New Contest! - Most Kills - Next Match
Up until this point, we’ve had support for what we call “same lobby” contests. This is where you create a challenge that requires all challengers to be in the same game, play mode, and lobby / match at the same time.
Now, we’ve added a new way to play that doesn’t require both users to be online at the same time.
In a “cross lobby” contest, you create a challenge that may be accepted by any other user that chooses the same game, play mode, and challenge type. Challengers can play their contest entries at different times, in different game lobbies/matches and the best score will win.
You will receive results and winnings when all contest entries are submitted. If you’re in a same-lobby contest or you are the final contestant in a cross-lobby contest, you’ll see the results right away. If you are the first competitor in a cross-lobby contest then you will receive the results once your opponent is found and they have completed their entry.
Want to play against a specific user or only with your friends rather than the next person that comes along? Don’t worry, that’s coming soon and will be available within the next few weeks.
Cross Lobby Contests
Call of Duty - Warzone
Bundled with the release of the cross lobby contests, we’ve included support for Call of Duty: Warzone. This incredibly popular battle royale first person shooter game can now have its fun amplified with even more excitement through cross-lobby competition.
Drop in and cash in on those wins!
Points Play Updates
When we first introduced points, they were only being awarded for participating in cash contests. Then we released the “Point play” mode that allowed users to earn points just for playing the game, as messaged in the app: Play for points only: no challenge, wagers or contests required. Points are awarded based on duration of gameplay.
We’ve been listening to the feedback of our users and also observing how the application has been used to guide what comes next for points. We’ve added protections against abuse and we’re also implementing a daily cap on points for the time-based awards. There is no cap on points for cash contest participants. We’re looking at adding more ways to earn and will further evolve this offering based on the valued feedback we’ve received so far.

User Profile Updates
We’ve completely redesigned the user profile experience, where we had a lot of functionality broken into separate pages, now everything can be found conveniently together on your profile.
You can directly access any portion of the profile from the username dropdown in the my.playchallenger.com web portal.
