PCS7 Open Qualifiers Recap


by PUBG Esports

Three rounds of the PUBG Continental Series 7 Open Qualifiers are behind us. The teams for the Latin America and North America Regional Playoffs are set. 24 teams from each region will continue to fight for a chunk of change and a spot in the Grand Final. Let’s break down the Open Qualifier and what to expect going forward. 

61 teams from North America began the Open Qualifier on August 10th. Now – one week and three rounds later –  eight teams will advance to the Regional Qualifier. 


Teams to keep an eye on

Those eight qualified teams will take on sixteen teams that qualified for the Regional Playoff through their performance during ESL Masters Phase 2. We know that those teams are fierce, but which teams from the Open Qualifier should we keep an eye on during the Regional Playoff?

Mercy Gaming, including Matthew “SneakAttack” Buschick, and 4 Funners, including Jonathan “Jsank” Sanker, each earned two chicken dinners in the final rounds of the Open Qualifier. Mercy Gaming ended the qualifier with a tournament-high 73 kills and 121 points. We’re excited to see how this squad does against the big dogs. 

PUBG Continental Series 7 Schedule

The North America Regional Playoff kicks off on August 19th at 4:00 p.m. PDT. The 24 participating teams will have been broken up into three groups.

There are still three more stages left to one of the final PUBG tournaments of 2022. Here are the remaining dates for each Regional Playoff, the Last Chance Qualifier and the Grand Final.
