OMG take PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds PGI tournament first place
After five days of action, two different events for FPP and TPP modes, and a big charity match in between, the PUBG PGI tournament has come to an end and we now have the details on who came out on top. OMG took first place in the first person tournament for PUBG’s PGI tournament, taking home $400,000 in prize money. For the third person tournament, Gen.G Gold took $400,000.
Here is a look at how teams from both events performed and what we can expect from PUBG esports in the near future.
PUBG FPP PGI tournament recap
For the first person tournament, the Chinese team OMG (Oh My God) came out on top ever so slightly in front of Team Liquid. OMG won the event after eight rounds with a score of 3425. Team Liquid, the second place team, scored 3220.
During this event, kills gave teams 15 more points, so whilst Team Liquid actually got more points for placing higher throughout the tournament, they lost out due to only securing 54 kills, whilst OMG secured 70 throughout the event. OMG certainly scored a well-deserved victory. They performed incredibly well, as did many other teams.
Here is a look at the top 5 teams in the FPP PGI tournament, their points, and their prize winnings.
- 1st – OMG – $400,000 – 3425 points
- 2nd – Team Liquid – $160,000 – 3220 points
- 3rd – Welcome to South George – $100,000 – 2875 points
- 4th – NaVi – $60,000 – 2370 points
- 5th – AVANGAR – $35,000 – 2225 points
PUBG TPP PGI tournament recap
Although there was more of an interest in the first person tournament, it was nice to see that PUBG didn’t dismiss third person mode, either.
Whilst the normal competitive setting for PUBG uses FPP mode, TPP mode opened more opportunities for players and teams that may not have played the game competitively before. Unsurprisingly though, it was the pro teams that came out on top, and some familiar names popped up in the top 5 spots.
Here is an overview:
- 1st – Gen.G Gold – $400,000 – 3240 points
- 2nd – Team Liquid – $160,000 – 2635 points
- 3rd – Welcome to South George – $100,000 – 2610 points
- 4th – Oh My God – $60,000 – 2235 points
- 5th – Pittsburgh Knights – $35,000 – 2090 points
The remaining 15 teams for both the FPP and TPP events had the remainder of the prize pool handed out in this fashion:
- 6th – $35,000
- 7-8th – $20,000
- 9-12th – $10,000
- 13-16 – $5,000
- 17-20 – $2,500
The Future Of PUBG Esports
If you enjoyed the PUBG PGI tournament, you’ll be happy to hear that the PUBG competitive scene is only just starting up. PUBG Corp. recently laid out a five-year plan for supporting esports with regional leagues and a yearly international tournament similar to PGI.
KEEMSTAR also recently shared his interest in creating weekly PUBG events with $100,000 prize pools.
It’s safe to say that the future of PUBG esports is looking very good, so if you’d like to get involved, now is the best time to do it whilst the scene is still new.
