$2,000,000 on the line
If you’re interested in competitive PUBG or battle royales alike, you’ll definitely be on Twitch this weekend as the PUBG Global Championship – the final event of the 2019 Competitive Season ends with a bang. Read on to learn why you should be interested in the event!
It’s quite a badass trailer, if I do say so myself. With an impressive like to dislike ratio and a strong comment section, the video alone has a tonne of support. Of course, it’s an event, not a video. The whopping $2,000,000 event, hosted in Los Angeles by PUBG Corp, will unite the best 32 4-man squads in the world to compete across the tournament layout to claim the majority of prize and all the pride.
The event does experiment with its format a touch, offering four stages of gameplay. First, the Group Stage will separate the 32 teams into two separate groups and from each group, the top 8 will ascend to the Semifinals while the bottom eight will head to the Elimination Stage. From this point onwards, half of the Elimination Stage teams will be eliminated and the other half back in the tournament through to the Semifinals.
At the Semifinals, 3 groups of 8 teams will remain – after 6 matches played across each of the 3 groups, the top 16 are destined for the Grand final while the rest sent packing.
It’s here, at the Grand Final, that things step up a notch. Changing venue slightly, from the OGN Super Arena to the Oakland Arena – a total of 12 matches spread across 6 a day will determine the overall winner for the first place prize pool of $1,000,000.
As you can imagine, this event cannot possibly take place in the span of a single weekend. No, in fact, the event will start on the 8th of November (that’s this weekend!) and conclude on the 24th of this month too.
If you’re a fan of PUBG, this is the event you’ve been waiting for all year. If not, I still recommend tuning in just to experiment!
