PUBG Reddit now top of the pecking order

Congratulations to PUBG Reddit who egg-celled on the field of battle to claim victory in our third annual Chicken For Charity tournament last Friday. The event saw 20 teams from across the games industry come together to engage in an evening of competitive PUBG while raising money for SpecialEffect.

Last year’s champions Splash Damage struggled to repeat their previous form, but still managed a respectable fifth place, just two points behind Criterion in fourth. Third place went to Esports Wales, with the Ubisoft Reflections + Leamington team marking a very impressive debut by clinching second spot. No one could top the PUBG Reddit admins though, who put their eggs-pert knowledge to good use and secured their chicken dinners in fine style in the final game!

With a whopping £8,000 in donations registered on the night, Chicken For Charity has now raised over £33,000 in the past three years in support of our work with severely disabled gamers.

In addition to all of the participating teams, we’d like to take this opportunity to thank everyone involved in the Twitch broadcast, our hen-sational host Frankie Ward and our hilarious casters JoRoSaR and Klov3r, who were always yoking around! Behind the scenes, BELONG’s Martin Shearman-Brettle and his team worked wonders keeping the tournament and stream running smoothly.

Special mention to SEGA’s Charlotte Rouget-Murphy for all her hard (boiled) work recruiting teams and gathering prizes for the winners. Not to mention her enthusiasm for egg-based puns! Huge thanks as well to our event sponsors and partners who were so generous in their support, namely Hyper X, SEGA, PUBG, KFC, Noble Chairs and Koyo Store. We’re egg-ceptionally grateful to you all!
