Hello PUBG esports fans,
When we think about PUBG esports, there are three main things we focus on in an effort to deliver the best experience possible.
First, is you, our fans. This means providing as many ways for you to conveniently watch as possible, including new view screens right on the Battlegrounds as you play, awesome new rewards for the Pick’em Challenge, giveaways throughout the broadcast and more!
Second is our players. We’ve steadily worked to increase our prize pools, work with and accommodate teams as best we can during this unprecedented pandemic, and introduce even more revenue sharing into our programs so that participating teams can earn even more.
And lastly, a focus on Global competition. PUBG is and always has been a worldwide game. The reason we’re able to put on tournaments like we do is because of the widespread support that continues to this day. Giving as many regions as possible a chance to represent their home is important and something we try to do as fairly as possible.
We kept these goals, among others, in mind when coming up with our 2021 esports plan and are happy to share our current upcoming schedule with you all.
Road to PGC
Starting with the upcoming PGI.S tournament, we are planning a total of four global esports tournaments in 2021. We tried something new last year with the PCS format and based on your great support have decided it will continue this year! PCS4 will be held in June and PCS5 will follow September.
The action concludes at the PUBG Global Championship (PGC), which will mark the end of the 2021 PUBG esports season. Look forward to a hard fought final showdown in November!
PUBG Continental Series 2021
Much like their predecessors, PCS 4 & 5 are online tournaments that take place across four different regions. However, there are several changes to the PCS tournaments in 2021.
First of all, the North American region has been expanded to also include the Latin American (LATAM) region, allowing teams from Latin America to also represent their region in PCS. We’re expanding our selection process for which teams can participate and also plan on increasing the overall number of matches. We hope to provide a stable window of opportunity for skilled players to show off what they can do while giving our fans more Battle Royale action to look forward to.
Lastly, we’re also looking into the addition of more 3rd party events to further diversify and bolster PUBG esports. More info on that at a later time!
PUBG Global Championship 2021
More matches and tournaments is fun, but it’s important to also celebrate the best of the best from around the world. That’s where the PUBG Global Championship comes in.
Teams will be advancing to final tournament based on the points collected from their regional PCS tournaments. Also, we’ll be adding additional ways for teams to earn a slot to the final tournament, including a new wildcard system. The goal of these are to allow teams who may be outside of the PCS regions to still have a chance at attending PGC. Once all preliminary tournaments have concluded, teams who have earned the most points will advance to PGC 2021 to do battle with the best PUBG teams in the world for their shot at the ultimate Chicken Dinner.
Giving participating teams opportunities to earn money is always a priority for us and our current crowd funding systems, such as Pick'Em Challenge, will continue in 2021. Of course, we’re always looking at ways to improve profit sharing and give teams even more opportunities to earn cash.
In conclusion,PUBG is proud to have some of the greatest fans and teams in the scene and we thank you for your tremendous support over the years. We’ll constantly work to keep our tournaments fun and rewarding to watch and look forward to delivering the best esports action yet in 2021!
That’s all for now, thanks and we’ll see you at PGI.S!
