PUBG has seen many tournaments and championships dedicated to it. Recently, ESL – the biggest independent eSports company in the world – has also organized a competitive tournament for PUBG Mobile, called PUBG Mobile Star Challenge (PMSC). This is the first tournament that follows the eSports format for this famous mobile title. Registration for this tournament began on September 1, 2018, and it welcomed all participants, from professional gamers to streamers to amateurs with confidence in their skills. Participants compete in one of the six major regions: Europe, Asia, China, Japan & Korea, North America, and South America. Winners of each region will then battle each other in the global tournament.
