PUBG Global Invitational 2018 has to come to an end and it was a huge success. The best teams finally competed in the highly competitive FPP Mode of PUBG which doesn’t have things like Peeker’s Advantage like in TPP Mode. Here’s a recap of the winners, rankings, and highlights of the PUBG Global Invitational 2018 FPP Tournament.
Winners & Rankings
Looks like China really is number one after all. Congratulations to Team OMG! They won the tournament and totally annihilated the competition. They won $400,000 USD in prize pool money. Team Liquid also played really well but they came second and took home the second place prize money of $160,000 USD. Team WTSG ended up being the third-place and earnt $100,000 USD. The rest of the $1 Million FPP Tournament Prize Pool Money will be awarded to other teams in accordance to their rankings. Here is the prize pool breakdown –
When it came to the FPP Mode, Team OMG was surprisingly strong. Their teamwork was absolutely unmatched and the entire team stayed alive through many matches. The casters also commented on this and said that they dealt with other teams in a very strategic and controlled manner. In the Day 1 final match, we saw their entire squad being alive till the end of the match, winning the chicken dinner and making it look so easy. In the same match, other teams had not more than 1 to 2 players in the end-game. Team WTSG could have ended up with better rankings in the first day as they had their hands on the AWM Sniper Rifle but their player ended up using it up before the final parts of the end-game.
Here are the final tournament rankings for all teams –
For Individual Player Rankings, Team OMG’s Yao “lionkk” Hao took the cake with both player kills and survival time awards. He survived with a total time of 243 minutes 32 seconds and got 34 kills, marginally higher than other teams. He was hence the strongest player in the PUBG Global Invitational 2018 FPP Tournament and got an extra $20,000 USD prize money! Here are the final individual player rankings for all teams –
Here are some highlights from the event, starting with full coverage of both days. Currently, there aren’t much highlight compilations yet but we’ll update this section as they come out.
Conclusion & Personal Thoughts
The PUBG Global Invitational Berlin 2018 was a great hit, there’s no denying that. What I really noticed was the enormous improvement from the earlier PUBG Tournaments. There were tremendous improvements with the scoring system, spectating of the event, and overall organization of the whole tourney. It wasn’t an easy job if you consider PUBG’s highly varied nature where there’s so much action everywhere at the same time. It’s great to see PUBG Corp get through these problems and I think PUBG’s esports future is very bright.
