WG B2R qualifies for Red Bull MEO PUBG Mobile World Finals after triumphant 1st place finish at Sri Lankan qualifier

WG B2R qualifies for Red Bull MEO PUBG Mobile World Finals after triumphant 1st place finish at Sri Lankan qualifier

The Red Bull MEO Sri Lanka finals concluded in the wee hours of 20th of December 2020, with 24 teams connecting remotely to compete for a spot in the Red Bull MEO World Finals. WG B2R came out on top in the points table after 6 matches of intense PUBG Mobile action. The leaderboard was in constant flux and a final winner didn’t stand out until the end of the 6th match – a testament to how close this competition was with Sri Lanka’s top competitive teams taking part.

The significance of WG B2R winning this event is the fact that they are a 100% Sri Lankan team. Red Bull MEO country qualifiers allowed non-Sri Lankan nationals in team rosters, therefore we saw mixed teams with players from the United States, India, Pakistan, Maldives, Bangladesh, and Nepal.

Oxford University says playing games makes you happy

Oxford University says playing games makes you happy

  • People playing more games reported greater “wellbeing”
  • All data collected through online games
  • Attitude towards game does affect mental health

A recent study from Oxford University has suggested that playing video games can be good for your mental health. The research found that people who played more games tended to report greater “wellbeing” in their everyday lives.

The study was done using actual play-time data, thanks to almost all of the games we play these days being online. Previous studies had tended to focus on self-reported time playing, which was only weakly correlated with reality.

An important concept to note is the attitude towards the game that you play could affect the mental impact it has. Play the game because it’s fun and you want to.
