Popular PUBG personalities, streamers, and content creators will team up with rookie players at OMEN Challenge to compete for a prize pool of $150,000 at Gamescom.
There will be 20 teams of two facing each other throughout three days of the competition, with the winning team taking the entire prize pool. As an interesting addition to the usual tournament format, OMEN Challenge will feature an additional $50,000 in mini-competitions.
Each player will start off with $3,000 to their name, which at the same time will serve as a bounty. Every time a player gets a kill, they will get a percentage of that person’s bank. The percentage will increase as the tournament progresses. On the final day of the competition, the players will be able to steal as much as 75% of their victim’s bank.
Additionally, players will be able to get extra prizes for the “Shot of the Day” and “Shot of the Tournament” awards. Viewers on the streaming platform Twitch will be the ones deciding the winners, as they will be invited to vote on their favorite moments of the competition.
OMEN have already confirmed all of the influencers that will be taking part in the competition: CheatBanned, Aleria1992, CyanidePlaysGames, Lost, Aimbrot, Lillithy, Moman, Moondye7, Happy, Innocent, OnScreen, Rumin, Dahmien7, MCKYTV, Kittey, SunTouch, WhiteyDude, Wizzite, Mojoonpc, and Mazarin1k.
The 20 invited players will team up with 20 amateur players on the 22nd of August during Europe’s biggest trade fair for video game enthusiasts — Gamescom.
OMEN Challenge will be one of the two major PUBG competitions taking place at Gamescom next week. ESL Meisterschaft finals will be concluded there as well, with 16 of the best teams from the regular season competing for the lion’s share of $34,000 dollars.
The event starts at 14:00 CEST and you can watch it live on the OMEN Twitch channel.
