Honor of Kings World Champion Cup (KCC) 2022: Overview

Tournament Format and Schedule

As of now, the mode of participation in the tournament is unknown. It might be held offline or online depending on the situation and travel restrictions. Currently, most tournaments are being held offline, so probably Honor of Kings World Champion Cup will be the same as well, especially given that it is an S-tier tournament besides being so expensive.

No specific date has been announced by the officials as of now, but it has been said that the tournament will be held at the end of 2022. We will be updating all the additional details as soon as official announcements arrive.

Participating Teams

The Honor of Kings World Champion Cup 2022 will feature teams from overseas for the first time since the year 2020. There will be a total of 16 teams participating to gain the highest honour for an esports player of the particular game and to share spoils from the $10 million prize pool.

  • Burmese Ghouls
  • Impunity

Prize Pool

The tournament features an extravagant and huge prize pool of $10 million, a number unheard of in the mobile gaming industry. Its closest competitor, PMGC, or the PUBG Mobile Global Championship comes second with a prize pool of $6 million.


As one can easily conclude, this tournament is a grand affair and nothing less than extraordinary. Tournaments like this are extremely high stakes which prompt the teams to perform in overdrive, which in turn entertains the audience more.
