Tips, tricks and tools for betting on Playerunknown's battlegrounds (PUBG)
PUBG was one of the first BR titles released in the wave of popularity in the genre. The game saw an explosion of success early on and has only kept on growing. Reportedly, PUBG is gaining 60k new players a week since going F2P, which is an incredible achievement. The most interesting thing about PUBG is how, despite being out of the gaming "hype sphere" it’s continued to be one of the most played games on Steam since its release.
The recent explosion of players on PUBG Mobile (mostly in Asian markets) shows that the game has no signs of slowing down just yet. PUBG continues to release new content, maps, and partnerships. While often offering players free items via PlayStation Plus or Twitch Prime.
Series winners - A bet placed on what team will win an overall series. Series can consist of a lot of maps, so it’s not always the side that wins the most maps that come out on top.
Map winner - Here, you’ll need to bet on what team wins a certain map. Remember, this isn’t just the last team alive, but the team that earns the most points. Most kills - Normally "winning" a BR game is about being the last team alive. However, kills play a huge part in PUBG Esports, which makes "Most Kills" such an interesting option. While it can come down to the sides they come up against, certain sides are notorious for being very aggressive (Team UK at the most recent PUBG international event comes to mind).
First Blood - like most shooters, first blood is a very common early game market. Like the above, this will likely come to a side that either plays aggressively OR camps a major choke point early. Often PUBG esports starts slowly, as sides loot up. However, a side camping a bridge is a valid tactic and a great option for a first blood bet.
An exciting future - It’s undeniable that PUBG is one of the most popular titles in Esports. While looking at it from a Western perspective, it might not seem that way. If you draw back the curtain on Asia (specifically India) you’ll see just how popular the title is. With over 200 million unique users since it launched, PUBG is a monster of a game.
Global Appeal - While we noted how big the game is in the East. PUBG is still huge in the Western world. It’s rare to find such a title, with LoL being one of the few good examples of it. This alone means PUBG has an unbelievable amount of potential, with active betting markets
Loads of markets - We’re yet to see an esports hit "football" levels of betting potential. However, one game is going to do it one day and PUBG/PUBG Mobile might just be it. As the pandemic slows, PUBG events will begin to appear globally, meaning more opportunities to bet on the esports.
Years of content - coming to a game late can be daunting. However, it can also provide you with an unbelievable level of content. PUBG now has 9 maps, 8 more than it launched with. With the game now being F2P, it’s unlikely to drop off any time soon.
"Realistic" setting - In a world of hyper skins and crazy cross-overs, PUBG esports at least has remained fairly serious. While the game itself has had a number of promotions (such as Black Pink), the esports side is a lot more restrictive. Teams normally just use weapon skins and "team colours" as their player skins.
Mobile is king - While PUBG first found success on PC, and later home consoles. PUBG really stepped up when it launched on mobile. In the past 12 months, the game has exploded and as a result the betting market has reacted. While different games, the two are interchangeable as far as mechanics go, though each of the games has different metas and teams.
Watch the pros - Watching how pro players play and act during games is key to improving your betting. Where each team likes to drop can be crucial when it comes to potential matchups. Remember, PUBG is never a 4v4, more like a 4v4 x 10. PUBG is a very active and high combat title.
Monitor results - Like the above, monitoring the form of teams is key to betting on PUBG. Going into a map or event, knowing how well each team performs is crucial. While a side might come into an event on form. They might have lost their last 5 matches on that tournament's specific map.
Play the game - We can’t stress enough how important it is to understand the game. While you can’t really simulate the style of play of the esports in regular play. You can learn the maps and the meta.
Re-tournament research - Do not go into an event blind. With so many variables within PUBG, it’s crucial to know what’s going on in the meta. From maps, form, and teams at the event, PUBG has a lot of different things that can affect the outcome.
PUBG is a great example of a top esports title. It has everything you could possibly want, and it’s still got so much more to offer. If you’re looking for an esport that is globally popular, still growing, and supported by the developers. Then PUBG is the game for you.
