PUBG Continental Series 3 Europe Grand Finals has concluded and the victors have been crowned. Possibly more important to them, the team took quite the chunk of change home.
PCS 3 Grand Finals saw 16 of the most competitive European teams battling it out for the largest portion of the $200,000 prize pool and it was Northern Light who managed to feat. The team consisting of Yaroslav ‘spyrro’ Kuvichko, Aleksandr ‘BatulinS’ Batulin, Dmytro ‘Perfect1ks’ Dubeniuk and Kirill ‘Lu’ Lukianov won their second trophy this year, after being the crowned winners of PCS Europe Charity Showdown in the earlier part of 2020.
While the prize pool itself is sizeable, the final payout will be a bit bigger since 25 per cent of the revenue from Pick'Em Challenge and associated item sales will be distributed among the teams.
As for the event itself, it was three teams who set themselves up for success early on. Northern Lights, Tornado Energy and Digital Athletics soared up in ranks and wrapped up the first weekend with just 10 points between them.
Northern Lights and Digital Athletics kept their form up and won two more matches in the following weekend, with FaZe Clan and Na'Vi claiming the other two showdowns. Digital Athletics' CodeMarco and FaZe Clan's Fuzzface provided performances worthy of the hall of fame with the former's team scoring nine kills in a single match but FaZe overshadowed them with 13 in their own spectacle.
Northern Lights and Digital Athletics set themselves up as the most prominent teams on Day 6 where the champions-to-be took the first game but knocked out early in the following one, which Digital Athletics took for themselves. However, their good form was outperformed by Team Liquid who eventually won the last two games which secured them the runner-up spot.
With this one, the PCS tournaments of 2020 have concluded and the next competition is the big one - PUBG Global Invitational (PGI.S), which will take place in South Korea with $3.5 million prize pool.
