Over the past year, PUBG Esports has put on some amazing events that brought the whole world together to watch one game. From their individual leagues, to their global events, 2019 was a very successful year for the organization as a whole. The competition was always fierce, with teams from all over the world giving it their all. With such a great 2019, how will PUBG capitalize and make 2020 an even better year for the esport? PUBG has released an inside look at how 2020 will be outlined.
What PUBG released is a very early look at what we can expect in the coming year. Due to the great reception of the 2019 PUBG Global Championship, they will be using this format to put on four huge global events in 2020. These events are going to be hosted in major cities around the world, giving different countries a chance to host such a grand stage of PUBG. These events will take place in April, July, October and November. Of course, the final event will be the 2020 PUBG Global Championship, with the three other events serving as opportunities to qualify for the grandest stage.
Battle in Berlin
Berlin will be the first city to host one of these events. Qualification for this first event will begin in February. Teams will be ready to compete on the global stage once again, and begin to earn qualification points for the Global Championship early on. The top four teams from the 2019 PUBG Global Championship will automatically be qualified for this first event in Berlin. Be on the lookout for more information as teams begin to qualify early on in 2020.
Speculations for 2020
With that, not too much else has been released about the 2020 PUBG Esports year as a whole. So, what would you like to see in the next year? With the constant changes that come to PUBG through updates and player feedback, there are endless possibilities when it comes to new features in Esports. Here are some speculations on what 2020 could have in store.
Last year, Sanhok came into play in the middle of the PUBG competitive seasons. This addition forced players to adapt and come up with new strategies to seal their victories. With that addition last year, it could be possible that Vikendi could come into play at some point in 2020. Vikendi is a very different map, and it would allow for teams to showcase new strategies just like they did on Sanhok.
Along with a new map in the fray, it could always be interesting to see smaller events focused on different types of gameplay, such as sniping or single-style events. Shaking up game types could allow new players to break onto the scene and show their individual skills. It would also be interesting to see some of the newest weapons and items added into competitive play. Seeing new weapons could lead to some crazy new strategies and entirely new game plans for teams who usually stick to the same routes.
2020 is surely going to be another huge year for PUBG Esports. Tune in for more coverage of PUBG.
