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, November 4 from 8:30 – 10:30 PM EST, we’ll be holding our third 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 a “boiloff”?

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.

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, one boiloff round immunity, or a raffle ticket for swag at LAN. One random participant will also receive an extra raffle ticket for LAN day.

We’re tuning some things based on last time!

This will be our third attempt at PUBG in our signature “boiloff” format, and we’ll be incorporating some of your feedback after our last couple trial runs. We plan to try a few new things again so please be patient with us if one of our crazy ideas isn’t totally tuned yet! Here’s some of the general things we’ve tweaked since last time:

  • Trying Conquest Mode (new PUBG custom mode just made available)
  • For warmode, Overpower kits & no “down” state
  • Championship round will be teams instead of solo
  • Continued minor tweaks to various settings

How will the tournament be run?
