The tournament will host the best teams of the world, but there is another point that might sadden the fans. PUBG invited all these teams, but there is a chance that teams might reject the invite. Since the world is dealing with COVID-19, organizations might not want to participate in this event.
This will be the first major of 2021. It is pretty sad that we will not be able to watch a major tournament at the very start of 2021, but it will be worth waiting. Watching the best teams from all around the world has been a great pleasure in every aspect of esports. We will see which teams will accept the invitation and participate in the opening major of the new year.
