The Player Unknown’s Battlegrounds Europe League has come to an end for 2019. After six grueling weeks of competition, FaZe Clan have risen above the rest and are the Champions for the second straight phase.
Compiling 51 points across the final six matches, the squad delivered another iconic “FaZe Sunday” performance.

FaZe Clan have been the epitome of consistency this phase, finishing within the top half on nearly every day. Their performance has net them a total of 744 points, 30 points clear of second place.
With this win, FaZe secure the $100,000 first place prize and an automatic qualifier for the PUBG Global Championship in Oakland and Los Angeles starting Nov 8.
The other five European squads who qualified alongside FaZe have also been decided. Qualification was based on a point total from a combination of the second and third phases.
Europe’s representatives at the Global Championship are:
FaZe Clan – Auto-Qualify (728.1 points)
Team Liquid – 702.9 points
Natus Vincere – 656.4 points
Team SoloMid – 642.8 points
G2 Esports – 602.9 points
CrowCrowd – 587 points
Overall, the lineup is incredibly stacked. There are many big-name players and organizations who will be present at PGC 2019. Something to note is that Faze, Liquid, Na’vi, and G2 all came into phase 3 with between 205 and 212 points.
TSM and CrowCrowd needed a much more impressive third phase to qualify. CrowCrowd even stole the show during the final week, stealing the top overall spot with 58 points.
The new pushing out the old
While it is always interesting to see a new organization come in and make an international event, that place comes at the cost of the Ninjas in Pyjamas who fell just outside qualification.
For the first time in the squad’s history (from back when they were named Welcome to South George), they will miss out on the PUBG Global Championship.
With the PUBG Europe League, National PUBG League, PUBG Champions League China, and PUBG SEA Championship all finished, the competitive year is beginning to draw to a close.
Even so, there is excitement on the horizon with the Korean league and smaller regional leagues concluding soon. All this leads up to PGC 2019, where 32 teams from around the globe will battle it out to determine who is the best in the world. Don’t miss out on this once a year spectacle!
