Hello everyone, we've received permission from PUBG Corp to offer prize money for PUBG. This change will also require all squads players to have an active CG premium subscription to compete in all matches, including qualifiers and finals.
All PUBG players will be provided with roughly 2 weeks of CG premium due to the late notice. It will expire on the 31st of January, after it expires you will need to subscribe to continue competing.
The prize money for the season will be allocated as follows:
CGi / Division One ($4,000)

The Solo FPP season will remain free and will have a $750 prize pool. It'll likely change to also require premium and possibly join LAN as well for the following season if it is successful.
I'm sorry for the late notice for this change, as per the road map post this should allow us to continue to expand PUBG and have a LAN final for the following season.

Isn't it a bit unrealistic to expect ALL squad members to be premium users, especially with such short notice? I mean captains yea sure and perhaps mention if it goes towards the prize pool but considering a range of ages play this game and may or may not be competing forcing a subscription to compete in a competitive scene seems over the top.
Just my two cents.

I like that it's going towards the prize pool, and i do like what it is building into, I still kind of lean towards rather paying a upfront team fee to participate then subscription base to fund the prize pool. also for instance teams that have subs who may or may not play as well as teams with younger members seeing this and being a bit reluctant. Lets see how those first two weeks goes i guess i just don't really see anyone continue to subscribe once there knocked out or after the tournament. hopefully i'm wrong.
Good luck and thanks for organizing
