It’s been a good couple of weeks for the PUBG Global Invitational.S. Fans around the world have been treated to some exciting matches and so far, it seems that Four Angry Men is sitting on the top spot.

With the tournament now halfway, that means things are switching up with the Survival Tournament. It’s going to start on March 5 and run through March 7. This part of the tournament will test the combat skills of each team with awards points given for both placements and kills.

Prize Pool

Let’s start with the prize pool. After all, the Survival Tournament isn’t just about which team has the best combat skills but also a chance to earn some extra cash. The total prize pool is $60,000 and divided as follows:

  • 1st: $30,000
  • 2nd: $15,000
  • 3rd: $10,000
  • 4th: $5,000

Match Format

The 32 teams taking part in the PGI.S are split into eight groups having four teams each. The grouping is based on the team’s current standings in the tournament. Each match has three rounds with the SUPER point system. Points earned are:

  • Top teams receive 10, 6, 5, or 4 placement points.
  • Players earn an additional point for each kill earned during the match.
  • The team with the highest point total at the end of three rounds wins the match.

For the first two days, the winners of each group move to the Quarterfinals. The schedule is:

  • March 5 (Day 1 / Round of 32)
    • Group Match A
    • Group Match B
    • Group Match C
    • Group Match D
  • March 6 (Day 2 / Round of 32)
    • Group Match E
    • Group Match F
    • Group Match G
    • Group Match H

The Quarterfinal and Final are all scheduled on March 7 with the format being:

  • Quarterfinal - 1st and 2nd place of each group advance to the final
    • Quarterfinal Group A (Winners of the group match A, B, C, D)
    • Quarterfinal Group B (Winners of the group match E, F, G, H )
  • Final
    • 1st and 2nd place of Quarterfinal Group A
    • 1st and 2nd place of Quarterfinal Group B

Match Settings

The matches are going to be in TPP on Erangel. It has special bluezone timers to allow faster and shorter matches.

The first bluezone starts with a diameter of 2.5 kilometers and is shown as players start to fly over Erangel providing heads-up to plan their drop. The overall zone size then shrinks to the final circle in fewer phases, resulting in around a 13-minute match time.

The speed at which the circle shrinks gives players enough time to perform the necessary movements.

There’s also no redzone or care package with damage in the bluezone increased. That means teams need to always be on the move and get into fights.
