If we simply talk about the world’s most popular games then PUBG has to be one of the top ones on everyone’s list. The game is wildly popular throughout the world. There is no other game that brings the thrill and excitement like PUBG: BATTLEGROUNDS.
For people who follow the game with full dedication, there is some really great news for all of you. Just recently, KRAFTON who are the developers and publishers of PUBG: BATTLEGROUNDS have announced the full details for the PUBG Nations Cup 2022, also called PNC.
For those who don’t know, this is a global-scale Esports tournament based on PUBG: BATTLEGROUNDS. The event is going to take place in Bangkok, Thailand. This exciting and thrilling event will go on for four days.
The Event Schedule
The COVID-19 pandemic just bought the entire routine of events to a halt and after two years of waiting, we now have the announcement for PNC 2022. The last PUBG event like this with a live audience was the PUBG GLOBAL Championship. And that took place way back in November 2019.
If we talk about the timeline of the event, then the event is all set to take place from 16 June to 19 June. The location for the event is TRUE ICON Hall in ICONSIAM Mall which is located in Bangkok, Thailand.
The matches for the tournament are going to start at 1:00 PM CEST on all four days. Now, this is obviously new given that it is over two years since PUBG has conducted an event with a live audience. So KRAFTON is really optimistic and happy about the entire thing. As a result, they are going to give away free tickets to everyone on-site at the TRUE ICON Hall.
The capacity of the venue is around 1,200 people and the distribution will be first-come, first-served so make sure to reach there on time.
Event and Points Structure
There are four regions and each region has 4 countries in it. Each country will have a team of 4 players.
So here is how it is going to be:
- United Kingdom
- The United States
- Chinese Taipei
The strongest squad is coming from Europe as all of the countries are bringing in the best pro players. For instance, FaZe Clan or Fexx is going to represent the UK team. Then there is the mxey(Team Liquid) of Finland and Myca(Thunder) of Germany. Finally, there is Smash(BBL Esports) from Turkey. So these countries are bringing in the heat to make sure that the 2022 PNC Cup comes home.
There will be the typical “point rule” structure for PNC 2022. The structure is a combination of elimination points and placement points. Every day, there will be five matches in the event.
That is a total of 20 matches played on Erangel and Miramar. So by the end of the tournament, which is 20 matches, the team that will have the maximum points will become the PNC 2022 winner.
