PMNC 2020 Kicks Off with RM100,000 Prize Pool and Brand-New Format
The PUBG MOBILE Malaysia National Championship (PMNC) 2020 kicks off today (June 10) offering participants a chance to win from a RM100,000 prize pool and for those who make it to the Playoffs stage, an opportunity to represent Malaysia in the upcoming season of the PUBG Mobile Pro League (PMPL).
This year’s championship comes with a change in format: there is an option for players to join the games as individuals, instead of joining as part of a team. Those who join the competition as individuals will play solo in the first stage of the game but will be grouped with other individual players to play as a team in the second stage.
This new format allows those who have in the past faced difficulty in finding a team, join the competition. It also provides a wider pool for other teams to identify hidden talents,and recruit new and talented team members.
Upon registration, PMNC 2020 participants will be split up into four zones, namely Erangel, Sanhok, Miramar and Vikendi. The zones are based on the states in Malaysia. While registering, participants will need to indicate which state they are registering under, which will then determine the zone they will be placed in.
A special scoring system has been created, in which all participating teams and individuals are considered representatives of the state they registered under. The winning state representative will be crowned state champion at the end of the tournament.
PMNC 2020 Stages
PMNC 2020 will be held in three stages: Zone Qualifiers stage, Zone Finals stage and Playoffs stage. In the first stage, participants will either register as a team under the Squad Mode, or as individuals under the Solo Mode. The top teams to emerge from the Zone Qualifiers stage will proceed to the Zone Finals stage, which will be streamed live. The top teams from the Zone Finals stage will move on to compete in the Playoffs stage.
Those who played in Solo Mode in the Zone Qualifiers stage and survive the level, will be grouped into a team of three other individual players. The newly-formed team will then play as a squad, still in Solo Mode, in the Zone Finals stage.
For the Playoffs stage, four slots have been allocated for the top Squad Mode teams to emerge from the Zone Finals stage, while only one slot has been allocated for the winning Solo Mode team. What this means, is that the individuals that make it to the Playoffs stage are likely very skilful, which will lead to very exciting gameplay for all.
