Performances in PMGC League Group Stage
During the group stage, each team battled in 24 matches. LGD Gaming had a spectacular showing there but made a few mistakes in the last two days. The Chinese team has had sufficient time to work on their mistakes after the Group Stage and will now be looking to get back on track in the upcoming matches.
I8, DRS, and Bigetron did not have poor showings in the first phase but were not consistent for all 24 matches. Nigma Galaxy made it to the second stage after a fabulous performance in the last game of the group. However, the team has been seen struggling to keep up in several games.
Two Thai teams, Bacon Time and Vampire Esports, played aggressively in the Group Stage and fought well until the end. Both teams were in the race for the top three slots until the last match, and they missed the coveted positions by just a few points.
HVVP showcased their signature gameplay, dominating the first three days of the Group Stage. However, the team’s performance on the fourth day was poor, leading to a drop in their overall standings.
Alpha7 Esports, a well-known Brazilian powerhouse, put up a great play in the first stage of PMGC, but their early eliminations in a few matches prevented them from securing any of the top three spots. The team was in seventh place, followed by Damwon Gaming.
The teams will fight for the top 16 spots in the overall standings as the bottom eight of 24 teams will be eliminated from the competition. The rest will make it to the PMGC Last Chance phase.
