PUBG Lazarus Leads the Way Heading Into PGC Grand Final

Lazarus had a fantastic semifinal performance and took the first seed heading into the grand finals. The team earned 106 points while the next closest team had 97 points.

The team had favorable circles in most of their matches which can make or break any team. They even had a bone-crunching fight against FaZe Clan, wiping the enemy team.

Here were the winners of each semifinal:

Match 1 (Erangel) – Lazarus
Match 2 (Erangel) – QM
Match 3 (Erangel) – QM
Match 4 (Sanhok) – Tempo Storm
Match 5 (Miramar) – Lazarus
Match 6 (Miramar) – FaZe Clan

Here are the 16 teams that qualified for the grand finals:

  1. Lazarus 
  2. QM Gaming 
  3. Four Angry Men 
  4. Team SoloMid 
  5. Global Esports Xsset 
  6. VC Gaming 
  7. WClick 
  8. Tempo Storm 
  9. Gen.G esports 
  10. OGN Entus Force 
  11. OGN Entus Ace
  12. Natus Vincere  
  13. Genesis 
  14. The Rumblers 
  15. T1 
  16. FaZe Clan 

FaZe Clan has to be the biggest surprise of the tournament and not in a good way. Considered to be one of the most talented teams in PUBG, the brand almost missed out on qualifying all together. The team had one chance in the last match and it responded with a map win.

The grand finals will be roughly the same format as the semifinals, but with less teams. There will be twelve total matches over two days (six each day). Whoever scores the most points wins $1 million dollars. The finals will begin on Nov. 23.
