Acer has officially announced that they will be launching another installment of the Asia-Pacific Predator League for Playerunkown’s Battleground. Late last year saw eighteen teams from around Australasia battle it out for the qualifying spot at the 2019 Predator League; held on the 15th of February, 2019, in Thailand.
Following a weekend of matches online, Team Immunity was crowned champions of Australasia and secured their spot for the 2019 Predator League. Team Immunity went on to place third at the finals, walking away with a total of $15,000USD in prize money.
Announced via Twitter last night, Nick101, player for Team Immunity, posted a photo containing a confirmation that Team Immunity has been invited to the 2020 Predator League thanks to their strong placement at the previous installment of the competition. After doing some digging, it seems that there will be no online qualifier for Australasia this year, but there will be for the other Asia-Pacific regions.
Team Immunity’s Active Roster:
The Team Immunity roster is made up of veterans of the region, whom have all competed overseas before. Vasili and Chung1E are a duo that have been competing for a long time, most notably on the Avant Gaming roster that placed fourth at the OMEN Challenger Series back in 2018; whilst also competing on the “Hell Yeah Brother” lineup at the Global Loot League: Grand Slam.
Insight has also played alongside some of these players on the “Hell Yeah Brother” lineup, but most notably competed under ORDER and Incognito multiple times overseas; competing in competitions such as the Omen Challenger Series, PUBG Nations Cup, Global Look League: Grand Slam and the FACEIT Global Summit.
Nick101 has most notably competed under the Team Immunity banner for most of his career, but has also competed with Avant Gaming and Hell Yeah Brother; alongside all the other players on the team. He was a part of the Team Immunity roster that competed at the 2019 Predator League.
In a statement given to us by Nick101, he stated “we’re definitely excited to have received the invite slot. Some people have been saying that it’s not a fair process, but we’re planning to buckle down and prove that we can bring the trophy home and do Oceania proud.”
Team Immunity recently competed in the Red Bull Fight or Flight competition in Sydney, Australia, besting 255 other teams competing in the tournament. With their win, they walked away with $30,000 AUD in prize money and a free trip to go watch the PUBG Global Championship Finals in Oakland, USA, on November 23rd.
The 2020 Predator League is set to be held in Manilla, Philippines, with a total prize pool of $120,000 USD. Other teams are yet to be confirmed, as the online qualifiers have not been played out yet. Official dates for the competition are yet to be confirmed, but with this year's tournament held in February, it’s expected that it will likely be the same next year.
