Now that phase one has come to an end and the NPLC relegations have taken place, it’s time for more action. The National PUBG League is now taking its turn with the relegation matches and the top tier NPLC teams will be ready to grab their chance to move up. What teams have secured their place in the National PUBG League for phase two?
The top 10 teams from the NPLC are: Mustache Dave, Denial Esports, PlayerOne Esports, Team Kru, Soniqs, Trifecta, Overconfident, Elevate, Leggo Your Ego and ReinvenT. The bottom six from the NPL are: SpaceStation Gaming, Vicious Gaming, Lazarus, Noble, Oxymoron and eUnited. Who is going to move up, and who will drop down?
Day one started off with a win for Lazarus who are hopeful that they can keep their position in the NPL. They pulled off a nine-kill victory taking down Oxymoron in the final seconds of the match. They used the trees in the area to their advantage and picked off the final two opponents.
Match two went to Mustache Dave as they took advantage of a three on three battle with Elevate. With the circle closing in, Mustache Dave used a small hill to their advantage and were able to use its cover to take down Elevate’s remaining players and seal the win.
The third match of day one saw a win for Trifecta who finished off Vicious and Kru in the end. The team kept tight throughout the match and this ultimately led them to take the Chicken Dinner. After that, Denial picked up a much-needed win, taking down SpaceStation in the process.
The first day finished with Mustache Dave on top, while Lazarus and Oxymoron fell into relegation territory.
Day two kicked off with a win for Oxymoron, who fought hard to gain much needed points. They finished off eUnited with a nine-kill game. eUnited put on a good fight in the end, and earned some solid points as well.
PlayerOne took the Chicken Dinner in match two, wiping out Overconfident in a very small play zone. PlayerOne has been rising up the table looking to claim the promotion. Following their win, they couldn’t pull out the same results in match three. Oxymoron picked up their second win of the day with seven kills. They finished off SpaceStation using rocks as cover.
The final match of the day went to Lazarus who were looking to pick up their form from day one. They rallied and took down eUnited to claim the Chicken Dinner even with PistolaTime’s solid use of smoke grenades.
Denial overtook Mustache Dave at the end of day two and eUnited jumped back into a safe position. Who is going to earn a promotion on the final day?
The final day started with another win for Oxymoron who were carrying their momentum from their wins in day two. They took down the promising PlayerOne as they pushed them up against the blue zone.
The second match saw PlayerOne come back and claim a Chicken Dinner for themselves. They put up a very impressive 15-kill game as they took down Elevate and Vicious. Their awareness of their surroundings got them this very impressive win.
Oxymoron came in again and swept the win in match three. They took out PlayerOne and Soniqs as they used prone positions to stay hidden. Their momentum has kept them safe from relegation on this final day.
The final relegation match was claimed by eUnited who had been looking for a win all weekend. They held on until the end and took down SpaceStation in a two versus one situation. The smoke couldn’t keep SpaceStation hidden in the final battle of the match.
As the final day concluded, six winners had emerged. Oxymoron, eUnited and SpaceStation held onto their positions and avoided relegation. Mustache Dave, Denial, and PlayerOne fought hard and have earned their promotion to the National PUBG League. While the winners moved up, Lazarus, Vicious and Noble have been relegated from the NPL.
Will these three new teams shake up the competition in phase two? Congratulations to the newly promoted teams.
