The PUBG Mobile Club Open tournament is now over, and we have a winner. Chinese PUBG Mobile team Top Esports turned out to be the winner after 16 rounds in the finals. In fact the top three spots were claimed by Chinese teams. While Top Esports was the winner, team X-Quest grabbed the second spot, and Elite Gaming came in at third. Top Esports claimed the winner prize which amounted to a $180,000 cash prize. They scored 344, which put them in the first position. Team X-Quest had been leading the race for the first two days.
Team SOUL from India were being projected as one of the better teams in the tournament, but failed to make their mark. At the end of the final day, Team SOUL was in the number 12 position. They only managed to get one chicken dinner during the second day. But Team SOUL happens to be the first Indian team to represent themselves at a major international tournament. This shows that the Indian gaming scene is in-fact growing and this was definitely not a bad showing.
