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 fifth team to take a look is 4th place Art of eXecution(AoeXe) from Russia.
AoeXe has been dominant in PB e-Sports scene with 4 times finalist in 8 PBIC tournaments and lifting the trophy twice.
Whenever AoeXe participated in the tournament they have always advanced to at least semifinals.
But in PBWC 2018, it was quite a shock to see AoeXe knocked out in the group stage
with only 0.0083 Round Win/Lose rate difference against Brazil.
With 2 members changed from the PBWC 2018 squad, they showed dominant performance
against Taiwan and Peru and advanced to semifinal as 2nd place of Group B.
In the semifinal they faced the reigning champion RRQ Endeavor from Indonesia, creating a rematch of final of PBIC 2017.
They showed their best performance but unfortunate result was repeated like in 2017.
However, as the commentator GClef mentioned, the incredible 2 vs 4 save by Raiden and FreeD
was one of the best play in the Safe House in PBIC 2018.
Below, you can find out the players' performance in PBIC 2018.
