Krafton, a South Korean online game company, has announced details for the PUBG Nations Cup 2022, a global competition featuring 16 national PUBG teams that will take place in Bangkok, Thailand, from June 16 to 19.

This is the game’s first edition after a two-year absence from the esports scene. It is also the first time a live crowd will watch PUBG since the PUBG Global Championship in November 2019, just before the COVID-19 outbreak.

The PUBG Nations Cup returns with 16 national teams competing for a piece of the $500,000 prize money, second and third place will be awarded $58,000 and $50,000, respectively.

Also, Krafton has confirmed that free tickets would be distributed on-site at ICONSIAM Mall at TRUE ICON Hall. Because the space has a maximum capacity of 1,200 people, tickets will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis, meaning early birds are most likely to get slots than others.

Whilst the $500,000 prize pool is still below PUBG Mobile’s previous worldwide tournament’s $600,000, PNC 2022’s award could be raised by the sale of in-game items. Krafton has disclosed that the prize pool for the competition would be funded by 30% of the revenue from in-game purchases.

Unlike other PUBG events, the best players in the PNC are selected by their teammates to represent their zone as the official representative. Only the best battle gamers will get a chance at fame and, of course, a piece of the prize money.

The competition will feature 64 participants from 16 different territories from four different regions. Amongst them are the United Kingdom, Finland, Turkey, and Germany from Europe; from the Americas are Canada, Brazil, Argentina, and the United States; the Asia Pacific including, Thailand, Vietnam, Indonesia, and Australia; and then Asia consists of Korea, China, Japan, Chinese Taipei.

Europe is likely to be the focus of attention across all areas. This is as a result of the powerful and renowned players from each territory that was selected to represent their team. Some of which are: Christopher “Fexx” Wheddon of FaZe Clan for the UK; Anssi “mxey” Pekkonen of Team Liquid for Finland; Tim “Myca” Bodenseh of shiftW for Germany and Furkan “Smashbae” Sanli of BBL Esports for Turkey.

The PNC 2022 will use a “point rule” format that incorporates both elimination and placement points. On Erangel and Miramar five games will be contested per day, for a sum total of 20 matches. After 20 matches, the team with the overall highest points will be crowned the winner.

The PNC 2022 will be broadcast on PUBG’s official platforms on Twitch, YouTube, and Facebook.

The 2019 PUBG Global Championship

The PUBG Global Championship 2019 is the last tournament that was hosted as a result of the Covid-19 outbreak.

The competition featured 32 of the best teams from nine different regions. A group stage, an elimination stage, a playoff, and a grand finale were all part of the PUBG Global Championship 2019. The initial first three stages took place within the confines of the OGN Super Arena in Los Angeles, California.

The Cup Final was held in Auckland on November 23rd and 24th. And the tournament champion was crowned in Oakland Arena, as the winner clinched $2,000,000 from a total prize fund of $4,000,000.
