PUBG Global Invitational 2018 infographics

PlayerUnknown's Battleground frankly loses the war to Fortnite, PUBG loses a lot of players monthly. However, PUBG has a hidden ace in the sleeve — esports. PUBG Global Invitational 2018 passed recently, so let’s watch the statistics.

PUBG Global Invitational 2018 with a $3.000.000 prize pool became the most popular tournament in the PUBG esports history. It is worth to note that the level of the organization has grown incredibly since the first tournament — Gamescom PUBG Invitational 2017.

The popularity of PUBG Global Invitational 2018 is easy to explain, but there are a lot of unforeseen funny facts and details. For example, the tournament was extremely popular in Vietnam — sometimes there were more Vietnamese viewers than English. It happened despite the fact that the team from Vietnam wasn’t actually good or strong.

On the second day of the FPP (First Person Perspective) viewers understood that it is easy to get some cosmetic ingame lootboxes if you just watch the official broadcast. It could be one of the reasons of a serious growth of viewership from China. A lot of new viewers came for sure, but also many Chinese fans watched the tournament using several devices at once in order to increase the chances to get a lootbox. Not only the Chinese tried to abuse the system, but also Twitch users — there were 225% more people in chat then viewers in total.

Charity Showdown was the most popular PUBG Global Invitational 2018 event among viewers not from China. It happened as the most famous streamers like Ninja, Shroud, DrDisRespect, Sacriel, Rubiu5, Moondye joined it.
