PICK‘EM CHALLENGE DETAILS
The Pick‘Em Challenge has returned for PCS4 and gives fans the opportunities to earn in-game rewards by correctly predicting the outcomes during each regional tournament.
- PCS4 Pick’Em Challenge consists of two distinct in-game events: “Pick The Winner” and “Team Face-Off”
- Similar to previous Pick‘Em Challenges, fans need voting coupons to “vote” on the outcome they think is most likely. Voting coupons can be obtained by purchasing thematic PCS4 items or by using “codes” that will appear during the PCS4 broadcast.
- Players who vote and correctly predict the outcome of matches will earn Esports Points (EP), which can be redeemed for additional in-game items. For the “Pick The Winner” event, participants can vote up to 7 times per region and will earn 100,000 EP per correct selection.
- A bonus “Chicken Challenge” event will take place on the official PUBG Twitch channel, allowing viewers to predict which team will win the most Chicken Dinners.
- As mentioned above, 30% of revenue generated from Pick‘Em challenge sales will be added to the PCS4 prize pool.
