They will face eight representatives from North America and three from Oceania in search of six seats for PGS Berlin, in the capital of Germany, from March 31 to April 12.

More than 100 Latin American teams signed up to participate in the PGS Americas online qualifier, which started with the first two rounds on January 25th and 26th.

The top 22 teams from the initial rounds joined ten guests for their performance in the 2019 season of the LATAM PUBG Pro Series (LPPS). The 32 participants played the 3rd round on the 30th and 31st of January and, divided into two groups, played 12 games (six per day). The top eight places in each switch have passed the stage.

Decisive days

In the 4th round, held this Saturday (1st) and Sunday (2), the 16 finalist teams faced each other in 12 falls (six a day), on the Miramar, Sanhok and Erangel maps.

In PUBG, the dispute system consists of running points, scoring according to the team’s final classification in each game and the number of opponent eliminations.

RED Canids finished the online qualifier in the lead of the overall classification, with 112 points, of which 66 for kills. Matilha won two games, finished 2nd in one and won 3rd place in two others.

“We managed to maintain a good average of points per game. We worked our game well and, with that, we conquered the classification for the United States calmly ”, says Alan“ rustyzera ”Alves, from RED Canids.

100 Medo, on the other hand, came in 2nd place, with 90 points, after winning three games, being in 2nd position in two others and collecting 48 eliminations. The team has Neto “Netenho” Cavalcante.

The 3rd place in the final classification went to Meta Gaming (formerly WClick), which totaled 89 points, 52 from eliminations. In 4th place, Team Rune passed, with 88 points, of which 56 were slaughtered.

EXODIA secured the fifth and final slot for the PGS Berlin: Americas Final by reaching 86 points. The team’s line-up has names like Marcos “v1n1fps” Vinicios and Andrei “ps1co” Carvalho.

Balance and emotion

The online qualifier ended in an exciting way, as in the 12th game, four places were still open – RED Canids had secured the classification. The teams 100 Medo and Singularity occupied the first positions and had a certain advantage.

But small details defined the classifieds. 100 Medo got the score to advance, as did Team Rune. Singularity fell in 3rd on the decisive map, in the middle of a confrontation exactly against direct opponents in the fight for the vacancy. EXODIA won the final clash against Meta Gaming. However, in the end, both entered the top 5.

With the disputes closed, only 4 points separated the 2nd from the 5th place. Singularity was left out of the face-to-face qualification in the United States by only 1 point.

The five teams classified by the online qualifier will participate, alongside eight representatives from North America and three from Oceania, in the PGS Berlin: Americas Final.

Of the 16 teams participating in the face-to-face championship, six will be classified for the PGS Berlin, in the capital of Germany, with a prize of US $ 500 thousand (corresponding to about R $ 2 million).

PGS Berlin is the first in a series of three international competitions of the 2020 season, which will conclude with the PUBG Global Championship (PGC) in November.
