The new global PUBG Mobile tournament from Tencent Games and PUBG Corp has a $600,000 prize pool.
The PUBG Mobile Star Challenge, a new global tournament with a $600,000 prize pool, will kick off this weekend with a two-day European Final in Kiev, Ukraine.
The tournament finals will be held in Dubai at the end of the year.
Unfortunately the contest was only open to players who have over 1000 followers on either Twitch, YouTube Gaming, Facebook Live, Smashcast TV, Mixer, Cube TV, Nimo TV. However, entrants have been able to recruit up to three other players to their squad without any social requirements. It’s influencer marketing at its finest.
Squads from Europe, Asia, North America, South America, Japan/Korea and China are in the mix to battle it out for a share of the $600,000.
PUBG Mobile Star Challenge Prize Pool
- Global Final Champion: $200,000
- Runner-up: $100,000
- 3rd Place: $50,000
- Regional Final Champion: $20,000
- Regional Runner-up: $15,000
- 3rd Place: $10,000
In addition to the sizeable prize pool, tournament winners will become official PUBG Mobile partnered content creators.
Welcome to 2018.
We hate to ask, but...
Thumbsticks has a couple of goals. We want to write interesting articles and cover games that most outlets won't, and we want to give opportunities to new writers and new voices. And right now, with the current state of online publishing? It's tough to meet those goals! We hate to ask, but if you want us to continue writing what others won't, or to keep covering weird indie games, or to be able to give opportunities to new writers – and only if you can afford it – then please consider supporting us on Patreon.
