Hungarian girl among the best e-Sportswomen in the world
21-year-old Anna Ráhel Vácz represents Hungary in the upcoming PUBG world tournament in Shanghai, hvg reports. She is the only Hungarian woman among the contestants.
PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds (PUBG) is an online multiplayer battle royale game developed and published by the PUBG Corporation. The concept of the game is pretty simple: up to 100 players parachute onto an island. They have to scavenge for weapons and equipment to kill others while avoiding getting killed themselves. The safe area of the game’s map decreases in size over time, forcing players to encounter others, so there is no camping in the bushes. The last player or team standing wins the round.
PUBG is extremely popular right now. So many people play it that creators decided to organize a PUBG World Cup in Shanghai this December. This tournament is for women only. Hungarian Anna Ráhel Vácz will represent Hungary at the competition.
Anna has been playing video games since she was six years old. She used to really like Counter-Strike. She is from Békéscsaba, and she is working as an optician.
The winner of the tournament wins a prize of USD 5,000.
Hvg asked Anna how she was feeling before the big competition, and they wrote that she feels honoured for being invited, and she is also very happy and excited about the world cup. In fact, she has already begun training for the competition.
