We have seen many great talents reaching the finals of this tournament, including the well-known FPS eSports team, Anubis Gaming and Savage Minions in the Egypt leg of the tournament, as well as Cocodrilos Esports and Osh-Tekk Warriors in KSA, and Valour Esports and Yalla Esports from the UAE Live event hosted at the PLG Arena powered by Omen by HP.

The finals of the PLG Nationals will be of a special nature. All eligible teams will compete against one another in one of the PLG circuit for such tournaments. The regional finals are scheduled to be played online with the Grand Finals to be played in LAN. This allows the national champions to represent their country in top-level competitions such as the PLG Grand Slam and many more run by PLG regionally and internationally.
