2019 is set to close with a big bang as some of the best teams in the world will clash at the Peacekeeper Elite Championship in Xi’an, China on 28th and 29th of December. The tournament will be the biggest ever Peacekeeper Elite tournament to have taken place with top teams from China and the rest of the world locking horns. 



Dates, Format and Prize pool


It will be a 15 team tournament (3 from China and 12 from other regions) and a total of 8 maps will be played with 4 matches being played on each day. Only Erangel and Miramar will be played on TPP at PEC.  Roughly 430K USD will be on the line, with the winning team taking home nearly 160K. Matches will take place on the 28th and 29th of December. 



Teams


The three Chinese teams will obviously be favorites since they have been playing the version for longer than other teams. It will be the first time since PMCO Spring that XQF are in the same tournament as international teams. 4 Angry Men recently won the Peacekeeper Professional League and are considered one of the strongest teams from the region as well. Here’s a list of the teams attending.
