Format and Capacity changes
With the several stages of ESL PUBG Masters: Summer we are introducing a couple of changes. After the massive support we saw for ESL PUBG Masters: Spring, we have decided to increase the capacity for our Open Qualifiers. This will not only increase the level of competition, but also provide as many teams as possible a gateway into qualifying to compete against the region’s best teams in the main event. Additionally, as a PGC-Point awarding event, we're adapting to the official competitive ruleset and implementing the "Most Chicken" format for the Main Event.
You can be part of this event too! With the capacity having gone up to a staggering 512 teams there is all the more reason to make sure you take part too. To register your squad make sure to go to the following page - esl.gg/pubg-masters-summer-qualifier

Besides the changes to the format and team capacity we are also introducing some special prizes. We are looking to reward players and squads for completing exciting objectives we will set, such as most kills, most squad wipes, and more. We expect to see pro-teams challenge themselves further and provide a chance for players who are looking to increase the bag with additional rewards.
