The J Balvin Cup is a duos tournament. This means that if players want to participate, they will need to partner up with a friend. Each team will get to play only 10 matches. And there’s also a three-hour window to take into account. The teams that earn the most points in each of the regions in the game and acquire themselves a top spot on the leaderboard will get the J Balvin Outfit as well as the Back Bling/Pickaxe. As of right now, participating in this tournament and doing really well is the only way to obtain the skin for free.
