The National PUBG League, which featured professional PUBG teams from all over North America, concluded over the weekend, and it was clear that one team was just cut out from a different cloth compared to the others.

Tempo Storm followed up their NPL Preseason showing with a dominant display of their skill and talent at the National PUBG League as they bested every other opponent without even breaking the proverbial sweat. Although it may seem premature to declare them the absolute best that the game has to offer, Tempo Storm did everything in their power to deserve that fictional title.

Following their NPL Preseason win, Tempo Storm have now also won the NPL Royale and NPL Phase 1 as the four of YaBoiDre, Meluke, Zanpah, and Sharky, have proven that they stand well above the rest of their competition.

Having seemingly no equal in North America, Tempo Storm will look to continue their momentum for the FACEIT Global Summit: PUBG Classic in April, along with the other Top 4 teams from the National PUBG League.

Other stand out teams over the weekend include Tempt Fate, who fell just two points short from securing a spot at the PUBG Classic. Cloud9 also played well after finishing second overall, while Smokin Aces’ Red mustered just enough out of their crew to avoid relegation. Finally, Noble eSports and Oxymoron started showing signs of life, albeit probably much too late to salvage their season.

Here’s the final leaderboard for Phase 1 of National PUBG League:

Tempo Storm – 368 Points

Cloud9 – 299 Points

Team Envy – 290 Points

Shoot To Kill – 285 Points

Why Tempt Fate – 283 Points

Wildcard Gaming – 232 Points

Smokin’ Aces Red – 226 Points

Ghost Gaming – 220 Points

Endemic Esports – 216 Points

Simplicity – 211 Points

Spacestation Gaming – 211 Points

eUnited – 182 Points

Vicious Gaming – 176 Points

Lazarus – 142 Points

Noble eSports – 140 Points

Oxymoron – 126 Points

Tempo Storm, Cloud9, Team Envy and Shoot To Kill will now be headed to London to compete against international PUBG teams in the PUBG Classic next month. The April event will serve as the first international tournament in PUBG’s debut season. It will be the perfect opportunity for Tempo Storm to prove that they’re not just a big fish in a small North American pond.

As for the other NPL teams, Phase 1 isn’t over just yet. Those who placed in the bottom 6 will have to fight to retain their spots against other NPL Contenders on March 22 in a relegation event. The winners will advance and join the other Top 10 teams from the NPL Phase 1 in Phase 2 later this year.

Whereas Phase 1 of the NPL only recently concluded, the PUBG Europe League is set to kick off as well on March 21.
