Now that April has begun the FACEIT Global Summit: PUBG Classic is getting closer and closer. This is the first big PUBG tournament of the year. It will be taking place in London and it is going to be one to remember. There will be 24 teams coming together from all over the world to compete for a $400,000 prize pool. Who is going to come out on top? Here is the breakdown of how it all is going to play out.
How It Works
The FACEIT Global Summit is divided into a group stage, elimination stage, and the grand finals. The group stage will be taking place over three days, beginning on April 16, 2019. The teams will be divided up into three groups of eight teams. Each group will play against the other two to see who can rack up the most points. The top eight teams will head straight into the Grand Finals, whereas the bottom 16 teams will go to the elimination stage.
The elimination stage will consist of the bottom 16 teams from before, and they will be given a second chance to move on to the Grand Finals. Six matches will take place on April 19 to decide who will get to move on. The top eight will proceed to the finals.
The grand finals will take place over two days where the 16 teams will play 12 matches. Six matches will be played each day, and in the end one team will come out on top. Along with prize money and glory, the three best performing regions will earn an extra slot for the PUBG Global Championship later in the year.
Almost all regions have concluded phase one, so the teams are starting to shape up. Here are the teams that will be competing.The Chinese qualifiers are Oh My God, 17 Gaming, Crystal Luster, and Four Angry Men. The teams coming from North America are Tempo Storm, Cloud9, Team Envy, and Shoot To Kill. OP Gaming Rangers, Team VSG, Afreeca Freecs Fatal, and OGN Entus Force have qualified from Korea. Divine Esports, Armory Gaming, and GameHome Esports have qualified from Southeast Asia. The Brazilian Crusaders have qualified from Latin America. Incognito is the Oceanic Qualifier, and finally ahq Esports Club and MP5 have qualified from Taiwan.
These teams are still waiting to be joined by one team from Japan, and four more from Europe. Once those leagues have concluded, the roster will be complete and the teams will be ready to battle it out in the FACEIT Global Summit.
The competition is going to be fierce and all of the teams are going to need all of the support they can get from their fans.
