Krafton Inc. has officially launched this year's Pick'em Challenge for the upcoming PUBG Global Championship 2021. You can take part in the event from now until December 18th, as you can obtain voting coupons through logging in and watching the various broadcasts or, if you're really inclined to do so, you can purchase exclusive event in-game items. The coupons can be used to predict the winners of PGC 2021 matches, and if you happen to do so successfully, you'll be awarded Esports Points (EP) to be redeemed for exclusive in-game items. And if you like supporting the game's esports system, you should know that 30% of Pick'em Challenge net sales will be added to the event's $2M prize pool. Here's more details of how to participate.
