PUBG Mobile banned two Vietnamese teams from PMPL

A one-year ban has been imposed on two Vietnamese professional PUBG Mobile teams for cooperating during the PMPL SEA Championships 2022 Fall Play-Ins. On Sunday, September 4, 2022, the competition, which featured a total of 16 teams from Southeast Asia, came to an end.

The competition included four APAC teams as well as the fifth through seventh-ranked teams from the PMPL in Indonesia, Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore, the Philippines, and Vietnam. For three spots in the SEA Championship, these teams competed. The two-day competition took place on September 3 and 4, 2022.

PUBG Mobile Esports announced on its social media channels that Phoenix and Eighteen Plus were joining forces in the PMPL SEA Play-Ins after conducting an investigation. Due to their unsportsmanlike behavior, both teams have been banned for a year from participating in any official competitions.

The officials did not say how often they would collaborate during the competition, but in the fourth match of day two, Eighteen Plus comfortably eliminated Phoenix’s players using vehicle eliminations, earning them four elimination points.

Bigetron RA, a well-known team, fell short of the top three and was thus disqualified from the SEA Championship. Additionally, both of the convicted teams were blamed by their supporters for conspiring to target and defeat BTR and preventing the team from winning the championship.

From the opening match to the completion of the competition, Phoenix Esports and BTR were frequently observed fighting. Only 12 matches were played, yet each one was important for each team.

In the 12th and final match, Phoenix Esports traveled to Pochinki and faced off against BTR in a drop match, eliminating them at 16th place in the match that mattered the most.

The top three teams that qualified for the SEA Championship were Vampire ESports, TEM, and Don’t Break Dream, while the other teams were eliminated. Bigetron RA performed poorly on day two, falling to sixth place with 98 points.

With 84 points earned from 12 games, Eighteen Plus finished 10th overall. Phoenix (4NIX) finished the competition in 13th place.

13 other teams will compete in the Championship against the top three qualified teams. The top teams from the competition will also be invited to participate in the PMGC 2022 League Stage, which will begin on November 22, 2022. Read more mobile games news here at Daman Games Tips.
