So if you’re a PUBG fan by now you’ve likely heard the news that the European League (PEL) as we knew it in 2019 is no more. I’m interested to see how PUBG goes from here. Many of the bigger organisations have dropped their rosters. For that many teams to drop out, is kind of concerning.
I’ve recently started following an esports journalist on Twitter, Adam Fitch, and while the name might be new he writes some interesting pieces around esports. His take on the PUBG Leagues has been hard hitting but also he raises some interesting questions around the title as a competitive esport:
Another one bites the dust but, as people keep saying, this year looks so promising for PUBG esports. That’s why all of these organisations are dropping out regardless, right? https://t.co/4zOqzm0YWj https://t.co/o4j3p0A0Zk

I’d suggest giving him a follow if you’re interested in deep diving into the current behind the scenes stuff happening in PUBG. Alternatively subscribe to Esports Insider’s mailer, as most of the information becomes available there and a lot of Fitch’s writing is available there too.
This isn’t a doom and gloom post though. I actually wanted to share a behind the scenes vlog I shot last year during promotions week for PEL 2019. This was my last event of the year and also a big one for me as I got to work with Paul ‘Redeye’ Chaloner again – the man who helped get me started in esports. I also had a chance to work with Lauren “Pansy” Scott, who is an idol of mine. This entire team actually, all the folks I worked with during my time in PEL were amazing. I learnt so damn much and had the absolute best time every time I was in Berlin. Here’s a look at the behind the scenes vlog… hopefully I can do more PUBG this year:
