The results are in and Gen.G GOLD have won the Third Person Perspective leg of the 2018 PUBG Global Invitational! After several tense standoffs with second place winners Team Liquid, they were able to secure the #1 spot with a commanding lead of 605 points. GOLD takes home the first place prize of $400,000 USD and EscA, who led the pack to earn the Intel Awards for Most Kills and Longest Survivor, walked away with $20,000 in bonus cash. A big congratulations to Gen.G GOLD!
While the lead for first place was fairly commanding going into the final round, some would say the real battle was for second and third place. Team Liquid, Welcome to South Georgo, OMG, and Pittsburgh Knights all fought hard in the final rounds to capture and hold the remaining big money placings. In the end, Team Liquid held on to second by a mere 40 points over WTSG who scored high with a chicken dinner in the last game.
