The second day of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds action at the Haymarket Theater in Leicester, England highlighted some of the most bittersweet moments in PUBG esports.
When the day starts off with a player being chased around the map by a car, a man drowning in an ocean while another keeps tabs on him with a shotgun, and players killing their own teammates by running into them with a vehicle, you know you’re set for a good time.
After Team Liquid’s dominant start yesterday, they were mostly subdued by other teams lower in the standings at the start of the day. O1ne, Team Redzone, and Pittsburgh Knights all got their first win at the finals today.
Day two was a tale of two teams, however. Welcome to South George (formerly Team Kinguin) and Pittsburgh Knights earned great placements throughout the day to shoot themselves up to the top of the table alongside Team Liquid.
WTSG secured two wins throughout the day and would have finished at the top of the leaderboard if it wasn’t for Team Liquid’s second-place finish in the final match of the day.
Rogue, who scored two victories yesterday, and FaZe Clan, one of the best PUBG squads in the world, failed to live up to the hype on the second day with poor finishes across the board.
With a final day of competition and five games left out of the initial 15, everything is still left to play for. But as it stands, Team Liquid, Knights, and WTSG have created a huge gap at the top of the table as they look to secure their spots in Berlin next month.
