The PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds was finally released after spending a lot of time in beta testing. Over the last couple of months, players have complained about various issues and the number of active people subsided as a result. So far, the game was able to maintain the growing trend because new players jumped on the bandwagon, therefore offsetting the impact of those leaving.
In 2018 new patches are scheduled and the game is expected to make its debut in the highly competitive eSports arena. A couple of tournament organizers have already announced their intention of hosting such competitions in the first quarter of the next year. StarLadder has teamed up with ImbaTV and together they will run the StarSeries i-League PUBG.
StarSeries i-League PUBG starts on March 1
Players don’t have to wait much longer for the first competitive tournament of the year to kick off as it is scheduled for March 1. It will run until March 4 and it will have a guaranteed prize pool of $100,000 which is a lot of money for a new game. The event will take place in Ukraine at the Kiev Cybersports Arena, where PUBG has plenty of fans. A total of 16 teams will be invited to the event and they will receive a share of the aforementioned guaranteed prize pool.
North America will have the most teams, with a total of four squads being invited. Europe and China will have three representatives and two more teams from the CIS and one from Asia will participate. The other regions that will have players fighting for supremacy in Ukraine are Oceania, South East Asia and South America, each with one team.
