FirstBlood Survival Sunday League Details
Survival Sunday has a new league format for the year of 2019. Let’s dive into how to participate, the schedule, and the prize pools!
We are very pleased to announce our newest PUBG competitive league format with the Survival Sunday League.
2019 brings a new year to one of our favorite PUBG events, Survival Sunday. We will be changing our staple PUBG esports event from its current one-off format to a seasonal league format. With this new format, we believe players can enjoy the opportunity for more competition, chances to qualify, and ultimately a bigger final stage to compete on.
Even with a new league format, we kept the same qualification method to ensure those who deserve and earn a slot get one. With that, let’s dive into the league format!
2019 will have six seasons of competitive PUBG play in our Survival Sunday League. Each season will last approximately two months or eight weeks of competitive play. The first seven weeks will follow normal Survival Sunday event format (wherein teams must qualify through in-app qualifiers). The top two teams in each of the seven Survival Sunday events will receive an invitation to the Survival Sunday Finale on week 8, and the top 3 teams for every Survival Sunday League round and Survival Sunday Finale will receive cash prizes.
What if a team places in the first or second place in a previous Survival Sunday? If a team has already received an invitation, the next team down the final scoreboard will receive the invitation.
This qualification method for the finale event will result in fourteen invitations having been extended. The final two invitations (i.e. wildcards) will be extended based on certain metrics from the prior seven events. One invitation will be extended to the team with the highest non-qualifying score across all seven rounds, and another invitation will be extended to the team with the most kills in one round across all seven rounds.
The finale event will consist of the two wildcard teams and the fourteen top two teams from the prior seven events.
Each Survival Sunday League round will have the following payout structure:
- $720 split between top three
- First place takes $400
- Second place takes $200
- Third place takes $120
Each Survival Sunday Finale will have the following payout structure:
- $5,000 split between top three
- First place takes $3,000
- Second place takes $1,250
- Third place takes $750
Total prize pool per season adds up to $10,040.
