Are you excited at the thought of PUBG Mobile’s first awards ceremony?
The good news is: it may happen sooner than you think!
Tencent recently dropped hints for the PlayerUnknown’s BattleGrounds (PUBG) Mobile Esports Awards 2020— a first of its own.
Players and PUBG Mobile fans will have the chance to vote for their favorite professional players soon.
In an official tweet, PUBG Mobile Esports confirmed the announcement:
“We are happy to announce the @PUBGMOBILE Esports Awards 2020 is launching soon! Fans will be able to vote for their favourite professional #PUBGMOBILE player. Stay tuned for more information.”
Apart from the PUBG Mobile Esports Awards 2020 “launching soon,” no other details are revealed yet.
The official hashtag used for the awards ceremony is #PUBGMEsportsAwards.
Tencent had a history of conducting votes for different events and challenges for the titular FPS title.
For one, it included selecting players for a team-up event in the PUBG Mobile Club Open (PMCO) Spring Split 2019.
Community voting was also observed for the PUBG Mobile Star Challenge (PMSC) in 2019.
It remains unclear how the first-ever PUBG Mobile Esports Awards will be structured out.
There’s no official list of the included categories yet, but that only brings more excitement to the game’s first awards ceremony!
2020 has been a big year for PUBG Mobile esports, especially since the introduction of the Pro and World Leagues.
The year alone has a prize pool of over $5 million.
PUBG Mobile World League (PMWL) season 0 is now on-going for the East and West divisions.
A total of forty teams are competing for a share of the coveted $850,000 prize pool.
PUBG Mobile’s 2020 esports season will wrap up with the PUBG Mobile World Championship (PMWC) scheduled later this year.
Tencent has claimed that the PMWC will be the “biggest event” in the history of the famous FPS title.
PUBG Mobile continues to be doing great with its large player base. The game is also active in the Esports scene despite being temporarily banned in Pakistan over physical and mental health concerns.
The Pakistani government called the game “addictive” and a “waste of time.” Because of this, it’s considered as a threat for being the cause of negative health effects on its player base.
The country’s national council also received complaints about the game, citing the increasing number of recent suicide incidents brought by PUBG:
“PTA has received numerous complaints against PUBG wherein it is stated that the game is addictive, wastage of time and poses serious negative impact on physical and psychological health of the children.”
The FPS title is also heavily criticized in countries like Nepal, Iraq, India, and China.
