Gen.G esports made history as the first winner of the PUBG Global Championship 2019. This tournament serves as the final event of the 2019 Competitive Season. As the champion, Gen.G gets to take home $2 million.

The tournament started last November 8 with 32 of the world's best PUBG teams fighting it out. During the Group Stage, Group A included OGN Entus Ace and FaZe Clan finishing on top. Gen.G just managed to get to 7th place in the group. For Group B, it was Team SoloMid in first, followed by Four Angry Men.

The bottom eight of each Group didn't face immediate elimination, however, as some of them still had a chance with the Elimination Stage. This stage saw Team Liquid and G2 Esports eliminated with VC Gaming and Global Esports Xsset in the top two spots.

The next stage was the semifinals where the teams were divided into three groups. The top 16 of the groups then moved to the Grand Finals. At the end of this stage, it was Team SoloMid and Lazarus among the top teams. Gen.G managed to move forward in ninth place.

In the first round of the Grand Finals, Gen.G took the top spot while recording 13 kills. The second round also saw Gen.G finish at the top. After that, the team struggled for the next few rounds. Gen.G eventually managed to get good results in the 7th and 8th rounds. Gen.G managed to hold on just enough, and in the last round scored 10 kills in order to claim the championship.

PUBG Corporation Director of Central Esports Jake Sin shared that 2019 has been an amazing year for PUBG esports. He went on to say that the tournament "provided excitement for our players, fans, and community, and we'd like to congratulate Gen.G and the rest of our competitors for making this an incredible event.

While this does mark the end of the season, this year offered a lot of exciting moments and storylines. Just last summer, for example, Team Russia managed to take home the National Cup title. Overall, the tournament had $6 million in its prize pool. The PUBG Esports 2020 season is set to begin just next month in December.
