What is a pre-LAN tournament?

Each year before we all pile into one house for LAN, we hold a few tournament that are online-only. This coming Sunday, September 23 from 8:30 – 10:00 PM EST, we’ll be holding our first of three pre-LAN tournaments leading up to the big day. As with all of our events, we’ll be running things in such a way that newcomers to PUBG should have a blast (and have a chance at making it pretty far with some luck), as well as seasoned veterans. No need to be good at the game or have ever played before!

What’s up for grabs?

Our top 3 finishers will be awarded 1 marathon point (for determining who ends up at champ on LAN day), and our top finisher will have their choice of an additional MP or a raffle ticket for swag at LAN. One random participant will also receive an extra raffle ticket for LAN day.

Be patient with us! We’re trying something new.

This will be our first time trying a game other than Counter-strike in our signature “boiloff” format, so bear with us as we test out some ideas! A tournament in boiloff format is one in which we hold a series of rounds, and eliminate players each round until one champion remains. Eliminated players can still participate, but will place an “X” in front of their name to signify they have been eliminated. There will be one “bonus round” by which a player can re-enter play.

How will the tournament be run?

Here’s the format we’re planning, which assumes 24 players:

Round 1: War-Mode [All players are “in”]

  • Assault Rifles
  • Teams of 8

Bonus Round: Zombie Mode! [12 players left]
