If you’ve followed Wildcard’s PUBG journey over the last two years you know that we pride ourselves on our team and accomplishments. During NPL Phase 2 we played our way into the Relegation portion of the league. Eventually we were relegated, it was our lowest point in our PUBG history. It sent shock throughout our community of fans and supporters as well as the PUBG community as a whole. Wildcard has been a staple name in the game for some time. Going into relegations has forced us to take a look at what we’ve been doing and what we need to do to improve moving forward. After taking several weeks to review the situation we were forced to make some very tough calls that resulted in dropping our former roster.
Moving forward we have some big news that we wanted to take the time to explain. Wildcard has been approved by the PUBG League to give our NPLC slot to another organization, which in turn left us open to have a slot in the professional league. This move allowed us to purchase another NPL slot for Phase 3 from Simplicity Esports.
Wildcard has been a staple PUBG Esport organization for a while and we intend on keeping it that way. Our fans and supporters deserve the professional quality content they’re used to from Wildcard and so this decision allows us to keep giving them exactly that. Over the next couple weeks we’ll be finalizing our new roster and we hope to represent North America at the World Championships in November.
We would like to take a moment to thank Simplicity Esports for this opportunity to get back into the NPL for Phase 3. They certainly made the process an enjoyable experience and it was handled not only professionally but efficiently. So from Wildcard to Simplicity- We thank you!
Over these next few weeks we’ll be working hard to bring you the best PUBG content we can, as well as the best team that we can. Stay tuned for more updates about our roster and as always we thank you for your support! #stackthedeck
