Best of the west – four more for the PGS Europe Qualifier final
In a weekend of high tension and late drama, Elgiganten Gaming came out on top at the PGS Berlin: Europe West Qualifiers – with the remaining spots being secured by YMCA Esports, Inside Games and ADR Farmers.
Despite strong performances across the board it was far from an easy ride, with all four teams having everything to play for as they entered into the final battle on Sunday night. And although none of the sides finished in the top two in match 12 – with Czech squad Inside Games eliminated in 16th position – their consistent performances over the whole weekend meant they had each done just enough to progress to the PGS Berlin: Europe Qualifier final.
As is often the case in these high intensity matches, the line between victory and defeat was thin. NO TAG TEAM came a devastating one kill from qualifying, while the top four looked to their key fraggers to steer them through the weekend.
YMCA Esports’ TurboBanaani and Inside Games’ Petr ‘Zampeek’ Zampach will be delighted with their contributions, finishing with 19 kills each, but the tournament’s standout player was Polish side Elgiganten Gaming’s Marcel ‘Marcelek’ Nietopiel who topped the charts with an impressive 21 kills.
With the online qualifiers wrapped up, the squads will make their way to Germany for the PGS Berlin: Europe Qualifier final from March 6-8. There, they’ll be joined by 20 more of the region’s top sides to battle it out for one of the 6 qualifying spots at the first PUBG Global Series event of the year.
