Scores and standings for the PMWL East opening weekend

Avatar

Published

on

The opening weekend of the PUBG Mobile World League (PMWL) East season zero is being played on July 11 and 12. A total of 20 teams are competing in the league. 

The results of the opening weekend will be used to seed the teams into five groups of four teams each ahead of the league play. The league play will be held between July 14 to Aug. 2. The top 16 teams from the league play will move on to the finals where a champion will be crowned. 

The PMWL was originally scheduled to be held at the newly-constructed PUBG Mobile studio in Katowice, Poland. It is being played online, however, to ensure the safety of everyone involved amidst the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Even though 20 teams have qualified for the PMWL East, only 19 are playing today. This is because the Pakistani roster of FreeStyle isn’t able to compete due to the interim ban on PUBG in the country. 

Here are the scoreboards for each match of the PMWL East season zero and the overall placement points. The scores are being updated live.

NiP announce “Path of a Ninja” talent program

Published

on

NiP has unveiled its talent program which will work on scouting, recruiting, and supporting a new generation of players together with the Swedish CS:GO tournament series Elitserien. After each season of Elitserien, two to three players that stand out will be added to the “Path of a Ninja” program, which aims to lower the gap between grassroots and professional CS:GO.

The players will be selected by a jury featuring Potti, a member of the original Ninjas in Pyjamas team and co-founder of the organization, as well as the team’s current coach Björn “⁠THREAT⁠” Pers, their COO Jonas Gundersen, and Area Academy’s Frederik “⁠JAEGARN⁠” Andersson.

THREAT will help select the players for the talent program

Jonas Gundersen, NiP‘s Chief Operating Officer and a former CS 1.6 professional himself, sees the benefits of academy teams and six-player rosters, but points out there is a step before that which their project aims to help with: “We see the need to support the underlying ecosystem and provide ways into a potential academy team in the future”.

Potti, the CEO of the company behind the Elitserien, Area Academy, adds that this project feels like “a full circle” as “the reason we became so successful during my first session in NIP 20 years ago is because we picked up young talents who we saw huge potential in”.

The Svenska Elitserien Fall 2020 season will conclude the upcoming weekend, with four teams still in competition, including Max “⁠quix⁠” Lindkvist‘s Lilmix and DreamHack Open November attendees flowskola.

NiP‘s project makes them the latest Nordic organization to put emphasis on nurturing young talent. North have unveiled their long-term talent development strategy and partnership with Danish team AGF in September, while Astralis followed by launching their development program in November.

fnatic take down MIBR; to face Virtus.pro in Flashpoint 2 upper bracket final

Avatar

Published

on

A series with two quite different maps took place in the Flashpoint 2 upper bracket semi-final match between fnatic and MIBR, with the Swedes fighting back time after time to secure their map pick, 25-21, and then trouncing the Brazilians 16-4 on their own map pick, Vertigo.

The result sees fnatic reach the upper bracket final where they will face Dzhami “⁠Jame⁠” Ali‘s Virtus.pro, who took down BIG in their semi-final match. MIBR, who were fined by Flashpoint for a “breach of competitive integrity” shortly before the match, have dropped to the lower bracket where they will take on MAD Lions in an elimination game.

JW and KRIMZ caused issues for MIBR on both maps

Overpass was a highly contested map from the start, albeit fnatic‘s run to take the 5-4 lead on the Terrorist side did show some promise. However, MIBR pulled it back to keep the score close, 8-7 for the half, before Leonardo “⁠leo_drk⁠” Oliveira stepped up to the plate to push his team into the lead at 12-11.

The Brazilians looked to have the upper hand as the end of regulation neared, but Jesper “⁠JW⁠” Wecksell and Freddy “⁠KRIMZ⁠” Johansson pulled off heroics as the last seven rounds were traded back and forth. Going into overtime, MIBR were again on the edge of victory, but failed to close on a number of map points which fnatic capitalized on to steal away Overpass, 25-21.

Vertigo, a go-to map for MIBR since the new lineup came together, looked anything but comfortable for Vito “⁠kNgV-⁠” Giuseppe and co. in this match. The Brazilians started on the back foot after the disappointing Overpass loss and struggled to shut down JW, who pushed his team to an 8-1 lead swiftly. Not much changed after MIBR got their second round on the T side, as Lucas “⁠LUCAS1⁠” Teles‘s clutch attempt in the followup was denied by Robin “⁠flusha⁠” Rönnquist. fnatic continued their reign on Vertigo for a convincing victory, 16-4.
