Mobile Esports Grand Finals will be streamed live on the organization’s official YouTube, Facebook, and TikTok channels.
PMGC 2022: What has happened so far?
On November 10, PMGC 2022’s League stage officially kicked off. In this round, 48 teams from all over the world competed in 24 nail-biting matches (split into three groups: red, green, and yellow). The top three teams in each group advanced straight to the finals, while the remaining teams advanced to the Survival Stage. Between November 30 and December 2, the Survival Stage was held, with each group playing the other once.
There was 24 teams total, and the matches went down to the wire before the top 16 advanced to the Last Chance round. Named appropriately, the Last Chance was the final opportunity for the 16 eligible teams to secure their spot in the PMGC 2022 Finals. On December 3 and 4, the matches for this round were played. No matter how hard every team tried, only the top five after Day 2 advanced to the Grand Finals. The 14 teams who made it this far will be under intense scrutiny as supporters hope they can repeat their success from earlier in the competition.
Teams To Watch At The PMGC Survival Stage
Group Stage saw many surprise and impressive showings, particularly in PMGC’s “Group of Death,” Green. A few notable squads remain in the green division.
Let’s kick things off with Bacon Time and Vampire eSports. These two teams are among the favourites to win the whole PMGC, as Thailand is presently one of the best areas in PUBG Mobile esports. This is true; in August, Vampire Esports took first place at the PMWI event in Saudi Arabia for PUBG Mobile. Although they had hoped to advance directly to the Grand Finals from their groups, neither team could defeat the South Asian champions GodLike Stalwart or the incumbent two-time global winners Nova Esports. Both of their finishes were in the bottom half of Group Green.
Bigetron RA is another formidable opponent. Even though they tried hard, the Indo team only qualified for the PMGC in 2022. But with power twins Zuxxy and Luxxy, years of expertise, and a large and devoted audience, the squad is more than ready to restore its former glory.
Last note, the Chinese squad LGD Gaming is worth keeping an eye on. LGD Gaming hopes to continue the tradition of Chinese teams’ success at international tournaments. The third-seeded Chinese squad has excelled at home and is ready to show the rest of the world what they’re made of, especially after finishing fourth in the group stage.
