PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds (PUBG) could become a great esport, but not today
Feb. 2, 2018

PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds (PUBG) has become incredibly popular on PC and has even managed to conquer the most played CS: GO slot machine, but the team that accompanies it wants to take it to the big stage of electronic sports. It is a good game, but it requires more optimization and development, and it is not yet where it should be for the world of electronic sports. This does not mean that it will never happen, but there is still work to be done.


PUBG is pushed to esports, whether it is ready or not.


The problem with PUBG is the developer and publisher - PUBG Corp. or Bluehole both are pushing the game into the territory of Esport, whether it is ready or not. The tournaments are already underway with organizations that create lists for future events. As it is, even with recent shows, PUBG is not a very good show. There is too much action to follow. Consider the size of the map, a hundred players and a single camera to keep track of everything.


The future of PUBG


Will PUBG be as big as CS: GO, League of Legends and Dota 2 in e-sports? It is an impossible question, simply because it depends on the viewers to know if an online game is successful or not. When people gather for PUBG tournaments, everything will be fine. If not, then PUBG Corp. and Bluehole focuses on the perfection of the multiplayer experience and works on additional features to extend longevity as a player game.
