Following the end of the 2019 PUBG season, the publisher has now revealed the details of the structure of the PUBG scene for the coming year.
Three PUBG Global Series stations on the way to the PUBG Global Championship
For the coming year, the PUBG Corporation announced a revised tournament structure. With three major tournaments as run-through stations to the grand final of the PUBG Global Championship at the end of the year, the previous regional leagues will be eliminated. The first station of the new PUBG Global Series (PGS) will be Berlin.
32 teams will meet on the Spree in April and decide the first winner of the new PUBG year. The best four teams of the last World Championship are already set for Berlin and automatically qualified. There will be an open qualification system for the remaining 28 starting places. This will start in most regions already in February.
The three PGS stations will be the fixed points for the next season and at the same time function as a qualification platform for the grand final of the PUBG Global Championship in November. For every single station, the scene will be supported by crowd-funding. There will be exclusive in-game items as well as the popular “Pick’em Challenge”.
PUBG opens its ecosystem
With the elimination of the previous leagues, developer PUBG Corporation opens the system and offers third parties the possibility to organize their tournaments. Recently the criticism of the developer had become louder, that they didn’t do enough for PUBG’s Esport scene and didn’t keep their promises. It remains to be seen whether the new tournament structure can solve the problems. The reactions of the scene seem to be cautiously optimistic.
