Kings of Europe

There were two ways of qualifying for the Global Championships; win Phase 3 in your respective region, or be in the top 5 of cumulative points from Phases 2 and 3. In the PUBG Europe League, FaZe Clan was first in both. This team has now been playing together for a full year and have been consistently near the top of tournaments they’ve participated in.

The last international event they played was the GLL Grand Slam: PUBG Classic where they finished first. FaZe Clan has dominated Europe and have done so by regularly finding their way into late-game circles. They have a knack for surviving the early game, and racking up kills along the way. Even when they appear to be in poor situations, their ability to rotate is currently unmatched in the PEL.

They led Phase 3 of the PEL with 462 kills in 96 matches and their star player Ubah dealt the most damage in the entire league.

Tempo Storm Three-peat in NA

Much like FaZe Clan, Tempo Storm has absolutely dominated their region. They are far and away the strongest North American team heading into the Global Championships after winning all three phases of the National PUBG League.

Based on their North American results, you’d think they’d have better odds. However, when it comes to performing internationally, the NA squad has had some disappointing results. At both the FACEIT Global Summit: PUBG Classic and the GLL Grand Slam: PUBG Classic, Tempo Storm failed to make it into the top 10. Clearly their NA results are no fluke but they’ve yet no prove that they can perform against the best of Europe, China and Korea.

The Power of Pio

As far as Korea goes, OGN Entus Force won Phase 3 of the PKL, but Gen. G is the team to watch. They placed a respectable sixth in Phase 3 and prior to that they won the MET Asia Series, and also finished first in Phase 2 by over 50 points. When they won Phase 2, Gen. G were killing machines.

A lot of that killing power comes from their star player Pio who is regularly in the top 3 in kills per match and damage per match. He has the ability to take over games and if Pio is on point, it wouldn’t be surprising to see Gen. G at the top.

The Chinese Fan Favorites

Anytime Four Angry Men are at a tournament, they’re a team that you have to watch out for. Aside from their crazy fan base, the Chinese squad just won the PUBG Champions League 2019 Summer Playoffs. Outside of that, it hasn’t been a huge year as 4AM only has one other top 5 finish in 2019.

Regardless, ggscore.com still has them as the eighth-best team in the world and enter the Global Championships off of a big win. I think 4AM is worth a bet here as PUBG can be a streaky game. There’s a lot of variance in PUBG and it takes more than one good game to win it all at the Global Championship. 4AM is coming in hot, and they’ve shown an insane ability to come in clutch in the past.

Pick: Four Angry Men (+1100)
