PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds. What’s the Secret Behind the Popularity of PUBG Esports?

PUBG is a “Battle Royale” game. It was released relatively recently — an early version became available in 2017. Although the game had a lot of bugs at first, it began to gain popularity. Interest in the “Battle Royale” also grew. In fact, PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds opened this genre to the general public. Millions of people went to play for survival.

What’s the Idea and How to Play PUBG?

It is very easy to understand the essence of the game. There are 100 players and a plane that throws them into a large open area. After landing, you need to acquire weapons, medicines and other equipment. You also need to survive in PABG. This can be done either by active actions, killing opponents, or secretly, hiding in houses, forests, bushes and other hard-to-reach places. Each player chooses a tactic to their liking.

You can play PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds either alone or as part of a squad — a group of four. In this case, you are playing against other teams that also work together. This adds entertainment and interest to the matches — it’s always more fun together.

Today, PUBG’s stats are poor. If at the very beginning the game was the best and most popular in the Battle Royale genre, now it has lost ground. So, in 2017-2018, the average online has exceeded the figure of one million players. Record online in PUBG — 3.2 million people at the same time. Now the figure averages 100-200 thousand players. But, nevertheless, PUBG is still played, the game lives on as a professional eSports discipline.

How has Professional PUBG Esports been Successful?

The first tournaments began to be held when the game was still in Early Access. Gamers who managed to train well in a couple of months got the opportunity to become the first esports players in a new, developing discipline. This promised them good money.

The first major tournament for this game was Gamescom PUBG Invitational 2017, which took place at the end of August 2017. The total prize fund was $350,000. This money was divided into four parts: for solo players, squads, first and third person duos. Most of all, 180 thousand dollars, was allocated for gamers who performed in fours. Since then, the game PUBG as an esports discipline began to develop and grow.

Already in 2018, the pro scene has grown noticeably. New players came up, including those from other eSports disciplines. Tournaments with a significant prize fund were organized for this business. As part of the PUBG Global Invitational 2018, $2 million was awarded to teams playing from the first and third person.
PUBG tournaments are a series of matches where all teams fight for survival at the same time. Those who stay alive longer will receive more points. Also, points are awarded for killing opponents — this motivates teams to play aggressively, which makes PUBG esports entertaining and interesting for the viewer.

The top-ranked PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds tournament was held in the spring of 2021. The PUBG Global Invitational.S 2021 lasted for almost 2 months. The teams fought among themselves, played bright matches and fought for an impressive prize pool of $7 million. The winner received over $1 million. The team that took the last place did not leave empty-handed — even these four earned 50 thousand dollars. After this event, eSports PUBG delighted fans with a number of exciting tournaments, in which, although they played smaller amounts, there were many exciting games.
