The Grand Finals of the Peacekeeper Elite League or PEL: 2021 Season 4 have been concluded, and Six Two Eight came out as the champion that will represent China at the PUBG Mobile Global Championship 2021 East region.
PEL is the official highest-level professional Chinese league of the “Peacekeeper Elite”, a Chinese remade version of “PUBG Mobile”.
Six Two Eight (STE), which consists of Shanzhi, Sunan, Daoshi, and Yu Yang, clinched the championship with 227 points. Yang, with his brilliant performance, brought home the chicken dinner for the team.
After securing the 2021 PEL championship title, STE also qualified for the PUBG Mobile Global Championship 2021 on the basis of PEL annual points. The team gained 42 PEL annual points in 4 Seasons of PEL and finished first for the “Race to PMGC” from China.
Meanwhile, for runner-up The Chosen (TC), this is their second-place finish for two seasons in a row, after heading into the final match standing at 207 points, having a two-point lead over the then second-placed STE.
TC may be consoled that one of its members, Suk, was awarded the Finals MVP for his impressive display. He brought home a cash prize of $31,287. 770 from Da Kun Gaming, on the other hand, was awarded the rookie of the season and won a total of $15,643.

Tong Jia Bao Esports, another team from China, has already been invited to the PMGC: 2021. The team qualified for the PEC 2021, but the event was cancelled due to the COVID-19 pandemic, so they received a direct invite instead.
