In about two weeks, we will be kicking off our IEM Oakland PUBG Invitational! We are very excited to bring top tier players to compete in front a huge live audience in Oakland, California. IEM stands for Intel Extreme Masters and is a series of international esports tournaments run by ESL. A record breaking number of people from all over the world compete and watch the IEM tournaments and we are very proud that PUBG is now part of this truly global show. This is the first stadium event for us and we are thrilled to share this experience with our community in a series of eight games. We believe that the format of an eight game set will help determine which team truly is the best by displaying consistent performances, and we’re really excited to try this new format during such an amazing event. Twelve teams were invited and eight teams secured their spots through the online qualifiers for a chance to win a total prize pool of $200,000. We will have great matches to watch, free swag to give out, and two whole days of chicken dinners!
