Organised by Tencent Games, the event attracted 384 teams with over 1,500 individuals participating across Malaysia for the PMNC National finals. Sixteen teams reached the finals to battle it out for a shot at a prize pool of US$27,733 (RM114,000).
At the end of the grand finals, ViP Squad – Victorious in Play emerged as the champions of PMNC 2019. The team walked away with a cash prize of US$9,731 (RM40,000) as well as free mobile plans for a year from Yoodo.
Yoodo has extended the free promo period for its PUBG MOBILE data add-on. This promo gives users 20GB of dedicated data for the popular game and is now free until the end of December 2019.
“Now gamers can continue playing PUBG MOBILE at ease on Malaysia’s widest 4G LTE network without worrying about data charges,” said Yoodo head Chow Tuck Mun.
“Mobile gamers look for telcos with fast, reliable and competitively priced broadband.
“We want gamers to know that we speak their language when it comes to mobile gaming. We’re ready to take their gaming experience to the next level.”
Yoodo sponsored the last PMNC tournament and rewarded the winners with one-year free mobile plans. To conclude the season, Yoodo signed on the champions becoming the first telco to unveil their own e-sports team Yoodo Gank. They have just added their newest member, Raymond Tan Boon Sheng aka iSHOTz.
“Our goal as a company is to empower Malaysians to showcase their talents in not only e-sports but also in active sports, entertainment and tech segments,” said Chow.
“Sponsoring PMNC last year was a truly rewarding experience, being able to shine the spotlight on Malaysia’s growing e-sports talents. This is why we were quick to step up to the opportunity of sponsoring PMNC again this year.”
