Now that the first week of the National PUBG League has wrapped up, it’s time for the contenders to take center stage. The NPLC is back to its usual Tuesday night action to see who can earn a chance to make it into the top tier. There are some new faces, along with some former NPL teams that will be looking to regain their former glory. Who took the top spot in week one for the contenders?
Match one kicked off with a win for a new face, Almost. They pinned down the final member of Soniqs behind a tree, leaving him no room to escape their fire. They ended up with nine kills to take the first Chicken Dinner of the contenders. Their teamwork assured that they stayed together to the end and kept other teams from picking them off at crucial moments.
The second match of the day saw LowKey Esports get their first Chicken Dinner. They put 12 kills up on the board and earned some major points going forward. They eliminated Comets with a headshot as the lone member was trying to pull the weight of his downed team. After that, they finished off Ripe Army to claim their win on the sands of Miramar.
LowKey then followed up with another win in match three. They took down an impressive 17 players as they pushed through to the end. The match ended with LowKey taking down the final member of Vicious Gaming. These past two matches earned some huge points for LowKey Esports, aiming to take the top spot by the end of the day. If they can keep up their momentum, they could be some serious contenders to move up to the National PUBG League.
Match four did not see a repeat again for LowKey, but a first win for Shook. Shook earned their Chicken Dinner with 10 kills. This earned them the number four spot at the end of the day. They took down Soniqs, who were looking to get the win they had wanted so badly all day. Soniqs came very close and tried to hold on until the end, but Shook had the numbers to overcome them in an open Erangel field.
The standouts from this week are LowKey Esports and Soniqs. LowKey put up some major kill stats and showed that they have what it takes to get to the top. Even though they put up the kills, they still came in second to Soniqs. Soniqs may not have claimed any Chicken Dinners in this week’s competition, but they still earned the points they needed. Their close calls and kills got them the points to be the number one team at the end of the day. Can these two teams take all of this momentum into week two?
The National PUBG League kicks off again this weekend with week two of phase two. It’s still anyone’s contest at this point, with Tempo Storm still fighting to pull off another win. eUnited sit on top going into the weekend, but will they be able to hold on?
