A record has been broken in the mobile-sphere, and the Arena of Valor World Cup (AWC) is the culprit. In a recent press release, Garena has stated that the tournament’s prize pool has been set at 2,200,000 Malaysian Ringgit, totaling over 550,000 USD. This breaks the previous world record that Arena of Valor set during the Arena of Valor International Championship in November of 2017. Cash prizes will be awarded to teams and players for various accomplishments in the tournament, these ranging from their final standing in the competition to a number of special awards as well.
As can be expected from a tournament, one of the chief ways to get a prize is to best your enemies in glorious combat. The top eight teams will each receive prizes as follows (USD amounts rounded to nearest dollar):
|Ranking||Prize Money (RM/USD)|
|1st Place||800,000 / 205,708|
|2nd Place||400,000 / 102,854|
|3rd and 4th Place||200,000 / 51,427|
|5th – 8th Place||72,000 / 18,514|
A number of other prizes are additionally available, either for teams or individual players. These are as follows:
|Prize||Prize Money (RM/USD)|
|Most Tenacious||20,000 / 5,143|
|Most Creative||20,000 / 5,143|
|Single Match Victory (73 total)||2,000 / 514|
|Award||Description||Prize Money (RM/USD)|
|MVP||Most in-game MVP awards||
40,000 / 10,285
|Best Killer||Highest Number of Kills||14,000 / 3,600||
10,000 / 2,571
4,000 / 1,029
|Best Support||Highest Number of Assists||14,000 / 3,600||
10,000 / 2,571

|Most Creative Player||Most Creative Strategy with Unpopular Hero||6,000 / 1,543|
Teams will receive bonuses for each match they win, encouraging a competitive spirit at even the lowest branches of the bracket. The most notable prize in the team rewards, however, is definitely the Creativity awards. Garena explains this as a way to get new and interesting play styles into the game’s meta. Tournament participants should gear up for the occasional ADC Alice making her way to honorable battle.
The individual prizes are a nice addition, especially with the recognition of tanks and supports with prizes. Single players also have the chance to be individually recognized for unique game play. Hopefully the cash prize will offset the bitterness their team gives them for their attack-speed based Aleister.
