Welcome to PUBG Esports Europe 2022
Hello PUBG Esports fans!
2021 was another memorable year for PUBG Europe Esports—Virtus.pro dominated regional competition with victories at PCS4 and PCS5, while HEROIC, Team Liquid, ENCE, NAVI, BBL Esports, and FaZe Clan also shone on the world stage at the PUBG Global Championship.
But the circle has already started closing on 2022, and we’re excited to reveal more information about what’s lined up for Europe this year.
Check out our roadmap video HERE and read on to discover how you can drop into the battle!
We’re kicking off the competitive year in February with the first of two G-Loot events, followed by PUBG Continental Series 6 Europe in April.
We couldn’t be more excited to announce the return of the PUBG Nations Cup this June. At PNC 2019, Team Russia put on a tactical masterclass to claim the world championship title and confirm Europe as the world’s strongest region (okay, we might be a little biassed).
The regional action continues with the second G-Loot event in the Summer, quickly followed by PCS7 in September. Catch your breath fast, as we’ll be closing out the year in style at the PUBG Global Championship 2022 in November.
Back on the Road… to PGC
The dust has settled on the PUBG Global Championship 2021. A new champion has been crowned, new stars have taken their places among the PUBG esports elite, and now we’re ready to go again!
To earn a place at the year’s biggest Battle Royale esports event, Europe’s teams will need to acquire all-important PGC Points. Introduced last year, PGC Points are earned by competing in premier regional esports events. The squads with the most points at the end of the year will earn places at PGC, where they’ll face off against the world’s best rosters. PGC Points will be awarded at PCS6, PCS7, and both G-Loot events in 2022.
The winner of PCS7 will also be guaranteed one of Europe’s slots at PGC 2022, so even if your favourite team is short on points heading into the final event, they’ll still have a chance to qualify.
PUBG Continental Series Europe 2022
The PUBG Continental Series is back, as teams from Europe, the Americas, Asia, and APAC battle it out for regional dominance and a share of $250,000 per event. Once again in Europe, matches will be played online and challengers of all skill levels can participate via Open Qualifiers. Do you have what it takes to mix it with the best?
2021 saw players from 66 different countries sign up to compete in PCS Europe events, so to ensure that everyone has the best possible opportunity to put their skills on display, we will continue to feature three sub-regional Qualifiers and Regional Playoffs – Europe West, Europe East, and Middle East & Africa. Competitors who battle through qualifiers will face teams from their home region for a seed into each PCS Europe Grand Final. Qualifiers for PCS6 begin in March, so get your squad together and prepare to drop in!
The full format will be revealed closer to PCS6, however we’re excited to share that S.U.P.E.R. Points will return as the official scoring system in 2022.
The PUBG Esports third-party event calendar remains packed through 2022, where we’ll be supporting tournaments of all sizes across the PUBG Europe ecosystem. In addition to two major competitions awarding PGC Points, third-party events will again contribute directly to the PGC qualification journey by offering Wildcards for PCS6 and PCS7. By placing in the top ranks at select tournaments, teams can book direct slots into their respective Regional Playoffs.
More details on Wildcard availability will be shared in upcoming third-party tournament announcements.

It all leads to this. The PUBG Global Championship 2022 challenges the best of the best to rise above pro players from across the world and emerge as Battlegrounds royalty. Plenty of teams will have 2021 winners NewHappy in their sights, but with a year of PUBG Esports ahead of us, it’s impossible to predict who the frontrunners will be in November.
See you on the Battlegrounds!
