Game For Peace’s glitzy franchise competition, the Spring Season of the PEL 2023, has been made public by Tencent (Chinese PUBG Mobile). The contest will take place from February 9 to April 22, and 20 participants will battle it out for the glitzy trophy and sizable prize fund.
There will be three phases to the competition: the regular season, the playoffs, and the championship round. There will be 32 matchdays in all, each lasting eight weeks and taking place from Thursday through Sunday. At the Chengdu Quantum World E-sports Center, it will be a LAN event.
PEL 2023 Spring Teams
The number of participating teams dropped from 21 in 2022 to 20 this year due to Team Petrichor Road’s exclusion.
- Four Angry Men
- Action Culture Technology (ACT)
- All Gamers
- Nova Esports
- Team PAI
- Show Time
- The Chosen (TC)
- ThunderTalk Gaming
- Vision Esports
- Weibo Gaming (WBG)
- Wolves (formerly SMG)
The exact format and structure, including team advancement through each stage, map rotation, allocation, prize fund, and more, have not yet been revealed by the organizer. However, PEL generally holds five matches every matchday, and it looks that the event’s schedule will be quite similar to that of the previous season.
PEL 2023 Spring Season Schedule
The 2023 PUBG World League (PMWI), which will take place in Riyadh in July, will feature several teams from all over the world. The distribution of slots has not yet been made public, though. RSG, the PEL Spring winner from the previous year, competed for China and came in sixth.
Fans will undoubtedly have high hopes of Chinese teams this year after averaging their performances in 2022’s two major competitions. Everyone was shocked by Nova Esports’ defeat at the PMGC 2022 Finals because many people had earlier predicted that they would also win the championship. There were other competitors as well, however 4AM, LGD, and The Wolves fell short of expectations.
SMG qualified for the PMGC Grand Finals since they were the indisputable PEL 2022 Summer champions. A football team called Wolves bought them before the biggest game of the year, but it didn’t work out well.
This year’s spring player transfer window, which opened in early January, saw many modifications. Weibo Gaming has recruited veteran players Suk and DaoShi, and The Chosen has acquired FlowerC for the next season.
PUBG Mobile and seven other esports titles will be offered as medal events for the first time at the 19th Asian Games, which will take place this year beginning on October 23 and were originally slated for 2022.
