The first phase (Phase 1) of EWar PUBG Mahayudh Season 1, a squad-format mega PUBG Mobile Tournament organized by e-sports start-up EWar, has come to an end. During this phase held over a period of four days (from 18th June to 21st June), 21 of India’s widely known, professional ‘PUBG star gaming squads’ battled against each other, displaying powerful and mind-boggling gameplay. The 10 top-ranked ‘PRO’ teams from phase 1 have thereafter qualified to proceed to the final phase of the tournament, where they will be up against the Top 10 ‘underdog’ teams that ace Phase 2.
At the end of Day 4, Fnatic (a team by one of the leading global e-sports organizations) emerged as the clear winner of Phase 1 of the tournament with a fantastic score of 198 points (121 Place Points and 77 Kill Points), closely followed by MegaStars (187 points) and Reckoning (167 points). Besides these teams, the other ones that topped the leaderboard and were able to reach Phase 3 include Orange Rock, Hydra, RVNG, SynerGE, GodLike, 4King, and Celtz.
According to Team Fnatic, “It was a thrilling experience to participate and bag the top spot in the first phase of EWar’s Mahayudh tournament. We are grateful towards the EWar management team for inviting us.”
According to Owais, Team Fnatic,” The experience was really good and the competition was really tough. The best pubg mobile teams in the country participated in this and we took it as a challenge and gave our best. We are trying to build synergy as we have reformed the team recently. Also, the management was good too as all the matches were hosted and wrapped up on time. Me and my team would be looking forward to participate in such tournaments in future”
During the action-packed matches of Phase 1, Team Fnatic, comprising of the existing members Owais, Franky, and Ash, and experimental new member Maxcash, managed to surprise the audience with their brilliant gameplay and zone prediction. Team Orange Rock was also equally impressive with Scout and GiLL as their recently added team members. Notably, Arshpreet Singh aka ‘Gill’ emerged as the ‘Top Fragger’; with a total of 39 kills, he is now leading the race for the best-performing Fraggers in the tournament. A few intense ‘last zone’ moments with fierce attacks, counter-attacks, shoot-outs, etc. were also witnessed during the matches, and tournament shout-casters Mazy and Sparki kept the audience hooked through their live commentary in Hindi.
The tournament, which is being streamed live daily on EWar’s mobile app, has gained 700K+ views so far and total watch time of over 69K hours. The recorded versions of the games played during the tournament are available on EWar’s official Youtube channel. The top 5 teams and 1 top Fragger from each phase of the tournament will be rewarded with cash prizes.
This year’s EWar PUBG Mahayudh has a whopping prize pool of ₹2.5 lakhs; it is a first-of-its-kind opportunity for novice/amateur PUBG gamers across India to compete against the best and most popular names in India’s PUBG gaming circuit. In the next phase of the tournament (which has already began 22nd June onwards), 5000 registered ‘underdog’ squads from various parts of India will compete over a period of one month, and in 5 stages, i.e. Knock-Outs, Qualifiers, Quarter-Finals, Semi-Finals, and Finale.
