PUBG Continental Series (PCS) 2 Europe Grand Finals played out during the past weekend, resulting in a fantastic performance and a victory that was almost secured one match before the last. Spoilers regarding the results will follow.

FaZe Clan won PCS 2 Europe Grand Finals and claimed the largest portion of the $200,000 prize pool. David "Fuzzface" Persson, Ivan "ubah" Kapustin, Ludvik "Aitzy" Jahnsen and Gustav "Gustav" Blond showed up big in the last day of the competition to overcome the strong rivals and prevail.

There were three weekends of competition in total. It was Natus Vincere who came out with a lead after the first weekend, with 73 points under their belt, followed by ShiftW. The latter were particularly notable since they are a team that came from open qualifiers as opposed to being invited directly and as you will see later, the opening weekend result wasn't a fluke.

Days 3 and 4 were the ones that favoured FaZe, and especially ubah, who scored an impressive triple kill with a precise grenade throw which eventually saw them jump into the first place. However, Team Liquid followed closely and would briefly take the top spot, making sure that FaZe still had to fight for their prize.

The final day of PCS 2 Grand Finals saw FaZe, ENCE and shiftW duking it out at the top of the table initially but Team Liquid ended up being the most serious contender for the top spot in the end.

Their aforementioned lead was by six points but FaZe Clan kept their high-kill performance during the final day and by the end of the second-last match, their victory in the tournament was all but guaranteed. They only needed to outlast TL. 

It is exactly what happened in the final match as Team Liquid were knocked out quickly and didn't even make it into the top 10, allowing FaZe to win the tournament by 22-point lead. TSM came in third but the prodigies from the open qualifier, ShiftW, trailed only one point behind them and finished in fourth.

Fans will not have to wait long for another round of breakneck esports since PCS 3 registrations are already open.
