303 Royale League 2 Preview

Post 2.4.2020

PUBG is still going strong in April with an Online League by 303 Esports!

Last month started off great for our PUBG team, as they managed to secure a top 6 finish in the PGS: Berlin European Qualifier Finals and grab a spot in the main event. Now the boys have had some time to settle home and take a well deserved breather.

The next challenge, 303 Royale League 2 runs throughout April and finishes with a showdown between the best American and European teams. 16 teams from both regions will battle it out against teams of their own regions. The eight best teams of both groups will face each other in the Grand Finals event. The list of teams is as stacked as ever. Our European group will include the likes of Natus Vincere, Liquid, WTSG, and many more notable teams. Our group will play six games every Sunday three weeks.

With around a month since the last event, we asked the PUBG Coach SENTEX a bit about the team’s thoughts and preparation leading up to this particular league.

After the PGS Qualifiers we took a break for about a week. Since that, we’ve been scrimming for five times a week, as well as playing GLL Daily tournaments. The games have been going well and we have learned many new things that we will now get to try in a proper tournament setting.

It has been nearly a year since the last time the ENCE squad played in a big online event, and this is the first for the current lineup. The boys are prepared and find the small change of pace refreshing.

 

It’s nice to get to play online leagues and tournaments after almost a year break from them. Also it’s great to see most of the top European teams attending and to get a feel of how teams play online compared to LAN, which includes us too.

We’re going to reach for a top 3 finish, and we’re planning to continue what we started in the PGS Qualifiers, playing our own game and doing it well.
