Its been a long time coming but Player Unknown Battle Grounds is no longer in Beta!
2017 saw RFLAN running the PUBG beta as a Major tournament. We had NO IDEA that it would be as popular as it was with some of the highest levels of participation ever and over half the attendees playing it most of the LAN!
Now as it was a beta, naturally the tournament had it’s fair share of complications (servers dropping, game updates etc) we know… it sucked, however we learnt valuable lessons from these issues ready for next time.
RF60 will be the first RFLAN that sees PUBG official release running as a Headlining Tournament!
If you’re like me and super keen to get that sweet, sweet chicken dinner at RFLAN there’s a few things you’ll need to know.
Our feedback last event showed that lanners were disappointed that they were unable to compete in many tournaments due to the PUBG tournament taking so long. To resolve this we have changed the way we will approach PUBG for this event.
For each game type (Solos, Squads and Duos), we will be running Morning, Afternoon and Evening qualifying brackets. Each Qualifying bracket will be treated like it’s own mini tournament however the top positions move into the finals which will be held late in the evening for the least conflict with other tournaments. You may join whichever bracket suits your day best however remember positions in each bracket are limited.
Please do not join more than one bracket in each game type (Solos, Duos, Squads) otherwise you will be removed from whichever bracket the games-admin decides without notification.
This means you can play in all three game types but can only play in one qualifier of each plus the final if you qualify.
- If you are competing in CS:GO, you will want to register for the Morning PUBG Qualifier as CS:GO starts shortly afterwards and goes till late.
- If you are planning to compete in Overwatch 6v6, you should also register for the Morning PUBG SQUADS bracket as the Overwatch 6v6 begins straight after and goes for some time.
There will be no prizes for the Qualifying brackets, only the winners of the Finals.
The map will be Mirramar in Daylight weather conditions and First Person Perspective.
The following top positions will be taken from each qualifying bracket and entered into the Finals;
|Game Type||Top positions||Total Players|
So to summarize:
- Pick one of the Morning, Afternoon or Evening qualifying brackets for each game type to compete in
- Make sure if you are in the top positions listen above, that you are around for the Finals! Check the schedule for details regarding the finals
- Get your chicken dinner.
