The Peacekeeper Elite Championship (PEC) was announced back in August by Tencent Games. It is the second World Championship of “Peacekeeper Elite”, also known as “Game for Peace”. It’s a Chinese rebranded version of PUBG Mobile. Since PUBG Mobile World League season 0 wasn’t an offline / local event due to the COVID19 pandemic, the PEC 2020 is going to be one.
Top 15 teams from all over the world will be participating in a tournament having a huge prize pool. However, in August, only three teams were revealed but now most of them have been announced which you’ll see below.
Tournament Format and Date
- Just like the 2019 tournament, the 2020 version might have the same format. If that’ll be the case, then we’ll be seeing the top teams battling it out in a squad TPP with 4 matches to be played for two days.
- As for the dates, Tencent already announced in August that the PEC 2020 will be played from 13th to 15th of November.
Organizers and Sponsor
- Tencent Games, PUBG Corporation, Lightspeed Quantum Studio along with VSPN will be the organizers of the 2nd edition of PEC.
- On the other hand, Juss Sports is going to sponsor the whole tournament.
