Players Can Take An Online Course To Study PUBG

Players Can Take An Online Course To Study PUBG

From studying Game of Thrones to David Beckham, The Simpsons to Lady Gaga, we thought we'd seen every degree there was. There are already universities offering a degree in esports, but now, one man is offering a whole course on PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds. Although you can't quite put on a mortarboard and pick up a degree after learning everything there is to know about Erangel, Miramar, and Sanhok, it's still a must for the ultimate PUBG fan.

Since the release of PUBG in 2016, we've seen the online multiplayer dominate the world of competitive gaming and kick-start our current obsession with battle royale games. Yes, Fortnite might get a lot of the credit, but it's important to remember that PUBG is where it all started. This is probably why you can study a course in PUBG and not Epic Games' colourful battle royale brawler. Considering few of us would be willing to stump up the tuition fee to walk away with a degree in PUBG, this is the next best thing for those who want to take the title a little more seriously.

 

Can players really study PUBG?

Study PUBG Online

While this all sounds like some crazy plan cooked up by PUBG Corp to keep its massive playerbase engaged, you really can study PUBG thanks to pro-gamer and esports coach Nicholas “NicoThePico” Korsgård. His course is called "The Complete Guide To Player Unknown’s BattleGrounds" and consists of 30 lectures via the learning platform Udemy. Although NicoThePico's course is solely based on the PC version of PUBG, he promises the skills learned can be applied to the popular PUBG Mobile

The course isn't for amateurs as a simple "How to Play", meaning you'll need a pretty strong knowledge of how PUBG's maps and weapon classes work. Instead, Korsgård runs through various matches that he's already recorded and breaks them down into a step-by-step guide of how to improve your own tactics. On the whole, the tips and tricks he teaches could also be applied to other popular games like Call of Duty: Warzone or Garena Free Fire

 

What's it like studying PUBG?

Even though this isn't like going to university where you attend lectures and deep dive into the build of PUBG, it's a step up for those who want to improve their play. As the PUBG community continues to grow and more and more tournaments pop up all over the show, it's a shrewd move for anyone who's actually thinking about a career in esports. Nico is something of an esports superstar as a PUBG player, League of Legends personality, and former Head Coach of Fnatic Rising. It's clear he has a passion for PUBG, which is presumably why he's turned it into an online course.

If you're just a casual noob, a course in PUBG probably isn't for you, still, it's a way to get to know the game if you're a little more advanced. Nico has some stiff competition out there though. Tanner "WhiteLiqu0r" Evans is offering his own PUBG course, however, we're intrigued by one called "How To Play PUBG Effectively And Confirmed Chicken Dinner!". If you want to actually study a degree in esports, Staffordshire University is offering a BA (Hons) which is due to start in September. If you think you're the next Nicolai "dev1ce" Reedtz or Oleksandr "s1mple" Kostyliev, why not give it a go?
