The PUBG Global Championship 2019 (PGC) is well underway and with the conclusion of the group stage last weekend, there are only 24 teams remaining in this weekends Semifinals to compete for the 16 Grand Final places.
In the Group Stages, there was only ever going to be one winner: VC Gaming played highly aggressive and set the tone for how the rest of the tournament will ‘pan’ out. There were six matches throughout the day and by Match 4, the team had already guaranteed a spot in the Semi’s. And then took the Chicken Dinner in that match too for good measure.
Other standout teams from the Group Stages were The Rumblers, where their players went lonewolf through the matches, and QM Gaming, who went for a more stealth-like approach and earned themselves a continual stream of kills. Match winners also included Armory Gaming, Team Liquid anf Red Canids.
