Overview

October Curse Trials raised the bar of PUBG competitive scene once again this weekend. In this October’s edition of the monthly community event, some of the most skilled challengers from the public ladder took on prominent Twitch streamers and professional players.

The format for the PUBG Curse Trials tournament was designed around two-player teams, the so called “duos.” It was a first-person only matchup with custom map settings – AR spawns were doubled, there were 50% more ammunition spawns, the red zone (bombs) was turned off and players were unable to use their own clothes skins combinations to prevent any OP camo setups. The location of the server for the event was in Central United States, with the familiar caster duo Travis and Alex from Curse.

Over the span of 3 days, there were a total of 23 games played. First two days were dedicated for qualifiers, with groups A, B and C scheduled for October 13th. Groups D, E and F took place the following day, October 14th. Each group played a total of 3 games, with points awarded after each one according to the following scheme:

 

1st  Place 100 Points
2nd  Place 90 Points
3rd – 4th  Place 80 Points
5th – 6th  Place 70 Points
7th – 8th  Place 60 Points
9th – 10th  Place 50 Points
11th – 15th  Place 40 Points
16th – 20th  Place 30 Points
21st  – 25th  Place 20 Points
26th – 30th  Place 15 Points
31st  – 35th  Place 10 Points
36th – 40th  Place 5 Points
41st  – 50th  Place 0 Points
Additional Points +2 Point Per Kill

 

The 6 best teams from every group got to advance to the finals on October 15th. There were 5 total games played, with the point structure and kill bonuses remaining the same as in Qualifiers.

Overall, the five best teams were awarded the Exclusive Curse Trials prize crates and Curse Trials apparel, sponsored by none other than Alienware. The top team also received a hand-crafted Curse Trials Trophy on top of pride, honor and undisputed bragging rights for winning the tournament.

If you’ve been following the PUBG competitive scene lately, you’ll recognize lots of familiar names on these lists. For such a young game, the interest in these competitive events is at an all time high.

The Thrilling Finals

PUBG and battle royale as a genre overall definitely feature a certain level of luck, but this is offset by bigger number of games. With 5 games in total, all the 36 qualified teams had ample opportunities to showcase their skills.

The top 5 duos all definitely deserved the spots and the prizes:

 

Standing Player 1 Name Player 2 Name Placement G1 Kills G1 Placement G2 Kills G2 Placement G3 Kills G3 Placement G4 Kills G4 Placement G5 Kills G5 Total Points
1 twitchtvMoodyIRL Frolicer 4 5 14 1 2 4 17 0 1 8 376
2 St8Ty Zelendra 10 0 2 6 1 7 20 0 6 4 374

You’ll probably recognize EnergeticTurtle and Aitzy as members of Team Method, who recently also participated in Uproar’s “The Golden Chicken” invitational tournament and won 2 out of 3 games. There’s also a Tempo Storm duo Sambty & YaBoiDre on the 4th spot.

The main topic after the finals has definitely been the point differential between the first two teams. With 2 measly points more, which is what one kill was worth, Moody and Frolicer managed to snatch a first place above Zelendra and St8Ty. With close to 400 points total, such a small difference is almost unbelievable!
