There are two types of Pick’Em Challenges for PCS 1, and you can earn EPs by participating in the event.
1. Predict the champion of each region!
In the main game of the Pick’Em Challenge, you can predict the champion of each region with your voting coupon. If you purchase PCS 1 items, you can get up to six coupons. Also, you can have a chance to get one additional voting coupon for free while watching live broadcasts. * You can only vote once for each team.
List of the PCS 1 items:
- PCS 1 COMBAT SET + one voting coupon
- PCS 1 CLOTHING SET + one voting coupon
- PCS 1 - M16A4 + one voting coupon
- PCS 1 - MK47 MUTANT + one voting coupon
- PCS 1 - UMP45 + one voting coupon

If you win the game to predict the champions, you will get 100,000 EPs that can be used at the Esports Shop in each region. For example, if you successfully predict the champion of one region, you will be awarded 100,000 EPs, and if you predict the champion of all regions, you can get a total of 400,000 EPs.
2. Who is better?
We have one more game that allows players to acquire EPs by successfully predicting which team will finish with the higher rank.
This game can be played for free even if you don’t have voting coupons. You will get 2,000 EPs for each team if you win the game. For example, if you successfully predict the result of all rivals in one region, you will get 16,000 EPs. That said, if you win the game for every rival match in all regions, you can get a total of 64,000 EPs.
There are two ways you can obtain the voting coupon.
1) When you purchase any one of the six PCS 1-themed items (PCS 1 COMBAT SET, PCS 1 CLOTHING SET, PCS 1 - M16A4, PCS 1 - MK47 MUTANT, PCS 1 - UMP45, PCS 1 emote, you will be given one voting coupon (* only 1 coupon is earned per purchase).

A certain code for a voting coupon will be displayed during the broadcast, and people who quickly type in the code on the ”ADD EVENT CODE” section of the Pick’Em Challenge event tab in-game will each receive a voting coupon on a first come-first served basis. You can only obtain one voting coupon per account through this event.
