In the PUBG Nations Cup, players represent their national teams instead of themselves or any organisation.
Much like many of the all-star competitions in other esports, it will feature players that have been voted for by eligible pro players.
There will be 16 teams contesting for the title: United Kingdom, United States, Vietnam, Chinese Taipei, South Korea, Thailand, Turkey, Japan, India, Germany, Denmark, China, Canada, Brazil, Australia, and Argentina.
After a two-year hiatus, the PUBG Nations Cup returned in 2022 with the UK winning the event in Bangkok, Thailand.
