The PUBG Global Championship is right around the corner. Nerves are running high for all of the teams that have qualified and for the teams that are still hoping to make it in. One of the biggest representations in the PUBG Global Championship comes from the National PUBG League. These teams are strong, and some are favorites to win it all this time around. With a year of experience behind them, what are the NPL teams bringing to the table?
First up are the heavyweights of the National PUBG League, Tempo Storm. Tempo Storm have won every single phase of the NPL, and each time they have pulled out a commanding victory. They have a solid team and foundation, and they know how to work together without fail. Sharky and Meluke are two players that all of the other teams will need to keep their eyes on. They know how to put up kills, and they are deadly tactically. If Tempo Storm comes in to this competition with the same fight that they showed in Phase 3 of the NPL, they will be guaranteed a high place finish.
Their only downfall comes from the fact that in the FACEIT Global Summit and the GLL Grand Slam, they came in eleventh and twelfth. They seemed to have some trouble dealing with teams from outside of the NPL. If other teams exploit this, they could find a way to push Tempo Storm down.
Lazarus will come into the PUBG Global Championship looking to show that they deserve to be there. Over the past year Lazarus has undergone some roster changes, but it seems that their current roster has finally clicked. In the first two phases of the NPL, Lazarus failed to hit the mark, landing in fourteenth and then in seventh. They finally came together and showed that they have what it takes to compete at a high level. Before this, they haven’t had any international experience, so this will be new to them. If they can keep the focus they held in Phase 3, they may be able to put up a good fight.
Genesis are looking to write a new history for themselves. Formerly the Cloud9 PUBG team, Genesis has come together under their new name and found a new spirit. They were a deadly side in Phase 3, and under the original Cloud9 name, they have had their fair share of international experience. With solid players on their side, such as Kaymind, Genesis will be aiming to get the first international win for their organization.
Envy are another strong side that will be looking for a way to assert their full potential. They know what it’s like to taste first place, winning the NPL Royale in Phase 2. They have had strong finishes in Phase 1 and Phase 3 as well. Moody is one of their strongest players, and he will be looking to lead his side on to a victory that would put their organization in the spotlight.
Finally, there is Ghost Gaming. They really found their footing in Phase 2 of the NPL, but since then they have had some trouble gaining ground. They are going to have to work very hard to match the other teams; but just like all of the others, they are capable of very strong performances. If Ghost can pull off a top place finish, it will be huge for their organization.
