The National PUBG League is heating up. Multiple teams try to cement themselves at the top going into the middle of the Phase. With two weeks gone and two to go, let’s see which of the 16 teams came out on top this week.
Here is a selection of 5 Top performers in the PUBG League.
The Rumblers weren’t able to return to their Phase 2 form in the first week, coming in at 13th place. Apparently, it was just a rough start, as this week they take first place overall with 101 points.
Their first day’s games start out with above-average results, earning placement points in five of the six games. They also earned 24 points from kills to supplement that. On Sunday however, The Rumblers came to brawl. The first two games of the day ended in a second-place finish and a high kill total, giving them 31 points.
Their biggest bombshell of the weekend comes on a 12 kill first-place finish on Miramar, propelling The Rumblers to that top spot for the week. They sit at 7th place overall, only 17 points behind a top-three placement.
Envy came into the week like The Rumblers, struggling despite being a strong roster. They similarly pick up the pieces and manage a 100 point weekend, one short of first place.
Team Envy is the picture of consistency this week, earning two third-place and second-place finishes on day one alone. Their kill counts are decent, but Envy can’t manage to pick up a game win.
Day two saw them start off a bit slow, but they manage to pull it back, gaining another second and third-place game. While the massive pop off game eludes them so far, their high baseline has them sitting at fourth place.
The perennial NA PUBG champions get right back to their winning ways after a middling week one. Unlike Envy, Tempo Storm were incredibly polarizing this week, either going big or going home. In the end, they manage a respectable 99 points.
If every day was like day one for TS, they would be champions again in a heartbeat. With three first-place finishes and tons of kills to boot, 72 of their 99 points come in just 6 games.
However, that performance couldn’t be matched on day two. Tempo Storm only earn placement points in three of six games and their average kill total is less than three per game. If they can fix their consistency, expect Tempo Storm to run away with the Phase yet again.
Lazarus & Riot Squad
Both the long-time veterans and the relative newcomers earned 91 points this weekend. While Lazarus were stronger in the placements department, the young guns of Riot Squad showed great fragging power.
Day one saw both teams have an early 17+ point game that carried their total early. After a mediocre ending, day two is where both squads turn it on. Lazarus’s earned 22 points on the first Erangel game and Riot Squad earned 18 on the second.
Riot Squad made up for the comparatively weaker day one by earning placement points and large kill totals in four of six games. The trajectory of both of these teams is very interesting to watch, as Lazarus sits at second place overall with 171 points and Riot Squad owns fifth at 157 points.
An undecisive PUBG League last round
Moving into the back half of the Phase, it’s still anyone’s title to take. Only 30 points separate third place from eighth place at the moment. With $225,000 of total prize pool money and multiple spots at the PUBG World Championships on the line, every team better be ready to bring their best play to the table to win the PUBG League.
