PUBG Mobile’s first India tournament, The Tencent Gaming PUBG Mobile India Series 2020, is all set to go live soon. PMIS 2020 registrations are available and will run until Sunday, 17 May for one week. With the Covid-19 lockdown still in place, it is expected that registration for one of the largest e-sports events in India will increase. Consequently, to help the best teams qualified for the PMIS 2020 finals, Tencent has laid down main rules and procedures that should be transparent to all teams to carry out the tournament. The final PMIS 2020 award is Rs 50 lakh, and the absolute bragging rights of PUBG Mobile’s top players in India.

In-game qualifiers: As thousands of entrants are expected to sign up for PMIS 2020, in-game qualifying will be eligible for the first round. These are played in PUBG Mobile’s classic mode and at least 15 matches must be played from the 20th to the 24th of May. 10 of the team’s best matches will be considered at the end of the five days and the online results will be considered for the next stage.
Online qualifiers: This year’s PMIS 2020 online qualifications will feature a total of 256 teams. PU BG Mobile India says, “Before the match, lobby ID and password will be shared with you by tournament organizers on group channels such as Whatsapp or Discord. You’ll get an invitational link to the competition.” Of those 256 players, 248 will be chosen by the in-game qualifiers and eight potentially high profile players will be provided with direct ties to this process.
The 256 teams will then be grouped into 16 groups, each of 16 teams. Groups play two games each, where the top three teams in each group qualify directly for the quarter-finals. Eight more teams with the lowest number of kills will now be added (outside the 48 selected), taking the total number of qualification teams up to 56.
Quarter finals:There are eight more ‘pro’ teams invited to take part in this, bringing up to 64 participant groups. These groups will be split into four groups of 16. Through group will play six matches, and each group’s eight best squads move on to the semifinals. Thus a total of 32 teams will reach the tournament’s penultimate stage.
Semi finals:In this round, teams are grouped into 4 groups of eight teams and the decision-makers are played in a round-robin format. The best 16 teams will be in the grand finals at the end of this round.
Grand finals:These teams will play 18 matches over a three-day period. The team with the highest cumulative score is declared winner of the PUBG Mobile India 2020 series at the end of these matches.
