One of the biggest PUBG Classic events on Asian soil finished with the South Korean team, Gen.G esports winning the title. Here is how Gen.G clinched MET Asia Series: PUBG Classic.
How to win the PUBG event with only one win in the Group Stage?
In any other Esports, it would be hilarious to see a team winning the title with only one win in the Group Stage. However, this “absurdity” is not an exception but almost the rule in Battle Royal Games. That’s exactly how Gen.G manage to win this prestigious event in Asia. After they finished as 8th team in the first round, they won the round 2 on Miramar. Moreover, it’s not like Gen.G had incredible results in the remaining rounds. They finished as 2nd twice, and as 3rd and 4th once.
The runner-ups of MET Asia Series: PUBG Classic, on the other side, were victorious three times throughout 15 rounds. Additionally, they ended as 4th twice. But, nevertheless, it wasn’t sufficient for DP EVGA to surpass Gen.G on the table. They ended the event with 6 points less than the champions of MET Asia Series.
Interestingly enough, ViCi Gaming who had two victories ended just as 14th team, which shows us all the cruelty of Battle Royal Esports.
What does title mean for Gen.G?
Gen.G is not an organization that exists for too long. This is their second big title, as they were victorious at the last even they played, PUBG Korea League Phase 2. The South Korean team took $130,000 home and their share of 25% of in-game items sales. Considering that Esports is very popular in Southeastern Asia, Gen.G must have gotten a decent amount of money from these sales.
The second-placed team, DPG EVGA earned $60,000. This is the most prize money they ever earned from a single event.
