These are some of the top Pick'Em challenge predictions and hopefully this helped you make a solid well-informed decision about your own picks.

Those confused as to how the Pick'Em works, here is a brief about what it actually is:

  • The pre-requisite to playing the Pick'Em challenge is that you should purchase the Antwerp 2022 Viewer Pass.

  • For the first two stages of the tournament - Challengers Stage and Legends Stage:

    You need to guess one team that will advance without losing a single match with a clean '3-0' scoreline.

    One team that will be eliminated without winning a single match with a '0-3' scoreline

    Seven other teams that are likely to qualify for the next stage.

  • In the Pick'Em predictions for the first two stages, you need to get at least five predictions correctly in order to upgrade the event coin and earn that Souvenir Token.

  • For the final stage of the tournament, you need to fill out the complete playoffs bracket and try predicting the following:

    Two teams to reach the semifinals.

    One team to reach the grand finals.

    The team that wins the PGL Antwerp Major 2022.

This covers all the information for the Pick'Em challenge, so now you can go ahead and claim that diamond event coin confidently without any further doubts and get up to three Souvenir Tokens along the way as well.
