The PUBG MOBILE STAR CHALLENGE (PMSC) is the first PUBG Mobile major international tournament organized by Tencent Games and PUBG Corporation. 20 teams from six regions will be competing for a share of the $600,000 prize pool in Dubai. The 20 teams that will compete in Dubai are selected from six regions by hosting individual regional tournaments. The tournament for the Asia region finished yesterday. It featured 20 teams from Thailand, Japan, China, India, Vietnam, South Korea, Philippines and Indonesia.
The tournament consisted of 6 Squad Matches on the Erangel map. The top 3 teams with the highest cumulative score at the end of the 6 matches win the tournament and qualify for the Global Finals in Dubai. Points scored by the teams depend on their placement rank after each match. They also score 15 points for each kill.
