ESL PUBG PC Tournament FAQ
The ESL PUBG tournament system is where players do not get kicked out of the tournament after one match. Instead, players will participate in multiple matches each round. Once a full round is finished, we will combine the placement scores and kill points from players. With fewer players in the tournament, you will be playing against more skilled and competitive players as you progress to the final round.
How does it work?
- Tournament schedule and lobby information is available through the ESL PUBG Discord tournament announcement channel.
|Tournament Schedule Example:
Here is our schedule for today's tournament:
Round 1 (Best of 3 Matches): 3 groups, top 5 qualify for round 2
Round 2 (Best of 3 Matches): 1 group
- Each round has multiple matches:
If you lose early in a match, do not give up - you are still participating in the tournament! Pay attention to the Discord announcement channel for your next lobby information.
- You earn points through the combination of your match placement points and kill points.
- At the end of each round, the total points of your played matches is displayed on the tournament's "Rankings" page.
- The top teams will move into the next round, others will be eliminated. Tournaments are normally running in single bracket unless announced.
- Teams and players will continue to battle and be eliminated until the last round is left with 1 group.
