With the victory in PUBG tournament from Shoot to Kill, the team claimed the first-place prize of $50,000 USD. Meanwhile, the other 15 teams divided up the remaining $200,000 from the prize pool among them based on the placements that they were able to get in the series.
From the onset, it looked like Wildcard Gaming was going to be the victors of the lengthy two-week series, but STK was able to pull through during the final match and win it in a very close and shocking one. After all, the teams were tied for points and Wildcard was able to get many more placement points, including a whopping six chicken dinners.
On the other hand, STK was only able to get three wins during the event, which is the same as what the fourth-placed team Oath was able to do. They did make up for this, though, in having the most kill points out of the 16 teams that competed.
PUBG Continental Series 2 Details Now Revealed
If you were unable to watch the intense matches live as they happened over the two weeks, be sure to head on over to the PUBG Esports YouTube channel where the matches are available on-demand. Otherwise, with Continental Series 1 over, we now have the PUBG Continental Series 2 to look forward to.
The second major series for the 2020 season isn’t too far away, as it will happen at the end of this month, beginning Friday, July 24 and taking place across the following three weekends. The competition will happen every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday with a similar format to the first series.
The teams will be split into groups of eight, with three groups in total that will be competing during the two weeks. How the seeding and initial placements of the teams will work is based on the final placings of the 16 teams from the first series plus the addition of the top eight teams from the North American Challenger Cup.
Each of the three groups will play two days of matches in each of the three weekends with five matches on each of those days for a grand total of 10 matches for each weekend. After the three weeks are over, the top 16 teams will then compete in the PCS2 Grand Finals NA tournament to determine who will be the overall champion of that series.
PUBG Continental Series 2 Prize Pool and Grand Finals Dates
The grand finals will have a similar prize pool and set up to the previous series that just finished with a massive $200,000 prize pool on the line. The victors of that PUBG event, like Shoot to Kill, will win $50,000 while it will diminish from there to $2,000 for the 15th and 16th-placed teams.
On the other hand, there will be a $50,000 prize pool that will be available during the group stage of the competition plus some extra prizes for those players who get the most kills, damage, teams with the most wins, tournament MVP, and so on.
The PUBG Continental Series 2 Grand Finals are currently set to happen soon after the conclusion of the group stage from August 27-September 4. And this is only for the North American tournament.
