See your favorite players out of their comfort zones. Players will be tested in both the First and Third person perspective in PGI 2018.
The Bluezone will move slightly faster during certain phases on the game to increase action
Ranks matter, but so do kills when fighting over chicken. Teams will earn base points for their ranks and additional points for kills.
The bluezone just got a little more deadly for the Global Invitational. Players will have to move faster to stay within the limits of the blue circle, or they will suffer much more damage compared to a normal match. The amount of damage will be increased starting from the very first phase: what was .4% (damage per tick) will now be .6% and so on each phase. To avoid this, speed and efficiency will be the most important factors from the very beginning.
Points are awarded based on finishing position and kills. Each kill is worth 15 points. Here’s a breakdown of points based off match placement.
With its rough terrain and wide deserts, Miramar requires a totally different set of tactics. Pros will battle in the newest version of this Central American map, which was updated in April with new cover points and additional small building sets.
