Korean squad Gen.G have held onto their day one lead against a fast-finishing Four Angry Men (4AM) and FaZe Clan to take home the PUBG Global Championship 2019.

Gen.G have held onto their day one lead by the skin of their teeth to claim their first PUBG Global Championship win. After finishing ninth and 11th across both of their teams in 2018, they managed to storm to an early lead on Saturday and weather the storm on Sunday to claim the title.


They will be walking home with over $2 million for their efforts, after the community crowd-funded a prize pool of over $4 million.

The Korean champions took home the MET Asia Series earlier in the year, and looked to carry their PUBG Korea League form into the Los Angeles finals.


Gen.G finished day one of the grand finals with 56 points, five points ahead of the second-placed 4AM. They maintained a steady pace on Championship Sunday, although struggled through the middle of the day with a few low placements.

Heading into the final game two points behind then-leader 4AM, and with FaZe breathing down their neck, Gen.G just needed to find their way through the hard West shifting circle to claim the title.

After 4AM bowed out of the final game in 15th, and FaZe were forced to turtle early, the door was blown open for Gen.G to take the win.


They took the chance with two hands, sweeping up CJ Entus Force and other contenders to get a double-digit kill final game. While they were taken down in fourth, FaZe Clan were shot down shortly after, and their victory was secured.

FaZe Clan and 4AM ended up closing out the podium, although a fast finishing CJ Entus Force and VC Gaming looked to challenge them nearing the end of Match 6.

PUBG Mobile banned in India alongside 100+ China-linked apps

The Indian government has banned PUBG Mobile, one of the most popular mobile games in the country, along with over 100 more apps with links to Chinese publishers.

PUBG Mobile has a touchy history in India specifically. Countless news reports of teens becoming incredibly addicted to the game have filled Indian media for over two year. The game has been blamed for bad exam results, and in some extreme stories, death.


The controversy around PUBG Mobile in India has prompted calls for the government to ban it in the past, by a student association worried about its effect on education.

On September 2, India’s Interior Ministry banned the game, along with 118 other apps, citing concerns around cybersecurity, as tensions with China rise.

PUBG Mobile was one of the most popular games on iOS and Android in India.

They said the apps were “prejudicial to sovereignty and integrity of India, Defence of India, Security of State and Public Order.”

The move follows India’s previous bans of other Chinese social media apps, including TikTok.

In a statement, the Indian government said: “The Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology has received many complaints from various sources including several reports about misuse of some mobile apps available on Android and iOS platforms for stealing and surreptitiously transmitting users’ data in an unauthorized manner to servers which have locations outside of India. There has been a strong chorus in the public space to take strict action against apps that harm India’s sovereignty as well as the privacy of our citizens.”


Other banned apps, via TechCrunch, include Baidu, WeChat Work, Tencent Weiyun, Rise of Kingdoms, APUS Launcher, Tencent Weiyun, VPN for TikTok, Mobile Taobao, Youko, Sina News and CamCard.

PUBG Mobile is notable though, because of how wildly popular it was in the country. In March 2019, police actually arrested ten students who were playing the game because the game had been banned in that specific region.

“Our team caught these youths red-handed. They were taken into custody after they were found playing the PUBG game,” said Police inspector Rohit Raval at the time.
