PGC 2019 – Semifinals DAY 1 Recap

OGN Entus Force Claims Miramar     

Today was the start of the PGC Semifinals with Group A and Group B delivering a thrilling day with heart thumping action. 

Focused And Fearless

TSM made it known they were just getting warmed up last week in the Group Stages. By Match 3 TSM had a 10 kill lead and showed no signs of slowing down. They did the bulk of their dirty work early on in the first three matches with Iroh in his element on Erangel dropping bodies with ease. Just like we saw in the Group Stage, they employed greedy and bold tactics, picking a fight with anyone in their way. 

Also ending the day on a high note was Na’Vi (Natus Vincere). They took the first map of the day and played very confidently from there on out. This confidence had them going toe to toe with VC Gaming and TSM. After today, Adouzie has several clutch kills under his belt.

 

Rumblin’ Tummies

The Rumblers came close to Chicken Dinner glory several times today with three second place finishes. “They terrify me, these boys” was how caster Pansy described the sentiment on the performance The Rumblers turned in today. Making news before they even set foot on the battleground, The Rumblers were a last minute invite to the PGC. Their luck continued today in Match 3 with a vicious Phase 2 circle that landed right into The Rumblers lap.

From that point on, the Rumblers were playing very comfortably while everyone else had to scramble to the zone. Able to make their way out of the madness unscathed was Tempo Storm who ended up in the final throes with the The Rumblers. With a little patience and good rotation, Tempo Storm had their dinner. Both teams had a strong day in their home arena driving NPL fans wild with hype.

Speaking of North America, Lazarus earned some props for this stellar, classic PUBG bridge setup on Sanhok:

Who Owns Miramar?

Miramar is often the map that NPL teams excel on, including Lazarus and The Rumblers. However, the final two wins of the day on Miramar went to OGN Entus Force much to the delight of PKL fans. Take a look at OGN Entus Force’s Indigo in a 1v1 with the fan-favorite from Genesis, Kaymind.
