The PUBG Global Championship 2019 (PGC) continued over the weekend as the Semifinals were held at OGN Arena. After three days of heated action, sixteen teams from around the world punched their tickets to the Grand Finals in Oakland, California (Nov. 23-24), where they will battle it out for the ultimate chicken dinner – a $3 million USD prize pool.
The PGC Semifinals narrowed the field down to a compelling group of front runners and underdogs for the Grand Finals. Faze Clan, an early favorite, was nearly eliminated, but a spectacular 18-kill chicken dinner in the last match of the weekend was just enough to get them to Oakland. Meanwhile, upstarts like Lazarus, The Rumblers and WClick made their presence felt, with Lazarus having a particularly impressive showing and scoring the most points during the Semifinals.
