To create additional content for fans and to help players warm up while PMPL was postponed PUBG MOBILE Esports incorporated Scrims, matches held four days a week designed to heat up the competition.
The PUBG MOBILE Pro League (PMPL) is a new pro-level of competition, taking place across four regions - Southeast Asia, South Asia and Americas (North and South America)- allowing teams to compete for a slice of the $5 million USD prize pool on offer from the 2020 program. With the PMPL postponed, the scrims were created and have been in full swing over the last few weeks with TSM Entity, Faze Clan and Onic Esports maintaining a consistent lead. Competitions were broadcast four days a week allowing teams to hone their skills ahead of the regular competition. Offering daily prize pools for teams, Scrims also created content enticing millions of fans to tune in.
PMPL South Asia will be broadcast at 18:00 - 22:20 IST(+5:30 GMT) on Friday to Sunday per week from May 22nd to June 14th on PUBG MOBILE Esports YouTube channel.
