With its cutthroat Last Chance phase ending on Nov. 26, PUBG Mobile Global Championship’s competition-packed League stage has finally come to an end, seeding some of the best-performing teams from across the world into the high-stakes Grand Finals phase—in addition to two direct invites.

The tournament began on Nov. 2 with the group phase, featuring 48 teams, divided into three groups. Each group played 24 matches, and the top three teams of each group at the end of the stage were promoted to the Grand Finals. The fourth to eleventh-placed teams in the groups were seeded to the survival stage, while the remaining teams were eliminated.

The survival stage, held between Nov. 22 and Nov. 24, saw 24 teams battle it out for a place in PMGC’s Last Chance phase. Only 16 teams advanced to the last chance phase, while the remaining were eliminated. Finally, the last chance phase featured the 16 standing teams from the survival stage who fought for their only hope to grab a spot in the finals. Only five teams from the last chance phase were promoted to the Grand Finals.

Now, the Grand Finals is set to be held in Istanbul, Turkey at the Ülker Sports and Event Hall between Dec. 8 and Dec. 10, featuring a total of sixteen promising rosters.
