Here is The Update for May 13:
PUBG maintain top-5 in the NPL Phase 2 standings:
With a strong start to Phase 2 of the NPL on May 4-5, eUnited maintained their foot on the gas pedal and finished the second week of action in fourth place in the overall standings.
Saturday’s play began with a rough start, as the squad finished outside of the top-10 in each of the first three games, respectively, before an eighth place finish in the fourth and final game earned the team much needed placement points.
On Sunday, eUnited turned it around with a pair of high kill games that saw the team finish second and third in the lobby.
Our full season overview on eUnited’s PUBG team can be found here.
Play inside the OGN Super Arena continues this upcoming weekend.
With the help of an 8 kill 2nd place finish in the last game of the day, #eUPUBG work their way back into the top 4!— eUnited (@eUnited) May 13, 2019
We'll be back next week to keep climbing our way back to the top! #StandUnited pic.twitter.com/51VKiakVqz
Counter Strike set to take on NRG in ECS play
After a near two-month off period in the Esports Championship Series, eUnited Counter Strike will be back to face off against NRG Monday.
The single-elimination bracket tournament features top North American talents, with a $25,000 prize pool each week of play. The prize money taken home is especially important, as eUnited can still qualify for the finals of the ECS if they have the most prize money totaled by the end of the last tournament, which is on May 21-24.
The online event will be good practice for the last chance qualifier for the ESL Pro League Finals, which begin next week.
