Professional PUBG Tournaments

PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds isn’t just a fun game. PUBG tournaments are held steadily, in which professional teams compete with each other. There are competitions of an almost amateur level, where the prize is rather symbolic, and there are events where millions of dollars are raffled off. These championships attract the attention of esports players and fans. The former strives to get to the top competitions, the latter watch the broadcasts of matches — many interesting moments happen at them, and the spectacle itself is very exciting.

History of PUBG Tournaments: How Did It All Start?

It all started with the immediate release of the game. She immediately gained great popularity. At the same time, it became clear that PUBG would be not only a fun game but also a serious esports discipline. The first PUBG esports tournaments took place in August 2017. Then the Gamescom PUBG Invitational 2017 took place.

This event was divided into 4 parts. Solo players, squads, and also duets fought among themselves. The latter had two separate tournaments: first and third person, respectively. A total of 350 thousand dollars were drawn. Most of all, 180 thousand, went to squads. This PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds tournament ended with the victory of the Luminosity Gaming team. The four esports players then earned 80 thousand dollars — each took $20,000.

The next year, the game took on new heights. Then the first tournament with a prize fund of more than one million dollars was held. It was the PUBG Global Invitational 2018. Gamers playing in the first and third-person played a million dollars each — separate PUBG tournaments were held for them. The event took place in Berlin, at the Mercedes-Benz Arena. Since then, large arena events have become the norm for PUBG.

Types of Esports Tournaments in the PUBG Game

There are four main types and formats in which eSports competitions are held at PUBG:

  1. Classic. There are 100 players on the map. They can play alone or in a duet or quartet. The task is to stay alive as long as possible. Also, players and teams receive points for frags. Most often, PUBG tournaments are held in this format;
  2. Quick match. Fewer players participate here — up to 28 people. Also, the duration of the match is much more modest here, and only solo gamers can participate;
  3. Team Deathmatch. In matches of this format, 2 teams of 4 people participate. The task is quite clear — to destroy rivals;
  4. Infection. The match involves 12 players who fight against zombies. They, in turn, must infect people. If the players manage to survive, they will win the match.

The Biggest PUBG Tournaments that are Held Regularly

PUBG champions are held quite often, and the fans do not always have time to follow all the matches. But there are those competitions that grab the attention of fans and force them to put any business aside.

PUBG Global Invitational

The first tournament of this format was held back in 2018. Then the teams played for 2 million dollars in two modes — we talked about this event earlier. Then the tournament was paused for almost 3 years, but the comeback was phenomenal. The PUBG Global Invitational 2021 draw amazed fans with its scale. More than $7 million was awarded at the tournament. This event entered the top 10 esports competitions in terms of the prize pool.

PUBG Nations Cup

PUBG tournaments are held among teams. Often the compositions are international. However, PUBG has the Nations Cup, in which only national teams participate. So, at the 2019 draw, the Russians became the strongest. In the final, they beat the formidable South Korean national team.

PUBG Continental Series

This event was born in the era of a pandemic. It became clear that the world would be closed to active travel — esports players would stay at home. Then it was decided to organize a single continental league. The strongest teams fought in their regions. The league matches were held throughout most of the year, which means that the fans did not have to be bored.

How Do Teams Develop Skill to Compete in Major Championships?

Esports players literally live the game. Winning a major PUBG Championship takes long and hard training. Players spend at the computer for 8 or more hours a day, giving all of themselves to training. They play regular matches, practice with other teams, hone certain skills.

It is also important to prepare for tournaments from a moral point of view. Esports teams often have psychologists who help players not to burn out, be constantly motivated, and be charged to win.
