PBIC 2018 was held for the second time in Korea since the first PBIC, which was in 2011.
It created a lot of dramas such as going double extra rounds between Signature.PB and Juventus,
and the first ever Indonesia VS Thailand Final in PB e-Sports history.
Let's look into how the teams performed in the tournament.
The seventh team to take a look is the runner-up, RRQ Endeavour from Indonesia.
Lifting the trophy in PBIC 2017, RRQ Endeavour came back to PBIC 2018 as a defending champion
with only one change in their squad, which is taLenT7, the MVP of PBIC 2013.
RRQ Endeavour is quite distinctive in their play style compared to other participants
due to the existence of the sniper, Nextjacks.
Unlike other players he brings in sniper in all maps and makes incredible clutches.
With RRQ Endeavour placing the PBIC trophy on the pillar, PBIC 2018 officially began.
In the group stage, they gathered all 3 wins against World Judge ESC, Pogiz.RascaL Gaming and Juventus.
However, there were some dangerous moments as well.
Against World Judge ESC, the match could have ended in an 9:9 draw
if Nextjacks did not make miraculous 3 vs 1 clutch at the last round.
Not only that, Nextjacks have shown 2 vs 1 clutch against Juventus and
just for a split second but Nextjacks had 5 vs 1 situation momentarily against Juventus
but he managed to claim a win in that round with 4 kills.
In the semifinal knockout stage, f1re was literally on fire,
recording 2.0 K/D with 28 kills and 14 deaths against AoeXe.
With Signature.PB winning against Juventus on the other side,
the first ever Indonesia VS Thailand final has been made in the 8 years of PB e-Sports history.
In the final, we have seen the highest level of play possible from both sides with Signature.PB winning in Provence
and RRQ Endeavour bouncing back in Downtown.
However Signature.PB got better of RRQ Endeavour in Sandstorm and lifted the trophy.
But most of Indonesian fans will be very proud of them and
RRQ Endeavour will be sure to come back for another trophy in 2019.
