Tournament schedule and format
15 matches are expected to be played over the course of three days from April 27 to April 29. There will be 5 matches per day. The matches are locked to the first-person perspective only, ensuring a level playing field. In addition to the final standings, points are also awarded based on kills. During the early stages of the match I.e. during the first and second safe zones, a kill is worth two points while any kills taken from the third zone and later will count for only one point. This is expected to discourage camping and “waiting it out” for other players to fight among themselves.
As far as standings go, the points are distributed as follows:
