Classic PUBG controversies
In the lead up to the PUBG International Championship 2019 announcement, there was a bit of controversy. It is PUBG, right after all. Initially, the PUBG teams participating in the PGC have been supposed to have their personal in-game cosmetics for the occasion. Not only that, 25% of the income generated from these things would have gone straight to the teams and players.
PUBG Corporation mentioned the explanation the promised things had to be canceled was due to improvement complications. A lot more especially, it was due to an inability to assure the skins have been of a higher sufficient excellent to represent the organizations in PUBG. That situation could have arisen from poor style or a lack of excellent artwork on the portion of some of the organizations. PUBG Corporation’s excuse is acceptable if that was the case.
On the other hand, if the improvement complications have been the fault of PUBG and their style group, then they have massively let down the organizations they committed to supporting. Income share was an vital aspect for several of the teams joining the PGC.
By producing the PGC branded things rather and providing a significant portion of the income generated from them to the organizations by way of winning or reputation, PUBG has come up with a decent compromise. But it is also one particular that will advantage the top rated teams a lot more than the smaller sized teams, who could have to have the monetary assistance to continue to operate. Difficulties like this arising in the very first year of the PGC beg the query – what will occur to the occasion in 2020?
