On the surface of the race, PUBG Mobile surpassed lots of opponents, including the League of Legends European Championships - one of the most famous game titles across the globe. In fact, the Eastern Division gained the highest popularity among all the eSports in 2020, considering that the Western Division was recorded with a peak viewership at 50,000 only. 

During its final match of the Grand Finals, PUBG Mobile World League received the attention of more than 1.1 million viewers at its peak. The champions of the Eastern Division were no one but the last-season kings - Bigetron Red Aliens.

One of the most contributing factors is the local viewership with the Hindi stream taking up 36% of the total viewed hours of the tournament, but the ban from the Indian government over the game will certainly make a huge change to the viewership of the game in the coming months. The game also received a huge number of viewers from YouTube and the Indonesian stream with over 5,00,000 concurrent viewers at its highest peak.
