Esports is becoming more and more popular replacing the traditional outdoor games at a very fast pace. Because, one does not need real football or rugby skills but probably nothing more than a mobile phone to become an international player, eSports suits more now. And while not when you get to hear the eSports tournament offers $2M as prize money.
Indeed, on such a large scale, PUBG brings an invitational tournament with $2 million prize pool. One of its own kind, this is the first global eSports PUBG tournament. There is no online multiplayer game as popular as PUBG right now. Therefore, involving real players would certainly offer the boost PUBG needs and eSports segment needs.
