With a total of 631 points, the Chinese team, Four Angry Men defeated the defending world champions, Bigetron Red Aliens, to take first place. Four Angry Men are now the top team coming out of the league stage of the PUBG Mobile Global Championship (PMGC) season zero.
The league stage of the competition had a prize pool of $700,000 and after the league stage, Four Angry Men are walking away with $300,000. They have also won a place at the PUBG Mobile Global Championship Finals in Dubai along with 15 of the top PUBG Mobile teams.
A Chinese team
This win for Four Angry Men is particularly important in the scene because they are a Chinese team. PUBG Mobile gamers in China do not have access to the full PUBG Mobile experience. They were playing on a paired down and edited version of the game called Peacekeeper Elite (also known as Game for Peace). This version of the game was edited to meet the stricter regulations of the Chinese market. The game is similar to PUBG but certain game mechanics like zone rotation have been changed or edited.
Considering that Four Angry Men entered the competition having trained and played on a different game, they dominated the competition. They ended the league stage with eight chicken dinners and 298 kill points from 60 matches, totalling 631 points. They were tailed by second place finishers, Bigetron Red Aliens, who ended the stage with 561 total points a full 70 points less than the first-place winner. The Indonesian team were the previous world champions, and they will almost certainly be looking at how to improve for the finals in January.
As previously mentioned, the finals of the PUBG Mobile Global Championship will be held in January 2021, one month before the PUBG Global Invitational.S will be held in South Korea. The Mobile Championship Final will be held in Dubai, in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). The top 16 teams from the league stages of the Championship will compete for a chance at winning a portion of the $1.3 million prize pool. The teams heading to Dubai for the finals are:

Tencent recently posted a video that announced the location of the finals, and it ended on a shot of the Coca-Cola Arena. There are not a lot of details available about the event, but this could suggest that the PUBG Mobile LAN finals could be held at the 17,000-capacity arena.
This isn’t the first PUBG Mobile event that has been held in Dubai, the PUBG Mobile Star Challenge (PMSC) 2018, was held in the city and is considered to be the first international event that launched the game into the esport that it is now.
