PUBG Update 7.3 reintroduced the Pick ‘Em Challenge in time for PCS1 Finals
The PCS1 Finals are set to begin across four regions, but before they do, players can jump into PUBG following Update 7.3 and vote on the teams they think will win their region’s tournament. Similar to the way Pick ‘Em Challenge worked during the 2019 Global Championship, the PCS1 Pick ‘Em Challenge will reward players for correctly guessing the champion team in each region.
Voting Coupons are how players cast their vote for the team they believe will win the tournament, and they’re acquired by purchasing PCS1 themed weapon and clothing skins in the PUBG store. For each PCS1 item you purchase, you’ll earn one Voting Coupon, which you can then cast for any team across the four regions.
In addition to predicting the tournament winner with Voting Coupons for each individual region, PUBG has included a head to head matchup selection that will still reward players with Esports Points. Make a selection between two teams based on which one you believe will place higher when it’s all said and done. These predictions won’t require a Voting Coupon or any other purchase to make your choice, so be sure you select a team in all thirty-two matchups.

Making the right call on either the tournament winner or matchup winner will reward players with Esports Points, which they can then use to select their exclusive tournament skins from the in-game shop.
Predicting the one tournament champion will net you 100,000 EP, while each head to head matchup correctly predicted will earn you 2,000 EP. This is important because unlike the first Pick ‘Em Challenge where winners received a bundle of exclusive skins for their correct pick, players will now have options on which items they’d like to spend their EP on.
Item pricing varies, but the PCS1 – M416 skin will cost players the most at 42,000 EP, while the PCS1 – SKS and QBZ come in at 29,000 EP. If you’re able to predict a tournament champion, you will have exactly enough EP to select these three weapon skins with your earnings. If you’re not into these particular weapon skins, or maybe you already have one for these weapons you prefer, you can snag a PCS themed Pan, Level 3 Helmet, Gas Mask, or T-Shirts.
If you’re having difficulty deciding on which team to predict as the tournament champion, or you’d like some additional info on the teams that have qualified for PCS1 Finals, check out the Esports Tab and it’s ‘Teams’ page. Here you can find the rosters for each squad across all four regions, along with their placement during the Regional Qualifier.
Once the action begins, the ‘Teams’ and ‘Standings’ page will be a great spot to keep up with the tournament and check on how your predictions are holding up.
Be sure to get in-game before July 1 and predict the tournament champions, along with the 50/50 matchup selections for a chance of winning EP and PCS1 Exclusive items!
