The battle royale genre has been beloved this year, and NetEase is using that love to make the holidays a bit greener — with $30,000! December 17th will mark the beginning of the Rules of Survival “Hunt the Streamer” event.
The rules for the contest are easy to break down:
- Join a match with the streamer according to their world server (EU, US, and Asia) and match type (Solo, Duo, and Squad).
- Find the streamer in-game. They will be wearing pumpkin-shaped helmets to show their status.
- Take ’em out. If you’re one of the lucky few to defeat a streamer, you’ll be placed in a lottery for $100, and you’ll win 1,000 in-game gold coins. Since there are 30 streamers announced for the event, this gives players a (statistically unlikely) possibility of winning $30,000.
Streamers who have been confirmed for the event include LIRIK and AnomalyXd. DrDisrespect, as pictured above, was originally meant to join the streamer hunt. However, he has announced he will cancel events and livestreaming after revealing infidelity to his wife.
The event will begin at 12:00 a.m. on December 17th and end at 11:59 p.m., lasting all day. What do you think? Will you try for a $100 cash prize on the 17th? Let us know what you think.
