Each region will play 3 total matches – and each match will be streamed live! During the stream we will be able to see the much awaited spectator feature in action. This will allow the broadcasters (and us!) to keep an eye on the most interesting parts of the game at all times while still getting a nice detailed overview of the match throughout. As far as the bracket: Again – each region will play 3 matches, with the winners chosen from those that have the highest overall placement from all 3 rounds.
Also – to make it a little sweeter – the player with the highest kill count in the invitational gets a brand spanking new Nvidia Geforce GTX1080ti, so we’re sure to see some great gameplay and intense moments throughout all of the matches as they all duke it out for the current king of gaming GPUs and of course much more importantly – winner of the 2017 PLAYERUNKNOWN’S BATTLEGROUNDS Charity Invitational!
