Pick’em Challenge Returns
The Pick ‘Em Challenge is also making a comeback for PNC 2022, with PC and console players able to purchase PNC 2022 items in PUBG: BATTLEGROUNDS until June 17 (PC) and June 29 (console) respectively. Thirty percent of the net sales will be contributed to the overall prize pool and distributed to participating teams. During PNC 2022, fans can “vote” for the teams they believe will win select matches in order to earn Esports Points (EP). EP can then be exchanged for exclusive PNC 2022 gear in the in-game store. 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 PNC items or by using “codes” that will appear during a PNC broadcast. Each fan can vote up to seven times and will earn 100,000 EP per correct selection.
