Among the shockers of the tournament was the abysmal performance of Mongolian powerhouse Zeus Esports. The team had a horrendous run at the League Stage and Finals where they failed to gain any kind of momentum.
Having finished third in the PMGC last year, the team was leading the 2021 points race at the start of the tournament's League Stage. However, DRS Gaming overtook them, clinching fourth spot in the League.
Their performance got worse heading into the finals as they finished in the 12th spot, failing to qualify for PMPL MENA and South Asia Championship. Their hopes of reaching the 2021 Global Championship also ended in disappointment.
After the South Asia Finals, the qualified teams will shift their focus towards the PMPL: MENA & SA Championship along with the upcoming PMGC 2021. Other teams will look to analyze their tactics and capitalize in the next season of PUBG Mobile esports.
