Just after the end of PMWL 2022 – Season Zero, on August 10, 2022, PUBG Mobile Esports announced their new standards for points distribution in tournaments. And this new PUBG Mobile points table is based entirely on kill points, which will force teams to show aggression instead of survival.
Here are the scoring rules:
|8 – 12||1 point|
|13 – 16||0 point|
According to the table, the team that secures the chicken dinner gets 15 points. The team that finishes second and third gets 12 and 10 points respectively. Likewise, teams that reach the fourth, fifth, sixth and seventh position will receive 8, 6 and 4 points respectively. Similarly, teams achieving positions 8 to 12 each receive 1 point. However, teams that are eliminated in position 13, 14, 15 or 16 will receive 0 placement points.
The points awarded for each kill have not changed and for each kill a team gets 1 point.

During the inception of PUBG Mobile Esports Journey, 20 teams played one competitive match, but as the days progressed, only 16 teams compete in a single match in an official PUBG Mobile tournament.
Therefore, it would have been really necessary to balance the points table to maintain fairness in the games.
As in the old days, teams that would lose three of their players in the initial phase got way too many points when the remaining player hid in a hut or bushes that don’t determine his skills. This didn’t make the team a healthy contender to join the eSports scene, but it did steal the chances from the worthy teams.
This new points table asks the players to knock out the entire squad at once, as they would get zero points if their team were knocked out at position 13 or below.
PMCO Point System:
PUBG Mobile Clubs Open (PMCO) uses the same points system during the group stage, semi-final and final as well. However, the points system varies a bit in the online or in-game qualifiers.

PMPL S2 point system
PUBG Mobile Professional League 2022 Season Two used the above-mentioned points distribution system in all matches. In fact, all upcoming PUBG Mobile tournaments will use the same points distribution system.
In addition, from PMPL Season 2 onwards, this points system will continue in all PUBG Mobile tournaments.
PUBG Mobile World Invitational (PMWI) Points System
The PMWI 2021 East and West has also adopted the above-mentioned points system. Valdus Esports was crowned East Champion and Alpha7 Esports as West Champion.

Difference in points collected by 1st and 2nd teams
The gap between the 1st and 2nd place teams has also narrowed and led to tougher competitions. Previously, teams were awarded 20 points for Chicken Dinner and 14 points for securing 2nd position in a match. Currently, teams that finish in #2 get 12 points and the team that wins the match gets 15 points. The difference is reduced by 3 points.
If a team got three consecutive chicken dinners, they would get 60 placement points and could easily maintain the lead even with a little effort in position points. However, with this point system, they would only get 45 points.
So finishing in first or second position doesn’t matter much if you are not able to score a good number of kills in the game.
This new points table every tournament will have a major positive impact. Hopefully PUBG MOBILE guarantees such rules.
Points table: then versus now
There were many instances in PUBG Mobile eSports where worthy teams, who were aggressive with their gameplay – got a lot of kills – but unfortunately were killed in 5th or 6th position, would be easily beaten by other teams, who used to hide in huts or bushes – play prone games all the time – and secure 2nd or 3rd position.
The points were thus heavily dependent on survival points, which reduced the intensity of the matches. Many teams liked to hide from their enemies, avoiding fights and generally ruining the expectations of the spectators.
The first position team would then get 20 points, the fall would be bigger. The second placed team would get 15 points, the third 12 and so on.
This uneven points system made it nearly impossible for teams to make a huge comeback in the tournament as the teams with more points would always play safer matches.
However, with this change, the playing pattern has also changed drastically. Teams focus on kill points over survival points, so those who can get maximum kills have a great chance of making a great comeback even on the final day of the tournament.
Benefits of the New PUBG Mobile Points Table
As mentioned before, the new points system has brought a lot of changes to the players’ tactics. Following are the point-by-point benefits of this newly adopted points system:
- Even points distribution: The team with the last position gets 0 points, so if a team that secured the chicken dinner in the previous match is eliminated first in the next match, it opens up a lot of opportunities for other teams to climb into the table.
