Another PUBG event has come and gone. After eight games and two days of competition when the dust finally settled, Avangar was crowned the winner of the PUBG IEM Katowice Invitational.
Over the course of the weekend, Avanger battled it out with the top teams in PLAYERUNKNOWN’S BATTLEGROUNDS. They went head to head with OpTic Gaming over the course of the weekend, as the two teams fought to take home the first place prize. Going into the second day of the event, OpTic Gaming was in the lead. However, after an amazing 16-kill game, Avanger was able to secure first place.
Unfortunately, after being the first team eliminated in the last match Avangar – which consists of Aleksey “0nuqtive” Trufanov, Adlet “keeN” Nurseitov, Komissarov “Drainys” Sviatoslav, and Zhandos “MuMiNo” Omarov – had to watch as OpTic Gaming and FaZe Clan battled it out in the final match. Avanger was all the while hoping that OpTic Gaming would not secure enough points to take the lead.
After the scores from the last match where tallied up, Avangar managed to keep their spot in first place and take home the main share of the $50,000 prize pool.
Overall, the PUBG IEM Katowice Invitational proved that even though the game is experiencing growing pains, such as the developers having to battle cheaters, the game still has a strong future as an eSports title.
