The PUBG Continental Series 7 has concluded with Soniqs taking home the first place trophy! We’ve been lucky enough to get a front row seat for weeks of action between the top teams of North America and Latin America.
We say lucky as it’ll be one of the last times we see these squads come together before the big show. The PUBG Global Championship (PGC) is up next. That tournament is the end of the road. It’s what all these other competitions have been leading to. Let’s break down what happened during these eventful Grand Final weekends before we get to the PGC.
Breaking down PCS7
After 8 chicken dinners and 193 kills, Soniqs ended up building a 61 point lead over eUnited as the last match ended. This North American squad proved that they were the best team at this event and will look to show out at the PUBG Global Championship in November.
eUnited, 22 Esports, Synergy Esports and Luminosity Gaming all performed admirably, filling out the other four spots on the top of the leaderboard. eUnited was one of the most aggressive teams throughout the tournament, finishing with 161 kills compared to 91 placement points. The only team with the higher discrepancy in points was Trogloditas who ended up 9th with 112 kills and 27 placement points respectively.
Soniqs took home $60,000 in prize money while eUnited took home $35,000 for finishing second. All sixteen teams earned a chunk of the overall $250,000 prize pool.
Synergy Esports won the Insane Squad special award alongside an extra $5,000 in prize money. James “TGLTN” Giezen was awarded $5,000 for earning a tournament-high 64 kills. 22 Esports’ Guilherme “guizeera” Barbosa, Soniq’s Tristan “Shrimzy” Nowicki, eUnited’s Jake “Snakers” Winant and Synergy Esports’ Rafael “PIPAA” Ruppel were named to the All-PCS team for their outstanding individual performances.
Who’s heading to PGC?
The PUBG Global Championship runs from Nov. 1 to 20 and the Americas will have six teams in attendance at the Dubai Exhibition Centre in the United Arab Emirates. Soniqs, 22 Esports, YAHO, eUnited, Wildcard Gaming and Luminosity Gaming will go to work on the international stage later this year.
These six teams will take on opponents from Europe, Asia and Asia Pacific. The current prize pool is listed at $2,000,000, but 30% of the revenue from in-game PGC 2022 items will be added. The final prize pool amount will be announced at a later date.
Where to watch the PUBG Global Championship.
The PUBG Global Championship is over a month away, but we’re already counting the days until we see our Americas teams jump from the plane and into the action. The competition will be stiffer, but we’re confident in our boys’ chances.
