PUBG: PCS3 Format, Schedule and Teams

We've already had two fantastic tournaments this summer, and now it's time for the next — PUBG Continental Series 3.

PUBG: PCS3 Format

The format for PCS3 follows that of the last two events, with matches taking place over six play days across three weeks.

Teams will play four matches per day, with points earned for both placement and kills. The terms are simple — score the most points to earn the overall win!

Placement points are awarded for the top eight teams in a match, broken down as follows:

  • 1st: 10 points
  • 2nd: 6 points
  • 3rd: 5 points
  • 4th: 4 points
  • 5th: 3 points
  • 6th: 2 points
  • 7th-8th: 1 point

A kill earns one point.

The prize pool for each region stands at $200,000. This will be increased with revenue from PCS3 items sold in the in-game store, as follows:

  • 25% of all revenue from PCS3 items sold is added, of which:
  • 12.5% split evenly across all participating teams
  • 12.5% split evenly across the prize pools for each region
