NetEase Games' Rules of Survival had topped the charts of the App Store and Google Play Store since its debut in November and has announced their first E-Sport tournament, the Rules of Survival World Championship, where participants will be competing for a prize pool of $650,000.
Aiming on a global scale, NetEase will be reaching out to over 60 countries, where the top country will have special uniforms customized. The game servers will be divided into three regions: Asia, Europe and America. Each server will have a prize pool of $60,000 where the champions from each server will be rewarded $30,000. The winning team from each server will then be invited to China to compete in the offline grand final with nine other Chinese teams for a champion prize of $150,000.
The registration period for RoS World Champion ended last week on the 27th December. Each player must be Silver III rank or above to register and forming a team of four, placed in specific servers based on the team leader's nationality. Teams that register successfully will be given a variety of rewards, including exclusive garments only available in the RoS World Championship.
The Rules of Survival World Championship aims to take the competition to epic proportions and see which of these teams can truly survive till their last breath.
