After two weeks of intense competition, PUBG Continental Series 6 (PCS6) Americas is done, and standing tall is Team Soniqs with a $60,000 take home. Making it sweeter is the fact that Soniqs entered the tournament through the Last Chance Qualifier.

In addition to being the champion, team member James “TGLTN” Giezen was named MVP and received an extra $5,000 for being Kill Leader. Not that surprising for he had 61 eliminations, 63 assists, and 13,311 damage during the finals. He also became the first PUBG Esports player to reach 400 career kills.

The PCS6

It was 10 days ago when 16 teams met to see who would take the crown at the PCS6 Americas Grand Final. These 16 teams fought their way from 128 teams. From the Open Qualifiers, Regional Playoffs, and Last Chance Qualifier, they all did their best to show who was the best.

After six days and 30 matches, it was Soniqs that was declared the winner. In addition to the cash prize, the team also earned 450 PUBG Grand Championship (PGC) points. This puts them in a good position to join six teams from the Americas to be part of the PGC, which happens later this year.

Soniqs now grabs the lead in the leaderboard with 545 PGC points. Coming in second is eUnited with 380 and Yaho in third with 300. Fourth place is Grascans with 255 PGC points.

Before the PGC, there are two more major tournaments which are the ESL Masters Phase II in July and PUBG Continental Series 7 in September. The way things are going, it looks like these four teams are in a good position to qualify for PGC.

The PUBG Nations Cup

There’s also one international event happening this June, which is the PUBG Nations Cup. The MVPs of this tournament get guaranteed spots on their nation’s roster. In fact, TGLTN already secured his seat for Australia’s team. Other players who have secured captain’s spots are Daniel "Sharpshot" Hernandez (US), Pedro "sparkingg" Ribeiro (Brazil), Nolan "Shinboi" Burdick (Canada), and mArtins4n (Argentina).

Talking about their win, Soniqs Team Coach Yi “Syllogic” Eon shared that winning the tournament “was rejuvenating.” Heading to the tournament, he added that the goal was to elevate themselves while shaking off the duds. Syllogic revealed that the race is getting heavier at the top of the PGC standings with this win.

PUBG: Battlegrounds is available on PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Stadia, Android, and iOS.
