Player Unknown’s Battlegrounds has sold seven million copies to date, and has hit a peak of seven hundred thousand concurrent players on Steam. This all for a game that is still in Early Access which is not feature complete! Not only that, at Gamescom Microsoft announced that the game will be published by them for what is likely a timed exclusive for the XBox One family of consoles.
We have been playing the game at the Nexus, with two of our sessions streaming on the Nexus Twitch channel (search for Nexus_Digital), with varying degrees of success. To celebrate the game, we will be holding a PUBG tournament on 9 September 2017 at The Nexus in Randburg.
The Nexus PUBG competition is Powered by Ryzen and proudly sponsored by AMD.
The tournament will be organised as follows:
• Tournament to start at 10am;
• Tournament open to all;
• We have eight slots open for people who do not own the game and up to 8 more for people who do own the game and wish to log in to their own Steam Accounts;
• Please note that you have to log in at The Nexus on one of the provided LAN computers and not from home.
• You can, however, bring your own peripherals if you so wish
• The first game will be on an open server with players free to solo or squad up so as to get used to the mechanics. This is the practice round;
• The Tournament will commence thereafter with players joining a normal match on an open server;
• Formal team-ups will not be allowed i.e. the tournament is solo play only;
• Games to be played in third person only;
• There will be two rounds;
• The highest average placement among the competitors over the two rounds will be declared the winner of the Ryzen 5 1600X;
• Please be aware that Nexus will be streaming the tournament on Twitch and uploading the video to YouTube.
That’s it. Simply PM me (Magius on the site) if you wish to enter as well as if you will be logging into your own account or using one of the accounts that we have setup.
