Question Mark Takes The PCS7 Europe Crown!
30 matches of non-stop action have flown by in the PCS7 Europe Grand Finals and we finally have our champions - Question Mark takes the crown!
Question Mark entered PCS7 through the Open Qualifiers and fought all the way to the very top to claim the largest share of the $250,000 prize pool and an automatic qualification to the PUBG Global Championship 2022 in Dubai.
Longtime PCS favorites Northern Lights also put up an impressive performance, coming in second with 210 points, 53 points behind Question Mark’s 263 point total. Polish Power and Fella's both had phenomenal outings, finishing third and fourth respectively overall.
Weekend 1: Slow and Steady Wins the Race
While you wouldn’t dare call Question Mark slow, their progress through the first 15 matches was certainly strong and steady. The ambitious side finished the first weekend in 2nd place, just 3 points below Polish Power, who had an excellent first half of the Grand Finals in their own right. For a team that just about qualified through the Elimination Stage of the Playoffs, they put out an earth-shattering performance.
The first weekend truly was a great time to be a roster that got into PCS7 Europe through the Open Qualifiers. A squad made up of some veteran PUBG Esports players, the Woo, closed out the weekend in 3rd place. Just 5 points behind them was another dark horse of the tournament - win or die - finishing in 4th.
Perhaps the most exciting thing about the first half of the Grand Finals was the fact that by the end of it, most teams still had everything to fight for.
Weekend 2: Creating and Cementing the Lead
All of that changed by the end of Day 4. Question Mark catapulted themselves into a lead that none of the other teams ever came close to contesting. Their performance was impeccable and their 25 point lead quickly turned into a 53 point one by the end of the tournament.
While Question Mark was very much out of reach going into Day 3, 2nd and 3rd place were still up for grabs for anyone willing to challenge Northern Lights and Polish Power. For a brief moment, a qualification to PGC 2022 was on the table for teams like Fella’s and ACEND. They put up a serious fight, with ACEND bringing in 3 Chicken Dinners and Fella’s raking in at a staggering 127 points, but in the end it wasn’t quite enough to secure the runner-up position.
The fight for 2nd place continued with Northern Lights and Polish Power going neck to neck well into the final minutes of the last match. Falling to Northern Lights, Polish Power took 3rd place, which allowed Northern Lights to secure 2nd place in the tournament with a mere 3 point advantage.
Symbolically, the final Chicken Dinner went to the PCS7 Europe champions - Question Mark. As if that wasn’t enough, they also got awarded the Insane Squad title, together with ADOUZ1E becoming the Kill Leader of the tournament after securing 49 kills.
Coming up next is the PUBG Continental Championship 2022, which will see the eight Europe region teams face off against the top 24 teams from the other 3 regions in the PUBG Esports ecosystem, and ultimately for a share of the $2,000,000 prize pool.
The teams representing Europe will be Question Mark, Northern Lights Team, Entropiq, FaZe Clan, Polish Power, Natus Vincere, OVERPEEKERS and BBL Esports.
PGC 2022 will be an offline LAN tournament, broadcast live from Dubai 1 - 20 November.
See you on the Battlegrounds!
