They added a big 54 points to their total with only one second-place finish. The Rumblers pulled off a big surprise, coming in second overall with 45 points. They had many solid finishes, earning them a well-deserved finish. Natus Vincere, Tempo Storm and Genesis also had big performances that gave them strong chances of qualifying.
B vs C
When B took on C, Four Angry Men were the dominant force overall. They came away with a massive 77 points, leaving the second-place team in the dust. They had two strong Chicken Dinners and two more solid third place finishes. VC came up in second, with two Chicken Dinners to themselves as well. WClick and OGN Entus Ace were two other teams that really shined with some very strong team work. With another day of battling done, the final roster is getting closer to being finalized.
A vs C
The final battle included groups A and C. QM was the team this time that overcame all of the competition. They almost matched Four Angry Men from the last round, with a huge 71 points. Lazarus and FaZe followed them up in second and third place, both of them putting on some great performances. This time around, Four Angry couldn’t find their footing again, and they ended up in fourteenth overall. This final matchup sealed the fate of many teams, and now the roster for the PUBG Global Championship grand finals is set in stone.
