The leagues of PUBG Esports crowned champions and awarded points to their top performing teams throughout the year. From the custom-built battle royale facility at OGN Super Arena to the historic halls of the Oakland Arena, PUBG’s professionals are cutting a path across the Golden State to claim greatness. The best of the best have proven themselves and will take to the stage at the PUBG Global Championship (PGC) looking to grab the biggest slice of a $2 million+ prize pool and claim the Ultimate Chicken Dinner: first global championship in PUBG.

Wildcard Slots

Five seats at the PUBG Global Championship went to the “wild card” leagues as determined by the PUBG Classics and PUBG Nations Cup. The FACEIT Global Summit awarded three additional PUBG Global Championship slots to the three regions that posted the three best finishes at the event.

Scoring Rules

The combination of PUBG’s dedicated Esports Mode and the universal ruleset make PUBG Esports the premiere battle royale events on the esports calendar.

One of the most important elements to understand is scoring (from SUPER):

Every Match in the Competition will award Points in accordance with the following scoring system. Kill Points + Placement Points = Match Points.

Kill Points are awarded to Teams based on the number of Kills the Team accumulates during each Match. A Team will earn one (1) Kill Point per Kill.

Placement Points are awarded to Teams based on their finishing position at the end of each Match.

Teams will accumulate Placement Points based on the following matrix.
