Krafton Inc. have once again teamed up with leading Oceanic esports media company and tournament provider LetsPlay.Live (LPL) to provide prize pool funding and international pathways for the upcoming season of LPL PUBG leagues.
LetsPlay.Live has a solid history of providing professional PUBG esports tournaments and world-class broadcasts since 2019. The partnership marks the second year running that Krafton has provided dedicated funding to LPL’s third-party events in the Oceanic region, recognising the tournament organiser’s history and commitment to PUBG Esports.
Funding from Krafton, Inc. will enable LPL to support the growth of ANZ PUBG across four divisions of prize pools - Open, Amateur, Challenger and Pro - in their three planned seasons this year.
Additionally, LPL Pro PUBG Season 1 2022 players will have the opportunity to compete towards international PUBG event pathways. The Top 2 teams at the end of the first season will be invited into the PCS7 OCE Qualifier later in the year – the official pathway for the PUBG Continental Series 7 APAC.
“We are pleased that Krafton is continuing to support the Oceanic region through LPL’s leagues,” says Duane Mutu, Managing Director of LetsPlay.Live. “LPL is excited to be offering not only leagues and prize money to our region’s players in 2022, but an international avenue for our region’s players in 2022. We look forward to showcasing the ANZ player base through our broadcasts for fans of PUBG worldwide.”
“We are continuing our partnership with LetsPlay.Live to power more community level PUBG: BATTLEGROUNDS tournaments and bolster our annual plan in the Oceanic region this year,” explains Everett Coleman, KRAFTON Director of Esports & Events. “We are excited to see LPL bring back their proven capabilities and passion for PUBG Esports for the second year of this collaboration.”
LPL PUBG Season 1 2022 begins July 11, with Pro division airing Monday evenings at twitch.tv/lpl_pubg.
