Tencent unveils second edition of ‘PUBG Mobile’ Campus Championship India 2020

The PUBG Mobile Campus Championship (PMCC) 2020 for India was unveiled, and it is the second edition of the tournament following the PMCC 2018. Though the ongoing PMCO Fall Split South Asia hasn’t finished, the officials have revealed the name and logo of the PUBG Mobile Campus Championship 2020 (PMCC 2020)

So far, no details about the competition have been revealed other than the logo. But players can get an idea of how the tournament will work from the 2018 PMCC. At that event, the competition featured open qualifiers for students across the country. Teams had to make their way through several rounds to reach the 20-team finals. 

The first edition of the PMCC was also the first-ever LAN tournament of PUBG Mobile in India. The event saw a total of 2,50,000 registrations coming in from 1,000 colleges and 30 cities. After 12 days of qualification and elimination rounds, only 20 teams survived to fight for the massive Rs 50,00,000 prize pool.

The LAN Finals took place in Bengaluru. The winning team, The Terrifying Nightmares, took home a cash reward of Rs 15,00,000. 

Last year, when Tencent revealed its esports plans for 2020, it mentioned that Campus Championships would also take place. These were likely affected by the coronavirus pandemic, however. They’re now being conducted but it’s unclear if the Campus Championship will be held for other regions as well.

Being restricted to students only, the Campus Championship will have comparatively amateur teams. Fans can expect to see some new faces rise up in the competition.
