Event mode FAQ
Last week the event mode was presented to the community and this weekend already we are able to test flare gun on it. To answer all the possible questions on the subject the dev team has prepared a little guide:
What is the Event Mode?
You can think of the Event Mode as a periodically changing preset Custom Game where we will be trying new things and experimenting with different game parameters. Using the Event Mode, players will be able to have a Battle Royale experiences otherwise not available in the public matches. But it’s designed to be much more than just a preset Custom Game, as Event Mode will feature new content, much of it available in the game only for a limited time.
Who can play in the Event Mode?
Anyone with a copy of PUBG can play in the Event Mode.
Is the Event Mode going to be available all the time?
The Event Mode is limited in nature. What kind of match settings and new content we will be running in the Event Mode will be changing and won’t be available at all times. We will keep you informed via announcements when the next iteration of the Even Mode is coming up.
Can we earn BP in the Event Mode?
Every player will receive BP at the end of a match according to their performance.
Does playing in the Event Mode affect my ranking?
No, it doesn’t.
How do I play in the Event Mode?
While the Event Mode is on, a new UI item will appear on top of the match start UI in the left bottom corner of the main menu. Click EVENT to play in the Event Mode and CLASSIC to play a normal public match.
Is ping based matchmaking applied to the Event Mode?
Yes, it is.
Can I play with my friends in a squad?
You can form a squad using the invite system just like you would do in a public match. But, please note that the maximum number of players per pre-made squad is limited to four, other slots have to be filled with random players. (We are looking into improving this system).
