The Pick'em Challenge has returned for PCS5 and gives fans the opportunities to earn in-game rewards by correctly predicting the outcomes during each regional tournament.

  • Taking place between Sept. 8 and Sept. 30, the PCS5 Pick'em Challenge consists of two distinct events: "Pick The Winner" and "Team Face-Off"

  • Similar to previous Pick'em Challenges, fans need voting coupons to "vote" on the outcome they think is most likely. Voting coupons can be obtained by purchasing thematic PCS5 items or by using "codes" that will appear during a PCS5 broadcast.

  • Players who vote and correctly predict the outcome of matches will earn Esports Points (EP), which can be redeemed for additional in-game items. For the "Pick The Winner" event, participants can vote up to 7 times per region and will earn 100,000 EP per correct selection.

  • As mentioned above, 30% of revenue generated from Pick'em challenge sales will be added to the PCS5 prize pool.
