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.

President Trump Signs Executive Orders Against ByteDance, Tencent

Update: The White House has told the LA Times that the executive order only applies to WeChat transactions.

Original Story: U.S. President Donald Trump issued two executive orders Thursday prohibiting transactions with TikTok owner ByteDance and WeChat owner Tencent Holdings. The language of the order as it relates to Tencent, is as follows:

“The following actions shall be prohibited beginning 45 days after the date of this order, to the extent permitted under applicable law: any transaction that is related to WeChat by any person, or with respect to any property, subject to the jurisdiction of the United States, with Tencent Holdings Ltd. (a.k.a. Téngxùn Kònggǔ Yǒuxiàn Gōngsī), Shenzhen, China, or any subsidiary of that entity, as identified by the Secretary of Commerce (Secretary) under section 1(c) of this order.”

Similar language is used in regards to transactions related to ByteDance and TikTok. The language of both executive orders is vague, leading some to suggest that any transactions with Tencent Holdings in the United States woul be prohibited. In a letter sent to Republican lawmakers Thursday Trump said that he would define what transactions would be affected when the executive orders take effect on Sept. 20.

Tencent owns Riot Games and has holdings Epic Games, Activision Blizzard, and many other video games and esports-related companies.

Dr Disrespect to Returns Aug. 7 With YouTube Stream, Will Explore Other Platform Options

on

Content creator Herschel “Guy” Beahm’s video game alter ego Dr Disrespect will return to YouTube Friday after a long absence from streaming. This marks the first time Beahm has streamed since late-June when he was banned by Twitch

While Beahm will be streaming on YouTube tomorrow at a12 p.m EST, he has not signed an exclusivity agreement with the platform and will continue to explore other options including Facebook Gaming and his own site, ChampionsClub.gg, according to an announcement.

In late June, Beahm was banned by Twitch for reasons still not publicly disclosed by the Amazon-owned streaming platform.

On June 26, a representative from Twitch told The Esports Observer, “As is our process, we take appropriate action when we have evidence that a streamer has acted in violation of our Community Guidelines or Terms of Service. These apply to all streamers regardless of status or prominence in the community.”

On June 27, Beahm noted on Twitter, “Twitch has not notified me on the specific reason behind their decision… Firm handshakes to all for the support during this difficult time.”

In late June after the news that Beahm had been banned from Twitch broke, TEO reached out to several of his sponsors and partners to determine if there was any change in the status of those relationships. Those sponsors include Mountain Dew AMP GAME FUEL (a PepsiCo brand), ROCCAT (owned by Turtle Beach), Gallery Books (an imprint of Gallery Books Group, which is a division of Simon & Schuster), and Skybound Entertainment, among others. None of the companies TEO reached out to responded to requests for comments at the time of writing. 

The Twitter account for ROCCAT still features the Dr Disrespect character on its header image and Mountain Dew AMP GAME FUEL continues to list Beahm as a streaming partner.
