Updates to the PUBG Invitational at IEM Katowice Tournament Format
USD $50,000 are on the line February 24-25 when 16 of the world’s best PUBG teams come together at the IEM World Championship in Katowice, Poland, for another iteration of the PUBG Invitational at the Intel® Extreme Masters. As one of the very first offline events being played on the full game version everybody is looking forward to see the different regions and play styles battle it out for the IEM Championship.
Earlier in January, we have announced an update to the tournament format by focusing on Erangel. Following this decision, the main event will now be hosted with eight games instead of ten. The decision to reduce the tournament to eight sets is based on various aspects. It is our goal to provide all the fans on site and at home with the most interesting broadcast possible. Less games allow for the tournament to happen without any extended breaks in between the series for players to rest and have food, which will improve the experience for the players and all fans tuning into the broadcast at home.
